Thanh Van Quang Is Our "Citizen of the Week!"

OCW citizen of the week logo 1 2013.jpg

Little Saigon's wild Thanh Van Quang arrived at Wasco State Prison on Wednesday and, after an evaluation, corrections officials eventually will bus him to a more permanent home at a different California penitentiary, where he'll reside while serving a tough sentence.

You may remember my colleague Matt Coker reported earlier this month on Quang's sentencing hearing for committing one of Orange County's more bizarre crimes.

In Nov. 2012, he used a lighter to ignite a one-gallon container of gasoline inside Room 25 at the Pueblo Motel on Harbor Boulevard. The explosion blew him out of the door, risked the lives of the other motel occupants and caused more than $177,500 in damage. He wore embarrassing evidence of his stunt. Flames burned a portion of his hair and skin on his upper back.

Quang's defense lawyer claimed his client momentarily lost his mind and intended to burn clothes he'd placed outside of the second-floor motel room shortly before the blast, but accidentally lit the gas inside the room.

A prosecutor argued the defendant committed arson as a route to revenge against the motel manager, who'd intervened earlier in a shouting match Quang had with his guests.

Whatever the truth regarding motive, a superior court judge handed a convicted Quang a term of 33 years to life.

But before we close the book on this character it's only fitting to acknowledge all of his contributions to society.

Thanh Van Quang, Who Earned 5th Strike for Blowing Up His Ex-Motel Room, Gets 33 Years

Thumbnail image for Thanh-Van-Quang_300x200.jpg
For several minutes of supreme assholiness, Thanh Van Quang is going to be rotting in state prison for 33 years to life.

That's not entirely accurate because Quang's most-recent crimes--pouring gasoline in the room of a Santa Ana motel that had evicted him, setting off an explosion and fire--combined with five felony strikes to earn the Fountain Valley 38-year-old the long prison stretch.

Orly Taitz Allegedly Manufactures Tea Party Backing of Her CA Attorney General Run

"If Tea Party Nation or I endorse anyone in the California Attorney General's race, it won't be Orly Taitz," writes Judson Phillips.

Joseph Elija Ettima has been jailed awaiting trial since 2009 for allegedly murdering his grandmother and setting her house on fire while his 8-year-old brother and 3-year-old niece were inside.
