Two Gangs is the fifth episode of Season One of Southland.


After a car accident involving alcohol, Detective Daniel Salinger has his gun stolen by gang members. Sammy Bryant and Nate Moretta assist in the search for the weapon without calling it in, only to discover gangs are equipped with enough assault weapons, bullet-proof vests and military tactics to become a powerful urban street army. Elsewhere, still preoccupied with her personal life, Lydia Adams is caught off guard when a man surprises her outside her home.
