    He said that there has been an escalation in major crimes committed by people under 18 in recent years in Stephens County, a rural ranching and farming community about an hour and a half outside Oklahoma City.

    Also in the jail are a teen accused of murdering his 16-year-old girlfriend and a man just over 18 accused of killing a store attendant, he said.


    Wow. Chilling.

    These kids probably played a little too much Call of Duty. But seriously this senseless killing defies all logic! There were three of them and not one of them thought "Hey maybe this isn't such a good idea." Poor guy didn't know what was coming.

    They just served notice on society that the three of them cannot be let loose among innocent people. Execute them immediately.

    Oklahoma being such a religious state, this must have been god's will. Isn't everything?

    If there is any justice, these three will all be executed in a couple years. I guess that would be god's will as well.

    Nice job. An irresponsible remark from a vicious, pompous anger case.

    Gen Z is having a very difficult time, maybe too much technology and overload?

    "the least likely generation to believe in the American Dream"


    Post 90's? http://en.wikipedia.org/wiki/Post-90s_generation

    are stereotyped as "lazy, promiscuous, confused, selfish, brain damaged and overall hopeless".

    I was glad that 2 of them will be tried as adults.
    If they were that dumb to kill some stranger, just because they were bored, they were headed for a life of crime, anyway. So, it's good to get them into prison earlier instead of later. Their parents must be so proud. But, it's a pretty safe bet that the parents are just as dumb.

    They were in the "crips" gang and trying to establish themselves. FYI crips started in Los Angeles.

    The story is unique and embarrassing because the victim was Australian.
    Just change the location to Chicago and make the victim a US citizen we wouldn't hear about this.


    He said one of the teens, while being booked into the Stephens County Jail after his arrest following the shooting, danced about and was “kind of laughing and carrying on” as if everything was a joke. - See more at: http://duncanbanner.com/local/x1253326284/Teens-charged-in-shooting-death-of-Australian#sthash.sEgatSFR.dpuf

    I'm sure when there was that school shooting in Sandy Hook CT last year, he probably came on here and made a similar remark. (NOT).

    Could have sworn one of them were white.


    One of the 3 murderers is white but what does that matter? When will we hear the cries for gun control or the cries for protests or marches from Al Sharpton or Jessie Jackson? We won't because it doesn't fit thier template so its a non issue. You just have to love how the parents all say "they were such good kids"

    Its a sign that racial prejudice is a thing of the past in Oklahoma - a gang of (what appear to be) a white, a black, and a latino - all good friends.

    The whole nation (including many whites) was in an uproar against "white people" when Trayvon was killed by a latino guy (made no sense, of course). Even Obama joined the fanfare. Now that three black guys kill a (truly) white guy in pretty much cold blood (no blurry details, no questions about self-defense), I wonder what the reaction is going to be like? People flooding NYC with signs saying "I am Chris!! We are Chris"? Doubtful. Consider that one of the killers had clear racial remarks on their twitter against "white people".

    The best thing to do would be to just leave race out no matter which situation it is, but no, society just can't do that. But it is important, in this case, to point out which stories get the "big reactions" and which don't.

    If you look at the picture, it's doubtless he has black in him -- mulatto/mixed, but yeah, pretty washed out (getting closer to Vin Diesel). Not that it matters but apparently it does to failscarf.

    So you want another three or four hour fight just like yesterday?

    You hurl these attacks on at least 50% or your posts then act butt hurt when we hurl a bit of it back to you. If you don't like to receive, don't pitch.

    I'd say closer to about 10%, and only when dealing with the Conservaposse remnants, following your dispersal after the 2012 Romney debacle.

    And naturally your "chicken or the egg" argument about which came first only works with novices and gullible guys here who aren't aware of the long history of Conservaposse abuse here. Sorry, I don't pitch, I return. icon_biggrin.gif

    Frankly, the vast majority of the time, you start it. How long you want to go at it tonite?

    "your dispersal after the 2012 Romney debacle"

    I never went anywhere. I posted just as much as before
