Curbing Street Crime
On the one month anniversary of the mass shooting in Newtown, Connecticut we were reminded of the chronic gun violence that shakes up our city streets.
Last Friday 13-year old was shot in Roxbury on his way to choir practice. The good news: He's expected to recover from this shooting. The bad news: these acts of violence are still the norm rather than the exception.
Is there anything that we can do to prevent the next shooting? Do our political leaders and policy makers have a plan to curtail this brand of city violence? To answer these questions we spoke with a man who has made ending street crime his life's work, Pastor Bruce H. Wall.
