Two Women Share Grief over Greenwood Slaying

Christine Clarridge, Seattle Times, March 4, 2014

The two Seattle women are heartbroken: one because her husband of more than 20 years has been slain; the other because her son is accused of the murder.

On the same day David L. Peterson’s suspected killer–a 17-year-old Ballard High School student–was ordered held in detention for investigation of homicide, the most important women in their lives were expressing compassion and sorrow for each other’s family.

“I feel heartbroken for his family,” said Kimberly Dawn Pettigrew Peterson. “I’ve known now for a week and now his mother and his family is just finding out about this. I’m sure they are heartbroken themselves.”


David Peterson

Pettigrew Peterson, the widow of David Peterson, 54, said that as a mother and a person of faith she has forgiven her husband’s killer and feels nothing but grief for his family.

The teen’s mother, Yvette Watkins, acknowledged she knows little about the allegations, but said her son had been a good and respectful student from a two-parent household who had been taught the difference between right and wrong.

She said he had taken a turn for the worst over the couple of months, but she had not seen this coming. Contrary to media reports, she said he was not homeless.


Her son, a decorated member of the Ballard High football team, is accused of shooting Peterson in the chest while stealing his cellphone during a Feb. 23 confrontation on a Greenwood street. He was arrested Saturday at Seattle-Tacoma International Airport as he was about to board a flight for Atlanta, Seattle police say in an affidavit of probable cause that outlines the case against the suspected shooter.

Byron White

The suspect, Byron White.

The boy told police after his arrest that he did the shooting, according to the affidavit.


Under state law 17-year-old suspects facing serious, violent offenses can be charged automatically in adult court.


According to the affidavit, Peterson had gone for a routine walk on Feb. 23, a Sunday evening,

When Peterson was near the intersection of North 85th Street and First Avenue Northwest around 8:30 p.m., police say the 17-year-old tried to rob him of his cellphone. Peterson refused to give up the phone and called 911 as the teen walked away, the document says.

When the teen heard Peterson calling, he allegedly returned and shot Peterson in the chest once, then took the phone, according to the affidavit.

Peterson was dead on the ground, and several witnesses identified the teen as the killer.


Seattle Public Schools spokeswoman Teresa Whipple confirmed the teen suspect was enrolled at Ballard High. She said counselors have been made available for students who wish to discuss the shooting or the arrest.

The teen played on the school’s varsity football team, listed as a 6-foot-2, 190-pound linebacker and tight end. He was an All-KingCo Conference linebacker as a senior.

At his memorial service last weekend, Peterson, a former soldier, was remembered as a man of faith; someone with strong opinions, but who delivered them kindly, according to the officiating minister Dale Amundson.

    Here we go again with Amy Biehl Syndrome.

    Instead of mourning her husband this white woman is “heartbroken” over the thug family of the Trayvon wannabe who made her into a widow.

    • D.B. Cooper

      Let her stew in it for the next several years of being unmarried. I hear it’s difficult for women her age to find a decent man. Hopefully, once she thinks it over, the grief might turn into boiling rage.

    • OhWow

      This is why white men need to forcefully keep white women away from these savages. They are like those women who fall for the abusive ex-con boyfriend. White women always assume the best intent and are WAY too forgiving and naive. They’d trust a black guy with dreadlocks, a hoodie, and a ski mask at 3 AM on Malcom X Blvd. and offer him a ride home.

      Our women are clueless. If black women have anything going for them, at least they are loyal to their race even when their men fail time after time. They would never trust a white guy and they’re very suspicious. White women think they look cool and “tolerant” with black guys and think they are Angelina saving the black race.

    • 1stworlder

      maybe she had him highly insured. Yea baby you should make more black friends.

    • Erasmus

      Stupid woman. What she should want is to smear the Obama-look-alike’s carcass all over the pavement.

