Chanel Lewis Karina Vetrano

Chanel Lewis, the man who killed Queens jogger Karina Vetrano last year, admitted he raped and strangled her because he hated women.

Lewis was arrested around 6 p.m. Saturday outside the home he shared with his single mother, Veta Lewis, his two sisters and the sisters' small children.

Lewis' father, Richard Lewis, a 70-year-old retired school principal, was absent during his son's formative years.

Without a father figure in the home to balance out the Estrogen-dominant household, Lewis, a shy introverted man, developed an unhealthy festering rage toward all females.

Lewis admitted turning his rage on Karina Vetrano, 30, as she jogged in a Queens park near her father's Howard Beach, NY home on August 2nd.

Her father, Phillip, found her body among tall weeds later that night in a wooded area just off the trail.

Vetrano fought for her life. Police say she may have bitten her attacker. Her teeth were cracked and one tooth was knocked out during the fierce struggle.

Lewis voluntarily submitted a DNA sample on Feb. 2. The sample matched DNA found under Vetrano's fingernails and on her back.

“He doesn’t have a criminal record but he’s had previous incidents in which he has expressed a hatred for women, a police source told the NY Daily News.

"He’s thought of hurting women or attacking women. He’s expressed a deep-seated aggression towards women. But it was nothing he’s ever acted on."

“This defendant admitted to attacking the victim, admitted to beating her, to strangling her and dragging her body into the weeds," said Assistant District Attorney Michael Curtis.

“The victim was out for a jog less than one mile from her house and was attacked, savagely beaten and strangled to death,” said Curtis.

Investigators believe Lewis punched Vetrano in the face before dragging her into the tall weeds.

Police said a used condom was found on the jogging trail not far from where Vetrano was attacked.

Studies show that boys who are raised in all-female environments tend to be confused about their own sexuality. Some boys develop unconscious conflicts with their sexuality and a deep fear that they might be homosexual.

98 percent of sexual assaults against women in America are committed by men who are at odds with their own sexuality.

This is why child experts say children under the age of 7 who fail to bond emotionally with one or both parents -- particularly the same-sex parent -- are at risk of developing abnormal sexual behaviors, such as homosexuality.

  • I Run New York

    Damn, savagery.

  • SummerBaby

    The father was absent? Was he at work or living separately?

  • Whatever

    I have been reading he lived with his dad. Not his mother.

    "The younger Lewis lived with his dad at the time of the murder, in an apartment not far from where Vetrano’s body was found.The bewildered dad gave the Daily News a tour of his son’s bedroom, where an old report card showed good grades for behavior and academic performance."

  • MsSincerity

    Somebody commented on here yesterday, saying that in a video, he appeared slow. So I'm wondering did they frame him, because the person on the sketch has a full beard, but this boy looks like he's incapable of growing facial hair, especially at that amount.

  • Jahnée Gill Mr.Eddie Murphy

    He didn't kill her. Did the pigs put a bullet proof vest on him to make him appear bigger? I've seen Chanel Lewis in person in passing he's very slim in person. I don't believe he killed that woman, it's been a year. The YT folks needed a suspect.

  • shun king

    So you think it not odd that 75% of men in prison come from single parent house holds?

  • Whatever

    The person originally who identified him as "suspicious" MONTHS before the killing, was a police officer. Oh so perfect.

    "Then Lt. John Russo, who works in the Chief of Detectives office and also lives in Howard Beach, remembered something.

    Russo had seen Lewis lurking around parked cars in Howard Beach in late May. Russo called 911, as did another resident who saw Lewis holding a crowbar and skulking around someone’s backyard. When patrol officers arrived, Lewis was gone. The following day, Russo spotted Lewis again, and cops arrived to question him."

  • Jahnée Gill Mr.Eddie Murphy

    That sketch cleary shows a non black hispanic older man. Not a young black man that can't grow a beard.

