Thursday, August 18: The Gangs of Zion
By Doug Fabrizio
Salt Lake City, UT – Pacific Islanders are one of Utah's fastest growing ethnic groups. But coming to the state, many Polynesian youth find themselves searching for identity in Mormon country. That search often leads to gangs -- and to ward houses -- simultaneously. Journalist Tim Sullivan and photographer JT Thomas explored the issues in the High Country News article, "The Gangs of Zion." Along with Metro Gang Unit officer Cliff Chase, they'll join Doug Fabrizio to talk about the seemingly unstoppable cycle of violence.
