Oklahoma police say boredom led teens to kill Australian baseball player on the street for fun
Washington Post ^

Posted on 08/20/2013 5:12:00 AM PDT by Red in Blue PA

An Australian baseball player out for a jog in an Oklahoma neighborhood was shot and killed by three “bored” teenagers who decided to kill someone for fun, police said.Christopher Lane, who was visiting the town of Duncan, where his girlfriend and her family live, had passed a home where the boys were staying and that apparently led to him being gunned down at random, Police Chief Danny Ford said Monday. A 17-year-old in the group has given a detailed confession to police, but investigators haven’t found the weapon used in last week’s shooting, the chief said.

I suppose those e-v-i-l republicans stopped funding Bill Clinton's midnight basketball.

Don't they know that if the government doesn't provide bread and circuses that the "yutes" will have no recourse but to kill crackers to alleviate boredom.

Stupid conservatives.

Because there are no real consequences for their actions other than to be paraded on TV, turned into rock stars for Thug America USA, and later probably invited to the WH later for a tour by the supreme narcissist traitor in the land. If street justice were exacted, they’d be pulled out of their homes and given a new perspective on how it feels to be the victim of a knock out game.

Well, also Dear Leader practically eggs this stuff on.

What a dysfunctional society we have become.

The other day I was driving and pulled up to the light next to a car full of MS13 looking type dudes. Facial tattoos, driving five miles below the speed limit with no AC (it was 110 degrees out). I made sure to get a few cars behind them and then made sure they weren't around when I turned into my neighborhood because scenarios like this are getting more common.

From your link:

Two of the accused teens’ parents insist they were not involved in the killing.”That’s my baby boy,” said the mother of the 16-year-old accused of firing the single bullet from a handgun into the back of Mr Lane.

Of course they must be innocent. Blacks do not cause any crime. Just ask obama/holder/sharpton or watch any ADT commercial.

BTW, wonder what obama/holder/sharpton have to say about this?

Crickets.

The Australian man’s family is already blaming the crime on America’s gun laws.

Australians can go back to Australia, but we have to live with these animals that kill because they are “bored”.

WE HAVE A RIGHT TO PROTECT OURSELVES.

I’m sure these violent underage murderers didn’t get the gun legally or we would have already been told that in the press. It’s so disgusting when people make a political issue to disarm law abiding Americans out of a young man’s death. I’m glad Zimmerman was able to defend himself.

WAIT~! Wasn’t it ILLEGAL for these teenagers to have a gun???

It must not have been illegal enough.

We need to make it MORE illegal, then, for...um, everyone else.

OH! And then we should make it illegal to kill people too~!

That will stop them.

I’ll bet I can cure their boredum. Chain all three together, let them lose on the street and let all residnets of the city know there is a reward pending for anyone who can get all three. Bet those “youts” would be pretty busy working on their escape plan and have no time to be bored.

Might save a lot of money for the city not to mention the likelyhood of another crime of similar circumstances happening again. It could be called the “Bored No More” law.

I’m in Indiana.
About twenty years ago I was talking to a circuit court judge, listening to his stories about how frustrating his job was, dealing with the SSDD, day-after-day.
But the part I remember verbatim was his statement: “If you think things are bad now, wait a few years. Wait until their kids grow up.”

Well, this is the American Media we’re dealing with here. These are the same people that took a quarter-black fellow of Latin American extraction and conveniently labeled him as “white” when it fit the myth the media elites wished to push.

When will people come to their senses...this brutal murder was NOT the fault of guns!!! It was the fault of the culture of death in the society that these boys live in!!!! They were BORED and looking for something to do so they gunned down a guy jogging!! And on another note...I am sure these three teenage killers would look like Obama’s sons if he would have had sons. I’m sure he will come out and make that speech later today.

Naturally, the lack of gun control and the proliferation of guns is the centerpiece of the article and the murder is almost an afterthought. The blame is on the proliferation of guns in America - not proliferation of feral black youts in America. The ferals are (of course) excused by their parents because "That's my baby boy... he's not the type of person...".

Sure.

This is just another propaganda hit piece in the Liberal War Against Guns. It's more dancing in the blood of victims killed by an out of control segment of our population who are never blamed by the same Liberals for their heinous crimes who instead want to destroy the rights of law abiding Americans.
