This episode examines Lisette Lee, the supposed Samsung heiress who lived a mysterious life of privilege and luxury until her arrest for narcotics trafficking in 2010. The product of an illicit multi-national love affair, Lee was adopted at a young age and moved from South Korea to Beverly Hills. It was there that she molded and shaped various personalities to manipulate those around her. She went to great lengths to get what she wanted; allegedly kidnapping men, setting up surveillance, and wiretapping "team LL:", her crew of minions. The team was formed after Lee became romantically entangled with David Garrett, a street level drug dealer who partnered with her to move mass amounts of marijuana. Lisette chartered a private jet, Garrett got the drugs, and the squad flew 7,000 lbs of pot from LA to Columbus over 14 different trips.
Following a deadly brawl between the Hells Angels and Mongols Motorcycle Clubs in 2002, Cavazos came to national prominence. During his reign as the Mongols' president, he expanded the club's membership by recruiting local street thugs with affiliations to the Mexican Mafia. Federal agents say Doc's aim was to take on the Hells Angels and run a massive criminal enterprise engaged in drug running, murder and intimidation. But Doc's power grab came with consequences. During his time in charge, agents with the Bureau of Alcohol, Tobacco, Firearms and Explosives infiltrated the club and piled on the evidence for a federal racketeering indictment. Many Mongols say Cavazos' hunger for fame would be his ultimate downfall and drive him to turn on his brothers.
A good editor has a keen eye for truth and the ability to strip away extraneous noise to let that truth shine through. In the pages of newspapers and magazines, female editors have spoken out on weighty issues like abolition and women's suffrage, and given us the literally weighty September issues of Vogue. Mary Ann Shadd Cary gave a voice to freed slaves in the weekly Provincial Freemen, Susan B. Anthony’s newspaper Revolution fueled just that, and Dorothy Day’s The Catholic Worker tackled important topics in an effort to improve society as a whole. Television’s 60 Minutes set new standards for investigative journalism, thanks to the Emmy-winning work of Lesley Stahl. From abolitionists and suffragettes to the religious and the radical, these female editors told their stories and shaped our worldview.
