There’s No ‘Reverse Trayvon’ in Christopher Lane Killing
An Australian slain in Oklahoma has the right decrying hypocrisy over coverage of the white victim and black assailants. At least these killers face justice.
“I am deeply angry about this because of the callous attitude of the three teenagers,” said Tim Fischer, a former deputy prime minister, in an interview with Melbourne’s Herald Sun newspaper,“[But] it’s a sign of the proliferation of guns on the ground in the U.S.A. There is a gun for almost every American.”
Here in the U.S., however, Lane’s death has become fodder for conservative media, and in particular, its narrative of white victimization. See, the two suspects charged with murder aren’t just teenagers, they’re young black men. And for these right-wing provocateurs, the identity of the assailants is a direct rebuke to the “Justice for Trayvon” movement and evidence of racial hypocrisy from civil-rights leaders and anyone else who spoke out about the George Zimmerman trial.
....Fox & Friends took their usual approach, and attacked Sharpton and Jesse Jackson for not commenting on the shooting.“Right now, we’re going to go to a live shot of Jesse Jackson and Al Sharpton,” said Brian Kilmeade, who then stage-froze for a transition that never happened. Guest host Ann Kooiman then punctuated the gag with a few accusatory questions,“Oh, wait, we don’t have it,” she said,“Why don’t we have it? Because they haven’t come forward and said anything. Are they going to? Will they? And should they?” Not to be outdone, Steve Doocy offered his take:“I wonder when celebrities are going to put on ‘I Am Chris Lane’ T-shirts?”
These complaints—which, at this point, are ubiquitous on the right—stem from a common assumption: that race, a white man killing a black boy, was the only thing that mattered for supporters of Trayvon Martin. And if that were true, Beck and Limbaugh would have a point. But it isn’t, and they don’t.
Last year, just a few months after Martin was killed, John Spooner, a 76-year-old white man in Milwaukee, shot and killed his neighbor, Darius Simmons, a 13-year-old black boy. Neither Al Sharpton nor Jesse Jackson made an appearance in Wisconsin, and the case drew little attention from national media. Why? Because law enforcement did their jobs. There was no time wasted in Milwaukee: Spooner was arrested, detained, and charged with first-degree murder.
In Sanford, Fla., there was no action from police. Weeks passed before the city began an investigation into Martin’s death and filed charges against Zimmerman. Indeed, without the activism of Al Sharpton—and others—there wouldn’t have been a trial. If Trayvon Martin became a household name, it’s because people perceived a miscarriage of justice, one that harkened back to Jim Crow.
There was no dereliction of duty in Duncan, Okla. In short order, police arrested the teens who killed Christopher Lane, and brought them to justice. Now, they’ll be tried for their crimes. Lane’s death is awful, but there’s no procedural misconduct to focus on. The system worked.
Not that this will change the narrative in conservative media. If Rush Limbaugh, Glenn Beck, and Fox News sell anything, it’s white anger and racial resentment. And for them, Christopher Lane isn’t a person as much as he’s a product.

Here's a mind game to play: take a present day 14-year old who is heavily into digital-gore game playing. Extrapolate this behavior and its potential consequences into adulthood 40 years hence.
This extreme morally shallow adult human is then placed into a position of making life/death issues regarding a hospitalized family member. Pull the plug or not to pull the plug?
It behooves us today to instill Life values into those coming of age not just for their benefit but for those of us entering advanced age. Reap what you sow.
However, the present day media mix of government and celebrity, I fear, will sour any attempts at instilling good moral worldviews of coming generations. Read: Hitler Youth Corp running the world of the future. Obama: "You didn't build that!", Big Brother did.
This potential corruption is a present day specter.

Would the black community be appeased if Trayvon Martin had succeeded in killing George Zimmerman?

Young black men attacking whites saying "This is for Trayvon" and now killing white people is quite distressing.

A Homeland Security employee now has a website up inciting a war on whites.

If Trayvon had succeeded in smashing Zimmerman's head or beating him to death, this wouldn't be happening?

Should Zimmerman have not defended himself? Martin couldn't be considered suspect in a high crime area without becoming the attacker when young black men had committed the crimes in that area?

None of this makes any sense and blacks are making the tensions much, much worse.

"Demanded" others to disprove it?

Fox News has recently engaged in racebaiting by baselessly claiming that a Florida student's beating on a school bus and the shooting of an Australian college student in Oklahoma were racially motivated. But police and a prosecutor involved in these cases debunked these claims during interviews on Fox.
....Instead of learning from their mistake, Fox News hosts also baselessly insisted race was a factor when reporting on the tragic death of Christopher Lane, an Australian attending college in Oklahoma. Because Lane was white and two of the three suspects charged in connection with his shooting are black, Fox presented this crime as having a racial bias. On the August 21 edition of Fox & Friends, the hosts demanded to know why President Obama, Al Sharpton, or Jesse Jackson hadn't commented on the case, an attempt to connect this crime to the killing of Trayvon Martin.
Once again, an official involved with the case debunked the network's assertions that race was a factor in this crime. On August 22, Fox News host Greta van Susteren interviewed local District Attorney Jason Hicks, who said that with all of his evidence for the case, he had nothing to "indicate that the killing of Christopher Lane was related to either his race or to his nationality."

Congratulations you are a Fox News adherent. You more than any other on this thread are current with all that comes up on Fox News. Good for you. if you had a brain you would have noted that I never said or commented on race or if it was a factor, I simply relayed an unfortunate event that happened in the city I live in. It is only cheap asswholes like you who bring race into every discussion. The newspaper in this city did not comment on race, they did publish pictures of the suspected assailants. Fox News did show the pictures of the thugs.
You "sonic" would be in hog heaven if a story broke about two white thugs shooting a black man in the back as he was out jogging. You make all your judgements based strictly based on color, not, on what one accomplishes. Al, blacks good, all whites bad. You are a racist.
