One of those punks could have been Obama when he was younger, or his son if he had one.
Time to INVESTIGATE the investigators of 9/11. PROSECUTE the prosecutors. EXPOSE the cover-up.
Tim Fischer, who served as deputy prime minister under John Howard from 1996 to 1999, urged Australians not to travel to the United States. He said that such a boycott would send a message about the need for tighter gun control regulations in the United States, according to News.com.au. "I am deeply angry about this because of the callous attitude of the three teenagers (but) it's a sign of the proliferation of guns on the ground in the USA," Fischer said this week. "This is the bitter harvest and legacy of the policies of the NRA..." As deputy prime minister, Fisher led Australia's gun control reforms in the late '90s alongside Howard.
That's just inflammatory and the exact thing reasonable people railed against in the Zimmerman / Martin affair.
STFU and deal with the real issue - the inhumanity of the act.
"That's just inflammatory and the exact thing reasonable people railed against in the Zimmerman / Martin affair."
Seems to me that was precisely the point.
Just look at the differences in the responses to both cases.
Half the people on this site were tripping over themselves trying to defend Trayvon Martin and prop him up as yet another victim of big bad whitey (-Hispanic), despite the fact that he was clearly guilty, but when it comes to just about any given black-on-white crime, it suddenly turns into "who cares about color?"
The difference in attitudes over the two stories, or any two given black-on-white versus white-on-black crimes stories is more than enough to be discussion-worthy, IMO.

We can't expect those who play the race card to stop doing so if we simply insist on equal time.
The race card will be played, regardless to what anyone does, it is too powerful of a trump card for people looking to use government to control others for it to be given up. Thinking that simply ignoring or rising above it will make it disappear is not merely wishful thinking, it's dangerously delusional if the goal is eliminating so-called discrimination.
Pointing out that one side is profiting at the expense of the other based on revised history, media manipulation and false education is not a matter of equal time, it's a matter of pursuing truth.

We should certainly call out the Jesse's and Al's or their media sycophants of the world when they make, or support the making of, a racial issue out of one that is clearly not.
Are we not falling into the same trap as they when we do so?
How do we KNOW this is a racially motivated issue? Did the alleged perpetrators say they were not just bored, but angry at whitey and that's what motivated them to kill an otherwise innocent (white) young man? If so then yes - let's call them out.
Or are we pissed at Al Sharpton and Jesse Jackson for not being consistent in calling this the same thing that they called Zimmerman's acts - racially motivated, when it actually wasn't. Let them be consistent in being stupid - it doesn't mean we have to be.
"How do we KNOW this is a racially motivated issue?" Um they were black gang bangers. Please for goodness sake pull your head out of the sand and stop carrying water for these murderers.
They saw him run by there house and went after him with a car and pulled up behind him and shot him in the back of the head. Geez I don't understand people like you... I'm trying to but you sure make it hard for me to do it.
I say drop these wastes of skin into the Australian Outback with one cup of water and check on them in a month or so... just for fun. I'd send the parents as well - they are the ones who failed to raise their idiot offspring.

And all these people in pain now are still asking "why?"
I am sad and tired some more to see the same question asked over and over again, when anybody who really wants to, can know "why".

Still not sure of the color of all three criminals. Two Black one white? It doesn't matter. Just glad they caught them.
What if they were all the same color? What if all the Crime in America was done by people who were all the same color and everyone was the same color? You'd still have the same amount of crime. What would the explanation be then?
Expect more crime as the economic situation of the nation deteriorates. The police state can't stop it. People have to stop it, by improving the economic condition by whatever means necessary. But first you have to explain how the economic condition got this way in order to understand how to fix it.
Mike, first of all let me tell you that I enjoy reading your post, they are thought provoking. But there is a problem going on right now and has been going on for years, black on white crime is increasing. White on black crime is so low that the FBI started categorizing Hispanics as whites so as to even out the disparaging differences.
Every race that has come to this Country has assimilated to this country except one. Not all of course but so many that our prisons are full of them.
I think we must start asking the question why? Why? Why kill a white kid because you're bored? There are too many to name but then when a rare occurrence happens and some nit wit white murders a black kid or women, it becomes national news?
What good is liberty going to do us if half the population wants to kill us for crap that for the most part did not even happen. Case in point, Roots, it was a made up story that Alex Haley stole from a white author. How many other stories are out there like that. Now do we need to beat a dead horse? No, but when a story makes it to the top of drudge, "it's news in my book."
of posting this? Seriously. Are you trying to convince people that black people are evil? I don't get it. There's crimes being committed by different races every day. I think we all understand that the Trayvon Martin story was skewed by the media, but there's really no need for this.
You don't get it? ...Well, seeing as I posted the story, I will tell you why "I" posted it. To kill a young man for no other reason than you were bored? What kind of animal would do such a thing? A serial killer? Yes, but they don't run in groups, and this was their first kill as far as I know right now, so what gets a group of kids to hate another race so bad that when they get bored they run out and shoot down a white kid in cold blood?
Now that in itself is bad, but then I have to ask, what makes people get on a site and instead of saying, "man that was awful, I feel bad for his or her family, may he rest in peace, no instead let's call the guy who put the story up there a racist. Then let's tell his fellow members on this site that you have been watching his racist comments and you don't appreciate that "but" you understand because the person who posted it was just and "Okeydoky" kind of guy. AKA "stupid"
If these people had any character at all, he/she or they would apologize. I want anyone who feels I am a "RACIST", I'm really starting to like what that word means, one who can think for them self, to go through my account and find anything that can show a pattern of racism. You can't because I'm not.
And don't give me this nonsense, "you could be a racist and not even know it." What? Who comes up with this stuff. My integrity and character has been besmirched by those who have called me names, now they need to put up or shut up.
It's only relevant in pointing out they obvious fact that the establishment has different standards. Black on white crime isn't really discussed. But white-Hispanic "crime" is discussed and we need to have a national discussion on racist America. The same double standard can be seen when discussing anti-liberty actions via liberals and anti-liberty actions via so-called conservatives. A republican, such as Bush, stomps on the constitution it is, for the most part, pointed out as long as it gives points to liberals. When liberals shred the founding document the media ignores it or gives excuses and spew the usual BS about safety/ security.
"When the people fear their government, there is tyranny; when the government fears the people, there is liberty."
There is a very obvious double standard when it comes to mentioning the race of a criminal if the criminal happens to be black, and people are generally aware of it. I mean, everyone knows what "urban youth" is code for, but don't you dare say it aloud!
Yet whenever someone brings it up, they're almost always either branded as racists, or as someone who is just trying to stir the pot.
When it comes to black-on-white or white-on-black crimes, the white guy will almost always be branded a racist by the media/general opinion, soemtimes even when he's innocent, where the black guy will almost always be portrayed as some sort of victim of circumstance, so often that most people I know take it as a given at this point. Given that I've literally heard people, both black and white, claim that "black people can't be racist", this comes as little surprise to me.
Take the Germans; despite their several thousand year history, they will always be associated with Nazism. Every individual/group/country has some 'thing' that they'll never be able to live down, it seems.
Point is, no matter what white people in the U.S. do, they're always going to be branded as racists...and usually by other white people. /facepalm
Another point is, there are shitty people in every 'group', this is why we can't have nice things, et cetera.
I saw this story on Yahoo and knew right away that the perps must have been black since they didn't mention their race.
I don't understand all the negative comments on here. This post is socially relevant in many ways. It's only the people who pretend that there are no differences between the various peoples of this earth who can't be honest with themselves about our reality. They can't face the truth.
no mention of race and I don't even believe they mention it was a drive by.
Piers Morgan can leave this country. Didn't mention the type of gun used, which we don't know yet, but connects gangland violence to gun control, as if the gangs would comply like good little citizens. In other words, Morgan wants more killings as it would be a free for all. Wait, it's a free for all now woth 100,000 gangs and zero media coverage because when it is blacks and hispanics killing each other, its not news!

