A Local Gang Crackdown Brings in the Feds

Hosted by

Under various names, the Avenues Gang has controlled the Drew Street neighborhood in Northeast Los Angeles for generations. That’s where AK-47’s were used in a wild shoot out with the LAPD just last February. Today, 500 agents swept in to serve warrants that raised the ante. Tonight: can federal prosecution succeed where local and state enforcement has failed?
