Three decades ago, Paul Kim was a 15-year-old immigrant from South Korea who barely spoke English; he was living in a small Oklahoma town and wondering what future America held for him. This week, Kim, 44, of Northridge, was named a captain in the Los Angeles Police Department--the first Asian to achieve that rank in the city's history.
