The New Times reports on the invisibility of the problem of gang violence. Much more time and attention is devoted to "preventing the next Columbine" than to combating gang violence, even though no shootings have ever happened in Arizona schools . In the meantime, incidents of gang violence continues to rise. One of the key problems cited by the article is poor media attention. Another is an unresponsive legislature and governor.
