Gang-on-gang violence has always been a problem, but lately it's taken on a far more sinister edge.
- Discover the rich and bloody history of gangs in America, from the Colonies to the present.
- Gang violence is up, and the deadly battle lines are being drawn right down the racial divide.
- THE HISTORY CHANNEL® ventures deep into uncharted regions of the criminal underworld.
GANGLAND boldly shines a light on the darkest corners of America, where criminals live by their own laws and brutality reigns. Literally billions of dollars - and tens of thousands of lives - pass through the vast gang network, which effectively forms a shadow economy rivaling a small nation's. Unprecedented access to the inner workings of America's most feared gangs, coupled with incisive historical analysis and conversations with law enforcement specialists, paints the most accurate and compelling portrait of GANGLAND on television. You can't get closer to the truth of America's gangs without getting "jumped-in!"
In southwest LA's Harbor Gateway neighborhood, gang violence has exploded. Earlier this year, Latino gang members were arrested for shooting and killing a 14-year-old African-American girl simply because of her race. L.A. Mayor Antonio Villaraigosa succinctly stated: "Enough's enough."
This teenage girl's death is believed to be part of a larger RACE WAR started by Los Angeles' Hispanic gangs. Jockeying for turf with rival groups, they figured the easy way to secure territory was through ethnic cleansing. African-American gangs have started to respond in kind. It's part of a trend that has lead to all out gang warfare on the city's streets.
"Colors" has taken on a new meaning in GANGLAND and will only lead to one thing: RACE WAR.
