Suspect in killing of Australian Chris Lane tweeted: 'time to start taken life's'

One of the Oklahoma teenagers accused of killing 23-year-old Australian baseball player Christopher Lane previously posted images online showing himself posing with guns and wads of cash.

And three days before what police call the indiscriminate shooting, the suspect, 15-year-old James Edwards Jr., tweeted, "With my n****s when it's time to start taken life's" -- a line from the Chief Keef rap song, "I Don't Like."

Back in April, he tweeted, "90% of white ppl (people) are nasty. #HATE THEM."

Police in the town of Duncan have charged Edwards and Chancey Luna, 16, as adults with first degree felony murder, said Kaylee Chandler, a Stephens County court clerk.

Michael Jones, their alleged 17-year-old driver, faces two charges: use of a vehicle in the discharge of a weapon and accessory after the fact to murder in the first degree.

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

Police say it was Jones who ultimately told them, "We were bored and didn't have anything to do, so we decided to kill somebody."

The police affidavit lists Edwards and Chancey as black, and Jones as white.

Edwards' older sister said Thursday she finds it hard to believe her brother would ever post online messages about killing and hate.

"I know that he has a lot of Caucasian friends with whom he hangs with," Rachel Padilla told CNN's "Erin Burnett OutFront" from her home in Duncan. "The only way that I would feel that he would say anything racist about anybody is because that we have felt racism from some of the people here in the community of Stephens County."(continued)

By now everybody knows he was obviously covering for the gang that told him to do this as an "initiation."

I wonder if the cops there have the guts and fortitude to go after the gang, and arrest every member as an accessory to murder.

Big sister needs to spend less time eating and start paying attention to what her brother is doing and involved in. She needs to stop blaming the community and put the blame where it belongs.

He’s right it is. Starting with his. Take him out back and shoot him.

Look up his sister, Sdjxo on twitter. She started a freebug hashtag. She also referenced justice for Trayvon today. She also said this was part of God’s plan and people make mistakes. Worst of all, most of her tweets are about sex and music, even today.

These rappers should be held as accessories to murder.

Remember when heavy handed prosecutors were trying to hold Metal Bands responsible for teen suicides?

Yet these rappers can repeatedly chant about killing the police, kill whitey, kill, shoot, murder, etc...and the ACLU rushes to their defense.

Imploring young, impressionable wannabe gang-bangers to “kill whitey” isn’t free speech - it’s hate speech and these “rap artists” should start doing time.

WTF has happened to this country?
When did we let a bunch of animals run it and make the rules?

Fight back. Shoot back. Take our country back.

Parents need to wake up and start monitoring their children on all the social networks. Trayvon Martin was the same way. To the parents they are little angels, on facebook and twitter they are thugs.

This is going to sound off the wall but...

As crazy as gang initiations are...it is not as bad as “We were bored”. Bored just scares the heck out of me. Gang initiations scare me as well. But at least there is some kind of reasoning...no matter how flawed.

Gang initiations....

Once you start thinking over this, and the possibility of four thousand new gang members a year throughout the US (as a minimum)....this means that we are having four thousand innocent Americans killed as part of this join-up effort.

That’s one hundred times the issue of these kids shot by this teenage nutcase of last year.

We can probably go down every state’s list of mystery shootings of whites, and start to identify the vast majority connected to gang members. And if so....we’ve got a problem bigger than this NSA business.

All those Trayvon Martin supporters should be getting a good buzz right about now, they have successfully made the young blacks in America proud to just cruise on down the road looking for white targets.
This is just an overture, gonna see and hear more of this.
I may just stockpile a bunch of flashy Reeboks or Nike shoes, that way if I have a couple of SOB folks tailing me all I need to do is throw some running shoes at them, while they pounce on the coveted image style of the latest fad shoes I make an exit.

man I will be so glad when we finally can rid the country of obama, he seems to be the crux of every single calamity, pitfall and disaster across the country, I swear to god.

I completely agree with you.

But “I shot him because I was bored” rattles my cage.

What kid in the summer isn’t bored at some time? If they all decide to go on shooting sprees, we are sunk.

And you are correct..no matter what the reason, we have a huge problem.

They’re getting forced into it by the Brit and Aussie press. Note that they still don’t manage to mention all the Crips stuff on Facebook, as the foreign press has.

Yep. Supposedly if you played your Judas Priest vinyl backwards at 78 RPM it said "do it" over and over and was alleged to be a subliminal message exhorting murder or suicide...

(Who plays vinyl backwards, anyway?) Maybe it's all those skritchy sounds from messing with the records...
