With names like La Gran Familia, Tiny Rascals, Satan Disciples, the Crips and Bandidos, these gangs can be found from Atlanta to Fresno, Chicago, Minneapolis, New Orleans, and even Salt Lake City. They rob, kill and terrorize, shaping their times and their turf. HISTORY™ infiltrates unbelievably dangerous terrain to provide exclusive interviews and rarely seen footage. Both former and current members offer solid insight into why gangs exist, how they operate, their increasingly destructive methods and the alarming rate at which they’re spreading to suburban and rural areas. It’s chilling, it’s raw, and most of all, it’s real.
GANGLAND: THE COMPLETE SEASON THREE gains access to 12 of the country’s most dangerous gangs on 3 DVDs.
