Gang Injunction Targets Speak Out, Part 3

Claim They Were Unfairly Named


Taped interviews recently filmed and released by Youth CineMedia — a nonprofit that works with at-risk youth by getting them off the streets and into the production room — depict individuals who say they were wrongfully named in the city’s gang injunction announced last week. The injunction seeks to limit the movement and activity of 30 men and women who law enforcement feels are at the root of Santa Barbara’s gang activity.

While The Independent has not been able to verify claims made in Youth CineMedia’s tapings, we nevertheless feel the footage warrants attention. Below you’ll find one of the interviews as well as a copy of the injunction itself.