    Just because he live with his dad doesn't mean they bonded?. He has his son when he was 50. Most likely energy wise he couldn't be as active as he could. Now that he's 70, they probably don't hangout much? So sad

  • Whatever

    This is a lie. Prince George's County (the nation’s highest-income majority-black county). 50% (last I checked 50% is half) of all Prince George’s households are headed by a single parent. So perhaps fact check next time before spouting inaccuracies.

  • Justlooknout

    Who knows. I will have to go and do my research. But he's black, so we gotta weigh on the side of caution and BS

  • Jahnée Gill Mr.Eddie Murphy

    I thought that was the case too, but then I remembered how slim chanel is a how he looks nothing like the older man in the sketch.

  • hottlanta

    There she goes again with her Dr. Phil emotional medical minute. For some reason she can't get past the age 7. I thought the name Chanel was a girl name; Then when I saw him I said whoa. He could hate women because he was rejected by women because their are some men if you tell them "NO" they get pissed because they read words on this blog and listen to Steve Harvey about the shortage of black men so women should be grateful that they even look at us and how dare we turn them down. We should take anything and pass them around like a cow at the country fair and show the world we have a man. He is the kind of man that looks like he was kept in the booty call zone because no one will show him to the public.

  • CutdBS

    YOU are the exception not the most young black adults aren't so lucky

  • Renee26

    So the father is the absent parent....what are the mother and sister saying about his personality and behavior after the crime happened?? They lived with him. So many questions. I hope they have the right person and are not framing this guy.

    He looks disturbed. This is so sad!

    What does this have to do with the young man accused? His father is a retired educator and he made straight A's and did well in school as proven by his school records.

  • Irony

    I'm going to say this and leave it be! As black men you brothers shouldn't sit here and allow these type of statistics be forced upon us, you should speak up and state how you're not part of that statistic. But you would rather sit here and go along with it. Then pick on the women of this site...WAIT you may be I that statistic but I'm not! By the way this young man looks nothing like that sketch!

    He doesn't look like he was getting any booty calls to me. He looks slow; slow enough to nod and agree to whatever somebody says as long as they offer him a candy bar or the freedom to go home. His look is one of the main reasons so many people are suspicious of this arrest but also the reason others are satisfied with the arrest.

    How can he hate women and live with 3-4 of them? Hatred is a strong feeling and it seems a person would commit suicide before going to prison. I'm confused too.

    The sketch is of a white man witnesses saw loitering in the area.

  • CutdBS

    https://www.city-journal.org/html/let’s-end-housing-vouchers-12152.html

    But out in the blue-collar and middle-class neighborhoods where voucher holders increasingly live, longtime residents hate the program. It undermines and destabilizes their communities by importing social problems into their midst, they say—vociferously enough to get the attention of local legislators. Though the program's supporters dismiss the critics (some of whom are black) as racists, they are nothing of the kind. And they are right.
    In south suburban Chicago, with one of the highest concentrations of voucher holders in the country, middle-class African-American residents complain that they thought they'd left the ghetto behind—only to find that the federal government is subsidizing it to follow them. Vikkey Perez of Richton Park, Illinois, owner of Nubian Beauty Supply, fears that the small signs of disorder that have come with voucher tenants—the unmown lawns and shopping carts left in the street—could undermine the neighborhood. "Their life-style," she says, "doesn't blend with our suburban life-style." Kevin Moore, a hospital administrator and homeowner in nearby Hazelcrest, complains that children in voucher homes go unsupervised. Boom boxes play late at night. "I felt like I was back on the West Side," he says, referring to the Chicago ghetto where he grew up. "You have to remember how to act tough."

    In South Philadelphia's Irish and Italian neighborhoods, which have seen an influx of voucher holders, elected officials report being inundated with constituent complaints—and watching white constituents move out of the neighborhood. The area's state representative, William Keller, describes how owners of row houses suddenly find that "the house next door is being rented to people whose kids are up all night, who are out in the street yelling 'M-F' this and 'M-F' that. It's like they're trying to find the worst people." The issue, he says, "isn't race; it's class."

