    Teens murder promising baseball player because they were bored

    http://www.nydailynews.com/sports/te...icle-1.1431445

    Prosecutors filed charges against three teenagers Tuesday after police said the boys randomly targeted an Australian baseball player as he jogged and shot him in the back, killing him, to avoid the boredom of an Oklahoma summer day.

    Christopher Lane, 22, of Melbourne, died Friday along a tree-lined road on Duncan's well-to-do north side. Two teenagers, 15- and 16-year-olds from the gritty part of the town, were charged with first-degree murder and ordered held without bond.

    A third, age 17, was accused of being an accessory after the fact and with driving a vehicle while a weapon was discharged. He said in open court "I pulled the trigger," but the judge directed him to remain quiet and said Tuesday was not the day to discuss the facts of the case.

    Police Chief Dan Ford has said the boys had the simplest of motives — overcoming a boring end to their summer vacation. Ford said in a variety of interviews that the 17-year-old had told officers that they were bored and killed Lane for "the fun of it."

    Meanwhile, family and friends on two continents mourned Lane, who gave up pursuit of an Australian football career to pursue his passion for baseball, an American pastime. His girlfriend tearfully laid a cross at a streetside memorial in Duncan, while half a world away, an impromptu memorial grew at the home plate he protected as a catcher on his youth team.

    "We just thought we'd leave it," Sarah Harper said as she visited the memorial. "This is his final spot."
    They just took someone's life, just because they were bored. It makes me angry, because life is so precious.

    Regarding the recent news of killing in GTA being the same as actual murder, if they were in fact playing GTA or some other game this may never have happened.
    But, of course they're just wrong people so something like this may have been inevitable... as obviously, normal people don't kill just because they're bored.

    That's a good silverlining.

    Won't do anything for the family/friends of the victim though to bring him back. This is senseless and unnecessary at the utmost forms of their meaning.

    It wasn't even an accident, or a mistaken gang shooting. Just some bored $#@!ers with access to a killing utility.

    That don't make no damn sense. As much as I'd like to see them tortured for days, it isn't my place to past judgement. That's just sad and uncalled for. Just hope they get theirs.

    I want to douse those teens in meat gravy and set a few Rottweilers on them ... you know ... cuz I'm bored.

    Seriously, what is wrong with people? When you get joy from killing others ... something is not right. <__<

    Ugh. I would've much rather read the guy done something to provoke them rather than just get shot in the back "just because"

    LOl two black kids kill a white guy and there no mention of racial motivation? All quiet on the "Anti-racist movement" front huh?

    If the baseball player had a gun and shot those black teens he would have been the next George Zimmerman. Believe that! After all 17 yrs old are consider a "child" and = harmless, amma right guys?

    Where's the skittles at?

    I didn't realize they were black or he was white or anything as I didn't click on the article to see their pictures, I just read the quoted portion TBW posted. So race didn't even cross my mind and it still doesn't. Despicable people are despicable people, regardless of race. Clearly there is something mentally wrong with these kids, but the story does seem rather half-baked. I don't think the whole story is being told here. If they're really that smug and saying it's because they were bored then they are truly mentally disturbed. If it was racially driven then so be it. Either way, they deserve whatever they get. This whole race thing is getting a bit nauseating. I don't see race, I just see people and the decisions they make... which we are all responsible for our actions.
