LA Mayor Villaraigosa Kicks Off Summer Long Anti-Gang Reduction Effort At LA City Parks

LA Mayor Antonio Villaraigosa kicked off the summer long anti-gang reduction effort at LA city parks today called "Summer Night Lights." Several LA city parks will stay open later, some as late as midnite, offering education, artistic, and sports activities to local at risk youths as an alternative to gangs. USC Football Coach Pete Carroll, KCBS Sports Anchor, and 3 LA City Councilmen helped launch the program at Glassell Park. The Mayor even threw some nice spirals into the crowd impressing Coach Carroll.
