Skip to comments.Parents of 'bored' teens who 'shot Australian baseball star' weep in court...
Posted on 08/21/2013 11:35:21 PM PDT by kevcol
The parents of the slain Australian baseball player are not the only ones hurting today as the relatives of the accused teen shooters have also spoken out about their sons, clinging onto the belief that they are not murderers.
When News.au asked if Ms Luna had a message for the victims family, she said: I feel sorry for them, my heart goes out to them, it really does, but that's my baby too. My boy was a baby too.
If I could do something about it, I would.
Mr Edwards is holding onto his belief that his son was not involved.
I don't think (he was involved)...Because he's not the type of person. He likes to wrestle. He's into sports, Mr Edwards said according to Australias News9.
Im hurting the same way (as Lanes parents). I dont cry on the outside but I am crying on the inside right now, Mr Edwards said.

Here’s to many years of these three being some convict’s “bitch”.
Where is the 3rd parent?
caption: “I can’t believe my son did that, no more extra welfare. BOOOHOOOOOOOoooooooooo SOB SOB SOB CRY CRY CRY GASP
parents should be charged as accessories.
Sins of the fathers visited upon the sons.
Where is Sharpton on this?
harmless teens like Trayvon right.
The “good” son inflicted a permanent punishment on an innocent victim. Why shouldn’t he pay a permanent price in return?
Black “culture” in action. Disrespect for law. Disrespect for education. Disrespect for community. Disrespect for family. Disrespect for work. Disrespect for self. Disrespect for the lives of others.
Grabbing their Anthony Weiners - such a mature pose
“Wah. That’ll mean less way-fare payments”
I take it she’s not the 1 in 6 americans struggling with hunger.
Pretty much sounds like the DNC platform =)
Yep they sure look like BABIES. “Not my Baby”. I believe even the mother of the Boston Bomber said the same thing.
So when do babies start giving out gang hand signs, holding guys, and wear baggy pants?
I clearly remember Babies cooing, using diapers and need changing, bottle feed. These dude are way past that. Sheesh
It is bloody hard to raise a good kid in a sick culture, and there is always the chance that they aren't where they said they would be, doing what they said they would be doing.
If yours never stray from that, you are truly blessed.
If they do and you catch them before some sick crap goes down, count yourself lucky.
At some point, though, they make their own decisions, and any parent who is a decent person will be unhappy about the bad choices their children make.
Should they be put up on charges? Really?
ONLY if they actively contributed to their child's delinquency--and I'd bet that that is a minority.
Michael Jones, who faces accessory charges, had his parents and pregnant girlfriend in court to support him.
Pregnant girlfriend to raise another low life bastard.
I would say she's struggling constantly and pretty hard.
Too late, they had 15+ years of chances to raise their kids well. Now, they can kiss their boys' asses goodbye ...
I guess this bitch doesn't think Lane's parents won't have to deal with this the rest of their lives huh?
Did Allen West suggest theres a connection to the totally politicized Zimmmerman persecution ?
Where a multi racial security guard just doing his job in a gated, which means anyone can be stopped and questioned, multi-racial community of modest means. Tired of black toughs breaking into or burgularizing their property. Gets turned into an exclusive jewish white community whos white jewish (later white hispanic) security guard stalks a 10 year old black kid and murders him because hes black.
All because Obama needed some example to whip up unrest within the black community perhaps to scare off investigations into corruption and malfeasance which could lead to impeachment.The irony being creating unrest within a solid group of supporters whom hes really done nothing for .
While West hasnt drawn that connection to it directly. The media is assiduously avoiding any connection to the three suspected notorious black gang members who were stalking the Aussie visiting baseball player by back shooting some white kid on a run .
It might be the only reason were hearing about it is because it has turned into an international incident. With Austrailians demanding to know what happened.
Thanks just wondered why they were not shown in the images
which I thought was odd since they had wedding images of one of the perps mom.
Love your name by the way :)
Bored teens is a false flag to avoid the death penalty. It was a crop hit plain and simple because the deceased refused to join the crips
They aren’t ‘babies’, they are monsters.
