Whose neighborhood

Gang injunctions; solution or political theatre
The city of San Francisco is known all over the world for its natural beauty, gourmet restaurants, and booming nightlife. When people think about San Francisco, they don’t often think about gang violence. But that’s just what’s been plaguing the city’s mission district for many years.

On this edition, Making Contact intern Joaquin Palomino spoke to former gang members, and other mission residents, about gang injunctions, a controversial legal strategy that’s divided the community. Some call it a solution, but many believe it’s an ineffective measure that does more damage than good.
