There are more than 57 triad groups that are active in Hong Kong; some of them are no more than small, local street gangs. The larger groups, including the Sun Yee On, Wo Shing Wo and 14K, are syndicates of sophisticated criminals, mirror images of such similar western empires of crime as the mafia.
Their activities include drug trafficking, money laundering, illegal gambling, prostitution, car theft and other forms of racketeering. A major source of triad income today comes from the counterfeiting intellectual property such as computer software, music CDs and movie VCDs/DVDs. They also trade in bootleg tobacco products.
2. In western culture, the ASIAN (AZN would be pronounced azz-nn, you fuckwhits) attept at gangsta status. It's nice to know our fellow Asian-American youths are growing up to idolize drug-dealers, whore-mongerers, and murderers, because I was afraid that you guys might be smart enough to realize just how fucking base and primitive Western culture has become in recent decades, but I guess you're just as stupid as the rest of us, and decided to blend in with the "In" Crowd rather than stand agianst it.
2. A few years ago in north Conneticut, a Chinese guy of about 20 years or so slashed his father in the neck over an argument concerning their restaruant business. You just know the Triads were involved.
Triads are BAD. Drug pushing, prostitution and protection rackets, gun smuggling, and large-scale infiltration of the law. Chinese "mafia" that can fuck up the italians, the russians, the japs, and the blacks in many parts of the world. I'll smile when the last of them is brought into the teeth of Chinese justice.
