So, what sort of punishment does this "17-year-old Chicago boy" get for robbing a female? Let me guess, "released to parents"... only to be congratulated by them for beating the system due to and age technicality, and then sent out onto the street to do more of the same. The word "boy" suggests a young and slightly innocent/helpless person, when I'm will to bet it's the complete opposite. The word "male" would more fitting.
