For example, one of Norman Hsu's business partners is Raymond "Shrimpboy" Chow, a supposedly reformed gang leader who, among other things, ran a child prostitution ring. His gang won a bloody war for control of Chinatown crime. But, best of all, he was recently awarded San Francisco's "Certificate of Honor" by city Supervisor Fiona Ma.
A convicted Chinatown gang member who faced possible expulsion from the United States -- and who came under scrutiny earlier this year when a well-known community leader was shot to death -- just got a surprising star on his resume, thanks to a San Francisco supervisor.
Raymond "Shrimp Boy" Chow and his tong are the proud recipients of an official certificate of honor from the city, an award arranged by Supervisor and state Assembly candidate Fiona Ma.
This is the same Raymond Chow who was active in a Chinatown tong called Hop Sing until he and two dozen others were indicted in 1992 on racketeering charges for their alleged involvement in everything from underage prostitution to the international heroin trade.
I'm really looking forward to watching the MSM squirm as this tale unfolds.
