[edit] Information

They rob, kill, and terrorize, and they've left their violent mark on our nation's history. This is the world of Gangland. The Gangland series tells the insider story 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. Delve deep into the rich and often brutal bloodlines of gangs across America, from New York City to Chicago, Houston to Nashville, as SEASON FIVE of GANGLAND paints a violently accurate and compelling portrait of gang life in America, and goes to the darkest corners of the country. Exclusive interviews, rarely seen footage, and unique access to the lives of gangsters provide 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. This is a raw look at life inside these gangs—from those who live it and the agencies that are working to stop them. GANGLAND: SEASON FIVE gains access to 10 of the country's most dangerous gangs.
