  1. My God…what could this band director have been thinking? Was this supposed to show people what could happen? I have racked my brains but can come to no sane conclusion. Had I been a member of that band, I think I would have refused to participate. It has obviously incited much anger, which hopefully will not develop into violence. My thoughts and prayers to the officers who were killed, their families and their department. May you rest in peace.
