Grieve for a murderer? How does one grieve for a murderer? Try to explain that with an ounce of compassion to their victims. Belcher committed the worst of human acts. Killing of another human being. His memory doesn't deserve grieving. Period.
You are absolutely right. That doesn't change that they all were traumatized & I'm sure reality hasn't all sunk into them yet. I like Bowe a lot but he is a nieve individual and probly doesn't get it that way. I don't blame him for not wanting to accept the truth and I don't think he wants to accept the truth, not his fault as that is too much at this point. He still has a right to grieve over losing what he thought of as a friend not to say that Belcher wasn't a murderer wich is true. That part is what is hard for him to accept I'm sure. Unless you have the same thing happen to you you can't put yourself in thier shoes to judge.
