In the early morning hours of January 7, 2007, Christopher Newsom and his girlfriend Channon Christian were car-jacked and held captive in a house on Chipman Street in Knoxville, Tennessee. Both were raped, tortured and killed. Newsom’s body was discovered in the vicinity that afternoon burning alongside railroad tracks. Christian’s body was found stuffed in a trashcan inside the house a couple of days later. Five people were arrested in connection with the crime. This week, Glenn Beck covered their story to highlight the reality that evil does exist. You can go to this link to watch a video of Mr. Beck’s interview with both sets of parents regarding the horrific details of the crime. The below video is Channon’s dad, he is imploring all parents to give your kids a fighting chance by teaching them to defend themselves.
The contents of this article are the main reason I started this blog. We must teach ourselves and teach our children to be good citizens and to be the sheepdogs of society. As Mr. Christian said in the video, there will never be enough police, enough security guards, etc. to ensure your personal safety throughout the day. You must take this responsibility and own it. If you have not started yet, today is a great day to begin thinking about your family’s security and self-defense plans.
