California Leads the Way

Giving tourists a look at gang culture -- "A group of civic activists, united by faith and a belief that the poor economy in the interior of Los Angeles is a social injustice, is preparing to offer bus tours of some of the grittiest pockets of the city, including decayed public housing, sites of deadly shootouts and streets ravaged by racial unrest.

After a VIP preview last weekend, L.A. Gang Tours expects to open to the public in January, giving tourists a look at the cradle of the nation's gang culture -- the birthplace of many of the city's gangs, including Crips and Bloods, Florencia 13 and 18th Street."

Reminds me of the tour buses that were going through the Ninth Ward in New Orleans after Hurricane Katrina so that people could see the devastation. I didn't get it then and I don't get it now.

Is this a new way of importing victims? --- Or a plot for a new reality TV show?
