Posted By:JoniTx, 8/20/2013 2:56:29 PM

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.

As a young reporter, I once expressed shock at how routinely and reflexively government officials lied to the press. A savvy newspaper vet who overheard me just smiled and told me not to take it personally. “Why shouldn’t they lie to you?” the late, great Murray Kempton asked. “They lie to themselves all the time.” His observation came back to me as I read about President Obama’s trip to Asia. He’s going, the White House says, to tell our allies face to face that America is committed more than ever to their security and prosperity. In ordinary times, the trip and

He poured more than $2 million into television ads. In one, the former Purdue basketball player challenged President Barack Obama to a three-point contest.

IRS employees who had been disciplined for tax and conduct issues were nonetheless rewarded with monetary awards or time off, according to a watchdog report released Tuesday. The report by the Treasury Inspector General for Tax Administration found that while for the most part the reward program for IRS workers complied with federal regulations, employees who had themselves failed to pay their federal taxes and had discipline problems were also rewarded. "While not prohibited, providing awards to employees who have been disciplined for failing to pay federal taxes appears to create a conflict with the IRS’s charge of ensuring the

The speaker, talking to reporters the day he was easily elected to a fifth term as Illinois Democratic Party chairman, said voting to keep the personal income tax rate at 5 percent instead of letting it fall to 3.75 percent on Jan. 1 will be a “difficult roll call.” “Every person in the legislature is going to be called upon

How often have you heard a Democrat prattle on and on about how well Barack Obama has done with the economy, given the mess he inherited? Usually, it’s some version of, “Things are getting better, but the economy the President started with was so awful, so he’s done as well as anyone could expect.”When Ronald Reagan took over from Jimmy Carter in ’81, things were actually worse economically compared to when Obama took over from George W. Bush in ’08. Consider these three important comparisons of economic indicators, then and now: - Unemployment was at 10.8% versus 7.7% - Inflation (Consumer

Holder said in a short videotaped statement that he wants to shrink the federal prison population by a modest amount while ensuring ´that those who have paid their debts have a chance to become productive citizens.´ At the center of the move is a set of old sentencing rules that punished crack-cocaine offenders with more time behind bars than users or traffickers of powder cocaine.

Former Sen. Bob Dole (R-Kan.) said a number of junior GOP senators considering a presidential run in 2016 do not yet have the experience — specifically naming Rand Paul (Ky.), Marco Rubio (Fla.) and Ted Cruz (Texas). The former 1996 GOP presidential candidate sounded particularly skeptical of Cruz in an interview this week with The Wichita Eagle. "A number of the younger members, first-termers like Rand Paul, Rubio and that extreme-right-wing guy, Ted Cruz — all running for president now. I don´t think they´ve got enough experience yet," Dole said. The 90-year-old former senator said, however, his main concern about 2016 is living

If Jeb reaches for the nomination, there will be a titanic battle between the party establishment and the Tea Party. Steve Schmidt, McCain’s strategist in 2008, insists that in the end Republicans usually settle on the most electable candidate. To get by, this Bush may be forced to trim his positions, although the cautionary tale of Romney suggests that he would have to tack artfully and carefully for the sake of the general election. Certainly he will have the resources to outlast, discredit, and disqualify his rivals.

Washington - Michelle Obama said "splurging is the key to life" if you regularly eat right and stay active. Her biggest guilty pleasure: French fries. "How would you appreciate vegetables if you never had chocolate?" she asked. "You couldn´t live without a little chocolate, a little French fries." The first lady took questions from children reporters Monday after appearing at the White House Easter Egg Roll. She told the children that if they eat right the majority of the time, then a splurge or snack is not going to hurt them. "I still splurge when I can, but that's why I try to exercise almost every day," she said.

