CHICAGO (CBS/AP) Cell phone footage showing a group of teens viciously kicking and striking 16-year-old Christian Fenger Academy High School honors student Derrion Albert with splintered railroad ties has ramped up pressure on Chicago officials to address chronic violence that has led to dozens of deaths of city teens each year.

NEW YORK (CBS) A young girl just barely escaped getting crushed by a car in Sunnyside, Wash., and it's all captured in stunning security cam footage.
Six-year-old Yasmin Frausto was walking on the sidewalk outside of a convenience store when a out of control Toyota Camery backed up into a wall.
In March, police stormed the Lakeland home of convicted drug dealer Michael Difalco with guns drawn and flashlights at the ready. But searching for drugs is hard work and what the crack squad of officers thought they really needed was an invigorating game of bowling.
Fortunately Difalco had a Nintendo Wii and a big screen TV at the ready!
NEW YORK (CBS/AP) They went undercover and posed as a pimp and a prostitute, and now 25-year-old conservative activist James O'Keefe, and his partner, a scantily clad 20-year-old college student dubbed "Kenya," have raised serious questions about ACORN, who they claim, offered the two unfettered, and perhaps illegal, advice.
ACORN, the Association of Community Organizations for Reform Now, which advocates for poor people, has since fired the two employees captured in O'Keefe's video.
NEW YORK (CBS) While heckling the President of the United States is distasteful, there is little doubt that South Carolina Republican Rep. Joe Wilson's actions were legal when he shouted, "You lie," during President Barack Obama's health care speech Wednesday night.
But other assemblies around the world (and right here in America!) are frequently far less civil. In fact, some are downright violent.
Here's our top 8 list of what happens when politicians throw down:
ZACHARY, La. (CBS/AP) Most people would be walking awfully funny after a case of beer. But a woman in Louisiana isn't charged with drinking the beer, she's accused of stealing the 24-can box between her legs and it's all caught on tape.
Police in Zachary say security video shows Lisa Newsome, 42, pulling up her housedress, putting a case between her thighs, pulling her dress back down,
and waddling out of a store.
Yet another brave New York store clerk managed to thwart a gun-toting robber during a caught-on-tape wrestling match that would even impress The Rock.
The courageous 21-year-old Bronx clothing store employee took two bullets to his left leg during the bitter struggle on Aug. 23, but managed to rip the firearm out of the fleeing crook's hands.
NEW YORK (AP) In 2005, a rebellious and sporadically employed Israeli man flew to New York to give up a kidney to save an American businessman. For that, he says he was paid $20,000, which appeared in a brown envelope on his hospital bed after the operation.
That payoff would be illegal.
NEW YORK (CBS) Let's start by saying that no one thus far is accusing "Grey's Anatomy" star Eric Dane of committing a crime. But a new video leaked to the Internet which shows Dane, his wife Rebecca Gayheart and former beauty queen Kari Ann Peniche romping around naked and at times barely coherent has raised some questions.
At one point in the video, Gayheart, who seems to be holding the camera, says "I need to lay down too. I am very high." She then joins a naked Peniche, who was lounging on the bed. Dane wanders around the room, perhaps in search of his pants.
