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!"
One man crossed them, so his entire family had to die.
Five bodies, riddled with bullets, in a small apartment on the East Side of Los Angeles. Among the dead are a five-year-old boy and an infant girl, each shot execution-style in the head and chest. The mother and father of the children lie beside them on the floor. The target of the hit was the family's patriarch, Anthony "Dido" Moreno. Dido had dropped out of one of California's most notorious prison gangs and this was his payback. The gang he deserted was the Mexican Mafia.
This and countless other equally tragic scenes are the legacy of this brutal underworld organization. Since it's inception in the 1950's the "Black Hand" has been the prison system's most active shot-callers, controlling thousands of "foot soldiers" on the streets of Southern California. Law enforcement officials estimate that 300 homicides per year in LA County have some connection to the Mexican Mafia.
In this exceptional episode GANGLAND breaches the wall of silence to take you into the deadly and highly-structured Mexican Mafia.
