    The fact that Derrion Albert died from being beaten to death by gang members because he wouldn't join the gang is sickening to me. How could people be so evil and cruel now a days? Seriously, the poor thing was beaten by 10 to 15 gang members from two different gangs. What could he have done to deserve this?

    This rule, the “no snitch” rule is very unfair. If you wanna live all you have to do is not tell on anybody. Its understandable why people follow it because they would like to live but if you don't give people up to the cops then more and more people will be hurt or killed. I don't think this is right or fair at all. Especially to watch someone die in front of you and not do anything about it. Derrion Albert could of survived if the “no snitch” rule did not exist.
