Tonight’s guest Gus Roxburgh is the executive producer of Crips and Bloods: Made in America, one of the most thoughtful and certainly the least sensationalistic documentaries I have ever seen about gangs in Los Angeles. Directed by Stacy Peralta (best known for his skate doc Dogtown and Z-Boys), and available for viewing on, Crips and Bloods presents not only startling figures (from 1960 to 1998 in Northern Ireland, 3526 people were killed in sectarian violence, while in thirty years, LA gangwarfare has killed 15,000), but takes and intimate look at gang members past and present.
