A few weeks ago, a listener called into the radio show and told Glenn about the horrific details of the horrific murder of a Tennessee couple by five African Americans. Tonight, Glenn welcomed the parents of Channon Christian and Christopher Newsom onto the Glenn Beck Program to tell the stories that their children no longer could.
The caller who told Glenn the story was outraged by Oprah, President Obama, Al Sharpton and others who were so quick to politicize and publicize racial tensions after the death of Trayvon Martin, but have ignored the tragic murders of a young couple in Knoxville, Tennessee. Channon Christian and Christopher Newsom were raped, tortured, and murdered after being kidnapped the evening of January 6, 2007.
Glenn, who was unfamiliar with the story, promised the listener he would look into it. A few days later he dedicated a portion of his show with sharing their tragic case with his audience.
On Tuesday night, he brought the parents on to share the horrific details of the murder and the aftermath that was ignored by the national media, as well as the responsibilities parents have to teach kids how to protect and defend themselves.
