Drew Pooters: Christopher Newsom murder case

I HAVE BEEN READING about the update charges of a Grand Jury in the Channon Christian/Christopher Newsom murder case (a 2007 horror if there ever was one in TN) and I was struck by the defense’s logic (or lack thereof) in asking that the first defendant NOT be given the death penalty (never mind the evidence, right?). Then I looked HIM (the lawyer) up and you couldn’t get more left wing if you went to KFC and ordered some.

So, let me get this straight – it’s legally moral to kill the unborn, who DO feel pain and who DO have brain activity and reactions past a certain stage of development, who have committed no crime other than being conceived, while it is IMMORAL to execute the five people who raped, sodomized, tortured, burned and shot these two kids? The additional logic that this is not a “hate crime” is crap – all murder is done by hate. But to justify it’s continued existence of a rewarded lifestyle (TV, education, food, free medical) than those they killed is insane.

Of course, the lack of reporting on this case – and others (what about the Chicago kids who tortured a special needs kid and posted it on YouTube – not a peep) is why the media is not trusted anymore by a majority of people. They may think their ratings are due to viewers who believe their crap, but it’s more like, “okay, you let us know this is going on, but we know it’s the opposite of what you tell us.”

If we are honestly to think that anyone who does NOT commit a crime in America is just as responsible for the heinous crimes of many of those rightly convicted of them in court (society, color, economics, politics all blamed on the innocent in defense of the guilty), then the quote from Oliver Twist seems to fit:

“If the law supposes that,” said Mr. Bumble (who was told he was just as responsible for his wife’s crimes), squeezing his hat emphatically in both hands, “the law is a ass — a idiot. If that’s the eye of the law, the law is a bachelor; and the worst I wish the law is, that his eye may be opened by experience — by experience.”

Perhaps liberals need a bit more personal experience; it seems their eyes never wish to be open.
