New book aims at keeping kids out of gangs
Ralph Burgess is the author of a book series for young readers aimed to keep them out of gangs. "Cool Calvin's No Bandanas for Me: Staying Gang Free" is the second of this growing series that Burgess hopes to use as a tool to show students the reality of gang life. Police departments and schools across the nation are having to deal with younger and younger kids searching for acceptance and finding it in the false sense of security gangs offer.
