Christopher Lane, Australian baseball player, killed by "bored" Okla. teens, police say
CBS/ AP ^ | 20 August 2013 | Iris Carreras

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.

PICTURES: Australian baseball player fatally shot in Okla.

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.'"

Oh yeah, the MSM is all over themselves reporting this outrage. Right? Right? RIGHT????? Most likely they’re at the Trayvon Martin sainthood meeting.

“When you think about why, in the African- American community at least, there’s a lot of pain around what happened here, I think it’s important to recognize that the African- American community is looking at this issue through a set of experiences and a history that doesn’t go away,” Barry O, July 19, 2013.

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.

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.

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:

I think that it was OK where the two Black kids tortured and murdered the old World War 2 Veteran and did something to his wife. I can't recall what it was so I am not going to speculate. Thy were arrested but as far as I know nothing has happened to them. It would not surprise me to learn that they were out running the streets again.

So don't expect too much from the law regarding justice and you won't be disappointed.

You can’t commit a hate crime or be a racist if you’re black.

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.

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....

According to the Aussie paper, one of the three perps is indeed white, which might explain why CBS is at least giving this story a little coverage. Not sure which one pulled the trigger, though.

Check out the pictures of the perps and their families at the link:

Three teens charged over murder of Melbourne baseball player Chris Lane .

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.

Not sure which one pulled the trigger, though.

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.
