Authorities Search for Men Who Shot, Killed Swap Meet Worker (Hoodie wearing thugs)
The Victorville Daily Press ^ | Tuesday, March 27, 2012 | Beatriz E. Valenzuela

VICTORVILLE • While friends and family are mourning the loss of a 58-year-old Victorville man, authorities are still searching for the men who shot and killed the Korean immigrant Monday afternoon during a robbery, San Bernardino County Sheriff's officials said.

“He was just a really good guy,” said a store owner whose shop is only a few doors away from where the murder took place just outside the indoor swap meet on La Paz Drive and Seventh Street. The store owner did not wish to be identified.

One of the three robbers shot and killed Inho Lee after the men had already left the indoor swap meet on Monday afternoon carrying several items from a jewelry counter, according to reports.

According to witnesses and other business owners, Lee owned a small tool shop inside the swap meet and did not own the jewelry counter which was the apparent target of the thieves.

Two business owners confirmed Lee was a police officer in Korea before he immigrated to the United States.

“I think he was just trying to help because of his background being a cop in Korea,” the local merchant said.

Authorities received several 911 calls at about 3:40 p.m. reporting the robbery and shooting, according to a release.

Witnesses reported seeing three black men — at least two of them armed with handguns — jump out of a white vehicle, possibly a Jeep, and run inside the swap meet.

Maybe a little “profiling” could have prevented this crime.?.?

Also, I’m a Texan who’s just visited California and Florida a few times so I’m no expert... but my understanding is that those States have lots of warm weather. So, I’m not following why a hoodie is necessary. Then again I don’t understand the size 50” waist jeans around a 30” waist. Guess I’m clueless on fashion, but at least I am observant and armed.

Hey according to Obama’s people, its OK for blacks to kill people because it makes up for slavery and stuff. You can’t defend yourself when your getting your ass kicked by one, just stand still, take it, and hope that they eventually stop

To decide if this is really "news," the only relevant question must be asked:

If Obama had a son, would he look like the Korean victim or the hoodie thugs?

Hoodies and Burkas: Why does the radical Left and their useful idiots wants to prohibit normal suspicion of those in clothing that hides identity? Just check the google search returns:

502,000 results for search on [ suspect hoodie "black male" ]

275,000 results for search on [ suspect burka escape ]

To make America defenseless against violent minority elements who can help them destroy it.

You have to really feel good about how hard young black ‘headliners’ work to further the cause of the African-American citizen. We caucasians have struggled for generations to overcome the adverse affects of white-trash, drunk-druggie, thuggery and anarchy contributed to society by our white counterparts. We understand what good, upstanding, hard working, tax paying African American citizens must feel in shame at the actions of these young punks. They are as good as they will ever be.

Glad you asked. For me personally, I will never forget the evening a young man approached me in a parking lot wearing a gray hoodie. I couldn’t see his face very well, but I remember clearly the gun. I gave him my wallet, he took off, and I thought about how my life was almost traded for all of $20 and some credit cards.

I’ll argue that a person wearing a hoodie is suspicious in CONTEXT. 1) Wearing a hoodie in a warm climate CA or FL seems odd... maybe it was cold out. 2) When we see criminals on TV, such as those CCTV recordings, seems like they’re often wearing a hoodie... 3) When we see anyone approach a retail store, bank, wearing covering that hides their identity... I wouldn’t want to be the 3a.m. shift at at a gas station and have someone at the door wearing a hoodie. Or, a teller at a bank when a person enters wearing a ski-mask.

My 8 year old son wears a hoodie. I’m quite sure he’s not a part of this ‘thug life’ or a ‘gangsta’. He’s an A student, church goer, and the only violence I see him carryout is against ‘The Empire’ while he plays Lego Star Wars on his Wii. So I get your point, but think it’s a matter of what context such clothing is worn.
