It's a good thing that the Desert Sun is following up on this. Not asking the tough questions (where was Shirar shot, did he have a weapon, do the officers involved have a history of complaints, violence, excessive force, etc.) but following up nonetheless, which is much more than we can expect from the Press-Enterprise

Thanks to this coverage, we learn a little bit more about the man who was tragically stolen from his family and community on his wedding anniversary.
