San Francisco Chinatown Crime
Passengers disembark a cable car in the Chinatown district Thursday, March 27, 2014, in San Francisco. Beneath the strings of red paper lanterns and narrow alleyways of the nation's oldest Chinatown lies an underworld, a place with a history of opium dens, gambling houses and gangland murders. Federal investigators say it's also where Raymond "Shrimp Boy" Chow operated a criminal empire while projecting a public image of community servant. The allegations against Chow are part of an FBI sting that names 25 other defendants, including state Sen. Leland Yee. (AP Photo/Ben Margot)
