The epidemic of senseless black on white violence continues, this time tragically claiming a visitor from Down Under:
An Australian baseball player out for a jog in an Oklahoma neighborhood was shot and killed by three “bored” teenagers who decided to kill someone for fun, police said.
Christopher Lane, who was visiting the town of Duncan, where his girlfriend and her family live, had passed a home where the boys were staying and that apparently led to him being gunned down at random, Police Chief Danny Ford said Monday. A 17-year-old in the group has given a detailed confession to police…
He said they followed the 22-year-old Lane, a student from Melbourne attending college on a baseball scholarship, in a car and shot him in the back before driving off.
Introducing the bored teenagers:
No word yet from Obama on which one would look the most like his son if he had one.
Back in Australia, left-wing former deputy prime minister Tim Fischer is exploiting the incident to demagogue about gun control, as if Lane would be less dead if the feral scum that is taking over our streets had hurled a brick instead of pulling a trigger.

News.com.au now has mug shots of the killers. Michael Jones appears to be a totally different person than in the picture above, which was originally posted on several news sites. The new Michael Jones looks white. He was charged as an accessory for driving the car, whereas the other two are up for first-degree murder. Luna allegedly pulled the trigger.
