Rate this:
A cluster of neighborhoods lies in the heart of Southern California, streets that form a grid between concrete ribbons of freeway. Nearly a quarter of its young men will end up in prison. Many other will end up dead. These neighborhoods in South Los Angeles are home to two of the most infamous African-American gangs, the Crips and the Bloods. On these mean streets over the past 30 years, more than 15,000 people have been murdered in an ongoing cycle of gang violence that continues unabated. Here is where America's most bloody and costly outbreaks in civil unrest erupted - not once, but twice, 27 years and just three miles apart. Combines archival footage with in-depth interviews.

I too am a victim of the LA gang culture, I've lost two hours of my life because of this DVD.
Nothing new to see here folks... According to the many testaments given, after forty years it's still basically a "peeing" contest. They say the chest bumping and gun violence is about respect but it's really about the lack of it . Respect for life. To update this 2009 project film- see the city of Chicago.
