    I thought maybe you would be interested in this in light of the disagreement we had in the past about teen violence.


    Chicago Teens Charged With Murder in Fight







    (CBS/AP) Prosecutors have charged three teenagers with first-degree murder in the beating death of a Chicago student who was walking home from school.

    Family members believe the victim, 16-year-old Derrion Albert, was fatally beaten Thursday for refusing to join a gang. But some witnesses say he was a bystander who was swept into a violent fight.

    CBS News station WBBM in Chicago identified the suspects as Silvanus Shannon, 19; Eric Carson, 16; and Eugene Riley, 18, all of Chicago.

    A local minister told WBBM-TV he felt "outrage" after the incident.

    "They should be outraged that a young man with great potential has lost his life to foolishness," the Rev. Renaldo Kyles said.

    After Chicago police increased its presence at the school, some children said they're scared about getting there, not what happens inside.

    It would be interesting to know if these three teens had ever arrested before for vilence and if they ever did time in juvinille detention. Two are now considered adults and face life in prison.

    I have to admit I didn't picture anything that bad. But this violence in the teen population is an epidemic in the US. I think Great Britain too. One dead and four others as good as dead. For what?
