Editorial Reviews

They rob, kill, and terrorize, and they ve left their violent mark on American history. Delve deep into the rich and often brutal bloodlines of gangs in America, from La Gran Familia to the Tiny Rascals, Satan s Disciples to the Bandidos, as Season 3 of Gangland goes to the darkest corners of America to infiltrate some of the most dangerous terrain in the world. Exclusive interviews, rarely seen footage, and unique access to the lives of both former and current gang members provide a 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. Take a raw look at life inside these gangs from those who live it and the agencies that are working to stop them as Gangland reveals the most violent and influential gangs of our time. Other gangs featured in Season 3 include Los Solidos, the Crips and the Zetas.

Very well made series. Each episode is focused on a different gang, inclusing interviews from current members, former members, aswell as the law enforcement agencys attached to investigating that gang. Definately some parts that may be hard to watch for some people, it is an understatement to say that this contains violence. My only 2 issues with this show is that it was made for people that watch 1 episode at a time, if you plan to sit down and watch a few in a row, you will find it gets repetative. Aswell, the first season is the best one by far, contains all the major gangs, the show kind of goes downhill from there, but thats not to say it gets worse, just not as good as the first season. I grew up in a very gang dominated city and throught i knew a fair ammount about gangs, apparently i was wrong. This series is a definate eye-opener.

Gangland: Season Three, brings to light street conflicts im American
cities that is beyond the comprehension of anyone, in a brave and
fearless manner that is unmatched elsewhere, beyond the gruesome of
what is seen even, in the final moments of Taxi Driver, for example.

This series, in no shape, way or form glorifies conflict. Rather, it
builds on interviews with key individuals who decided that the
lifestyle wasn't for them after experiencing it first-hand for a
length of time and concerned about it potential as a livelihood in
the medium to long term.

In the case of LA GRAN FAMILIA (LGF), based in Atlanta, GA, the
founding of the group was noble at first, opposing various
injustices and humiliation from school bullies. At some point, this
goal changed to the pursuit of status, gold chains, glamorous rims,
Mercedes Benz cars, hotties, money and the exhilaration of
instilling fear in others generally, and competing with and
defeating local rival gangs specifically.

About 5 years before the opening of the Atlanta Olympics and
afterwards - a time during when the demand for manual labor in
public works projects was high, as well as the remuneration - a
massive influx of aliens from Mexico and Central America occurred,
increasing it 10 fold locally, and the general population of
everyone in metro Atlanta doubling as well.

Along with a much higher number of wealthy laborers came a much
higher demand for narcotics and underground services, including
cocaine, meth, ecstasy, marijuana.

seriously? 'all the trappings o' a gang'? just cause a couple o' pinheads choose to classify a group o' people as a gang doesn't necessarily make the claim true...'subculture' is a sociologically more accurate description. besides which, police villifying hard-core kids - who were ALWAYS 'on the cop's radar' - goes all the way back to the very beginning o' the hc scene, and is well documented

this series has - via sheer repetition - effectively established the hallmarks o' gang behavior :
- territorial disputes: only, fsu doesn't squabble over turf, nor do they tag, throw up gang signs, or roam the streets deliberately looking for trouble from other gangs. they're just kids who go to shows to listen to music and let off some steam
- drug trafficking and use: meth (and earlier coke) largely finance all actual gang activities vs. straight-edge kids who choose not to drink or do drugs...steroids? ok, that one is actually believable, however despite being illegal, can hardly be compared to substances like crack !!!
- ultra-violence: this one typically involves knives and - especially - guns, resulting in particularly large body counts; to include xecuting innocent civilians. meanwhile, fsu members still believe in the concept of settling disputes with their fists - NOT w/ knives or guns...hey, can anyone actually tell me just what is the difference between and fsu brawl and the brawls we xpect/celebrate every week in our professional sports?! christ, just look at hockey and tell me that's NOT swarming! and policing up the scene o' neo-nazis was actually a good thing - and i doubt any honest cop would even dispute the means on that one!
- oh, and did anyone notice that the boston cop said NO fsu incidents in 2 years?!

Awesome season. I absolutely love Gangland! A great buy! There are three discs for this set with between five and four episodes on each. I wish there were more episodes though.
