On the killing of Michael Brown and the Ferguson riots

On August 19, Jay Kim appeared on News Y to discuss the killing of an unarmed black teenager, Michael Brown, by a white policeman in Ferguson, Missouri and the protests and riots that followed the killing.

He talked about various issues on Ferguson such as the racial distribution of the population and the police there, the state government’s response to riots, the excessive armament of the police, the possibility of the riots spreading to other regions, the racial discrimination of the police, damage to Korean-American stores in the area, and President Obama’s returning to vacation after holding meetings at the White House concerning Ferguson.
