The vigil was for the original victim - the reason the neighborhood called 911 in the first place. Not for the shooter.I saw there was a candle light vigil for the shooter near the scene. At first, I was angry but as I watched the story, my attitude changed. I can't speak for anyone at all, but the atmosphere seemed pretty clear, they were mourning a friend and relative who obviously had some very serious issues. I have no problem with that and would like to think that anyone one of US would feel a terrible loss if someone we cared about were to die tragically and needlessly. My heart goes out to those who are in mourning. Of course better him than the Officer, but it's truly sad that ANYONE had to die.
And my feelings are based primarily on the fact that NO ONE started crying for Justice and blaming the cops. Again, I'm going on one newscast, who knows what was going on that wasn't shown, but my outrage diminished as I watched the story.
God Bless the Officer and thank GOD he's out of the hospital already, that's a great sign of his physical recovery, but as SOOTY pointed out, his psychological recovery must be attended to so that he can move on.
