HISTORY RECAP

 

The Asian Boyz were founded in the early 90s as part of efforts of protection for Southeast Asian immigrants and refugees from the more numerous American gangs in their localities. They formed under the Long Beaches infamous Crip umbrella to be able to continue their legacy and be accepted amongst the mass of gangs at that time, which aided their efforts of protection as the majority of Long Beaches Crip gangs have a strong bond with one another.

 

One of their first altercations was with the East Side Longos, which was and still to this day is a Hispanic Long Beach gang that falls under the Sureno car. The back and forth between the Longos and the ABZ was massive and has resulted in many deaths on both sides of the stick. The altercations with the Longos still continues to this day, they're considered the ABZ's arch-nemesis.

 

The second gang they had a dispute with was the Ocean Side Wah Ching, which was relatively close to their territory. The gang had bad roots because of its ethnic routes, whereas Wah Ching were pure Chinese and/or American born Chinese, and the ABZ were both Cambodian and Vietnamese. Wah Ching labeled ABZ as mutts and FOBs (Fresh Off the Boat), due to Wah Ching's longer endurance in the state, and ABZ's mixed ethnic routes. The shooting of an ABZ gang member, Lea Mek, at a pool hall in El Monte, resulted in a bloody gang war between the Wah Ching and Asian Boyz.

 

Another shootout between the two gangs occurred in San Marino that led to the deaths of two youths at a San Marino High School graduation party in June. After an investigation by the authorities, police claimed that when the Asian Boyz gang members arrived at the party, they noticed that Wah Ching gang members were there, prompting them to leave and return with weapons. At least nine gang members were arrested, and police seized five weapons from homes searched in conjunction with the arrests.

 

The shootings between the two gangs were dubbed "Summer Madness" by the ABZ and have resulted in many deaths from both Wah Ching's and ABZ's side, however, ABZ's body count was significantly higher than Wah Ching's at the time. 

 

The gang establish themselves on the western side of Los Santos and occupy the less wealthy side of Vespucci. An ABZ gang member is identified by the numerous ink on its person, alongside an occasional touch of blue attire. The gang affiliate themselves with the Atlanta Braves and Los Angeles Angels baseball teams, oftentimes using their merchandise, mainly their ball caps, as means of showcasing their gang affiliation like almost every other modern-day gang in Los Santos.

 

 

STRUCTURE

 

The Asian Boyz has a very straightforward gang ranking, the major factor in the hierarchy is individual respect, also known as street credit. They utilize 1226, which they affiliate themselves within their graffiti, in their ranking as well. The ones (1s) would be the upper echelon, known as either the longest-lasting members or veterans of the gang. The twenty sixes (22s) would be the put on or ragged in. fully-fledged affiliates of the gang. The sixes (6s) would be the new faces or wannabes that just come by from time to time and have no real motivation to join. They hold a relatively tight circle within their gang and therefore don't give a lot of people the rights to wear their flag out in public, so throwing up ABZ gang signs without the blessing of a put-on member could result in a dispute that would usually end up in either a twenty six second beat down or a verbal warning, depending on the severity and way it was performed.

 

ORGANIZED CRIME INVOLVEMENT

Long before the Asian boyz formed under the Crip umbrella, their involvement with Taiwanese triads was at a heavy peak. The traditions remained and the ABZ was at one point considered a branch of the Bamboo Union, a Taiwanese triad that operated on US soil, because of their ethnic routes not being able to be fully recruited into the organization. The figureheads of the first formed Asian Boyz were associates of the Bamboo Union and moved heavy weighed narcotics and small scaled weaponry imported from all kinds of regions and countries. To this day part of the ABZ's hierarchy is somewhat organized due to their heavy ties to either Triads or the various Italian mobs. ABZ are very well known for their heavy weapons trafficking, having a few of their members distribute pistol assault rifles on a monthly basis as terms that fall under their treaty with the larger organizations.

ABZ remain a self titled street gang, but with heavy mob ties that benefit them in every way possible. The gang is operational but under heavy monitoring from the LAPD and other major crime preventing agencies. 

 

 

MODERN DAY

Nowadays the gang, much like every other LA gang, has downgraded to keeping their gang activity low as of the beginning of their gang injunction. The LA gang unit is actively working on bringing the gang down and after the sentencing of their original founder Marvin Marcado, things have slowed down for the better. The current leaders are unknown to the public and federal authorities and are believed to be running the whole game out of state. The gang injunction sparked at the end of the ABZ's "Summer Madness" and lead to the arrest of their gang founder, along with a verdict from the judge stating that the rest of the gang shall and will be put behind bars for their vile acts.

