Doug Giles- You’ll notice that CNN’s report below fails to mention the color of the suspects as they immediately do if and when it’s a creepy ass cracker. I had to dig around several articles until I found out the race of the culprits.
CNN- A random act of violence has left a promising 22-year-old college baseball player dead, a family devastated and two countries half a world apart rattled. Christopher Lane, who’s from Australia, was gunned down in Duncan, Oklahoma, while he was out jogging last week. The motive? Three teens who had nothing better to do, according to police.
“They witnessed a young man run by on the street. Chose him as the target,” Police Chief Danny Ford told CNN affiliate KSWO. When police eventually arrested the three teens — ages 15, 16 and 17 — one of them offered up a motive that made clear that Lane, who attended East Central University on a baseball scholarship, was chosen at random.
“He said the motive was, ‘We were going to kill somebody,'” Ford told Australian radio station 3AW. “They decided all three of them were going to kill somebody.”
A brutal crime
Police say the teens shot Lane in the back in the town of about 24,000 and sped away in their car. “There were some people that saw him stagger across the road, go to a kneeling position and collapse on the side of the road,” Ford told KSWO.
Attempts to revive Lane failed.
