Gang Unit Confiscates Weapons

After noticing an upswing in gang activity in 2006, the Livermore (Calif.) Police Department's gang unit began more targeted efforts to keep the city's illegal gang activities under control. In this clip produced by the Contra Costa Times, officers confiscate a baseball bat painted with "XIII" for 13, which refers to the letter 'M' (13th in the alphabet) to pledge allegience to the Mexican Mafia.
