Ross Kemp brings you face to face with the Gang Lords of the Earth...
"Ross Kemp on Gangs" is one of the most shocking shows to ever be shown on television (National Geographic Channel). Mr. Kemp is one brave soul. In every episode he travels to a different part of the world that is infested by gang violence. Forget what you see in the movies, this is the harsh reality of gang life. The mainstream gang talk in music (50 Cent/Rick Ross/Gucci Mane) is candy coated gloss. After watching this show I don't think anyone would want to be a gangster, however it seems like one is forced into such a position in life. Even the gangsters Mr. Kemp interviews are down to earth in some way or another and explain how it's a game of survival: Kill or be Killed.
Ross Kemp goes face to face with many gang lords, showing some serious courage when in the face of death. That is indeed the most interesting factor in this show, which is how close he really gets to these "Dons". Some of these criminals open up and explain why they do it, while others hesitate due to the fact that Mr. Kemp could be a "rat" or leak to the local police authorities. It's all very intriguing.
This show will open your eyes to a harsh reality you have only seen in movies, which is an understatement. Check it out... Ross Kemp knows his Gangs and isn't afraid to look them in the eyes.
