My YouTube friend "EASTOAKLAND106" sent a message informing me of the Discovery Channel TV series called "Oakland Gang Wars". Part2Pictures created the controversial series, which aired September 14th at 9 PM.
The show has reports to a fair degree of detail regarding the gang problem in Oakland. There are, for example, over 10,000 gang members versus a special unit of just eight cops. Now, Oakland's a city of about 150,000 adults - the rest are kids. So that means if half of those members are adults, then about just less than 3 percent of the adult population is a member of a gang in Oakland.
Shocking number. Plus, the gang members are concentrated mostly in East Oakland. I've got to check into that estimate, but that's what the show announcer says.
Here's a video "EASTOAKLAND106" created of the first episode of the show:
