They don't call it "lala land" for nothing. Yupeng Deng, 51, was arrested for creating a fake U.S. army unit and recruiting immigrants to join his bogus squad. He apparently gave his recruits military uniforms and marched them around a Los Angeles suburb. As well, he took them to an aircraft carrier, albeit one the happens to be in a museum in San Diego.

Deng isn't completely crazy. He told his recruits that they would become U.S. citizens if they joined his squad and charged them between $300 and $450 to join his wayward brigade. They were allowed to buy higher ranks with cash. According to prosecutors, the recruits were provided with fake documents and phony military identification cards.
