I have to say, when I read news today that a”hypermuscular” former FBI agent got busted for planning to murder people and attempting to rip off an Orange County drug courier–and was Vietnamese, my first thought was, “Wow, there was a Vietnamese FBI agent? Cool!” And my second thought was, “Oh man, he’s a totally crooked killer guy. Bad Vietnamese guy. Bad!” I know, I know.
But the disappointment only grew when I learned just how Vo Tran, the 40-year old that was fired by the FBI in 2003 for a number of offenses (including attempted bribery of a Vietnamese official) was harpooned.
From the Chicago Sun-Times:
Vo Duong “Ben” Tran, 40, told a government informant secretly recording him that he had been a sports bookmaker and wanted to kill people across the country who owed him money, including a man from Redlands, Calif., who was in debt to him for more than $200,000.
“I want blood,” Tran said, according to the government transcript. “I have to make sure it has to be done right because all my hits, they are clean.”
Um, I’ve never actually ordered a successful hit, and I am certainly not a former FBI agent that once investigated organized crime, but in my opinion, jabbering on to your hitman is just sloppy. Shouldn’t such experience make a person BETTER at crime? I guess he didn’t study that hard. Just sayin’!!
I guess now, homey isn’t just former-FBI, he’s also FUBARed.
