‘For the fun of it’ makes ‘Lane’s murder sound like the second coming of Leopold and Loeb…’
Writes Ed Driscoll, and I almost want to add “I wish!”
It’s sad when you’re almost nostalgic for criminals trying to prove their “intellectual superiority” by committing the perfect crime, instead of displaying their inferiority by committing a thoughtless, pointless one.
And I would add, the “boredom” motive also sounds too, well, white to be entirely believable either.
