(this will probably be added to and revised as I am able to post and look over the video coverage of the trial. I see that WBIR has censored one of the videos- that is cowardly- they have covered almost everything, they shouldn’t be cowards about that)
The crime “cries out for justice and the maximum punishment this state can impose,” Assistant District Attorney Leland Price. However, the jury in Nashville (trial had been moved) decided it was ‘fair’ or ‘just’ to sentence him to life without parole.

Unbelievable, yet true. Video chronicles the statements from family, reaction to verdict. http://www.wbir.com/video/default.aspx?aid=83344
You know who gets the sentence of death? The families do. They must simultaneously serve a life sentence of grief and rage AND get a death penalty- that of losing their precious children, while the family of the defendant gets up there and cries about NotWorthaName’s (aka ******w/0 a name) underprivileged childhood. He is nameless in conversation, he is only named as a word tag so people can find the blog, articles about the case – his name no longer means anything- he is defendant #2- as a blog tag word his name might as well be the same as defendant #1, or #3, or #4- for all it means. The Italian/Roman way is to say “you are dead to me”, which is the name or the person is not spoken of past that fact, they are for all intents and purposes, dead. I don’t want to hear this crap about dehumanizing such vile fiends. That is their speciality, not mine.
Mr. Defense Attorney Scott Green whines about getting threats and how “hard it has been on my family…no one is a winner here, blah blah..” how that guy sleeps at night knowing that moving the trial to an area that would no doubt have a higher incidence of the ‘go easy on the brutha cuz he a oppressed black like me’ got this scum saved from the gallows, thus exponentially increasing the Christian and Newsom’s suffering. From studying extensively about grief and suffering- there is this word ‘closure’- this Oprah-ish TV/ZOG-psych word invented to make people feel better- but like many words, it is made-up. There is no ‘closure’ , there truly is no end to the suffering, suffering that is compounded by the sense there is sympathy enough to spare defendant #2’s life, but not enough to dispense real justice, and eye for an eye, even if compared to what those kids went through, even death would only be 1/4 of an eye.
Teddy bears and balloons stuck to fences, and candlelight vigils- I have a hard time with that kind of thing, as I prefer ‘closure’ that is swift and bloody. Perhaps it is simply my own racial memories of ancient times, but I much prefer the immediacy of throwing them to the lions than simply watching them gloomily traipse away to stares of consternation. For all the black imitation and fascination with mafia, defendant #2 is lucky his punishment is not coming down that way, because it wouldn’t only be HIS life. D2 didn’t kill the parents, although he sentenced them and other family to a lifetime of grief-but if D2 were to be punished mafia style- it would be D2’s family they would go after- so he could not only feel the suffering of the loss, but feel the guilt it was HIS actions that caused the family member to lose their life. We’re too civilized for our own good. Civilization for the civilized. Tearing and rending for the savages- or at the leaat- lethal injection- if that is the most we can legally do. How can I help but think of how things would have been handled in the Old Days? How can that thought not go through the many heads of those who have followed this case? How can the image of this
NOT enter our heads when the official justice system is so lacking?
If this were the Old Days, perhaps this crime would never have happened to begin with, because they would not so casually approach Christian and Newsom as they did “Hey, some White people to victimize just fell into our laps! Cool!” . The ‘politically correct’ corollary to the above picture of the klansman on horseback is one most of us are familiar with- that of the man hanging from a tree while a crowd stands beneath it, as if gathered for the occasion, for the picture. I tried and could not find this old picture, but I am certain we all know the one I am referring to. It is the one entrenched into the White Guilt collective unconscious yet when one applies that template over the defendants in this case, somehow all that media imposed ‘slavery guilt’ magically washes away, like ring around the collar. I don’t know the story behind that picture, but I plan to try and find that picture and ask some questions about it- because that photo is the quintessential burned-into-our-retinas Klan/Deliverance/Redneck Horror Movie image.
