Death of a young one in Chi-town

I wasn’t having the most pleasant day to say the least… got home and checked my e-mail account for job offers. Nope…nada…same amount of mail in my inbox as yesterday. Patience is a virtue I rarely practiced… so I’m disappointed and frustrated with my current unemployment situation…Why not surf the u-tube land and see what’s on the most discussed list and what socially aware v-loggers are responding to… see a page about a 16 yr old getting hit with 2×4′s that looked like solid 4×4′s and kicked and punched from all sides by some kids probably his own age. The young man’s (deceased) name was Marrion… a honor student at his H.S….WTF!!!!!! …that’s all that came to my mind and the thought of rage and violence that swept around him while dozens watched.The quote that stuck with me the most was….(paraphrasing it) …‘We lost 10 people from this city this year in the war in Iraq….and we lost 300 kids on our own streets… where is the real war going on?’ …there were clips of people speaking out about this slaughter of devious intentions.The last comments I heard about it was that he didn’t want to join or participate in a gang fight… impressionable minds being torn and pulled in the wrong direction.Youth clubs, youth centers, or after school programs….what’s the answer?There’s video footage of this shit on u-tube but gotta warn you it’s too graphic and distasteful. Just too awful and harsh.
