Sharpton and Obama Silent on Murder of White Baseball Player By Three "Bored" Black Teenagers
Townhall.com ^ | August 21, 2013 | Katie Pavlich

Posted on 08/21/2013 6:02:23 AM PDT by Kaslin

Yesterday we heard the horrific news of Australian baseball player Chris Lane being allegedly murdered in the street after three black teenaged thugs, Chancey Allen Luna, James Francis Edwards Jr. and Michael Dewayne Jones, went on a killing joyride because they were "bored."

Three teenage boys were charged in the killing of an Australian university student in Oklahoma "for the fun of it," prosecutors said on Tuesday

Christopher Lane, of Melbourne, was found dead of a gunshot wound on Friday, according to police in Duncan, Oklahoma, about 80 miles south of Oklahoma City.

“They followed him, shot him in the back and drove off,” Duncan, Okla., police chief Danny Ford said yesterday.

“When asked why he [a 17-year-old suspect] did it, he said, ‘We were bored and decided to kill somebody.’ ”

According to police, Jones admitted that the teens decided to kill someone "for the fun of it."

Charged with first-degree murder are Chancey Allen Luna, 16, and James Francis Edwards Jr., 15. Michael Dewayne Jones, 17, who allegedly drove the vehicle carrying the other suspects, was charged with use of a vehicle in the discharge of a weapon and accessory to murder after the fact, according to the Stephens County District Attorney's office.

Police said Jones named Luna as the gunman.

Lane was out jogging during a visit to his girlfriend and her family in Duncan on Friday, when he was shot in the back, police said. He attended East Central University in Ada, Oklahoma, where he was on a baseball scholarship.

Not surprisingly, Al Sharpton and Barack Obama, who quickly opined on the George Zimmerman self-defense case against Trayvon Martin, are silent. Not only should they be publicly condemning the alleged killing, which is now an international incident, but they should be asking why the hell these teenagers were "bored" in the middle of the day. Where were their parents? Where is Sharpton when it comes to condemning young black men joining gangs, as these three did? If Obama had a son, would he look like Chris Lane?

Lane's accused killers refused bail

It's a capital crime. I don't think bail was ever a possibility.

I'm staying in a hotel these past two weeks for a business trip. The TV always starts up on the local CBS channel. I was amazed this morning when they actually had this story as one of their leads.

I know that they did this ONLY because the victim was an Australian and the Aussies are screaming bloody murder over this. If they weren't we'd hear crickets from CBS for sure.

From picture, it looks like one of them is white. Still heartbreaking and disgusting though.

I don’t mean to sound like an old school KKK member, but white people need to wake up. Modern American society endorses any form of discrimination against whites. Meanwhile a significant number of whites either hate themselves for being white, or wish they were black and do all they can to imitate the black urban culture.

In the late 60s, blacks were in a similar situation and that’s when the “black is beautiful” movement started. It worked, too well. Now black people are racist and feel entitled. I’d like to see white people collectively grow a pair and be proud of who they are, but not go so far as to be racist and feel entitled.

If the two “official” racists, Al and Jackass or Obama do make comments, they will blame the racist society and the “fact” that blacks are victims and therefore not responsible for what happened. Can never be the fault of the blacks.

...”Pray for America to Wake Up”...

America may be fearful of the “race hustlers” which now includes Oprah Winfrey with her new movie which is chocked full of lies. Why would the richest woman in the nation want to produce a movie, the consequences of which would be to foment hate against our white population? We are long past the Civil War era. Everywhere you look these days you see black people who have achieved success and acceptance way beyond the American dream. Look no further than the White House, the Attorney General and the minions who now have jobs which hold power over the rest of us. Look at the entertainment, music and sports industries. It is beyond me why these successful black people with so much influence in our culture do not turn their interest and energy to the inner cities where family culture produces these teens who want to murder to escape boredom. Why do they not begin making ads which show these black kids how to live and to work in society. I honestly do not know a racist person. I know people who fear violent people but not because of the color of their skin. A horrifying thought comes to mind as I contemplate racial politics. Do these successful black leaders want to forcefully impoverish good white people or even to find a way to exterminate them? Their hatred of us is becoming palpable.
The times are becoming very uncertain.

Yesterday all the stories referenced one as white - I’m wondering what changed. I saw the Allen West tweeted something this morning referncing “three blacks” also though. IDK.

