studentChicago, Illinois, Sep 29 (THAINDIAN NEWS) The teenage crime situation in Chicago had never been more violent than this. Over the weekend, the continuous airing of the footage depicting the brutal beating that led to the death of a 16 year old student, has highlighted to a great extent the generally feigned ignorance that the authorities choose to imply in the matter. Now, with so much hype already being created by the matter, it is going to be harder than could be imagined by the authorities, to answer all the pertinent questions.

Derrion Albert, a honor roll student at the Christian Fenger Academy High School, was just at the wrong place at the wrong time. The cell phone recorded video clips relayed quite shocking statistics, when it highlighted just how ruthlessly Albert and few others were beaten, in what had been a fight between two rival gangs. Being a hapless scapegoat in the violence that broke out between two gangs on Thursday, Albert had sustained heavy injuries to his head.

The video clips had depicted that he had been hit hard on the head with wooden boards and supposedly fell to the ground shortly after that. It was then that the others around him, attacked him and began raining kicks and blows on Albert, as bystanders stood by and looked on.

However, it is still not been made very clear as to why Albert was attacked in the first case. Was he helping a friend and landed up being beaten, or he had refused when he had been asked to join, irking the wrath of the unruly mob.
