Clemmie Cheatham looked over at Jorge Hernandez and smiled.
"I know for sure that he and I never fought on that day."
Jorge Hernandez seemed nervous.
"All I remember is that was the day I lost my pager. I was back in study hall trying to find it during the fights. My girlfriend's sister had warned me to stay inside, because everybody was fighting outside."
Jorge says that when he finally did go outside, a security guard took down his name. "I remember asking him, 'What are you taking down my name for? I haven't done anything.'"
Jorge is asked why he carries a pager.
"I need it because my mom calls to tell me whether she can come to pick me up in the car. If she can't come, I have to walk home, and it's about four miles down the road.
