a trail of blood and battered body. police parents and principals are the last to explain the violence. on steve chaff on this episode a want to go to the front lines of these teenage battles to find out why so many kids are willing to fight and even kill their fellow students. for being out they say. i'm just a band. yes kids. in. street rules among students have been
a custom an intern easier for decades but these regular fights between rival schools known as tower on have now evolved into something much more sinister. over the past five years more than one hundred thirty pupils have died in nearly eight hundred drools in and around jakarta. the school should be about learning and growing as people as a place to plan violence are not a student. problem skokie is why mess with the classroom. they call even to summarize. and stage play straight back to us things. despite the premeditated crashes sometimes even for the death. mohammed billy abil loved football and when he left school he wanted to join the
army. he started high school last september but his new school. didn't want to send her son but she had no choice it was the only school in the area that she could afford. when i knew that we knew. our values a lot i'm. thinking talked. about this how. to draw on the solution to. our. not very troubling ability. to grow up in a. fairly
wanted to fit in so when after school brawl was arranged via text messages he headed straight. to a fight just like this one. when the violence attract an audience of fellow students who post then videos online. on the day billy joined the find his song he too was out numbered. they lost and he was stopped several times. nearby residents tell me about that day. letter that out of them a letter and the one that we're going to let you know you know. that
they searched for billy hunter back of the family completing heavenly. money and your fellow man let us have you here they have all night. for all you know what i don't know that the. film itself is the one from bali that i get be a part of my dad got about. like that's all. there was a lot of going up on but i get that. billy's home his mom sensed something was terribly wrong but. it wasn't. no longer was alone going to. go about. that i want to. call on all the to do so.
the police have done anything to find. i knew. i was going to go and i found out when you got it's got to go from the holy ghost you got a little laugh with him on the sly and you were to give him his. new my lawn the truck on his mates are in the twelfth grade of another jakarta high school and the seasoned street fighter us. proud how young were you when you watch your first off if i say i but i'm one of those for about one school but when they sneak. past me. i want the last spot the bunk why do you get involved in street brawl and why is it that you get so young say not marketable and i one. for danny me see. a man out in the bottom and he's playing
a little bit about how you arrange to meet for the five things on. las vegas and he's how does one tell me why i wasn't for long i want nice bar i don't know right now so. you'll know. if i were. in traffic club. the parks are a place to exercise and relax. but for the street they offer something more. decades the kids did yesterday to fight with fists but nowadays they use weapons and one of the school kids was telling me they hide those weapons in parks like this because i can't take them to school and this is his and this is why kids are now dying i. was.
told when a debate about the food or weapons that you use. it's the choice of weapons and you would you know that they're just sort of seniority that you have to have to use certainly and. that no. one knew. what i. mean and i know not. only having a young son what i own. thing and so little. house when i you know when you think i was snooty or what i mean. the seniors tell the younger students the time around is a rite of passage is how you prove that you're now a man. is it the intention to kill the other kids just stop what your target was you know. but it wasn't so so why do you think some people are being killed or is it just going to people doing it when they shouldn't be and i
taught our you know. so many you know if i'm going to bring money what i'm missing my single most near me i'm going to be on the news here when the numerous times and then you need when i'm going out in meeting. in another neighborhood in jakarta another family grieves the loss of a teenage son. and he. was seventeen when his group was ambushed by a rival school gang in twenty fourteen. when his mother a little he die at the news she rushed to the hospital. my worry about what i'm about a guy you'd be identical. because
a police spokesman and ask him about his claim. what's your reaction to the high yeah i mean. if the moment i want to buy another look at that press out of hand i've got out of three of us actually it had to do us to get the actual gun so that we see some scene i've got out of my. i don't yell for me see developments on the bus i just want to get farther. along which are not able. to do or i'm lucky. of the get out of the box and when i watch it on a couple of the one that did i doubt it and i like the way or whatever i want to see another one but when he died. to come out and i'm with. you. while the police deny asking for money to work on a case they do up mate but it's often difficult to gather evidence to convict street brawlers including those who killed audi billy. hostess because.
