These 6 people were arrested and charged with kidnapping, sexual assault, and torture after holding and horrendously abusing a 23 year old black woman. Two of them are mother and daughter and two are mother and son. The FBI is investigating the possibility of this being a hate crime.

When we first reported on this, some of our posters questioned why this would qualify for a hate crime when the Knoxville murders did not. I don't have all the answers but I would surmise that since the victim was able to report to the police that she was told this was because she was black and that the "N" word was used every time they stabbed her then it might be a slam-dunk. However, in the Knoxville murders both victims were killed and according to police there is no evidence linking this to race.

This is where hate crime legislations fails. I have said it before and will say it again - hate crimes are difficult to prove. There is no way to know if a person is victimized because of race, religion, sexual orientation, etc. unless there is blatant prejudiced displayed and witnessed during the commission of a crime. Every crime by one race against another does not qualify as a hate crime.

I'll ask the questions again, hoping to get some sensible answers - Does hate crime legislation need to be more clear in its' wording; does hate crime legislation serve as a deterrent; aren't most violent crimes, crimes of hate?

As far as I am concerned - the crimes committed in West Virginia, just as the crimes in Knoxville, are heinous beyond belief. I hope to God that those guilty rot in prison forever.


  1. A "stand-alone" emphasis on hate is both inflammatory and unnecessary. Unnecessary in the sense that most statutes already discriminate between a "first-degree" offense vs. a "second-degree" offense.

    Charging someone with a first-degree infraction implies full culpability - the offender deliberately planned and committed the crime with malice aforethought. Thus, if someone commits assault and battery, and yelled racial slurs during the attack, they could be charged with first-degree assault and battery, since the use of racial slurs implies malice aforethought. One does not need to pile on an additional "hate" enhancer - it would merely serve to inflame the community.

    And we saw in Knoxville how the failure of the local authorities to charge the perpetrators of the Christian-Newsom atrocity became so inflammatory that it led to two separate rallies.

    This is where the multicultural movement breaks down - it promotes diversity merely as an end unto itself rather than as a means to a greater, more flexible unity. Here's a particularly irritating example: When we call upon Americans to learn Spanish to accomodate Hispanic immigrants rather than apply pressure to Hispanic immigrants to learn English, we are making Spanish co-equal in value to English. It is not appropriate to force Americans to learn a foreign language in their own country just to stay employable. Diversity actually becomes "reverse colonization" at that point. And if other races are allowed to have their racial lobbies, we in the white community are entitled to the same prerogative.

  2. AA Said...

    So...are you saying that hate crime legislation only serves to divide us further?

  3. I'll ask the questions again, hoping to get some sensible answers - Does hate crime legislation need to be more clear in its' wording

    it'll never be made 'more clear in its wording'; why? because: 'vague, mis-leading & obfusticating' "legislation" is just the way the Talmudic Tyrants want it....just like the so-called 'anti-terrorist' legislation; harks back to the old USSR & their 'counter-revolutionary' "legislation"...same crew, different hair-cuts!

    re: 'AA'....there's nuthin' new under the sun; diversity/mult-culturalism is the same old tactics that the Roman Empire used to subdue native pplts they regarded as obstreperous or potentially obstreperous; 'land, people. gods'....requisition/sequester all the land/assets of a nation(i.e: its 'wealth'), dilute the racial characteristics of a people by importing totally alien peoples(blacks, jews &c!) and destroy the native beliefs/religion(s) of a population by utilising alien philosophies and/or beliefs.....ZOGs use tried & true tactics....the only effective resistance is what the ancient Germans did under Hermann (called: 'Arminius' by the Romans) in the Teutoberg Forest!

    'culture is a racial construct'!

  4. Racism is a disease "Jimbo". Education is the cure. Get educated.

  5. Diversity is the disease, Racism is the good cire.

    No Hate Crime Charges in Torture Case

    Associated Press Writer

    BIG CREEK, W.Va.

    Authorities decided Wednesday not to pursue hate crime charges in the kidnapping and weeklong torture of a black woman, instead going after the suspects, who are white, on state charges that carry stiffer penalties.

    While federal civil rights or state hate crime charges remain an option, a state kidnapping count that carries a sentence of up to life in prison will provide the best chance for successful prosecution, officials said.

    "As a practical matter, sentenced to life, what else can be done?" U.S. Attorney Charles T. Miller told The Associated Press.

    Six people face charges, including kidnapping, sexual assault and lying to police in the torture of Megan Williams, 20, at a remote hillside home in Big Creek.

