The Duke Rape Case

Jack Dunphy is "nom de cyber" used by an LAPD officer who writes what we can only describe as very enlightening articles, mostly for National Review. He doesn't disappoint with his latest:
  • It may seem like ancient history now, but it was only a year ago that we were first subjected to the media circus that was the so-called and now-dropped Duke Rape Case. For months thereafter, you couldn’t pick up a newspaper or turn on the television or radio without learning some new tidbit about the accused lacrosse players, even as their accuser remained shrouded in mystery. Today we know there was no rape and now not even a case at all, but even in those early days it was apparent enough that there were glaring problems with the accuser’s story (or, as it happened, stories). But not even those problems prevented the case from consuming the attention of the sages in our national media, whose foot soldiers decamped from New York and Los Angeles and such places to descend on Durham, North Carolina, as quickly as they could find it on the map.
  • Compare the attention given the Duke case with that accorded a far more heinous crime, one whose victims have thus far failed to arouse the sympathies or even the notice of those who found so much enjoyment in their condemnation of the lacrosse players. Chances are, unless you live in Tennessee, you will not recognize the names Channon Christian and Christopher Newsom. Christian, 21, and Newsome, 23, both of Knoxville, were driving through that city together on the night of January 6 when they were kidnapped and murdered. Newsome’s burned body was found along some railroad tracks on January 7. Christian remained missing for two more days until her body, stuffed in a trash can, was found in a home not far from where Newsome’s was found. Police and prosecutors allege both victims were raped before being killed. Yes, both. Three men and a woman have been charged with the crimes in a 46-count grand jury indictment handed down in Knoxville on January 31.
Surf over and read the entire article. It's an eye opener - if you happen to depend on the lame-stream media for your news. We don't, and this is why.

Where was sharpton and jackson during all this?

Can it be assumed that its ok for 1's to rape and murder 2's? But if you make a joke about 1's you are then subject to the pretend rev's wrath?

In 1998, two separate murders occurred in which the national mainstream news media covered as an international cause celebre. Coverage by the New York Times was relentless, even more than a year after the crimes and the swift arrests of the murderers.

I am referring to the tragic cases of James BYRD, Jr. in Jasper, Texas and Matthew SHEPARD in Laramie, Wyoming. BYRD was black while SHEPARD was gay.

But for the Internet, the national media ignored two of the most horrific, hate-filled atrocities in the annals of crime--the Knoxville Horror (victims Christopher NEWSOM and his date, Channon CHRISTIAN) and "the Wichita Massacre" by Reginald and Jonathan CARR.

In both cases, the blood-thirsty abductions, robberies, torture, repeated sexual assaults and hate-driven, execution-style murders would bring tears to the eyes of veteran homicide detectives,

Unlike the Byrd and Shepard homicides, there was NO news coverage outside the respective states of Tennessee and Kansas.

GOOGLE for graphic and horrific details.

Insidious media bias and their damned obsession with "political correctness" are destroying America.

Where is mary Mitchells apology?? Oh yeah she is too busy with the Imus remarks to talk about how she should shut her nappy head mouth and say sorry. The only reason that racist picked up that Duke story is because its white vs. Black. This woman will make a white turn racist after reading her crap for years you will hate as much as she does. Oh yeah Imus is a shock jock not a real news commentater, so who cares what he says its opinion that is covered under freedom of speech.

Imus gets shitcanned for making a joke and using a poor choice of words. There was no malice in his words.

Yet this black woman can make these false allegations, which she has a history of doing, and completely ruin the lives of these three white boys, and she skates.

No prosecution for her.

Anyone else see this double standard?

The media will NOT under any circumstances bring the attention to these cases that they deserve. The case of Newsom and Christian is beyond horrible. All murders are bad, but some stand out for their level of depravity. For the sackless media to point out the race of the offenders would be sacriligious (to them). Imus is an asshole, and what he said was not funny nor acceptable, and he should be disciplined. But for Christ sake, every time I turn on my computer someone else is jumping on his back. Give him his hit, and move on. Where is all of this indignation for all of these crimes, whether black on white, white on black or white on white or black on black. How often do we have to rinse blood off of sidewalks before someone says something. Bill Cosby spoke up a few years ago and they wanted to take away his membership in the African American community. The media crucified Al Campanis and Jimmy the Greek for offering an (admittedly stupid) opinion, and we never saw them again. Why won't they turn the same glaring light on a case like Newsome and Christian. It should not be a race issue, it is a doing what's right issue. It's fucking sickening.

