LA Gang Tours
I did not see this posted anywhere and also was not quite sure where to post it so I hope this is okay.
For $65, tourists get peek at Los Angeles gangland amid cease-fire negotiated among rivals.
LOS ANGELES (AP) -- Only miles from the scenic vistas and celebrity mansions that draw sightseers from around the globe - but a world away from the glitz and glamour - a bus tour is rolling through the dark side of the city's gang turf.
Passengers paying $65 a head Saturday signed waivers acknowledging they could be crime victims and put their fate in the hands of tattooed ex-gang members who say they have negotiated a cease-fire among rivals in the most violent gangland in America.
Also, here is a link for this group that is offering these tours:

When I was young and bold and strong,
The right was right, the wrong was wrong.
With plume on high and flag unfurled,
I rode away to right the world.
But now I’m old - and good and bad,
Are woven in a crazy plaid.
I sit and say the world is so,
And wise is s/he who lets it go.
