New Kentucky Bill Cracks Down On Criminal Gang Activity

Posted: Updated:
Kentucky -

Opponents of a bill aimed at cracking down on criminal gang activity in Kentucky are hoping lawmakers will consider voting no on the legislation. Those opponents say the measure would unfairly target minority neighborhoods, putting more people in prison for longer sentences. The bill, backed by law enforcement, would make it a felony for adults to recruit young gang members and require them to serve most of their sentences. It could come up for a senate vote as soon as tomorrow.
