This past Tuesday, the city added another gang to its injunction list bringing the number of injunctions to 26, covering 14,000 of our estimated 39,000 active gang members in Los Angeles. Hazard Grande gang members now have a strict curfew and can't congregate together in public. 6 months in jail and/or a $1000 fine can be given for violators.

Long Beach also has "added some teeth" to their youth curfew.

Just last night a "known gang member" was shot and killed in Reseda.
