What about Homeboy Industries?

(Now defunct) NCCJ Brotherhood Sisterhood Camp?

The amount of independent community organizing in Watts?

All of the cultural work and cultural centers in places like El Sereno and Boyle Heights?

So much great community work (the Promotoras Program in Hollywood from 2000-2004)

All of these programs and many more like them made a GUHE difference in helping the youth get a direction and a positive identity. Myself included. Yet, strong-arm police tactics and our horribly dysfunctional prison and jail system gets the credit?

So they throw flashy noblemen and assault the houses with drum fanfares?
