A resident of Cuyahoga Falls, Ohio, a member of a white gang, killied Karma Tamang

in a gang initiation.

Bishnu Tamang spent 18 years in a Bhutanese refugee camp.
No electricity. No heat. Little to eat. While there she married her husband, Karma. About three years ago, the couple and her three children escaped the squalor and emigrated to America, settling among a small circle of fellow Bhutanese in the North Hill area of Akron.
They dreamed of great things for their family.

On Wednesday, an emotional Bishnu Tamang confronted the Akron gang member who ended those hopes when he senselessly took Karma from her life almost exactly a year ago.
