Watch Outlaw Empires
- 1 Season
"Outlaw Empires" takes an in-depth look at criminal gangs that have created massive networks and drug trafficking. From gangs that shoot it out in the inner city areas, to the vast network of prison gangs that can incite riots at anytime. This program take an unwavering look at the underbelly of criminal activity in America in the 21st cenutry. Outlaw biker gangs have long held the title of the baddest dudes on the road, because of the illegal enterprises they embark on to get money. More often than not, some of the these gangs will have bloody turf wars to decide who gets what in terms of profits. Many of the gangs who are not incarcerated have stockpiles of weapons that are purchased with money from drug sales. This is nothing new since the Crips have done this starting in the early 1980's in Southcentral Los Angeles, California. Immigrant gangs like the Nuestra Familia have their origins from the small communities of immigrants that came from Central America starting in the 1970's to the west coast of the United States. No matter how these gangs get started, it is up to law enforcement to help keep these gangs from killing each other and also innocent people that might get caught in the crossfire. Today many law enforcement agencies have special divisions that are dedicated to monitoring gang activity in many major cities in the United States. Police and Corrections officers often get information from confidential sources for leads during an investigation. These individuals risk their lives and quite possibly the lives of their families to give out information. There are high stakes at play everyday depending on the crimes that involve drugs or even prostitution. On either side of the law it can be a deadly game that has no winners, just victims. The film crews that have filmed this footage took great care for their personal safety to get the shots they needed to make this program. This program is for mature viewers and viewer discretion is strongly advised.
