Victims of Sikh Temple Shooting Memorialized

by Associated Press posted Aug 10 2012 3:48PM
  OAK CREEK, Wis. (AP) - U.S. Attorney General Eric Holder has told mourners memorializing six victims of a Sikh temple shooting in suburban Milwaukee that America is rallying around them in support. 
 
     Holder says the fatal shooting rampage at the Oak Creek temple Sunday was not only an attack on the Sikh community, but an attack on the values of America itself. He says the Sikh community has inspired the country with its compassionate response to evil. 
 
     Holder was one of the last speakers at the memorial service Friday that drew thousands to the Oak Creek High School gymnasium where open, wooden caskets of the six victims were on display.
 
     Gov. Scott Walker, U.S. Rep. Paul Ryan, and other dignitaries were among those who attended the ceremony.
