Gang violence: "Bullets strike...
"Bullets strike where guns are pointed, and innocent people get hit just like gang members do," said Captain Mike Parker, Sheriff's Headquarters Bureau. "Although homicides have decreased 38% in Los Angeles County compared to five years ago, Sheriff Lee Baca says that one life lost due to violence is too many. What we need most is for the public to be so fed up with violence and gangs that they get involved. Call your local law enforcement. If you see something, say something."