This is a Black Rage/Zimmerman Ping List to cover the aftermath of the GZ trial and archive the RELATED incidents. Let me know. And please add "blackrage" to the keywords if appropriate. Click the link for anything you might have missed. Thank you.
Which one is “turning his life around,” which one is working on his G.E.D., and which one is an aspiring rap star?
Don’t worry. Obama’s counselor to Black America has the solution.
Yes, they should, as a matter of routine. Consider it encouragement to be sure 100% of the time or better yet, keep those kids at home, in sight, with you, where you can be actually sure, not happy-delusionally-sure, of what they’re doing.
Pretty hard for even a bad kid to get into much trouble if they’re at home under supervision like they should be.
You got your facts wrong. The deceased was just an innocent jogger. They were laying in wait for another kid to shoot (the one they wanted to join the crips) when the cops caught them.
Emotionally they will be babies until they die.
Practice makes perfect.
The key is that they know they are responsible for their actions, that those actions have consequences, and that the increase in demonstrated responsibility gains privilege while the lack of it costs.
Reaching the higher levels of trust gave our children status among their peers--a status they were not likely to risk by screwing up. We had the advantage of a tight parental network, too, and knew if our kids were behaving any way but the way they should before they even got home, just as our parents did.
If you can't leave them unsupervised then they haven't learned anything. Keep in mind, we're talking about their late teens here, an age when they are able to babysit, drive, etc., but the basics should be instilled by then.
Even with that, they will make their own decisions eventually, and the most constrained children often turn out to be the wildest.
Their age already insulates them from the death penalty, no matter that they meet multiple points of the criteria under Oklahoma law. And, just to emphasize the point made to you by another poster, your facts are wrong. They were caught because they were turned in by the father of the kid they wanted to turn to the thug life.
Yep, she’s winning alright!
They must have learned that from the picture of _res__ent Obomba fondling himself while the National Anthem was playing.
This is the “fruit” of a society which “rejects” God and the Bible.
Are you from OK and know what is going on in regards to this crime case?
Could this have been a "for Trayvon" killing? Is there any evidence of it? If so, then it went very very wrong.
There’s a lot of no good that people get up to that ends way, way before murdering a stranger.
But you know what we’ll be told, it’s not their fault, the gun made them do it.
And these people don’t seem to be very well off, how did these kids get their hands on such high end guns? Aren’t guns expensive?
These punks ‘hand signs’ certainly aren’t the result of atrophied fingers. Likewise, that one punks blue rag covering his face ain’t for no dust in the air.
Implies some shady dealings long before the killing, doesn't it?
Or is the Organizer arming the masses?
The guns had serial numbers sawed off, or so I heard. They were thought to be stolen. Now whether these kids stole them from their original owners or whether they got them from somebody else who had stolen them, I don’t know.
Yes, I live in northeast OK (Tulsa area) and this case is in Duncan in south-central OK. The local media are following it pretty well, especially in OKC. I would say the postings on FR from the Aussie media are more informative. Basic status is preliminary hearings for charges and getting them certified as adults. This will open the court proceedings considerably.
The local prosecutor has been forthright in his statements about the crime and was the one who revealed the “bored” aspect behind the crime. I’m hoping the local media kicks it up a notch in some investigative reporting about these low-lifes and the dysfunction from which they appear to have sprung. I’ve only seen mothers and other females in the court hallway footage so it appears this is another case of males acting as sperm donors only.
Love the ahole with the shirt he got from the recruiter throwing up the gang signs.
These guys will be the front line troops when the collapse comes.
These kids were “bored” so they went out and shot someone?
“Bored” is not a word you will hear around here.
When I was a kid (numerous years ago) if/when we got “bored”, we got to clean the barn or the chicken coop, split more firewood, weed the garden, etc. We never ran out of things to keep us occupied.
Perhaps the cities where these “sewer rats” are spwaned need to consider a “Youth Work Program”. Failure to get into the program, you loose your welfare checks plus other handouts, you either work or go to jail where there is a job waiting for you as you enter the door.
Yep. They'll own the big cities and, to an extent, the connecting interstate highways... for a while.
Cannot believe the one on the left is wearing a hoodie, in the OK summer heat
