Counter Stories

Minnesota’s Hmong population lost a Secret War Veteran this month after Saint Paul Police shot and killed him in his apartment complex. The man, Yia Xiong, who only spoke Hmong and was hard-of-hearing, died when he did not respond to commands made by police. The crew finds themselves, yet again, talking about the unnecessary loss of a BIPOC person at the hands of the police, and are joined by community organizer Marsha Allen as the community continues to demand answers and action. Guest: Marsha Allen, Justice for Yia Xiong
