RIP. Haing S. Ngor.. Murdered by thugs


I heard he was killed by street muggers who robbed him, then demanded his gold locket (which belonged to his dead wife, victim of the khmer death camps, which he escaped from) so of course he denied them the locket. So they shot or stabbed him to death in the streets?? can't remember which city?
I believe I heard this on the Killing Fields comentary..

Hey you racist jacka$$!


Where do you get off trying to blame America for his death?
"Murdered by U.S. thugs"
"killed by american street muggers"

You can't even remember which city?

I'll tell you which city along with some other interesting facts you seem to have ignored in your anti-US posting.

the City was Los Angeles.

the killers were:
Tak Sun Tan
Indra Lim
Jason Chan

All three were ASIAN and all were members of the "Oriental Lazy Boyz" street gang.

And don't forget that even though "officially" it was written off as a botched robbery, there are several problems with the whole robbery issue.

Like how he had over $2,900 in cash on him that the thugs did not rob, and that his locket they wanted was always worn under his clothes and thus not visible (meaning they had to have known about it).

And even though US Investigators (who wanted a tidy murder wrapped up and not a political international incident) decided to call him not credible, Kang Kek Iew, a former Khmer Rouge official on trial in Cambodia, claimed in November 2009 that Ngor was murdered on Pol Pot's orders.

Calm down... I'm a white American (and if if pleases u I'm very rascist towards asian gangbangers)
Ok thanks for the extra info, so u think it was an inside job, and that before PolPot died in the early 90's he ordered the hit, mainly due to Ngor's fame and speaking out against the former dictator?

reply

White or not I could care less.

And no it does not please me that you are racist in any shape or form
Racism is wrong
PERIOD
That you even admit to being racist shows that you are a loser.

Yes I agree racism is wrong, I said I was racist against "gangbangers" or maybe I should say predjudace.. u should know orientals are some of the most racist ppl, and consider anybody dark skin a subhuman, thats why they use umbrellas in the sunlight and call the southeast asians mudpeople..
I won't hold it against u that u joined the navy as well... Army leads the way(2PPCLI, C Co, Afghanistan)

reply

There is racism among all races.

But to state: "u should know orientals are some of the most racist ppl" is in itself a racist statement by you (who claims not to be racist)

And by the way. This is not a text message. You can spell out YOU and PEOPLE.

Insofar as you poor attempt at a dig against my choice of service... well. At least I was smart enough to join the more intelligent branch of service.

Navy instruction manuals look like computer printouts and circuit diagrams.
Army instruction manuals are comic books written for the 8th grade reading level. (FACT)

Also, the Army does not lead the way... that would be the Marines. Army occupies afterward. And even they only lead the way after the Navy and Airforce soften up the ground and prepare it for them.

Inter-service rivalry and joking aside... thanks for serving.

Hey you racist jacka$$!

ASIANS can't be Americans?

reply

The thing at the heart of this thread is completely true ..The U.S soldiers were total thugs and murderers in a lot of cases in Vietnam and Laos.Not the majority but it happened a hell of a lot.

reply

The VC/NVA were 100x more barbaric than any GIs were, what about the massacre at Hue during Tet.... NVA rounded up 5,000 civilians and either shot, or buried the rest alive.

reply

I'm not saying the VC weren't totally barbaric and torturous people.They were vicious little b a stards .Maybe I'm being a little naive here especially after things like Abu Ghraib and don't get me wrong because im British but wouldnt you expect more adherence to human rights from U.S soldiers.

You obviously don't know a whole lot about the Vietnam War. I suggest you start with "Kill Anything That Moves" by Nick Turse.
