Interestingly, I am returning to Chicago after a week in Canada where a lone gunman shot a dozen people or so, killing himself. I find this. I thought the quote and headline was about citizens upset they don’t have a suspect. Alas, the citizen just wondered who the dead person was.

A human I would say.

And the great tragedy that continues to play out with another police shooting a few weeks ago (suspect had gun and was rescuing for it; citizens protested even AFTER it was clearly shown) is that answers are few and far between. So is justice.

“You got a name yet?” one called out to officers on the other side of the red tape.

They didn’t. He had yet to be identified early Sunday morning.
