Last year, in the chaos of a devastating earthquake thousands of Haiti's worst criminals staged an escape from the National Penitentiary. FRONTLINE examines the uphill fight to rebuild Haiti in the face of deep-rooted corruption and intimidation. The film also offers intimate portraits of the fearful lives many Haitians are living, as the central government and judicial system routinely fail to maintain order.

To understand Haiti, start with this vid

Comments about PBS FRONTLINE: Battle for Haiti: Rebuilding in the Face of Gang Violence and Corruption DVD:

Its : "Must see". In a nutshell: its the gangs.

With street video of police (pistol in hand) picking up gang members, prisoners jailed for over a year without going before a judge, victims of violent crime, peacekeepers that aren't allowed to fight and politicians that remind me of Chicago during Al Capone, its an eye opening and jaw dropping program.

I viewed the PBS program on our TV. A few days later, at a local community college class on "Great Decisions" we viewed a video of an interview of two (supposedly) knowledgeable men. One, Walser, from the Heritage Foundation and one from the Inter-American Dialogue. They spoke comfortably, wearing suits and ties and very probably in the U.S. Never once did they mention the gangs! Don't bother seeing their interview- see the Frontline program "Battle for Haiti". Only then can you start to understand what its like.

Comments about PBS FRONTLINE: Battle for Haiti: Rebuilding in the Face of Gang Violence and Corruption DVD:

If you want to see change in Haiti you need to put in perspective all institutions and focus in the justice system... Haitian people saying in that doc. how they want a FINITO of impunity , social violence, economic dependency and bad cooperations that tend to weak the national engines from everybody. Please helpe Haiti in the right way with dignity.
