Media has put a nice spin on this. Gun control.
Apparently Australia is calling for a boycott of the US. LO-phucking-L. Is that a threat or a promise? Is there a big enough ship so we can send all of them back to their penal colony?

I think how these incidents are handled by the media and government is important especially with Holder and Obama picking sides before even knowing the details.
On the heels of news that three Oklahoma teens allegedly shot and killed an Australian jogger for sport, former Florida Republican Rep. Allen West lashed out at President Obama and the “race industry crew.”“‘We were bored & decided to kill somebody.’ 3 black teens shoot white jogger.Who will POTUS identify w/this time?” West tweeted Tuesday afternoon with a link to a New York Post article on the matter.
Following the acquittal of shooter George Zimmerman for the murder of Florida teen Trayvon Martin, Obama said that Martin ”could have been me 35 years ago.” Earlier, Obama had said that if he had a son, “he’d look like Trayvon.” (RELATED: The racists Tweets of one of the accused teenagers)
West cast a wider net on Facebook.
“[S]hall we hear anything from the race industry crew, Hollywood elites, or maybe Oprah Winfrey? The issue is not about proliferation of guns in America. This is about a failing black community and the fact that its young men are desensitized to violence because a gangsta culture promotes it,” West wrote on Facebook, reiterating his Twitter question. “So who will President Obama identify with in this case?”
Chancey Allen Luna, 16, and James Francis Edwards Jr., 15, have been charged with first-degree murder in the Friday shooting death of Australian baseball player Chris Lane in Duncan, Oklahoma. Michael Dewayne Jones, 17, is being charged with the use of a vehicle in the discharge of a weapon and accessory after the fact to murder.
Jones told police that the teens killed Lane “for the fun of it” and because they “were bored and decided to kill somebody.”

Where is the outrage by all the liberals about the cowardly murder of a white man who was shot by three dark skinned African American youths. Black on White is an epidemic in this country so much for the racism Bullcrap It maybe time to see the real truth. Google it!
I should've known from the lack of an exclamation point that this wasn't going to be about the musical
Scan da bored.
One of them doesn't look black.
So there's that.
Disgusting; horrifying; what else? SAD.
Gastineau played his college football at East Oklahoma State.
Did they call it a hate crime, did they mention that more whites are killed by blacks then the other way around. This would be front page news if it was white on black. Rev not so Sharp ton and the rainbow man would be stirring up a race riot. I frankly am sick and tired of the utter stupidity of our society. Wow we could really need a leader like MLK certainly won't find one in Washington House, Senate or the President.

One of three teens charged in the 'thill kill' of an Australian college student in Oklahoma last week has previously posted racist tweets on his Twitter account, according to a report.
The Daily Caller reported that the tweets belonged to James Francis Edwards, 15. One tweet from his account reads, "90% of white ppl are nasty. #HATE THEM." Another post read, "Ayeee I knocced out 5 woods since Zimmerman court!"
The Daily Caller's report noted that 'woods' is used as a derogatory term for white people.
Edwards and friend Chancey Allen Luna, 16, were both charged with first-degree murder as adults Tuesday and are being held without bond in the town of Duncan, which is about 30 miles southwest of Oklahoma City.
Bond was set at $1 million for 17-year-old Michael Jones, who allegedly drove the vehicle carrying the other suspects. He was charged with the use of a vehicle in the discharge of a weapon and accessory to murder after the fact. Jones is considered a youthful offender but will be tried in adult court.
Jones named Luna as the gunman, police said.
Police Chief Dan Ford said the victim, Chris Lane, 22, appeared to have been chosen at random, saying in a variety of media interviews since Friday's killing that one suspect told officers that he and other boys were bored and that they followed Lane and killed him for "the fun of it."
Lane was on a baseball scholarship at East Central University in Ada, Okla., and was in Duncan, Okla., visiting his girlfriend when he was shot and killed. Some bystanders tried to perform CPR on Lane, but he was unconscious and stopped breathing before an ambulance arrived.
Lane's killing has attracted international attention about a month after George Zimmerman, a community watch organizer who fatally shot an unarmed black teen, was acquitted by a Florida jury in a racially charged case.
Rev. Jesse Jackson said in a tweet Wednesday that he was "praying for the family of Chris Lane. This senseless violence is frowned upon and the justice system must prevail."
Prosecutor Jason Hicks called the boys "thugs" in court, saying Luna was sitting in the rear seat of a car when he pulled the trigger on a .22 caliber revolver and shot Lane once in the back. Hicks said Jones was driving the vehicle and Edwards was in the passenger seat.
Edwards has had run-ins with the law previously and had been in court Friday, the day of the killing, to sign documents related to his juvenile probation.
Peter Lane, meanwhile, told Australian media there was no explanation for his son's death.
"It is heartless and to try to understand it is a short way to insanity," he said.
