More than a couple of folks have written in about this Tribune story by Tracy Dell'Angela and David Heinzmann on the killing of a Fenger HS student (Cop fatally shoots teen).
As you'll see, the piece isn't just the facts, which are unremarkable, but rather a brief and searing portait of a kid and his friends trying to grow up.
As one person wrote me, the article "gives a true sense of the type of awful stuff that our kids and our high
schools are dealing withand it really shows that theres often some
good hiding behind the thug posturing that kids do to try and fit
in or to survive."
