Daniels: Sikh shooting ‘heartbreaking and ironic’

Indiana Gov. Mitch Daniels issued this statement Monday about Sunday’s shootings in Wisconsin:

“Any attack of such brutality angers and saddens us, but the murders in Milwaukee yesterday were especially heartbreaking and ironic.

“I have long known many members of Indiana’s Sikh community; I have attended services at their temple. They are among the most productive and communitarian of all our citizens and theirs is a faith of gentleness and toleration.

“I know the hearts of Hoosiers are with those directly harmed and with their Sikh brethren here among us, for whose daily practice of loyal citizenship we are deeply grateful.”
