3 Oklahoma Teens Kill Man Because They Were Bored

Christopher Lane Murdered By Bored Teens

Three Oklahoma teens killed an Australian baseball player on Monday because they were “bored” and thought it would be “fun” to kill someone. Christopher Lane was visiting Duncan, Oklahoma with his girlfriend when he passed a home where the boys were staying. A 17-year-old teen in the group gave a full confession to police, but the weapon used in the attack has yet to be recovered.

The 17-year-old was assisted by 15-year-old and 16-year-old boys who remain in custody at this time. The states district attorney is expected to file first-degree murder charges on Tuesday. It’s not known at this time if the teens will be charged as adults.

According to Police Chief Danny Ford, “They saw Christopher go by, and one of them said: ‘There’s our target.’ The boy who has talked to us said, ‘We were bored and didn’t have anything to do, so we decided to kill somebody.'” The Oklahoma teens followed the 22-year-old baseball player in a car before shooting him in the back. Speaking to TV station KOCO, Ford said one of the boys said the man was shot and killed for “the fun of it.”Speaking about his death Lane’s girlfriend, Sarah Harper, told the Australian Broadcasting Corp.:

“He didn’t deserve any of this. It’s heartbreaking that it was such a random choice those guys made that drastically altered so many lives in the process.”

Lane was shot in the back with a.22 revolver, which police are still hoping to to recover.

Lane died at the scene of the shooting after a female witness attempted to save his life with CPR.

No further details have been released at this time. The police investigation is still ongoing.

Do you think the three Oklahoma teens should be tried as adults given their complete lack of respect for human life?

    As adults. They need to be made an example of. Life in Prison without patrole.

    some bleeding heart judge will give them a light spanking…. buy them an xbox and blame the parents….. these animals make me sick.

    Why do we even need a trial? Full confession. Death sentence. Too bad it isn't Texas.

  4. Jeremy Clarke

    Not only charge them but charge their parents as well, until we hold parents accountable for their childs actions parents will continue to NOT RAISE THEIR KIDS like they used to.

    hope they fry….they are obviously sick and twisted with no sense of empathy or compassion to kill someone without provocation. Society is better off without them.

    Boyz will be boyz… and are getting worse…fast. With all the sick twisted shit on tv, movies, video games, etc, the world will be seeing much more of this. Kids don't have proper brain development anymore, they don't stimulate their imagination centers anymore… so they do crap like this. Hang them.

    Yes if u have no respect for human life why should u be shown mercy for ur ignorance

    Bored so let's kill? WtF is wrong with these three? Put them in different jails WITH the population and let them live in hell a little before any death penalty. Let's see how bored they get in their own jail cell with a crazy cell mate.

    I would like to add condolences to his girlfriend and his family. Who brought up these kids and gave them everything they want so they get bored with what to do?

  10. Charlotte Blevins Hood

    They should be hung in the street and made an example of…..maybe then this idiots will stop doing things like this! Corporal punishment…that is what this country needs!

    Firing Squad the Same Day as Being Found Guilt….'we were bored….so will the firing squad be.'
    Make sure that their parents are present. Have CNN there to give full disclosure as to what the parents do.
    This could ruin someone who has their own business(es).

    Life in prison would be great, think they were bored before, let them spend the rest of their lives in jail , it will give them time to think about just how boring life really can be. Such a shame.

  13. Sarah Ekert Kauz

    Yes, they should of know better!!! were in the hell were the parents?!?!

  14. Justin Huang

    if he put them to death, how are we any better than them? We can keep them out of society by putting them in prison

  15. Justin Huang

    Their disrespect for life is appalling, how could parents raise there kids so wrong these days… It's also astonishing how just anybody can just get a gun these days, yes I get that your second amendment is important but there should be limits to such a powerful right, at least make sure the people are competent, mentally stable and not a danger to society, if not your negligence can cost people a lot of lives and grief. As for the 3 psychopaths, they can rot in jail for all I care.

    Justin Huang if we put them into the prison, we still need to feed them,someone needs to look at them, if they are sick, they needs to go to the hospital. They are already not doing any good to the society, why the taxpayers still need to waste money on them? Prison needs money to run. Killing someone for fun or no reason, needs to face death penalty.

    I cannot fathom for the life of me how one person could even think to want to kill someone innocent for no reason and think it would cure them of their boredom. However, these kids should be tried as such; and whether the law permits life in prison for children is not for me to speculate. Theres a legal standard that has been set for the recognition of adulthood and that standard should not be breached for convenience nor emotional reasoning regarding any case involving minors under the age.

    Now that's just stupid! A parent cannot be help liable criminally for the actions of their underage kids. If that be the case every single parent would be in jail at some point for their kids stealing a piece of candy from the 7-11 down the street. Now civilly that's a different topic.

    Justin Huang And cost millions to tax payers in the process. If they think its fun to kill someone, then why not let them experience the same fate?

    THIS IS WHY FIREARMS NEED TO BE REMOVED FROM THE POPULATION! They prove to undermine society and only lead to death. Just think, if these teenagers were unable to obtain a firearm, this most likely would not have happened.
