The Oriental Ruthless Boys and Menace of Destruction gangs were involved in a confrontation that erupted into a shooting that wounded two teenagers in June 2002 in Wausau, Wisconsin. Members of (ORB) or the (Oriental Ruthless Boys) were responsible for the shooting. Two carloads of young people pulled up to a home where a party and porch cookout was taking place and exchanged words before the shooting happened. A man fired at least three shots into the crowd, wounding a 17-year-old girl and a 16-year-old boy in the leg. The boy has been connected to the gang Menace of Destruction, also known as Men of Destruction. The Oriental Ruthless Boys were involved in a drive by shooting of a young M.O.D known as Menace of Destruction gang member in 2002, also wounding an innocent victim. This led to a retaliation where M.O.D's stabbed an O.R.B gang member at a house party and where another M.O.D gang member shot up three people in the house with a shotgun. Some of these M.O.D gang members were from Wausau, Minnesota, and even from California. All survived the incidents in 2002. One of the O.R.B members started to recruit many people from other race's that were Cambodian, Laotian, White, Black, and including Hmong. The majority in the gang were mostly Hmong, and Laotian, Menace of Destruction have a few other race's in it also but the majority are Hmong, and Laotian similar to the Oriental Ruthless Boys. The Oriental Ruthless Boys, 612 Hardcore Crips, and Mount Airy Boys (M.A.B) 1173 are known to be affiliated and old school gangs who are usually found at the clubs and bars, they usually end up getting into fights with rival gangs.

Activities[edit | edit source]
According to the filing in the Court of Appeal, Fifth District, California:
In August 1996, Menace of Destruction (MOD) and Oriental Ruthless Boy (ORB) were rival Hmong street-gangs in Fresno, California with intense animosity between them, and a history of violent conflict. In the street-gang culture, any insult or slight may justify a retaliatory response. A failure to retaliate leads to a loss of respect, power or manhood, both within and among gangs, and invites further attacks.
Defendant Vang, age 16, and defendant Yang (aka Gak), age 17, had MOD tattoos and were active MOD members.2 In his bedroom, defendant Yang had a mirror with MOD written on it, along with his notebook and a letter he drafted with various MOD scribbling. He also had a photo album containing numerous photos of defendants with known MOD gang members and/or associates, wearing MOD colors, displaying MOD tattoos, and making MOD gang signs with their hands. Defendant Yang was apparently trying to break away from the MOD gang at the time of the shootings. Defendant Lao (aka Koolaid), age 17, associated with MOD but was not a member. He did not have a MOD tattoo. A gang “associate” is someone who hangs out with the gang but is not a member because he has not been initiated by being “jumed in.” According to Asian gang expert Ramon Gines of the Fresno Police Department, defendant Lao qualified as a member of MOD based on police department criteria. This included defendant Lao's presence in photographs with documented MOD members, and Lao's correspondence with MOD members. The MOD typically would not bring along a non-member to commit a serious crime, but if he had a long-standing relationship of trust with the gang, then they might involve him. Chang Her did not belong to any gang. However, his friend and neighbor, Za Xiong, was an ORB gang member. Xiong had moved from the adjoining duplex unit on East Washington two weeks before the shooting. Shortly before Xiong moved out, ORB members, including Touhar Fang, had frequented Xiong's residence for protective reasons because one month earlier Xiong had assaulted a rival MOD gang member. Two to three months before the shootings, Touhar was accosted by a carload of MOD gang members, including defendants Vang and Yang, outside a restaurant near his apartment. The incident occurred while Touhar was walking to the restaurant. After ignoring inquiries of whether Touhar belonged to a gang, defendant Vang and four others exited a brown car and Vang struck Touhar in the face when Touhar denied belonging to a gang. Defendant Yang stood nearby and appeared to have a weapon under his shirt. The group then left in the car, and Touhar walked to his apartment. A short while later, the car returned and stopped near Touhar's apartment. Following the incident, Touhar identified defendant Yang from a photograph.
ORB also had feud with their hatred rival street gangs the Black Disciples when three of them were loading a shotgun, a tech nine, and a uzi submachine gun, they went out and picked on one of the ORB members while he was walking alone home from school because of his racial background, later the member of the Oriental Ruthless Boy started to fight back to defend his self then one of the BD members came rushing to the car grabbing a loaded shotgun in the back of the seat then later shot the ORB with two buck shots, later on the Oriental Ruthless Boys responded killing and shooting several Black Disciples members after one of its members had fallen, they may use the letter "K" at the end of BD which is "BDK" an acronym most gang members used meaning their itching and willing to kill Black Disciples members.
