Australian's slaying stirs speculation in Oklahoma
LAT ^ | August 21, 2013, 7:07 p.m. | Hailey Branson-Potts and Matt Pearce

Posted on 08/22/2013 7:48:11 AM PDT by BenLurkin

DUNCAN, Okla. — Even before his name became known worldwide — before authorities said he and two other boys killed an Australian college student because they were "bored" — the boy known as "Bug" had changed.

His sister saw it; so did family friends: His American Eagle clothes and sweet demeanor were replaced about six months ago by drooping pants, the do-rags, and a vile stream of braggadocio, sexism and racism the 15-year-old unleashed over his social media accounts.

In an Oklahoma town of about 23,000 that was 82% white, Bug, who is black, sometimes tweeted things like "90% of white ppl are nasty. #HATE THEM."

A female member of Faith Church in Duncan recalled later that he'd told her, "I can't go to your church anymore because my god is black."

...

Duncan is a town that has seen the ups and downs of oil booms, as well as the prolonged invasion of drug use that has crept through the rest of middle America. "This town is a town where it's drugs or Jesus," said Cole Hamer, 20. "You either got the drugs, or you got the churchgoers, and that's what it is."

Here come the “he was such a sweet boy! He was just getting his life together” brigade.

Actually it is “He was such a sweet boy, I can’t believe he turned into a banger.”

True. Growing up fatherless and poor creates anger. I don’t know the facts or what was in this kid’s head/heart, but I do know that race hustlers like Sharpton and many rap artists feed into this anger and direct it towards white people. It’s a recipe for disaster and the sooner society realizes that the better off we will be.

I can’t blame Obama either, but one can’t help but wonder what has happened to race relations since he was elected.

Great statement! I agree 100%. It has also become taboo to suggest that single-mother households are not ideal for raising children. Single mothers have gone from being ostracized to being placed on pedestals as models of courage and strength.

Reading this L.A. Times puff piece, it seems that the L A Times thinks that that Jesus, drugs, guns, and Facebook are the real culprits here.

Pretty good article from the LA Times??

Looks more and more like a a hate crime to me ...random but the guy was white..The only reason it gets attention is because the victim was from Australia....it was only on the net for awhile..

Hate crimes only apply to certain victims. That statement is true. That statement illustrates the injustice of hate crimes legislation.

To qualify as a hate crime, it has to be White on Black. This was Black on White. Ho harm, no foul. There were sobs heard in the courtroom, so everything is o.k.

This shit is not only going to continue, it is going to get worse until the decent people put a stop to it.

what the heck is it that happens to so many adolescents once they get to that age? middle school age? i went to elementary school with all three races mixed, so had a good group of friends of the three mixed races... we get to Junior High school, and suddenly the races and different ethnicities group together... i did not get it... i did not drop my friends who were black and Asian and “white,” to only hang around Mexican-Americans... but a lot of them dropped me and began identifying with their groups in how they spoke and dressed... no way in hell were my parents going to allow me to dress and act the way many of my grade school friends began acting and dressing...

My step-daughter just started at a very small, local college. On the second day of class the professor(?) asked why it's wrong to kill somebody. He accepted every answer but the correct one. These scum waste no time removing GOD from our kid's lives.

So, reading further into the cited article, it mentions that the punk labeled by the media a “white” actually has a black father....so, I guess Obama is ‘white’ too, huh?

This boils down to racist punk murder, the kind which Holder swore he would not prosecute if the alleged perpetrators are black.

Get a CCW, take it with you and shoot when you are the least bit afraid for your life. Remember these words, “they threatened me and started towards me - it looked like one (or more) had a gun and I was afraid for my life, so I fired X times to save my life.”

That wouldn’t have saved this young man’s life because the big ‘men’ shot him in the back, but if more people started responding with force, the next three punks that were bored might get a clue.

The photos and videos from their Facebook pages show two punks with pants around their ankles making gang signs and showing off their guns (illegally obtained of course). These were not choir boys, but gang bangers.

I was chastised on another thread about these animals and some squishy PC person objected to my characterization of people who do such things.

Amazing the race pimps who get outraged at language yet don’t share any of the outrage at the killing and destruction of our society by statistically proven large segments of a minority population.

Such human debris needs to be removed from the gene pool prior to any chance of reproduction.

I agree, as well. And this former single mother agrees with what you say about single motherhood. (A divorce I did not want is what made me the single mother of 4 sons. Difficult for me, although I did the best I could, and tragic for the children.)

I saw that in a few other articles over the past few days, but now they seem to be hiding that fact and calling him ‘white’.

All three are just as black as O’bastard!

You are correct that a gun wouldn’t have helped save the victim here - he was jogging in an “affluent” neighborhood cat 3:00 in the afternoon where these boys were “staying” according to the news account I read (Arnold Ahlert). Consider this on one of the Perp’s Facebook page:

On July 15, shortly after George Zimmerman was acquitted, Edwards tweeted “Ayeee I knocced out 5 woods since Zimmerman court!:) lol # ima keep sleepin #! #ayeeee.” “Woods” is a term used to denigrate white people.

This seems to be an admission that 5 white people were assaulted and hit by Edwards prior to the murder. Where are our Zealous Media in digging into that???

When you are out there in the jungle (it’s all jungle now), don’t wear headphones when you are out for a jog - you need to be totally aware of your surroundings at all times these days.

How many of Obama’s sons have been turned angrily against white people since Trayvon was idolized and Zimmermann demonized?

By saying “my God is black”, the kid probably was probably referring to St. Trayvon.

You are correct sir. It will get a lot worse. The problem is, the government might kill the decent people trying to put a stop to it. After all, in their eyes, being a decent person, is a hate crime.

Also the lowlife bragged about wanting to kill white people... Holder probably lacks the wit to see that comment as proof it was a hate crime... Drudge is carrying this story...