    In Maryland's Prince George's County, an area of the Washington, D.C., suburbs with a large concentration of middle-class black residents, hundreds of voucher tenants—many of whom come from Washington, since vouchers are portable from one jurisdiction to another—do not pay their utility bills or their required 30 percent share of the rent. "We're very concerned about the program," says Mary Lou McDonough of the Prince George's Housing Authority, which doles out the vouchers. The Authority is concerned about more than non-payment. Unlike most such agencies, it screens its voucher applicants, and it finds that some of the households have criminal records—including, recently, a murder conviction. Every year, the authority boots out 25 or 30 voucher holders for brand-new crimes, usually drug-related.

Did he understand why they were collecting his DNA or was he tricked into handing it over? Last but not least, Whose the man in the police sketch?

    If you want to understand human nature today, you must go back to the beginning of humanity. Men are natural born hunters and warriors. When boy children were old enough to walk, they picked up a bow and went hunting with the menfolk ,while the women - including girl siblings - stayed behind and prepared for the feast the men brought back. Homosexuality was rare in the beginning because boys didn't hang around females all day.

    You have to be careful using statistics as to not consume yourself with falsehoods. There's a difference.

All prisoners are the exception not the rule in actuality since only 4% ever go to prison in America which is the highest in the world but it's still not a majority of people. Also poverty plays a huge role that can't be denied.

  • LibraGirlonly

    FYI no one is saying we don't need to have both parents in the home and that goes for both mother and fathers but being raised by a single parent doesn't make you no killer or someone that hates women. That means the person or persons who raised you failed at some point

  • Reina1718

    They dismissed the condom finding

  • Renee26

    I don't even think that mentality of not needing or wanting a man exists. Woman have just been put in a position to fend for themselves and take it all on themselves. A woman has to know that she is worthy of a GOOD man, not just any man. BUT so many women end up bringing just ANY man into the home because there's so much influence put on having a man that all self worth and commons sense go out of the window....When a woman continues to carry on and take on the burdens they are left with it's always seen as a negative. I see it as strength and resilience. I applaud single mothers 100%

    Whole families can get welfare though. Married couples can qualify for assistance. Men can get assistance too. That's why I never understood that concept....we all know that welfare was created for white women. Black woman were denied when the program first became available.

    True. But women who declare that they "don't like women" have deeper issues than just encountering a few stank personalities. To make such a statement that blankets the entire population of a species or gender is just plain crazy. That's like hating men just because you encountered some fawk-boys along your dating journey... No one does that, and those that do have deeper internal issues to make such a flagrant decision about ALL individuals who fall into that catagory.

    Not even so much that the parents failed...sometimes parents can get so wrapped up in providing that they miss the opportunity to make that mental/emotional connection with their children. When you do have a connection with your child you can read their moods. You can tell when they're upset about something or bothered by something and take the opportunity to address the issue head on.

    I disagree being raised by a single parent is difficult but it has nothing to do with if the child is going to be a killer of women or disrespectful towards women. In cases I have seen the male is usually more in tune with a woman's needs. Like being able to cook, clean etc. I know my son ooks for his woman all the time and I'm talking about some collard greens and fried chicken. Lol He will make a good husband because he knows how to do domestic stuff as well as handyman stuff.

  • Queen of EVERYTHING

    You may have done an excellent job raising those men, but it is completely undeniable that there is a present deficit in their life and upbringing by not having a constant male-father figure to co-rear them in the household. You may never ever be made aware of their internal challenges or personal battles as men because of this. My mom has no idea of the challenges and struggles I have and do face as a fatherless child... I feel it would have been a slap in the face of epic unappreciative proportions to ever express that lack of understanding the male species and my appropriate role with males that I've always felt by not having a willing father to participate in my development. On the outside it appears to all that she raised a diamond.

  • nucynu25

    Preach

  • Scromes1212

    I understand you disagree but that doesn't change the facts. It's proven that having one parent can negatively affect children. Especially young black males because they deal with so much in our society. It's crucial that black men step up in our community as to not repeat the cycle.

