The Colorado shooter appeared in court for the first time today, facing charges that could lead to the death penalty.

Media outlets covered it live and televised. Twitter users watched the events unfold.

Katie Couric points out how hard seeing the killer must be on the families, devastated with grief.

Other Twitter users agree.

Yes. While we must sometimes look at the face of evil in order to confront it, let us remember the victims and their loved ones instead. Let us honor those who sacrificed their own lives in order to protect and save the women they loved. Let us pray for those devastated by the loss of their children, their mothers, their fathers, their sisters, their brothers and their friends.

Look upon the face of evil, but don’t glorify it.

Honor and commemorate his victims.
