Skip to comments.No race motive in Australian's murder: prosecutor
Posted on 08/23/2013 7:57:03 PM PDT by Tailgunner Joe
US prosecutors handling the case of two black teenagers accused of shooting dead a white Australian baseball player said Friday there was no evidence to suggest the killing was racially-motivated.
The murder of Chris Lane, 22, in the small Oklahoma town of Duncan has triggered a race debate in America after it emerged that one of the victim's alleged killers had posted racist comments on Twitter earlier this year.
Several commentators have questioned why authorities had not pressed to have hate crime charges added to the indictment of James Edwards, 15, and Chancey Luna, 16, who are both charged with murder.
However Stephens County District Attorney Jason Hicks said while authorities were aware of the comments made by Edwards, there was not enough evidence to pursue extra charges.
"At this point, the evidence does not support the theory that Christopher Lane was targeted based upon his race or nationality," Hicks said in a statement.
"The evidence is insufficient to establish that race was the primary motive in the murder of Christopher Lane."
In separate posts on Twitter earlier this year, Edwards spoke of his "hatred" of white people.
"90% of white ppl are nasty. #HATE THEM," read one tweet.
In another post Edwards claimed to have assaulted several "woods" -- a derogatory slang term for white people -- following the acquittal of George Zimmerman for the killing of black teenager Trayvon Martin in Florida.
Hicks later reiterated to CNN that he did not believe the crime was racially motivated. He noted that Luna came from a mixed race family, and that the third teenager arrested with the duo, 17-year-old Michael Dewayne Jones, was white.

Sounds like the prosecutors are as blind as they want to be. Typical.
I would pull my hair out, if I had any.
But yeah, George Zimmerman “profiled” Thugvon and thus race was the overriding issue
What a crazy upside down country this has become
It is ONLY racially-motivated when it is white-on-black!
GIT YER HEAD STRAIGHT, BOY!
Uh, BS, I call.
I didn’t see post #2 that got pulled, but my intuition says it reflected my own sentiments.
Hate Crimes - reserved for Obama’s sons only
Whites and Asians need not apply.
You know this guy got his marching orders.
“”90% of white ppl are nasty. #HATE THEM,” read one tweet. “
Oh yes, absolutely! It’s not about race. (eyes looking up with disgust)
Well, gee, they brought a non-existent case against George Zimmerman . . so at least there’s some evidence to try these worthless little bastards for hate crime, right?
I read post #2 before it disappeared into the mod rabbit hole, it definitely read my mind.
Murdering a creepy ass cracker isn’t “racial”, it’s tribal.
Barbarians! Hang ‘em high!
I saw it, it was some homo stuff. Sucks to be you.
It never is for these types. Even if they say that is the reason for the attack, they still will not say it was racism.
After a few hundred thousand times of that happening, one would begin to think maybe they are purposely hiding the motive.
It would be great to get some real people working in the administration
I haven’t given up hope for 2016
Geeze, how can this not be an international incident. And what mist the Aussies be thinking. I mean they’re our friends
No evidence. I know some sensible tenth graders who could enlighten this representative of the American judicial system
“US prosecutors handling the case of two black teenagers accused of shooting dead a white Australian baseball player said Friday that equality before the law is an outdated custom, and that the race of the perpetrator and victim is more important than antiquated ideas like justice.”
Completely random, yeah that’s the ticket. Nothing to see here, no sir.
(Let’s hope Zimmerman has an alibi. Wasn’t he buying a shotgun?)

