Indian Killed in Racial Shooting at Kansas Bar

Indian Killed in Racial Shooting at Kansas Bar



An Indian engineer was killed in a shooting in a Kansas City bar on Wednesday, an attack that some eyewitnesses said could be racially motivated. Srinivas Kuchibhotla, 32, died at a hospital and his colleague, also an Indian, sustained bullet injuries after a white man opened fire in the crowded suburban bar. Adam Purinton, 51, the alleged shooter, thought they were Middle Easterners and was heard telling them to “get out of my country” at the time of the shooting. He was charged with murder and attempted murder on Thursday.

Here’s what we know about the incident:

The victims

Kuchibhotla is possibly the first casualty of the religious, racial and ethnic divisiveness that has swept the US following the election of President Donald Trump, with minorities such as Jews and Muslims reporting a surge in attacks on them and their institutions.

“The murder of Kuchibhotla is the first reported bias-motivated fatality in the United States after the bitter Presidential election,” according to the Hindu American Foundation.

Kuchibhotla was employed with the Garmin headquarters in Olathe. His colleague, Alok Madasani, was with him at the bar when they came under fire. Ian Grillot, a white man, was also injured in the shooting and reportedly put his life in risk to save the Indians.

Originally from Hyderabad, Kuchibhotla was a B. Tech in electrical and electronics engineering from the Jawaharlal Nehru Technological University. He had a master’s degree from the University of Texas, El Paso. Madasani graduated from Vasavi College of Engineering in 2006, and came to the US as a Master’s student at the University of Missouri-Kansas City.

Kuchibhotla is survived by his wife Sunayana, according to a GoFundMe page. The couple had no children.

The two Hyderabad men would visit the Kansas bar twice a week to have a smoke and a few Jameson whiskies, a server at the restaurant recalled. They were known as the “Jameson guys” at the bar where they were shot late on Wednesday.

Unfortunate. This mentally deranged shooter took it upon himself to enforce Trump's Immigration policies albeit incorrectly.
Blind followers will always be there and commit such acts.

Even though you probably did it unknowingly, this mentality has been propagated to such an extent that a hate crime by a white man is automatically labelled as an act of a "mentally deranged" person -- if this was a Muslim man it becomes a terrorist attack.

lone wolf he'd be called in such a case.. BTW, they are super conscious and careful in describing it as a terrorist or even a racist attack. It has huge implications in prosecution.

Re: Indian Killed in Racial Shooting at Kansas Bar

A great leader once correctly identified such people... the despicables. But she was trashed and humiliated by people who thought it applied to themselves... and she was outvoted.

You still do not seem to be getting it. Both situations are correctly identified. Unless you say brainwashed is akin to being mentally deranged. But I disagree.

Re: Indian Killed in Racial Shooting at Kansas Bar

I will say this unpopular thing. There is way too many freaking Indians every where, dime a dozen. If you want to get some respect, live with dignity then Indians need to reduce their population.

Ha! You are saying that a 'mentally deranged' Muslim cannot exist?

Re: Indian Killed in Racial Shooting at Kansas Bar

I saw a suggestion by a learned bong this morning on Twitter, hindu guys should put large tilak or teeka so not to be mistaken as muslim by an american.

Though seems trump bhakt, but his suggestion make mighty sense.

How will deranged person know Hindu or Muslim.. most Americans don't know Asia has India, Pakistan, etc.. they think Asia means Oriental i.e. Chinese, Korean, Japs.

Didn't they target Sikhs after 9/11 thinking they are Osama's cousins? Bandar kya jaane adrak ka swad

And it's not about Arabs or Muslims.. any alien is seen as outsider, no matter how many years you may have lived in US.

So sad.... wish aliens had the luck of Indian Muslims where they aren't shot, but only threatened with 'go to Pakistan'.
