Australian baseball player in OK killed by 'bored' teens' (2 black, one white)
American Thinker ^ | 08/21/2013 | Rick Moran

CNN has only part of this story. Three teenage boys - 2 black and one white - apparently targeted an Austrialian citizen who was attending a local college in Oklahoma on a baseball scholarship for murder because they were "bored."

Chris Lane was walking down the road when the teens came up behind him and shot him in the back:

A random act of violence has left a promising 23-year-old college baseball player dead, a family devastated and two countries half a world apart rattled.

Christopher Lane, who was from Australia, was gunned down in Duncan, Oklahoma, while he was out jogging last week. The motive? Three teens who had nothing better to do, according to police.

"They witnessed a young man run by on the street. Chose him as the target," Police Chief Danny Ford told CNN affiliate KSWO.

Charges were filed Tuesday against the three teens. James Edwards Jr., 15, and Chancey Luna, 16, were charged as adults with felony murder in the first degree, according to Kaylee Chandler, Stephens County Court Clerk.

Michael Jones, 17, faces two charges -- use of a vehicle in the discharge of a weapon and accessory after the fact to murder in the first degree, she said.

A judge set bond at $1 million for Jones, while no bond was set for Edwards and Luna.

When police arrested the teens, one of them offered up a motive that made clear that Lane, who attended East Central University on a baseball scholarship, was chosen at random.

"He said the motive was, 'We were going to kill somebody,'" Ford told Australian radio station 3AW. "They decided all three of them were going to kill somebody."

Police say the teens shot Lane in the back in the town of about 24,000 and sped away

“Chris Lane was walking down the road when the teens came up behind him and shot him in the back”.
Or as Jackson an sharp ten wood as hunted him down an shot him like a dog.
I would say that Lane is the real Trayvon!

Does Oklahoma treat subhumans like these 3 to appropriate consequences (i.e., frying, hanging, shooting or poisoning)? Maybe all 4 would be appropriate.

Uh, NO....Sharpton and Jackson stay away from “stories” like this LIKE THE PLAGUE (that they are). They would be signing their own death warrants as political players if they tried to “justify or explain” something like this. Privately, they feel that these things wouldn’t have happened if only the horrific history of black oppression had never happened. That IS and WILL ALWAYS be their unspoken explanation.But you just KNOW these things don’t bother them very much because in their world, the perps are “also” victims.

Rick Moran of American Thinker fails to report the “white” is of mixed race and a member of a black gang. Also failed to report the white Aussie victim was “stalked” or connect this in any manner to Saint Tray or for that matter the Obama effort to incite black unrest designed to discourage Republican investigation into corruption.

Yeah, what does he see when he looks in the mirror, MLK Jr? Probably not.

Depends on the DA. The one in Tulsa is a useless tool. He’s more concerned with making Sudafed prescription only than he is in taking real criminals off the streets.

There is a descriptive term for his mama, but I don’t think I can say it.

We are all Chris Lane. Let’s start wearing baseball caps and white t-shirts to show our solidarity with Chris. How long before we would be accused of being racist?

The only person white was the victim. Michael Dewayne Jones is black. So is President Obama.

To understand current events during the ‘Post Racial’ Obama/Oprah skin color über alles era, one must learn racial math from the “progressive” school. To wit:

a.) 50% white + 50% black = black, because anything less wouldn’t be “authentic”;

b.) 50% white + 50% Hispanic = white, because anything less wouldn’t be useful to the agenda;

c.) (100% black)+(100% black)+(50% white/50% black)= 2Black/1white, using the “social justice” algorithm to calculate minimization of outrage.
