msnbc ^ | 06/27/2012 | Miranda Leitsinger

Posted on 06/27/2012 1:47:25 PM PDT by Responsibility2nd

Texas Rangers have joined the investigation into the shooting of two teenage girls at a South Texas park last weekend that left one of the young women dead and the other severely injured, a state public safety spokesman said Tuesday.

Portland Police had asked the Texas Rangers for help, kiiitv.com reported, and Rangers were at the park on Tuesday looking for clues near where the pair was found.

"The Texas Rangers are assisting in the Portland investigation. We offered our assistance and they accepted and we have been actively involved in the investigation since Sunday," Tom Vinger, spokesman for Texas Department of Public Safety, wrote to msnbc.com in an email.

I think the Rangers have a good chance. They’re leading AL West with 46-29 (.613).

Oh wait...sorry...

“Taking a wild guess. Murder failed suicide.”

...in which case it will immediately disappear from the news because rather than feed into a false hate crime narrative, it would suddenly become yet another instance of gay on gay violence (which we aren't allowed to mention because facts are such inconvenient things!)

If the couple had been normal—maybe one local story would have been adequate.

Taking a wild guess. Murder failed suicide.

Unlikely: "Wright said police had recovered a bullet casing from a large-caliber gun at the scene, leading investigators to believe the shootings occurred where the pair was found, but they haven’t found the weapon."

Someone who has shot themself in the head (and badly enough to be in critical condition) probably isn't in a state to hide the gun where the police can't find it.

Nah. A couple of teenagers shot in a park? That'd be big local news almost anywhere. Maybe even a national story or two (if the wires picked up the local stories). Certainly not as much attention as this has gotten, but certainly more than "one local story."

That’s to bad. Cute girls and I’m sure they are missed by their parents and family.

Hope they catch the perpetrators and deal with them severely.

I recall there was a rash of "Lovers Lane" shootings in Miami a couple of decades ago. These things happen, its probably just their bad luck that they were there.

Don't care WHO the victim was, hope they find and burn the scumbag who did it.

This is most likely Gay on Gay crime.

The likely motive is jealousy. Normal people do not kill those that simply disgust them. Murder is a passionate crime, requiring a high level of self-interest.

I disagree actually. If what you’re saying is true then it would support the liberal meme that this was a “hate” crime...but the Texas Rangers are clearly saying that there is no evidence of that.

Most likely a jealous male who lost his love to another female.

From the time and location, I would say it is more likely they went to their outdoor trysting spot...and interrupted someone’s drug deal.

Happens.

2 to 1 odds the shooter is an ex-girlfriend.

Two “high school girls” were in our local Walmart. Billings, MT mind you. Hugging and kissing while ones mother pushed a cart and shopped with the other kids who were about 6 to 10. I made a scene. Really just let them know that even if they were boy/girl the behavior was inappropriate in public and more so in front of the ones siblings.
I was thanked by other shoppers and the lady at the checkout stand.

People, “Take a stand”. Our country is dieing because we are letting it die.

Meanwhile 9 blacks murdered 9 other blacks last weekend in Chicago. Oops...doesn’t fit the narrative. But two girls who curiously fooled around sexually a 3 months are labeled “LESBIANS” and made into a national case, to help Obama.
