    They did let him keep it. Why was he crying so hard? I`m not one to criticize people for crying, but that seemed a bit overboard to me.

    Oh what the hell? It`s a HAND. You can see all the fingers right there, in a rather natural state. Are you seriously telling me that if ONE finger crosses another finger in a natural way, it`s a gang sign?

    Tell the gang that their sign is rather unoriginal, since we all do this.

    I`m with patchouly, I was feeling sorry for the kid until I saw him crying. Seriously? Dude, suck it up. It was a contest, your grandma didn`t die. Yeah it would totally blow to have that happen but crying about it? Really? Time to leave Chicago, and possibly the US. It`s going to be hard to find friends after they see this video.

    Why didn`t they just explain to the kid that he`d won but they had chosen to modify the hands slighty so that they didn`t cause any dispute. Telling him theyre nt using it at all is silly though.

    So, he`s a TEEN, which means he`s at least 13 years old, yet he cries like a 5-year-old? Yep, that sounds about right for the land of Obama.

    He`s 15, Ollie. And he got to keep the money. The design was terrible anyway. What they chose instead is hardly any better. There`s a reason why kids aren`t usually trusted with making logos.

    If `he` won the contest, he should get the prize, simple as that.

    If the city thinks there`s gang signs, then that`s a whole other matter...

    I couldn`t make out anything the kid said. Sounded like "anindswings... nothing gangs nothing", points to bad parenting, bad press or both. Likely both.

    All in all I found this whole 44 second experience retarded.

    Cmon, it`s obvious that kid is a hard core gang banger just by looking at him. Not to mention he is wearing all red as well, it`s almost certain that he is a blood.

    They need to disqualify the kid, not for anything that may be construed as gang-related, but for crying like a total bitch on t.v. (and now the internet) like that

    Just a minor detail:

    Turns out, his father is currently on the run from the FBI for...

    Drug and gang related violations! He was captured, brought in, escaped custody, and has been on the run since 2008.

    So, for all his crying like a little bitch, considering who his father is it`s entirely possible for them to have been gang signs he learned subconsciously from his father, whether he realized it or not.

    Just saying...

    That could well be one of the big reasons he is crying, his life is so incredibly difficult and now he has to put up with these shenanigans.

    What the drat is wrong with all of you? "Haha what a little bitch" "I wish he would go away and die already" What the hell Internet? A special needs kid wins a contest and the city heartlessly takes his prize away and when he is visibly distraught the news airs that poo? And then you non-nice individuals make fun of him and then throw around insults? Shame on them and shame on all of you.
