- THE HISTORY CHANNEL® ventures deep into uncharted regions of the criminal underworld.
- When the Bloods came east an already dangerous criminal world ignited in a deadly firestorm.
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!"
Things were bad enough in the prisons and streets of New York in the early 90s. But thanks to the inspired leadership of Omar "OG Mack" Portee, things soon got a whole lot worse.
An inmate of Rikers, Portee felt the need to formalize a gang structure that could match the dominant Latin Kings, who ruled NY Metro jails and neighborhoods. His creation: United Bloods Nation. The result: an unprecedented scourge of criminal activity and violence. UBN, famed as much for its random brutality as its adherence to West Coast gang tradition, became a uniquely dangerous force both in and out of area jails.
GANGLAND exposes the highly structured organization of this nascent gang and tracks its association with other West Coast-affiliated sets, like the Double ii Bloods of East Orange, NJ.
While other gangs specialize in drug dealing, extortion or robbery, the UBN stock-in-trade is violence, which makes this group a top priority for authorities and a major concern for law-abiding citizens. In this gripping episode, GANGLAND follows law enforcement efforts to dismantle the gang and break connections to its West Coast roots.
