Oak Creek Patch has an exclusive interview with mayor Steve Scaffidi about the one-year anniversary of the Sikh Temple shooting. "Aug. 5 has never left my mind," he says.
Monday marks one year since Wade Michael Page killed six and wounded three at Oak Creek’s Sikh Temple of Wisconsin. Our photographer Adam Ryan Morris documented the community’s strength in the face of tragedy. “Wade Michael Page may have wounded the Sikh community, but he clearly failed to divide it,” he wrote in the photo essay.
One of those wounded was Oak Creek police Lt. Brian Murphy, who faced a long and ongoing recovery process, including an incredible surgery to save his voice. We covered that surgery and his recovery in a health column in May.
