How heartless and how terrible! The poor kid came here to go to school on scholarship and to play the great game of baseball and something utterly idiotic like this happens! Three dopes killing this poor guy out of boredom?This is very disheartening news.

I can't even put into words how stupid this is. Bored? Really?!!? Never in a million years would I have come up with a plan to kill someone out of boredom. Unbelievable.

Turns out it was a gang initiation, according to the man who called the police to report the murder:

What a completely sickening story!

...and we wonder why people from other developed nations think of the good ol' USA as the land of violence.

Having just returned to Chicago from another country (Italy), the homicide issue is the first thing you notice when you get back. Other countries literally just don't have this problem. It's kind of amazing (and really really nice) when you literally feel safe wherever you go.
