Schoolchildren's safety comes first

January 11, 2007

Re "2 teen boys hit in drive-by shooting outside Grant High in Van Nuys," Jan. 10

I am deeply concerned about my 15-year-old granddaughter, who attends Grant High School. She heard shots ring out today as she was leaving school and is traumatized by what took place. It is outrageous that gang members are driving around our streets and shooting at our children. Wherever this happens, it cannot be tolerated! How can we force our children to deliberately expose themselves to this extreme danger each day? Mr. Mayor, please stop playing politics with our school system and get rid of these gangs immediately.
