Heathen Organization replies to murder investigation

The international group known as the Troth has an official statement.

This ties to two previous posts:

Prison outreach is controversial amongst some heathens and racist affilitated groups are sadly common in prisons, where extremism and the need for defensive gangs can overwhelm what we take for granted in more civilized environs.  I will also admit to having mixed feelings on the subject and would be unlikely to volunteer for such outreach even if I might be convinced to contribute money or other support in time.

I am happy that the Troth is providing a response and hope other organizations will as well.
