    Was it a thrill kill or part of a gang initiation? That would be the bushwhacking of Chris Lane, an Aussie college kid and baseball star. Lane was gunned down running along a country road near Duncan, Oklahoma, the other day. You know the story by now. Does it matter what motivated Allen Luna and James Francis Edwards, Jr., Chris Lane's accused killers, and Michael Dewayne Jones, an accessory, to off a young man with a promising future who was just going about the routine of his life on a summer's day? In one sense it doesn't matter. Whether those...

    An 88-year-old American World War II veteran has been beaten to death by two teenagers in an apparently random attack in the state of Washington. Police found Delbert Belton suffering from severe head injuries in the parking lot of a pool venue he frequented in the eastern city of Spokane. Belton, who had survived being shot in a leg during the Battle of Okinawa, was rushed to hospital but died hours later. Police claim the retired aluminium company worker was just about to enter the Eagles Lodge pool venue and play the game he loved, when two men, believed to...

    Police in Washington state are searching for two young suspects who beat a World War II veteran to death in a parking lot Wednesday night. The Spokane Police Department says in a press release officers responded to reports of an assault and found the victim in his car with serious head injuries. He later died in the hospital. Authorities on Thursday released surveillance photos of the two suspects, who they describe as African-American males between the ages of 16 and 19. Friends identified the victim as 88-year-old Delbert Belton, and say he was sitting outside a lodge for the Fraternal...

    "Ayeee I knocked out 5 woods since Zimmerman court!" young James Edwards tweeted on July 15 in the wake of George Zimmerman's acquittal for the shooting death of Trayvon Martin. Edwards's tweets surfaced after he and two of his homies were charged with killing Australian baseball player Chris Lane in Duncan, Oklahoma, last Friday. For the record, "woods" is short for peckerwoods, a derogatory term for white people. If Edwards, who is black, knocked out five woods as claimed, he would hardly be unique. As Colin Flaherty chillingly documents in his frequently updated book, White Girl Bleed A Lot, the...

    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,...

    HOUSTON (KTRK) -- More than two years after the burned body of 12-year-old Jonathan Foster was found, the woman accused of killing him is finally on trial. But the one main question in the case may never be answered. It was a gruesome discovery -- the badly burned body of a 12-year-old boy was found in a ditch in northeast Houston. The woman accused of killing Jonathan Foster is finally on trial for his murder. It's a judge, not a jury, who will decide Mona Nelson's fate. The state gave no motive in the opening statements.

    Imagine the Left's reaction if the shocking, inter-racial murder of Christopher Lane had occurred when G.W Bush was president and he had stated, "If I had a son, he'd look like Christopher," or "Christopher Lane could've been me 35 years ago."  Undoubtedly, the race-peddlers and entire grievance industry would've interpreted his comments as a subtle war declaration against Black America.  Yet, when President Obama made these statements about Trayvon Martin, the Lefties claimed that he wasn't being divisive, he was simply "keepin' it real." The racial dynamics of both Christopher Lane and Trayvon Martin's scenarios have many people focusing...

The article, published in the Journal of Medical Ethics, says newborn babies are not “actual persons” and do not have a “moral right to life”. The academics also argue that parents should be able to have their baby killed if it turns out to be disabled when it is born. You know, if you’re going to call for murdering babies, maybe you...

    A Czech fugitive has survived an attack in South Africa by assailants in a car fitted with remote-controlled guns hidden behind the rear licence plate of a car. Radovan Krejcir, a Czech fugitive who was sentenced in his country last year to 11 years in jail for tax fraud, emerged unscathed from Wednesday's episode, which peppered his bullet-proof Mercedes Benz with impact marks. The empty, parked vehicle where the weapons were hidden burst into flames after the shooting, possibly destroying evidence. "All my life is like James Bond stuff," Krejcir said with a chuckle in an interview with Eyewitness News,...

    District of Columbia prosecutors say a German man charged with killing his elderly wife is forfeiting his right to be present for his own trial by engaging in lengthy hunger strikes, and a judge would be authorized to proceed without him. Albrecht Muth is awaiting trial in the August 2011 strangulation and beating death of his 91-year-old wife Viola Drath, a fellow German expatriate and journalist, inside the couple’s Georgetown row home. His periodic bouts of starvation, and resulting physical weakness and hospital stays, have delayed court proceedings and exasperated the judge and lawyers on both sides. …