We are not so worried here about LaQueesha wanting her gangsta brother around, so he can be a role model for her own daddy-less brood. Would the world be a better place without the defendants in this case ? Would we be better off if we didn’t have to pay for their support for ? these defendants are young- if they don’t get killed in prison, we could end up supportng them until…well until the prison determines we can’t afford them anymore and lets them out- like out here in CA. In any case, we shouldn’t have to support them, while on TV on c-span, elderly are worried about their medi-care. This just isn’t right. The damage these defendants and their ilk have caused is epic. Aren’t we tired of it? Here’s a really radical thought- Instead of screwing the old people out of their treatments, why don’t we have Civil Rights reform? That means you get civil rights if you can PROVE you can BE CIVILIZED. Then,and follow me here, this is really logical- you develop a criminal record, you start racking up felonies- POOF, you start losing civil rights. I mean, it is called CIVIL, right? One would think blacks would be all for this, because instantly their neighborhoods would become a lot safer, although the ‘economy’ of drugs and gangs would end, because those who had forfeited their rights would place themselves at risk of law enforcement should they violate their constraints. Wouldn’t it be nice if your kids could play outside again? If there even was a grocery you could walk to? The defendants in this case would have benefitted from some kind of curfew or partial house arrest? None of this might have happened. There might even be a brave volunteer force who would police the streets , or the state could even pay for this force. If there were to be a real ‘Channon’s Law’ or ‘Christopher’s Law’, it would truly have to encompass taking those who are dangerous OFF the streets, not some technically removed and not real-time invention, like after-the-fact alerts for missing kids. Let’s address the CAUSE, and be pro-active. Harsher punishments, stricter controls over PEOPLE. Ankle bracelets- whatever it takes-this anger-management stuff is a joke. It doesn’t work on the defendants, and Gary Christian shouldn’t be talked out of being angry- it is a healthy response – we women tend to cry more, men tend to want to break things. I don’t think Mr. Christian’s rage is sick or inappropriate, I think it is very appropriate and even admirable. I could only wish my own dad loved me half as much in life as much as Gary Christian loves his daughter in death.
It made my heart hurt , made me want to cry when I heard Mr. Christian speak about how he had sought out the ‘help’ of a doctor to get past the ‘hate’-though he may have sought help in hopes it would improve his own situation, ease his own suffering, but he has probably since realized this is something affirmations and relaxation tapes of crickets and ocean waves are not going to take away. Mr. Christian- you and the other family members have the right to ‘hate’- remember- that is the language of ‘correctness’, not the language of reality and the emotions that go with what you have been through. You did not get there without help. You were ushered unwillingly into that world. He is haunted by the sense of guilt that he could have saved her, that perhaps she was still alive in the garbage when Mr. Christian found the truck. I hope he gets to a point in understanding that it is not HIS fault he could not save his daughter- as a father he no doubt feels repsonsible for her well-being- but the truth is- she did nothing wrong- and no one believes or cares about D2’s story-any of it. He doesn’t count. Here comes the scary, unequal part. Your daughter’s life (and that of Chris as well) were worth more than his, by leagues.
It is not your fault, Mr. Christian- that these savages are roaming around looking for easy targets to victimize. They already seemed to have a cadre of willing White victims and ‘helpers’- why not step over the line and take the unwilling? You did not cause this. It is not your fault that We can not seem to fix the black crime (the PC calls it in code poverty and social inequity BS language). The PC excuse language implies that an excuse for what they do is that their lives dictate their behavior- that logically – they don’t have a choice, they must rape and kill. However , the PC liberal do-gooder psychos blame all this on schools, no dad, money- that they can’t help themselves from doing things like this because their lives suck so bad- that life sucking takes away free will- If this is the case, it is not an argument for an excuse and one that we need to try and endlessly fix without results, that is a non-sequitur- it is an argument for right’s reform, and repatriation.
That stuff is the exact opposite of what I would recommend. He is – as are the other family members- entitled to his rage- and this rage never completely dies out- it just goes from a four-alarm fire to smoldering ashes after years of burning. It is clear in watching the families that what is not taken away from them is that they have each other through this. It is clear Mrs. Christian seems to be the rock that keeps Mr. Christian’s boat moored. The Newsoms, who seem to be closer to my own parent’s age also seem to quietly support each other in the hell it must be to attend these trials. Mrs. Newsom is also unafraid to speak up, and right she was when she said defendant #2 has not learned anything from this, because he is not getting the punishment he deserves.
