Skip to comments.Three Teens, Two Of Them Black, Murder Chris Lane Because Of Boredom

First of all, this is not a post I enjoyed writing. It's never good when we hear of senseless violence like this, but it is especially bad when it happens in my home state. Second, my headline says something that the national headlines about this story do not say. In fact, Maggie's Notebook and Conservative Hideout are two of the few places on the Internet where I have read that mentions the significant fact that two of the teens that killed Chris Lane are black.
Let me be clear about this. I am not saying this shooting had anything to do with race. At this time, we do not know that, anymore than we knew the tragic shooting of Trayvon Martin was race related. The race factor, if it exists, has yet to be determined. I just felt it necessary to point out the hypocrisy of the media and the national outrage industry. Where are people like Jesse Jackson and Al Sharpton when they should be raising their voices in protest? No need to answer that question. I think we all know the answer.
I can not fathom the senselessness of this shooting. I have been bored lots of times, especially when I was growing up. During that time, I had access to my father's shotgun, his .303 British rifle, and other assorted firearms. Not once did I, or my twin brother, entertain the thought of finding someone to shoot, just to break up the boredom. We usually went fishing. If the fish weren't biting, we burned a lot of gunpowder and massacred several snakes and snapping turtles, but we never thought about killing someone for the fun of it. If our Dad thought we were too bored, he would find a pasture that had rocks that needed to be picked up, or something along those lines. Trust me, he would take our minds off the boredom.
I am placing this post in the News/Politics category, but it could just as easily go under Society. Our society leaves much to be desired when it can produce teenagers with such a callous attitude towards the life of another human being. I have already read several remarks by people who are outraged that teenagers could have such easy access to a gun and shoot Chris Lane down in cold blood. Many of those remarks have came from Australia, the country from which he came. To those people, I say this.
Oklahoma and America are sorry for your loss. However, we need to place the blame where the blame belongs. Let us not call out an object of steel, plastic, and wood and make it into something evil. Instead, we should place the blame on the real culprit. Our society has failed our young people and that failure has nothing to do with guns. Chris Lane and his family have paid the ultimate price for that failure.
No fear of God, no fear of justice, no fear of the victim.
Wholesome looking bunch.
Were the stacks of $100 bills (hundreds of thousands worth) displayed on their Facebook pages money from their drug transactions or their parents (snicker)....I mean whoever the scum was that bred them? IMHO, the parents should be put in a jail cell with them and be left to rot!
Our ‘dear leader’ is trying to keep guns out of the hands of the American populace.
We are accused of ‘profiling’.
This event makes all the guns & ammoI can possible own & extra vigilant “profiling’ even more necessary.
IF White Americans don’t have their radar antennas up by now- this gives them a reason to re-evaluate that position.
Holder and the DO”J” have told them for five years
that black on white violence and black on white crime
is no longer punished in the USA.
They murdered because they KNEW Holder and Obama
had their back.
That's pictures of a different three people than what has previously been reported. I have no idea which set of mugshots is the correct one.
I’m 59.5 years old. Situational awareness has been a part of me since I was 4 or 5.
Yes. I’ve seen several different groups too.
Two of them? I’m going to guess that number three does not identify as a cracker. He clearly is of mixed ancestry and would probably bristle at the thought of being considered a “white boy.”
And why should they worry? They know the media has no choice but to bury the racial issue and support them. Not to do so could endanger a Socialist narrative that has been carefully tendered and nurtured by generations of dedicated Leftists.
These ferals know they will face limited consequences, and given the right lawyer and a sympathetic judge, may even be out before Obama leaves office.
Providing he ever does.
RC, maybe I am going blind as well as deaf, but could you please point out to me which of these three is white? Seriously.
I really could care less if all three were white. They should never see daylight again for what they did. But I honestly cannot pick out the supposedly white kid. Must be me, so please help.
The pics I saw were different, all three were black.
the “white” boy is mixed black-white. Taking lessons from the media, lets just call them 3 black teenagers gun down white guy
Yep. I saw it during race riots in school after integration in the late '60s and early '70s (MD).
This appears to be on a much larger scale and more pervasive in a particular demographic, possibly spurred by the attitudes of the race pimps and the media.
The dangerous part will be when a different demographic decides they "have equal rights too", and becomes equally feral.
Parents, be ever vigilant.
one on the right........may be a 1/2 breed.
His Moma was on TV yesterday she be white...but appeared to be a low life,no telen what flavor the daddy be
The ‘boredom’ may just be a story they told the cops, there’s some evidence they did it in a more premeditated manner, to earn street cred as gangstas
If it was a black guy jogging, they wouldn’t have shot him.
This was a “get whitey” moment.
I bet if you tested them these two Negroes and their Mulatto friend would have IQs indicating mental retardation. They should all be swinging from the nearest tree by noon today.
Not real bills. Easily printed on a color printer or purchased online.
Far right and mixed...not white. Or about as white as Obama.
It certainly appears to me that the third person in those photos is NOT the same person pictured in the photos which were floating around yesterday.
For him to be a half breed, as you call him, and his mother is white, I’d say the dad has to be black.
Btw, I have mixed nieces and nephews (I am white, sister is married to a black man) whom I love dearly and they have been raised well and are nothing like these kids. Not all “half breeds” are bad seeds.
I blame the parents of these kids.
I’m chagrined to read comments by foreigners who think banning certain types of guns would have saved Lane’s life. I don’t know if he was killed with a rifle or a handgun. But in my state of Wisconsin there’s a lot more guns than there are citizens. However, outside of Milwaukee there’s few murders of any kind in the state. It’s just that the great majority (99.9999%) of Wisconsinites do not believe it’s a good idea to shoot someone because they’re bored.
Most likely an initiation
I notice that the first demand that Australia’s PM made after expressing his grief was for more gun control. No concern about more morals, more character, more respect for life, more respect for laws that forbid murder.
Perps could be described as Two blacks, One “colored”. Using the South African term which came from mainly the early settlement of Cape Town: When in isolation hybridization took place mixed race white father, black mother or vs vs.