    • CaptainCroMag

      I sometimes think that persons like this woman don’t really understand what it even means to grant forgiveness to another. It means that you absolve that person of blame for wrongdoing. Maybe she thinks it means something else. I find it hard to imagine that this woman actually forgives her husband’s murderer. But then again, maybe she really is that pathetic.

    • Svigor

      I think one thing to consider is that the vile national media revels in this sort of thing (as they do all vileness); if she’d done the right thing and said “damn you to hell for killing my husband, a far better man than you, or any of the males in your miserable troop for that matter” or the like, it never would’ve seen print.

  • ncpride

    I’d bet a weeks pay the killer’s family has no such sentiment toward you, White woman. Where’s the rage here? This useless thug took her husband’s life over a cell phone and this is her reaction? Outrageous.

    • Garrett Brown

      Well, it is Seattle after all. You know, the place with a UFO on top of a tower? Lol.

    • Luca

      Not only will the perp’s family not have any remorse, but they are likely to come out with some kind of statement like: “Well, if he would of just give up the stupid little phone, none of this would have happened and my son would not be facing time in prison”.

      • bilderbuster

        Yes, or something like “Stupid cracker done started snitchin’ on da sail foam”.

      • BillMillerTime

        “A robbery gone bad,” as the media like to put it.

    • baldowl

      Something I’ve begun to practice in my own life is recognizing my enemies when I encounter them. Are you committed to the destruction of me, my family, and all people who look like me? You are my enemy. Enemy.

      It’s made no obvious alterations to my day to day manner, but it’s helped me to not be so angry at EVERYONE.

      This woman would be served well by being able to recognize her enemies, but she’d rather commiserate with them instead. We whites will die for our kindness and forgiveness. Our greatest virtues, mostly unshared by other races, will be our downfall.

    • Anon

      Of course, she doesn’t mention that her religion is satanic liberalism….a merciless, unholy cult that demands one sacrifice their children, spouses and parents to the object of their adoration….black people.
      Christianity, on the other hand, if you actually read the Bible, demands that its adherents exterminate evil people….with serious consequences for those who disobey.
      Whites, as a whole, are experiencing those consequences.
      This is VERY important, especially for people of faith. Is your spouse a Christian, or a satanic liberal. Those who fail to figure this out risk ending up like Zimmerman (whose wife stabbed him in the back because he dared kill a holy object of worship in her religion). This is no joke. These people are the descendants of Bhaal worshippers….who took their children and burned them to death for that sick faith.

      • Just an info note. Most would not categorize me as Christian. However, I see words like “God” and “Satan” in a secular sense, and seeing it that way works very very well for me. On a deeper level, I think secularist versus non-secularist interpretations of these words don’t exist. Religionists and secularists are just involved in deep confusions. Reality is deeper than either of their confusions.

    • Alexandra1973

      I bet the perp’s family is like, “Yeah, he got another whitey!”

      If I were that woman I’d be demanding the death penalty. And the privilege to push the button or pull the trigger.

      • blight14

        While this ‘woman of faith’ will most likely insist that little Jamal get probation. She’ll then meet with he and his baby mamma’s on a weekly basis to ‘help them get through this kinda bad event’…….she only hopes Jamal will see fit to meet with her.

        • Alexandra1973

          I’m a woman of faith myself and I believe Romans 13:4– For
          he is the minister of God to thee for good. But if thou do that which
          is evil, be afraid; for he beareth not the sword in vain: for he is the
          minister of God, a revenger to execute wrath upon him that doeth evil.

          The apostle Paul also said that if he should do something worthy of death, he’d take the punishment.

    • A christian forgives, and leaves punishment to God.

  • Zaporizhian Sich

    Light will escape from a black hole before I would forgive someone who killed a family member. This woman is in shock, and grief, she is not in her right mind to “forgive” the thing who tore her life apart. The soulless thug would if he attacked my family meet the Grim Reaper at my hands.

