The shooting of children coming to and from school had  kept the U.S. in a state of uproar. In urban areas, the term "youth gang violence" often causes the general public to dismiss these shootings as just the infighting of youth from rival street gangs. But is there a more sinister plot behind the urban violence? Activist Wallace "Gator" Bradley discusses the behind the scenes plots to de-stabilize urban communities by adults who want to keep young people fighting each other, so as to prevent a united effort for economc empowerment.  He discusses the efforts of elder leaders of street organizations to bring the necessary peace to build an economic base in the urban communities.
