Gustavo's Latest KCRW "Orange County Line": On Santa Ana Trying to Tell the World It's Safe After Kim Pham's Murder
Kim's killers are still at large; please call the above numbers with any info
The strangest reaction so far to the Kim Pham killing happened at a press conference last week, when Santa Ana Police Department Chief Carlos Rojas and Mayor-for-Life Don Papi Pulido both took time out from a murder investigation to tell the world that the city's downtown is safe. Pretty damn callous to care about a city's reputation in the middle of such a tragedy, ¿qué no?
But while I don't agree with their timing, I do agree with the sentiment--and, more than anything, I completely understand where they're coming from. That was the subject of my KCRW-FM 89.9 "Orange County Line" commentary yesterday.
