No-Go Zones – World’s Toughest Places


No-Go Zones – World’s Toughest Places – Ghost Town, South Africa | Dangerous Places Documentary

Behind Bars: South Cotabato Jail, Philippines:

Ghost Town – one of the toughest and most dangerous neighborhoods in the world. The deadly no-go area is ruled by the “Ugly Americans”, one of the toughest street gangs in Cape Town. Whoever enters their territory must fear his life. No police or ambulances will help one there. Drug trading, addiction, violence, shootouts and prostitution.

All that is led by a boss who rules with an iron fist, Dimes. He controls his no-go zone and survived seventeen murder attempts. In his headquarter, the “White House”, he runs his drug business and orders punishments from beating or torture to execution.

Killing machine Anis and knife master Bousie are two of the most loyal henchmen and toughest members of the “Ugly Americans” street gang. Both are cold hard killers and lead the group. They use drugs and the power of weapons to defend their patch – right down to the death.

In and around Ghost Town everybody is struggling for the next drug kick. The prostitute Nikita is a addict. She takes crystal meth on a daily basis. To get the money and take care of her son she works on the streets. Her last resort? Sex in exchange for money.

In an attempt to bring the situation under control a new special unit was recently introduced: the “Anti Gang Unit”. Ninety-five team members are now investigating the toughest gangs. Working with undercover cops and informers. At the top of their most-wanted list is a member of the “Americans” gang, wanted for a brutal murder.
