According to the police reports three teenage boys from Oklahoma were, “bored.” So they chose to do something to get over being bored, so they decided to murder the man who was jogging past them. They got in their car, they followed him, and did just that. They murdered him with no remorse and with a “Who cares attitude”.
The district attorney described the youngest, the 15-year-old, as having treated the murder as a “joke.” It was reported that he danced as he was booked. The 16-year-old, the one who pulled the trigger, showed no emotion, no feelings, or reaction when he was charged with first-degree murder. Only the 17-year-old had something to say. When the state prosecutor told him of the long prison sentence he is facing the young man responded by saying: “So what, I didn’t pull the trigger”. No remorse, no feelings, just a I do not care attitude.
I’m trying to choose my words carefully as I pen this article because. If the facts of what happen are given to the court are found to be true, these boys are pure evil and should rot in Hades forever for what they did. But will they rot in Hades or even go to jail? And if they go to a jail how long will they stay because they are juveniles.
Now, to get to the point of my thoughts and to get even nastier and more unpleasant . The (apparent) killers are African-American, so you will not hear that much from the press about the brutal crime, unless it is Fox News doing the reporting. The victim was a young Australian baseball player (A white male) who attended college in Oklahoma. The three violent beasts (again, assuming these facts to be true) I’m sure we will be told, are empty and hopeless. There will be all kinds of excuses made for them when in fact there is no excuse for the murder they committed.
Can this be called a hate crime. Was the victim selected by these punks because of his race? Does it really matter? Murder is murder. It doesn’t get much plainer than that. Nothing can be worse or uglier than the unprovoked, cold-blooded murder of an innocent victim that is chosen at random. And that is exactly what happened!
Anyone who was the least bit outraged by the killing of Trayvon Martin should be screaming like they did at the killing of Martin. The sad thing is they are not and it makes me wonder whether they ever will. Where is Al Sharpton or Jesse Jackson? Why have they not said anything? The sure spoke out about Trayvon Martin. The truth is it because the person who was shot was white and the ones who did it are black?
It would be nice if Obama would tell the public what he thinks of this brutal murder. He sure had plenty to say about Trayvon Martin. Can he identify with the parents of the kid who went for a jog and ended up dead? Could he have a son like him? No, he doesn’t look anything like Obama would have at 15 years old, at least by the color of his skin, but that isn’t what really matters, is it? Obama has said nothing about this horrible crime. The whole point about this is that these teenagers, no matter, what their age is, they have no relationship to Obama when he was their age. Evil comes in all shapes and sizes and colors. When we see it, we need to call it for what it is, “EVIL”
The news said that two of the boys had difficult and hard lives. I got news for them, so have a lot of us but we never murdered anyone. The mother of the 15-year-old is in jail. Last year, the 16-year-old lost both his stepfather and his brother. So how did he lose them? Was it a sickness or was it murder? The fact is (and there is no mean intent here), the loss did not make these kids any better people and they are no different from anybody else. We all have choices.
Could it be possible that the apple doesn’t fall far from the tree? Is that statement a cruel one to make? Maybe so. But we are talking here about the pure evil of three young people murdering a person for no reason at all except they were bored, in this case bored to death and according to the police they were on their way to another home to commit, yet, another murder when they were caught. So what is more cruel, my statement or their cruel act of murder and their wanting to murder yet another person. A whole lot of people will have plenty to say about my statement but they will never open their mouth about these kids who brutally murdered the jogger.
Plenty of disadvantaged kids grow up besieged by all forms of needs that they are deprived of but they would never kill a person because they are having a boring day. They know, deep down in their heart what the difference is between good and evil. Many kids grow up with bad parents and bad families and bad problems, but they don’t murder a person who is out for a jog just because they are bored. It is not a black or white issue. Evil doesn’t have a color. Evil is evil. It is a wickedness that grows more out of control in this country every day.
Some people will blame the crime on the gun when the real blame should rest on those teenagers and for the most part how they were raised. The bottom line is this crime is not really a black or white issue. A lot of white people would like to have it that way, just like when a white person kills a black person. When are people going to see it for what it is “EVIL”
