    Reed Scott does not represent the overwhelming majority of us who are still shocked and mortified by the fact that people were shooting at parade where there were children, elderly, women and men too for that matter. It sounds to me that she represents her self-serving interest. Why should the terror gripping our community be ignored by the main-stream? I'm upset with her for suggesting such damaging concept, to simply serve her own interest. I have not heard anyone in this community nor have I read anything from ANYONE in this community even remotely suggesting that those shootings were no big deal. I'm flabbergasted and appalled by what could only be explained as self-serving motives.
