THE images of three youths police say murdered Melbourne baseballer Christopher Lane have emerged.

The Oklahoma teens who face first-degree murder charges have been named as Chancey Luna, James Edwards and Michael Jones.

Jennifer Luna, whose son is suspected of firing the fatal shot, claimed her son was at home saying: "My son is not that way. My son is a good kid."

The article contains the usual hyperbolic attacks on guns in America, but unlike the US media, the Australians had no problem publishing photos of the perps. And, yes, before anyone else says it, if Obama had a son, he'd really look an awful lot like Chancey Luna, the perp in the middle.

Now, when can we expect the right Reverend Al Sharpton to weigh in on this and demand justice for Chris Lane? Jesse Jackson? The New Black Panthers? Anybody?
