Other than Fox News, which mentioned the possibility that one of the three alleged teen killers is connected to the Crips gang on The Five Wednesday, the mainstream media continue to miss a major angle in the murder of Australian baseball player Chris Lane. CNN headlines a story in which one of the alleged killers’ Twitter feed gets examined, but his Facebook and other social networking activity is overlooked.

One of the Oklahoma teenagers accused of killing 23-year-old Australian baseball player Christopher Lane had previously posted images online showing himself posing with guns and wads of cash.

And three days before what police call the indiscriminate shooting, the suspect, 15-year-old James Edwards Jr., tweeted, “With my n****s when it’s time to start taken life’s.”

Back in April, he tweeted, “90% of white ppl (people) are nasty. #HATE THEM.”

The first tweet cited is not original to Edwards. He is quoting rapper Chief Keef’s rap “I Don’t Like.” We reported on Edwards’ aspirations to follow Chief Keef into rap stardom, and how another rapper’s time in prison may have influenced Edwards’ behavior, on August 20. A deeper examination of Edwards’ and Luna’s social network activity turns up strong evidence that the two were either already members or or were being initiated into the Crips street and drug dealing gang. The only time CNN’s story mentions gangs is when it quotes a Townhall.com story. CNN has done no original reporting on the possibility that the murder is gang-related. It’s also odd that CNN notes the photos of guns and wads of cash, but fails to note this image of Edwards in a light blue bandana. Light blue bandanas are associated with the Crips.

CNN also missed this Edwards tweet, in which he claimed to have exacted revenge for the verdict in the George Zimmerman trial — “woods” is slang for white people.

CBS News noticed Edwards’ “taken lifes” tweet, but did not dig to find out that it’s a quote. CBS says that “it’s not clear who Edwards was referencing in the tweet,” which is incorrect. That line is a direct quote from rapper Chief Keef. The fact that it’s a quote provides evidence that Edwards was not “bored” when he and his associates allegedly shot Chris Lane in the back. They were, at least, imitating their rap heroes. They may have been undergoing an initiation into the Crips gang.

That's tragic and the blame lies right at the feet of the race baiters from Obama to Holder to Jackson and Sharpton to every piece of crap rap "artist" to Soledad O'Brien and the obnoxious a-holes at MSNBC. They opened a Pandora's box of class envy and race hatred for their twisted agendas and good innocent people's blood is being shed.

If I read the original reports correctly, the Oklahoma,a authorities were playing down the gang aspects even before the MSM was ignoring the gang ties. I don't know why the local police were saying they didn't have any gangs in that city, maybe they felt it made them look bad. In any case, you certainly won't see the national media reporting black attacks on white people, that wouldn't fit the narrative that it's only white people who are racists. In actual fact, blacks are far more racist than whites

I imagine the media would be much more outraged if the thugs were hunting actual polar bears.

This is so typical of the liberal MSM. What else would one expect from
these White House sycophants.
Four, count them, four recent outright black-on-white senseless killings
recently, and not a word from the president, or any of the race-baiters, who
were so vocal after Zimmerman's acquittal. Our culture and society continue
to decline at a rapid rate, and no thanks to the liberal MSM or in fact anyone
in Washington.
The perpetrators in all these cases were black youths.
The truth needs to be reported.

We won't hear anything of this from any news agency except Fox. If the prosecutors dare label it a hate-crime, they will be subjected to a DoJ investigation so fast they won't know what hit 'em. Why? Because in early 09, the DoJ civil rights division adopted a tacit policy that only white people are guilty of racism, never minorities.

Just like all the media stories that refer to rioting European youths and violent, destructive protests but seem to not notice that all the youths involved are Muslim, so it is with the media missing a major link in this story. They see only what they want to see and say only what fits their bias.

I don't think it is gang related - but I do think it's race related. As in it's cracker season and there's no limit.

I've been seeing on other websites the one line stories that are starting to fill several pages of black on white violence. What struck me was there are usually three of them (blacks) to one white and the white is either beat to death or shot.

"I don't know why the local police were saying they didn't have any gangs in that city,"

Because it would put them squarely in Justice's cross-hairs for an investigation that would undermine the prosecutions. Think of it as attracting unwanted attention. This is an example of how Obama's election and his nesting there for a second term has set race relations in this country back at least 40 years.

THE FACTS!


By a ratio of 3.774 to 1 blacks kill whites more often than whites kill blacks.

Though Blacks are roughly 12% of the Population, Black on Black murder accounts for 33.23% of all murders.

Add to that, the numbers show that Blacks committ 52.5 percent of all murders, Whites commit 44.3 percent of all murders and other commit 2.3 percent of all murders.

Check out the Statistics for yourself

There are some problems with the statistics. If blacks murder more white than white murder blacks, and those same blacks murder as many blacks as they do whites, we have a crime problem not a race problem. I will note in passing that the original Conservative position was that we have a crime problem. I will also note in passing that it is liberals who see this crime problem as a race problem.

The other really troubling problem with the statistics is you a talking only a murder. Add rape, for example. There are about 3 thousand black males raping white women, and about 250 white males raping black women. Add muggings and it is worse for vast majority of muggings on black muggers and white victims.

This last may be because whites have more money.

So the question of racism. The issue is what is made of these crimes and I am not advocating ignoring them. Rather the Left has racialized these crimes for lots of reason, not a small one is that these criminals - whatever their motivation - are the Left's shock troops.

No the left can keep their racism.

Well, there's the Obama connection right there - responding to Obama's "If I had a son ..." remark. If Obama had not said that, would this have happened? At least maybe not.

The media has not missed the gang connection. They have simply ignored it because it doesnt fit the narrative of American apartheid

America IS an apartheid state. As in it's the minorities that are killing and oppressing the majority.
