This series probes an unprecedented law-enforcement effort to bring down what by many accounts is America's largest street gang, the 30,000-strong Gangster Disciples, and its alleged, multimillion dollar retail drug business. But the series goes well beyond the federal crackdown to explore in detail the gang's extraordinary grip on inner-city neighborhoods in Chicago, its far-reaching drug enterprise, and its bold efforts to gain political power and legitimacy. The series culminates with a surprising profile of the gang's enigmatic leader as he awaits trial. (March 28, April 8, July 15, Sept. 27, Dec. 31, 1996)
