NASHVILLE, Tenn. - Phone calls from the accused Antioch church shooter, Emanuel Samson, revealed shocking new revelations.
NewsChannel 5 obtained exclusive, recorded copies of those calls. Samson's defense attorneys don't want his recorded phone calls to be made public.
They filed an injunction which was denied by a judge. You have a right to see the content of these calls and Samson has a right to get a new attorney.
He was charged with killing Melanie Crow Smith and injuring six others in a shooting at Burnette Chapel Church of Christ in Antioch last month.
Since then he's been represented by the Metro public defenders office, but in one call he and his girlfriend discuss finding a new legal team and she claims lawyers are lining up.
"It's a well-known case. It's public. They know they are going to get a lot of publicity from taking the case and they are just waxing honestly," said his girlfriend.
Samson responded, "I didn't know not necessarily the severity, but I guess the limelight shown on this weakass case of mine."
He talks of hoping to get out of jail soon on bond. The reason? He's about to become a father.
"This is your first child and I don't want you to miss out on anything and I don't want to do this without you baby," said his girlfriend. "You're coming home baby. You're coming home."
"I know I am," said Samson. "Hey, like by any means baby. that's damn straight. Or die trying.
That is one of several times over several conversations Samson refers to dying.
There were reports that he was suicidal in recent months.
Here Samson talks about an argument with his girlfriend that led him to drive away from their home the morning of the church shooting.
"Everything about that day, man, dude. It's just like to say that I would be a fool to leave you," said Samson.
His girlfriend responded, "I seen you in a way saying goodbye to the kids. Your gestures you were doing the way ... the things your were saying. You were saying goodbye."
"You know what," said Samson. "You are right. That is exactly what I was saying to them or whatever."
Does that means Samson left the home that morning with plans to shoot up a church and possibly take his own life?
These recorded phones calls will likely play a role in his trial. If and when he is indicted a jury will decide.
Samson's attorneys are still seeking to block further release of any jailhouse phone calls claiming the content hurts their client's right to a fair trial.
We do have them all and Nick will be back with more stories, but as of Tuesday, a judge blocked the release of any more calls to other media.
Melanie Crow Smith is never coming home.
Those two sound like they have no idea of the gravity of his crime.
The only way he should EVER see that baby is thru the flames of a devil’s eternal hell.
To low-IQ narcissists like this, other humans aren’t quite real.
Makes my flesh crawl.
Good tag lie, btw.
I remember a case a few years back where a teenager had killed another young person, and after many hours of interrogation the police got a confession; by that time it was early evening, and getting dark.
He was placed under arrest and led to a holding cell in the police station while they made arrangements with a jail to take him.
As he was being put in the holding cell, he asks the (female) officer who's about to close the door on him "can I go home soon?"
He was absolutely shocked when the officer told him he wouldn't be going home, at least not that night. He couldn't believe it.
I meant “tag line,” of course, not “tag lie.”
“He was absolutely shocked when the officer told him he wouldn’t be going home, at least not that night. He couldn’t believe it.”
Was he mentally impaired, or whatever you’re allowed to say these days?
“When you never have been held responsible for anything it comes as a shock the first time you run square into reality.”
We were held responsible from the first age at which we could understand. No later than three, for sure.
Well, we were just flyover country rednecks. Didn’t have the benefit of big-city educational “pioneers.”
I took it from something Maskot said.
Thanks Colonel. It’s nice to see a story on this, finally. The MSM is trying hard to keep any discussion of this Sudanese church shooter under the covers. Probably because, as we saw in Texas, it was a legal gun owner who ran and got his gun and was able to interrupt this maggot’s shooting spree. May he rot.
A refresher on who Emanuel Kidega Samson is:
Yes, I would say so. I wish I could remember the circumstances. I think he wasn't "playing with a full deck" as they say.
I think that case was the sort of case that led the Supreme Court to outlaw the death penalty for young offenders. There have been a number of these cases, where the murderer actually appeared to not understand the significance of what he or she had done, or at least was able to pretend such a level of ignorance to the satisfaction of a judge.
“I think that case was the sort of case that led the Supreme Court to outlaw the death penalty for young offenders.”
Hard cases make bad law.
Hey lady your are not going see your scumbag old man at home again. He MURDERED INNOCENT PEOPLE !!! He NEEDS TO BE PUT DOWN LIKE A RABID DOG !!!
And when your Baby needs to be given to a real loving caring Couple.
Then you need to go to HELL !!!
