The organization of the Gangster Disciples and their battle plans were created by Gangster Discipleâ€™s chief, Larry King Hoover. They modeled this after Chicago's Italian Mafia, the top-down organization has always strived for discipline, respect, and to respect the hierarchy. At the top is the chairman, in this case it is Hoover, and two boards of directors, one controls street operations and the other controls imprisoned gang members. Under the directors are about 15 governors who look over up to 1,500 members each in specific territories. These territories are subdivided between regents and coordinators in which they distribute drugs, oversee operations, manage security forces, and collect profits and dues called street taxes. At the bottom of the organization are enforcers and shorties. Enforcers mete out fines and violations which included punishments ranging from beatings to death for members who break gang rules. Shorties execute drug deals and guard gang territory.
