Questions Multiply About Quinn Anti-Violence Program

Gov. Quinn's office says he didn't know that two Chicago teens who were hired under his controversial anti-violence program launched in 2010 were actually gang members or that one stands accused in the other's death.  The Chicago "Sun-Times" reports that Jermalle Brown and Douglas Bufford were hired to pass out anti-violence pamphlets in their south side neighborhood.  While they were on the program's payroll, both were allegedly involved in a break-in and robbery at a Chicago home during which Bufford was shot and killed under circumstances that aren't clear.  The newspaper reports that while Quinn says he didn't know about the link between the robbery and his program, his administration had been told about it by a community activist who complained that gang bangers had been hired by the program.
