Teen Suspect In Chris Lane Shooting Posted Racist Tweets

Teen Suspect In Chris Lane Shooting Posted Racist TweetsOne of the Oklahoma teenagers accused of killing 23-year-old Australian baseball player Christopher Lane previously posted images online showing himself posing with guns and wads of cash.

‘White ppl are nasty’

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” — a line from the Chief Keef rap song, “I Don’t Like.”

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

Police in the town of Duncan have charged Edwards and Chancey Luna, 16, as adults with first degree felony murder, said Kaylee Chandler, a Stephens County court clerk. Michael Jones, their alleged 17-year-old driver, faces two charges: use of a vehicle in the discharge of a weapon and accessory after the fact to murder in the first degree. A judge set bond at $1 million for Jones and no bond for Edwards and Luna, Chandler said.


‘We were bored’

Police say it was Jones who ultimately told them, “We were bored and didn’t have anything to do, so we decided to kill somebody.”

The seemingly senseless killing has left many Americans disgusted. And for some, it triggered a political question with racial overtones in the wake of the polarizing Trayvon Martin case, in which an unarmed black teen was killed by a neighborhood watch volunteer who claimed self-defense. The acquittal of George Zimmerman, who describes himself as Hispanic, infuriated many people and triggered protests around the country, as well as remarks from President Barack Obama.

Now, some Americans are asking why this killing, in which the victim was white and the alleged killers black, has not brought reaction from the president.

Do you think the senseless shooting of Christopher Lane was fueled by racism? Are the parents of the teen suspects at fault here?

Alleged ‘Canadian Psycho’ Killer Arrested In Berlin

Luka Rocco Magnotta, the porn actor who Canadian authorities say sent the dismembered body parts of a student to Canadian politicians, has been captured in Berlin, police there said.

Magnotta was arrested in an Internet cafe on Monday, according to Germany’s Bild newspaper. German police spokesperson Stefan Rieldich said someone at the cafe recognized Magnotta and called authorities, who took him into custody without incident.

The international manhunt for Magnotta began last week, after police say the so-called “Canadian Psycho” fled to Paris. Authorities had tracked Magnotta to France through his cellphone. Witnesses then spotted him on a bus to Berlin.


Magnotta, 29, faces first-degree murder charges in Canada in connection with the killing of Jun Lin, a 33-year-old Concordia University student from China. He is also accused of videotaping the gruesome murder and posting it online. Magnotta allegedly mailed Lin’s severed body parts to Ottawa police and politicians, including Canadian Prime Minister Stephen Harper, who received a severed foot. Authorities searched Magnotta’s Montreal apartment, where they found a torso stuffed in a suitcase. Not all of the body parts have been recovered.

Magnotta promoted himself as a gay porn star. According to Interpol, he used several aliases, including Eric Newman and Vladimir Romanov.

How do you feel about the crime that Magnotta allegedly committed? Do you think he is really a psycho?
