So Lomas is giving the press a late holiday present by putting on a special, media-only tour in an effort to accommodate all the scribes. The media tour will probably happen Jan. 10 or 11, he states.
Lomas says that members of the press who take the tour will be asked if their resulting materials can be used in a gang documentary he's been working on.
Gang truces have been worked out to facilitate a safe route for the tour, organizers state. It will go to L.A. County Jail, the Los Angeles River bed, Skid Row, Florencia 13 gang turf in South L.A., old Black Panther Party stomping grounds, and the Jordan Downs housing projects in Watts.
