Remembeing Robert Payne

This wasn't supposed to happen to Robert Payne.

After a week in which the nation has been consumed by the killings of black citizens by police officers and the execution of five police officers in Dallas by a lone sniper, today staff writer Rose Quinn profiles something we've done far too many times. Quinn expertly details the agonizing loss suffered by the family and friends of Robert Payne.

He was described as the 'gentleman teacher' by those who loved him.

Police say why Payne was targeted remains a mystery.
