But when I see this tossed around on social media, I cut some slack. The man’s brother was just killed. Who knows, even if the situation wasn’t the same, what I would do? I get it. I know why people are tying to make something of it. I certainly don’t condone what he said. But again, he is going through the shock and grief of a lost loved one. And not lost by natural cause or unfortunate accident, which can also bring forth grief and anger. His brother was shot and killed. Even if the facts show the shooting to be justified, it’s still his brother. So give him a little breathing space.
