How did a fun-loving, gun-hating, sports-crazy Buddhist wind up shot by police?

Bijan C. Ghaisar had a passion for football, for liberal politics, for chicken wings and chocolate. He had embraced Buddhism in the last year of his life, and the only conflict in his world came in his strident Facebook discussions. He was 25 years old, two years out of college and working as an accountant while searching for his career path, living a comfortable life surrounded by family and friends in his home town of McLean, Virginia.
