Man Wanted In 1999 Shooting Arrested By Federal Agents At LAX

LOS ANGELES (CBS)  — Federal agents at Los Angeles International Airport arrested a man who was on the LAPD’s “most wanted” list for allegedly shooting two people 12 years ago in Los Angeles, authorities announced Friday.

Richard James Kim, a 33-year-old United States citizen, was taken into custody Thursday as he arrived on a flight from Korea, said Jaime Ruiz of U.S. Customs and Border Protection.

CBP officers had searched law enforcement databases, and learned that Kim had an arrest warrant obtained by the Los Angeles Police Department, Ruiz said.

Kim allegedly shot two people in a gang-related dispute in 1999, Ruiz said, adding that two alleged accomplices who were juveniles at the time of the crime were previously arrested.

Kim was placed in the custody of the LAPD.

    The FBI and DEA fabricate evidence, steal from suspects and use murder to close bad cases.
    My dog was poisoned to death, a stolen car was run into the front of my house, gang members are harrassing me, I get death threats, BB guns are being shot at my car when I drive, my car is being tampered with, money and jewelry has been stolen out of my house and these corrupt DOD employees are using torture as a punishment.
    With very long term harassment and use of torture (sleep deprivation, stress positions, etc) the FBI and DEA are intentionally creating their own terrorists and criminals when evidence of any supposed crime does not support their investigation/harassment of a suspect.
    Typical D.O.J. Investigation except they have been harassing me for 20 years.
