Gang membership and violence in the PBS video

http://www.pbs.org/wgbh/pages/frontline/interrupters/

The PBS video available at the link above profiles the problem of gang violence among mostly African-American inner-city residents in Chicago and a group called ?The Interrupters? who try to get gang members to exit ?the life.?

The second video (posted above) is a broadcast of Professor Lawrence Bobo?s (Harvard University) keynote address at the 2011 conference of the national Institute of Justice. He discusses how criminologists have studied the crime problem among young, black, inner-city males and offers some insights into why this group is disproportionately involved in the criminal justice system.

After watching both videos, offer a 300 word discussion of how Professor Bobo?s theoretical observations in his keynote address help explain the gang membership and violence in the PBS video. What obstacles would Professor Bobo see to the good work ?The Interrupters? are trying to do? Make sure you use theoory and information from the assigned readings and provide clear examples from both videos to explain your observations and claims.
