9780061782381: Born to Kill: The Rise and Fall of America's Bloodiest Asian Gang

Throughout the late eighties and nineties, a gang of young Asian refugees cut a bloody swath through New York's Chinatown. They were the lost children of the Vietnam War, severed from their families by violence and cast adrift in a strange land. Banding together under the leadership of a megalomaniacal young psychopath, David Thai, they took their name from a slogan they had seen on helicopters and the helmets of U.S. soldiers: "Born to Kill." For a decade their empire was unassailable, built on a foundation of fear, ruthlessness, and unimaginable brutality—until one courageous gang brother helped bring it down from the inside.

From the Back Cover:

Throughout the late '80s and early '90s, a gang of young Vietnamese refugees cut a bloody swath through America's Asian underworld. They were the lost children of the Vietnam War, severed from their families by violence and cast adrift in a strange land. They took their name from a slogan they had seen on the helicopters and helmets of U.S. soldiers, and it perfectly reflected their dark, nihilistic worldview: "Born to Kill". Born to Kill is an examination of the changing face of organized crime. As the Cosa Nostra wanes, a vast multicultural criminal marketplace has begun to take shape in America. Born to Kill lays bare aspects of this budding underworld in dramatic, human terms, through the eyes of those caught in a daily, terrifying quest for their own unique version of the American Dream.
