The Asian Boyz, also known as ABZ or AB-26, are a street gang based in Southern California. They were founded in the early 1990s as part of efforts of protection for Southeast Asian immigrants and refugees from the more numerous American gangs in their localities. According to the FBI, the gang is predominantly Southeast Asian-American, of which Cambodians account for their majority, while Filipinos, Vietnamese and other Southeast Asians comprise sizable numbers. With approximately 2,000 members, many are known to have enlisted in the U.S. military through which some were able to use their position to traffic drugs. According to the FBI's 2009 National Gang Threat Assessment, the Asian Boyz are active in 28 different cities, in 14 different states across the U.S. Their motto is "1226" which can mean "1 Life 2 Live, 26 to Die" or "1 Life 2 Live, 2 6icc to die", and the 1st, 2nd and 26th letters of the alphabet, which spells out ABZ.
In the early 1990s, the Asian Boyz gang was formed by a group of schoolmates, including 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. Controversy lies mostly around the official origin of the gang, as it was a unification of multiple gangs or founding gangsters rather than the formation of one. 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". Though the relationships between these individual sets are unclear, the various Southeast Asian members tend to work with people of their own national, ethnic or cultural background. More recent publications (since 2011) have revealed even more information about the gang, notable details include the alliance of a number of gangs based in Long Beach, California referred to as SEAs, an abbreviation of Suicidal Town, Exotic Family City Crip and Asian boyz.
The Asian Boyz has been in a long conflict with the Wah Ching gang. One of the first shootouts between the two gangs occurred in the 1990s in an El Monte pool hall. An Asian Boyz gang member, Lea Mek, was killed by Wah Ching gang member Chieu Luong Yang.
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 shootouts between the two gangs were called "Summer Madness" by the Asian Boyz gang.
The Young & Crazy (YNC) Effect
Young & Crazy (YNC, Y&C, Young and Crazy 1226) was formerly founded by Ethan Wong (Blocboy FK), Kendrick Trinh (Key) and Dylan Trinh (Owl) early 2018. YNC were known for their ruthless and merciless nature. The gang had succumb under a great amount of pressure from Gang and Narcotics division and Law enforcement ever since the incarceration of a 17 year old male (Wade Sang) who violently stabbed a Hispanic student at Gregory McCaine Highschool on the 9th of May, 2017. Asian males had been questioned and constantly pursued as a result of this. Another incident occurred a couple days later when a female (Zoey Chanthavong) from the gang used an AK-47u to shoot at peace officers who attempted to detain her, she is now serving life in prison. A third arrest arose when a young female (Layla Vien) mistakenly robbed a law enforcement officer with a .22 firearm. She had been seen around the area countless times with a well known and respected male from the gang. Law enforcement assumes the male had offered some sort of compensation for her to carry out tasks for him. A final arrest of the gang incarcerated a male (Du Xaefang) for 1st degree murder and possession of narcotics.
A sixteen year old teenage male by the name of Dominique Nakamura otherwise known by the residents of Jefferson as "Dom" was murdered on July 18th as a result of gang rivalry between Young & Crazy (YNC) and Low Bottom Bishop Bloods. The rivalry started when conflict between the members about offensive gang graffiti went from verbal abuse and racial slurs to a physical brawl. Both gangs continued to show hostility which as a consequence, claimed the life of young Dominique. YNC continued to use Dominique's name in their gang art and affiliations as a sign of respect, they believe he died for the cause. YNC returned to this memorial from time to time to light candles and mourn for the loss of a local going through the struggles and hardship of growing up in a bad neighborhood.
