Ladies and gentlemen, you are getting a glimpse of what society looks like when laws are not enforced. Neighbors in Bellevue may start resorting to vigilante justice. They are tired of serial squatter Sang Kim and it looked like some were about to go beyond peaceful protests. Who brings a field hockey stick to a rally?

Backstory

Bellevue mom & pop landlord Jaskaran Singh says he’s fed up with King County’s broken legal system.

Public Protest

Korean American leaders are now joining the public shaming protest, calling Kim a “con man” and saying he’s a “disgrace to the community.” Organizers say more protests are on the way until this is resolved.

Support on both sides of the aisle

Big neighborhood support for Singh, including elected officials on both sides of the aisle.
