Assault rifles, heavy machine guns, artillery, tanks, planes, missiles-with money and the right connections, practically any military weapon can be bought in the global arms market. Where do all those weapons come from? Who is selling them? And how should the U.S. go about defending itself from trigger-happy "customers" looking for American targets? These and other questions are on the table as this timely ABC News program considers the booming business of weapon trafficking. (20 minutes)


#4025 Violence & Society - Violence By and Against Latinos (Run time 28 min.) DVD $89.95

Drug and gang-related killings and other violence have become an everyday fact of life in many urban Latino neighborhoods. This program looks at drive-by shootings and the efforts to help young school-age victims of crime learn to understand their fear and insecurity in their often unpredictable surroundings; traces the effects of the Los Angeles riots on various immigrant groups and the African American community; and looks at the kind of violence that may be the hardest to combat-that which takes place against Latina women in the seclusion of their homes.

In the Ventura School, California's showcase juvenile prison, inmates discuss how drugs and alcohol, lack of family support, and gang involvement have influenced their lives. The program also looks at Adult Time For Adult Crime, a program in Dade County, FL, which sends more kids to adult court than any other county in the U.S. Those who prosecute, defend, and judge young offenders explain how our society has come to the point where the age of the defendant is no longer a mitigating factor-and how 14-year-olds are being sentenced to life behind bars. But there are alternatives to that kind of traditional sentencing of young, violent offenders which are explored in a report from the Last Chance Ranch, a work-study lockup rooted in firm discipline, treatment, and rehabilitation. (56 minutes)

Prof. James Wilson of UCLA is one of the country's leading authorities on crime. In this program, he examines early intervention and incarceration as solutions to crime and violence.

#9373 Violence & Society - Teen Violence (Run time 57 min.) DVD $129.95

In part one of this program, Hedrick Smith reports on how the Alliance of Concerned Men stopped a youth gang war in Benning Terrace, a public housing project in the nation's capital that had become a war zone. Alliance members Tyrone Parker and Rico Rush, former felons with new lives and a new mission, negotiate a truce with the rival gangs that ends the killing and brings hope and new mainstream jobs to former gang members and peace to other residents. In part two, viewers see how the Los Hermanos youth crime prevention program of the Oregon State Penitentiary keeps troubled teenagers in the Pacific Northwest from sliding into a life of crime. Inmates mentor young men in face-to-face sessions inside the prison walls over several months. Begun by Latinos but open to youth of all races, Los Hermanos has touched the lives of 150 teens in a remarkably successful effort to deter them from doing crimes-and doing time. Public dialogues draw out lessons for other communities. (58 minutes)


#9374 Violence & Society - Street Crime (Run time 57 min.) DVD $129.95

In part one of this program, Hedrick Smith explores how the Uptown area of Chicago has dramatically lowered the rate of violent crime despite the ethnic diversity that normally spells turf wars, trouble, conflict, and violence. The critical ingredient is what Harvard social scientist Felton Earls calls social cohesion: a close-knit neighborhood and a strong community spirit developed through one of the highest concentrations of active, mutually supportive civic groups in America. In part two, Mr. Smith profiles the Blue Hills area of Kansas City, Missouri, where ordinary residents organized themselves to drive out drug dealers from their neighborhood and rehabilitate abandoned properties. Working with local churches and law enforcement agencies, these grass-roots heroes showed exemplary courage, ingenuity, and commitment in taking back their own streets from troublemakers. Both success stories are examples for other cities. (57 minutes)


