Description

Please note that the content of this book primarily consists of articles available from Wikipedia or other free sources online. Jackson Boyz or Jackson Boys are a San Francisco, California based Asian street gang and Triad society. The gang is composed of Chinese and Vietnamese members, and is centered in San Francisco's Chinatown. However, there are members of the gang in middle schools and high schools in addition to their Chinatown presence. The gang was involved in many criminal acts including the burning of a Chinese restaurant sparked by the owner's debt to the gang. Although the suspects were arrested, they were soon released. The Jackson Boys are also connected with the Seven Stars gang. The Jackson Boys gang is the successor to the Wo Hop To Triad which ruled the streets of San Francisco Chinatown in the 80s and early 90s. The Jackson Street Boys was founded by three brothers; Bobby Tsan, Johnny Tsan and Tommy Tsan. The three brothers were former Wah Ching members who defected to the Wo Hop To. The Wah Ching gang of Southern California was originally based in San Francisco. After the Wo Hop To forced the Wah Ching to head south, the Jackson Street Boys would be able to gain a stronghold in the mid-90s and become the largest Asian criminal organization in the San Francisco Bay Area.show more
