Barbara Davidson, Los Angeles Times - December 29, 2010
Pastor Wyman Jones of Sweet Hill Baptist Church in South Los Angeles carries a wooden cross through the Nickerson Gardens public housing complex to protest gang violence. Nickerson Gardens had seen a sustained lull in violence, but in 2009 and 2010 the area erupted once again, claiming the lives of at least six men. Police have said the violence was linked to a civil war of sorts within the Bounty Hunters, for years the dominant gang in Nickerson Gardens, apparently over drug sales.
