ABC chose violence of a domestic nature. Pierre Thomas (subscription required) kicked off Mean Streets, a series on an upsurge in urban teenage gangs. He obtained undercover FBI video from East Orange NJ where Tewhan Massacre Butler of the iiBloods tried to attract new teenage recruits: "I am facing the rest of my life in prison for every one of you all."
