Fairfax man killed before Google interview

Oakland, Calif. Police are offering a $20,000 reward for information leading to the arrests of two men who killed a Fairfax man during a robbery while he was visiting the San Francisco Bay area for a job interview.

Police say 45-year-old Jing Hong Kang was shot around 11:30 p.m. Sunday in downtown Oakland shortly after leaving a dentist's office.

Police say a female dental hygienist was helping Kang enter directions to his hotel in a rental car's GPS system when two men approached them demanding money.

Kang died at the scene. The woman was not harmed. The robbers escaped with some of Kang's belongings.

Police say Kang, a computer engineer and father of three, had a scheduled job interview with Google Inc. on Monday

It kills me that this day and age, a man who studied and worked hard to get to where he was, could be taken out of the world so easily. However, a jerk like Marion Barry or Joran Vandersloot stay like cockroaches.

Hey criminal bums: find better targets that cops won't really care about.

Odds are also true that he was stealing a job from an American worker.

@zcxnissan: How do you know he wasn't a U.S. citizen? (Let me was his "ching chong choi" name, wasn't it?) Or is being a U.S. citizen not American enough for you? Go get an education, you loser. Stop polluting the world with your ignorance.

Google has a long history of hiring H1B visa holders, so spare me your sanctimonious bs.

To zcxnissan:

Thanks for confirming that racism still exists. For a while there I was beginning to think that white people were decent human beings.

You know, going by your logic, the odds are also true that most white men are child molesters considering white men have a long history of molesting children. Odds are also probably true that a white man like you is a serial killer or rapist. How about we add that the odds are true that you probably like to have sex with animals.

Go to any bestiality website and that'll confirm the truth of those odds. So what's your occupation? Serial rapist, murderer, child molester, or animal rapist?
