4 Teens Charged in Death of Mableton Man

My Fox Atlanta, July 2, 2013

Cobb County police have arrested four alleged gang members linked to a fatal hit-and-run crash on Mableton Parkway.

The suspects are accused of beating the victim and then forcing him into the path of a car.

The fatal crash happened just after 1 a.m. Sunday, near Factory Shoals Road and Mableton Parkway. Joshua Heath Chellew, 36, of Mableton was struck by a vehicle and later died.

Authorities said Chellew did not know his attackers. A friend of Chellew said that the two had gone to a gas station when several men jumped Chellew.

“They started punching him. They starting beating on him,” said the woman, who asked not to be identified.


The following four suspects are charged with felony murder, aggravated assault and violation of the Georgia Street Gang Act.  {snip}

– Jekari Strozier (19-year-old male from Mableton, Georgia)
– Antonio Pass (18-year-old male from Mableton, Georgia)
– Johnathan Anthony (18-year-old male from the Mableton, Georgia)
– Kemonta Bonds (18-year-old male from Mableton, Georgia)

  • Pushing a man into the path of oncoming traffic reads to me like it could be prosecuted and won as Murder-1. Which means that Messrs. Strozier, Pass, Anthony and Bonds could, as Irate Irishman says, graduate from Bell Curve University with full honors.

    • I suspect the “extreme indifference to human life” special enhancement would apply, and if the victim’s black vehicle passenger was in fact his girlfriend, racial motivation would also apply.

    Seems like the victim’s girl friend was black. Wonder if that was the reason for being targeted?

    • Stentorian_Commentator

      Really? So, once you go black, you never get back alive, I guess.

      • Oom Paul

        That is even more true considering the other story about high HIV infections among blacks.

        Who would want one of those? They’re dangerous when you rattle their cages.

        A woman is accused of running down her boyfriend outside a store she was already banned from before attacking him with a bottle of window cleaner and standing over him with a box cutter.

        New Castle City Police say they responded to the BJ’s on Sunset Boulevard around 2:30 p.m. Monday for the report of a domestic incident between a man and a woman.

        Police say they found Adrienne Dorman, 21, of the 500 block S Dupont Highway standing over her 21-year-old boyfriend with a box cutter in her hand.

        BJ’s staff told officers that Dorman had already been banned form the store because of previous fights with her boyfriend.

        The duo got into a fight in the parking lot this time over a cell phone. Witnesses told police Dorman intentionally struck her boyfriend with her car, sending him airborne. As the man lay on the ground, Dorman allegedly sprayed him in the face with Windex and began to go through his pockets.

        • There’s also the example of Crystal Magnum. After the infamous Duke rape hoax (her second false rape accusation), she went ape on one of her boyfriends, and slashed his car tires, broke out his car windows, and then piled all his clothes in the bathtub of their apartment, doused them with lighter fluid and set them on fire. With her children in the apartment.

          That fellow decided he’d had enough, so fast-forward to another boyfriend, who’d actually been warned by his own sister to stay away from Magnum. She eventually went ape on him, too, except that instead of destroying his property, she stabbed him to death.

          Now she’s up for murder.

          Prior to the Duke rape hoax, she had been convicted of stealing a taxicab and trying to run down a police officer during the ensuing chase.

          I find black women “warthog ugly”, but that’s just my opinion. The fact that lots of them are also moonbat crazy is not an opinion; it’s demonstrated fact.

          • blindsticks

            Will we ever get to read the story and see the movie do you think? Imagine if this had been the other way around and it was a crazy white trying to stitch up the blacks for racial provocation.

    • Spartacus

      IF that is true, then he has no sympathy from me. All race-traitors should die, painfully if possible. Again, IF it’s true. You have a source for that info ?

      • Oom Paul

        Well in the clip, they say he was walking from the Chevron garage with his friend. Then they interview the friend, which it is a black female. I don’t know how good friends they are, but if you’re hanging out with a woman alone in the middle of the night, I can only assume it is a relationship.