 

They operate as any other gang should and would, and have a significantly lower murder rate as oppose to their early days due to the injunction. The deaths of many well-respected and the last of the ruthless gang members resulted in ABZ softening up, however the new generation of gang members, although guided by the older and wiser gang veterans, continue to show the same level of viciousness as in ABZ's kick-up days.

THE PEOPLE, PLAINTIFF AND RESPONDENT,
v.
HAROLD SHAO, DEFENDANT AND APPELLANT

APPEAL from a judgment of the Superior Court of Los Santos County. Robert J. Perry. Perry, Judge. Affirmed. (Los Santos County Super. Ct. No. BA331615).


FACTS

Prosecution Evidence

A defendant is a reputed member of the infamous Sea Side Asian Boyz with the moniker "Physcho." The defendant's permanently cladded in various tattoos that say "A/B/Z" and "Sea Side." He is an older gang member, or "OG", who commands the movement of younger gang members in his neighborhood. He is also a higher-known shot caller, which means he can tell other gang members to commit heinous crimes. The Asian Boyz is a Los Santos Asian Crip gang that was formed sometime in the early 1970s and whose primary activities include murder, extortion, attempted murder, assault with a deadly weapon, narcotics transactions, robbery, vandalism, firearms possession, and sales. The territory of the latter gang includes the corner of (TURF), where the shootings in this case occurred.

On August 24, 2015, a group of youths who lived at the Corner-to-Corner Homeless Shelter were standing at a bus stop on the corner of (LOCATIONS). The group included Christopher Hopkins (Hopkins), Rachel Hyde (Hyde), and Hector Chavez (Chavez). Hopkins stood facing Magellan Street and conversing with Hyde and Chavez, whose back was to the street. A metallic grey Emperor with tinted windows and a partially open passenger window drove up in the lane closest to the curb. A handgun appeared to the partially open window, and a second handgun was pushed through the back-passenger window also. As the Emperor passed the group, the shooters opened fire. 

Hopkins was hit three times and died on the spot. Hyde turned around the, saw the car, and ran down Palomino Avenue. A bullet hit her under her right knee cap, permanently severing a nerve and rendering her unable to work. Chavez saw a flash of light and was lifted off the ground when a bullet hit his leg. The bullet went through his leg, and Chavez suffered a broken tibia from the knee down. He received a permanent injury and requires ongoing physical therapy. 

On August 28, 2015, four days after the shooting. Officer Williamson (Williamson) of the Los Santos Police Department (LAPD) stopped the vehicle in question, sporting an expired registration tag. The defendant was driving, and two other Asian Crips were passengers. The defendant was cited for driving with a suspended license, and the car was impounded. Williamson noticed a nine-millimeter spent shell casing on the front passenger side floorboard. He noted this on the vehicle report but left the casing in the car.

Ashley Peng (Peng) owned the Emperor, and she was in a romantic relationship with the defendant in August 2015. She sometimes allowed the defendant to use her car. Peng remembered being in a residence with the defendant when two of the men with him had guns. She testified that the defendant was not one of them, but she could not remember if she had specifically told a detective that she had reportedly seen the defendant playing with a gun, loading and unloading it. On that occasion, Peng allowed the defendant to use the Emperor. He left with the two men at approximately 9:10 p.m. When the defendant returned the car, the shield to the car's windshield was cracked. There was a hole in one of the passenger seats. When Peng later retrieved her car from the impound yard, she saw a gold bullet or shell casing when it rolled to the front of the vehicle. Peng threw it out the window.

During the winter of 2015, Peng chose the defendant's photograph from a photographic lineup as the man who borrowed her car, and she wrote, "I saw him playing with the gun." She identified Leonard Higa as one of the men who accompanied the defendant on that occasion, writing that he went with the defendant. At trial, Peng testified that she identified Higa because she felt pressured by police. She could not say at trial whether Higa was one of the two men who went with the defendant. Peng was afraid when interviewed by police officers because they told her she would go to jail.

Detective Jonathan Williamson (Williamson) of the LSPD was one of the officers investigating the shooting. He interviewed Aaron Zhang (Zhang) on September 13, 2015, at a juvenile facility. Williamson said he was a member of an Asian Crip and named the defendant and Leonard Higa as the shooters. Zhang said that the entire group was affiliated with an Asian Crip subset. Zhang described the vehicle and the firearms used to commit the crimes.

