The 2 part series investigated the growing problem of gangs in the affluent suburban county of Westchester, right outside of New York. Despite the median price for a house resting at $700,000, violent drug gangs such as the Bloods, Crips, MS13, Vatos Locos, and Latin Kings have integrated themselves into the community. The city hierarchy refused to acknowledge the problem even with a rash of gang related shootings and stabbings.
