On Monday, a family member asked me if I heard about a murder in Oklahoma.
He said three teens killed a guy because they were bored. Their victim was a baseball player at a university in Oklahoma.
I said I had seen the story linked somewhere but I didn't know anymore about it.
He said the story he read online Monday had few details, including the descriptions of those involved.
I said that if the killers were white or white Hispanic or something that the race-baiters could exploit and the victim was black or Hispanic, then we would know that already. Marches would be in the process of being organized. Al Sharpton and Jesse Jackson would be yapping about it on TV. We both agreed that this story would not bring Obama out to comment the way he shamelessly did with Trayvon Martin.
We didn't know the descriptions of the killers or victim, but we were certain this was not a crime involving a minority victim and white killers. No way.
As it turns out, the victim was white and the alleged murderers are black. In other words, if Obama had a son, he would look like Chancey Luna, 16, or James Edwards, 15.
From the New York Post:
Three teenage boys were charged in the killing of an Australian university student in Oklahoma "for the fun of it," prosecutors said on TuesdayThese cold-blooded murderers are animals.
Christopher Lane, of Melbourne, was found dead of a gunshot wound on Friday, according to police in Duncan, Oklahoma, about 80 miles south of Oklahoma City.
“They followed him, shot him in the back and drove off,” Duncan, Okla., police chief Danny Ford said yesterday.
“When asked why he [a 17-year-old suspect] did it, he said, ‘We were bored and decided to kill somebody.’”
According to police, Jones admitted that the teens decided to kill someone "for the fun of it."
Charged with first-degree murder are Chancey Allen Luna, 16, and James Francis Edwards Jr., 15. Michael Dewayne Jones, 17, who allegedly drove the vehicle carrying the other suspects, was charged with use of a vehicle in the discharge of a weapon and accessory to murder after the fact, according to the Stephens County District Attorney's office.
...According to police, Jones told police on Sunday that they saw Lane jogging and decided he would be their target. Police said the three followed him in their vehicle and shot Lane in the back, police said.
Police used surveillance video from area businesses to identify the vehicle, which was found later at a church parking lot with the three suspects inside after a caller reported three youths with guns who were threatening to kill someone.
The vehicle's trunk contained a shotgun with the serial numbers sanded off, but the actual weapon used in the shooting has not been found, police said.
They deserve no sympathy whatsoever.
Targeting someone for death out of boredom is beyond horrific. Murdering a random individual "for the fun of it" is positively evil.
This terrible crime should receive more attention than the Trayvon Martin case did.
There was no struggle, no issue of self-defense.
The murder of Chris Lane was an evil act.
It may have been grounded in racism.
If choosing an individual to kill "for fun" isn't a hate crime, nothing is.
Moreover, a gun didn't kill Chris Lane. Luna, allegedly, did.
Obama, say something. Say something about the brutality of these thugs.
NAACP, demand an investigation. That won't happen, those goofs are too busy fixating on a rodeo clown and destroying him. A CLOWN in a mask is an outrage. Black teens murdering a white young man "for the fun of it" isn't worth their time.
I'm sure the murder of Chris Lane won't get anywhere near the attention the rodeo clown completely idiotic story received.
I wonder. If Luna had Skittles in his pocket when he was picked up, would that make a difference? Would he seem less evil?
Not in my opinion.
These thugs are animals.
Not in my opinion.
No human being with a conscience and a heart commits murder for fun or to relieve boredom.
These thugs are evil.
. @RevJJackson Thanks for that tepid, milquetoast response. 'Frowned upon'?? Why not be REALLY harsh and call the boys 'naughty' or 'fresh'?— Jim Norton (@JimNorton) August 21, 2013
