Gone In 41 Seconds — Police Quick to Kill Korean Artist
Feb 24, 2008
LA HABRA, Calif. — On the afternoon of December 31, 2007, two police officers encountered Michael Cho in the parking lot of a liquor store in La Habra, a small, generally quiet city in Orange County, California. It didn’t take long for the meeting to go bad. After less than a minute the officers unleashed a barrage of bullets on the 25-year-old artist, ending his life - and setting off an ongoing cascade of protests across Southern California’s Korean American community.Computerized police logs obtained by New America Media suggest the officers quickly turned to deadly force when they confronted Cho, whom they suspected of vandalism. According to the Computer Automated Transcript documenting the incident, at 2:04 p.m. the cops contacted their dispatcher to say they’d located Cho. “Out with the subject near the liquor store,” the transcript reads. Just 41 seconds later they radioed dispatch again, this time saying they’d shot the suspect and now needed paramedics to attend to him. “Shot fired, Suspect down, Medics requested,” reads the transcript. In the aftermath of the killing, Cho’s family has publicly condemned the department, saying the officers rushed to shoot Cho, rather than using less lethal tools like pepper spray or Taser stun guns to subdue him.
“The police killed my son like a dog,” Cho’s mother, Honglan Cho, recently told the La Habra City Council. According to Shelly Lynn Kaufman, an attorney for the Cho family, the fusillade of bullets left ten holes in his body.
Living cheap is the new green

Right in the Tauries.
It is not about who pays for the date. It is not about who moves the couch. It is not about who kills the bugs. It is not about who cooks the dinner. It’s not even about who stays home with the kids, as long as the decision was made together, after thinking carefully about your situation and coming to an agreement that makes sense for your particular marriage and family.
It is about making sure that nobody ever has to do anything by “default” because of their gender. The stronger person should move the couch. The person who enjoys cooking more, has more time for it, and/or is better at it should do the cooking. Sometimes the stronger person is male, sometimes not. Sometimes the person who is best suited for cooking is female, sometimes not. You should do what works.
But it is also about letting people know that it is okay to change. If you’re a woman who wants to become stronger, that’s great. If you’re a man who wants to learn how to cook, that’s also great. You might start out with a relationship where the guy opens all the jars and the girl cooks all the meals, but you might find that you want to try something else. So try it.
Real life vs Societal expectations
Love love love boobies!!!
12. Do you forgive betrayal?
This is a tough one. I don’t think I do if the fault is grave. I think that though I truly consciously want to, but I never really do at a subconscious level. I might wanna look into that.
32. Have you ever experienced unrequited love?
For those of you unfamiliar with the word, unrequited means “not returned or rewarded” (so it’s not necessarily a case of a one-sided romance). Don’t we all get a little bit of either throughout our lives?
44. How many boyfriends/girlfriends have you had?
5.5 girlfriends. The 0.5 is complicated. All except the 0.5 from different countries, for the win.
25. Do you want to be in a relationship this year?
I don’t want to not be in one but I’m not precisely actively looking to engage in one; all goes without saying I am also not entirely sure whether I could actually manage my time well enough to have one.
82. Who is the last person you hugged?
Very last person I hugged: a girl I went on a date with yesterday, though it was a rather half-assed hugged (from my part, at least).
Last person I properly hugged: my secretary, who’s awesome, and my friend.
It was actually yesterday because of this girl who is a sister to me—she’s like my best friend in San Diego. I got jealous because I don’t get to spend as much time with her as I used to because I’m so busy, and now there’s all these other people that can enjoy her twice as long as I can because they also live right next to her (unlike me; I live rather far).
72. What words do you like to hear during sex?
I actually dislike talking during sex; I like to hear the sounds the bodies are making, along with how we interact with the environment and how our breathing changes depending on what we do to each other.
78. What’s your dirtiest secret?
I actually don’t have a dirtiest secret (lol). Everything I can think of is rather ordinary in that department.
I don’t really have a crush right now, sorry.
