Just finished Ioan’s Grillo’s new book, Gangster Warlords, which provides an introduction into Latin America’s drug underworld.

Grillo’s book focuses on four areas: Brazil’s favelas (particularly around Rio de Janeiro), Jamaica (yes, technically not part of Latin America, but as Grillo points out, suffers from many similar issues as its Latin neighbors), Central America (the “Northern Triangle,” i.e., Guatemala, Honduras, and El Salvador), and Michoacan. (which Grillo also covered in his book El Narco).

Within each of these areas, Grillo looks at specific gangs, such as Red Commando, Shower Posse, MS13, and the Knights Templar, as well as the circumstances and reasons for their existence and character. A good primer on issues relating to Latin America’s drug gangs, e.g., the Central American refugee crisis.

Just watched this movie and I must say it good, and give us a lot of thoughts on how hard the Mexican people to cross the border…. With also about the famous Mexican gangster MS13 this movie is so scary but it’s worth watching… It’s in Spanish but there’s English subtitles #sinnombre #ms13 #movie #mexican #goodmovie
