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.

If anything was the definition of a Federal Hate Crime this was it.So they dated a few white girls, big deal! What the hell does that prove? Reverse the color of Channon & Chris and the national media would have scratched their eyes out screaming "hate crime, racism, etc" The only true justice is for them to go thru EVERYTHING they put their victims thru.After that- tall tree/short rope. Pray for their Mom's & Dad's.The fact that they have to endure this a 2nd time...where's the justice in that?

The article I read said that the family doesnt even think it is a hate crime. They were not in my opinion killed based on race. Rather than just an easy target for the criminals to rob and eventually murder. There was never any racial ties made to the crime other than the criminals were black and the victim was white. They have to be able to prove it in court, and how were they going to do that based upon the evidence??

Jacqueline Macdonald http://www2.fbi.gov/ucr/hc2009/offenders.html 18.5% of the arrest were black offenders.. They only make up 12.6% of the population, so your comment is 100% incorrect.

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.

GOD BLESS THE NEWSOM AND CHRISTIANSON FAMILIES

Everybody deserves a chance to come together.Make a change.I have 2 kids and if this ever was to happen to them I would feel the same I guess.I know it makes you feel others pain.When this happened I cried.I thought to myself how can some people have the nerve to choose to take this young couples life.The only thing that comes to mind is jealousy.Or maybe they were not taught morals, values, love compassion for the human race.Together we all can make a difference, even if it can't bring them...

The lost of your children would have to be the hardest of any parent,but for this to happen.My heart goes out to the families of this beautiful young couple.You would never get over the lost of your child.And to give these monster's a second chance of another trial that's some bullshit they didn't get a second chance.And to keep putting the families through this over and over is awful.And you can see the anger on the face and in his eyes of Channon's father b/c I would feel the exact same way.
