Gang Coverage on TOL
There were three gang shootings this weekend in Portland and one of them resulted in a fatality. Here at Think Out Loud we talked about how best to cover this news, and kept coming back to all the shows we've already done on gangs. What's the new discussion, we wondered. What do people want to hear about now?
In the past we talked to former gang members about their first-hand experience on a couple of shows. We also talked to policy-makers about curbing gang violence, and community members actively trying to deal with the aftermath of violence.
Take a listen back and let us know what you think. Is there anyone we haven't talked to that we should? What do you want to know about how this region deals with gang violence?
