Colombia's Homeless City & Portuguese Homecoming

Colombia - Homeless City (Michelle Begue) - When Bogota's new mayor Enrique Penalosa took office in early 2016, he vowed to take down crime in the Colombian capital. One of his first offensives was a raid into the "Bronx." It is the city's most dangerous slum, plagued by drugs, weapons and savage violence.

Mexico's Crime-Free Town

Mexico - Crime free town - Mexico's war on drugs has proven long and brutal. The central state of Michoacan has been hit especially hard, with rival cartels fighting each other for territory AND against onslaughts by the Mexican Army. The violence has led to lawlessness... and a spike in illegal logging. One small town, Cheran, took on all the bad guys and drove them out. Five years later the Purepecha Indian village is still effectively governing itself. Peace reigns in Cheran but villagers say they can never lower their guard.
