The Peter Liang Case revisited

... And reasons why you should attend New York Hakka Conference even if you are not a Hakka Chinese

Chris Kwok is a lawyer. Shirley N. Lew is a journalist.

Last year the case of Peter Liang brought together the Chinese community to support a police officer on trial for the wrongful death of an unarmed black man in a Brooklyn Housing project. The case happened after a series of killings of unarmed black men by police in which police officers lost their jobs but were found "not guilty" by the court.

In a podcast interview Chris Kwok and Shirley N. Lew share their thoughts about Peter Liang. Chris Kwok is a lawyer and Shirley N. Lew is a journalist. Each brings their own unique perspective to this landmark case. Podcasts made by Chinatown Talk Radio in collaboration with Pucho Web Solutions.
