Crime rates in San Jose jumped into the double digits this year. In one week alone in August, the city saw five people shot and wounded and seven murders. Police say about half those were gang-related. Officials are blaming the jump on department cuts and fewer police. We talk with San Jose's police chief and the head of the gang prevention task force about the violence in San Jose and what can be done about it.
