In our Language arts class, we just finished reading a book in class called The Outsiders by S.E. Hilton. The story takes place in Tulsa, Oklahoma. Its about to rival gangs the Greasers and the Socs. The Socs are rich and the Greasers are poor. They love hurting Greasers. After we finished the book, we had to write a newspaper article about an event that happened in the book.
Kids and Weapons Equals Violence
(Tulsa, Oklahoma)– There was terrible murder recently in Tulsa, Oklahoma and it was a real tragedy. It happened last night at a local park were apparently a kid named Robert Bob Shelton was stabbed to death The kids involved in this murder were apparently from two separate rival gangs. The names of the gangs are the greasers and the Socs. The people involved in the incident were Ponyboy Curtis, Johnny Cade Robert Bob Sheldon.
We interviewed Ponyboy Curtis and Johnny Cade and this is what they had to say about their charges for the murder of Bob. Ponyboy and Johnny were outside roaming the streets and walking all over town. They would take some breaks. They are members of the gang of the greasers who are rivals with the Socs. They also said, The Socs favorite hobby is to beat up the Socs. They walked to the park and then a big blue mustang drove up and 5 Socs got out of the car. Ponyboy and johnny said they were scared. Bob and the others in the mustang were trying to drown Ponyboy in the fountain. Johnny then took out his knife and went over and he stabbed Bob right in the chest. The only reason why Johnny stabbed Bob was because Bob was trying to kill Ponyboy and Johnny was only trying to protect his friend because thats what friends do.
