Gangland tells the insider story of some of America's most notorious street gangs. We learn how they have shaped their times and affected the neighbourhoods under their influence.
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 the lives of these gangs, from those who live within them to the agencies who work to stop them.
