Last night Chicago police arrested residents who tore down an Olympic 2016 banner.

Score another one for the me-president. Barack Obama will fly into Copenhagen tomorrow to make a pitch to bring the Olympic games to Chicago in 2016. Obama makes his pitch despite the fact that unemployment in his political hometown is in the double digits and crime is at an all time high. So far there is no word from Obama about the death of Derrion Albert, 16, who was beaten to death last week as he walked home from school.

More children died violent deaths in Chicago this year than in any other city in America.

But all Obama cares about is bringing the Olympics to a city where basic services like water, sanitation and power often don’t work. He doesn’t care about the children or the residents who don’t want the Olympics in their city.

Some residents are so concerned about the burden that the 2016 Olympics will place on the city’s budget that they created a web page NotChicago.com. The sole mission of the website is to support the other cities that are vying for the Olympic games “because we would very much prefer that the Olympics be held somewhere other than Chicago — anywhere but Chicago.”

If Chicago does win the bid there will be plenty of police and National guards on hand to protect the International visitors. That’s more than they are willing to do for their own residents.

Some of us are still reeling from the images of school children killing one of their own in Chicago last week. 16-year-old Derrion Albert died from brain injuries caused by blunt force trauma to the head after being jumped by other students from his high school. Contrary to numerous erroneous media reports, there was no gang activity involved.

The confusion stems from civilized adults trying to make sense of uncivilized behavior.

There’s a classic book written in the 1950’s called “Lord of the Flies” about a group of British boys stranded on a deserted island in the Atlantic ocean following a plane crash. The adults didn’t survive the crash so the children were left to govern themselves. Eventually, in the absence of adult supervision and with no social rules to conform to, they turn on each other like savages.

In this video found on What About Our Daughter’s blog, Central City High School Principal Ras Baraka tried to make sense of an off-campus shooting involving a high school student from his Newark, New Jersey school.

“This is not normal!,” he tells an audience of the injured student’s peers.

“You’re living this life like it’s normal. This is abnormal to talk about your friends dying, to not be able to walk home safely from school… this is not normal to be wearing t-shirts that say ‘Rest in Peace’, to be writing ‘Rest in Peace’ on the wall. This is not normal! Nobody else’s children do this!

Sadly, he’s right. Only in the black community are our children killing each other off at alarming rates. What’s wrong with our people?

At the end of the book “Lord of the Flies,” the children who have already killed two of their own, are in the process of killing a third boy when a naval officer lands on the island, interrupting them. The naval officer’s ship was attracted to the island by a fire the kids had set.

The officer expressed surprise at the children’s behavior, telling them he expected better from them. The officer who was unaware of the two murdered boys assumed the children were playing a game.

His confusion stemmed from a civilized mind trying to make sense of uncivilized behavior.

According to the Chicago Tribune, 3 teens have been charged in the brutal beating death of 16-year-old honor roll student Derrion Albert as he walked home from school through the Roseland neighborhood of far South Side Chicago last Thursday (9/24).

The three teens charged with first-degree murder are Silvanus Shannon, 19, Eugene Riley, 18, and Eric Carson, 16, according to the Cook County state’s attorney’s office. All 3 will be tried as adults.

The three were caught on video wielding 2-by-4 wooden boards which they used to strike Albert repeatedly about the head causing massive head injuries during a melee involving students from Fenger Academy High School. Albert was pronounced dead three hours later at a local hospital.

Four others are being questioned in the assault. Joe Walker, Albert’s grandfather who helped raise him from a baby, said police expect to arrest 6 or 7 people in the case.

WARNING: The following video contains graphic violence

It was like a scene straight out of the classic book Lord of the Flies. But instead of British schoolboys descending into savagery and killing each other on a bucolic deserted island, we have Chicago area schoolboys beating 16-year old honor roll student Derrion Albert to death in the South Side Roseland neighborhood last Thursday (9/24).

What’s equally as disturbing as watching children turn on children in this video is watching the savagery unfold through the eyes of the nig-norant videographer who reacts gleefully to the senseless violence as if he’s watching a video game come to life.

The video shows Derrion in the mix of a street brawl that erupted between dozens of his fellow Christian Fenger Academy High School students as school let out around 3 p.m. on Thursday.

Derrion can be seen at the 45 sec. mark swinging wildly at a teen. As he does so, another teen wearing a red jacket over the same high school uniform as Derrion’s, comes up behind him and strikes him over the head with a 2×4 board.

Derrion crumpled to the ground in the parking lot adjacent to a community center in the 300 block of West 111th Street. As he struggled to get to his feet, a younger boy, wearing a dark shirt and Chicago Bulls shorts, dropped him again with a vicious punch to the jaw.

Derrion tries to rise again and stumbles a few yards to a street corner where the young savages realize he’s easy prey and set upon him with their fists, feet and boards.

Several youth workers, and a passerby who abandoned his truck in the street, helped drag the mortally wounded boy into the nearby Agape Community Center. Police arrived on the scene seconds later and remained with them until an ambulance arrived.

According to the coroner, Derrion died from massive bleeding in the brain caused by blunt force trauma to the head. Four students in all were injured in the melee.

Monique Bond, Chicago Public Schools spokeswoman, tried to distance Fenger Academy from the violence that claimed the life of one of its students.

According to the Sun-Times, Bond said the school district was told there is possibly a conflict between two gang “factions,” but “it has nothing to do with the school.”

But clearly the video shows otherwise as most of the participants in the brawl, including the assailants, wore Fenger Academy school uniforms.

Chicago police were questioning several “persons of interest” Sunday night in connection with the fatal beating.
