CLAIM:
Taking on gang life will be one part of a broader outreach to at-risk youth, which involves parents and pastors, coaches and community leaders, in programs ranging from literacy to sports.”
- President Bush’s State of the Union promise to focus on ending gang activity, 2/2/05

FACT:
Law enforcers say Bush budget cuts would hamper anti-gang efforts…[b]ecause it proposed to cut hundreds of millions of dollars in aid to state and local programs that help troubled kids and anti-gang efforts.”
- Knight Ridder, 3/2/05
