Killing Of Australian Sparks Calls For Boycott Of U.S.
Former Australian deputy prime minister Tim Fischer is urging Australian tourists to stay away from the U.S., following the fatal shooting of 23-year-old Christopher Lane, an Australian on a baseball scholarship at East Central University in Ada, Oklahoma.
Fischer told the country’s Herald-Sun newspaper that Australians should boycott the U.S. as a way to force Congress to act on gun control.
WBUR and NPR's Here and Now host Robin Young spoke with Claire Crouch, a reporter for KSWO, the ABC television affiliate in Lawton.
Police say Lane was jogging through a neighborhood in Duncan, Okla., when three teenagers drove up and shot him. Those three teens have now been charged.
