Dear Secretary Clinton:
You’ve gone to great lengths to convince America how much you cared about the outcome of the George Zimmerman trial, but how troubled were you at the murders of Channon Christian and her boyfriend, Christopher Newsom? Where were you on the night of January 7, 2007? Were you tending to such a monumental international crisis that you missed the details of their brutal murders? Surely the fact that four black men were involved in a carjacking and murder of this white couple could not possibly have been lost on you.
Certainly you must have been apprised by Eric Holder’s DOJ that the attackers blindfolded and bound this couple, temporarily held them in a rundown rental house where after Newsome was led away, over the next 24 hours Christian was beaten and repeatedly raped vaginally and anally. The coroner concluded she died of suffocation after she was choked, wrapped in plastic bags and her lifeless body dumped in a trash can.
While Christian was savaged by her attackers, Newsome was likewise sexually assaulted, shot in the back of the head, wrapped in a blanket and set on fire and left beside some railroad tracks. Christian and Newsome weren’t out buying Skittles and tea and suspiciously trolling their neighborhood, they were on a date. Their crime was owning the car these animals needed to commit additional crimes, evil acts that would yield the desperately needed cash to further fund their nefarious, documented career-criminal lifestyles.
Surely these horrific and unconscionable murders caused the same pain and heartache to you, just as it did to this couple’s parents at the senseless and tragic loss of their innocent loved ones. Did you offer the same prayers to these families who lost their children to violence, or did these brutal, heinous acts of torture escape your radar screen?
If these insensible acts of savagery somehow eluded you I’m confident you were keenly aware of the July 12, 2013 death of 46-year-old Pat Mahaney. After being barbarically beaten nearly a year ago, Mahaney died Friday in the University of Cincinnati Medical Center. As you may be aware just like Christian and Newsome, Mahaney had the unmitigated gall of being in the wrong place at the wrong time when six black youths, aged 13 to 14, assaulted Mahaney by administering an unprovoked beating. Why? They told police they did it because they were bored and looking for something to do.
Because you are such a sensitive, caring human being it wouldn’t surprise me one bit that you show up at the funeral next week. If you can’t make it let me know, I will attend in your place as I know you would want to be represented. I’ll be happy to share your heartache with the Mahaney family. They’ll appreciate your sentiments that Mahaney’s should have “no fear for their child walking down a street in the United States of America.” That will surely be comforting to them.
Of course Madame Secretary, you realize by now that my communication is rife with rhetoric. You may have many people fooled with the hyperbole you espouse, but not me. You see, like astute Americans I realize that you are nothing more than a politician, who in the words of Rahm Immanuel never lets a good tragedy go to waste. The simple fact is that you care no more about Channon Christian, Christopher Newsom or Pat Mahaney than you did about Christopher Stevens, Sean Smith, Glen Doherty and Tyrone Woods.
Your greatest concern is neither justice for Trayvon Martin nor the anguish and grief suffered by his parents and family. Your primary objective is to give the appearance that you actually care about something other than your own popularity and electability. Your pathetic, self-serving comments don’t fool anyone with more than one functioning brain cell and half an ounce of common sense. You care about one thing – 2016 – and that’s it.
