Los Angeles Police Chief William J. Bratton says he is assigning more than 200 officers to a crackdown on the city`s most dangerous street gangs, even as officials acknowledged that their plan of attack was controversial. "Eleven gangs and their 800 members committed over 1,700 violent crimes last year," Bratton said. "That`s 6% of all the violent crime in the city. It makes sense to focus our very limited resources on these criminals."
