What we aim to do is to broaden public understanding of the realities, turbulence and horrors which are imposed upon general society via the machinations of organized crime.
There are a lot of television shows, movies and novels in circulation which portray the lives of criminals, and especially those who member Mafias and Cártels to be glamorous, littered with an abundance of cash. Filled to the brim with sexual satisfaction, drugs, gold plated weaponry and power.
This perceived reality results in the normalization of violence and the inadvertent support of criminal strategy which leaves many of us ignorant to the true reality. Organized crime wreaks utter havoc upon the territories it has managed to gain majority control of.
Organized crime is not pretty, objectively we know this. Many of us are well aware that criminals are not often expected to live long lives, nor quiet ones. Their existence is tumultuous by nature, they make it this way by design.
However, what we do not often consider is how crime affects the innocent and the systems which are meant to keep it in check. In an attempt to understand this, we will spend most of our time focusing on the realm of Mexico - which has become a violent battleground for Cártel control and gang violence. We will examine the low to mid level players involved in the various organizations which operate there, as well as the ways in which they have come to manipulate the system they exist within.
