Last Day of Art Exhibit for Michael Cho, Artist Murdered by Police

Photobucket this saturday night (5/17) will be the closing program of the michael cho memorial exhibition. michael cho was shot and killed by la habra police officers on december 31st, 2007 in la habra, california. for me, this cop killing hit a lot closer to home as cho was a young asian american artist who recently graduated from ucla. police brutality is often portrayed as only a brown and black issue, but cho's death is a chilling reminder that police violence is also an issue that the api community must address. the closing event will be at: dangerous curve in LA's chinatown saturday, may 17 7-10pm please sign the online petition to demand a fair and quick investigation into cho's murder. also, see for yourself the ridiculous number of those murdered by cops. peep the game's latest song "911 is a joke (cop killa)" -tadillac