#9375 Violence & Society - Hate Crime (Run time 57 min.) DVD $129.95

Part one of this program shows how the New South has found some answers to an old problem: racial violence-in this case church burnings in the rural flatlands of South Carolina. Law enforcement officials arrest and jail members of the Ku Klux Klan for the church burnings, and one black church files a lawsuit against the KKK and manages to win a remarkable $38-million judgment against the Klan from a racially mixed jury. Standing up to hate and not remaining silent is vital, says Pastor Jonathan Mouzon. "If we keep our mouths shut, it just gives [racists] more power," he says. In part two, Hedrick Smith spotlights a pioneering high school class on tolerance that has changed the social climate at San Clemente High School, where tensions among whites, Latinos, blacks, and Asian-Americans led to brutal violence and killing in the 1990s. Deeply disturbed by this violence among teenagers, teacher Joe Moros devised a curriculum that confronts the causes and effects of intolerance-and 200 students later, his success is visible in the school's notably reduced racial tensions. (58 minutes)


#11401 Violence & Society - Stemming Violence and Abuse (Run time 29 min.) DVD $129.95

The key to reducing violence is understanding its roots. This program offers insights and suggestions that can stop dangerous incidents before they start. Among the topics explored are ways to avoid becoming a victim of campus crime, domestic abuse and the cycle of violence theory as defined by psychologist Lenore Walker, date rape and guidelines for preventing it, the triggers for bias crimes, the factors that influence youth to join gangs, and how to handle sexual harassment in the workplace or at school. (29 minutes)


#32513 Violence & Society - Murder 9 to 5: Violence in the Workplace (Run time 49 min.) DVD $129.95

Each year almost one million violent crimes are committed in the workplace. Some of them are fatal; many could be prevented. In investigative profiles of several infamous incidents, this program combines chilling footage with interviews of assailants and victims to explore the minds and motives of men and women who commit violence against their fellow workers. Forensic psychiatrist and FBI consultant Dr. Park Dietz interviews Richard Farley, currently on death row for killing seven coworkers, and Wanda Rogers, who is serving a life sentence for attempted murder. At the end of the program, Dr. Dietz provides guidelines for the early detection and prevention of workplace violence. Contains offensive language. Viewer discretion is advised. An HBO Production.

#32766 Violence & Society - Legacies of War (Run time 32 min.) DVD $129.95

From munitions stockpiles to psychological trauma, the effects of war linger long after conflict formally ends. This award-winning documentary examines several postwar situations around the world, highlighting ongoing efforts to repair physical, social, and personal damage. Powerful footage captures the dangers of unexploded bombs in Germany and land mines in Mozambique; the reconstruction of Guatemalan society after 36 years of civil war; the plight of refugees in Kosovo; and the difficult task many African villages face of accepting children back into the community who have fought as soldiers. Several experts also comment, including Mary Robinson, UN High Commissioner for Human Rights. A United Nations Production. (32 minutes)


#8930 Violence & Society - Brother of Mine: Youth Violence and Society (Run time 50 min.) DVD $149.95

By the time most children reach the age of 18, they have seen 28,000 murders on TV. This compelling documentary takes a penetrating look at why children are becoming more violent at home, at school, and on the streets. Interviews with educators, police personnel, psychologists, and the youths themselves-both perpetrators and victims-reveal that violence, accepted as an everyday occurrence, has become a reflection of culture, not a contradiction of it. Proactive school-based programs such as group feedback sessions, student mentoring, and parenting classes demonstrate peaceful conflict resolution. (50 minutes)


#35831 Violence & Society - Rage: A Social Analysis (Run time 48 min.) DVD $149.95

Obscenities, screaming matches, fistfights, shootings-these have become almost standard forms of public expression. Why? Can society's violent downward spiral be reversed? This program explores the emotional causes and social dangers of short fuses, linking the pressures of a hard-driving, high-tech world to the prevalence of an easily threatened, easily angered point of view. Breaking its analysis into three parts, the program examines road rage, workplace aggression, and violence among sports spectators, with observations from police officers, anger management counselors, athletes, and recovering "ragers." Nonviolent ways to assert needs and grievances are highlighted. (48 minutes)

Barrow, chair emeritus of the Rainbow PUSH Coalition; Rabbi Andrea London of Beth Emet synagogue; and Karen Danielson, Public Education and Outreach Director for the Muslim American Society, Chicago chapter.
