Mayor Villaraigosa Calls Gangs Public Enemy Number One

Hosted by

Crime is down in Los Angeles and Mayor Villaraigosa says Police Chief William Bratton deserves another term.  The "glaring exception" is gang crime, which the Mayor says is "Public Enemy Number One."  Villaraigosa is in Washington today for talks with federal officials, and Bratton says he'll release details of his new plans for taking on gangs in coming days. We take a look at gang injunctions.  Do they stop crime or move it next door?  Do they deal with causes or symptoms?