        • Spartacus

          “…but if you’re hanging out with a woman alone in the middle of the night, I can only assume it is a relationship.”

          Not necessarily . I always escort other girls home if it’s late from a party or a bar, because that’s the right thing to do. It doesn’t mean I’m in a relationship with them.

          • Oom Paul

            You are right, that is also a possibility.

      • Oom Paul

        …And even if their friendship was purely platonic, I doubt the gangsters saw it that way

        • Heck; they could have been carpooling home from a late shift at work for all we (or the attackers) know.

  • CaptainCroMag

    Why was he hanging around poor ghetto Blacks? I don’t want to say that he brought it on himself, because I don’t know the man’s story. For all we know, he had hit hard times and had to move to a rough (Black) part of town. I know that in my younger days I had to live in the vicinity of Blacks. It was that experience that made me strive to better myself financially so that I could afford to live in an area where Black faces are rare. It’s a shame that he wasn’t able to escape the Black undertow before it took him down.

    • [Guest]

      I don’t know anything about Joshua Heath Chellew except that savages killed him, but I can say that when you’re white and live in a relatively small town that is 46% white and 39% black, it can be difficult to avoid blacks.

  • Thank God they’re all at least 18, so prosecutors can seek the death penalty.

    • Not yet. The article says they’re only charged with felony murder, aka Murder-2.

  • Luca

    This reeks of a Hate Crime. Oops, I forgot blacks are not capable of that.

    Nothing to see here folks, move along. This was just a random, late night, wrong place-wrong time, unprovoked scuffle due to the recent heat wave and lack of summer programs for under served, inner-city youth..

  • Romulus

    Anybody ever hear of a Georgia Christmas tree! An old fashioned way of administering justice. The expression has many iterations. Southern wind chimes! Use your imagination and see what you come up with!

    • The__Bobster

      Is it similar to Mississippi wind chimes?

  • APaige

    “Wrong place at the wrong time” means ‘near blacks, at anytime’

    • dukem1

      You’re reading my mind.

  • Easyrhino1

    As we all are aware, had the races been reversed the media would make this an international event condemning White racism but as it stands it’s just another day at the office.

    • [Guest]

      Yes, and given that the killing took place in Georgia, can you imagine the caterwauling we’d hear about white racism being alive and well in the backward, benighted South.

    • Svigor

      Yeah, I’m trying to imagine a scenario where four white guys beat a black guy in front of his white girlfriend, throw him in front of an oncoming car and kill him, and it doesn’t result in a months-long media feeding frenzy.

      I’m drawing a blank. Four Hasids? Four Arabs?

      • Bon, From the Land of Babble

        Remember when James Byrd was dragged behind a truck by three White men until he was decapitated? I thought we’d NEVER hear the end of it!! It was major, headline news on ALL media outlets for weeks on end — all the way out here in California. The men were convicted, charged with a hate crime and one was executed in 2011.

        Yet these kinds of stories…black on White, no matter HOW brutal are barely a blip in the local news.

        Anyone here ever hear about this story?

        Way back in 1985, a supposed “martial arts expert” named Roland William Steele (black), convinced three elderly White women (in their late 80′s) into believing they had a problem with their car. Three different witnesses recognized Steele, testified seeing him pointing to a tire, even opening the car doors for the women and getting behind the wheel. He drove them to a secluded, wooded area and proceeded to kill all three. The crime was so brutal that it totally boggled my brain.

        The sadistic two-legged black animal literally used these poor old White women as living, human punching bags to test out his karate ‘death’ blows. That’s right. Just imagine in your head what they must have underwent: Frail, helpless old women getting pummeled to death by a vicious black animal just out of the blue. The coroner’s testimony clearly shows how the women died. Together and with no escape, they were killed with blunt force trauma from multiple blows to the body, neck and head. Just imagine if it was your own mother or grandmother. Absolutely, un-friggin’-believable!

