California Lawmaker To Hold Crime Sessions, Summit


California Assemblyman Mervyn Dymally (D-Compton) will hold discussions in the state’s major urban centers that will culminate in a summit in Sacramento next summer with the goal of reducing homicide and violent crime.

The Los Angeles Times said Dymally discussed his plans during the Inglewood Drug and Violence Prevention Coalition’s annual “Call for Peace.” He will organize round-table talks in the state’s largest cities with local residents, officials from law enforcement, education, corrections, the National Rifle Association and other groups.

“We are going to have a thorough investigation on this culture of violence we have created,” said Delia Council of the Inglewood Drug and Violence Prevention Coalition.
