"No today says he's only her brother or her uncle in this spot, but I feel like I'm gonna make that liberty and say he counts. Both of us day. Brendan Haywood going to stop by help us break down this end betrayed deadline. But before we get to that today, woman, Kay, I save parts unknown because I'm not 100% sure. Can I reveal your current location and what you have been up to today because it's pretty spectacular. Yes. You can reveal my location. If you're watching ESPN, Plus, you're going to get a treat. Oh, no, wait is my shot Not up there yet. We're efforting some technical aspects of this right now. Hence the parts unknown for anyone watching on ESPN. Plus right now you get to know his head shot. But today you are clearly not just let in. There is a floating head right now. Why don't we give hints? What hints You're gonna have to give the hints Really? Selfie. Like you in infamous Selfie that you okay? I'm horrible with him. I'm in a green room. Okay, I'm in a green room. And how about this Because of you, Junior Everything in my life is stronger. Because of you. Everything is stronger since you've been gone. I've never known what to do. Oh, wow. All right, all right. Here we go. So if anyone could start to place that right now, we'll get to this at some point. If anyone can guess the hand action at my goal of junior where today is coming from right now, it should start to become abundantly clear. But the Easter eggs will mount up as we go along, so actually at my goal, a junior for that, But today in the meantime, it's time for straight talk brought to buy straight talk. While it's because While no one may know where you are right now, you have not been traded from either ESPN radio or from the Los Angeles Sparks. You were staying put, which seems to be the M O of the MBA trade deadline because that has come and gone now three o'clock eastern on this Thursday. And we've got some movement today. I would best describe today's MBA trade deadline, as huh. It's not a depressed sound. It's on, uh We have some moves being made today. Victor Oladipo going to be moved from the Houston Rockets to the Miami Heat. We have got Nikola Vucevic, our friend for into the program from Orlando heading to the Chicago Bulls. We've got Aaron Gordon going off to the Nuggets. But today outside of that, we've got largely a lot of people staying Put, namely Kyle Lowry, who we all thought said goodbye to the Toronto Raptors the other night now doesn't come to a deal. Nothing happens in Philadelphia and yeah, I mean, how do you imagine that He's going back in Building because while you have been traded, you were drafted by the Connecticut son. You are now part of the Los Angeles Sparks. I have to imagine you've also seen and been around some of this where a player is floated out there and then all the sudden has to make that weird walk back into the building like, Hey, guys. As long as it's done on your terms. They're cool. It's like Oh, I thought it was leaving. But hold up. Wait a second. I'm not And that's kind of Lowry. He's won a championship. He's well respected. He's well sought after even if you like. Even I'm time. I don't know why everything comes into relationships for me. But even if you like, think all should I break up? No, like we have a good thing here. It's a win win scenario for someone that is is desirable. Right? So I'm not surprised that calorie stay just because The departure of the Toronto Raptors from what they were when Kwai Elin was there to what they are now has been swift. And I wouldn't make rash changes, even though that change could have another team a championship piece. We were looking at Philly. We're looking at Miami, but those teams sort of either are good with what they have. Or the bolster themselves. Victor Lee Depot most namely, going to Miami, Yes. So we've got the Kyle Lowry situation that you're right. He's gonna be a free agent this summer. Life gets easy. He knows if he wants out. There's a way out come this summer and Toronto. They don't get assets and return at this point in time, so that's where we are with that team. But today as we look at the big picture, and all this now, the Lakers sit put largely here, the Clippers make a move and send Lou Williams The Atlanta Hawks. In exchange. They get playoff Rondo heading back their way to Los Angeles. So first off on the basketball side of this chair, because I think it's fascinating now to set the table for the rest of the embassies in because now we've got everyone locked in their respective rooms. Now we've got the team set as they're gonna be down the stretch, and I think you could start to see some pretty clear tears form. And we've known going into this today that the Nets the Lakers the 76 years and we've talked about the bucks, I think we're all pretty comfortably. Tier one. Would you say this Clippers move changing Lou Williams out Who was going to give you 20 points pretty consistently coming out there in exchange for playoff Rondo regime. Rondo, a guy that we've seen last year star on the other side of Staples Center. Do you think that's a move that vaults them closer to that top tier? Or is this about an even trade for them? I think it's a little more lateral just because As much as playoff Rondo is great in the play offs. Sometimes you wonder. Will it happen then, like you want to see the regular season lead to the playoffs and not just bet on that person delivering in that short samples or small sample size? So I've seen a number of moves that sort of were maybe a little lateral, But more importantly, junior. I'm looking at the Nuggets. Who got Aaron Gordon. I'm like, Hmm. If you're if you're a contender, this is how you do it like going from Orlando to now. Denver A team that made it. You know, I made a real postseason run last year. That was like one of those moves like, Oh, this could actually provide a spark for them in a way that can Maybe steal a game or two That could still a serious that could actually change the way that the playoffs go. So that, Hmm. Also Miami. He getting victory the depot. This is just my personal seat. Okay, Because Victor is my guy. I believe. I think just going off the side of my head. He trains out in Miami quite a bit, And so for him toe find a place where he trains in the off season that he's pretty comfortable knowing that you know Indiana was probably not going to be a long term destination. Taking the pit stop to Houston..