    • Dalliance

      Liberals hold onto their liberal bona fides more tightly than they do family members. That’s the essence of it and the essence of ideology.

    • Erasmus

      Very well said.

  • sbuffalonative

    More Trayvon-style thug photos. They seem to be how blacks like to present themselves to the world.

    And blacks wonder why people see them as a stereotype. Go figure.

    • Irishgirl

      I wonder if he stole the phone just so he could take that picture.

  • So CAL Snowman

    “Yvette Watkins, acknowledged she knows little about the allegations, but said her son had been a good and respectful student from a TWO-PARENT household who had been taught the difference between right and wrong.”

    Yet lefties and neo-cons insist that it is the single parent family structure with absentee fathers that is to blame for so much of the “youth” violence in this country. Of course we know better, genetics are destiny.

  • bubo

    Who bought him the plane tickets? Cross country flights aren’t cheap. Look into the local “social justice” pastors and community organizers to find out who was trying to help this thug abscond.

    I don’t put much stock in the widows words. White people are expected to say such things when the media puts a microphone in front of them.

    • It’s about time that white people stop saying what’s expected and scream a big loud “F U to the entire black race.” It’s what I would do.

    • r j p

      Where did this good yoof get the gun?

  • [Guest]

    Like most savages in the news over the last few years, Byron White seems to be a fine, upstanding young man. Most of us will never receive as much public praise in our lifetimes as this savage has received in this one article alone.

    >>>…as a mother and a person of faith she has forgiven her husband’s killer….

    The only faith I know of that tells someone to “forgive” a murderer (or, more accurately, pretend to forgive him) is modern-day American mush-headed liberalism.

    • The impression I get from reading the opinions of the guilt ridden progressive apologists, enablers, freedom campaigners etc Is that Blacks ought to be given one ‘let off’ murder credit each, you know because of historical injustices (that the same former crowd taught them in the first place, as their history was only oral before we came along).
      Only on the condition that they show they’re really, really sincerely sorry and they cross their heart promise that that won’t snuff out any more White lives.

      • [Guest]

        Some of them are evidently willing not only to see their fellow white people destroyed but to sacrifice their own neighbors, friends, families, and even themselves. Somehow the notion has taken hold that racial suicide is a good thing. As I see it, “progressives” are perverse in the extreme.

    • 1stworlder

      People forget that Jesus was known for flipping tables and whipping people.

      • Brian

        Yes, and even though he told the thief beside him he’d go to paradise, the thief still had to pay for his crime by expiring on the cross.

          Not only that, but he admitted that he deserved the punishment.

    “Her son, a decorated member of the Ballard High football team . . . ”

    “The teen played on the school’s varsity football team, listed as a 6-foot-2, 190-pound linebacker and tight end. He was an All-KingCo Conference linebacker as a senior.”

    Why is any of this information relevant? What could it possibly add to the narrative other than to garner sympathy from sports worshiping White fools? So we should feel sorry for the killer because he was a gifted football athlete? I’ve noticed this trend in every single story where the black teen killer was a high school athlete. As if we are losing such a valued member of society when a black teen high school athlete unleashes his inner OJ.

    • sbuffalonative

      This information is relevant because it’s part of ‘the narrative’.

      It’s all about ‘the narrative’.

      We had the Duke Lacrosse ‘narrative’, the Jena Six ‘narrative’, the Trayvon Martin ‘narrative’.

      Facts don’t matter. What matters is ‘the narrative’.

    • bubo

      Just think, if that white man hadn’t hesitated in giving up his phone this young teen phenom would be enrolling at a college somewhere on a football scholarship where he could rape white females and rob white college students.

      This white man “took one for the team.”

      • sbuffalonative

        Another black man lost to the white man’s ‘prison industrial complex’.

        • Sick of it

          He’ll be out in 3-5 sure enough.

          • He’s a minor. We can’t even guarantee he’ll do hard time or that this horrible crime will be on his record after his release.

