3:39 am
i am not sure but i think this division is only 10 square miles and you've had 40 murders and that's that's the lowest amount of murders we've had in decades and it's virtually all gang related there are some that aren't and you have some domestic violence but most of it's gang related and a lot of it's doper than we're going to go eat. a lot of boys you know average up to a towel and out of the day every day. as an average corner war on avoiding really got it together we can you know make a living more tonight. bring your own life back. so we do. not totally need a thing like a good thing every day. i get paid every day every day i do a good count for you barry. please

3:42 am
everything. what a lot of every day when i try to get everybody i did the good. china stuff recognized. i have been pretty. peeved a wasp it was day one. of.
3:43 am
so. thinking of getting a new gun the ones we got in here shows no problem was he didn't know until he was trapped in this tiny little wired how much are you going near the crate with him he will stir freaking out and she will want to spray him anywhere near and thousands of breeding dogs are caged in the into lane conditions on puppy farm i mean 67 years you know they've been locked up in a cage outside you see no protection from the weather the heat you know the courtier the rain the snow the funder nothing they have no protection. to get what you. get through kid. across the u.s. cruel puppy mills are supported by dog shows and pet stores most of the puppies that are coming from these large scale factory farming kind of operations are being sold in stores even joined a good businesses are involved like agoa mom son to there has been
3:44 am
a shocking amount of organized opposition to adverts to increase the standards of care for dogs bred in commercial breeding for so many most of that opposition is coming from huge agricultural groups and industries that have nothing to do with jobs don't buy dog on o.t. . moved up into the big time they know me more wrong. and it's. only through the surveillance photos that we got it was.
3:45 am
in this community there are people who believe that it's ok to to sell marijuana to put food on the table it's ok to sell practical food on my table and it's i got a tail it's really hard when you get into the community and you see how some people live and you see that there are no jobs and you see that i've got kids that have to eat and as a parent. i can't come up with a logical argument to say that if i were in that situation and that's the only option i had that i wouldn't do the same thing and so it's been really important to me to try and build some understanding in the police officers in the realities of the community and that doesn't mean by any. any sense that i condone it or i will let it go on especially since the other reality is that almost all the homicides that we do have are directly wrapped around narcotics and narcotics sales and so
3:46 am
you might have people that will claim it's a victimless crime it's not there are people dying over it several years ago in the early sixty's this community was predominantly white and you had the steel mills and you had a lot of economic growth and then the riots came out a lot of those folks and a lot of those businesses left the community one big. because of fear too because of the folks within the community destroyed it themselves and it was hard to get economic growth and development back into this community because of the fear and i feel like south los angeles has just been left and pushed to the side since the 1965 riots and that i don't believe there's been enough time and dedication and passion income compassion and a fight for equality to build this community we need to get past the riots kind of a weird thing to say because that happened a long time ago it's been 20 years since the last one but the riots the 65 riots of
3:47 am
92 riots left a huge scar in this community they left a scar in this community that has caused the business not to be able to come back. until we can bring business back to this community it can thrive there isn't a sit down restaurant in watts there isn't a movie theater in watts we do not have a y.m.c.a. or a boys and girls club or a large community center where a child can go after school to receive tutoring in sports and afterschool program on a larger scale and every other store on any given street in watts is either a liquor store or a funeral home or in a church. you
3:48 am
might. know. that i was going to. have one good look at me like if you don't let. you know if you were to go there yeah you medalling could see you want to lie in state hustling you know saying stay hustling real before felon bros was really all i know rather than this day and one day where i know i'm not going to you just like i'm not going to change that i'll believe you and now say i'll be here with nobody to tell you i'm even by being you you'll be in a failing army you know santa feel like you can't make it you know saying there's a way you can make it all me programs you would get into how many you can get you a job or a legitimate job homie and at the worry about all that man but the good the people got to help me get a job they got right now i've been looking for 5 months bro. me 5 months

3:50 am
the cliff. i love me for any of them my life time but the passing of my brother. would be the most. and i was a big toll on the passing of my brother but i deal with him every day leaving reed . yeah the last plaintiff before you out of a so it had heard me but. not to the extent that i lost my brother. i mean and in a few years later i lose my sister my sister getting killed. so i still haven't recovered from all that like the saddest feel taken oh you know toll on me to where i haven't found a way to cope yet. i am. i am.
3:51 am
i and. there's been a great number of shooting incidents which have occurred right outside. right outside between the church and a liquor store as a matter of fact a few years ago i was told by the sheriff's department there there were more shooting incidents that have occurred right outside our church than anywhere else in south l.a. . and try to be open to all different types of people because we're in an area where people who are constantly hurting and costly in need so we have to look beyond ourself in the boards helping people we have so many people that don't have a father so i can serve as our role model and that image and to give a positive right or many people who haven't seen productive african-american males
3:52 am
. matter we. only. my older brother was a gang member and my young brother was a gang member so i understand what happens where gangs and often times when people are trying to find them so they'll search and search and then they'll find again. some of the gangs they give them a sense of worth they feel important they feel like they are someone. however we try to do is really to let them know you don't need a game you have
3:53 am
a sense of self-worth. with the lord. that you can have a different sense of self-worth and you don't have to depend on anyone and besides that you can get involved in something this on. gritty you can be more. good news mason we started like this we will look up in the sky and surveying l.a. we saw a lot of helicopters in the sky we knew something was going on so we want to track that down and more is something going now my guess what is no yellow tape but. we will find out what happened. to cameras and very powerful weapon and once you have that camera on the camera doesn't lie on action you know you don't have to walk out the test you know and do any of that stuff your camera is your house is not going to live the l.a.p.d. murdered an unarmed teenager in the imperial courts housing projects thursday

3:55 am
this body here is 115th street one of the busiest rock cocaine spots by far and ones but i would say even in the country. my experience nobody does more on cocaine than the bombing on the bloods and i mean the money is huge it's probably $30.00 to $50000.00 if you can in sales just in this developed would be biased. their rival gang raping you creeps in the same problem they do make money and seals narcotics and the motivation to stay within the gang is means a lot of the meeting is an ongoing feud between the great tree crips and the money kind of blood we've had 4 murders in the last week and i think into the murders were 847 so when they go out on what they call a mission that they were murdered they were
