Quebec City funeral: Sympathy for the suspect, hope for the future

“There is one victim none of us want to talk about, Imam Hussein Guillet told the several thousand people gathered at Quebec City’s convention centre for Friday’s funeral for three of the six killed in Sunday’s mosque shooting spree. This victim, his name is (alleged shooter) Alexandre Bissonnette,” Guillet said. “Somebody planted ideas (in his head) more dangerous than bullets. This little kid didn’t wake up in the morning and say: Today, instead of going to a picnic or watching the Canadiens, I will go and kill some people in the mosque. It doesn’t happen that way.”
