The peaceful neighborhoods surrounding America's cities conceal a deadly secret: a highly organized criminal group that will do anything to become this country's top gang.
- Discover the rich and bloody history of gangs in America, from the Colonies to the present.
- THE HISTORY CHANNEL® ventures deep into uncharted regions of the criminal underworld.
- Tens of thousands of MS-13 gang members live anonymously throughout America's suburbs.
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!"
You rat, you die.
In 2003, the body of a pregnant, teenaged informant was found along the banks of Virginia's bucolic Shenandoah River. She'd been repeatedly stabbed so brutally her head was nearly severed. Brenda Paz was one of 3,000 Mara Salvatrucha, or MS-13, members in the Washington, DC area and had been supplying authorities with first-hand accounts of MS-13?s operations.
This increasingly violent and fast-growing gang operates from the sleepy, middle-class suburbs. Spreading from their roots in 70s inner-city Los Angeles, MS-13 has covertly invaded nearly every community in the nation and claims nearly 100,000 members worldwide. Living alongside law-abiding citizens, MS-13 members operate a highly organized campaign of violence and criminality with the ultimate goal of dominating the American underworld.
GANGLAND takes you deep into the deadly suburban world of MS-13.
