    A Duncan police source confirmed to Mediaite, Wednesday morning, that 17 year-old Michael Jones is not “the one with the lightest skin,” he is a white male. It is true that 15 year-old James Edwardsand 16 year-old Chancey Luna have been charged, as adults, with first-degree murder, while Jones is charged as an accessory after the fact.

      alas, this points out even more the idiocy of racism and classifying people.

      Ayn sucks. Please know I am not rude. I cannot rec anything from this browser. When I rec or post diaries I am a guest at some exotic locale's computer.

      court that he shot the Australian.
      http://www.washingtonpost.com/...

      As the boys appeared in an Oklahoma courtroom, a 17-year-old blurted out, “I pulled the trigger,” then wept after a judge told him that Tuesday’s hearing wasn’t the time or place to sort out the facts of the case.
      The white shooter was charged with "using a vehicle to facilitate the discharge of a weapon and accessory after the fact of murder in the first degree” while his black co-conspirators were charged with murder one.

      The RWNJs attempt to use this set of reported facts as evidence of a media or racial double standard is pointless. Sadly, this isn't the first (Leopold & Loeb) and it won't be the last murder committed by disaffected youth who have easy access to guns. This is just another in the too long list of senseless gun violence attributable to lax gun control.

        "I didn't pull the trigger.

        Stephens County District Attorney Jason Hicks confirms Smith’s account. Michael Jones has been charged as an accessory in the murder of Chris Lane, and was the last of the three suspects to speak at Tuesday’s hearing. Hicks says that Jones blurted out “I did not pull the trigger,” before Judge Jerry Herberger stopped him. “I was standing right next to him, Mike Smith was standing right next to him, a whole bunch of deputies heard him,” DA Hicks says.
