Here's the scene at a rally yesterday, held to urge that more money be spent on gang intervention programs. That's former Los Angeles City Councilwoman Jackie Goldberg, left, joined by Families to Amend California's Three Strikes and the Youth Justice Coalition. They want more jobs for youth and are against the repeal of Special Order 40, which keeps LAPD officers from asking about immigration status.
