    and then I will simply monitor your comments and try to drop 5 donuts a day on them until you are finally gone.

    Your second line in the disgraceful offering above reads:

    I love all the mentions of heroism. Automatically people are labeled "heroes", when all they did was being curious about the strange sounds and got popped off
    Read this motherfucker:
    Lives saved by teachers, custodian and even children in Connecticut school shooting Principal Dawn Hochsprung and school psychologist Mary Sherlach, both among those killed, were said to have run toward the gunfire as it broke out, with Hochsprung lunging at the gunman, according to town officials. Hochsprung was coming out of a meeting when she confronted the shooter, Board of Education chairwoman Debbie Liedlien said Saturday.

    Mary Ann Jacob, a school library aide, told reporters Saturday that she was with 18 fourth-graders when she heard "popping sounds" and realized shots had been fired. "I shouted 'Lockdown!' and I ran across the hall and told the other class," Jacob said. She then discovered that her classroom door would not lock. After blocking the door from the inside with a filing cabinet, Jacob and the rest of the library staff guided the children in a group-crawl to a closet in the back. "The kids cozied up, and we waited," Jacob said, adding that the children were told it was a drill. "We settled them down with paper and crayons."

    First-grade teacher Vicki Leigh Soto, 27, lost her life as she "huddled with her children," her cousin Jim Wiltsie told the Wall Street Journal. She had tried to hide them in a closet, he added, and "in doing so, she put herself between the kids and the gunman's bullets ... She was a hero for what she did."

    There's more, but I don't want to violate fair use.

    Heroes. Goddamn right.