"It's been a minute from NPR. I'm Sam Sanders. This election, Latinos are the second biggest block of voters. If you consider them one big block. The Latino community is extremely diverse, and that makes political outreach Latino voters kind of tricky. Assume well. Latinos all think like me, and I may we're conservative, pro life. You know, we're Catholic, but that's not the case it off. We're a pretty disparage group that is Victor Lee Al from Muleshoe, Texas. He's a Republican. He was even mayor of Muleshoe at one point, and he has done a lot of outreach to Latino voters for the Republican Party. Victor said that diversity of opinion makes it really hard for anyone to get Latino political outreach for all Latinos, right And he says right now the type of Latino outreach he seen from both parties. It's pretty bad. They've just dismissed us. You know they've dismissed by and large the Hispanic community. I think what's been egregious is that we've essentially big been ignored. So why does it seem that no one when it comes to talking to Latinos? Gets it right. To get some answers. I called up somebody who studies Latino politics for a living. Lisa Garcia Bedoya, She's a professor and vice provost for graduate studies at UC Berkeley. And she wrote a book that is pretty on point for this conversation. It is called Latino politics. At least tell me that word Latino. It can mean a lot of different things. So Lisa, I want to start by talking about a recent news event. That reveals a lot about the way politicians successfully and unsuccessfully try to appeal to Latino voters. I'm talking about the whole Supreme Court nomination process. Before Amy Cockney Barrett was selected by President Trump. There was talk that he might appoint Barbara Lagoa. A Cuban American judge and the thinking from the Republican Party Wass. Well, this might help him get Latino votes. You wrote an entire news. We got bed that said probably it won't and also this kind of thinking. It's kind of offensive. Explain well at its core is this idea that if I'm a Latina, and I should say for full disclosure, I'm a Cuban American Latino, so theoretically the type of person that would be most excited about such a nomination. That somehow this woman's ethnic national origin racial identity would trump any policy preferences or policy concerns that I have So the idea that if I disagreed with the president on health care, on education or on his immigration policy that somehow all of that would disappear simply because this woman happens to be a co ethnic A member of my community, and that presumes a level of flatness right and sort of non content Tio Latino political attitudes. That is reductive in ways that I think are really problematic that essentially, it's just about your race, and you're not going to think about anything else beyond that. And no one actually votes that way. Not even white. People know, you know, it doesn't happen that way. No. You use a phrase that I love in your op Ed. You call it mariachi politics years ago, we used to call a Hispanic ring. But it's the same kind of idea. What does it mean The idea and I should say Democrats and Republicans have done this now for decades that you're gonna have a rally and you're going to have a buddy at you, man and that that's somehow going to tell Latino voters that you are on their side and that you understand them. It again without any actual content, right, so that if I hear this song or decent, different members, you know he played at the Republican convention when George W. Was on the ballot. That somehow that's going to make me ignore what you're actually standing for, you know, from from a policy standpoint about education are about Jobs or anything like that. And so it's this. It's this idea that somehow symbolic outreach is all we want. And my first Abba Hannah, who teaches at San UC San Diego, wrote a great book on this. And she showed that Spanish language ads actually have less policy content from all candidates. English language ads, right, So this idea that somehow all we care about is that you speak to me in Spanish. I don't actually care about the content. Of what you're saying and again, it's it's insulting, right and it's It's really reducing us to, you know, tacos and mariachi bands and not really policy. Yeah, you know, it's it's It's good to hear you say that both sides through this I will