    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.

    um, yeah, we just entered the age our ancestors warned about

    shouldn't this be prohibited since they're sorta profiting from crime?

    wonder if the people who signed a waiver could actually read English

    also wonder if they saw anything that was worth $65

    Why would anyone be interested in taking such a tour? Better yet, why would anyone be willing to pay any gang member for illegal activity? The idea sounds about as exciting as paying the garbage man to take me on a tour of a land fill.
