MoJo has the context. Apparently the Feds are considering this a case of domestic terrorism. Would that my fellow citizens would embody tolerance, setting foot in each other’s holy places to learn instead of to shoot. Would that those with powerful megaphones would preach such tolerance instead of ignorance and hate.
About 30 people were inside the Sikh Temple of Wisconsin in Oak Creek, Wisconsin, a suburb just south of Milwaukee, at 11:30 a.m. Sunday when gunfire broke out and at least seven people were killed, including a gunman who reportedly exchanged fire with a police officer. According to police, the gunman was killed and the officer was shot, wounding him critically. At least two other people were also injured. President Obama, Wisconsin governor Scott Walker (statement), and the Indian Embassy in Washington, DC have been briefed on the situation.
