CHICAGO (Sept. 28) – Three teenagers were charged Monday in the beating death of a 16-year-old Chicago honor roll student on his way home from school, a melee captured on a cell phone video that shows a group striking him with boards and kicking him as he lay on a sidewalk.
The death of Derrion Albert, a sophomore at Christian Fenger Academy High School, on Thursday has reignited community outrage over chronic violence involving city students and is putting pressure on school and police officials to address gang problems that often are at the root of such violence. More than 30 students were killed in 2008, according to district figures, and the city could exceed that toll in 2009.for the rest of the story pls go to http://news.aol.com/article/derrion-alberts-beating-death-captured/690024
This is fucking crazy.... Out of the million and two people out there standing around watching no one could help this little boy? No one could call the police before things got to this point? It's really sad when people act like this type of violence is an everyday thing and just allow things like this to happen. I find it senseless that another young life has been ended over some bullshit. When will this stop?
