Mourners gather to remember victims killed at Wisconsin Sikh temple
JSOnline: About 3,000 people filled the Oak Creek High School gymnasium in Wisconsin today to attend the funeral and memorial service for the six victims of Sunday’s Sikh temple shootings.
U.S. Attorney General Eric Holder was among those who spoke. “In the recent past, too many Sikhs have been targeted and victimized simply because of who they are, how they look, and what they believe,” he said. “This is wrong. It is unacceptable. And it will not be tolerated.”
