    Gangland Tours.........

    This is sorta' like the old "Life in these United States" articles from Readers Digest, that I recall reading many mango seasons past.

    It is, at least, interesting. http://www.the-tidings.com/2010/010810/gangtours.htm

    I almost posted that yesterday.
    Can you imagine the uproar the first time they get shot at and/or boarded? In the gang world territories are fluid, and agreements for the safe passage are worth what they (aren't) written on.

    just a few minutes ago had the promoter on the show. It is all couched in explanations about 'helping, promoting understanding, etcetera'. The tours, at that rate, should be free!

    Oh never mind. It's not a hunting trip. I'm no longer interested.

    Among others, the paper quoted Alfred Lomas, the former gang member turned anti-poverty worker and gang interventionist who is spearheading the project backed by local businessmen. In trying to obtain a "safe passage" cease-fire agreement through Jordan Downs, the 45-year-old activist, who directs a mobile food ministry for the Christian-based nonprofit Dream Center, reportedly said to a "shot-caller" or gang leader: "I'm not saying you have to stop shooting each other. Just allow me a certain time in the day…. Just let the bus go through."

    Quote from article^^^^^^^

    This is simply ludicrous, Same old Bull crap,sensitizing the public to the poor and downtrodden Gangbang mentality.
    They'd be better served having a tour bus bring the Gangbangers, and taking them through everyday America neighborhoods, and showing them what honesty, hard work, and dedication to family will get you.

    I got no use for this crap

    Does it cost extra to be robbed?


    So now the gang members have jobs.
    I wonder if they will show up.

    Wow... Just wow. I wonder who insures this guys venture?

    It's kinda like a safari adventure. I think he should wear Khaki shorts and vest with one of those safari hats too. I also think they should have a 'local' guide that helps with translations and customs too. Do they bring in trinkets to appease the natives as well?

    Yeah and the participants have to sign a "death waiver" even though the promoter has an "agreement" with the BGs that they won't bother the bus.
    How about a pool to nail the first time the bus gets robbed?

    I heard about this in the news this morning and started cracking up (no pun intended), but then, when I hears about the "death waiver" I almost bust a gut.

    I wonder if the first tour bus should be full of anti-gang units backed up by SWAT.

    Local guide=promoter="former" banger

    Trinkets=whatever the passengers have on them.

    Insurance? You think the banger in charge actually tried to insure this venture?

    This is one of the stupidest ideas so far this year, but it is only January.

    What a load of garbage.... They are cashing in on sensationalizing gangs until a gangbanger decides to shoot up the bus to get street cred.

    Yup, trust is exactly what gangs are noted for (not).

    That was my first thought while reading this.
