The murder of Derrion Albert


Four teenagers have been charged in the beating death of Albert, a 16-year-old who was beaten with railroad ties and stomped to death when he had the misfortune of walking into a street fight between two gangs of youths. It happened outside a Chicago community center, and police were able to identify suspects thanks to an amateur video of the fight.
