"So long as we live, they too shall live and love for they are a part of us as we remember them."- Gates of Prayer
Every year on January 7, Unit 1012 will always remember Channon Christian and Christopher Newsom, a couple from Knoxville, Tennessee who were murdered on January 7, 2007. For this year’s memorial on them, Unit 1012 will post a quote from Chris’s father, Hugh Newsom, in favor of the death penalty:
Together with more than 20+ murdered victims, we remember Channon Christian and Christopher Newsom on observances Day like the National Day of Remembrance for Murder Victims (September 25) and Tree of Angels Ceremony (December) every year.
We will never forget them on their birthdays too.
"There are a lot of people that are parading across the United States and the world against the death penalty. This is the first time that anyone has asked the Newsom family what they think."We lost a very great kid by murder. His girlfriend was murdered. There are a lot of people that throw us their opinion and they've never been affected by crimes like this."We're not animals, we're humans and we all have feelings. If the choice was there, I would want a person put to death with the least suffering, but if that's unavailable then, whatever means the state has at their disposable is acceptable."- Christopher Newsom was travelling with his girlfriend when the couple were kidnapped and murdered. His father Hugh Newsom supports the death penalty.
