Paul Kim, Church Enforcer of Family Discipline, Accused of Beating Teen with Metal Pipe

Paul-Kim_150.jpg
A man portrayed as a church enforcer of discipline on the children of church members has been arrested for allegedly beating an Irvine teen with a metal pipe at least a dozen times.

Paul Kim, 39, of Chino Hills, made his $100,000 bail Thursday at the West Valley Detention Center in Rancho Cucamongo after being arrested Tuesday on suspicion of felony child cruelty, according to the San Bernardino County Sheriff's Department.

According to the criminal complaint, the parents of the 15-year-old boy found him with a cigarette lighter and took him to the home of Kim, who attends the same La Habra church as the family, for discipline. Kim is accused of using a metal pole about an inch in diameter to repeatedly strike the boy, who suffered bruising to his legs.

An adult at the teen's school saw the bruises and called Irvine Police. That department investigated but turned the case over to the San Bernardino County Sheriff's Department after it was determined the actual lashes were apparently delivered in Chino Hills.

It's unclear which church the principle attended. Some reports refer to it as a Lutheran church in La Habra. Whichever congregation it is, sheriff's investigators fear other children there have received similar beatings.Meanwhile, the San Bernardino County District Attorney's office is also looking into the role of the teen's father in the incident under investigation.

The sheriff's department released this photo of Kim in case anyone has information that can help investigators. If you do, call Detective Tyson Niles of the sheriff's Crimes Against Children Detail at 909.387.3615.

"Which church the _principle_ attended"?? Maybe we should be asking what school you attended. It's PRINCIPAL, dude.

Reason#648 Why I Don't Trust Organized ReligionI am certain that if there is a God, he/she does not approve of this sadistic and ignorant bullsh#t.  His parents found a lighter?  Just a lighter? My parents found a pot plant once. They grounded me for a month and I wasn't allowed anywhere near the gardening supplies again.

I'm assuming the parents are culpable since they delivered the minor in question to Kim Jong Il jr up there?  What about them? 

And there is a Korean Lutheran church on Peyton and Chino Hills Pkwy.  I wonder if he got to beat kids there too?

It isn't about a school principal; they are not naming the victim so they refer to him as the "principle", i.e. the main person.

PIECE OF CRAP... yes. But pointing out that he is an Asian piece of crap has underlying racial connotations. Stay classy.

Actually, "principal", indicating the chief person, in this case of the case at hand, is the correct usage. "Principle" referers to a guiding precept or rule.

Is he not asian? are we not allowed to point out the obvious or state facts?  This is typical Libtard Logic. 

Now if he said Little Asian... Short Asian... Rice head... zipper head...Fish breath etc... then and only then would you be able to cry racism.

No, 909jeff, he's not asian. He's a gook. Although I'll bet he's short as well. And he obviously eats well. He has an acne problem. His hair is black. He's wearing a white shirt. Let us call him "white shirt". Not "short, fat pock-face asian", for that would be rude.

"your not allowed..."  Your?? YOUR? I think you mean "you're". As in "you are" . "your" is possession. YOUR attempt at insulting someone just kicked you in YOUR own ass. I am glad you spelled "bastard" correctly, or you might've sounded STUPID. I bet you're not even asian.

And I would like to point out that your id is not original you white/black/mexican/etc bastard. Oh, and your not allowed to cry racism over white/black/mexican bastard.... because words like white/etc are just descriptive words AND CAN NEVER BE USED IN A DEROGATORY MANNER.

dumbass.
