A Chinese who made arrests in L.A. along uniformed city police in an anti-Chinese government protest in Los Angeles was revealed to be Mr. Chester Chong (Zhuang Peiyuan). Mr. Chong was born in Hong Kong, and immigrated to California in 1982. The incident caught attentions because Mr. Chong was seen bearing an insignia unique to police in People's Republic of China.
When confronted by witnesses on the insignia, Zhuang immediately covered his insignia and fled from the scene according to witnesses. Monterey Park city police at the scene did not comment nor respond to media inquiry.
Epoch Times discovered this person had led a 76 members police delegation to visit their Chinese counterparts in Guangdong Province.
Zhuang is an incumbent provincial Senator representing Xinjiang in the 11th Chinese People's Political Consultative Conference (the upper house of the provincial legislature).
In Chinese media, Zhuang was described a captain retired from the USAF, and the current chief commander of the LAPD. The Seagull found neither claim to be true. Zhuang also holds an Honorary Doctorate in Business Administration from Armstrong University in California. The Armstrong University in California was not accredited by any accrediting agency recognized by the Secretary of Education; hence, a diploma mill.
