Angry Residents In Child Murder Case

NPR's Cheryl Corley reports that residents are angry at police in the Chicago neighborhood where a seven and an eight year-old boy were arrested for the murder of 11 year old Ryan Harris. Charges against the boys were dropped earlier this month, after evidence showed the boys were too young to commit the crime. Now the people of Englewood, Illinois are demanding a new and more thorough investigation of the crime.
