OKLAHOMA CITY -- An Australian man attending an Oklahoma college on a baseball scholarship was shot and killed in what police described Monday as a random act of violence by three "bored" teenagers who decided to kill someone for the fun of it. Christopher Lane, 22, of Melbourne, was found dead Friday while visiting the town of Duncan, where his girlfriend and her family live. Three boys, ages 15, 16, and 17, are in custody and face a court appearance Tuesday afternoon.Duncan Police Chief Danny Ford said Monday a woman called 911 after she saw Lane stagger across the road

I am sure the media will make this a huge story. And I´m sure Obama will jump in the middle of it to condemn the killers and punish their families.

And I´m sure Sharpton, Jackson and the Hollywood elite will all march demanding justice.

I had to go all the way to the Australian press to find the identities of the perps. The reason is that they are black.

As I correctly predicted in a previous thread, the violence is considered "random" according to ap. Not bragging, though - this one was too easy.

In a total outburst of non-PC honesty, this is ONE of the reasons that blacks were enslaved. Many of them need forced moral guidelines, 24X7.

Yes, we need some reparations. How about American Blacks make some reparations to their American white victims?

Folks, let me tell you something. It´s time to start being very afraid. If this can happen in Duncan, Oklahoma --a wide spot in the road by most standards, it can happen anywhere.

This is what 0b@$trd and Eric The Red hath wrought. They --and their Henchmen [Oprah included], have been working night and day to divide this nation along every fault line known to man, but the most serious is "race."

When one of the wealthiest women on the planet can get the press she did by claiming she was discriminated against because of her race, and when Cook in Savannah, Georgia can have her life ruined because of something she said 30 years ago, what do you think is happening? What do you think the Left is fomenting?

We may be coming to a time when it´s open season on Whitey.

My heart just goes out to the family of this innocent victim. Australians are having a field day with our gun laws over this vile and horrid act of senseless insane behavior. As I told my husband today, I´m not sure I heard anyone condemning cars when that man ran down the crowd in Venice CA and killed the Italian newlywed woman. Same exact situation. Someone randomly decided to kill, and used the weapon at hand. Those boys could just as easily run the victim down as he jogged. And our gun laws ALREADY prohibit criminals from owning guns.

#6, if and when it becomes open season on "Whitey", the "non-whiteys" need to keep in mind that a large percentage of us not only shoot back, but are armed most of the time. Might actually fix quite a few of the problems that we are experiencing in is country if you think about it.

It is outrageous...and quite ominous...that both this story and a similar one in CNN fail to mention that these were, as usual, Negro boys.

Were it not for the foreign press, this crucial bit of this news story would have been suppressed.

For sure. 0b@$tard has done more for gun sales than any other president. I know we´re armored up and armed up and ammoed up in this household more than ever before.

I suspect there are more black-on-white crime than the media ever reports, but because this victim is from Australia, and Australia is making noise, and the media figure they can use the killing to push the gun ban [not gun control, Gun Ban] issue, it´s being reported.

With media 24/7 the stories of crime are more noticeable. I think that race riots of the 70´s were just as scary. I am not underplaying this tragedy, just saying this type of crime has been around.

What is hypocritical- Criminals are criminals regardless of color. Was the ball player sought out because of color? Then it is a hate crime.. Or should be as such...

NBC is surely editing the 911 call to Duncan´s PD to show that baseball player said "shooter is black" rather than "shot in back". NY Times is most likely preparing to call victim a "white Australian" while WaPo is burying story on bottom of page 17. CNN is surely hosting a forum on "Why Australian visitors are arrested more often than New Zealanders" Finallly, MSNBC´s Melissa Perry-Imnuts is having earrings made out of baseballs to show her solidarity with the 3 thugs while Al Sharpton prepares another tribute show to Trayvon.

What is frightening is that in addition to having 2% of our population comprised of violent black males, we have a news media that is actually misleading us about this criminal element. Add in fact that police departments are extremely cautious in stopping and arresting blacks for fear of profiling coupled with Obama´s "blacks can only be victims" maddnes and we have a very serious societal problem. Things are going to get much worse.

The parents of these murderous thugs seem to want to feed us nonsense...and proclaim the innocence of their nice kids...and seems to want us to believe that the Australian died from old age.

And to those in Australia who want to attack us for our 2nd amendment... note one very important thing.

These were NOT NRA members.. and certainly NOT Republicans.

