How One Man Survived to Testify Against a Machete Killer

Witness against MS-13

Chris says much of the violence in Brentwood could have been prevented if authorities had cared more about the gangsters living within the community before people started getting murdered, including two teenagers—a 13- and 15-year-old—in the months leading up to Sandler's murder.

"They were everywhere in Brentwood—they hang out in front of the junior high and hit on 13-year-old girls. They'd roll up 10 deep and try and fight people, and you have to fight back. If you get labeled a punk in Brentwood, you're done. But the cops didn't care until people started dying."
