Mexico's Drug WarsStreaming Video - 2011
Violence is raging in Mexico as rival drug cartels battle for control of smuggling routes to the U.S. And although President Calder©đn has vowed to end trafficking, the only result appears to be an escalation of the carnage - more than 16,000 killings in three years. Is Calder©đn fighting a losing battle when so much of his nation's economy is tied up in the narcotics trade, corruption is rampant, and the powerful trafficker Chapo Guzman continues to elude capture? This program explores Mexico's drug wars through the human stories behind the statistics: families whose loved ones have disappeared, journalists risking their lives to report on the situation, and balladeers who glorify "El Chapo" in song.
