Angers American Korean Association? How about La Habra citizens angered by the destruction of property this Korean caused? How about the lawsuit they have started? How about the disrespect they have for America and La Habra where they live? How about their denial of our laws? How about that?

First of all, there are two sides to every story. And before you judge a whole race of people, most of whom do abide by the law, get your facts straight.
I love people who think they have any kind of justification to tell a person to go back to whatever country they came from, who the hell do you think you are? You have no more rights as I do, as an American citizen, taxpayer, and a person.
America is made up of all types of people who make our country what we are today, including ignorant,imprudent,thoughtless people who are so completely clueless to how hate only aids in the problems of our "great country". Get a clue. If you can't help make things better shut your fucking mouth. No one wants to hear it.

Everyone is angered. Angered by the disrespect of this group of Cho supporters. Angered by the destruction the victim caused. Mostly angered by the hatefulness of the Korean community failing to respect our nation. There are 2 sides...pending a thourough investigation. La Habra citizens are angered. Rightfully so. Cho's supporters are abusive as demonstrated in numerous posts and their actions.

I think its more like white racism aand supremacy that is causing most, and I say most of the conflict here.

I see the type of savage and nativst remarks that typify the avg. ignorant white american and creates even more conflict than is necessary.

also, a human lifeis priceless compared to the destruction of property.

police overreacted here by shooting 11 times.

for the rest of you who respond to my comments in that same racial and arrogant manner, you prove yourself to be the ignorant savage I jut described.

if you ask me, these racists are jealous as to the achievements of these successful immigrants.
for some reason they feel that they are entitled to tell people to go back to their countries without knowing the full story of struggles.

the unfortunate thing is that these types of individuals make up the bloc of voters who voted the white affirmative action beneficiary george w. bush to office in 2000 and 2004.

it is scary to see these people give these types of opinions.

america is no longer just a european country. some people are going to learn it the hard way espousing racism such as this out in public.

Oh sure we all know that cops never abuse there power or shoot someone by accident. Seems that a few Cops have been a little bit trigger happy lately.
