Name any crime associated with gangs, and, chances are, Mr Kenneth Tan would have committed it. Drug peddling, doing the dirty work for loan sharks, selling bootleg VCDs and fighting were all in a day's work.
The only crime he shied away from was pimping. "I'm scared of karma. I'm scared that my daughters would be pimped by others when they grow up," said Mr Tan, now 32 and a father of two daughters.
