The inside story on America’s most notorious gangs...
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.
Season 1 reveals the deadly history and identifiers — the rituals, symbols, territory, leadership and favored crimes — of 13 notorious gangs, from the heroin kingpins of Harlem to today’s most insidious group, the terrifying MS-13. From urban battle grounds to suburban back yards, these highly structured and lethal organizations infect every level of society and are a pressing and little-understood threat to our communities.