According to Zhang, the defendant and some friends were playing video games in an apartment complex on Magellan Avenue on the day of the shooting, and a group of Varrio Longos gang members drove by and shot at them. The complex is known for it's growing Asian Crip presence in recent years. The defendant ordered Zhang and the others to collect the spent casings. At approximately 7:00 or 8:00 p.m that day, Zhang was with the defendant in a residence they frequented. It is located about five miles from the shooting scene. Zhang saw the defendant and Higa loading a semi-automatic pistol (TEC-9) and a chrome .38-caliber pistol. The defendant then said they were going to "bust on" some rivals in retaliation for the earlier shooting. The two men left in a colored Emperor belonging to the defendant's girlfriend at around 9:00 p.m and returned at around 11:00 p.m. Defendant said, "We got him" when he returned from the suspected deed that left one rival gang member deceased. Higa said they had shot at a group of "chongos" who had been standing on a curb, identifying them as rival gang members who attended the same school as him. He said there was a female also present for the shooting. 

Zhang said that the defendant's girlfriend, whom he called "Little Boo" gave him a ride home that night. As they passed the corner of Palomino & Magellan Avenue, he noticed the police tape. He thought, "Wow, we just did that." Zhang saw the coverage of the shooting live on television when he got home.

Two days after Zhang's interview, William interviewed Zhang again along with Detective Miguel Ruiz (Ruiz). This interview was recorded, and the recording was played for the jury. Zhang confirmed his previous statements. He also said the defendant was holding the TEC-9 with large nine-millimeter bullets. Jones selected photographs of the defendant and Higa from a six-pack.

At the time of the trial, Zhang was in custody for an attempted carjacking and had been in custody since September 3, 2015. Zhang had suffered prior juvenile adjudications and was arrested for violating the terms of placement. He testified that he was aware he was facing a term of 13 years when he was arrested. He was sentenced to nine months.

On September 22, 2015, police executed a search warrant at the listed residence of the defendant. Officers found two TEC-9s, one of which was loaded with nine-millimeter bullets. Some of the TEC-9 rounds were Lugers. There were magazines for other guns, also. The Primo parked outside, which was reportedly stolen by the defendant after the shooting, contained approximately 200 rounds of ammunition, including .22 caliber, .45-caliber, and nine-millimeter rounds. The narcotics consisted of rock cocaine, meth, and marijuana.

Five of the cartridge cases found at the crime scene were fired from the same gun, a nine-millimeter that may have been a Glock. This latter gun as not, however, the one depicted in exhibit 30. Four of the other bullets found at the crime scene were not fired from the gun in exhibit 30. The ballistics expert could not, however, determine if these exact cartridges all came from the same gun. These cartridges were consistent with nine-millimeter, .38-caliber, and .357-caliber weapons.

Officer Gerald Shutinksy testified that he believed that the defendant committed the shootings for the benefit of the street gang he paid homage too, having his gang been fired upon by their rivals. The defendant indicated the gang would take care of its retaliation whenever he had ordered younger members to pick up the casings from the rival gang's shooting. This generally meant that the police responding to the shots-fired calls would not be able to confirm that shots were fired. The subsequent shooting that followed was on the border of the two gang's territories. The shooters targeted Hispanics, which is the race of most Varrio Longos members. The statement "we got him" confirmed the fact that the shooting had carried out in the gang's best interest, taking the life of another rival gang member. Crimes such as these shootings elevate the gang's stature. It allows the faction to commit more crimes by instilling absolute fear into their neighborhood. The crimes also elevate the status of those involved in such heinous acts, elevating their reputations by the whole.

OOC:

All characters should be represented lively, going through common struggles and showcasing the actual lives of how stressful, hurtful, gang-banging can be and storytelling. The goal is to reach the audience with a different mindset about gang roleplay. The nature of this faction strives to imitate a set based on the real-life gang, Asian Boyz which are based in Long Beach, California.

 

Upon deciding to join, you're advised to private message @ysl @varrio banginon the forums. Your character must be of either ethnic groups to be accepted amongst the hierarchy; Cambodian, Vietnamese, Filipino or Laotian. ABZ do have a rarity of African American affiliates but this faction will maintain an Asian ethnic standard.