never forget. Last campaign cycle when Hillary Clinton had a whole day where she was talking about how she's just like your abuela, and everyone was like, no, man. No, man, we're not doing this. Exactly. I'll do it. Yes, yes, They all do it. And again. It really is about this idea that we're all the same to write. Because not all of us. Listen to mariachi music, right? Not all of us speak Spanish. And so there's that layer of it to that. Not just that all we care about his culture, but that we all have the same culture and most Latinos in the US are English first, right? Correct? Yes. And so you know, this gets to another big point that she made in your op ed. And in all of your research and writing, you know when we talk about the quote unquote Latino community or outreach to that community. It's not just one community. It is dozens, if not hundreds of different communities, and you list some of the things that really draw distinctions within this large group in the op Ed, you call them multiple axes of diversity. I like that. What are some of those big dividing lines? Thank you. Well, the first big one is national origin. While it is true that about 60% of Latinos, United States are of Mexican origin, even among Mexicans, depending on with part of Mexico you from that makes a big difference but the north of the South And then you also have generation. There's some people have been here since the border moved right, and there's some people who just got here last year, and there's everything in between. And then there's Nativity Summer citizens. Some are not citizens. And then there's geography, which is really important that even people of the same national origin depending on where they moved to They have a very different set of life experiences. One concrete example is ifyou're Puerto Rican, and you ended up in Chicago versus Ifyou're Puerto Rican, and you ended up in New York very different relationships of the community's very different history of political engagement. And so Even within the same national origin. You have significant differences, depending on where people land how long they've been here and what the opportunity structures are in the place where they landed. Yeah, but then also one of the things that I find really fast and when we talk about like Valentino community. I think the American assumption is at all Latinos are brown. But there are white Latinos and there are black Latinos and they're Latinos who speak English and some who speaks Spanish and some of those big Portuguese..

"Never put together a timeline for white people so that they could comprehend, and I, we, as in you and me, I'm taking myself that would show just like the history of suffrage and how it comes to pass over time. For those people who don't understand. The idea behind privilege for those people who don't understand like what Victor Lee Lewis talks about in the color of fear. I would love to see a way to educate people to help them understand? It's not George Boy just Just is not It's more than that. It's just It's a matter of trying to explain to you White people without getting them to be defensive and fragile. And I don't mean you explain. I mean, other way people like myself fairly. Thank you. I don't know if you wanted to respond. Claudia Rincon. Well, I think there's been a few things that have come out recently that have pushed the conversation like the New York Times piece. 16 19. I thought Did a really great job. Presenting different perspectives on and how we got to be here. They're also people like Robin D'Angelo, Tim Wise, who have been writing and speaking to these issues, along with Amber Abram candy. And and many others, So I think we're in a really golden era of engagement around the issues from all kinds of people. White blacks, Asians the book I mentioned earlier. Minor feelings by Kathy Park Hong on DH. Then in in film, Ava Duvernay's work has been, You know, she she did. Ah! A film on the Central Park Jogger case that We gave us the actual history rather than the mythology around. What happened with those youths in the inn who were imprisoned, So I think there's so many different ways in which people are coming in on bringing back the rial history and the and the really facts rather than The facts that support a white supremacists orientation. One of the things that I'm struck by is Even though I think this