America's Most Wanted: Wah Ching Shootout



The famous 1993 pool hall in LA shooting that set off the three year Asian "gang war."

Text courtesy of America's Most Wanted

----------
Pool Hall Brawl Kicks Off A Series Of Shootouts

On December 3, 1993, pandemonium broke out at an L.A. pool hall. Police say this is where a turf way began between two rival gangs, the Asian Boyz and Wah Ching. During the brawl, which was caught on surveillance tape, the two gangs get into a serious shootout. After studying the tape thoroughly, police said Chung Lewong Yang, who's nickname is "China Dog" attacked members of the Asian Boyz including Lea Mek, known as "Kicker."

Det. Dolley said, "Kicker was armed and he made some boasts to the Wah Ching gang members. He showed his weapon and they overpower him. Kicker turned his back on the Wah Ching gang members and they get his gun." On the surveillance, Asian Boyz members grab pool cues and attempt to beat rival gang members in an attempt to save "Kicker's" life.

After a full scale shootout, the Asian Boyz lose this battle and "Kicker" died at the scene. Following the shooting, police believe Mercado and his gang declare war on Wah Ching.

Det. Larry Dolley and his task force believe the pool hall brawl was the beginning of a three year crime spree by the Asian Boyz.

But it wasn't until 1995 when the Asian Boyz kept their vow to seek revenge, according to L.A.P.D. Police called that summer, "Summer Madness," due to the many Asian Boyz shootout.


Gang's Crime Spree Spins Out Of Control

During an 18 month stretch between 1995 and 1996, police say they connected the Asian Boyz to a dozen murders. On May 30, 1996, officers rounded up 19 members of the Asian Boyz. However, the police didn't have enough evidence to hold two of the top leaders, Sothi Mehn and Marvin Mercado.

Police finally got a break when an informant came forward in 1997 and the DA filed murder warrants for Mehn and Mercado. Sothi Mehn was captured in Phnom Penh, Cambodia on July 29, 1997 by members of the Cambodian Army. His arrest was the direct result of a tip from "America's Most Wanted". Another gang member, Sam Chan, was captured on June 9, 1998 in Utah. Chan's arrest was also the result of a tip from "America's Most Wanted". But, Marvin Mercado was still on the loose.

Police say Mercado, who's nickname is "Shy Boy" will do anything to avoid capture. Police say Mercado is known to carry automatic weapons and should be considered armed and dangerous. A good clue is a large tattoo of a dragon which covers his back. Det. Larry Dolley said, "The dragon is a power symbol of strength and power. The dragon which is holding pearls, stand for wisdom. And they have an 'A' in the middle of the dragon which stands for Asian and Asian Boyz."

LAPD strongly believes Mercado is hiding out in the Philippines. They are working closely with the FBI, the State Department, and the Philippine Government in hopes of capturing Mercado. Det. Larry Dolley has committed many years of his law enforcement career to catching up with the Asian Boyz. Seven of the gang members have been convicted and are serving time.

However, the last remaining member is the one Det. Dolley wants now, "We'd really like your help in capturing this desperate criminals. He's very dangerous and his gang has ruined a number of people's lives. We'd like to get him in jail in the U.S. and let the court system do their duty on them."

That Det. Dolley was tasked with this nonsense? Imagine capturing this murderer, transporting costs, manpower and labor, security personnel, lawyers if need be, jury duty, incarceration, feeding him, uniforms, insurance liability, etc. Thats MY DAMN TAXPAYING DOLLARS!

I say they execute him summarily, .40 cent NATO round, 5.56mm quickie to his head, or $1.20, 3 shots center mass, save the american public the grief and burden. Wah Chings... LOL "hella" Cali beef, while NY's Asian gangs the worst. The Tong association was more prevalant in creating Asian organized groups, especially at the initial settling of Chinatown. Bah! Now you see more of these Asian gangs in states like Texas, Georgia and even Wyoming. Cool video claudewolfe, but I wonder if they've ever had Nippon's most wanted, with yazuka's chopping off pinkies and robbing inkstores for their tattoos. :D

The Yakuza are a different breed of gangster, or organized crime if one wills. The Yakuza have been in Japan for hundreds of years, it is historically proven that Yakuza play a fairly large part in Japan's culture. The Yakuza, among many other forms of organized crime (not really), started out as hired body guards, Yojimbo. Unlike mafias and these pathetic asian gangs, the Yakuza are much more reserved and civilian friendly. Their job includes being present at corporate meetings to boss around smaller share holders, and the like. Of course, there are always rival Yakuza groups, and fairly rarely do civilians get involved. The Yakuza also, contrary to hollywood junk, work WITH the police, as opposed to against the police. If there was unneccessary shootings, the member at fault is required to turn himself in or forfeit his life. During natural disasters, they are sometimes the first to provide help to victims, yes it is true, if you must, wikipedia has some information. The Yakuza function more of the body guard type, armed, a company if you will. You see how franchises like Kmart and Target and whatever have their own separate guards and whatever, the Yakuza is sort of like a company, where different businesses in ghetto areas can hire them to protect against the real thugs.

However, some Yakuza do go apes**t, but that is usually not the role of Yakuza. There are also not nearly as many killings as certain movies show. Beatings, yes.

Yakuza contrast to European mafias in that they help police maintain control over areas, for a price, as opposed to outright controlling it like Italian Mafia so I have heard.

I would like but to point out that the Yakuza are not nearly as voilent in the traditional sense in that they kill civilians and forcibly(note forcibly, many Yakuza run (underage) porn but the girls are handsomely paid) raping girls and damaging or destroying government and private property

I can't understand what the guy expected to get out killing the guy, except being on the run for the rest of his life. He got 45 years to life in prison. What an incredible waste. . . one kid dead, one kid in prison forever. Nothing good came out of it.

A good part of growing up is being able to control anger, compromise, and make sound decisions under pressure. I'll never understand LA or the people here. They do some of the most incredibly stupid and dangerous things. In addition, people's priorities are really messed up. (You can see all of this from the way people drive on the freeways here, and what people will do to save fractions of a second.)

More than anything else, I blame the parents and our school systems. I am a firm believer that there is no such thing as a bad kid, just kids who need a little more attention and encouragement.

Quit glorifying the Yakuza. Get your facts straight. They are the same as any other gang fueled by power, money, and greed. People just don't hire the Yakuza either. Business owners are shaken down by them and have no choice in the matter. It is all based on terrirtory. Just because they have a big influence in parts of Japan doesn't excuse their criminal activity.
