Irvine shooting Assume you are a reporter for a local news organization who has received this statement by e-mail today. Your assignment is to write a story of between 325 and 350 words based on entirely on the statement. Be sure to carefully attribute the information to the police and keep in mind that much of what is reported are allegations. Some of what is reported below can be taken as fact, including the death and its apparent cause. Other information is at this point the police version of what happened. That does not mean it is not true, just that it must be properly attributed. Your lead ought to summarize the key facts, such as the alleged murder and arrest, but not include names or estimated times. Those kinds of details are best wrapped into the body of the story. Finally, ask yourself what is the best order of facts beyond the lead. STATEMENT FROM THE IRVINE POLICE DEPARTMENT TODAY’S DATE At approximately 11:30 last night, we received a telephone call from a person who identified herself as Sandra Kim. She sounded quite distressed in informing us that she had just arrived home to find her husband, Robert Kim, dead on the floor of the family’s Irvine home. We responded along with paramedics and arrived at the home in the 600 block of Birch Street in Irvine. Our officers, upon entering the kitchen, found the body of an Asian man who had been shot several times. It was determined he was deceased, the apparent victim of multiple gunshot wounds. He has since been identified as Robert Kim, 47, a resident of the home. Sandra Kim, 42, was at the residence and confirmed she had placed the call. In initial questioning, Mrs. Kim told officers her husband had many enemies, due to what she called his unethical business dealings and unpaid debts. Further, she asserted, it was likely one or more of Mr. Kim’s enemies committed the murder. However, officers determined that there were inconsistencies in accounts of her whereabouts between 7 pm and her reported arrival home at 11:20 pm. She became visibly nervous and agitated as the police interview continued, especially as they focused on her activities before the emergency call. Officers surveying the crime scene noted there were no signs of forced entry, suggesting that the killer had easy access to the home or was allowed in. A search of the premises turned up a.38 caliber handgun. It was wrapped in a cloth and inside a trash receptacle in a corner of the backyard. Mrs. Kim at this point then admitted her earlier account was inaccurate and offered this version of events: She and a few friends decided to go out for drinks. Mrs. Kim said she did not inform her husband, as he would not have approved. The couple had been undergoing severe marital difficulties, she said, mostlydue to his verbally and physically abusive nature. This problem had been ongoing for a few years, according to her, and recently had become more serious. Mrs. Kim claimed that he had struck her at least three times in the past six months. Our department has no record of such incidents, and Mrs. Kim added that she chose not to report them in the hope relations could be repaired through marriage counseling. According to Mrs. Kim, the couple has never attended counseling sessions. As soon as Mrs. Kim arrived home, she told officers, Mr. Kim angrily confronted her about her outing. He became extremely agitated and appeared on the verge of assaulting her, she said. At that point, Mrs. Kim allegedly retreated to a bathroom where she had hidden a handgun in the event she needed to defend herself from Mr. Kim. Mrs. Kim said she returned to the kitchen where she had been arguing with her husband. According to her, Mrs. Kim brandished the weapon and warned Mr. Kim that she would not hesitate to shoot him should he attempt to assault her. This act greatly enraged her husband, Mrs. Kim told officers, and he lunged at her. At that point, she fired the pistol, striking Mr. Kim numerous times. This attack was necessary, she asserted, to protect herself from grave bodily harm or death. Investigating officers determined that based on the available evidence, Mrs. Kim had to be taken into custody. Officers carried out the arrest without incident. She has been booked and charged with first-degree murder and illegal possession of a handgun The couple’s children, ages eight and ten, were asleep upstairs. They were unharmed. The children are in the custody of Children’s Protective Services pending placement with relatives. 888888888888888888888888888888888888888888888888888888888888888888888888888888 45 Globalization (a)Introductory paragraph.

(f)Discuss how could you the misperceptions that you identified for each of the 5Cs be used to educate and strategically partner with top executives within an organization? (g)Concluding paragraph. Many organizations are not aware of the complexities of employment law. The multitude of standards, acts, and regulations, combined with the changing landscape of employment law can hinder HR and top executives from educating themselves on all the legal issues that may pertain to their organization. These complexities only increase when a U.S. based organization partners with foreign corporations and their subsidiaries. Laws that govern global organizations depend upon the parameters of the organization’s structure. HR should never assume that the same laws will be in place when they move to areas outside the U.S. Failure to understand employment law when applied to the global industry can lead to costly misunderstandings and misinterpretations of the very law that works to protect organizations and its employees. In this last Assignment, youwill review The 5Cs of U.S. employment law: Human resource management lessons for U.S./foreign corporations and their subsidiaries from the Learning Resources to identify the ambiguities that encompass employment law in a global market. Now, respond to the following 2- to 3-page paper: Analyze common misperceptions and misunderstandings of U.S. employment law. o Identify one common misperception or misunderstanding for each of the 5Cs (cross-border, citizenship, compliance, control, and culture) o What might be the cause for each of these misperceptions and misunderstandings? o What about employment law on a global level makes it easy for organizations and employees to incorrectly perceive legal parameters?