conversation is sort of Starting from the premise that conversation is useful, productive change will happen and worth it. In some ways you're booked leaves that as an open question. And I'm wondering, you know? Yeah, it's are you about to say something? Well, I agree. Rosie. I mean, there is a line. What if nothing happens after everything you know, And that's always the fear. I mean, we've had the protests of summer. What if nothing happens? Come vaccination, and we're all back in their jobs. And suddenly this was just that time. So that's that's all because we've been dealing with the same thing for centuries. And and the steps seem like baby steps relative to the amount of progress we've made were still in a position where people can you know where a man one man 10. Put his knee on another man's neck and watch him die and people stand around and watch him watch the dying man die. And that's okay. You know, so it's it's and we can't We have a president who knew about the virus and said nothing. We have a reporter who knew that he said nothing and had tapes and didn't release the tapes. Despite Happening holding on to them since February, while people were dying all around us. So you know what if nothing happens that is always a possibility. Yes. And so anyone looking to read this book is almost like a primer for howto have these difficult conversations. That really isn't it? What it is, is just a exploration of how these different conversations have played out. And it sounds like that was really deliberate for you. Yes, because I You know, I think these are choices We have to make every day for ourselves, are we Okay with the world we live in. Is this the world we want to pass on to our Children? Are we willing to take? Actions beyond the conversations. That allow for new conversations. Those are all things that I think Justice tries to Push towards even if it itself doesn't go there. Well, just rights when I was 12, my family doubled in size and became mixed race where three races and six faiths as a child. I was very curious and fearless and ask my new family about how the experience life those conversations became harder as we all grew up, even though we became closer as a family in the last few years. Now that we're all adults in our late thirties, we've been able to open up and have these conversations again. Brian writes. A lot of people are now reading and learning about racial inequity. But don't have the potential stamina to have a long and uncomfortable conversations with others. What advice do you have to help people build stamina have these difficult conversations. Well, I think it's kind of like running. You do a little bit more each time on DH, and that's how the stamina bills. There's more information available. There's also I mean to have the conversation means that you're also doing your own work. You're also reading or also listening you. You know, the film I referred to is when they see us by Ava Duvernay and as a family watch that film Think about what it meant for those kids to be a justice system to fail them at every level. You know these air five kids who were accused of raping and beating up a woman even though they were in a different part of Central Park. When the rape happened, the district attorney, Linda Fairstein, knew they were in a different place and yet convinced police jury Judge that they were guilty. So how does that happen? You know, so that I think shared these kinds of discussions. So it's not a full talk about the film. What is the film doing for you? What is the book doing? What is Beyonce's lemonade say? Hey, you know there there are other ways into the conversation than a direct conversation movie night. Those kinds of things. Nothing go next to Geoffrey in San Francisco. Hi, Jeffrey. Yes, Hi. I was just like you. I was listening to a programme about the binary construct and the police When it comes to Asian population way don't feel there's not much of anything that's wrong when police Is I have personal experience being stopped by police. The fear is that I know for sure I'll get a ticket. You know, I might not be shot or anything like that. But and that the fear Israel and Control finally does not work. It's not binary, sure, but the resonance is strong and that I got that coming that that there is structural involved structure essential involved here that needs to be looked back..