But hey... let´s talk about Trayvon..another thug who they portray as just an innocent baby...instead of the thug who broke a man´s nose and smashed the man´s head on the concrete.

There is a degree of violence and pure evil in black culture today that is getting very difficult to pretend to ignore, or to explain away. These young thugs are a cancer on our society.

96% of killers in Chicago are black or Hispanic. Think about that. Only 4 out of 100 murders are by white folks.
So, is guessing that a suspicious black or Hispanic person as more likely to be a violent criminal than a suspicious white person an error? No. Ignoring this HUGE racial disparity is impossible. Pretending it is not there is stupid beyond belief, yet all of Amercan media are covering up this issue as much as they can.
To even mention that the overwhelming majority of violence is perpetrated by blacks and Hispanics is to risk being called a racist for noticing the "elephant in the room".

The SupremeCourt decisions in 1962 and 1963 prohibited prayer in public schools. Atheist Madalyn Murray O’Hair’s lawsuit led to a SupremeCourt ruling in 1963 that ended official Bible reading in public schools. In 1973, the Supreme Court decision on Roe v Wade nullified state statutes that existed from at least 1900. The counterculture of the 1960s derided traditional American values—home, family, religion.

This country is experiencing no fear of God, no regard for human life; for many, abortion and murder are of little or no concern. Fear of God is necessary for sound public morality.

The cash infusion by the federal government is actually going to help the city pay pensions, even though they´re playing a kind of shell game with the money. As for "blight removal," perhaps they could start with city hall. Reuters: Michigan officials and President Barack Obama´s Administration are discussing a plan to free up $100 million in federal money to aid Detroit´s retired city workers, the Detroit Free Press reported on Tuesday. Citing two people familiar with the talks, the newspaper said the talks were centered around federal money flowing to Michigan for blight removal. Under the plan, $100 million

Carson was born in Iowa and moved to Norfolk with his family in the 1930s. They lived in at least one other house in Norfolk before moving into to the white, wood-frame structure on 13th Street. Built in the 1920s, the house featured a small kitchen, dining room and living room on the main floor, while the second floor contained a bathroom, several bedrooms and an enclosed porch.

Former Republican National Committee Chairman Ken Mehlman advised the White House on how President Obama should announce his support for gay marriage. A Harvard classmate of Obama’s, Mehlman told the president over a White House lunch that it was politically viable to reverse his position and support gay marriage, according to a report in The New York Times. Mehlman, who managed George W. Bush’s reelection campaign and came out as gay in 2010, told Obama that the American public viewed him as an idealist willing to put politics aside, and that endorsing same-sex marriage would reinforce that image.

If you do not think the responsibilities of a mother comprise the "World´s Toughest Job," a greeting card company is hoping to change that with its new viral video. American Greetings enlisted the help of Boston-based advertising agency Mullen for its Mother´s Day campaign this year. The company started the project just before Christmas break last year. "One of our writers went home to Michigan to be with her family," recalled Jon Ruby, vice president and creative director at Mullen. "She spent quite a bit of time with her brother and sister-in-law.

Josh Romney took a quick potshot at Sen. Harry Reid this week with a Twitter post of his famous father, former Massachusetts Gov. Mitt Romney, standing in line to pay his taxes. The tweet included the text: “Hey @SenatorReid here’s a shot of @MittRomney paying taxes. Does it every year. It’s how you get your paycheck.” The back story is that Mr. Reid insisted during the last presidential campaign that Mr. Romney was a tax dodger who sent his money to offshore accounts — even when that claim was proven untrue. Mr. Reid’s exact words, as reported by The Hill:

Landrieu’s campaign described the ad in a press release as highlighting the Louisiana senator´s “efforts to stand up to the administration in order to fight for Louisiana, and protect and strengthen our energy industry that supports 300,000 high-paying jobs.” The ad features various clips of

Amazing that she of all people allowed Sandberg to restring the same old, same old, shamed, and shopworn feminist myths about women and girls and then jangle it in front of her viewing audience like something new out of the box. Indeed Kelly all but genuflected in front of this woman. Kept her on thru

On Saturday, I wrote about the standoff at Bundy Ranch. That post drew a remarkable amount of traffic, even though, as I wrote then, I had not quite decided what to make of the story. Since then, I have continued to study the facts and have drawn some conclusions. Here they are. First, it must be admitted that legally, Bundy doesn’t have a leg to stand on. The Bureau of Land Management has been charging him grazing fees since the early 1990s, which he has refused to pay. Further, BLM has issued orders limiting the area on which Bundy’s cows can

