College Baseball Player Shot Dead by Bored Teens

Insanity.

*******

(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, police say? Three teens who had nothing better to do.

"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."

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.

Police caught the teens a few hours after the shooting. Thanks to security cameras from local businesses, police saw their car speeding down the street.

Nearly 10,000 miles away in Australia, Lane's family struggled to cope with the news.

"He's left his mark as we know, and you know there's not going to be any good come out of this, because it was just so senseless,"
Christopher's father, Peter Lane, said. "It's happened. It's wrong, and we're just trying and deal with it the best we can."
Lane's girlfriend Sarah Harper posted an emotional tribute on Facebook, saying "you will always be mine and in a very special and protected place in my heart."

If this was my son, I'd legitimately murder one of the youth somehow, someway.

I'd essentially end my life to avenge his. No doubt in my mind.

Dude goes for a jog and gets killed. I don't want to live on this planet anymore. Phone Post 3.0

The parents of the trio all described their children as 'good kids'.

Wonder what Al Sharpton thinks of this

Selective ignorance, he only cares about anything that furthers his agenda and lines his pockets.

So those 3 teens, profiled, stalked and murdered an innocent white man who was just out for a jog?

There should be a huge group of supporters at the ready to protest, no?

I wonder if 20 something white males will take to the Internet with "Am I Next?" signs?

Where are Trayvon Martin's parents to lead the protest? They are leading the Trayvon Martin Foundation- a foundation that in their words "increase public awareness of ALL forms of profiling, to educate youth on conflict resolution and reduce instances where confrontation between strangers turn deadly". This is a perfect opportunity for their foundation to make an impact.

Julius - Is there anyone who doesn't see the deliberate media manipulation yet?

To make blacks feel that they are the ONLY ones targeted, and only by whites?

I'm glad the media made the mistake of making this a big story today, assuming the assailants were white.

WATCH THEM TAKE THIS STORY OFF THEIR FRONT PAGES ASAP!


One of the assailants was white(the one driving the vehicle)...that being said I don't know why you're trying to make this into a race issue. The issue here is a kid lost his life, far away from his family, it's tragic....and you( and several others...some even making jokes) are trying to make this into some racially charged media conspiracy.

I agree. Now it needs "main street medias" attention. But, we know that won't happen.

half breed=white?

"He said the motive was, 'We were going to kill somebody,'" Ford told Australian radio station.




They are talking to an Aussie radio station for what reason?


Doesn't matter what nationality the victim is. Why would an "alleged" (not convicted) killer be granted rights to speak with press, let alone foreign press??


How
