Concerned father led police to teens charged in Okla. murder

(Continued)

DUNCAN, Okla. —

The line is a lyric from rap artist Chief Keef's song, "I Don't Like."

Police have said the teenagers were not part of a gang but saw themselves as “gangsters” such as those portrayed on TV and in the movies.

U.S. Rep. Tom Cole, whose district includes Duncan, said the shooting is not representative of Duncan or Oklahoma. He addressed comments by a former deputy prime minister in Lane's home country of Australia, warning citizens against traveling to the United States because of lax gun control laws.

Cole said he regretted the comment. "But that is a free country and a vigorous democracy," he said. "But I think if Australians would take the time to look at this nation, and Oklahoma in particular, they will find we have shared values and shared commitment to a free society."

Details for this story were reported by the Duncan Banner.

On Wednesday, the House of Representatives voted to authorize Speaker John Boehner to sue President Obama for allegedly overstepping his legal authority with the way he's handled Obamacare. Good call?

Yes. Obama's been overstepping his authority since day one in office. It's time he pay the piper.
No. The allegations are ridiculous and the law suit is a waste of time and tax payer money.
I don't know. I'm not a huge fan of Obama, but the suit seems a little extreme.
