"In 28 years of law enforcement, I have seen a lot of hate. I have seen a lot of revenge. I’ve seen a lot of anger. What I saw, particularly from the Sikh community this week was compassion, concern, support. What I didn’t see was hate. I did not see revenge. I didn’t see any of that. And in law enforcement that’s unusual to not see that reaction to something like this. I want you all to understand how unique that is."

— Oak Creek, Wisc. Police Chief John Edwards • Addressing a crowd gathered to honor victims of last weekend’s shooting at a Sikh temple in Oak Creek, Wisconsin on Tuesday night. This morning, FBI special agent Teresa Carlson revealed to members of the press that, despite previous reports that the shooter was killed by police, he actually died as the result of a self-inflicted gunshot to the head after being wounded by an officer returning fire.  source (viafollow)
