Is This Gang Injunction Really Needed?

Hosted by

Mike Feuer replaced LA City Attorney Carmen Trutanich in this year's election, but he's come down on the side of the new anti-gang injunction Trutanich wanted in Echo Park and parts of Silver Lake. A court will take up the matter tomorrow. It's been denounced at neighborhood meetings, partly as a tool of gentrification. Are those in favor just not showing up to be heard? KCRW producer Evan George went to a gathering last night in Silver Lake.

CORRECTION: Violations of a gang injunction that stem from otherwise legal behavior, like congregating with other named defendants, are considered civil contempt of court violations not criminal offenses.