  • LibraGirlonly

    But no one is crapping on single mother's dear. We uplift and exhalt single mommy's because without their unconditional love many children would be left to fend for self and/or raised by wolves. Just understand single mommyhood is unfair and nothing that any woman should accept or find pride in. Single mommyhood isn't a voluntary choice it is a forced hand. No matter how successful you are at mothering, the fact that a man exploited your womb and love to leave you defenseless and on your own with offspring has a hurtful effect every single moment and unfortunately speaks VOLUMES to your children.

    Wow. You should brush up your knowledge and take a cultural anthropology class. The archaic theory of women being uninvolved in the acquisition of food during the Cenozoic era is false. New findings in the last 50 years have undoubtedly disproved the theory that women waited on the men to return with food. First man shared earth space with the first land mammals including Mammoths and such... It was completely unrealistic for humans to hunt and gather outside of pack formation. They would have been a sitting meal for larger land roaming animals that were highly inclined to the attraction of human scents and pheromones. Leaving women behind with no male protection would have made humans completely vulnerable and threatened the most important function of that time; procreation. We would not have thrived as a species to the point that we currently are if men left women in eminent danger to hunt food. Sex roles did not come into play until the era of human civilization and specific division of labor... By that time we were also living in sheltered confines (early homes) which lowered our vulnerability to other animal attacks.

    Growing up and interacting with kids from VARIOUS backgrounds/cultures.. the non-black students who had two parent households were FAR more dysfunctional than anyone else. They had more freedom and access to EVERYTHING. Hard core drugs. Prostitution. Horrible attitudes. Psychotic behaviors/Mental health issues. Only difference is people like you exist who are so quick to downplay what's going on in other communities because you've been conditioned to blame single black women and black males for everything. How do you explain all of these non black couples overdosing/dying in front of heir children. It has become a SERIOUS epidemic. Two parents. One household. What happened?!

    7 Blessed are the merciful: for they shall obtain mercy.

    8 Blessed are the pure in heart: for they shall see God.

    9 Blessed are the peacemakers: for they shall be called the children of God.

    10 Blessed are they which are persecuted for righteousness' sake: for theirs is the kingdom of heaven.

    11 Blessed are ye, when men shall revile you, and persecute you, and shall say all manner of evil against you falsely, for my sake.

    12 Rejoice, and be exceeding glad: for great is your reward in heaven: for so persecuted they the prophets which were before you.

    13 Ye are the salt of the earth: but if the salt have lost his savour, wherewith shall it be salted? it is thenceforth good for nothing, but to be cast out, and to be trodden under foot of men.

    I do agree that a single parent of either gender can raise a child to be responsible and mature BUR we all know the country, ignorant ones who do not. I have known women who are not "mean" to their children BUT they do not monitor nor keep certain low brow people away from their kids.

  • Enoughsaid2020

    I've dealt with a few guys, who were raised by all women. From my observation, they tend to have a very conflicted relationship with women, and their relationships are very challenging. This tends to happen if the father is either absent, or not positive. Women just be careful of guys, who do not have a healthy relationship, with their mothers, or fathers.

    I'll check it out...but before I do I will say this...all government assistance is meant to be temporary. If a woman meets a man and enters a relationship with him while she's on government assistance he should be the type of man who will be working towards bettering the situation. He should be providing in some manner.

  • AlwaysababymamaneverAbride

    Most of these girls are willing participants. They love the attention. I just saw a video of a black girl fudging two dudes in a car in broad daylight on IG.

  • Renee26

    Ok...in households where both parents are working the need for assistance wouldn't be as high. Those couples could transition out of the government housing or into another housing program that goes by income...The assistance is supposed to be temporary but there will ALWAYS be people who will take advantage of the help.

    Profiling and coercion for a statement is real as well as staging evidence to close a case or incarcerate, especially if a mentally challenged person does not know his/hers right and do not have a voice.

