You have to look at poverty and demographics (like BR & NOLA vs. the rest of LA)...
That would be the main cause of all the gang violence in this state. Yet, they still want to point the finger at something else to be political correct.
And while I'm thinking about it, political correctness is just a crutch so someone doesn't have to say what he or she really wants to say. It's a bogus term and prevents any progress from being made since the person is so worried about hurting someone else's "feelings." Screw that shite.
EDIT: Purple, those are some amazing graphics. I think the most telling is the one with gang populations. I didn't realize Chicago and L.A. had us beat by such a large margin. Amazing!