        You do remember when the alphabet networks covered this story 24/7 for months on end, right? Imagine the hell if the races were reversed

    This is where I live. fml

    How much you want to bet this won’t be give the “Zimmerman” treatment?

  • sbuffalonative

    Just like the now ubiquitous euphemism ‘youths’, the phrase ‘the wrong place at the wrong time’ seems to be anytime you’re in the presence of blacks.

  • Svigor

    The “ideal” crime resulting in the death of a white person at the hands of blacks involves an elderly (or race-mixing) victim, and multiple blacks aged 18 (or tried as adults) sentenced to long jail terms. Obviously there’s no ideal, but you get what I mean; it’s worse when the white victim is young and there’s only one or two black perps to lock away for life.

  • Puggg

    Word’s getting around out there that one of the TV reporters heard the black attackers yelling “justice for Trayvon” as the pushed Chellew into the street. That definitely proves premeditation if true.

  • Bon, From the Land of Babble

    for some reason they jumped him and started punching and kicking him.

    Oh, Really?

    According to the same media, Trayvon Martin “for no reason” was stalked and then killed by a WHITE hispanic because he was black.

    Anyone think NBC will give this story the same coverage they’re giving the Martin/Zimmerman case? NBC was the network that edited George Zimmerman’s 911 call to make him look like an evil “WHITE” racist. How about Bill O’Reilly and his “fair and balanced and unafraid” network?

    Did someone here say they look like Obama’s sons?

    They are Satan’s sons.

    This story is already down the memory hole and goes to show that NO ONE is looking out for us.

    I can’t say what I’d like to see done to these black, racists thugs. Ditto for the racist, anti-White media.


  • tech

    Another nice looking white man cut down in the prime of his life.

    • blindsticks

      Whenever you see mug shots of these black thugs they show only defiance and hatred and never an ounce of remorse. Scary. But boy, do I now understand what Jim Crow was really about. How about curfews on all male blacks under forty.

      • The one on the lower right doesn’t look defiant. In his case, I’d say “the lights are on, but nobody’s home”. Clearly rocket scientist material.

      • Neuday

        Remorse is based upon conscience or the basic knowledge or right and wrong. A dog can learn right and wrong from a good master, as a dog that has soiled a rug can exhibit remorse. That many young blacks seem incapable of remorse indicates much about what steps must be taken. It cannot be an accident that so many African nations seem better suited to despotism or colonial administration rather than self-rule is also illuminating. Blacks generally seem incapable of self-control or self-government. It is probably best to seal the cities and deploy the National Guard as violence would be deterred and our tax dollars validated, finally.

  • KenelmDigby

    Trayvon, Trayvon, Trayvon, Trayvon. Squawk! Trayvon. Squawk! Trayvon. Squawk! Trayvon.
    That’s the incessant parrot-cry that we hear being screeched by the US media and political class. Non-stop squawking on-the-hour-every-hour until Trayvon’s contrived name and visage are burned into the consciousness of every sentinient being in the USA, oh, no, the power’s that be won’t let you get away from it.
    Now who’s ever heard of Joshua Heath Chellew?

  • John Smith

    Monsters are state raised and state retired. U.S. taxpayers pay the millions and millions it costs and government employees reap the benefit.

  • Davillus Hynzerelli

    Al, Jesse & the self loathin farleft white loons want to know why blacks are profiled?? Hey idiots a large majority of your black brethren are violent criminals. WAKE UP & get a clue.

  • Bud

    How many of these incidents do we have to see before we all realize that we are in a race war, but we are not fighting back. It’s time to start giving as good as we have been receiving. Clearly that was a racially motivated act but will it be treated as a hate crime? I doubt it.

    • MuniMuIa

      I think it might be better said that the blacks are in a race war against the whites.

  • You forgot to mention that the prosecutor fainted in court over her (sensible) revulsion at the ghastly nature of the crime.

  • Guest

    Maybe they just need to be killed the way Zimmerman haters want him killed.
