    I honestly have no idea... there are arguments on the thread that you supplied that it is a racial bias that prevents the media from reporting it - 'black-on-white' or whatever they call it.

    I... invoke my right not to vote... It could really be the above or it could be something else...

    All I know is that here in Sweden they proactively (by they I mean media) exclude any mention of race, ethnic background, or immigrant/non-immigrant background in a criminal case because they want to prevent racist/xenophobic bullshit from happening. On one hand, that is an act of censorship, on the other, it does make sense and I am pretty sure it has prevented some acts of hate and violence. I can also see this backfiring. But, let's remind ourselves why that even is an issue these days - it is BECAUSE of all the racist and xenophobic motherfuckers out there...

    NB, I'm curious; are an American national living Sweden or something? I ask because a Czech Swede on a US-based (& America-centric) forum strikes me as a bit odd

    I'm a Czech national, that spent her late teens all the way to her mid twenties in USA (ATL, GA to be precise) and about half a year ago moved to Sweden. That is why. I also just graduated from Kennesaw State University with BA in International Affairs ;) So, USA, and politics/int'l affairs are 'somewhat' in my blood ... As I said before... I'm a perpetual immigrant - a person from a lot of places.

    Thanks for your interest. :)

    I find it rather interesting that this crime was not reported AT ALL by any newspaper.

    Did I say interesting? I meant not credible.

    Not even the Knoxville New Sentinel has any reports of this in the January 2007 archives.

    Ergo, I am highly dubious that it even happened.

    Does anyone have a credible source about this event?

    WBIR.com | Knoxville, TN | Immunity denied for Christian/Newsom murder suspect

    scroll down for the many archived articles

    Families: time never heals pain of Christian - Newsom murders

    Four suspects are charged in the slayings and face the death penalty: Lemaricus Davidson, Letalvis Cobbins, George Thomas and Vanessa Coleman. All four are still awaiting trial.

    "Every day it's the same battle," said Channon's father, Gary Christian.

    "Sometimes I just don't want to get out of bed. Sometimes you just can't do it," added her mother, Deena Christian.

    The murders of their daughter and her boyfriend were so horrifying they drew international attention.

    yet nothing from the major press in the us

    o are those enough sources for you....?
