Billy Chambers, Racist Killer of Seattle’s Beloved “Tuba Man,” Edward McMichael, Pleads Guilty, Gets Minimal Sentence, in Attempted Murder of Witness


Murder victim Edward "Tuba Man" McMichael.


Baby-faced killer, Billy Chambers.

Our man in Seattle, BR, who sent this along, and who informed me of the murder of Tuba Man in the first place, back in 2008, writes:

Note that it is a short sentence (what else?)—so you can be sure that the creep will commit more crimes after his brief rest. It is also his first strike, so he has to be caught in two more crimes, before we are rid of him.

“Tuba Man” killer facing prison after hit-and-run plea

Billy Chambers, who was convicted as a juvenile of the 2008 slaying of Seattle street musician Ed "Tuba Man" McMichael, pleaded guilty Friday to deliberately crashing into a woman's car.

Chambers, 18, was arrested by Seattle police earlier this year after a woman said that he intentionally struck her car on June 23. Chambers pleaded guilty to attempted second-degree assault and hit and run in King County Superior Court.

Prosecutors said they are seeking a sentence of a year and a half in prison when he is sentenced. A sentencing date has not been set.

"The plea entered by the defendant will send him to prison and count as his first strike," said Ian Goodhew, deputy chief of staff for the King County Prosecutor's Office. "Under state law, juvenile convictions do not count as strikable offenses."

Prosecutors say that Chambers struck the woman's car and ran her off the road because she had filed a police report against him after an earlier car prowl.

Chambers is accused of rear-ending the woman's car while it was stopped for a traffic light at 23rd Avenue South and South Jackson Street in the Central Area. The woman told police that as she tried to drive away the same car followed in the next lane and swerved toward the passenger side of her car, causing her to leave the roadway and strike a tree, according to charging paperwork. The woman was not hurt.

She told officers that she recognized the driver of the mid-1990s Ford Crown Victoria that hit her. She said that she had reported him to police about a week earlier after he allegedly broke into her car, according to charging paperwork.

Police located the Crown Victoria parked outside Chambers' home and were allowed inside. When Chambers was arrested he told police that he had been sleeping all day and that someone else had been using his car.

"The defendant was angry at the victim for filing a police report against him," Senior Deputy Prosecutor Amy Montgomery wrote in charging documents. "While it is fortunate that no occupants of the car or pedestrians were injured, it does not lessen the risk that the defendant's violent actions could harm someone."

Montgomery said that Chambers has prior convictions as an adult for first- and third-degree theft. And juvenile convictions for first-degree manslaughter, second-degree robbery and possession of stolen property, Montgomery wrote.

Chambers, who was 15 when he and two other boys were prosecuted in McMichael's slaying, spent about 18 months at Maple Lane School in Centralia in connection with McMichael's death and another robbery on the same night in October 2008.

The sentences for Chambers and the two other youths who fatally beat McMichaels outraged many in the community. Because no witnesses came forward, King County Prosecutor Dan Satterberg said his office was forced to charge the three teens as juveniles instead of seeking to have them charged as adults. [N.S.: There were several witnesses, but all of them were black, and they all followed the “don’t snitch” rule, which is one of the foundational rules of black anti-morality.]

For 20 years, McMichael, 53, was a fixture at Mariners, Sonics and Seahawks' games and around the Seattle Center -- trading his talent for spare change.

Chambers is a uncivilized animal.
Who will murder and murder, since he is black he will never do more than two years in prison. And he will always murder white people for it is now legal for negroes to murder humans.

I understand that people are upset about the beloved Tuba man. What I cant understand is the hate that you have in your heart. Its one thing to comment but to wish death on a child or wish that any person burn in hell is hateful itself. How can you judge anyone when you have ugly in your heart?There isn't a day that Billy doesn't think about that night!You people should be praying for him because you never know what GOD may use him for.GOD can change anyone because he did it for me. I dedicate my life to my son inorder for him to change. I'm starting to think maybe some of you need to get in the cell with him so that you both can pray together..
