Doesn't get any more gangster than that blacked out Camry. That is the car equivalent of Samuel L Jackson's "Bad Mother Fucker" wallet in Pulp Fiction.

They could get more if regularly locking and shaking down these hotels in casinos places. There is probably more than one room with people awaiting help per hotel....

The M/ F**kers should get 25 years each but they will probably just get deported, no deterrent

Yes, amazing how kidnapping and extortion has developed as a business in Cambodia recently. It has become mainstream news since the onslaught of the Chinese casinos. There were always a few cases before of course, but now it has become a growth industry.
Well done Cambodia. :fool:
