So far, four Black teenage boys have been arrested and charged with First Degree Murder in Derrion's death: Silvanus Shannon, Eric Carson, Eugene Riley, and Eugene Bailey. President Obama announced that Attorney General Eric Holder and Education Secretary Arne Duncan will go to Chicago this week to look into the incident. And Obama's spokesman has indicated the administration is preparing an initiative to address the national issues of youth crime and violence. Jesse Jackson and Nation of Islam Minister Louis Farrakhan attended Derrion's funeral and called for an end to youth violence.
