Default Bored OKC teens kill jogger

OKLAHOMA CITY An Australian baseball player out for a jog in an Oklahoma neighborhood was shot and killed by three "bored" teenagers who decided to kill someone for fun, police said.

Christopher Lane, who was visiting the town of Duncan, where his girlfriend and her family live, had passed a home where the boys were staying and that apparently led to him being gunned down at random, Police Chief Danny Ford said Monday. A 17-year-old in the group has given a detailed confession to police, but investigators haven't found the weapon used in last week's shooting, the chief said.

That teen and the others ages 15 and 16 remain in custody, and Ford said the district attorney is expected to file first-degree murder charges Tuesday. It wasn't known if the three will be charged as adults or juveniles. They are to appear in court Tuesday afternoon.

"They saw Christopher go by, and one of them said: 'There's our target,'" Ford said. "The boy who has talked to us said, 'We were bored and didn't have anything to do, so we decided to kill somebody.'"

He said they followed the 22-year-old Lane, a student from Melbourne attending college on a baseball scholarship, in a car and shot him in the back before driving off.

Ford told the television station KOCO in Oklahoma City that one of the teens said they shot Lane for "the fun of it."

Shot him in the back the fun of it...I say all three need to fry on this one and I don't really care their juveniles..I'll even pull the switch.

Absolutely disgusting! They are plenty old enough to pay for this. All 3 deserve the maximum penalty.

If they think they are old enough to gun down innocent people because they are bored I think not only should they be tried as adults.... They deserve the maximum penalty the justice system offers. Taking a life for any reason should be justifiable. Not just "I was bored and he/she was handy"

Give them and their parents the death penalty. If you can't raise your kids to atleast respect human life then off the parents too

What a poor reflection of our society. They could have at least eaten him. Off with their heads.

Let me throw this out there for consideration. Does anyone think that shootemup video games contribute to this? These kids get wrapped up in their games going around shooting people and then think it's alright to do it for real. But when they do it for real there's no reset button.

I'm not making excuses for them but rather looking for something that's conditioned them with this mindset.

And I agree, if they don't fry, make sure they're never bored again. Hard labor for the rest of their lives. No cushy air conditioned cell, no TV, no internet. Only a sledge hammer and a shovel for them. Their lives should be a living Hell.

I totally agree with this.
when you keep "killing" people in 1st person shooters and it's all "cool" you get disconnected from the real world consequences.

If this is true, why wasn't that made apparent immediately? You know if the roles had been reversed that would have been the first thing pointed out.

That is an easy argument to make but any sane person still knows the difference and knows right and wrong besides, how many of the older generations grew up playing cowboys and indians shooting cap guns and rubber tipped arrows at actual people? How many played army? How about lazer tag and photon type games? How many grew up play fighting with wooden swords? Games of conflict and violence are as old as time. Heck, look at a pup attack a stuffed toy or playfully attack another dog or it's master, yet even that dog knows not to really attack a person or other dog without cause.

The problem isn't games or movies. The problem is entitled scum who don't give a damn about anyone but themselves.