    • [Guest]

      Yes, and since when are football players “decorated”? I have never before heard that term applied to anyone but war heroes.

      Evidently Byron White is the modern-day equivalent of Audie Murphy or Alvin C. York.

      • r j p

        He be an honors student too.
        Now read The Bonfire of the Vanities.
        This has been going on for years.

        • [Guest]

          I once read a news item, perhaps one linked on AmRen, in which it was noted that a savage young black had recently taken a part-time job. I thought that was a nice addition to the usual list of accomplishments—gifted athlete, honors student, and aspiring rapper—for which young black rapists and murderers are known.

          I have The Bonfire of the Vanities, by the way, but have yet to read it.

          • r j p

            I am Charlotte Simmons is another good read.

          • [Guest]

            I’ll keep that title in mind as well. Thank you.

    • Puggg

      I think it’s just the media’s ploy to throw cold water over what should be righteous anger on the part of white man. “Hey white man don’t get mad at him and don’t get mad at blacks, because he was good at football.”

      • bilderbuster

        And he now has to give up his dream of a college scholarship & going pro after his “confrontation” with Mr. Peterson.

    • Tim_in_Indiana

      To me, that he was a gifted football athlete only makes the crime worse, not better, despite what this MSM piece would have us believe. After all, he had options available to him that a lot of people don’t, including many whites. So how could he possibly be excused for this act of cold-blooded murder? But count on the MSM to imply that this somehow makes him worthwhile.

      • So CAL Snowman

        Interesting take

    • r j p

      She said counselors have been made available for students who wish to discuss the shooting or the arrest.

      Counselors being made available because a ghetto thug got arrested for murder?

      • Max

        The counsel should consist of “Now you see why you should avoid blacks no matter how harmless they may appear”.

  • sbuffalonative

    I hope one of the apes rapes and kills you. It’s what you deserve for betraying your man.

  • OhWow

    This reminds me of when I was on the subway recently and a homeless black guy made his usual announcement: “Attention everybody can I have your attention for one minute? I’m homeless and I have nothing…any donations of any kind will help. Please.”.

    The homeless guy was next to me but I wasn’t even making eye contact with him because he would think I wanted to help if I did. Instead my eyes locked on this attractive blonde woman about my age (mid 20’s) sitting down. She was looking at the homeless black guy and her eyes were welling up with tears. I thought to myself “Holy crap…that easy? That’s how easy it is to get you to cry and feel guilty? How do you even know he’s not scamming us?”. There is not a doubt in my mind she felt extra guilty because he was black. Before he could even finish his begging, she reached in her $500 Gucci purse and pulled out an unopened box of chocolates and gave him $20. I was enraged. Would she really do that for a homeless guy if he was white? I honestly don’t think so.

    This is just another example of how easily white women are fooled. They don’t have that red flag sensor that we as men seem to have. We can see other men’s intentions. The second you warn a white woman about black guys they look at you and roll their eyes or get angry and call you a “racist”. This is where the daddy issues come out. They hookup with a black guy just because it’s taboo and white guys hate it. Our women have zero loyalty anymore. They can learn from black women in this regard.

    • Just watch five minutes of prime time network television.

      Very few white women with whom I am acquainted are that stupid. Homeless guy’s act wouldn’t fly around here.

      Its everywhere.


    • Ohwow, there are some good white women out there who are disgusted with WN men because of the generalization that all white women are disloyal. I’ll add that I would have said to the white woman, “You know he’s a con artist, don’t you? If you give him money, it’ll go to whores and drugs.”

      Wonder why a rich woman is riding the subway ? Perhaps she is enjoying the diversity, and she will apologize as she is getting raped and murdered some night in a multicultural neighborhood.

  • Truthseeker

    White people: wake up. You think forgiving non-white thugs is going to lead to “healing” or “reconciliation” or some such thing. You’re wrong. A moral compass is required on the part of the perpetrator for any such thing to happen. Forgiving people like this will not lead anyone to better their behavior, it will encourage them to do even more bad things.

