Kim Nguyen Latest Victim of LAPD’s Olympic Division

Kim Nguyen: LAPD Victim

This is Kim Nguyen a few moments after she “fell” out of an LAPD patrol car in the early hours of March 17, 2013. Her left bra strap is broken and top of her dress is pulled down to her waist.

Her jaw was shattered. She lost most of her front teeth. She had to be put in a medically induced coma because of bleeding to her brain. When she awoke a few days later, she found bruising on the inside of her thighs.

This is what she looked like two hours before she met the LAPD.

Kim Nguyen: LAPD Brutality Victim

What happened? After a night out in Koreatown, Nguyen and two male friends were waiting in a restaurant parking-lot for a designated driver to pick them up. Two LAPD officers drove by in a marked patrol car, stopped, and approached Nguyen.

After briefly questioning Nguyen and her friends, the officers left, but circled back, as Nguyen was running across the street toward a late-night cafe. She was then arrested for public intoxication on 6th Street between Oxford & Serrano. The officers refused to tell her friends where exactly she was being taken. Her friends were told they would need to call the police department to locate her.

On their way to taking her to jail, right after the patrol car passed through Olympic & Grand in downtown, Nguyen allegedly jumped or fell out.



What you see in the screenshot above is her on the street… That bruising on her face, the broken bra strap, and the pulled-down top of her dress were supposedly because of the fall.


The arresting officers have been identified as David E. Shin (신은총) and Jinseok Oh (오진석) of Olympic Division.

No one had any idea what happened on March 17 until the surveillance video was uncovered.

Unlike most other victims in the Koreatown area over the years who are undereducated or undocumented or have been made to disappear, Miss Nguyen has enough resources and cognizance of her rights to pursue legal suit. It was also very fortunate that there was video footage that blatantly contradicted the official lies.

Miss Nguyen has a bachelor’s degree from UCLA and an MBA from Loyola Marymount University. She is still facing many surgeries as a result of the trauma of that night.

TIMELINE OF EVENTS

March 17, 2013

The incident occurs. Paramedics say when they arrived, Ms. Nguyen was in handcuffs and sprawled on the street. The officers tell paramedics she fell out of their vehicle as they accelerated 10 mph from a stop at the traffic-lights intersection.

March 18

A family member of Ms. Nguyen files a citizen complaint with the LAPD.

Ms. Nguyen has been placed in a medically induced coma to prevent the bleeding from damaging her brain. She is in a coma for six days. When she awoke, she found bruises all over her body, including the inside of her thighs. Her jaw is wired shut for two months to allow it to heal.

June 19

LAPD’s Legal Affairs Division informs Internal Affairs of a “claim for damages” filed on behalf of Ms. Nguyen. Such action is understood to be a precursor to a civil lawsuit.

July 3

A civil lawsuit is filed by Ms. Nguyen’s lawyers at the Los Angeles Superior Court.

September 1

No movement on LAPD’s part. Ms. Nguyen’s lawyer goes public with a video that clearly shows the officers had lied in their statements to the paramedics.

LAPD tells the media that the department is nearing the end of their internal investigation, which they claimed to have initiated in March.

December 6

In a sworn deposition, Ms. Nguyen says one of the officers was groping her in the back of the patrol car in the minutes before she ended up on the pavement. Specifically, he was grabbing at her breasts, yanking at her ear to get her to face him, and pulling the inside of her left thigh, presumably to get her to open her legs.

January 9, 2014

No movement on LAPD’s part. Ms. Nguyen’s lawyer informs the media that she was deposed by the city attorney’s office in December. A video clip is aired that shows her talking about the officer’s attack on her person.

To this day, neither David E. Shin (신은총) nor Jinseok Oh (오진석) has been taken off the field. They continue to patrol the streets of Koreatown and Pico-Union, pulling over women for alleged traffic violations.

JIN-SEOK OH, LAPD

Jinseok Oh (오진석) was twenty-six years old when he graduated from the Los Angeles Police Department academy in January 2009.

He moved to the United States with his family at the age of 13 and is considered to be of the 1.5 generation, a group that bears the influence of Korean men known for their abuse of Vietnamese women. He is a graduate of La Mirada High School and majored in criminology in Cal State Long Beach.

He started working at Central Division in downtown L.A. in February 2009 and had been transferred to Olympic Division by 2013.

“Jin” Oh was named one of the defendants in the Kim Nguyen case in 2013. He is close friends with the other defendant, David E. Shin.

The Kim Nguyen incident happened on March 17, 2013. Jinseok Oh proposed to his Korean Air girlfriend Jisun Lee on March 23 in the presence of his partner David Shin.

Jin S. Oh is widely believed to be the officer who was driving as David Shin was allegedly molesting Ms. Nguyen in the back of the patrol car.



The video of what happened to Kim Nguyen was released to the public in September 2013. Jisun Lee proceeded with her wedding to Jinseok Oh in October 2013.

As of January 2014, Kim Nguyen has not received any explanation or apology for what happened to her or any compensation for the medical costs of the life-altering injuries from her traumatic experience while in LAPD custody.

Lawsuit filed against LAPD’s David Shin and Jin-seok Oh

A civil lawsuit has been filed by 28-year-old Kim Nguyen against the LAPD and two of its officers over an incident that occurred in the early morning hours of March 17, 2013.

On that date, after a night out in Koreatown, Nguyen and two male companions were waiting in a restaurant parking-lot for a sober friend to pick them up. Two LAPD officers drove by in a marked patrol car, stopped, and approached Nguyen.

Kim Nguyen: LAPD Brutality Victim

After briefly questioning Nguyen and her two friends, the officers left, but circled back, as Nguyen was running across the street toward a late-night cafe.

She was arrested for public intoxication, with her friends not being told where she was to be taken. They were informed that they would need to call the police department to locate her.

As their vehicle traveled east along Olympic Boulevard, a surveillance camera on a nearby building recorded video showing the vehicle approaching the intersection at Grand Avenue at 3:08 a.m.

Kim Nguyen: LAPD Victim 2013

Seconds later, the surveillance camera pans a few feet and shows Nguyen lying in the street with the top of her dress down around her waist and her face in the advanced stages of swelling.

Nguyen said she does not remember falling out of the patrol car, but said that she could not have attempted to open the door because according to the police she was handcuffed.

Her jaw was shattered and three different surgeries had to be performed on it. She suffered bleeding on her brain. She also lost several teeth.

The arresting officers are David E. Shin and Jin S. Oh of LAPD’s Olympic division.

People who have seen the surveillance footage and are familiar with the modus operandi of local police officers are speculating that Miss Nguyen was a victim of sexual assault, although she has yet to issue a statement on the matter. (Update: In a deposition given in December 2013, she confirmed an assault.)

Miss Nguyen has a Bachelor of Science degree from UCLA and an MBA graudate degree from Loyola Marymount University.
