Triads are organized crime goons typically based in Asia, but have been sprinkling their bad seeds across the globe selling drugs. They’re like the Italian-American gangs you see on television and in the movies, but are still operating on a large scale. Established in 1949 after the Chinese civil war, the 14k Triad has over 20,000 members. The gist of their activities include illegal gambling, human trafficking, drug trafficking, counterfeiting, weapons trafficking, prostitution, kidnapping, money laundering, loan sharking, vehicle trafficking, extortion, robbery, and murder.
