Strange that MSNBC, CNN and pretty much any other MSM site are referring to the murderers as bored teens and are refusing to release photos of the attacker. No mention of the race of anyone.

 

Even Foxnews isn't playing

If you go to the Australian media you find the following picture

Compare that to the Treyvon articles where Zimmerman was immediately and often labeled as white or white hispanic even after being called out.

 

Strange..

I saw this on GMA this morning... honestly the race of the alleged shooters didn't cross my mind.

 

Probably just some punk ass kids trying to be badasses...  

 

 

 

I do hope that they are tried as adults.

This article says they could face the death penalty...

Yep, many ways you can go on something like this when you publicy stick your nose into these things.

Obama will be asked if he had 3 sons, would they look like these, OR, would they look like the dead kid.

Funny how CNN who rushed to say white on black crime without even checking GZ's race, are silent on this one. No story here for them I suppose. And I am complaining about our pres and the media here.

I find this situation a tragedy, just like the GZ/TM situation. How can kids "kill" because of boredom? This is tough one for the president since he is saying nothing and now a foreign country will see him as racist? Maybe that is why the media is quiet

Not a good situation for sure.

Hope they're tried as adults without the opportunity for parole.

I don't think the death penalty is an option for anyone under 18.

 

Edit: Looked it up. Looks like Oklahoma has sought death penalty for someone under 18 before (they do not have a minimum age, or did not at that time at least). The Supreme Court ruled it unconstitutional.

 

I doubt the death penalty would pass even if it is legal by state law.

Some would argue that's unusual punishment for a minor.  Especially since that's a life sentence/die in prison.

Not speaking for him of course, but I think his point is not that the kids were black, but that the media goes out of their way to not mention race in a case like this, but it's the first thing that's mentioned when it is reversed.

 

imo it's all about what the news media can stir up and cause ratings with.

 

The race of these 3 kids has zero bearing on this.  At least not to me... it doesn't sound like it was any kind of racially motivated incident or anything like that... just three dumbass punk kids who thought it would be cool to kill someone.

    • WaPo isn't partners with the CIA. Amazon Web Services, which sells servers to thousands upon thousands of companies and websites, sold servers to the CIA. You can buy your own now right here. Does that make you partners with the WaPo? https://aws.amazon.com When Jimmy Dore says "600 million dollars is more than the Washington Post is even worth!" he's being a dumbass. The Washington Post didn't make the deal with the CIA so what they're worth is irrelevant. Amazon Web Services sold them servers, and they happen to have the same parent company as the Washington Post. The thing about Jimmy Dore is that he is absolutely utterly obsessed with Hillary Clinton. Like, utterly obsessed. Everything goes back to Hillary Clinton to him, and his obsession has morphed into skepticism of the Russian investigation, because he views it as an excuse for why Hillary lost. He can't accept the Russia stuff being true because if it's true then maybe Clinton didn't lose on merit. And so his skepticism of the Russia investigation has led him down the path of 'well the Deep State is conspiring against Trump' and 'the Deep State is the real true evil.' He fact-checks nothing. It's Alex Jones level poo.
    • Anyone who can equate any modern presidency at any moment in time with the embarrassment we see right now is off their gd rocker. What is really telling is that we now see that Trump can't just be casual.  He can't just talk it up with other peers.  He can't just chill the f*ck out. Seriously....people like this are weird as hell.   It's been obvious he's the head of a business but not a business savvy guy since the Apprentice.  I don't understand why we want the Sharknado meets 80s bad guy of Presidents.
