Script Details

Fade new music in…BR Ester Pitts

Juan Pitts Tape 09-100: The day Kendrick was murdered, my wife had, I heard my daughter yell upstairs and said that Kendrick just got killed. I was just waking up when I heard her hollering up there. It was kind of a shock at first. I ran up to the school and, well it wasn’t the school, it was a couple of blocks down from the school(05:02:39)

VO: This seventeen year old Bowen high student died just a couple blocks away from school.

Juan Pitts Tape 09-099: He always, sometime came in at five, six o’clock. I’m like why is he here? (04:26:29)He just, I don’t want to be on the streets.

VO: But on February 20th, 2009 Kendrick Pitts braved the eight block walk home.

Ester Pitts Tape 09-097: Kendrick was actually walking the two boys home (02:24:20)because they were afraid and he said he would walk them home.

Juan Pitts Tape 09-100: And they was walking through a alley or something and guys come out there running and they, from the police statement they wasn’t the intended target but they all three of boys got shot multiple times.(05:05:25)

VO: Kendrick and his friends represent the thirty second, thirty third and thirty fourth Chicago school students killed last year.

Ester Pitts Tape 09-097: I guess it was some gang retaliation going on that he was caught up in the midst of the gang fire. (02:24:37)

VO: The gunshots scared eighteen year old Carnell, Kendrick’s older brother, who ran onto a bus for safety.

Ester Pitts Tape 09-098:(03:09:01)It affected him so great because he saw his youngest brother body laid out on the ground. He saw the blood over his face. He saw it and it affected him so great. (03:09:14)He wasn’t the same after his death.

VO: Two weeks after burying his younger brother, the same fate visited Carnell.
