Christopher Lane was a intelligent 22 year old man with a bright future in front of him. An Australian, he was attending East Central University in Ada, OK on a baseball scholarship. He had gone jogging on Friday in Duncan, OK when he was singled out by three black teenagers for murder. Murder for fun.
Was this crime racially motivated? Yes it was. Because the three black teenagers, James Edwards, Chancey Luna, and Michael Jones, ages 15-17 years old respectively, decided to take him out.
They saw Christopher go by, and one of them said: ‘There’s our target,'” Ford said. “The boy who has talked to us said, ‘We were bored and didn’t have anything to do, so we decided to kill somebody.'”
As Christopher Lane was jogging along, not knowing he was being tailed and followed, one of the young men shot him in the back. While no one heard the actual shooting, witnesses saw Lane stagger across the road, and drop to his knees before collapsing on the side of the road. The car with the three black teenagers sped away from the scene.
Call it boredom or a racially motivated murder, in the end it doesn’t matter because an innocent man is dead. Where is our President? Why isn’t he out speaking out about the crime and its implications? The fact that these three black teenagers deliberately and with intent targeted a young white man speaks volumes.
Where is Jesse Jackson and Al Sharpton? They’re still getting their hoodies up for Trayvon Martin. They don’t have time to address the problems within the black community. And it doesn’t profit them much to address personal responsibility. If our leaders at the top won’t do it, why should they? No one wants to look in the mirror and hold themselves accountable. Blame it on the white man, blame it on boredom. Blame it on the rain.
This is a sad indictment on society. Right before the killings, one of the boys posted a Facebook message that read. “Bang, two drops in two hours.”
God forbid we tell the truth. That crimes of these nature are weighted the same. If this had been a group of white teenagers who decided to target a black man, the hammer would have been thrown down. Every “civil rights” leader in the country would be making their way to Oklahoma to see that justice was served. Since they seem to think that all “white” people like George Zimmerman, who just so happens to be Hispanic, are lying in wait. It’s all lies.
The worst indictment on America is that these teenagers had the audacity to say that they killed for “the fun of it.” The heartless young men wanted to watch someone suffer the agony of being shot, in the back no less, and watch him stagger before slumping to his death. They wanted to watch the life leave his body, never to return. And they had no remorse.
But where is comfort for Christopher Lane and his family? They won’t receive any comfort or peace. They’ll be tormented over this, knowing how he suffered. They won’t have the President’s backing, or other race baiters come to their aid and offer them support. They’re alone in this. This was senseless. But it wasn’t random, no matter what the officials might say. The last thing anyone wants to do is admit personal responsibility.
