History Channel Documentaries-Gangland - Season 3

The Gangland series tells the inside stories of some of America's most notorious street gangs. We learn how they've shaped their times and affected the neighborhoods that they controlled. From the destruction wrought by the heroin kingpins in Harlem of the 1970s to today's most dangerous gang MS-13, which has spread out from the inner city to infect unexpected turf --suburban communities--gangs have a rich yet deadly history. They usually start out as a form of protection for their members and community but then grow predatory as they feed on the very people that they purport to defend. With exclusive interviews and rarely seen footage, this is a raw look at life inside these gangs--from those who live it to the agencies that are working to stop them.

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.
