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.
Grieving isn't just about the people who died. It's about the loss experienced by the people who live. If my dad shot someone in a fit of rage and then shot himself, it would make him a murderer, but I would still grieve the loss off my father.
Up until that point, I would have had a good man as a father in my life. Afterwards, that would be missing. I would feel a profound sense of loss even though he would have done something horrible.