    They do not care about us. They’d kill us and take everything we owned if they thought they could get away with it, and if you don’t believe me, look at Haiti, or formerly white-run areas of Africa. They’ve been programmed to hate us and resent us, and when you forgive, all they see is weakness. We whites instinctively try to get along with others, but they don’t. If the person on the other side has no interest in peaceful coexistence, forgiveness is nothing but surrender.

    See to it that this punk gets locked up, and make no apologies for it. He doesn’t need forgiveness, he needs punishment.

    Well if anything is as American as apple pie these days it’s mr Petersons story. Serve in the military, be a good neutered White male citizen and be murdered by diversity over a cell phone. Then while your wife claims to be Christian, the truth is diversity is her idol far before Christ. So she has little time to mourn for you sense one of her idols was the murderer. So neither wife nor country thought much of mr Peterson. If he had shot the vibrancy in self defense we know both would have abandoned him. God bless the USA.

  • shmo123

    It sounds suspect that a woman would forgive the thug who took her husband’s life after only seven days. That’s barely time to grieve. She must be in shock or something–or heavily drugged.

      or she paid the thug to knock him off or just didn’t love him very much.

    • Frank_DeScushin

      It’s Reginald Denny Syndrome. White women are far more prone to it than white men. The widow likely sympathizes with the attacker’s mother because, as the widow has been led to believe, widespread white racism oppressed the poor child and drive him to murder.

One woman is grieving (I hope) and the other is looking for sympathy (and probably donations).

      The race traitors have poisoned the white biological stock by importing masses of racially inferior people. They use propaganda about love and peace to pacify their sheep as they prepare them for their final destruction. The traitors do this by taking advantage of greater white individualism and sense of altruism, the Achilles’ heel of the white race. Alas, the white race has been tricked by the men who were entrusted with our national destinies. A race that has given so much to the world must be transformed into a herd of geldings and marched to their deaths, only to be replaced by a docile 3rd world proletariat. This is treason of the highest order and those responsible must pay the ultimate penalty for their crimes against humanity.

      • Dalliance

        If anything is turning me into a racist it’s the obvious racism that is being perpetrated against whites. I sometimes feel that the other races are a million miles ahead of us in the racism (if not race realism) department. They fight. We dream. It’s like bringing a pillow to a knife fight. (“Oh, let me give of my flesh and of my substance, O Lord, to the betterment of these others, that they may become like us in our disappearance. Amen.”) Whites shouldn’t have to be anybody’s canvas.

    I get so incredibly sick of these stories where a victim of a horrible crime or their family takes the “we forgive…” tract. God forgives (or not)…this monster deserves nothing but to be slowly totally and painfully destroyed.

    • Sick of it

      God would more than likely see to his torture for all eternity. Humans make up some sort of sob story to excuse his evil deed.

    What’s really important here is they can support one another through their grief. If multiculturalism suffered, that would be the real tragedy.

      Nice reference. I’m not sure that everyone knows that quote, spoken by CSA George Casey after the Ft. Hood massacre: “…it would be an even greater tragedy if diversity suffered.”

      I for one don’t want diversity to suffer. I think it (and we) have suffered enough. I’d like it to die a quick and painless death.

      • Zaporizhian Sich

        Nay, I want “die-versity” and it’s architects to die a violent, horrible death at the hands of the whites it victimized.

    “The teen’s mother, Yvette Watkins, acknowledged she knows little about the allegations, but said her son had been a good and respectful student from a two-parent household who had been taught the difference between right and wrong.”

    If someone in my family committed robbery and/or murder, we would not describe him as “good and respectful”.

    • Geo1metric

      I find it curious that she would speak of “the two-parent household..”.

      Sounds to me like she has been coached about what to say.

