    its a legitimate point. Jews didn't riot when OJ walked for killing Ron Goldman. whites aren't going to riot over this or the fact that there are far more cases of blacks killing illegally whites than the other way around

    where's those race pandering pimps like Al Sharpton on this killing?

    I don't support capital punishment except for acts of mass murder or other extreme depravity. Not sure whether this case would qualify. If my previous statement needs to be amended to account for that (and also situations like, for example, self defense), consider it amended.

    that they might get 60 years of prison bitch status? that seems to be the consequences they didn't take into account.

    The man is dead. he did nothing to deserve it-that's where the inquiry really should start and end.

    Just checking. I believe you missed a few amendments but so be it.

    DUNCAN, Okla. (AP)[/B] — With the simplest of motives — breaking up the boredom of an Oklahoma summer — three teenagers followed an Australian collegiate baseball player who was attending school in the U.S. and killed him with a shot to the back for “the fun of it,” prosecutors said Tuesday as they charged two of the teens with murder.

    While not normally a proponent of the death penalty there are exceptions.
    These young men should face an expedited trial and then promptly hanged by the neck until dead .. just "for the fun of it"

    Well, maybe I could have worded that better. A lot of times they act without thinking about the consequences of their actions. Some of them are actually impulsive and kind of stupid, and when they get together with friends you can triple that.

    I don't think Al Sharpton would defend someone who apparently admitted to killing another just because he could.

    Well I am pretty sure white folks don't riot over things like this is because history tells them when white folks get killed not pushing a Civil Right agenda in the Deep South, justice will be served. Cases like the OJ trial for murdering two white folks is the exception that brings the comparison into sharp contrast.

    I do believe the last time I spoke with the Cotton County Ass. DA on age restrictions, it was the shotgun murder of a 15 year old girl by a trio of white boys one county over, Oklahoma law allows down to age 13 to be tried as an adult.

    Last I heard 2 are charged with murder one and the oldest as an after the fact accomplice.

    Oklahoma isn't Texas by any stretch but it ain't from a lack of trying.
