I disagree. I think we should celebrate this guy as well as the wounded Muslim policeman who was executed while lying on the sidewalk in the classic "hand up, don't shoot" pose.

And by we I mean everyone including Muslims.

Where are the Muslims marches and protest around the world? Absent as usual. Contrast that with street celebrations after 9-11 in the Muslim world. Tells the real tale.
