State Gets in on LA Gang Crackdown
California Attorney General Jerry Brown is all about crime fighting. The former Governor (and possible future Governor again) is in Los Angeles today after 30 plus search and arrest warrants were executed in South Los Angeles locations as part of an ongoing gang enforcement operation in the City of Compton. Why is the state getting involved in a local matter? "State agents crack down on local gang operations when the violence reaches a level that makes local containment difficult, if not impossible," a press release announcing this afternoon's press conference explains.
