Mayor Antonio Villar with SNL patronts
Tonight at 7 P.M,. kicks off "SNL Season 2012" which will be the last Connie Rice, Councilman Eric Garcetti created after-hours programming taken credit for by Mayor Antonio Villar.
Lauded as a crime reducer in At-risk Neighborhoods (by offering homies work for peace), SNL Season 2012 comes at a sensitive time for many At-risk Communities state-wide as thousands of supposed "Non Violent, Non Revocable Paroles" are being set free.
Violent up swings in gang-related crimes in areas with SNL programs (Glassel Park, Highland Park, South LA, Wilmington, Boyle Heights) will surely test GRYD and LAPD resources this summer.
Last year, three SNL participants were injured in gang-related shootings. This summer with the thousands of prisoners roaming their former hoods, the potential for more bloodshed is at an acute level.