    Not sure if this is the case. It is a good thing that his family can raise the funds for a decent lawyer to take a look at how the evidence really went down.

When her mom was fussing abt it she said " it wasn't that big of a deal . There are worst things happening in the world." At any given time you can hear her having a long drawn out convo with her self .. and the worst part of it all ...all the money my aunt has spent on diff docs no one has an answer . ? My aunt was so mad when she got kicked out my mom literally had to stop her from strangling my little cousin . My Gma frankly says " the girl is crazy .. you can't beat no sense in to her ."

  • https://provokedthoughts46.wordpress.com ProvokedThoughts46

    Was it necessary to point out that she is a single mother? I know children from two parent households that still got into trouble. We were children once and there are times I didn't listen to what my parents said because in my immature mind I thought I knew better. Then I grew up and realized I made my own mistakes so I owned up to them and did better because I knew better. Some people just never grow up and get the message, that doesn't always mean that their parent's/parent didn't teach them better. I don't think people truly understand the depth of being a parent until they become one.

  • Reina1718

    I agree...this was in broad daylight he managed to do this..knocking her teeth out...if they saw him suspicious in this area after it happened why not question him then? & who gave that sketch of him? What witness saw what the murderer looked like??

    A professed proud white racist who admits he is racist said this is what he thinks happened and I find it very interesting.
    ---------------------------------------------------------

    I know this is not going to be popular to say on here, and if I am wrong I have no problem being corrected, but I think there's a slim chance he didn't do it.

    Something's not right about this capture. They withheld his identity too long once they "caught" him. Usually, and especially with these type of suspects, they'll release info as soon as the cuffs go on his/her wrists. I'm not believing this one... not yet.

    I questioned why her father seemed to think the worse had occurred because she was an hour or two late from coming back from her jog. Besides, the father knew exactly where to find her body. I always thought this was a mob related hit because they punched out her teeth. That's usually what they do to snitches. Whoever did it had to know her routine because they knew exactly where to find her at that park. She also broke up with her ex boyfriend days before she died. That is another one I would be suspicious about.

    The little I know it seems like she knew her attacker. The fight wasn't just for her life but also a betrayal. Sometimes investigators release information to the public to throw suspects off into believing they are heading in one direction when not.

    I am very familiar with the area where this girl was killed. Anyone who knows anything about the area has to know that this type of thing does not go on there in any way shape or form because everyone over there is "family affiliated"

    That's John Gotti's old stomping grounds. Whomever did this was sent by or is someone who knows that girl and her family. Not some random disturbed boy from East New York.

    Usually they are. My ex-fiancé dad was a control freak, so he just repeated the behavior, and his son did the same thing, and sadly his son is in prison. All three of these men had bad relationships either, the mother, father, wife, or girlfriend. You really have to analyze this behavior, before getting to deeply involved with someone.

    Now, THIS I can see being a possibility given the area she is from and was found.

    Still, I find it possible that Chanel Lewis could've raped and murdered her because there are young otherwise seemingly normal men who secretly harbor violent hatred toward women and a woman can just happen to cross their path on the wrong day.

    A few years ago remember that mixed Asian kid at some college that went on shooting spree of (white) women because he said he couldn't get a girlfriend. People said he was awkward but no one imagined he was a killer. He wasn't even ugly, just awkward and his parents were devastated and defended him too.

    The bigger picture is as women we need to have extra caution and common sense. Life's unfair and we can't enjoy some of the free will and simple liberties men do because of safety concerns.

    Can't jog by ourselves, can't leave a bar, restaurant or coffee shop at night and go to your parked car alone, all the things men take for granted. All I can say is let's all please be safe.

  • hottlanta

    What you mean single parenthood shouldn't be celebrated. I am a single mom and am happy love my life and kids and you say it is a celebration. DAMN right it is. It is thanking God for all of my blessings. I tell my kids all the time that they are my JOY and not my BURDEN. When you are a single mom you are expected/suppose to complain about your life 24/7 and when you don't other people get pissed. Some martial unions shouldn't be celebrated. Ask Camille Cosby how is she gonna celebrate her union with husband Bill this year and get back with me. Steve Harvey should run out of champagne the way he has been celebrating his 3 marriages.