It was boredom. A phony scandal of sorts.
“However Stephens County District Attorney Jason Hicks said while authorities were aware of the comments made by Edwards, there was not enough evidence to pursue extra charges.”
His statement is a little different than what the headline suggests.
Oh, you mean the Chauncey Luna who had this as his banner picture on Facebook?
Chauncey Luna has a white mom. The black biological father dropped his seed and took off (shocker) and another man (looks like a "white Hispanic") helped raise the mulatto child. Despite being raised by a white mom he still grew to hate his white side and even had a "Black Power" picture on his Facebook page.
Do you know any other mulatto male whose father dropped his seed, took off, and left the child to be raised by his white mom and her white family. Only to years later have that mulatto child side far more with his black side and be adversarial to whites in general? Why does this sound familiar?
I now live in a country that is on the “no go” list of another country ... how embarrassing is that?
If not,hang all three of them....yes,the white one too.
This is clear meaning that this once great country is rotting and the rot begins in Washington DC.
Electing a horrible racist as President then him selecting a horrible racist as Attorney General could hardly cause anything else but rot.
Maybe nobama, the Clown Prince, should give them a Medal of Freedom...after they freed this guy from the Bizarro World we live in.
Why not? You figure Hillary will be better???
Poor Chris Lane must have been part of the 90% of white people that were deemed nasty by the thug.
The thing we have to remember is:
blackafricanmericanperzonssofcolor are never involved in HATE CRIMES.
Most of the time it is,
“Just a robbery that went bad”.
Murder is in itself a hate crime. Enough said. Fire up Sparky, and fry these guys. We don’t need to delay this crap, trying to prove what everybody already knows.
Rolling eyes. These mad dog killers could have put up a neon sign and a billboard about looking to murder a white man and the prosecutors would deny it was a thought crime, errr, i mean hate crime.
I have my thoughts If they include Hillary! they involve he’d being beaten again and for good.
I’ve been wrong before. This is about hope, like I said.
But Hillary would be worse. She does not like Americans and everything she touches turns to crap
Ya...right these murders and the other effects listed below had no effect on the racial episodes going on spured on by painting the target on Zimmerman’s back.
Subject:The Dual Purpose for the “Targeting” of George Zimmerman
The truth and dual purpose behind the Zimmerman persecution .. The regime and the media set the premise for the trial narrative and their presentations ignoring the setting where the incident took place..An area having a Neighborhood Watch and the person working security just doing his job. Why was this episode politicized ?...The first was to gin up the base for purposes explained herein but there was another second agenda..
If some of those so called conservative talk show hosts had interviewed guests who run such watches and had the courage to fight PC and defend Zimmerman they would have exposed the regime and the media for the frauds they are. The few who are still “milking this” by accepting black callers. Fail to cite the simple facts outlined and documented here,. and to ask them what has Obama done for you? Then dismiss them as unfortunately being used and deliberately mis-informed..
Particularly a gated neighborhood watch.When you enter one of these and start wandering around no matter if you are white, blue, red, green, or black. You can be asked your purpose for being there. You are on private property. And yes those on patrol can and do leave their vehicle and follow on foot if they lose sight of the person theyre observing..Thats the Watch Captains who is really a security guards job.http://www.freerepublic.com/focus/f-bloggers/3054721/posts
Its the second time the President of the United States has interjected himself into a confrontation between those in authority on legal grounds reasonably questioned and released someone involved in a curious activity in a patrolled area. Could this attitude be based from the idealized communist concept that there is no such thing as private property because the state (collective) owns the land ? http://www.freerepublic.com/focus/f-chat/3042477/posts and is the second purpose of selecting this episode to paint a target on Zimmerman’s back http://www.freerepublic.com/focus/f-news/3054815/posts
In both cases those representing authority were reported as white . In the second case the person working security was attacked on private rights of way while on foot who discontinued an observation and was returing to his vehicle after being suggested by the police to do so. Legally he could have approached Saint Trayvon but didnt..The hooded tall figure was allowed to continue on his way.unimpeded. But didnt. That figure turned out to be a Martin Trayvon who doubled back and attacked the neighborhood watch worker as he was returing to his vehicle. Knocked him to the ground and began beating him severly. Saint Trayvon, the attacker, was subsequently killed in a struggle over the Neighborhood Watchmans legal pistol.
In the second case both were dark skined.
The facts of this case are still being shamefully being concealed by the media to the extent they are advancing and are complicit in permitting a putrid injstice of the worst order,organized and instituted by our governent, to be committed .While denied. It began as a miscalculation when a surname of a Jewish origin shot up and lighted the heavens like a star shell in the darkest of nights. It would have been difused if the media used pictures of both side by side because they look like cousins. And the area where this occured of paycheck to paycheck struggling homeowners of all races trying to protect themselves had been reported and not some ritzy all white enclave.they portrayed..Worse yet the media is still pilling it on with ABC editing a a black jury members (remember when they were all white)t remarks to make it sound like she accused Zimmerman of murder .
The result as we have seen is that another marxist axiom (division) has been implemented which has resulted with gangs of black youths murdering happless whites and hispanics who happen into areas usually where a black population is the majority. Those media outlets who by their delberate misuse of the instrument of the 1st amendment are just as complicit in those deaths as the regime is. They had the duty but not the obligation to verify and report factually but instead quoted the reports from various mainlining socialist media sources: Some examples here all of which serve the first purpose of selecting Zimmerman as the target.

