I live in Milwaukee and I was actually pulled over by the FBI because I had no idea this was going on. I was supposed to go bowling with some friends. I just had to drive around. If you didn't hear:
I know a few people who go to that temple (they're fine). I just don't get why someone would do this.
There's a lot of talk that, since he's a white supremacist, that he is too goddamn stupid to tell the difference between a Sikh and a Muslim because they both wear turbans. I don't know about that.
Why? I'm an atheist but as far as religions go I think the Sikh are pretty damn cool. They preach nothing but tolerance, and consider themselves "saint warriors" (their words, not mine). After their services at this temple they serve a dinner and anyone who comes by (even if they didn't go to the service) can eat free of charge.
Fox News link above obviously wouldn't do this but many news outlets describe him as being "far right" but I don't know when "far right" started meaning psychotic mass-murdering racist.
Mass shootings are never a joyous occasion but this one really confuses and angers me. They're such good people.
The shooter got a few rounds into one of the police officers on the swat team, and that wounded officer is the one who eventually killed him. He's now in the hospital but is expected to make a full recovery, which is just amazing.
