Los Angeles Gang Intervention Program Provides Model for Other Nations


Los Angeles police say Los Angeles is the "gang capital" of the United States, with hundreds of active criminal gangs. The city is also home to a gang and re-entry program called Homeboy Industries which has helped thousands of young people say no to gangs and choose a better path. As Elizabeth Lee reports from Los Angeles, the program is so successful that other countries plagued by gangs are looking to Homeboy Industries for help.
