This may be old to some here but it is new to me - it's actually a 1997 article

I was sent this link about the development of new myths amid the street children of Miami. Apart from being heartbreaking I also found it fascinating http://www.miaminewtimes.com/1997-06-05/news/myths-over-miami/1

Woah, this is...so many things.
Makes me wonder what kind of world we created where the only hope of lost children are desperate, fighting angels.

The stories would make up a great movie, like you put 'Dogma', 'God's Army', 'Constantine' and some more in a mixer.
And yet this stories fit the world those children have to live in and thus they ring some astonishing amounts of truth.

I heard about that one a while back.  I dont know what the whole story is, but apparently the reporter made a lot of it up.

The material is good.
