      • They ? It’s one boy who did this . Why do ” they ” have to all wear the action of one boy ? There has been no SGB boy club for over a year . this is one boy at a party where there were a lot of teenagers . Perhaps the bad reporting on the last story the echo published in regard to this made you believe it was a gang war .
