That compassionate humanitarian, Jesse Jackson, has weighed in via Twitter on the cowardly murder of Chris Lane, the baseball player from Australia who was gunned down over the weekend in an attack by 3 teen-aged, gang wannabes . He was shot in the back in cowardly fashion by thugs who were “bored” and “thought it would be fun.”

Here’s Jesse’s heartfelt tweet:

Rev Jesse Jackson Sr @RevJJackson
Praying for the family of Chris Lane. This senseless violence is frowned upon and the justice system must prevail.

Will he really lead a rally to show us how he frowns upon this random murder by three thugs who TRULY stalked a victim? In gangland parlance, such attacks are known as “Polar Bear Hunting.”
