In contrast, Asian syndicate crime in Southern California appears to be "in a state of turmoil," with no one organization dominant, Senate investigators have concluded.

The arrest of state Sen. Leland Yee shook California political watchers Wednesday, but for followers of Bay Area crime it was the arrest of a San Francisco figure known as "Shrimp Boy" that caught their attention. Both Yee and Raymond Chow, AKA "Shrimp Boy," were arrested in a serial of raids in a sweeping public corruption probe. Chow was at the center of organized crime in San Francisco's Chinatown for decades, according to federal court documents. On his Facebook and Twitter accounts, he bills himself as a reformed gangster who now advocates on behalf of children.
