Are you ****ing kidding! Because they weren't mutilation in the exact fashion originally reported your going to defend the scumbags that did it?!!!!!

read this account Murder of Channon Christian and Christopher Newsom - Wikipedia, the free encyclopedia is that kind of torture and mutilation not attrocious enough for you?

And if you actually kept reading, or read it all for that matter, you'll find an answer/explanation to your question at the bottom of the article
The answer/explaination was ridiculous. No one expects the press to report on EVERY murder but I sure as hell expect them to report on ones of this heinousness.

Discussing crimes commited by blacks is racist?

Wheres the racism at?

I get it you must be Al Sharpton trying to turn a non-racial situation into a racial situation, I think all those boys do(Sharpton/Jackson) is stir up racial tensions if anything.

That's a very valid point that I have to agree with.

I remember this event happened at or around the same time a woman in West Virginia was raped by three white guys and a girl. Similar incident, but these two had it much worse, and it wasn't reported that much (although in no way am I minimizing the damage that was done to woman in West Virginia, which was horrifying).

However, like it says at the bottom of the article you posted, black on white crime IS reported often. Eve Carson was murdered by a black guy in North Carolina last year and that was reported nationwide. Another white girl in Alabama by the last name of Burke was also raped and murdered by a black guy in Alabama around the same time, and that was reported.

I also want to point out that, after MUCH criticism from the public (I included) towards media companies for not reporting the Newsom and Christian murders, they finally held stories on it after a couple of months.

WOW, I'm up in the Chicago area and this is the first I ever heard of this crime. I agree that if this had been white on black crime, we would have been blitzed for months on the national media.

I don't remember where I heard about it, but it was definitely in more than one source. Maybe I just picked it up on my radar, but I thought it was passed around quite a bit for a few days. The second I opened this link and saw that picture I knew exactly what story they were talking about. Still sends chills up my spine, such a mindless and bizarre attack on two innocent people out for a nice night.

Here's a case of 6 white men being killed by an Asian in Northern Wisconsin. It also got very little coverage by the national media. Talk about bias.

I heard about the TN crime, and I am in MN. Was there evidence that these teens were targeted because they were white? If yes, hate crime, if no, just another run of the mill extremely violent, heinous crime like we have too much of in America.

I saw lots of coverage on this one, but then I live in St Paul, where the convicted murderer is from. Thing is, by the admission of the one surviving white hunter, it was the HUNTERS who surrounded this guy and started the hateful racist rants when they caught this guy trespassing. Had they simply called the Sherrif and reported it, the whole tragedy would've been avoided. Doesn't mean they deserved to be killed by the guy, but this was not a hate crime. (Lesson learned the hard way: don't threaten and call racist names a guy with a gun in his hands.)
