Lessons From The Metro Police Shootings

One of the eulogies for Officer Igor Soldo noted that there's a lot of evil in the world. Is that the only takeaway from the shootings of two police officer and a bystander eight days ago? Does this show us that evil can win? Or is there some larger pattern? Should this shake our religious faith? Now that the immediate shock of the news has passed, how should we understand the horrible news?  Even if there are no definite answers, we'll discuss how people are now understanding this tragedy and how they feel about it.
