Oklahoma Gov. Mary Fallon Says Barack Obama Should Express Condolences for Aussie Baseball Player Christopher Lane’s Death at the Hands of 3 Board Thug Teens
Yet another Obamanation …
Oklahoma Gov. Mary Fallon appeared on Fox News Sunday and stated that President Barack Obama should express his condolences for “trill killed” murdered Aussie baseball player Christopher Lane at the hands of three board teens. The governor stated that it would be a nice gesture. Ya think? How can the Obama not weigh in on this story seeing that Australian government officials have made comments and have even talked about boycotting America. Obama certainly had no issue interjecting himself into the Trayvon Martin shooting, or when his Harvard professor was arrested by police who “acted stupidly”. However, there is silence when the victims do not look like Obama’s son, had he had one.
The question here is not that it would be a nice gesture for Barack Obama to address the issue and offer his condolences, the fact is it is his job and obligation to do so.
President Obama should express condolences for the Australian baseball player killed this week in Oklahoma, that state’s governor said Sunday.
“I think it would be a nice gesture for him to do that, especially since the country of Australia has expressed its sentiments as to the murder itself,” Gov. Mary Fallon (R) said during an appearance on Fox News Sunday.
Lane was killed in a shooting in which three teenagers shot him while he was jogging. The teens said they killed him because they were bored.
Even though, one of the murderous teens, James Edwards, sent out tweets that he hated white people on his Twitter account, Jason Hicks, the district attorney for Stephens County, where Lane was killed, said there was no evidence to treat the case as a hate crime.
