""There is no reason young children should die on our Bay Area freeways," Alameda County District Attorney Pamela Price said in a statement Friday. "This behavior is absolutely unacceptable. We will not stand for gun violence and these three defendants will be held accountable for their despicable actions.""

Pamela Price trying to sound "tough on crime" - but revealing herself as something else. It is absolutely unacceptable and despicable to refer to deliberate criminal activity where innocent people were injured and/or killed as "gun violence". Will Price find a way to plea bargain these defendants and "prosecute" the firearms instead?
