as one of the wife of one of the boys that got arrested and who got released, i think it was uncalled for to do this story and for the first comment WE'RE NOT MEXICANS WE ARE ASIANS!! most of us were born in the United States and lexington , you guys made it seem like TRG in NC are bad! you want to see something bad or worse go to california! your guys DON'T even know what happened and how it got started so get the facts straight before doing this stupid pointless report.!'cambodicans are nothing but trouble?' are you serious?? what about whites and blacks? they do more crimes then asians do
Ritha, you're illiterate and you can't even spell Cambodia right, so go back to your "boy" that you're married to and have a nice day.

I read this earlier and went back outside to finish my painting project in the garage and couldn't because I kept laughing and messing up my paint job... I loved it! You did make me wonder if they had a big spotlight on top the police station like the Batlight" but in Hege's case I guess it would be "The Spider Light"

I don't care what race they are or what gang they're in, If they did the crime, they should do the time, if they're illegal, then they should be sent back to their own country. In my opinion, gangs are just a bunch of cowards that want to feel important. As a gang, they will try to do harm to innocent, and in most cases, defenseless people. I rarely hear of one acting alone because they are cowards and if a gang member is threatened while alone, they are the first to call the police or they go get other gang members before they act because they are to cowardly to act by themselves. I think any known gang tattoo's and symbol's should be outlawed and anyone displaying same should be imprisoned even if it means reopening Alcatraz. I would also like to see the state of NC make more use of the death penalty and start creating and better enforcing the laws against gangs and their members and make sentences tougher for known gang members.

These comments are just so rediculous I had to comment. WHERE in this report does it say ANYTHING about any of these individuals being illegal or even suspected of being illegal? Oh, that's right it doesn't because they're NOT. Do you people just assume that any who's brown is here illegally? It's a toally irrelevant point to bring up in this situation and just goes to show what a bunch of backwards, ignorant hicks you all are. I'm white, college educated and born and raised in Lexington, and it's people like you all that make me happy I got the hell out as soon as I got the chance. How many of you even know some one who's Cambodian? How many of you have been bothered by TRG or even heard of them before you saw this? FYI, TRG is not even an exclusively Cambodian gang...Clay Faulker, does that sound Asian to you? How do you explain that one? I'm completely against gang violence and definitely believe these people should be punished if they truly DID comment the crimes they're accused of....but that remains to be seen.
Stop making everything about race, I'm embarrassed for you people. Instead of spending your time on the internet showing everyone how clueless you are why don't you go get a job...so you can send your kids to a decent college and prevent them from becoming ignorant country hicks like you.

After reading through some of these comments I have to say that people are extremely ignorant. I'm Cambodian, born and raised in CA. Not ALL Cambodians are illegal. Besides, Asians that come from ASIA have to fly here and do paper work LEGALLY to get into this country. Cambodia is not south of the border. Asia is a continent and Cambodia is a country of southeast Asia on the Gulf of Thailand. Instead of making fun of people that are "illiterate" why don't you get your facts straight and learn a few things.=]

Instead of being racist and putting people to blame,the fact is TRG is not the only gang in Lexington. There's Hispanic gangs, KKK, to name a few.
You guys see that just because we're Cambodians we're dumb and don't know how to speak English when in fact there's Cambodians in Lexington that are nurses, business owners and those that are earning a college degree. So get your facts straight before you starting putting your 2 cents in it. Have a nice day yah'll!

thank god that there are actually smart people on here standing up for what's right . it's not about race ? yes it is . because as i recall, they were pretty much arresting anyone asian . its ridiculous . one "asian" gang does a thing wrong, and suddenly all cambodians are bad & need to go back to their 'country'. alot of you don't know the story , lexington pd just wants to look good . whatever, this isn't even worth arguing about . when all you haters realize that this isn't anything but a lie, you're going to feel really stupid . just because someone's brown-skinned & can speak a different language doesn't mean their not from here , it means their cultured. most of you are just afraid ;

They are nothing more than just a bunch of little punks trying to push what weight they think they have around. People of the community should not be afraid of them, they should realize that these are our streets, and theses little punks do not own them. Letís just kick their little ass and show them that acts from morons are not going to be put up with.

Let me correct you moron. The police department has a job to do, and even if it means taking trash like this off the streets then so be it.

Hey, AYE, you sound like the only dumbass on here. If you do not like what the police in Lexington are doing then you leave. Also, if this makes you mad because you are part of this Mickey Mouse club then screw you.
