SF Chronicle: The Two faces of Raymond Shrimp Boy Chow

posted by Randall

Raymond Shrimp Boy ChowWhich image of Raymond Shrimp Boy Chow should we believe?

Is he the gangster who operated a criminal syndicate out of the Chinese Freemasons or Ghee Kung Tong that prosecutors are painting?

Or is he the lighthearted and fun reformed mobster who has devoted his life after prison to preaching the dangers of gang life to the youth of San Francisco?

The San Francisco Chronicle tried to sort the these two contrasting images out in Sunday’s paper.

Chow remains in prison charged with seven counts of money laundering, two counts of transporting and receiving stolen property and of trafficking untaxed cigarettes.

But his attorney points out in the 137 page affidavit filed in the case, there are 25 times during which Chow tells an undercover officer he doesn’t want anything to do with crime and on numerous occasions discouraged the undercover officer from engaging in illegal activities.

You can read a lot more about the prosecution’s case and Chow’s defense in the San Francisco Chronicle.
