Another Criminal on L.A.'s Payroll

For over a year now, the NRA and I have been highlighting the problems with the anti-gang initiatives paid for by Los Angeles taxpayers. The conviction of Hector "Big Weasel" Marroquin, a high-ranking gang leader who also ran an anti-gun program paid for by city funds, was one case we highlighted, but the fact is there are plenty of low-level gang members drawing a paycheck with the help of taxpayer dollars.

The latest is 30-year old Marlo "Bow-Wow" Jones, a contract employee with the city-funded Unity One anti-gang program. Jones was arrested recently and charged with a Jan. 5 robbery in which a male victim was beaten and choked in his hotel room and stripped of his jewelry.

Jones has been terminated from the anti-gang program, but he never should have been there to begin with. Maybe it's time for the city of Los Angeles to take another look at paying "former" gang members to run anti-gang programs.
