An Australian baseball player out for a jog in an Oklahoma neighborhood was shot and killed last week by three "bored" teenagers who decided to kill someone for fun, police said.

Christopher Lane, who was visiting the town of Duncan where his girlfriend and her family live, had passed a home where the boys were staying and that apparently led to him being gunned down at random, Police Chief Danny Ford said Monday.
A 17-year-old in the group has given a detailed confession to police, but investigators haven't found the weapon used in last week's shooting, Ford said.
That teen and the others - ages 15 and 16 - remain in custody, and Ford said the district attorney is expected to file first-degree murder charges Tuesday. It wasn't known if the three will be charged as adults or juveniles. They are scheduled to appear in court Tuesday afternoon.
"They saw Christopher go by, and one of them said: 'There's our target,'" Ford said. "The boy who has talked to us said, 'We were bored and didn't have anything to do, so we decided to kill somebody.'"

10 bucks says they are tried as juveniles..
Jesse, Al...... where are you ?????
bored = racist hate whitey
Oh yeah, the MSM is all over themselves reporting this outrage. Right? Right? RIGHT????? Most likely they’re at the Trayvon Martin sainthood meeting.
These yutes are definitely not OK
The gallows would be too good for these animals. They should be flayed.
When you think about why, in the African- American community at least, theres a lot of pain around what happened here, I think its important to recognize that the African- American community is looking at this issue through a set of experiences and a history that doesnt go away, Barry O, July 19, 2013.
This “news” article is notable for what it excludes.
When you have 60% of black babies murdered by abortion, life has no meaning.
I guess the Prez isn’t feeling any “pain” about this one?
I am betting that Obama doesn’t go on TV and say that if he had a son he would look like Christopher Lane..of course not..for Obama to be outraged it would have to involve Lane being black, since he’s white and the thugs who brutally murdered him are Obama’s sons, you won’t hear a peep from this from the media..they might report the story, but they wont show the perps faces
I'll take that action!
This is Duncan, OK, home of Halliburton. The DA wants to try them as adults. They are far enough away from Norman to avoid the infection of Progressive Thought.
Was Lane wearing a hoodie?
A racially motivated crime that will not be reported as such because of the e races of victim and killers. Months of relentless Treyvon-Zimmermann race baiting by the MSM, with unhelpful demagoguery by the likes of Holder, Sharpton and Obama, have driven these limited, uneducated, sociopathic young people even further down the path to envy, resentment, and race hatred. With the depraved, mind-numbing, primitive beat of rap and hip-hop as omni-present background. There will be more of this.
Thesis, antithesis, synthesis: black murders, courts prosecute, communists cry racism.
Maybe the elite will stop their bull sh!t from Ben Gahzi to now this...
Shep Smith just reported the story on FOX and made no mention that the killers are black.
Surprisingly, this photo of the vicious black punks is posted on NBC News:
The synthesis is always America or God’s fault. They are going to blame the vast right wing christian conspiracy. Watch the RINOs stepping up to the plate.
So don't expect too much from the law regarding justice and you won't be disappointed.
Hmmm. The same state where a hyphenated federal judge just ruled sharia trumps the will of the voters?
The MSM is all out on protecting criticizers of Obama as racists. This is the synthesis they stick with, and they will keep with it along with Hillary coming up with the sexism synthesis.
I think they are now preparing speeches by Hillary saying men fight and are evil. This is all coming up.
The CBS article did not even show pics of the thugs, Daily Mail did because it was a non US source.
You can’t commit a hate crime or be a racist if you’re black.
All looked black then....now the guy on the right looks white.
Sentence them NOW to something medieval and barbaric.
And execution of sentence NOW.
The trial can wait.
Along with my tag line I guess that you could add that some leftist will say women are sexist because only they can have babies. Give guys a chance too!!!
“Dat be fo’ tray-von”
It’s difficult not to feel a breaking heart over the loss of this innocent and promising young life.
I don’t believe that the insanity is ever going to end.
>They should be flayed.
Nope. Strapped to a gurney and kept alive while their organs are donated to the needy. Keep them alive until all their useful organs are gone.
The Daily Mail is becoming a good source for US news.
When the left wing press was silent, I guessed the appearance of the perps. If Obama had sons.....
CNN spent several minutes on this story, showing a pic of the dead kid, but never ONCE did they mention the racial motivation, or the race of the assailants.
In fact, by repeating Small Oklahoma town, several times, they leave the viewer with the impression that the killers are WHITE....
If Obama had a bored Oklahomo teen he would look (and act) just like these ...
Two of the three are definitely inter-racial with the mother of Luna white and Jones having white features and hazel eyes. Edwards who is the baddest (but didn't shoot Lane according to police) is shown in Daily Mail photos [link at #10] with guns, gang signs and with wads of $100 bills.
They can still be flayed a little bit at a time.
I wouldn’t call that wads, I’d call it a bank vault full.
Where did that kid get the money and the gun?
From left to right in the photo at #21 above: Edwards (15 yrs.), Luna (16 yrs.) and Jones (17 yrs.). According to police (from the Australia paper), Jones, who was driving, says Luna pulled the trigger. Edwards thinks its all a big joke and danced and laughed as he was led into the police station. Though they will be charged as adults, because they are juveniles, they can not receive the death penalty.
But you may be right.........
Probably the town drug dealers, too.
