#WhatDoWeTellOurSons about being a leader and not a follower?  Christopher Lane is an Australian baseball player who was killed while visiting his girlfriend in Duncan, Oklahoma.  Three men have been charged in the crime.  Two black and one white. 

The three teens accused in the murder- James  Edwards, 15, and Chancey Luna, 16, who are charged with first degree murder and  Michael Jones, 17, who is charged as an accessory for driving the getaway car-  are all being held on bail.

What is intriguing about this case is the lone white young man is being charged only as an accessory, in spite of the fact that he was driving the car while they shot Lane out of “boredom”.  Though all three are being tried as adults and a  first degree murder charge in Oklahoma can come with a death penalty, they will  not face the prospect of execution because of their age.

The white boy is the OLDEST of the group, shouldn’t HE have known better?

Come on now.  In California, the driver gets the most time.  What the fuck?
