Spokane police confirmed Friday that a 16-year-old, was taken into custody in the killing. Police identified the second suspect, also 16, who was on the loose.
“We would encourage [the suspect] to surrender immediately,” Spokane Police Chief Francis Straub Straub said in a statement.
The Spokane Police Department released the name and photo of the at-large suspect on the department’s Twitter feed and news reports identified the name of the teenager currently in custody. It is the policy of the Los Angeles Times not to identify juveniles accused of crimes unless they are being tried as adults.
They beat an 88 year-old WWII veteran to death. He was NB (not black). Increasingly, it appears that America has only two "races" of people: B, and NB.
Jesse hasn't had anything to say about that, although he did opine about the murder in Oklahoma:
“The recent incidents of violence in America most notably the murder of Christopher Lee an aspiring student athlete from Australia in Oklahoma and the attack of a student on a school bus in Florida once again calls each of us to collectively resist all forms of violence in our society.”
The victim in the Oklahoma attack, however, was Christopher Lane, 22.
Social media posters were not amused. One wrote on Twitchy: “The 22 year old Australian Athletic MURDERED by 3 Black Thugs name is CHRISTOPER LANE Not #ChrisLee @RevJJackson. Get it Right.”
Moreover, Mr. Jackson’s error comes on the heels of another tweet that received a bit of social media outrage for its understated tone: He tweeted the killing of Mr. Lane by the three suspects who said they were “bored” was “frowned upon.”
Yes, the killing is "frowned upon". Way to go, there, Jesse. It appears that if Obumbler had a son, he wouldn't look like Mr. Lane, so he's staying out of this one.
