How many other cities are both of these gangs in and what type of weight do they carry?
In Houston back in the late 80s, 90s and 00s we had La Raza Folks and Latin Disciples who were also Folks. I haven't heard much from either since I came home but I been chilling so they probably still got a presence. I know La Raza Folks used to be over 500-600 deep in Southwest Houston. As far as Latin Disciples they easily had a couple hundred at the least...mostly on the Northside.
Both gangs were Folks gang down here but the LD's just claimed LD...they didn't claim Maniac Latin Disciples. Not sure if either gang was plugged or copy cat, trying to get some feedback on it....there was also a La Raza 13 that used to beef with them..so same gang name one Folks the other 13.