"Week. We discussed chauncey early life. And how his obsession with wealth led him to commit to ransom kidnappings as part of a master plan to extort the ten wealthiest men in Hong Kong? His first target was thirty one year old. Victor Lee the son of Hong Kong's wealthiest man Li ka-shing this week we'll delve into the fallout of lease kidnapping. And how it inspired Chung to go after the forty seven year old property development tycoon. Walter Kwok will also discuss. How an unexpected cooperation? Between Hong Kong and mainland China ultimately led to Chung's demise when sixty eight year old billionaire Li ka-shing into his front door on the night of May Twenty Third Nineteen Ninety six. He was expecting to see his son. Victor apologized for being so late instead. He found himself face to face with the infamous criminal. Forty-one-year-old chauncey calm and four other armed. Men Leave recognized Chung immediately. He was wanted by the police for multiple crimes including two high profile robberies at the Kai. Tak Airport the second of which had been the largest cash robbery in Hong Kong's history. There was hardly a person in Hong Kong. Who didn't know Chung secons name as Hong Kong's wealthiest Man Lee knew? It was no coincidence that the thief had chosen his front door to knock on but nothing could have prepared him for what Chong was about to say. The criminal informed Lee that he had captured his son. Victor and if Lee ever wanted to see him again he would have to pay two billion Hong Kong dollars now. We was stunned. He asked where they had taken. Victor but Chong shook his head and repeated the demand. Two billion dollars or victor was dead. Shaking Lee tried to assess how he could gather the money he knew as well as Chong that if anyone could access billions of dollars at a moment's notice it was him his company. Cheung Kong Industries had made him a multi-billionaire and victor was in line for the throne but Lee wasn't worried about the money or his company. He just wanted his son back on your shortland. A professor in political economy assesses that in kidnapping for ransom cases. The hostage is returned alive about ninety percent of the time on. This is because the kidnapper is usually willing to negotiate in feasible deal can often be reached. Shortland also stresses that when faced with a ransom kidnapper dilemma. One should not immediately give in to the criminals demands. The hostage taker is likely to interpret this as evidence that more money is available and they will continue to up the ransom amount. Instead shortland advises keeping the criminal in the dark about one's financial resources. The captive will typically be released for a fraction of the original demand of course most individuals when faced with a kidnapper. Aren't thinking like rational business people. They're more concerned with the release of their loved. Ones and their minds are racing with worst case scenarios like torture and execution but wittingly or not Li ka-shing did the right thing shaking. He told Chung that he couldn't gather so much money at a moment's notice but he would try to come up with what he could. He certainly didn't give so much money lying about in his home. Leah's Chung if he could go to the bank for a withdrawal but the criminal shook his head this could arale suspicion and possibly alert the authorities when cheeky move on lease part and the whole plan could fall apart Lee understood and said he would do his best but he knew there was no way together that much money from inside the house under the supervision of Chung and his men Lee drained every hiding place and wallet in his home. He tried to come up with enough cash and valuables to satisfy the steep ransom demand. All the while worrying about his poor son finally having exhausted all his immediate resources. Li presented Chung with his loot. He knew it wasn't enough but he hoped Chung would settle for it surely he couldn't be expected together two billion if he wasn't even allowed to go to the bank. Lee watched with dread as the men counted their spoils. They were one billion short. Chung glared at Lea- incredulous. He could hardly believe that. A man as wealthy as Li ka-shing could only cough up half the amount on a smaller scale. Chong himself knew what it meant to be wealthy. His criminal escapades had paid off and his double life was lavish to him. Money was something to gamble with and enjoy and Chong's own home reflected. This opulence but Lee was a different breed. He was shrewd he invested. And he certainly didn't keep two billion dollars lying about his comparatively modest mansion once again. Li explained that he couldn't come up with two billion unless John allowed him to go to the bank and for the first time the criminal considered it he could get away with the full amount. If everything went smoothly but ultimately Chung couldn't risk it. If there was one place he had sworn never to go back to. It was prison. Besides one billion dollars was a lot of money. Five Times the amount he had obtained in his last airport robbery and it was plenty to fund his lavish lifestyle but grudgingly. He agreed to settle for one billion dollars half his original ask. He ordered Li ka-shing to pack up the money for him as Lee placed the cash. In bags he has Chong why he was doing this. Chung replied. I take unconventional steps to get rich. Money