        • HamletsGhost

          If this was a two-parent household, why is there no mention of the father and a quote from him? The fact that liberals are always trying to dispel “stereotypes” about blacks indicates there is no father in the picture. If he existed, they would have quoted from him.

      I too don’t think that God intends for us to deny our human instincts. He gave us those powers, right? We are to use them.

      The Bible says “an eye for an eye, a tooth for a tooth.”

  • Reverend Bacon

    It’s hard to have hope for this country when people like this woman have so much guilt that they continue their denial even after a tragedy like this. And when the shameful press refers to the murderer of a war veteran as a “decorated” member of a football team. Was he trying to push the comparison, which was already offensive enough? I mean to even begin to humanize the thug and its mother is shameful. Forcing terms like “decorated” onto this waste of protoplasm is unforgivable.

    In “Bonfire of the Vanities,” a thug named Henry Lamb gets his comeuppance early in the book at the hands of a white couple driving a Mercedes. The cynical press spins his death as that of an “honor student.” This greater spin by an even more cynical press simply shows how prescient Wolfe was, and how much he underestimated the ways the forces of evil would transmogrify this once-great country.

    • r j p

      The book is great, the movie horrible.

      • Reverend Bacon

        Yes, in a twist of irony that had to make Wolfe just do a face-palm, the movie emasculated the book by turning it into a sort of farce. They did it to please the cynical press.

        • HamletsGhost

          That movie ends with a stern and paternal Morgan Freeman reading the riot act to a crowded of cowed, shameful mostly white courtroom audience.
          Even though the movie started with a black thug like in the book, the ending was twisted into a lecture from a modern-day black Moses chastising the white Israelites.

  • A lot of pictures of the murder suspect can be found at that link.

    • I don’t like the way you deleted my post about Lemaricus Davidson. Please don’t do that again.

      I said “please”.

  • Sick of it

    This is why we need to be in charge again. Even a cursory study of matriarchal societies shows just how degenerate they inevitably become.

    • Sigh. I think you may be right. Both Ann Coulter and Elizabeth Wright made comments supporting your statement. Coulter said something like, giving women the vote was a big step toward socialism. Wright said something like, if women were in charge of building our abode, we would still be living in grass huts.
      I say sigh, because I have some liberalism at heart. Maybe what we should do is take away some of the power and rights that we have given women, yet give them some rights and power and protection which they should genuinely have for a less helpless dominated life. But both women and men have rights as well as real obligations. Reality is too rough to allow otherwise.

      • Steven Bannister

        It was Camile Paglia who said “If civilization had been left in female hands we would still be living in grass huts.” And I agree with her.

        Women are followers by nature. If the society is conservative, they will dress conservative. If the society is decadent, they will dress like sluts. They are looking for men to guide them.

        It’s important to note that we do NOT have a matriarchal society nor are we heading towards one. Power is NOT being shifted toward women (although it may seem like that sometimes) rather it is being shifted away from white men towards non-white men (under the direction of men from yet another tribe who have appropriated our culture. )

        Thus, women are not really in control – they are just being controlled by a different group of men.

      • Young Werther

        Ann Coulter makes money by saying *provocative* things whether they are true or not. The radical leftists of the 60s,70s,80s who overthrew the traditional American Society was primarily a group of groups led by women. The “War on Amerikkk” declared by Weather Underground was drawn up by a woman lawyer, the women of those revolutionary movements in Europe and America made it work. They made bombs, wrote pamplets, created agendas, planned assinations, and carried them out along side the men who welcomed their money and gifts. Consider the White Widow of the radical Islamic group…a tremendous amount of wealth is owned by women…why would an organization of white nationalists, racialists, or any group desire to relegate the intellect and power of the women of its race to an oppositionary force? It is a very stupid form of suicide. I am not attempting to change *your* mind…simply stating a truth. If a woman is denied her rightful place in her own race, she will work against it. I am only speaking of modern times,History is full of examples. The White Awareness Movement is not a little boy’s club.

