    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. And while none is...

    Full Title: "One of the Boy 'arrested over Australian baseball's murder' is linked to string of armed robberies with his PREGNANT girlfriend" Michael Jones, 17, who was driving the car and brought in by cops repeatedly after a spate of raids, one of the investigating detectives said today. MailOnline can also reveal that James Edwards, 15, who Jones allegedly said pulled the trigger, was known to have a 'very short' temper and is 'incredibly violent'. Detective John Byers told MailOnline that investigators recognized Jones' Ford Focus from surveillance footage and that triggered their search for the killers of the Australian...

    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...

    “I’m not a bad guy. I was just so high at the time that I saw her and I asked her for a ride to the hospital,” said Blanco Garcia in the recorded interrogation. “And then, I guess, you know, I just don’t know what happened. I grabbed the knife and that’s all I remember because it was too much stuff and that’s it. I’m so sorry. I didn’t mean to.” Blanco Garcia said he was high on PCP that day and he had his baby daughter with him. “And then she drove me the wrong way, and in my...

    As two of the teens involved in the tragic shooting of Australian baseball player Chris Lane in Duncan, Okla., were charged with first-degree murder, a post at PJ Media said Tuesday one of the shooters appears to be a member of the "Crips," a predominantly black street gang. According to reports, the teens targeted Lane as he was jogging and shot him in the back out of boredom. Bryan Preston said he "looked at the Facebook and Twitter feeds of James 'Lilbuggy' Edwards," one of the boys involved in the shooting, and found posts that "suggest strong interests in rap...

    Josh Earnest, principal deputy White House press secretary, said he was not familiar with the murder of Australian jogger Chris Lane during Wednesday’s White House briefing. When asked by Fox News chief White House correspondent Ed Henry about the Chris Lane case, Earnest responded, “I’m not familiar with it, actually.” Henry explained the case in brief to Earnest looking for reaction to the Oklahoma shooting death of Lane at the hands of “bored” African-American teens who thought it would be “fun” to kill somebody. “This sounds like a pretty tragic case. I wouldn’t want to get ahead of the legal...

    It was a shocking story from March of this year: De’Marquis Elkins, 17 at the time, deliberately murdered 13-month-old Antonio Santiago in his stroller, because Antonio’s mother carried no money when Elkins and an accomplice tried to rob her. Now, that tragic story has taken a turn for the bizarre. Elkins, who is being tried with his accomplice, Dominque Lang, 15, claims that Santiago’s mother and father put out a contract on their son in order to get insurance money. On March 21st, his last day alive, little Antonio could toddle but not yet talk. His mother, Sherry West, strapped...