is the most important thing in life. But it's only me who can get away with kidnapping tycoons Charleena's men grabbed the bags of cash. Jong delivered a final warning if Lee or victor ever told the police about the kidnapping they would be dead. We nod and watched as the vans sped off into the night. Now all he could do was wait hoping that Chong would hold up his end of the bargain meanwhile victor was locked inside. Chun's hideout just over the border in mainland China. It had only been a few hours since his capture when his captors finally returned they blindfolded Victor and hurried him outside into a van as they drove. Victor imagined the worst. Perhaps they were taking him away to be murdered. His body could be buried somewhere. It would never be found and victor's family would never know why their son had disappeared. It was all too confusing and sickening for victor to come to grips with a few hours later. The van rolled to a stop. The car doors opened in several hands helped victor as he stumbled onto the sidewalk. He felt the crisp night air on his skin has one of his captors began untying his blindfold as it fell away. Victor recognized his surroundings. He was standing in the driveway of his father's house. In deep water. Bay Hong Kong Victor was bewildered. Was He being released? Was his family going to be harmed. He turned around and for the first time. Locked eyes with his captor the infamous Chunky Kong as victor stared at Chung. He could hardly register who this person was and what they wanted but before he could make sense of the situation. Chong stepped forward. He grabbed victor's face leaned in and planted a kiss on his forehead. Then he told victor he had been a good boy and he promised never to harm him or his family again back in his hideout. Chon divided the spoils amongst his comrades keeping forty percent for himself. He was happy that it pulled off. Such a new and brave stunt it was proof to Chung that. His master plan was feasible if he could kidnap the son of the wealthiest man in China and get away with it then he could kidnap anyone especially the rest of China's

"Avail in the end to Chung's men turned on him and September of Nineteen Ninety one. He was tried for the armed robbery and sentenced to eighteen years in prison. We'll Chunky Kong was no stranger to life behind bars. This time was different. It was wealthy now and a respected. If elusive member of Hong Kong's high-society. He couldn't believe that the police had the audacity to lock him up in his mind. These officers were the real criminals. They took money from the taxpayers and used it to go after innocent. People like him as opposed to violent offenders. This perspective isn't uncommon among criminals. Stanton knee SAM now. A clinical psychologist reports that nearly all criminal offenders view themselves as good people. They often excuse their behavior by citing their religion and good deeds or by stating that other criminals have committed more heinous crimes than themselves while in prison. Chung claimed that he was treated. He alleged that in order to get a confession from him. Police officers hit him with sticks and whipped him with belts he also said. They tortured his wife leaving both of them with scars. Chong wasted away in prison losing any hope of speedy appeal however only eighteen months into his lengthy sentence lock was back on Chung side. During one of his appeals. A guard who was present at the Kai. Tak robbery failed to properly identify Chung. The charges were dropped in June. Nineteen ninety five. The forty year old Cheung Kong was released from prison but John was hardly in the mood to celebrate his newfound freedom. His time behind bars had left him. Extremely bitter what. Good were his promises to remain nonviolent. If he ended up in prison with the murderers anyway to make matters worse his own triad brothers had betrayed him. The UNBREAKABLE BONDS OF THE TRIAD BROTHERHOOD. Apparently could be broken. Chang's honor codes seemed irrelevant to him now. He found himself at a crossroads and decided to move forward alone. All he had to do was pick his next crime at this point. Chun had run the gamut of armed robbery yet proven to himself that he was as capable of executing seemingly impossible heists as he was small theft he felt confident that he can pull off a crime of even greater magnitude. It also had to be more lucrative. Prison HADN'T TAMED. Chung's appetite for wealth. If anything it made him more insatiable Roderick Broadhurst a professor of criminology noted that Chun's willingness to go to extremes for money isn't really uncommon. We live in a society measured by wealth and status. So it's unsurprising that when people can't earn the money they desire through conventional means. They turned to innovative. In sometimes illegal methods. Chung was no exception. He was obsessed with money and he would stop at nothing to feed his greed. With this goal in mind he settled on his most radical scheme. Yet it was going to kidnap the ten richest men Hong Kong and hold them for ransom. Coming up Chung goes after his first victim back to the story in June. Nineteen ninety-five forty-year-old. Cheung Kong had recently been released from his second stint in prison. But this time he made no effort to turn his life around and go legit he had gotten a taste of the good life and he was willing