Police shooting case

Irvine -- Subversity, a KUCI public affairs program, this evening looks back at the police shooting case that resulted in the death of Hong Il Kim in Orange two years ago. Last week, Federal district court judge Linda H. McLaughlin dismissed a civil rights suit filed by the family of Mr. Kim, who grew up in Orange County but had come back to the county after living in South Korea.

Kim was killed in a hail of dozens of bullets fired by police at his 4-runner after a police chase that began over an apparently minor traffic violation. Angela Oh, the Korean American community activist and lawyer, represented the Kim family in the case.

Subversity airs this evening from 5-6 p.m. on KUCI, 88.9 FM in Orange County. We will present a documentary look back at the case.
