A Film Shares The Struggle Of Gang Violence

Tyler May (KRCRTV) | April 26, 2013

OROVILLE, Calif. – A new film made by a Butte County public defender illustrates the negative impact gangs have on our local youth.

The film features 40 different families sharing the story of how someone they care about has been affected by gang violence.

Ron Reed decided to make this film because he said with all of the gang violence happening around Butte County, he was looking for a way to get his message out.

“How would you feel when your mother came to prison [to visit you] and she was crying?” said Reed.

That’s a question Reed asks too many times.

He’s been dealing with kids who are involved in gangs for the past 28 years and says he sees kids in Butte County standing in front of a judge far too often.

He decided to make a film called “Lagrimas De Mi Madre: Tears Of My Mother.”
