Favela Tours, U.S. Edition

Renee has an interesting post on gang tours in Los Angeles. Apparently, the L.A. gangs themselves are playing a major role in organizing these tours. Which is bizarre. From the perspective of people living in those neighborhoods, you do what you have to do to make money. But the people who sign up for these tours are really reprehensible. Like the Rio favela tours, this is totally disgusting and probably populated in part by Europeans hoping to score drugs.
