#ChargeDavidShin #ChargeDavidShinNow

With a class comprising of 29 students, LAPD officer David E. Shin (신은총) graduated from the Los Angeles Police Department academy on December 3, 2010. He had earlier studied Criminal Justice [sic] at UC Irvine.

Shin’s family migrated from South Korea to the United States in 1992. He lived in Southern California before moving to Tennessee, where he graduated high school in 2002. His first assignment after graduating from the academy was in Wilshire Division.



Easily spotted among LAPD officers because of his short height, glasses, and receding hairline, this 1.5-generation Korean American churchgoer is suspected of being the officer in the back of the patrol car with Miss Nguyen.

As of January 2014, he has not issued any public statement on his role in the Kim Nguyen case as a member of the notorious Olympic Division, which has jurisdiction over Koreatown. He is close friends with his accomplice in that incident, Jinseok Oh.

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.

It’s been conjectured that Jin S. Oh was the officer who was driving as David Shin was allegedly with the handcuffed 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 2015, 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.