to do anything to hold onto it including kidnapping people for ransom. Chong had devised a dramatic scheme. He was going to abduct the ten wealthiest men in Hong Kong and hold them for ransom. Having settled on this plan Chung got down to the specifics who to kidnap I ultimately. He decided on thirty one year old. Victor Lee the son of one of Hong Kong's wealthiest businessmen and the heir to his father's Fortune Chauncey. Kahn had a lot in common with victor's father. Sixty eight year old. Li ka-shing neither grew up particularly wealthy and both men had taken huge risks that resulted in vast wealth. But while Chong used illegal means Li ka-shing had honed his legacy honestly in one thousand nine hundred ninety six sixty eight year old businessman. Li ka-shing was the richest man. In Asia. Hong Kongers affectionately referred to him as Superman for his quintessential rags to riches tale Li ka-shing and his family fled to Hong Kong from mainland China during the Second World War. Shortly afterwards lease father died of tuberculosis saddling. His sixteen year old son with financial responsibility for the whole family Lee began working at a factory where he was eventually promoted to manager by the age of twenty two. He had saved up enough meager earnings to open his very own plastics factory. Cheung Kong Industries Lease Company proved to be massively successful and he used his profits to branch out into other lucrative industries shrewd businessman. He invested in energy solutions technologies and building developers throughout the world as well as real estate in Hong Kong in spite of his wealth. Li ka-shing was well loved. He had a solid reputation for being a man of his word stating that a verbal yes or no is as good as a written contract and he was a very modest family man. His pride and joy in life was his son. Victor Thirty one year old. Victor had spent his formative years being groomed to take over. Cheung Kong Industries. He studied civil engineering at Stanford University before moving to Vancouver where he oversaw one of his father's subsidiary companies Husky Energy. When Victor came aboard the company was doing quite poorly but victor side as an opportunity to prove himself by one thousand nine hundred ninety Husky energy was thriving and Victor. Li had been promoted to co-chairman impressed by his sons initiative. Li ka-shing invited victor to return to Hong Kong and worked directly underneath him at Cheung Kong headquarters by Nineteen ninety-six thirty one year old. Victor was well established at Cheung Kong. Little did he know that criminal mastermind. Cheung Kong was watching his every move. Chung's men gathered information. About what time victor left home in the morning? How long it took him to get to work. What kind of car? He drove and where he went to lunch. Once Chung piece together victor schedule he discovered that on May Twenty Third Nineteen ninety-six. Victor was scheduled to visit his father's home in deep water. Bay Chung thought. This was as good a time as any to strike the evening of May Twenty Third. Victor wrapped up his last meeting for the day. He was looking forward to a quiet night with his family and his dark blue. Nissan President Limousine was waiting outside for him but Chunky Kong and four other men were waiting for him to victor. Li casually tossed his briefcase into the back seat of the Waiting Limo. But before he had a chance to slide into his seat he was blindsided. Five men tackled him shoving a blindfold over his face in a split second before he was blindfolded. Victor caught a glimpse of the assault. Rifles that Chung in the four other men were carrying you felt calloused hands. Hold his arms behind his body while someone else bound his wrists and legs with chains. Victor heard several different voices but he couldn't tell how many from what he could tell. One man was in charge. The whole ordeal happened. In a matter of seconds even victor's driver couldn't react fast enough to help Chung and his men tossed victor into a waiting truck and started driving hours past. Victor had no idea where they were headed. He was worried they had crossed the border into China or his chances of being discovered were slim after what felt like ours. Victor was dragged from the car and tossed into a small dark place that had wooden walls and no windows. This was hardly a room. It was more like a wooden crate. The kind used for shipping cargo one of the henchmen handed victor a bowl of steamed pork and rice. He accepted not knowing when or if he was going to get any more food. Victor wondered if he should just ask the man what was going on or what they wanted from him but that could potentially be more dangerous. You decided to keep his mouth shut. All he could do was wait for answers. Meanwhile at Lea- ka-shing's palatial home in Deep Water Bay Road Victor's billionaire father anxiously awaiting his arrival. Dinner was almost ready. And it wasn't like victor to be so late. Finally the doorbell rang. One of the maids went to the door. Expecting to see victor but her jaw dropped in terror when she saw a different familiar face to recognized him from the newspaper. Chunky Kong the criminal. Who Had Rob Kai Tak? Airport Chung demanded to see Li ka-shing immediately. He informed -ly that if he ever wanted to see his son again it would cost him two billion Hong Kong dollars..
