Chris Lane, College Baseball Player, Murdered "For Fun" By Oklahoma Teens

Christopher Lane, a baseball player for East Central University in Oklahoma, was murdered last Friday in a completely random act by three area teens.

Three boys, ages 15, 16 and 17 are in custody for the slaying.

According to the deeply disturbing AP report, they simply decided to kill the 22-year-old for the heck of it. Duncan, Okla., police chief Danny Ford said:

"They saw [Lane] go by, and one of them said: 'There's our target.'"

He went on, chillingly, adding, "The boy who talked to us said: 'We were bored and didn't have anything to do, so we decided to go kill somebody."

"They followed him in the car to that area, shot him in the back and drove off," Ford said, adding that they decided to murder Lane just for "the fun of it."

Lane was visiting the town Duncan, where his girlfriend and her family live.

He jogged passed a home where three teenage boys were staying and that apparently is all that led to him being gunned down and slain at random.

Two of the three boys have previously been in trouble with the law.

Lane was a resident of Australia and had just returned to Oklahoma for the school year last week. Now he is dad, a victim of the most senseless violence.

The local D.A.'s office is expected to file first-degree murder charges Tuesday. It's not yet known if the three individuals will be tried as juveniles or adults.

Some things really will shake one's faith in humanity. R.I.P.

I love how the parents of these three juvenille delinquents all say "my kid would never murder anyone" even as the one kid has confessed and their car was captured on video. Amazing how, in the black community, people can be so blind to the obvious. Black culture needs to change otherwise the USA will continue to look like an out of control nation.

Those 3 kids need to get the electric chair. No family should have to endure what Chris Lane's family is going through. Those kids all had juvenile records. They will never change.

are you serious??
remind me again why these stupid idiots should have any rights again? I don't think Martin Luther king jr. and all these other people fighting for black rights, put their lives in danger by trying to make a difference so these animals could behave like this. so that they can go and murder and act like freaking primative Neanderthals and act "ratchet" with their twerking and ghettoness. then they play the victim card when someone tries to call out their actions and they cry saying were being racists. don't give them like in jail why spare them when they didn't spare a young man who was actually going to school and making something of himself. give them the death penalty. they killed him for fun?? are you kidding me!? get rid of these pieces of trash wasting up space.