      She’s not a fool. She’s status-jockeying when it costs her nothing. Her sin is being devoid of character, not wit.

    I used to oppose abortion, but when it comes to blacks, because of their widespread criminality and anti-social behavior, I cannot categorically condemn their having an abortion.

    One of the main arguments used by opponents of abortion is to tell people that through abortion we might be killing the next Beethoven or Henry Ford. But, when I hear how many millions of black babies have been aborted, perhaps I should be grateful. Because of abortion heaven only knows how many Abu Jamals, Trayvon Martins, Byron Whites or Mona Nelsons the world has been saved from. Without abortion our country’s, (and the world’s), black problem would be worse.

  • Roninf9

    I agree. Our criminal justice system was designed for civilized men. To protect society other steps must be taken to deal with the uncivilized. If immediate death is not warranted these cretins should be stripped of their citizenship and deported back to the lawless jungle where they belong.

  • Roninf9

    ‘as a person of faith she has forgiven her husband’s killer’

    I never understood this. How does faith in God automatically mean forgiveness? I assume this person has read the Bible. Did not God utterly destroy Sodom and Gomorrah for their sins. He killed Lot’s wife just for looking back. Did not God kill millions for the wickedness, including women and children, in the Great Flood? The Bible is chock full of passages relating to the curses, destruction, and condemnation God brings down upon sinners. God is not a very forgiving sort so why does faith in Him mean we have to be?

    • Sick of it

      Here’s one of the secrets of our faith – You can forgive a man while also accepting his just punishment for his crimes (consider the thief on the cross). Trying to get an unrepentant murderer off the hook for his terrible crime is essentially a sin (consider the release of Barabbas). Sharing the Gospel with him is what a good Christian does. “Be ye wise as serpents” does not mean that we should act like morons and intentionally empower the scum of the earth, but rather that we should consider the consequences of our actions.

      • It isn’t up to me to “forgive”. While I was locked up, my “best friend” – a crooked cop – stole from me. You can’t forgive him for that. He also raped children. I can’t forgive him for that.

        Only the victims can forgive.

        • Sick of it

          Raping children is pretty terrible (and the eternal penalty just as terrible). I do admit to having a friend who stole from me though and I forgave him a long time ago.

          • If Robert Christopher Rowe paid me and said he was sorry, I’d write a nice letter to to parole board. He’d be out.

  • Shawn_thefemale

    I’m just curious what the media/public response would be if just for once, the white widow or loved one of a victim of black on white crime would be shown at the HONEST true moment of grief, (not the edited version) screaming at the top of their lungs, “When is someone going to DO something about all these ******* killing? My God, we give them everything, and all they do is kill!!

  • PvtCharlieSlate

    Mrs Peterson can forgive or not as it suits her. However, the crime was not committed only against her husband but also against civil society and society (the state) has the obligation to serve justice and inflict punishment.
    In this case there is no doubt of the guilt and no mediating circumstances, therefore: put him in jail, clean him off, clean him out, harvest him for transplant parts, incinerate the remainder.

  • Lygeia

    What the hell is a “decorated member of the football team?

    The MSN is trying to make this murderous thug out to be a decorated war hero.

    The only time you are “decorated” is if you are in the military and you are awarded a medal for combat or bravery.

    • Kit Ingoldby

      True, to be decorated you are either a war veteran or a Christmas tree.

  • LHathaway

    “Peterson had gone for a routine walk on Feb. 23”

    Who goes for a routine walk? Anything to keep the public from feeling too much sympathy for this victim?

  • She forgave him. Why can’t you leave it at that? He does not deserve her forgiveness, but it is her decision. She is a better human being than I am for doing this.

    • She is not a better human being for doing this. She, along with those who defend her, become as a conduit for the voice of Satan. As I would also become if I didn’t respond to your post.

      • I feel death-penalty-miserable when I am allowed to think about the Knoxville Horror. I am not religious, but I asked God to help me last night. I want Channon Christian and Christopher Newsome safe and alive and here as our friends.

