View Full Version : Indians Shot in Kansas

An Olathe man who reportedly told two strangers — Garmin engineers originally from India — to “get out of my country” before he shot them in an Olathe bar was charged Thursday with first-degree murder in the death of one of the victims.

Adam W. Purinton, 51, allegedly shot Srinivas Kuchibhotla, 32; Alok Madasani, 32, of Overland Park, and another bar patron, 24-year-old Ian Grillot of Grandview.

Kuchibhotla died at a hospital after the 7:15 p.m. shooting in Austins Bar & Grill near 151st Street and Mur-Len Road.

Purinton also is charged with two counts of attempted first-degree murder in the shootings of Madasani and Grillot. Witnesses said Grillot was shot after he intervened.

This is such a distressing thing. Even if you aren't a Muslim, you get targeted. This event has a lot of continuity with the attack against the Wisconsin Sikhs a few years ago. Both situations demonstrated the intolerance and miseducation of Americans. I am encouraged by the guy that helped stand up for them though, he is a brave man.

This is what happens when idiots get access to guns and when people keep falsely asserting the lie that foreigners including illegals are not protected by the law. Kudos to Grillot for doing the right thing.

I have no words. It is really sad that those things keep happening.
This is where hate and fear for all strange and unknown leads.

This is a sad incident, there are irrational people on all sides of the political spectrum. I hope this man gets prosecuted and charged with the crime, killing of innocents is never justified.

This news story is so horrible and sad. We better get ready for more things like this. A lot of people think it's okay to hate.

This is a terrible occurrence and it's a shame that it's not the only of its kind. It's pretty well known that generally brown-looking people are attacked fairly often in the UK, US, Canada etc simply for looking similar to Middle Eastern. Hell, Sikhs wear turbans but that isn't really much of a clue to some jumped up racist. No one should be attacked for their skin tone or faith regardless, however.

It is sickening. But at same time people are attacked for being white or for being Christian.
No one never does anything to that since its politically correct thing to hate white christians.

Well I'm from India, and it is quite bitter to me by the way I love Americans. We really welcome American s to our country
