Tragedy: Australian baseball player Christopher Lane, 22, while visiting the USA, was randomly gunned down while jogging through the town of Duncan in Oklahoma on Friday afternoon local time.
Three teenagers, aged 15, 16 and 17 years, are accused of Lane's murder. Police secured the confession of the 17-year-old who summoned investigators to his jail cell and claimed he and the younger boys were bored "so they decided to kill somebody".
"They saw Christopher jog by the house they were at, they chose him to be the target, they got in the car, drove up behind him and shot him in the back. "He said the 16-year-old fired the shot."
- How were these thugs raised that they wanted to kill someone just because they were bored?
- How did these underage thugs get a hold of a weapon?
- Did they steal it?
- And if not, then what criminal (yes criminal) adult let a minor get access to a weapon unsupervised?
We need to start putting both the minors and the parents in jail for this sort of thing.
