19-Year-Old Jessica Lane Chambers was brutally murdered in Mississippi two nights ago.
Unfortunately the details of her murder are so horrific to comprehend they make the current racial anxiety in the headlines seem small, yet also potentially more explosive.
…When the fire department got there, she was walking down the road on fire. […] They squirted lighter fluid down her throat and in her nose…
Yes, Jessica was white; and no, by all accounts her killer(s) were not.
She wasn’t just attacked, beaten, and burned alive – she was brutalized beyond all horrific imaginings. When you identify what took place, and contrast her horrific murder against the current national dialogue, you can also understand why the Mississippi Bureau of Investigation (MBI), and all Mississippi politicians, will most likely lead the media to bury this story as quick as possible.
Thanks to President Obama and AG Holder’s intentional use of racial division to advance their political goals; and against the faux racial outrage of Mike Brown and Eric Garner political narrative, the national anxiety around race in general, and racial crime specifically, is tenuously high.
High, and more unstable than recent memory.
If the facts, the gruesome and horrific facts around this story, were to hit the Mainstream Media, Mississippi might well burn. Jessica Lane Chambers suffered a similar fate as another buried and brutal murder story, Channon Christian and Christopher Newsom.
However, unlike when Channon and Christopher were murdered this time there are already protests in the streets – the Christian/Newsom horrific murder was buried at a time when the consequences of discussion were far less.
So it can be expected that all efforts will be deployed to hide and then diffuse the truth of Jessica’s murder. Which leads to the discussion: If we don’t tell this story, who will?
The early reports of Jessica’s death include:
MISSISSIPPI – […] Jessica Chambers, 19, was found burning near her car that was also engulfed in flames. She was flown to a hospital in Memphis but later died. Early autopsy results reveal that Jessica died from severe burns that covered 98 percent of her body.
Her father, Ben Chambers, said investigators told him his daughter was set on fire.
“When the fire department got there, she was walking down the road on fire,” he said. “Only part of her body that wasn’t burned was the bottom of her feet.”
He continued as he held back tears, “They squirted lighter fluid down her throat and in her nose, and apparently they knocked her out. She had a big gash on top of her head.”
In her last breaths, she may have sent investigators down her killer’s trail. (LINK)
However, what you won’t see in that report, or any report, is the race of her attacker(s). One of which, according to exhaustive social media, is already in custody. There are no official accounts of any suspects in custody, and the media narrative is generally explaining the events, however according to her social circle one suspect is in police custody.
Jessica was trying to exit a relationship with a black boyfriend, who, again according to social media accounts, had been abusive to her throughout their relationship. From Jessica’s perspective it was over, however apparently her ex did not accept her leaving.
The identity of the ex-boyfriend is well known to the surrounding multi-cultural community, which is PC code-speak for “the non-white friends and social network” who knew her.
Whether her attacker acted alone, or, as most suspect, had a crew of like-minded thugs enlisted to assist in his brutal attack, is unknown. What is well known is that Jessica had broken away from the abusive boyfriend prior to her murder.
The horrific nature of the murder speaks to a profoundly violent person carrying it out. It is beyond our comprehension what she had to endure in those final moments of her life.
However, looking to the larger picture, and knowing the MBI (Mississippi Bureau of Investigation) has taken lead in the investigation -under the auspices of her father, Ben Chambers, working for the Sheriff’s department- it’s not a leap to quickly identify how the MBI and Mississippi political class would immediately want to tamp this down.
Unlike the death of Mike Brown, and unlike the death of Eric Garner, Jessica’s death was premeditated murder with extreme malice aforethought and horrifically special circumstances – which, if proven, will most assuredly result in a death penalty charge against at least one of her murderers, perhaps more.
Then again, jail might be the safest place for him/them:
Anyone with information on the murder is urged to contact the Panola County Sheriff’s Office at 662-563-6230.
UPDATE: 2:00pm 12/9/14 (EST) “Coincidentally” DOJ Attorney General Eric Holder is in Mississippi today for a My Brother’s Keeper speech. Notably he cancelled a following timed engagement for “pressing matters”.
In addition, according to people on the ground in Panola County, the DOJ-CRS entered the case this morning. For those of you unfamiliar, the DOJ-CRS is the federal “Department of Justice – Community Relations Service”.
The CRS involvement means essentially that local officials and MBI (Mississippi Bureau of Investigation) will have specific guidelines to follow with any/all media contacts. The media will be given a specific, sensitive, heavily controlled messaging narrative. Those of you who have followed the CRS over the past 5 years know exactly what that means.
