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:

These are just some of the hundreds of examples of violence and lawlessness in more than 80 cities around the country. There’s this book I have read, just google “White Girl Bleed a Lot” or this site http://whitegirlbleedalot.com/. It’s an epidemic of black mob violence.
