The alleged “thrill killing” of a white East Central University senior by three teens last Friday has Allen West wondering if anyone involved might look like President Obama’s hypothetical son, and others wondering when Al Sharpton and Jesse Jackson will arrive in Oklahoma to demand justice for the victim.

The New York Post reports that three suspects — Chancey Luna, 16, James Edwards, 15, and Michael Jones, 17 — told police, “We were bored and decided to kill somebody.” Christopher Lane, 23, a native of Australia studying in Oklahoma, was shot in the back and died an hour later. “They saw Christopher jog by the house they were at, they chose him to be the target, they got in the car, drove up behind him and shot him in the back,” Duncan, Okla., police chief Danny Ford said.
A Vine video reportedly shows Edwards playing with a rifle.

Editor’s note: This post initially indicated that all three teens charged in connection with the murder are black. According to The Daily Mail, one of the teens “is said to be white and the other two are black.” Twitchy regrets the error.
