CHICAGO, Illinois (CNN) -- The Rev. Michael Pfleger has ordered the American flag at St. Sabina Church hung upside-down -- a historic sign of distress -- to symbolize the growing death toll among the city's youngsters.
Alex Arellano was beaten, burned and shot in the head last week. He was 15.
So far this school year, 36 children and teens have been murdered -- more than one a week -- and Pfleger is among a chorus of weary Chicagoans who say the slayings aren't getting the attention they deserve.
And to think: That corpulent talking head wants to push disgusting chicken to the masses but cannot even begin to stir up any attention about this issue.
