In the chaos of last year's earthquake, 4,500 of Haiti's most violent criminals escaped from the National Penitentiary. In this clip from "Battle for Haiti," coming Jan. 11, FRONTLINE gains unique access to the police units trying to hunt down the escaped prisoners and follows as police and U.N. forces hunt down a gang that has been terrorizing the slum neighborhood of La Saline.
