A triad is a Chinese transnational organized crime syndicate based in Greater China and has outposts in various countries with significant overseas Chinese populations. The Hong Kong triad is distinct from mainland Chinese criminal organizations. In ancient China , the triad was one of three major secret societies. Two features which distinguish a black society from a dark force are the ability to achieve illegal control over local markets, and receiving police protection. The generic use of the word "triads" for all Chinese criminal organizations is imprecise; triad groups are geographically, ethnically, culturally and structurally unique. Triads in Hong Kong are less involved with "traditional" criminal activity and are becoming associated with white-collar crime ; traditional initiation ceremonies rarely take place to avoid official attention. Rumors have it that triads have now migrated to the U.

Judge Curtis B. Rappe sentenced year-old Pierre Mercado to a series of consecutive terms for his part in the four killings and also for five attempted murders, a kidnapping for robbery and a kidnapping for extortion.

They were founded in the early s as part of efforts of protection [1] [14] for Southeast Asian immigrants and refugees from the more numerous American gangs in their localities. In the early s, the Asian Boyz gang was formed. The gang also included other races, like Filipino brothers named Marvin Mercado and Pierre Mercado in Southern California , as part of an effort to protect themselves from the more numerous pre-existing gangs situated in their respective neighborhoods. Their identity also attracts notable controversy, being that the Cambodian sets are notoriously influential and decorated as their own faction of Crips that is, among other things, racially or ethnically distinct. Although the Asian Boyz gang comprise their own identity as an organization, the identity itself is largely interpreted as an umbrella of individual Crip gangs or "sets"; hence their alternative monikers "Asian Crips" and "Asian Boyz Crip".
