The Moral Decay of America's Youth...

"I hear no sirens. I see no lights.  Oh my gosh, how long is it going to be?"  Those were the words of a desperate Joyce Smith on a call with 911, who was waiting for an ambulance to arrive to help 23 year old college student Chris Lane.  Chris, an Australian student attending college at East Central University in Oklahoma, was a stellar athlete, who had just left the house of his girlfriend of four years, Sarah Harper.  He was jogging down a rural road in Duncan, OK, when three gang bangin' punks, James Edward Jr., 15, Chancey Luna, 16, and Michael Jones, 17, thought they would go out and shoot someone, "Just for the fun of it."  Below is a video of 15 year old James, who is disgracing the Army by the shirt he is wearing:

Then there's this little gem, also from darling James:

So this shooting will be classified as a hate crime right?  By the way, I don't want to hear that it's because they live in the inner city that they did this.  They don't.  They live in rural Oklahoma. They killed because they wanted to.  They killed because they are evil. Their parents can claim that their children are good kids. They are not!

Mr. President, where is your outrage?!? Your principal deputy White House Spokesman Josh Earnest wasn't even aware of the incident!   


Why haven't you come out and said how young Black men are just misunderstood, or have it rough, or how there is racism that still exists in this country?  You spoke up about the Camden police before you knew what the circumstances were, and with the Trayvon Martin case.  So where is your speech on how we need to come together as a country? How about you Attorney General Eric Holder? Or you, Congressional Black Caucus, National Urban League, and Al Sharpton?  Where's the rally lead by Jay-Z and Beyoncé? Anything?!?  Of course not. Although I guess we should be grateful that Jesse Jackson at least sent a tweet.

I guess when the only thing that the youth of America hear from their idols today in the media and Hollywood is how irrelevant the unborn, elderly, or disabled are, they will have no care or concern for the rest of society!