There’s a pattern of falsifying statistics throughout the entire Census Bureau. And anyone who attempts to blow the whistle on the fraud is either retaliated against or ignored, according to two new sources who have experienced the process firsthand. As I’ve been writing for more than six months, the Census Bureau office in Philadelphia uncovered a case of fraud in 2010, did nothing about it and allowed the practice to continue. In that instance, a data collector named Julius Buckmon was faking reports that went into the nation’s all-important jobless tally and consumer-inflation survey. Because the Census Bureau’s surveys are scientific — meaning

New audio reveals an Eastern Connecticut State University professor warning that Republicans will “want things to go back — not to to 1955, but to 1855? if they win control of Congress in November. Republican victories could also put him out of a job, he cautioned. “We will live in a very, very, very different kind of country if that happens,” Professor Brent Terry told students in his Introduction to Creative Writing course, according to audio obtained by Campus Reform. “I mean, colleges will start closing up if these people have their way.” Over the course of his rant, Terry characterized conservatives

As he moves from lobbyists to the golf course, from press conferences to the tanning bed, he remains oblivious to all that is around him. He has power, incredible power, and yet to this day he has no understanding of the election that made it so. Moreover, all around him are astonishing opportunities for him to be an historic figure -- one who could and should be the man who did more than any other single person in turning back the red tide of Obama. It’s all there for Speaker of the House, and yet John Boehner manages to miss

The Citizens Commission on Benghazi, a self-selected group of former top military officers, CIA insiders and think-tankers, declared Tuesday in Washington that a seven-month review of the deadly 2012 terrorist attack has determined that it could have been prevented – if the U.S. hadn´t been helping to arm al-Qaeda militias throughout Libya a year earlier. ´The United States switched sides in the war on terror with what we did in Libya, knowingly facilitating the provision of weapons to known al-Qaeda militias and figures,´ Clare Lopez, a member of the commission and a former CIA officer, told MailOnline. She blamed the Obama administration

Global sea levels have risen by 8 inches (20cm) since 1880 and scientists predict they could rise up to 3ft (98cm) by 2100. But despite the UN’s recent threats of war, famine and extreme weather, such a dramatically different world caused by sea level rise can be hard to imagine. To help picture the future, Martin Vargic, an amateur graphic designer from Slovakia, has created a map depicting the planet with sea levels around 260ft (79m) higher than they are today. He imagines what Earth would look like if the ice sheets surrounding the North and South poles melted, releasing

It may not be tomorrow, but Senate Majority Leader Harry Reid (D-Nev.) says "something will happen" to force a Nevada rancher to obey a court order to stop grazing his cattle on federal land and pay his grazing fees. "It´s obvious that you can´t just walk away from this," Reid said in an April 18 interview with a Nevada´s KSNV-TV News 3 program “What’s Your Point?” "You can´t have a law that is -- we´re a nation of laws, not of men and women," he said. (Video) Reid noted that most cattlemen pay their taxes, pay their fees, and follow

Joan Eisenstodt didn´t have a stopwatch when she went to see an ear, nose and throat specialist recently, but she is certain the physician was not in the exam room with her for more than three or four minutes. "He looked up my nose, said it was inflamed, told me to see the nurse for a prescription and was gone," said the 66-year-old Washington, D.C., consultant, who was suffering from an acute sinus infection. When she started protesting the doctor´s choice of medication, "He just cut me off totally," she said. "I´ve never been in and out from a visit faster." These days,

Harry Reid isn’t backing down from his claim that rancher Cliven Bundy’s supporters are “domestic terrorists.” It’s astonishing rhetoric given the White House’s characterization of the mass shooting by a genuine terrorist, Major Nidal Hasan, who killed 13 Americans at the Fort Hood Army base after yelling “Allahu Akbar!” (God is great.) Rather than labeling Hasan’s actions “domestic terrorism,” the Obama administration is prosecuting him for having committed “workplace violence.” Democratic rhetoric is become ever more desperate and overheated as we approach the November midterm elections. Last week, House Minority Leader Nancy Pelosi said that GOP positions on immigration were motivated by
