Celeste Fremon is a freelance journalist living in Los Angeles. She has retained close ties with Father Greg Boyle, Homeboy Industries, and the East L.A. Pico neighborhood residents.
[Celeste Fremon] offers [Father] Boyle as an example of how approaching gang violence with an eye towards prevention and intervention can be much more effective than simply aiming for 'lock-'em-up and-throw-away-the-key' suppression. Throughout she includes the words of the gang members themselves as they reflect on their lives and what would aid them in improving their circumstances. In this new edition, she adds an afterword that follows up on the fates of a number of the individuals discussed in the main body of the text. - streetgangs.com
