FROM THIS EPISODE

When someone gets shot in Skipp Townsend's community, he is often one of the first on the scene. Sometimes he knows the victim personally. Skipp works as a gang interventionist with the LAPD. His job is to find out why the shooting happened and to prevent retaliatory killings. Through mediation, education and working closely with activists in the community Townsend acts as a liaison between citizens and law enforcement.
