"9 Reputated Gang Members Charged In Rape Of Saint Paul Girl, 14"

The nine suspects - reputed members of the True Blood 22 (TB22) gang or associated with the Blood Brothers gang - were jailed on charges of criminal sexual conduct and other offenses.

The adults are:

Kong Meng Vang, 38
Mang Yang, 24
Mitchell Teng Yang, 22
Vang Tou Ger Vue, 19
Van Chai Xiong, 18

The juveniles are:
Jim Her, 17
Shaileng Shong Lor, 16
Xou Yang, 16

Prosecutors have petitioned to have the juveniles certified to stand trial as adults.
"The facts outlined in this (criminal) complaint are horrible," Ramsey County Attorney John Choi said at a news conference Friday. "Too often, this is what criminal gangs do, and that is why we must do everything we can to bring them to justice and stop them." The girl "is currently in a safe place where services are being offered," Choi said. A spokesman for his office declined to elaborate. The rape came to light when the victim told someone who reported it to police, a gang investigator said. The investigator declined to identify the person. During a Nov. 23 interview with a nurse at Children's Hospital, the victim said she had been picked up at her school by Mang Yang and they had gone to a party with a female friend, according to the complaints filed in Ramsey County District Court. According to the complaints: The victim recognized Kong Vang as well as Van Xiong and the four juveniles. After they had been at the second house for a period of time, the victim got in Mang Yang's vehicle with her friend because they wanted to go home. The friend told police that she "had a feeling that something was going to happen because the guys at the party tried to separate the two of them," the complaints said. The friend tried to call for a ride, because she thought Mang Yang was stalling. She then went to look for street signs so she could give their location. Mang Yang, Shaileng Lor and the 15-year-old followed the girls to the car. While her friend was apparently checking their location, the victim was dragged out of the car by Lor and the 15-year-old. They carried her back to the house and put her in a bedroom that had a mattress on the floor. "The victim reported grabbing whatever she could, including door frames, to stop them from bringing her into the bedroom," the complaints said. She called for Mang Yang to help her but "he stated he had to go." A group of men were in the bedroom as the girl screamed and tried to escape. One of the juveniles later told police that two "big dudes" held the girl down and that at least two raped her. He said they stopped because Kong Vang thought the victim's friend had called police and he yelled a warning to everyone. There is nothing in the complaint to confirm that police were called or that they responded to the incident that night. Mang Yang later told police he knew the males were planning to rape the girl. "He stated he knew this because the guys at the party were smiling and excited and were trying to get the girls drunk so they could rape them," the complaint said. "Yang stated this had happened once before," the complaint said. "Yang stated it is the gang's intent every time they get girls to party with them to get them drunk and rape them." The 15-year-old told police he held the victim's arm during the attack "because Mang Yang told him to" and because the girl was thrashing and kicking to try to get free. He said Xou Yang held onto another arm while Shaileng Lor held her left leg and Vang Vue penetrated her. He said "he remembered the victim screaming for her friend and yelling, 'Stop,' " the complaints said. All nine suspects were charged with aiding and abetting first-degree criminal sexual conduct; conspiracy to commit criminal sexual conduct; kidnapping; and committing a crime for the benefit of a gang. All were being held Friday at the Ramsey County Jail. The True Blood 22 gang started in St. Paul about five years ago, said a St. Paul police gang investigator who asked not to be identified because of the nature of his work. "It was a lot of younger kids whose (older) brothers were Crazy Bloods, or CBs," he said. "They formed their subset or their own hybrid gang."

PEACE MOB THEORY
Peace Mob was a youth gang started in the 1980's by Hmong minorities which began the culture of Hmong gangs. Peace Mob started in Fresno during the mid 1980's to stop the discrimination Hmong minorities faced as being new to America.
Peace Mob is also known as the unifying leaders of all gangs that have originated and separated away. They broke out into many gangs as the first generation Menace of Destruction, Unstoppable Criminals, Asian Family Gangsters, Asian Crips, and some few other gangs. This is the main theory of how Hmong gangs started, through Peace Mob. Although they did currently have a leader, it is not specify whether he is still alive or not. Through some amount of years, other members of Peace Mob wanted to start their own gang to protect eachother in their own areas and promised to help eachother in time of need against other rivals. The first Hmong gang to derived from Peace Mob is the Menace of Destruction, Asian Family Gangsters, Asian Crips, Unstoppable Criminals, Mongolian Boys Society and other local gangs. Those were the main Hmong gangs at that time following with Oriental Ruthless Boys, Oroville Mono Boys, and Hmong Nation Society coming years later. Soon all the gangs increased by large amount of numbers and started to cause problems among eachother, whether it was over a girl or showing cockyness to other gangs. Soon the leaders of each gang couldn't stop the hate between eachother thus becoming rivals.

The Asian Family Gangsters were later formed after Peace Mob when they broke out into many other gangs. Though most gangs that were formed through Peace Mob were only of Hmong natives, the Asian Family Gangsters was a gang with Hmong natives and Lao natives. Though the Asian Family Gangsters was originally the second branch to the Menace of Destruction, they later went on and targetes the Menace of Destructions as main enemies for some unknown reasons. Fights and shootings broke out between the two gangs through out years. Eventually the Asian Family Gangsters went to an end after the Lao members decided to form their own gang called Laotion Boys Crew. As the Lao members went their separate ways, so did the Hmong members. The Hmongs than later went on and formed their own gang called Hmong Nation Society. The gang was born in Oroville and is now residing nationwide. The Hmong Nation Society later formed allies with the Unstoppable Criminals. Both the Hmong Nation Society and the Unstoppable Criminals took over the city of Stockton with iron fists during the early 1990's. Back in those days, they were the gangs to fear. As years passed by, it was later heard that the Unstoppble Criminal's leader was killed in a drive-by shooting in Stockton by a rival gang member of the Laotion Boys Crew. That went to HNS and USC's downfall throughout the past decade. When it hit 2003, it was known that USC has died-out and has givin' up its place in the gang life. Though USC died out, they later formed a younger generation gang called the Juvenile Criminal Crips. As JCC was formed, HNS was still around and formed a younger generation called the Ruthless Brothers Gang. As it seems to be a success, it later came to a failure as members of the HNS stopped representing and members of RBG and JCC had no respect amongst other gang members. As of now, the once dominant gang of AFG, HNS and USC, is now slowly going to a downfall because only the younger members are leading. With no elder members, and with lack of respect from other gangs, HNS is now currently a dying breed.

