I saw the flag at half-staff last week and thought maybe someone famous had died, but someone else guessed it was for the shootings at the Sikh temple - they were correct. The flag also was lowered when The Joker shot up the theater in Colorado.
So is the test number of victims, location, or whether a particular class of individuals gets shot?
Atlanta has multi-death "home invasion" shootings (aka drug deals gone bad) all the time and the flag never gets lowered.