of a name that she was given at the time is the chief suspect by the police can you tell us if anybody in particular has been arrested has been questioned there being a line that you were not the one for the guy there that i was. there with or. yeah i thought i'll go out with you and if i do that i was i guess actually yeah. yeah yeah. so as you can do i just actually i look at it that i have and so that sounds like a dead end does that mean she's very unlikely to see anybody. brought to justice for his death. by john doe when you took it as was in may. with the police struggling to punish the offenders i go to educate
a high school to ask the principal how he deals with the street brawls. level then but about in my time start the process but unless he didn't have the police. then. on top of the hour this is why we made the watch stop seeing. someone and it bessie from what i hear yes and i wonder what i knew that he. but he is the first to admit they are struggling to understand why fight start in the first place. but the friendship turned into going see. him or see. it but. given all of the very nice obviously the random former pupil our freshman believes
he knows the route he's written a book about his own street brawling and talks to students about how it's through his life of course. i would run a policy of it in my name but. not in anger and i'm going to end up. setting in a beer but i'm yellow. i would i'm glad that it was a bit out of yeah but it's. not my idea of the. media and that's about all that anybody got up and i don't. want to do can actually. be someone had a gun i must follow. her but i am filing but i knew my one. young woman. i think it's about prestige about rite of passage to being a man how do you stop that when it's part of the indonesian culture. of another now
what are you going to day or to last. day i didn't go out so i get up with. my guy in the last minute i'm young. enough for life and i know us about ghosts of what we've learned about them by data but i mean. that i am indebted to them not enough on that i would add the added element will be needed i'm. not going to i am in every moment. a mommy thought i would i'm glad that it was a virgin problem. resound i see what i mean. two months. by the end of august is one year i'm done i will honor on i mean i'm not but i know that's all i'll never understand but. this group psyche means greater confidence and violent. and sometimes death leaving families broken.
i come back to billy's neighborhood after a phone call from his mother. she's given up waiting for the police to find her son's killer but she's tracked down a friend of the boy she thinks is responsible. she's also say go with her she wants to come from this friend to see if she can find out why the boy humor these and us lives and then we can go there. then i think. we will the rest of the way to the friend's house. or at least mom pleads for his help.
so this is the friend. over the boy she believes killed her son he's now promised to take her to sing about boyd to see the guy she wants to confront. the friend who was also in the brawl when billy died doesn't want to be identified but he agrees to show her the house of the suspect. it was a gift to you so i was not going to look at it i'll be happy i don't have to have taken it down like what we put our eyes. well i don't i will i know that i'm sorry that is it was about. my i don't understand. what i was hired back and which i'm not so i don't mean to do it bad i'm not saying. so but i would i want to. say i'm not going to but the i will be
one of so you know. we had into the district asking for the house of the boy she wants to confront but the friend who promised to help now says he's not sure where the boy lives so we go to the community leaders house last year i was in. the middle of the battle he has i don't. know what and why i'm done. because the district leader to ask for help at that one would want to talk about. all of them all of them are coming to did not at. all go to court for so. that was a bottom on. all of the pressure. yeah. it
wasn't on. the phone but it was on. the problem with the. fact. that money wasn't mine on top of. that i was. going to have. to tell the public. but just moments after being told the boy she believes killed her son has been arrested she discovers it's not him. and. not let us out that none of us know about it i mean look at what he got and we have. for you see that. happen we don't want to
see i don't i'm one of. the community leader then suggests we meet the district leader he spoke to on the phone to see if he can help track down this family. is now pinning all her hopes on the district leader. but he's not pleased to see house with her. and his mother starts to rick's playing how she can only find some peace if she can confront the boy the police a killed her son but the latest says unless she has the correct address he cannot help. he is going to help.
me. i'm sorry sorry. very. there seems to be a general acceptance of these street brawls by many here a rite of passage for teenage boy is this attitude needs to change if these fake liberals are to be stamped out early the schools on the planes are really struggling to work out why the tower on the breaks out and indeed how to stop these boys from street fighting but that doesn't always the compulsively have an impact and get through to them if. we've lost the song and the fight saying.
a school i say he'd written on the very day he died it sounds like a premonition. was like my final after. this afternoon was to scariest. after my life i don't feel the pain anymore. if only i could turn back time. eagle hunters still roam uncle years rugged mountains but how long can their culture survive the modern world one of those determined to save their ancient connection to the magnificent golden eagle at this time on al-jazeera one of our biggest strengths is that we talk to normal everyday people we get them to tell their stories and doing that really reveals the truth people are still gathered outside these gates waiting for any information most of them don't know whether
their loved ones are alive or dead or miami really is a place where two worlds mean we can get to washington d.c. two hours we can sit on juries in the rest of central america about the same time but more importantly why those two cultures north and south america. when the power goes out. has only one man to turn into a. local hero and to many he still needs electricity. but keeping the lights on is dangerous. as your forces cracked sparks begin to fly. powerless a witness documentary at this time on al-jazeera.