UPDATE: New suspect, new charges in Knoxville double murder

By: Katie Allison Granju, Producer
Date created: 2/1/2007 11:55:39 AM
Last updated: 2/2/2007 8:48:26 AM



Four of the suspects in the deaths of Channon Christian and Chris Newsom are now facing state charges.Advertisement



Knox County District Attorney General Randy Nichols released the 46-count indictment late Thursday.

"We're about to embark on our best efforts to see that this case moves to trial on the first day that it is set," Nichols said. "We will be prepared, and we anticipate putting our best foot forward and seeking conviction on every count levied in this indictment."

Last month, police say Christian and Newsom were carjacked, kidnapped and murdered.

Newsom's shot and burned body was found near railroad tracks off Cherry Street.

Days later, Christian's body was found inside a Chipman Street house.

The three male suspects -- Lemaricus Davidson, Letalvis Cobbins, George Thomas -- are facing 46 counts each in the indictment.

They are:

- 16 counts of felony murder, which carries possible penalties of death, life without parole or life with parole.

- 2 counts of premeditated murder, which carries possible penalties of death, life without parole or life with parole.

- 2 counts of aggravated robbery, a Class A felony carrying a possible penalty of 15 to 60 years.

- 4 counts of aggravated kidnapping, a Class A felony carrying a possible penalty of 15 to 60 years.

- 20 counts aggravated rape of Christian and Newsom, a Class A felony carrying a possible penalty of 15 to 60 years.

- 2 counts theft.

Hey guys we covered that angle on 12 MAR 07 under the title of Media Bias

MEDIA BIAS
Christopher Newsome's body was found wrapped in a blanket, shot three times and burnt along a set of railroad tracks. Channon Christian's body was found in the home of two of the offenders dumped inside of a garbage can. Both victims had been raped, mutilated and murdered. This is a heinous crime against a young white couple perpetrated by a group of black males. Does the race of either victims or offenders matter? It shouldn't but apparently when a group of white lacrosse players are accused (hoax)by a black women of rape it touches off a media frenzy that lasted months. However, this heinous crime is only covered by the local Knoxville, TN press and not the national media. You have to ask yourself why.

Anyone who actually works the inner city ghetto can plainly see that for the most part, the residents living there are animals. The crimes against the couple from Nashville were committed by animals of the lowest order.
Quit making excuese for these animals! They act less than human, so by all rights-they are less than human. Some of you posted saying to fear the ghetto?
Fuck that! Don't fear the animal. Hunt it and kill it. You young gel wearing coppers of today wouldn't make a pimple on an Old School copper's ass. Look at the CPD back in the 70's-80's...that was policing at it's finest. The animals that tortured, raped and killed these two people in Nashville would have been "policed" correctly. Do yourselves a favor younger generation coppers: Talk to an old 70's vet before he retires. Every district has at least one. Don't talk to no whiteshirt. He forgot how to be a police officer long ago. Old School is not CAPS, but it does work. Learn how to make the animal fear you. Then....take back your City!

If you care that much, try helping a young officer and provide guidance. Easy to attack and critize new officers. Quit complaining and share that valuable experience with young officers. Instead of attacking them. In the 1970's, veteran offiers trained young officers. Today they are ignored. Quit beefing and either help or quit.

From what I see, the lack of leadership by the older 20 something veterans is hurting the future of today's CPD. Instead of the hands off approach to training, how about really guiding them before you leave for your retirement? Not possible? Why not?
Young man, the problem with you people is you think you know everything. I've got 24 years on and still learn something new every pay period. Take it from me, the Dept wants you to be less like us, because back then, we were a dangerous liability. I could tell you stories, but you have made your decision to shut me out long ago.

I work Mids in 005. I think the old school coppers in 005 are on Days in our district. Pullman has alot of old coppers and detectives walking around looking for Geritol. It's time they give us younger officers a shot at their position. Hit the road already! I agree, the dinosaurs need to leave now. We younger officers have more education and far more skills at handling jobs. I am glad 005 Mids is primarily made up of young pos. We know how to do the job and don't take shit from nobody out there. Old School is not a factor in our line of work.

Sorry, but I have to agree with the younger generation...You old aged coppers need to head to pasture. Seriously just quit already. Thanks.
