If the killer was original from the UK or France and grown up in the US, would you think the western media will point the finger at UK or France? ...
I don't believe they pointed the finger at South Korea, did they?
If the gunman was from the UK or France, then of course this would be reported by the US media, in the same way that the fact that this guy was Korean, was reported.

South korea:three reations to the shooting tragedy
after U.S. confirmed identification of the gunman , the news stirred a great shock on every South Korean .but there are different reactions to the incident. the following 3 are very typical :
one , we(SK) feel sorry for the victims and should apologize to American people
I don't believe South Korea has anything to apologise for.
Obviously as friends of the USA they offer their condolences, and as the shooter's family may have relatives in SK, it is of more than usual interest to South Koreans, but I don't believe an apology is due from South Korea.
Neither would it have been necessary for China to apologise if it had been a Chinese gunman, or for the US to apologise had it been an American shooter in another country.
It was the tragic outcome of a sick individual, ethnicity irrelevant.

The answer that I have not heard by this time after the killings is what I have heard from the Amish famillies in the States "forgive and forget" ...
The victims of this shooting have many different cultural backgrounds and origins, from America, China, Canada, Latin America,Vietnam, Europe, India,Indonesia, Puerto Rico & Egypt.
They are not Amish, they will be going through their own private grief at the moment and may not be able to respond in the way you suggest. Who can blame them for that.
