Six months after a 15-year-old boy was slain by thugs over a $200 iPod, a second alleged Crip gang member is charged with his murder as the boy's devoted parents vow to help keep a Brooklyn neighborhood safe from gangs.
"People are afraid, but they're starting to come forward. I'm thankful there's been a break in the case," said father Errol Rose, 53.
On July 2, Christopher Rose was on his way to a Fourth of July pool party in Pennsylvania. He was listening to a friend's iPod while walking two blocks away from his mother's home in East Flatbush when hoodlums demanded the iPod.

How does that apply here?
"Soon there will be calls for kids to quit carrying iPods, to keep from tempting the poor misunderstood urban youths who have no iPod and no self-control.

My brother wanted to splurge on some expensive sunglasses. My mom told him not to, mentioning a kid who was ordered by some thug to give him (the thug) his glasses, and then after handing them over was shot dead. Sad how someone is not allowed to enjoy wearing something expensive since it might get them killed.
Naked materialism run amuck.
Great idea but the ACLU would probably say you would be interferring with his 1st amendment rights of free speech or religion by being a member of a gang.
