Prince, pretty young immigrant from Ireland, bullied to death.

Walker-Hoover, just a kid from the U.S. All you read about is violence and it's almost always minorities, at least in greater Lowell. In Boston it's blacks. Drive by shootings, gangs, whatever.

Each of these stories are tragic and I recall each of them. Sad that 'or kids' are such animals.