  • HotChocolateHottie

    The father knew something bad happened to her and knew exactly which spot to find her after an hour or two of her notcoming home because he probably had someone do it.

  • Op2

    Exactly! -that is one of the many examples that came to mind when I responded.

  • Op2

    I agree. I bet they are not expecting the public to fine comb through this questionable arrest claiming he is the one.

    -After 6mts of having no real lead, they were probably frustrated and embarrassed in being close to naming a culprit and took the easy way out: someone who is not that bright and happens to be Black.

    After the damage is done and truth is revealed with the real culprit being caught, they will just cut him a check too as if $$ heals that person's ongoing pain, suffering and agony. -now, I could be wrong but something tells me that this is not right (he's not the one who did this)!

  • https://provokedthoughts46.wordpress.com ProvokedThoughts46

    Where in my reply do you see me celebrating anything? The article is supposed to be about a potential murderer being caught, not about single mothers.Being a single parent does not negate the fact that you are very much still a parent, doing two jobs instead of one. I don't understand the stigma. If you are married, have a child then get divorced are you still not a single parent? I know single mothers of all backgrounds but people like to pretend its only black women. I know single fathers. So on that note I'm just going to make you null & void. When you add too much in the mix, you're liable to lose the message. Last year didn't two brothers attempt to take their parents lives? I wonder what your excuse was for them. Please have several extended seats and give single parents respect instead of your unfounded criticism that in the end helps no one including you.

    You missed the whole second sentence. Families that live under the poverty line get assistance just like single women do. Single women who make a wage over that limit also don't qualify for assistance. It's called GROWTH. Use the temporary assistance until you get a job that pays more; once you get that job transition into different housing and support your family with your wages. People do this every day. Yes, it may be hard but that's the struggle of success. You keep striving for better and you will get it. Don't DEPEND on that government assistance to pull you through life. If you have a setback and get impoverished again due to a loss of employment guess what...the welfare is still there. Start all over again.

  • NEW YORK OWNS YOU

    Did anybody else read that he is apparently mentally ill? He was interrogated without an adult present who was mentally competent and I can tell you firsthand people with down syndrome or some other kind of mental issue can be very easily influenced. It's like somebody coming out of having a seizure, a few people would even confess to killing their own mother, psychologically you are in a highly persuasive mindset. There were also over 600 swabs of DNA taken at the crime scene, I just hope that this investigation is thorough and they don't just want to solve it quickly and out it behind them while taking advantage of somebody who is mentally incompetent, black, and doesn't have adequate legal representation. She deserves to have the real killer put behind bars let's just hope they make sure that he is it

    They look nothing alike.

    The guy in the sketch has a full grown beard. Also the witness didn't see anyactual crime being committed.

    Look at how he reacts when shown to the media.

    [url]https://www.youtube.com/watch?v=460YDqJEByc&feature=youtu.be&t=63[/url]

    He's unaware and non-cognizant of what is going on. He walks out smiling (not happy smiling but more of a child-like smile) like he doesn't understand why the cameras are there and what the people are saying. All I saw was a frightened possibly mentally impaired or learning disabled person.

    He's clearly not guilty.

    How could he have committed this and stayed hidden, no slip up at all, for 6 months without understanding that this crime is very bad?

    He commits the crime, finds his way home, with no one witnessing anything ? And he manages to hide it for months and months ?

    I would think if he did something like this (and he's never done anything like this before) that he would be somewhat stunned (given his apparent mental capacity) and would be easily found out by someone.

    The only way that wouldn't happen was if he were some kind of cold hearted psychopath where he doesn't feel any empathy at all

    Something is off. They keep saying he confessed. He confessed to what exactly ?

