Nov. 11, 2020
CSUSB criminal justice faculty Gisela Bichler and Alexis Norris, with Citlalik Ibarra of the CSUSB Center for Criminal Justice Research, have published “Evolving Patterns of Aggression: Investigating the Structure of Gang Violence during the Era of Civil Gang Injunctions.”
The paper examined the impact of the city of Los Angeles’ use of civil gang injunctions (CGIs) that targeted the most violent street gangs with the aim of suppressing gang violence. “By understanding how crime control efforts shape networked violence,” they wrote, “we are in a better position to develop interventions that minimize displaced aggression, reduce gang conflict, and improve public safety.”

Professor of criminal justice at California State University, San Bernrdino, Brian Levin, told 3AW Mornings the rumors promoted by President Donald Trump and some of his supporters of election irregularities are simply not true.
“As an attorney here, he doesn’t have any palpable claims,” said Levin, who is also an attorney. “What this is, is a political move rather than a legal one. … The biggest issue may not be the legal one, but the social one. Double the number of Republicans than in 2016 say that the election has substantial irregularities, which just is not true. We check all these rumors at our center all the time. They’re not true.”
