Three teens have been accused as the killers of Australian baseball player Chris Lane. Lane, who was living in Duncan, Oklahoma, on a baseball scholarship, was gunned down Friday afternoon in a drive-by shooting. One of the three has reportedly confessed to the random murder.

The Oklahoma teens who face first-degree murder charges have been named as Chancey Luna, James Edwards and Michael Jones.

But their parents yesterday protested their innocence.

Jennifer Luna, whose son is suspected of firing the fatal shot, claimed her son was at home saying: “My son is not that way. My son is a good kid.”

The three teens now say that they killed Lane at random because they were “bored.”

It comes as Duncan Police Chief Danny Ford said he had secured the confession of the 17-year-old who summoned investigators to his jail cell and claimed he and the younger boys were bored “so they decided to kill somebody”.

“He said he was the driver of the car,” Chief Ford said.

“They saw Christopher jog by the house they were at, they chose him to be the target, they got in the car, drove up behind him and shot him in the back.

“He said the 16-year-old fired the shot.”

The 16 year old would be Chancey Luna, who still has the endorsement of his mom, above.

The 15 year old is James Edwards. On August 15, a day before the shooting, the “bored” teen apparently posted a terse status update on Facebook, where he goes by the name “Lilbuggy” but his Facebook address is “blackcoon44.”

He also posted this ambiguous update, which could be taken to mean shots or music recordings. Evidently the latter.

The statistics on the page place this James Edwards in Duncan, OK.

According to other posts on the page, Edwards is an aspiring rapper.

And he’s not a fan of “snitches.”

This article sheds some light on that post. Briefly, an affiliate of Chief Keef who goes by the name Lil Durk spent time in prison on gun charges, but sees that time as positive for his music career.

Ever the optimist, Durk was able to find some silver lining surrounding his circumstance. “By me going to jail, that was publicity, too. It was all in newspapers. So at the same time, it never kinda stopped.”

So were these kids in Duncan really bored when they killed Chris Lane, or were they building their resumes, using criminals like Lil Durk as their template?

Here is his Twitter feed. On August 13 he tweeted this.

That’s a Chief Keef lyric, as is the previous Facebook update. They’re from the same song, “I Don’t Like.” Edwards also posted on Facebook about a puppy that he got, which he named Sosa. That’s also from the same Chief Keef rap.

Sosa bitch, yeah, I done gon’ hype
Pistol toting and I’m shooting on sight
A snitch nigga, that’s that shit I don’t like
Your bitch want do the team bet she won’t fight
Bitch, we GBE — fuck who don’t like
And we ain’t gon’ fight, our guns gon’ fight

On August 9th, Edwards changed his Facebook profile picture to this.

Google “blue bandana gang” and you’ll get thousands of hits. Light blue bandanas are typically associated with the Crips gang and its offshoots. The Crips are active in Oklahoma — four Crips were indicted on drug trafficking charges in Tulsa in June of this year.

Many are already blaming the gun that the teens allegedly used to kill Chris Lane, including members of the Australian government. Guns are inanimate objects.

The “gun culture” didn’t kill Chris Lane, but the rap and gang culture may have played a prominent role.

The victim, Chris Lane, was white. Race may also have been a factor.

A friend of mine has a lady friend. Pretty, blond. She recently traveled to Boston area and was gang-raped by blacks there. She is messed up in the head now and afraid to go anywhere. (She attempted suicide in the psych ward, too.) She went with her boyfriend, also white. They beat him so badly he was in a coma and died a week later of his injuries. I can't find anything about this story anywhere. Not in the local Boston news, much less any national news.

Rising black-on-white violence is grotesquely undereported.

Mat Drudge has class to feature this story and help destroy the asinine "Trayvon" insanity which has put everybody into a false dream-world that ignores reality.

Try the non-stop racial hate speech of the Dem Party as a source. Contrary to the Zimmerman myth, rhetorically at least, it's open season on whites. Words eventually kill. Just ask 6 million Jews.

Were Chris Lane's killers really bored? We think not, as the evidence seems
to strongly suggest gang inititiation, combined with the sickness of rap music.
BTW.....it is alleged that Luna shot Chris Lane in the back three times!
We are glad that they are to be tried as adults. In the coming months and
years as they serve long sentences in prison, they can ruminate on what
being bored is really all about.

These kids should get adult punishment instead of a slap on the wrist and a few years in a juvenile facility. Deprive them of their freedom for awhile and make them go to school....instead of making excuses. start demanding more of them. For a number of years, these kids have been handled with kid gloves....throw them away and start socking them with the truth.

When we were kids and whined to mom about being 'bored', mom would say -"an intelligent mind is never bored...now go read a book, do or go learn something useful..." My, how the world has changed...

These kids may not know how to read. They are probably without any inner resources

You folks making statements that these little thugs will get what they deserve in prison could not be dumber.

these punks are now heroes of their communities and their gangland brothers currently in prison. When the two black thugs get to prison they will be heroes. Nothing will happen to them.

The only ones who are held accountable to black justice or any justice in prison are child molesters and the effeminate blacks.

To continue to make your dumb comments shows you have no idea of prison or prison life.

Again, two of these boys are now heroes and the white/black wigger is the only one who needs to watch out and not bend over to pick up the soap because he has basically snitched on his homies..

Taz2293 is 100% correct. I am a former correctional officer and can vouch for this.

A predator on the street remains a predator behind bars. The victims of prison rape and brutality are much more commonly the nonviolent offenders. Someone in prison for passing bad checks or multiple DUIs will be the target, not someone in for murder.

Jesse Jackson said they were bored and just killed him for the fun of it. He would know what they were thinking because he can read minds from thousands of miles away. He has the same answer for every problem in the black community, more resources (read money). All the blacks beating, robbing, killing and raping whites are just bored. Oh yes, it is all my fault for not giving them enough of my money because i am selfish and greedy.

I've been attacked simply for being a white guy. It took me years to calm down enough that I was able to stop calling all blacks, f'n n-words everyday for years on end. I couldn't even stand to see them on tv and got in fights over that with white guys.

It's really too bad that the victims of all of these violent, heinous crimes commited by these evil, insane maniacs (mostly young black males) aren't Far Left Liberals, who hate guns and love diversity and multiculturalism and are all guilty white Liberal/Progressive Obama Zombies. Would serve them right!!

In my opinion, this is definitely a hate crime. I wish the President would stand up now in front of the American people since he's half white, and utter the words "If I had a son, he would look like Chris Lane".
