December 28, 2011, 9:20 am
This week on Portland's Morning & Afternoon News, Gregg Hersholt
had a three-part series on the Rose City's problems with gangs.
It's getting worse. Just five years
ago, there were 31 gang shootings in the city. Since then, gang activity has tripled. This year, the gang team has already
been called on more than 100 times. Up first, we look at why?
On Friday nights, you can see a group of men in Holladay Park across from
Lloyd Center talking to kids. They're trying to redirect young lives
away from gangs.
In the final part, we look at the reasons and solutions.
