This may be incoherent and emotional

This night, June 4, 2014, three members of the Royal Canadian Mounted Police were killed and two are hospitalized with injuries in Moncton, New Brunswick.
I am asking everyone to send love and understanding to the families of the fallen and of the wounded, and to their fellow officers who are working so hard to find the perpetrator.
They know his name, and what he looks like, but not much else, yet. By morning they may know much more.
Please also send love and understanding to the family of the 24-year-old who chose to dress himself up in camouflage fatigues, take two large weapons, and go out to shoot police officers.

If, as could be the case, he has no family to love and understand him, perhaps we could find it in our hearts to forget his crimes for a moment, so that we might wonder what made him who he is today, a young man who kills policemen.

Oh, what a sad thing to happen. Did he just shoot the policemen or was there something else or someone else involved?

Punish, yes, but also learn so that others might be helped. .....oh gracious the news on the telly right this minute as I type is giving us a report - talk about immediacy.

So terrible. God be with everyone who lost loved ones and God help the perpetrator. Everyone has a story and it is unfortunate that sometimes it spills out onto innocent others. xx

He has been brought in, alive.

We've just had shootings in Seattle too. There's been an awful lot of shootings lately and it's frightening and too sad. I can't understand what would drive someone to shoot others to alleviate their own pain.
