How despicable. Chief Ford said the three teens had no motive other than to ''make a name for themselves'' and were on their way to another house to murder a second, unrelated victim when they were arrested. The thin veneer of civilisation is worn away.

Well, one kids mother says he is a good boy, who isn't in a gang, so it wasn't him.

I was going to say something smarmy about the lack of interest in this story on here being because the guy wasn't a US citizen, but decided against it.

The ghettofication of America is in full swing.

They were bored and wanted to kill someone.

They have been dragged up so they should be put down.

How dare you demonize these children, who had only just come from the 7-Eleven with Skittles, and were doing nothing more than driving around?!

I wonder if Obama will say, "If I had a son, he'd look like these murderers." (Not to mention about 900 others in Obama's hometown of Chicago alone so far this year.)

It's because it was racially motivated, but the liberal media won't say much other than to chalk it up to "guns", and the general public is too afraid of being crucified by the PC Brigade if the mention black racism and black violence being central to the problem.

Don’t Ignore Race in Christopher Lane’s Murder

Quote:
Australian Christopher Lane was killed on Monday in Oklahoma by three teens, one of whom has said they were just “bored.” The right is complaining that the media is making nothing of the fact that two of the teens were black whereas Lane was white, as opposed to the massive alarm sounded in cases such as white (or white-ish) George Zimmerman killing black Trayvon Martin. And again the cry was heard that there is more “black-on-black” or “black-on-white” crime than “white-on-black,” and that young black men are in fact more of a problem than people like Zimmerman.

The numbers don’t lie: young black men do commit about 50% of the murders in the U.S. We don’t yet know whether the attack on Lane was racially motivated, nor can we know whether the three black boys who attacked a white boy on a Florida school bus recently would not have done the same to a black kid. (Critics took Al Sharpton and Jesse Jackson to task for not condemning the violence.) But hardly uncommon are cases such as the two black guys who doused a white 13-year-old with gasoline and lit him on fire, saying “You get what you deserve, white boy” (Kansas City, Mo.) or 20 black kids who beat up white Matthew Owens on his porch “for Trayvon” (Mobile, Ala.).

So, it’s just fake to pretend that the association of young black men with violence comes out of thin air. Young black men murder 14 times more than young white men. If the kinds of things I just mentioned were regularly done by whites, it’d be trumpeted as justification for being scared to death of them.

It’s not that black communities are in complete denial about these statistics — Stop the Violence events are a staple of high-crime areas. But let’s face it: black America isn’t nearly as indignant about black boys killing one another or whites as about the occasional white cop killing one black boy, even though the former wreaks much more havoc in black communities. There is no coordinated nationwide movement equivalent to the one Martin galvanized. There are no thoughtful films “exploring” black-on-black crime the way Fruitvale Station treats the death of Oscar Grant, a young black man who was killed by transit police in Oakland, Calif.

And recent example illustrates how many blacks feel about who is murdering whom. Two weeks ago, an NYPD cop killed 14-year-old Shaaliver Douse. Douse was in the process of shooting other people, and had been charged with shooting someone else in May — and yet his aunt compared him to Martin. In her mind, the main sin was the white cop’s.

Granted, it seems a lot easier to do something about the Zimmermans than the black thugs. Protest profiling and police departments institute new programs. But black thugs aren’t moved by protests, so it can seem like we’re just stuck with them.

But who’s to say what would happen if black America exerted even half of the emotional fervor and brainpower it does over cases like Martin’s to thinking about how to keep black boys from going wrong? Annette John-Hall had some wise words on this last year. What kind of self-image do we have to assume we can only change others, but not ourselves?

For the time being, though, it’s time for the media to stop proudly emblazoning the race of white cops who kill black boys while cagily describing black teens as, say, “from the grittier part of town,” as has been the case regarding Lane’s killers. The media needs to be as honest with black people as we need to be with ourselves. No group gets ahead by turning away from its real problems.

The white teen was just driving the car; the two shooters were the black teens, one of whom had been bragging on social media about how much he hated white people, and how he had knocked five of them out in retaliation for Trayvon Martin.

So this is really the fault of Democrats, for exploiting the killing of Trayvon Martin for political reasons, portraying it through propaganda as a racially-motivated killing (which there is no reason to believe it was, especially given Zimmerman's history) and potentially starting a race war.

Will the history books record the use of yellow journalism by liberals as the reason for Civil War II? The Civil War started with similar tit-for-tat, each side convinced by sensationalist media and opportunistic politicians that they had been grievously wronged and must seek vengeance.

There have been numerous instances of violent crimes against whites by blacks in the wake of the irresponsible Trayvon Martin reporting, the inflammatory actions of Al Sharpton and the NAACP and NBP, and the President himself adding fuel to the fire with his innuendo supporting the idea that it was a racially motivated crime (as opposed to a justified self-defense against more of the violence so tragically typical of young black males) and that violence against blacks is somehow a problem, when the real problem is violence by young black males.

Will we now see backlash against blacks for all this misguided "revenge" against whites (conjured up by the populist demagogues of the left for their own benefit, at the expense of men like the dead here and the young men who will spend their lives in prison for the killing)? Almost certainly.

Where will it all go? This is the "post-racial America" Obama was supposedly going to usher in? It seems to me more like somebody is trying to agitate the populace to the point of violence, so they can use the excuse of "domestic terrorism" to advance their authoritarian agenda and eliminate (perhaps even physically) that which is resisting. Unfortunately for African Americans, they are being used as a pawn, almost as cannon fodder, and will suffer more in the process than anybody else.

if white men killed as much as black men then:

there wouldn't be much blacks left
and/or
white 'feminists' would demand that all white men be castrated.

on other news, 'feminists' are attacking scientists because the 'rigid' 'manly' static applied mechanics is much easier to grasp than the 'female' 'wet' fluid dynamics....

I wish, I made that shit up.

What's important to recognize here is that this is not the fault of African Americans; they are being victimized by the left. Society needs to help them out of this mess and not attack them for it.

Indeed. The welfare culture of dependence and the victim mindset inflcited on the populace by the left have devastated the black communities in the US.

yeah, it would be so much better to let them starve.

How about kicking MTV's ass for promoting the thug life? How about stopping Sony&co from poisioning with gangsta rap and related crap? How about education instead of punishment for petty crimes?

And finally: See some guy with his trousers around his knees? shoot him. In the back of his head. On the spot.

I'd be more than happy to help, but they kind of distance themselves from receiving help. They'll only listen to the Jacksons and Sharptons.

There was a lot more stability before the welfare culture. More employment, solid families, and enough food.
