New York's new gang problem

Tensions are high in New York's West Village. Residents have long complained of gangs hanging out on street corners, harassing pedestrians and disrupting local businesses.

While police have been called in to investigate, some residents have threatened to take matters into their own hands. "I can hear these guys right outside my window," said Rosemary Bella of Bleecker Street, "and after 15 years, I would like to shoot them all dead."

Just who are these hoodlums who have the community in such an uproar? Doo-wop singers.

This is apparently a big problem. President of the Central Village Block Association, Dorothy Green, complained that she has to endure listening to about 700 hours of doo-wop a year.

Oh, yeah. I can see why everyone is outraged. These guys are as bad as those who peddle 20-ounce sodas to kids.
