More Bang for your Tourist Buck

How long you figure it'll be before somebody comes away with a sucking chest wound?

-- LOS ANGELES -- Alfred Lomas, 45, a former gang member and the creator of the tour ($65, lunch included), said this drive-by was about educating people on city life, while turning any profits into microloans and other initiatives aimed at providing gang members jobs.

But aside from its unusual logistical challenges — the liability waiver describes the tour as “inherently dangerous” and warns of the risk of death — the venture has also generated debate about its appropriateness.
Hmmm... I'm guessing a hit on the crackpipe, or kibitzing with the "ho's" is extra.

Two words... freak show.
