The American Government told me it was going to be a shithole and I was going to get attacked by gangs.
The Feds were talking about L.A gangs attacking you while you're traveling to the airport.

I mean I am sure the Cambodians that got extradited from the US still operate as criminals, but I have not seen anything even resembling a gang since I have been in Cambodia.

Don't worry, people aren't organized enough here to form a gang.

If you had been around the Wat Phnom area a few years ago you would have seen a gang of monkeys. Upset one and they would all attack you.
I once saw a baby monkey, just a few days old fall onto the road on st 102 and a motodop picked it up. He had to run for his life as a gang of monkeys chased after him. Finally he was convinced by bystanders to give it up.
Cambodia,,,, Don't fall in love with her.
Like the spoilt child she is, she will not be happy till she destroys herself from within and breaks your heart.

I meant street gangs as in people, but I would enjoy to see a squad of monkeys terrorizing the city.

Actually they are all reformed and live righteous lives,I have yet to see or hear any negative news about Khmer Americans whom were deported to Cambodia,what I have seen is great projects and programs headed by them which help and benefit the people,the idea that they still partake in forbidden activities here is irrational and judgmentally prejudice

The rebels operate here, which makes me laugh coz there is only one gang in Cambodia.
