The judge only read their sentencing. The jury did their job already!

Sadly, in Tennessee the judge is considered the 13th juror. They claim that is why they have to retry these cases. Personally, I think they should get the death penalty. I've followed this case, and what was done to those two kids was just sickening.

I do not believe in the death sentence; just me but justice should be served for those that lives have been taken for no reason.

Ruth while I respect that.. The flaw in it is I refuse to pay for some jerkoff who deserves to die an equally brutal if not worse way than he inflicted on another being to sit in a prison cell and die an old miserabl bastard that he would have done had he never been caught. Nothing was human about what they did to thier vitims so why treat them humanely?

Ruth did they offer any compassion for there victoms? That is what is wrong with our justice system is people like you. It would be different if they were your loved ones. If they need some one to do the deed I will be happy to do it.

the only problem with that, is the way they will be put to death if they get the death sentence is too humane in my opinion. They deserve what they will get in prison.

@Ruth....do you know what happened to them? Do you know the details?? I respect people for not believing in the death penalty, most of the time, but what those 5 people (and I use the term loosely) pretty much took their right to breathe on this earth away. If you haven't read what was done to them, please do.... I don't think anyone can read it or hear about it and walk away without feeling completely soul-sick on what they both had to endure before they mercifully died.....

Laura Rudy I agree, I think he should be let out in Population and the Parent's of these children they killed should be allowed to talk to the inmates in the Prison he is in. Maybe they will be "Under the weather" and wont be able to walk in the courtroom again.Then, Justice might get served. I just signed another petition that wants one of them, cant remember the name, but, wants them to be off Facebook. Are You Kidding Me? He is allowed on a computer after torturing them?

People that have driving offenses dont get to use a computer, are punished alot worse. I can't believe that.

We saw the Christian family at our regular grocery store last week and I was moved to tears. My husband talked to them but I was too upset and thought they could use encouragement instead of my tears... they have already shed so many. The thought of what their children went through haunts my soul and I pray for healing for each of them as they have to go through this 10 years later. God comfort the families and cover them with your Peace. Their babies are with you and are dancing...

yes, but the parents are BETTER then those disgusting foul scum. Yes, I'm sure the parents would like nothing more then to put their heads thru a brick wall, but they would never be able to do to them what they did to their beloved daughter. We can all hope and pray the wrath of God will come down on those foul, disguting demons and SOON!! I never believed in the death penalty but I do NOW. If it was my family member who did those things(which would NEVER happen because my family members...

GOD BLESS THE NEWSOM AND CHRISTIANSON FAMILIES

Sabrina Lynn Womac, everyone involved in this crime should be treated the Exact same way that they treated those White children. they should die the very same way. anyone who thinks different is a Coward of the highest order.

The media will blatenly avoid hate crimes against white people. This is why ghetto trash runs wild in our cities. We must stop this because decent people are being overrun in their own neighborhoods. Please do not comment about "racism" or the like. I'm just saying what most people are afraid to say....THE TRUTH

A young man named Jaime was brutally murdered a couple years ago a block away from me. He was just walking the Hank Aaron trail minding his own business and a group of thugs beat him to death just because he was alone and because he was white, AKA an easy target for cowards. Of course the media never covered it. I learned about him from a makeshift grave marker in the spot he was killed and looked it up. I myself have been victimized more than once in my neighborhood. I asked one officer...

Of course the media never covered it. I learned about him from a makeshift grave marker in the spot he was killed and looked it up. I myself have been victimized more than once in my neighborhood. I asked one officer jokingly "so, what are my chances of this going down as a hate crime?"...he didn't laugh. He angrily responded "NONE, because you're white". Our future is grim if everyone continues turning a blind eye to the truth. Time to put political correctness to bed and get real.

Channon and Chris not only died horribly but apart from their families, and friends at the hands of evil and wicked people who deserve the MAXIMUM PENALTY under the law. These two should and must be honored and remembered for the victims they truly are!

This crime is so horrendous that I can't even read through it again. And last I heard it STILL isn't charged as a hate crime. It is just coincidence that the perps were all black and the victims both white.
