Thousands brave freezing cold in vigil for Illinois shooting victims

More than 2,000 people braved sub-freezing temperatures in Illinois on Sunday for a vigil paying respects to five people killed and five police officers wounded by a factory worker. The victims included Trevor Wehner, a 21-year-old intern from NIU, who was on his first day on the job. The gunman was a felon who obtained a state permit to buy a firearm despite being legally barred from owning one.

Whenever the police makes arrests people protest it. Whenever the police don’t make arrests people get shot. It’s a cruel, cruel, world.

Another example where, if the laws already on the books were enforced, this would not have happened!
