Is a Gang Injunction Needed in Echo Park?

Hosted by  • 

Tomorrow, LA's new City Attorney, Mike Feuer, will ask a court for an anti-gang injunction in four square miles of Echo Park and some of Silver Lake. But crime is down, and opponents warn about racial profiling that can tag kids as gang-members for life, making them ineligible for jobs or education. Feuer wants a five-year limit and an easier way to get off the list kept by the LAPD. Also, a conversation with Josh Garrett, who set a record for hiking from Mexico to Canada: more 2600 miles in less than 60 days. Just think about it and you'll be out of breath.

The secret court that's supposed to provide oversight says it can't do the job. Would proposed reforms create risks for national security?
