I too think your reaction was not outrageous. There is a time for everything, and mourning for a person's death albeit a stranger is in my mind nothing strange. There is no shame in this. Don't let the others get you down or make you feel alienated for this. I read this, I felt sympathy and the needless loss of this human being's life. I did not cry, but the emotion was there. Not everyone experiences emotions in the same way. But it was definitely heartless and tasteless of those people to make such horrible comments and to disrespect him so much by making a spectacle of his death.