Less than a minute into his speech at the Boston marathon bombing memorial on Tuesday, Vice President Joe Biden went tragically off script and told the crowd of Boston bombing survivors that "it was worth it." After expressing how impressed he was with the tribute, he said somberly, "let me say to those ´quote survivors,´ my God, you have survived and you have soared. It was worth it. I mean this sincerely - just to hear each of you speak. You´re truly, truly inspiring." The audience sat in stunned silence until Biden declared, "I´ve never heard anything so beautiful than

Look, everyone loves Sean Connery, particularly Sean Connery. That’s why he plays Sean Connery in every movie he’s in. People love that Scottish brogue so much, they don’t mind that he has it when he plays Juan Sánchez Villa-Lobos Ramírez, an immortal Spaniard in Highlander. The guy even won an Oscar for playing an Irish cop with a Scottish accent. Talk about sexist double standards: Meryl Streep has to master foreign dialects to get her golden statuettes. Connery just has to show up on time. In economics you devalue a currency by printing too much of it. In film you

Casual marijuana use may come with some not-so-casual side effects. For the first time ever, researchers at Northwestern University have analyzed the relationship between casual use of marijuana and brain changes – and found that young adults who used cannabis just once or twice a week showed significant abnormalities in two important brain structures. The study’s findings, to be published Wednesday in the Journal of Neuroscience, are similar to those of past research linking chronic, long-term marijuana use with mental illness and changes in brain development. Dr. Hans Breiter, co-senior study author, said he was inspired to look at the effects of casual

Toddlers show racial bias when picking playmates, a study reveals. They also take account of how fairly others behave. Researchers tested the reaction of white 15-month-olds as toys were distributed. Two white adults divided the toys, one equally and the other unequally. Seventy per cent of the toddlers chose to play with the researcher who distributed the toys fairly. But in a second test, when one researcher favoured a white recipient over an Asian one, they picked the ‘fair’ researcher less often, the journal Frontiers in Psychology reports. And the babies are more likely to help those who share the same ethnicity, which is known as

Hank Aaron’s recent comments about the need for America to realize that racism is still very much alive and thriving — only now due to those who wear “neckties and starched shirts” rather than KKK hoods — has sparked an angry backlash and many fans are turning the tables, calling the baseball legend himself a racist. “Hank Aaron is a s*****g piece of [expletive] [racial slur],” one man said in an email to the Atlanta Braves’ front office, one of the teams Mr. Aaron used to play for, CBS News reported. “My old man instilled in my mind from a

Western Washington University sent a questionnaire to students asking them for advice on how the administration could succeed at making sure that in future years, “we are not as white as we are today.” The question notes that WWU’s racial make up does not perfectly reflect the nation at large, and asks students to consider strategies that other universities have used to focus on skin color as the paramount indicator of a student-applicant’s worth. The president of WWU has stated that his explicit goal is to reduce the white population on campus, according to Campus Reform. “I’ve said before and I’ll say it

Funny question in the headline, yes? But since President Obama worries more about the threat of terrorists´ improvised nuclear device going off in a major American city than anything Russia can throw at us, I was wondering if the government had deigned to share with us citizens any tips for, you know, surviving something their own intelligence points to as the likeliest unlikely Black Swan event. Well, no. And yes. No — very few people in Washington, D.C., who work for the government have any idea what they would do if a 10-kiloton nuclear device exploded at the intersection of 16th and K

When President Obama needed a preacher to fulfill the closing prayer duties at the annual White House Easter Prayer Breakfast, he turned to none other than the Episcopal Church’s first openly gay bishop — who said he was as shocked as anyone at the appointment. The Right Rev. Gene Robinson said in a tweet, accompanied by a photo of Mr. Obama behind a podium at the event: “POTUS ‘preaches’ at the Easter prayer breakfast. Then, out of the blue, asks ME to close with prayer. OMG!” Newsmax said he also emphasized that the words he chose to close the breakfast

How do you ensure that you won’t be ostracized, denounced, or fired if you are a media celebrity, captain of industry, or high public official? For some, sexist banter is certainly no problem. Stand-up comedian Bill Maher called Sarah Palin a c–t and a tw-t, but suffered no ill consequences. David Letterman joked on air that Sarah Palin’s 14-year-old daughter had had sex with Alex Rodriguez during a New York Yankees game. There was no downside to that either. President Obama tosses around “sweetie” as he wishes. No problem with that. No one believes Barack could be condescending to women.
