What a bunch of B.S. The mucky mucks getting together to discuss what a great job they did and pat each other on the back. I note no Sikh is on the panel. No meetings for the general public. Sweep the incident under the rug, let it die is my impression. Oh, they have to wait for the investigation to be completed. More hot air. Lots can and should be done now to raise community awareness.
