11:47 pm
ghetto we grew up in a war always. i don't know i'm off obviously i grew up in the street where my best friend was my go to. these brothers go eat they go to the movies they go to other places just like all the other people do all for certain ole but when they come out they area they just odd ass that's more recent time either gang bangers the drug they just why why do you everybody got that one tag on we not day so take the tag off motto is very few people like us to talk to the youngsters now it's like they are here with the hey like no telling what to do the school they go to juvenile back in floor that's why brothers like us see our race steady going down i mean if you out here you know you are in the streets. you know if you are your own you officer standing around you.
11:48 pm
small. for those that can make it. as their. basketball tournament. brothers against guns is committed to a long list of projects like the basketball tournament organized by the housing institute but perhaps the most ambitious of its projects is the redirection project which tries to change the course of the money those of those who sign up selection must be strictly a kind of that's come from a war zone as was all of that when the flood brothers as. the redirection project will start on the fifteenth. as you seen older boys come down in a day and fill out the application we've got a bunch of them coming down here we don't know nobody to be popping up and they got before somebody yes. you be indented by like
11:49 pm
a little staffer just. me and we are we have questions we have course we have like ten to fifteen questions that we ask him are you gang related do you go teasing him out do you got the major beef you still smoking marijuana and the last question really going to be are you willing are you ready to make a change because if you're not then redirection is not for you you say and just like most of you got called out and wind up losing a city jobs because they still smoked a week. you know you know they had to take a piss test and were told they had to take a piss test and it wasn't a fair play and when they go take a test as they testing back then they wonder. when they simulate a total nation why do this thing. the redirection project is about to start classes will be held in
11:50 pm
a room in city hall and will last for three months in neutral territory far from the war zone these kids are told a little of everything i will look for a job how to get my id card or simply how to fill out forms. and they learn civic behavior in the end what they really want is to find a job. and almost typical sunday morning in the american neighborhood but here nothing is typical. kids can't come here because it would mean risking their lives. a rap singer is very committed to his community and to peace promote his latest cd . everybody. we don't. know if that. is really.
11:51 pm
working for the. rapper j.t. promotes peace with his music the neighborhood association organizes the gang but this is nothing but a brief time out public festivals with police are a far cry from daily life in the neighborhood for the young people who live here daily life is a. future no hope their only choice is for the future prison. films everything of this camera this footage reveals what life is really like in bayview . so i. know.
11:52 pm
what they say. i'm always talking i'm always speaking how we need to get money before will rule. a little to what. we use and you'll. hear. here at any moment fun and games can turn into tragedy. there's been another murder in the streets of a car drives by. once again a family races into the street to cry over a young man. here drive by gang shootings are common in san francisco about fifty people are murdered every year mostly in.
11:53 pm
the snow. like klitzman. said. this is how the kids remember their dead friends and specter tony. from the special brigade against youth gangs tell us about. these. things they don't know why they're doing it they just remember the last shooting that they need to adventure the last killing that they need to send a message about. all right. so. i mean. just literally been held hostage or you know i mean. they live their lives but everybody knows. according to the inspectors the presence of gangs here is evident they inspect an empty house in west point which according to what they've heard has become a new place. is almost like renewed gang newspaper
11:54 pm
yeah who their enemies are. to rock big block and kirkwood. corsi that assess we're on earlier. do you have the allies you have the home gang. this this actually is then you have sunnydale. it was a group way on the other side of the city who. clicked out with or ally with. the officers combed the neighborhood street by street they disagree with most people who think that the violence only stands from personal rivalries. we have a lot of photos of these guys they're wearing rags and it looks you know if you don't know any better you think you're in south central los angeles and there were rags to one of the gang signs you got photos a guy stolen up a w.
11:55 pm
and they got their rag. they've got tattoos all over miss a big block to live for we all we get i mean at some point they take a leap from just being a neighborhood or turf people are saying hey these are neighborhoods or these are sets because they don't really want to recognize that their kids belong to a gang at the gangs are present because that brings up negative connotations and why the kids end up getting into it there's a lot of reasons a lot of these families are broken so kids are joining gangs because they want to feel like they belong to something they're looking for that sense of family that they're not getting at home. it's sad to see these really really nice views spoiled by all the shootings and killings up here. the situation is so extreme that a senseless concrete barrier has been put up dividing the neighborhood and two for the kids here crossing it can be fatal. they're at the point now where their backs
11:56 pm
are against a wall and they're like you know i want out and it's mainly the older guys the younger guys they're still kind of caught up in it but the older guys and when i say older we're talking twenty three and up those guys are saying we want out we want jobs we want to do something better with our lives because this is taking us nowhere except at a cemetery. in. the city's black community has got a done ten big celebration the first san francisco bay area wrapped festival music's been key to the success with many of the young people in ghettos one of them is a big surprise j.t. has brought kids from his neighborhood with them from both harbor road and west point. that you're not in oxford street legal fees right now is going to get this thing. bringing the two
11:57 pm
factions together is risky as one believes shows. down. little. the singer has a tough time but he manages to keep the peace perhaps this festival will serve to give some hope to the district hopeless youth but the ghetto and crime are always a part of rap music. it's time for the awards the winning groups take over the stage. j. . eighteen is getting ready to appear with his boys his latest cd has also won
11:58 pm
a prize. winning. the first place if. no here for. a. second. it's time for the redirection project graduation ceremony at san francisco's city hall. the teachers and brothers against guns give speeches full of hope they've given these youngsters an opportunity and there's nothing more that they can do. one by one the graduates are given their diplomas by sean richard this is the second try seven i did the twenty one people in last year's course still have jobs
11:59 pm
will show managed to increase the rate this year. they owe everything else to beat the streets where. the streets are a big it was too much they could get was no poorer without me we could have got more but i know it was too much when it was enough basically enough to help us get through what we got to do and teach us about life we never heard a word they are our success. but the success or the like. and its determination in your will power words full of optimism six months later three of these young men were in jail lost his job four months later. doing his twelve votes and his body. acquitted he couldn't appear in the last photograph because he was killed before it was taken that you think that quote we don't think that. he killed.
