I think it is possible to be both outraged by the tragic death of Rebekah Gall and to have some sympathy for this former Pleasanton police officer whose life turned from doing good for many years to doing a very bad thing. And I very much doubt that his friends who "showed support" for officer Young believed that he should escape the consequences of his actions.
