    "16-year-old boy beaten to death in Roseland"
    Derrion Albert was beaten to death out side Fenger High School after a confrontation with to other boys. None of the people around him bothered to help him as he was getting beaten to death. He was beaten with all types of weapons.

  5. @ ELiza- I think that its crazy what people would do for a gang. Its good that the police caught the guy who stabbed and killed the boy.

    The article "Getting To Chicago's Boys Before Gangs Do" is talking about how these boys that go to school in Chicago in Little Village. It says how this group called "BAM" tries to get these young boys to stay out of gangs before they are sucked into them. These kids tell about the things they have seen in Chicago and the things that they heard that happen to kids that are in gangs and they say how they don't want to be that way. This group helps kids go into the right direction and not make mistakes in life.
