Where is Joseph Kony? Lords Resistance Army

I have been following the Joseph Kony stories for several years now and thought a few might be interested in an update. Seems as though Obama has sent American troops to Africa to fight the Lords Resistance Army in an effort to divert a bloody Civil War in Africa. Very interesting indeed!

18th Street Gang - Notorious!

My Intro to CRJ students should find this one rather interesting! :)

Rather interesting documentary on the 18th street gang which is one of the major street runners in L.A. This particular gang is responsible for the highest gang related murder rates in the South Central area and seems to be getting larger. A lot of the rival gangs are scared of this group and fighting over turf takes place daily. Check some of it out and let me know how you think this problem should be resolved!