The Secondary Purpose
Using propaganda from the party that hypenated itself from God at their 2012 convention into demo-coms, and believe that all groups should be hyphenated , Afro-American, Hispanic-American, etc..Decided Zimmerman to be the egg that is to be broken,. sacrificed, so that we have an omlet..
Just like Stalin did to the Ukrainian land owners known as Kulacks whom he executed, (and used that egg example) in a soclal engineering plan to organize collectives during a Russian drought..Because as we have learned there seems to be the intention to use a collective data base to create collectives.where a utopia of uniforimity of conformity exists. As was done in Detroit, and Oakland California.only this time a poor whitey or blacky wont be able to move. http://www.freerepublic.com/focus/f-news/3053314/posts.
Just as with the energy plan where the cost of fuel used for energy and transportation and that includes raising the price of transporting gas and oil by rail, that favors a key contributer (Buffett) while the regime has been recently ridiculing the impact the completion of a pipeline, has skyrocketed those costs. Placing many on fixed or limited incomes dependent on government handouts. Resulting from this regimes socialist policies which go blameless. Now call for the sacrifice of Zimmerman who must die for another communist plan.. We all move together in centers designed and approved by comrades running the collective who (just like Obamacare arent in it) wont ever live there.
What could the first purpose be ?
What better way to cover up Bengahzi, Fast and furious, IRS, Wind and Solar panel gate, NSA spying on US, Over-riding the constittution? Dont look into who accompaines Obama on his many trips around the world at taxpayer expence ? Were they the heavy hitters or their friends holding the presidents hand isn’t that pay back at US taxpayer expence?. Isnt that an impeachable offense ??
Now if somebody even suggests impeachment. Get to your black base voters, whom you’ve done nothing for,.all worked up. Pick on some security guard who’s doing his job. Accuse him of being racist ,even though he is part black..But his last name sounds jewish.Whos doing surveilance in an mixed race area of modest means a where theres been robberies and burgalries by young blacks. Now call that surveilance stalking, the area hes patrolling owned by rich whities,and the guard of course he’s white.That person hes watching a 10 year old black kid and a saint ,not six foot two 165 pound 16 year old, who gets killed fighting over a gun. . Now paint a target on the security guards back .Aint that neat ? What better way to discourage any investigation into malfeasance and corruption by organizing the base for riots in the streets ? Think it’s too far fetched ? Think it’s not working ? Look again http://www.freerepublic.com/focus/f-news/3051558/posts
To date the political opposition known as Republican has yet to mention or comment on this example of how this regime operates. Time to ask them why ?

You are encouraged to Print up or email -pass it on....Why ? Time to expose citizens to the face the facts that they may believe whatever activity they get involved in is perfectly legitimate and legal. If it suits their purposes this regime and its adhearants will paint a target on their back. Wether it’s a black hispanic who gets turned in a “white hispanic” or union members losing their health care benefits if Obamacare gets funded.

US prosecutors LIE!
These people are liars and they are despicable.
Prosecutors and civil rights activists had to create a new category of human being, “The white-hispanic”, to spread their race hatred, but they bend over backwards to explain away what is clearly a racially-motivated crime. These appeasers make me sick!
A friendly country.
Well, this is what we’ve been hanging our heads about since election day
If two white guys had shot a black baseball player who was jogging by, then I am 100% sure it would be called a racist attack.
The killers or the prosecutors?
I expect an HBO movie, maybe called ‘A Boring Day In Duncan’.
The Aussie victim will be a ‘wood bully, while the shooters were persecuted young black fartknockers in a white Okie redneck Hell.
US prosecutors LIE!
Jason Hicks is a moron, an utter moron.