        I’m not Christian, Muslim, Jewish or Anything Else, but I begged Him, and everyone knows what that means.

    • Young Werther

      She is a better human being? WTF standards are those?

      • Svigor

        May God protect me from the fate of not just being killed by some worthless animal, but having my memory thrown into the gutter by a feckless widow devoid of character. May God protect us all, no decent man deserves that.

        If the animal had only killed her instead, this story would have a happy ending…

    • Svigor

      What makes her such a good human being? “Forgiving” a negro for something it did to someone else? She just threw her husband’s memory into the toilet, nothing admirable about that.

      • Young Werther

        Got your post, odd it was deleted…wonder why?

  • I have heard tell that God forgives, sometimes.

  • If those animals had eventually quit hurting that young couple in Knoxville, allowed them to put their clothes back on, and allowed them to leave that haunted house on Chipman Street in Knoxville, then Channon and Christopher would be allowed to decide when or if to forgive their attackers.

    They don’t get to do that, because they’ve both been dead seven years.

    I feel hurt over their miserable deaths in a place I will never be able to reach. It makes me want to kill blacks all day and all night. What was Mr. Christopher thinking when they marched him out, barefoot, with his hands tied and a dirty sock stuffed in his mouth? When they took turns raping Miss Christian, what else was she crying while she begged them to stop?

    I won’t forgive, and I won’t forget. Lemaricus Davidson taught us a lesson we were all supposed to learn: he wanted to psychologically wound every white person in the nation. He did.

    At the risk of sounding like a cross between Mr. Spartacus and Dr. Strangelove, my answer is:

    “Whatever happens, we have got, the atom bomb, and they do not.”

  • Exactly! The rape, torture and murder of Channon Christian and Christopher Newsome hurts me in a place I will never be able to reach. The moderator deleted my last post about this, but I have nightmares about those poor kids. There’s no way for me to help them, and that only makes it worse. What Lemaricus Davidson, Letalvis Cobbins and George Roberts intentionally did was psychologically wound white survivors, just for being whites. They made “an example” out of a nice-looking white couple. I was already PTSD, but what I read about the Knoxville Horror broke my heart all over again.

    I am also terribly angry about it, and I’m not letting this one drop. Forgiveness is only for the victims to decide. If some moderator doesn’t like that, it’s quite OK.

    • Zaporizhian Sich

      I seethe with violent rage every time I think about that too, let alone hear about it. That atrocity just leads to me thinking about what I would do to all five of them if I got the chance. Let’s just say, I would gladly BE the executioner.

      • If I didn’t have a wife and a daughter, I’d wish I could take their place. I turn 48 in a few weeks. That leaves me with another 30 years. Poor Channon was hurt for at most three days. I’d trade places with her, so long as I didn’t have to think about it anymore.

        They could have had a nice life together, and I already know where I’m going. The first one who wanted a blow-job would learn something quite interesting. .

        That crime hurts me, and I had hideous nightmares even before 1997. I do woodworking when I feel unsettled or angry. My upper arms and back now ache like the end of the world. I’ve been doing a lot of heavy work over the last year, and my mother noticed it right away when she hugged me last November. I have long hair now, but that’s cover for my forehead. When Sayaka finally cuts it for me, I will use the hair making fishing lures.

        I am not religious. My mother is a failed Methodist and my ex-father a failed Catholic. I have been terribly wronged. Perhaps my wrath when provoked was excessive. That said, I would never have gloried in the gratuitous harm to my chosen enemies that they caused Miss Christian or Mr. Christopher, chosen only because they were white, happy and in love.

  • Zaporizhian Sich

    As I have said, I would never forgive such a crime, never forget such a crime, and I would have no problem taken them to the grave even if that resulted in me going to mine too. Blacks are too stupid to realized the vengefulness that is going to kill them.
