Seg. 1: Olathe Shooting Anniversary. Seg. 2: Safety In KC.

Segment 1: The South Asian community a year after the Olathe shooting.

A year ago, two friends met for a drink at an Olathe bar. An older regular got agitated and reportedly told them to "get out of my country" before opening fire, killing Srinivas Kuchibhotla and injuring Alok Madasani and Ian Grillot. A year later, we check in with a couple of people from the local Indian-American community. Has anything changed for them over the past year?

Segment 2, beginning at 24:30: Do you feel safe in Kansas City?

We explore whether KC is a welcoming place for any group or individual targeted by hateful rhetoric.

Correction: The initial post incorrectly identified A.C Thompson's role on the "Documenting Hate" project.