MOD |MENACE OF DESTRUCTION |CALIFORNIA |1989 |DOWN LOW
Menace of Destruction was the first gang to derived after Peace Mob broke out in 1989. Most gangs didn't fear them back the early 90's, but nowdays they are the biggest Hmong gang in the nation with over 1000 members nationwide. They quickly spread throughout various states such as Oregon, Texas, Wisconsin, Minnesota, Michigan, Rhode Island, North Carolina, and Colorado. They are also the first Hmong gang ever to be featured on History Channel's Gangland. With high murder rates, the MOD are most menacing. Menace of Destruction wasn't known to be bloods or crips but their original color was blue. With the colors confused they decided to make 3 sets among MOD called MOD Bloods, MOD Crips, and Colorless MOD. The Menace of Destructions didn't have much allies back then as they do now. Some were close to being allies with MOD but later turned to enemies instead and that gang was the Menace Boys Crew. They became enemies as MBC changed their name from Marysvilles Boys Crew to Menace Boys Crew, which the MOD had already claimed the name "menace". As many thought MOD's reign of terror had stopped in 2000, it will only be the beginning. The MOD startes to come up through the 1990's they slowly took over the city of Stockton alongside the Farmington Boys. In fact, all the violent shootings and killings in Minnesota was caused by California's original MOD members. Some shootings such as the Columbia Height Pool Hall shootingsin 2005 which involved original California MOD members such as brothers Charles Yang and Grogan Yang. With their gang very organized, MOD was able to come up as the 90's slowly ended and became of one the last gangs still standing among the original Peace Mobs.

RAB | RUTHLESS ASIAN BROTHERS | MINNESOTA | 1996 | ACTIVE
"RAB" also known as "Ruthless Asian Brothers" was born in the heart of North Minneapolis in late 1996.  "RAB" didn't had any affiliation with bloods or crips though they were known to wear blue often. Their main allies during 1997 was the "OMB" or "Oroville Mono Boys" which later became one of their main enemies due to an disagreeing arguement. Many rumors says that the "Purple Brothers" gang, which wanted to call peace treatie with the "RAB" sparked war between "OMB" and "RAB". Though some people never heard of  "RAB" before, they are one of Northside's most secretive gang in Minnesota. Throughout the late 1990's, "RAB" was one of Northside's top gangs but has went to a major downfall when it hit 2000 as their leader Ma "Vodka" Vang was incarcerated. Many members slowly walked away from the gang and some even flopping sets to become a member of the "OMB" and one of them, Xang "Puto" Vang a former "RAB" became resposible for the death of PB's leader Tou "2C" Yang in the summer of 2003. Since 2001, the "RAB" wasn't heard from again until 2004 - 2005 when they started rising back. Through the years they have layed-low, recruited more members, and also made new allies with gangs such as "MOD" or "Menace of Destruction" and "NCC" or "National Criminal Crips" since "Purple Brothers" was also an close ally. But their affiliation didn't last long as a gang war broke out when they fought with "MOD" and "NCC" during the Metrodome New Year celebration of 2006. Since then, "RAB" slowly started rising up and spreading from states to states such as Wisconsin, Arkansas and even Alaska. With members throughout North Minneapolis and Saint Paul, "RAB" is known to be the only gang that has done the most dirt in Minneapolis. Doing dirt such as auto theft, stealing car stereos, drive-by shootings and smashing their rivals houses and cars. The "RAB" gang is not to be underestimated as even with lack of members, many gangs fear "RAB" more than they fear the bigger gangs.

PB | PURPLE BROTHERS | MINNESOTA | 1996 | DOWN LOW
"Purple Brothers" is a gang native to Minnesota that was falsely rumored to be branched off of "MOD" when the menace started spreading throughout the states. The "Purple Brothers" gang derived in late 1995 of North Minneapolis. Though "PB" wasn't heard as much back then, they are a notorious gang that ruled throughout Northside. Their main enemies was the "OMB" gang, which was also rivals of the "MOD". They still continue with the never ending war to this very day. Since then, many gangs also called the "OMB" diss name such as "Fleas", "Flees" and/or "OM-Flees" due to the lack of respect they had running off from fights. Many shootings and fights sparked between the "Oriental Mono Boys" and "Purple Brothers" which even caused the death of PB's leader Tou "2-C" Yang in 2003. With PB's leader dead, they began retaliating against the "OMB" which also left many OMB's deceased. Just recently, the "Purple Brothers" called war on any gangs that wears the color red, including ally, now rivals, the "Menace of Destruction" gang, thus leading to "PB" dominating the "MOD" at the Minnesota Metrodome New Year Celebration 2012-2013. The "Purple Brothers" gang became one of the largest Hmong gang in Minnesota with over 100 members across the Twin Cities alone. They also have the most gang members in prison and definitely the most "OG" members that is still representing the gang. PB has been on a rise eversince and has become "Minnesota's Most Hated Gang".