'THRILL-KILLERS': James Francis Edwards Jr., 15, Chancey Allen Luna, 16, and Michael Dewayne Jones, 17, are seen in booking photos after their arrest in the senseless murder or an Australian college baseball player in Oklahoma.

Pic and caption from NY Post.

Katie is a good reporter but I wonder about her description of "three black teenaged thugs..." The young Mr. Jones does not look to me like he could be nobama's son under any circumstances. 'course, I could be wrong.

When will Je$$ie speak out? Senseless killing. Should be good for one rant and a march for justice at least. Oh, that's right. I forgot. Je$$ie is still in mourning over the racist treatment his thug son received from his buddy Holder.

When Obama was elected president, in the days that followed, I read a few police reports of arrests in different cities where blacks said some form of “We can do what we want, a black man is president.”

“If you don’t want to sound like and old school school KKK member then engage your brain first before you post something as ridiculous as you did.”

Translation: Waaaaah! I don’t like what you said!

Where am I wrong, genius? White kids don’t emulate the black urban culture? There isn’t a large segment of liberal whites? Did an Hispanic shoot a black and didn’t whites take the brunt of the blame? Have you seen white people scorned, with an attempt to ruin them, for saying the n word at some point in the past?

Shall I go on? Naw, I won’t. You’re just going to wet your pants and post some other snark.

Do you wonder where white guilt comes from? One source is indoctrination from our public schools. I have a grandchild in the Keller ISD, a school system touted as one of the best in the state. This grandchild told me that their teacher, a Hispanic, told the class that as a child growing up in the 50’s she was subject to racial discrimination by the “white” people. Since when do teachers relate personal stories from their childhood as part of the classroom curriculum? Try as I might I do not ever remember any of my teaches relating stories of a personal nature to the classroom.

This is an international incident, where in the hell is Obama and Kerry? We have a dead Austrailian boy murdered on the streets of this thug infested country and no public statements or apologies? This is no different than the woman in Columbia SC working in a bakery who was shot dead by three yutes last month.

No worries, since the 3 punk thugs didn't say they wanted to kill a white person. They were just "bored" and the victim just happened to be white.

So, Obama (if I had a son), Sharpton, Jackson, and Holder should have no problem. Plus, they were probably out of Skittles, watermelon juice, and cough syrup. What's a young boy to do when he runs out of his favorite choice of drank? Oh right, kill a "creepy ass cracker". Sorry, I tend to forget how it works.

"“They followed him, shot him in the back and drove off,”"

Oops, missed that and have no words for such cowardice and evil. They didn't even have the balls to look the guy in the eye when they shot him?

All 3 should be tried as adults and put on death row. No wait, they should be tried and then when found guilty, executed post haste. I personally don't give one crap if any of them find gawd during their incarceration. I want them to just die and get off my planet.

The same goes for all the gangsters in Detroit, Chicago, Philly, St. Louis, New York, Los Angeles that kill innocents every day .... need I go on? I sincerely wish they would all just kill each other. You want a conspiracy theory? - here you go: I'm starting to believe the LEO's in those worst (welfare/fatherless) neighborhoods wish they would just off each other and often times just stand down.

I say let them have at it (including the white 1% bikers, Hispanic and Asian gangs). Kill each other until there is no one left. Let's put them on a island and just watch from afar. There was a movie about that, but of course Hollywood turned it into good murdering criminals versus bad murdering criminals. Think it was called, "No Escape" with Ray Liotto.

Sorry folks, my compassion only goes so far...

This is too simple for Sharpton to explain. Sharpton will say that the facts of this case are incorrect and that it was Lane who was priofiling the three hooded teens. Lane was following them until a confrontation occurred at which time the teens employed the “stand you ground” law and killed Lane.

Only to sit around for the next 15 to 20 years on “Death Row” filing nonsensical petitions to the court. I say that immediately after their conviction they should be escorted from the courtroom by the bailiffs to the sidewalk in front of the courtroom. They should then be shot once in the belly by the bailiffs who will then guard them until they die in agony on the sidewalk; just like their victim.

Re: “Three Black Teenagers”

One of those kids, the 17 year old driving the car, looks essentially white to me.

Maybe he's bi-racial, but hard to claim he's Black.

Anyway, he's the perp who “confessed” first, and he has been charged “only” as an accessory.

My instincts say the Race Hustlers will turn this into a “White boy gets the best deal” crime.
