Gangs in the Americas: State or Community Violence?
I haven't heard from VoxUnion.com for a while. It's about time.
Jared Ball interviews Luis Cardona the Youth Violence Prevention Coordinator for the Montgomery County Department of Health and Human Services on the topic of how to best deal with the issues of youth being attracted to street gangs.
- Are politicians purposefully or neglectfully allowing this situation to continue?
- Are the authorities exaggerating the amount of crime attributed to these gangs?
- How can we prevent gang enrollment before it takes place?
- Is the accepted soultion (incarceration) actually exacerbating the problem?
