Pablo Escobar's Former Employee Goes Inside Peru's Underworld [VICE Educational Documentary]

Pablo Escobar was the mastermind of drug trafficking and narco terrorism in Colombia during the 1980s. He transformed the city of Medellin into the cocaine capital of the world, and pioneered a model that almost every major criminal organization would later adopt.

Countries around the globe are still grappling with the aftermath of Escobar's reign 20 years after his death, from the hired killers he trained as his army of underage hitmen to the remote cocaine labs and clandestine air strips in the jungles of Peru helping feed the world's hunger for coke.

In part two of our series, a former hitman for Pablo Escobar leads us through the criminal underworld in Lima, Peru. Elmo Molina, now a reformed man, seeks for young gangmembers who he helps to leave the criminal path in a way to redeem himself from his past serving the Medellin Cartel.
