This is a very sad case about a juvenile offender in which a life had been threatened and killed. This case only goes to show the social problems that we are now facing with our children. This case is a call not only to parents but to all who are responsible in rearing the children of today.
Ricardo S, 15 years old at the time the crime was committed, was at the school yard of Fort Hamilton High School in Brooklyn, according to a witness. It was October 21, 1980 and it was clear day. Ricardo was seen approaching the victim. According to facts , Ricardo had a handgun and threatened the victim to hand over his gold chain which he wore around his neck. When the victim apparently refused to give his gold chain, Ricardo then shot the victim and then took the gold chain from the victim’s neck.
