$24 Million L A Gang Program to Bring Redemption?

Los Angeles, CA The Full Disclosure Network® is releasing the first three parts of an on-going Cable TV Series exposé on the failures and successes of gang prevention programs across the nation starting with the City of Los Angeles. Full Disclosure host Leslie Dutton interviews major players in previous L.A. Gang Wars and Mayor Antonio Villaraigosa's new "Gang Czar", L.A. Deputy Mayor Rev. Jeff Carr, who is implementing the Mayor's new gang strategy, a $24 million Program called "The Gang Reduction and Youth Development Program".

Featured in this 10 minute preview are the following experts:

  • L.A. Deputy Mayor and "Gang Czar", Rev. Jeff Carr, who is planning to augment the current gang suppression effort by law enforcement with Mayor Villaraigosa's two prong strategy, prevention and intervention using "gang members can be redeemed."

  • * Sgt. Richard Valdemar, a 32-year veteran of the Los Angeles Sheriff's Department and an International Gang specialist, who predicts that "the use of gang members to intervene during gang violence will not work."

  • * David R. Hernandez, a long time Los Angeles civic activist, who says, "The City is either ignoring or concealing the all out race war between local gangs."

This preview contains video clips from the first of three parts in the new series. Viewers will learn what strategy works and what doesn't when dealing with vicious gang members who commit heinous crimes. You can watch the first three installments of this series on your local cable television by checking our channel listing on the website. Or you can purchase a three-set DVD from Full Disclosure.
