Tear Jerker: Menace II Society
The scene where O-Dog kills a liquor store clerk and his wife.
The life that at least is respresented by Caine in the film. A guy who does not want to be criminal but their environment has done so, and having done everything possible to get out of the ghetto, is ultimately killed.