It made me almost sick to see the courtroom hallway interviews of defendant #2’s family trying to pretend civility and a kind of holy roller sanctimoniousness “I don’t really have a whole lot to say.. yeah , it was wrong…(both get the victim’s names wrong )- as for the death penalty- I think that is up to God..blah blah..” I still feel sick that they were allowed to say anything at ALL, or to even be there, let alone spout their vile and undeserved self-righteousness while invoking the name of God. They should be hanging their heads and crying with shame and begging forgiveness. Not flouting their endless daddyless offspring on their hip while waxing on in the “We may be related to rapist/torture-race-hate killers, but we really are good people- so good we don’t think anyone has the right to kill but God..” La di Da you are so full of crap LaQuitta , LaChicquitaBanana or whatever the Hell ghetto-French name it is.
“We have tried everything we know, we have sought the help of a doctor, to try to deal with the hate that we live with…and the endless thoughts of the pain..and the horror…that she endured..and the pictures that have been put into our minds of her last hours…” http://www.wbir.com/video/default.aspx?aid=83344
In hearing the parents speak about their daughter, their lives with her as a family- the fact that they had a family unit, the things she loved to do to have fun, the clean lives they lived- and that so many people in turn that loved HER- one cannot help but wonder if the jury did not feel defendant #2 deserved death because on some level- they resent Channon (and Chris too) for being so loved, for having a stable family who valued them- that the piss-poor feel-sorry-for-defendant #2-and-me-too from his family is yet another defese tactic to play to a black jury. ‘Don’t feel sorry for these privileged White folk, they hadit better in their short lives than all of you put together will have.’ is the message – and that message is sick., the implicit messages that play to the jury listening to the sob stories of the relatives “Oh Puh_LEEZE don’t kill mah brutha!” -and don’t tell me moving the trial didn’t contain a racial agenda- counting on the fact that blacks support each other no matter what, no matter how bad the crime- the OJ factor- the Let Channon and Chris’s deaths be part of ‘reparations’, let them be the martyrs for YOUR anger and HATE over what YOU can NEVER be, never HAVE. Your brutha will no doubt live longer being taken care of by big daddy state than he would ever live out on his own.
Orthopraxis is a term derived from Greek (ὀρθοπραξις) meaning “correct action/activity”- I suppose the opposite of that would be malapaxis? Maybe I am confusing Greek and Latin, but one gets the idea. Wiki contrasts this word to ‘orthodoxy’, but I don’t think the two are at odds- one is belief/thought , one is action. I see the crimes that these low-lifes committed, but in one of my recent posts about the underground railroad of White self-loathing, I also saw how they preyed upon weaker Whites as their ‘friends’ (people to use), and caused (more) problems to these white people without signing on to being connected to a murder trial. Those whites could be considered ‘throwaways’. As I have said before- there is small bad, then there is Bad. Lesson: Gee, with all the things we already have to worry about in this world, what is it we need to avoid to avoid certain misery, White people reading this? Can you figure it out for yourselves? I wish I could say I was a good and noble enough soul to not be pro-torture, but I can’t. Name-calling ‘you hater’ crap is baby-stuff compared to the either ancient or medieval ideas one could come up with for this crew. Going to prison is standard fare, and killing them takes forever, though I believe that is the right way to go in this case.
People with so little respect for human life are not usually equipped to worry about how much prison sucks. Does a rabid dog stop to consider how being put down at the SPCA is not going to be pleasant? Does a hyena or a silverback worry about the consequences of attacking its prey? No, it just does it, because it can’t do anything else. What happened to Channon and Chris was like a ghetto form of National Geographic- it isn’t hyena chasing gazelle but it is the same concept. When they look at us, they are not seeing in us a reflection of themselves, they are seeing us as a hungry animal sees us, something to be exploited or killed for their wants- from nigerian email scams to double-rape-torture-murders , are you tired of you , your children, your women- being the prey? If the ubiquitous RAHOWA comes down, I envision it not to be formal and organized, with clearly defined lines and rules of engagement-but animalistic and chaotic. Guess what, people, it’s already here.