"differences between the various people"
I just knew it, black gang killers vs. white serial murderers.
In Rise of the Black Serial Killers: Documenting a Startling Trend, Justin Cottrell expels the myth that serial killers in America are predominately white. On the contrary after sifting through a myriad of newspaper records and books, he's compiled a list of murderers that is equal too or greater than the number of white serial killers from 1860 to present. Few if any have ever heard any of their names or stories, until now. Based on his findings white serial killers have been underrepresented throughout American history when compared to the percentage of the population they represent by a factor of 1.79 on average. On the other hand, black serial killers have been overrepresented 2.68 to 7 times their portion of the population, with a 150 year average of 4.18. Another startling trend he uncovered is black serial killers have never represented less than 26.83% of the number of serial killers in a given decade, despite their overall percentage of the population never exceeding 13.1%. This trend has steadily increased to the point that in our current decade they represent 88.24% of the number of serial killers apprehended since 2010, yet only account for 12.6% of the populace.
Aside from trends, this book offers reasons most people assume black serial killers don't exist--from the media prohibition on the subject, to general misunderstandings. Coupled with this is a look into the various factors that breed serial killers, with a look into why black serial killers are on the rise, while white serial killers are on the decline.
To prove his research is valid, a full list of every black serial killer is provided, along with a brief description of their crimes. In addition to this the biographies of 35 of these killers are given, with detailed information about their crimes.

This Fox News link shows Michael Jones is white.
Why is everybody saying this is three black teens killing a white person?
I did a youtube vlog about this earlier today and the Herald Sun had a picture of 3 black youths, which was later changed to the oldest one being white. However, it has also been pointed out that the token white guy was the driver and is being charged as an accessory, and also that he (Jones) was the only one in court showing any signs of remorse.
Also, the 16 year old kid Chancey Luna is a mulatto who's mother is as white as president Barry Soetoro's mother (and apparently as dumb as shovel given how clueless she was concerning her son's behavior), so we've got a nice little spectrum of delinquents that I think should be put down like rabid dogs. Publicly flogging the parents and forcing them to pay restitution to Christopher Lane's family would also be a good idea in my opinion.
.......Its used to Control You.
Fox news(yeah right) is NOT a Reliable Source for Information.
You should be More than Aware of that FACT.
I disagree with hate-crime laws in general, but doesn't it seem like "boredom" constitutes a more heinous motive than hatred? Let me explain.
As a percentage of the emotions I feel, I am far more often bored than hateful. Under the influence of anger or hatred, I can understand someone entertaining the notion of harming another person. But I cannot begin to understand killing another human being out of sheer boredom. Somehow I think it shows that these criminals are particularly evil and dangerous monsters.
See how easy that was, now we don't have to discuss anything else. We don't have to discuss underlying factors about these murders, we don't have to discuss anything else. Simply using the word racism changes the whole dynamic of the argument. Now, sorry I called you a racist, I don't really think that I was just using it as an example.
...and the establishment as a whole would be treating this incident completely different if the guy that was shot in the back was black, and the murderers were white. Anyone who doesn't recognize this reality is lying to themselves. With that said, this will end up being an issue about the 2nd Amendment as opposed to racism via these teenagers.
