A recent report called Los Angeles “the gang capitol of the world,” and recommended a single city official to coordinate twenty-three different programs that cost eighty-two million dollars a year. Today, Mayor Villaraigosa named the evangelical minister Jeff Carr as LA’s first “gang czar.” For seventeen years, Rev. Carr ran the Bresee Foundation , a faith-based community services group in Los Angeles. More recently, he managed a staff of fifty for Sojourners/Call to Renewal in Washington, DC.
