Drive-by shootings are almost by definition anonymous - there are no fingerprints, no fibers, no hairs, nor any other telltale clues typical of most crime scenes. There is usually no hard evidence beyond ballistics and a car description so generic it is virtually useless.In Drive-By, Gary Rivlin penetrates the anonymity of one such incident and creates an extraordinary portrait of the people entangled in it. He takes us behind the headlines, and through bold investigative reporting, finds the individuals so often left out of the story. In this real-life narrative, we meet the teens who, on Sunday, the eighth of July, were involved in a scuffle over a bicycle, and on the ninth became murderers and victims. By presenting the story of this murder in human terms, Rivlin challenges the stereotypes and indifference that allow the problem of inner-city violence to escalate.

story of a drive-by shooting in Oakland, ca in the 90's; goes into a lot of detail about the shooters, and victims and the families and friends and also the economic reality of being black and living in public housing; also highlights the role of drugs and the sad and tragic state of the educational system or lack thereof in the lives of the people who live in these areas.

A beautiful book that helped me a to understand the complicated situation that led to the development of Oakland and the violence that was a huge element that came with it. a great partner to the movie: the house i live in. smart and journalistic as well as a kind dose of the human emotions and ripple affect of a drive by shooting
