Sharpton and Obama Silent on Murder of White Baseball Player By Three "Bored" Black Teenagers
Three teenage boys were charged in the killing of an Australian university student in Oklahoma "for the fun of it," prosecutors said on Tuesday
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.
Police said Jones named Luna as the gunman.
Lane was out jogging during a visit to his girlfriend and her family in Duncan on Friday, when he was shot in the back, police said. He attended East Central University in Ada, Oklahoma, where he was on a baseball scholarship.
Not surprisingly, Al Sharpton and Barack Obama, who quickly opined on the George Zimmerman self-defense case against Trayvon Martin, are silent. Not only should they be publicly condemning the alleged killing, which is now an international incident, but they should be asking why the hell these teenagers were "bored" in the middle of the day. Where were their parents? Where is Sharpton when it comes to condemning young black men joining gangs, as these three did? If Obama had a son, would he look like Chris Lane?
President OBAMA appears to have a racial bias at least. We heard him call the Trevon Martin case a racial issue even though the jury said not guilty". Now we have two African Americans and another man we do not (or care) his background who seem to have killed an Australian man because they were bored. Where is the outrage for this obvious RACISM. I guess it is a one way street in the Presidents view.
