  •  the guys' deaths are a tragedy (16+ / 0-)

    They are heroes if they saved the lives of others. End of story.

    Taranto should be fired.

    the future begins

    •  It's humbling and moving to see how often (0+ / 0-)

      this happens.  There were several men who shielded their partners, men and women who shielded children.  When a shooter opened fire in that UU church in Tennessee, the same thing -- people who shielded others, people who risked their lives to tackle the shooter while he reloaded.

      It's humbling to know that when you sit down in a theater full of ordinary people talking and laughing and looking for a little entertainment, there are some present who are capable of such courage at a moment's notice.
