Summary:
Gangs have always been around. But the romanticized versions of gang life popularized by movies like West Side Story and The Wild One have been replaced by widespread concern over increasingly violent and powerful groups like Los Angeles's notorious Crips and Bloods. Go to the front lines of the battle to contain one of the most pervasive and troubling elements of crime in America today. Influential and organized, gangs have spread beyond their traditional base in the cities across the nation, bringing with them a street culture of violence and anger. Trace the origins of gangs through the decades to see how they have evolved. Meet former members who reveal what gang life is like, and the experts who are trying to stop their spread. See what is being done to get and keep kids out of gangs, and get a crash course on gang culture, from colors and tattoos to hand signals.
