Considered to be one of the largest and wide spread Asian Gangs in America, the Tiny Rascals Gangs(Tiny Rascals Gang) or TRG for short have cliques spreading from the west coast to the east coast.
Tiny Raskals have a reputation of being very dangerous and have on site behaviour. There are cases where they have been documented to shoot in broad daylight, shoot up houses without knowing who’s inside. The gangs mission is do dirt and get paid.
The Tiny Rascals gang is a mainly Cambodian gang with with approximately 10,000 members nation wide. Their main source of income, is the drug trade, home invasion and extortion.
How did a gang this size come to be? Well to know this we need to once again, go back in time to find out how there ancestors first came to the United States.
History of the Tiny Rascals
The Tiny Rascals are a mainly Cambodian Gang, Cambodia is located in South East Asia, Near Thailand, Vietnam and Laos.
In 1979 the United States took in Cambodian Refugees that were escaping Cambodia. Cambodians were being sent to labor camps back home and getting executed in Mass my Pol Pot. It is estimated in the millions the amount of people that were killed due to Khmer Rouge.
From 1979 to 1991 around 150 000 Cambodians were admitted into the USA, and most of these refugees would land in California, Virgina and New York.
Like most immigrants, the Cambodians were bullied and racially profiled. Though having nothing, they pulled together and raised above this. To some this may have been hard, but the bullying was nothing close to what they experienced back home in Cambodia.
The Cambodians were being robbed, extorted, and beat up by latino gangs, which in retaliation forced the Cambodians to start street gangs.
This is how the Tiny Rascals Gang was formed, they started off as basic neighbourhood protection, but have grown to be one of the largest and most influential asian gangs in the USA.
