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?

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...

The worthless pigs need to be given to the parents and let them do whatever they want to do them! Did they try to give those 2 kids a second chance when they were brutally beating and raping them before cold blooded killing them? They do not deserve bread and water much less a re-trial! Our judicial system really sucks for innocent people and work for the guilty scum suckers!

They need to give them a retrial alright, five minutes alone with Gary Christian for each of them. I believe that would serve the only type of justice that would fit the horrific crime these monsters committed. The judge only presided over the trial, made no decisions on guilt/innocence. They deserve to have the same acts of animalism done to them.

The national mainstream media has a moral obligation to expose to the American people this terrible tragic story of how these 5 evil black savage animals brutally and savagely raped, tortured, sodomized and murdered CHANNON CHRISTIAN & CHRISTOPHER NEWSOM and to stop ignoring this story because these victims were white and these animals that murdered them were black.

The national mainstream media has a moral obligation to expose to the American people this terrible tragic story of how these 5 evil black savage animals brutally and savagely raped, tortured, sodomized and murdered CHANNON CHRISTIAN & CHRISTOPHER NEWSOM and to stop ignoring this story because these victims were white and these animals that murdered them were black. This is by far the most horrible crime story I ever heard of and am personally offended as a white person that this wasn’t treated as a hate crime and newsworthy to the mainstream media. The way our criminal justice system has handled this story has been a disgrace. There’s nothing American about keeping these pieces of filth/human excrement alive. They don't deserve a retrial, they deserve to die and not by lethal injection. They should be electrocuted for hours before enough voltage kills them. I personally would like to see them tortured to death and am only making this suggestion because electrocution is realistically the most serious way they could all be put to death in this country. In the meantime, I hope they’re all brutally and savagely killed and/or raped in prison. They deserve no sympathy, compassion or mercy whatsoever and anybody that feels these animals shouldn’t be put to death doesn’t know in detail what they did to these two beautiful kids. Shame on all the major news networks for ignoring this story & GOD Bless NANCY GRACE for exposing it. More importantly, GOD Bless the CHRISTIAN & NEWSOM families for the courage they've shown in getting justice for CHANNON & CHRIS. These two wonderful beautiful kids deserve it. I think about them every day and may they rest in peace.

I never cared for NG but, got caught up with Caylee but, after the way it turned out I really believe what my husband was saying the whole time.... "Nancy" told way too much info and that tot mom would end up walking... well, need I say more. That still makes my blood rise!!
But, so does this case. I'm not sure how much you know about Channon and Newsome but, they would have been my daughters age and a lot of her friends were friends with them. And, I worked for the Judge for years back in the 90's and knew him all my life. He was a friend of some of my family. I had the utmost respect for him. All he would have had to do was ask for help! :( The whole thing is very sicking! I will give Dr Drew credit...he did tell the story on his show one night but, still didn't get into the case...only the Judge:/
