Peanut Gallery (UI killer suspects)

I understand journalistic style when it comes to reporting tragic events, but Eric McMillan wasn't just fatally wounded last month, as you suggest in your blog. Flat out he was killed in cold blood, or murdered take your pick, by two scumbags from Seattle who had no business being on the Palouse in the first place. Not to come down too hard on you - it just hits home for me (since I live less than 2 blocks from his apartment complex). That, and I'm used to a bit tougher language from you when it comes to the scum of society...

DFO: I can't blame Henry for being emotional re: the brutal murder of UI footballer McMillan. The shooting of this fine young man was as senseless as it gets. Whoever did the shooting is scum. Or double scum, if there was more than one killer. However, the two Seattle brothers being held for the killing are innocent until proven guilty. If they are found guilty, then I'll let you know what I think of them. It shouldn't be hard to figure out.