    Cops have a way of making non-innocent people feel like they committed the crime and no matter how many times they deny it, cops keep going. Depriving them of food. Depriving them of using the bathroom. Depriving them of water. Depriving them of sleep and then getting real personal and mentioning family members.

    They talked that boy into that confession.

    They say she was raped but how is it that his DNA wasn't found on her crotch area ? Not only that but they said he volunteered to submit his DNA. If he was guilty of killing and raping that girl why would he just up and volunteer to submit DNA?

    The girl was strangled and raped but the best they can do is find DNA on the phone ? Not to mention that the DNA match wasn't familial DNA. It was "touch" DNA. He most likely came upon Katrina's body, touched her, touched her phone, left it there and took off.

    This is some John Coffey – Green Mile shit.

    They said.

    “We found the suspect's DNA under her nails but found no evidence that he raped her"

    Isn’t the normal course "it's under investigation and we can't discuss the investigation ?"

    It’s odd that they would let her father help search and he just so happened to find the body. Also she goes out jogging but her father only waits an hour or two to report her missing ? An hour ? F**K outta here.

    She is a grown ass woman. Not to mention he didn't call 911 directly. But he called his off duty cop friend.

    She was raped and murdered as retribution for someone her father
    (Phil Vetrano) did or didn't do. Gambling debts ? Pay back for a wrong ? Some Italian murdered and raped that girl. These Italians are some low-down evil people. There is so much corruption in the NYPD and in Howard Beach period!

    This sounds like the Central Park 5 frame up.

    The Vetrano name has long been associated with mobsters and
    gangsters, all the way back during the Frank Lucas days. The parents live in a multi-million dollar home, so most likely had income from "other sources."

    Italians are known for going after kids to settle unpaid debts and they are also known for punching out teeth.

    But if people think Chanel Lewis is the killer, then the Vetrano family no
    longer has to worry about people sniffing around at their door, or having the mafia off them for beings RATS.

    These sick motherfuckers don't even want justice for their own child if they allow this guy to be framed.

    The daddy's alibi was weird, especially when it was said that he is always out jogging with her except that day. Coincidence?

    Nawwwww!!!!

    From what I’ve read she was a very strong woman and clearly in shape. She was into kickboxing, yoga, and jogging. This guy (Chanel Lewis) is no Jon Jones. He doesn't look the strongest of men. She would have easily taken this guy on or ran off.

    It's easy for black men to be pinned for crimes that we didn't commit. They know that's a ticket the public will always buy.

    After all, a young white woman was murdered and it just had to be a
    black man that did it. Right ?

    Too convenient

    This is why I never want to do jury duty. Prosecutors and other law enforcement just leak, leak, leak trying to prove their case in the court of public opinion to plant seeds of guilt before they go to trial.
    I don't know if this guy is guilty or innocent but I do know he deserves a fair trial in a courtroom and not on the front pages. He attended a school for mentally challenged kids and doesn't have a record either. So he all of a sudden decided to harm this woman? Let's hear the trial and decide.

    What upsets me are the constant leaks and trying him in public before he even goes to trial. That sketch strongly resembles him to me. He just doesn't have the facial hair. Could be someone who looks like him too.

    How men act depends on socialization. That's why when we hear a man 'gossips like a woman' he was probably around a bunch of women growing up. It is very important to have male role models in a boy's life and a woman for a girl's.

    That's true as well.

    Sketch? Um.... did the dead woman provide information? No. So someone just happened to see someone in the area. Very general sketch of someone that that individual thought was sketchy. 600 DNA samples.... and somehow they framed HIM. Silly. How is he going to explain his DNA under her fingernails? His trip to the doctor for his hand? The treating nurses / doctors testimony about the wounds on his hand? The notes about the treatment? His confessions. Guilty is guilty. And before you nutbags go off, my biracial 20 year old child is in jail for being an idiot AND he is guilty. Unlike this young man's parents, I refuse to make excuses for him. His mother and I did our best, he chose his path just like this young man did. Now he needs to deal with the consequences. Fools only think everything is race based and the prisons are full of innocents.