    State hate crime charges, which carry a sentence of 10 years, could come later, prosecutor Brian Abraham said. State sexual assault charges carry a penalty up to 35 years in prison.

    The woman's captors forced her to eat rat droppings, choked her with a cable cord and stabbed her in the leg while calling her a racial slur, according to criminal complaints. They also poured hot water over her, made her drink from a toilet, and beat and sexually assaulted her during a span of about a week, the documents say.

    Williams was not a random target, prosecutor Brian Abraham said Wednesday. She had a "social relationship" with one of the suspects, he said.

    The Associated Press generally does not identify suspected victims of sexual assault, but Williams and her mother, Carmen Williams, agreed to release her name. Carmen Williams said she wanted people to know what her daughter had endured.

    At one point, a suspect cut the woman's ankle with a knife and used the N-word in telling her she was victimized because she is black, according to the complaints.

    It wasn't until an anonymous tip led Logan County sheriff's deputies to the property on Saturday that her ordeal ended, authorities said. She limped toward the deputies, her arms outstretched as she cried, "Help me," officials said.

    Williams remained hospitalized Wednesday in Charleston. The hospital declined to release any information about her condition.

    The victim had a previous relationship with Bobby Brewster, one of the six in custody, Abraham said. He was charged in July with domestic battery and assault after a domestic dispute involving the same woman.

    "She obviously had some sort of social relationship," Abraham said. "That is based on the fact that she was present at his residence on a prior date."

    The suspects have arrest records going back several years, according to records from Logan County Magistrate Court, and Abraham said was he familiar with all of them.

    "Most of the charges are minor things," Abraham said. "Basically on weekends they get in trouble and by the middle of the week they make up with each other."

    Since 1991, police have filed 108 criminal charges against the six.

    Brewster's mother, Frankie Brewster, 49, faced the most serious charges among them. She was charged in 1994 with first-degree murder but pleaded guilty to manslaughter and wanton endangerment. She was released from prison in 2000 after serving five years in the death of an 84-year-old woman, court records show.

    In Williams' case, Frankie Brewster is charged with kidnapping, sexual assault, malicious wounding and giving false information during a felony investigation.

    Bobby Brewster, 24, also of Big Creek, is charged with kidnapping, sexual assault, malicious wounding and assault during the commission of a felony.

    In March, Brewster was accused in criminal complaints of attacking his mother with a machete at her home, according to court records. The outcome of those charges -- domestic assault, brandishing a deadly weapon and obstructing an officer -- was not immediately clear.

    Danny J. Combs, 20, of Harts, is charged with sexual assault and malicious wounding. Karen Burton, 46, of Chapmanville, was charged with malicious wounding, battery and assault during the commission of a felony.

    Burton's daughter, Alisha Burton, 23, and George A. Messer, 27, both of Chapmanville, are charged with assault during the commission of a felony and battery. She previously faced charges of assault during the commission of a felony and battery; in May, she was accused of striking Messer with a shovel and smashing the window of a woman's car. The charges are pending.

    All six remained in custody Wednesday in lieu of $100,000 cash bail each. Bobby Brewster is scheduled to appear before a Logan County Circuit Court judge on Monday to be arraigned on the kidnapping charge, according to court records. A date for his mother's appearance on the kidnapping charge has not yet been set.

    Public defender Dwyane Adkins, appointed to represent Bobby Brewster, and public defender Betty Gregory, appointed to represent Karen Burton, declined to comment. The other defendants' court-appointed lawyers were either in hearings or did not immediately return telephone calls Wednesday.

    Neighbors of Megan Williams in Charleston recalled her as sweet-natured but said her family members kept largely to themselves.

    "They were isolated, in a way," said the Rev. Norman Jones of the Greater Emmanuel Gospel Tabernacle, which Carmen Williams attended. "Carmen was very protective of Megan, so it was hard to know her well."

  7. What the racist always fail to point out is that blacks are more likely to be charged with a hate crime than whites per capita.

    But these idiots always seem to think that only white people are charged with hate crimes.

  8. $100 thou' bail on 'kidnapping' charges seems smallish to me!
    (i thought 'kid-napping' was a federal offence in the 'Kwa?).....i'd say that 'the state' has a weakish case here...or thinks it will 'buckle' only one or two of this gang @ most!.....i can see a 'deal' being done; re: 'state`s evidence' (i.e: one or more of the 'accused' rats out the rest!)

  9. 108 criminal charges against the six during the last 16 years? And they were all out of jail when the crime happened??

    Notice the silence from white supremacist message boards on this crime.
