    I'm absolutely amazed that the first article didn't make national headlines. Sarcasm OFF.

    Thanks for posting this. Hadn't heard about it before.

    Sounds like the Dr gave Swat the inside info they needed to get the situation under control and make sure the only one that died was the one that needed to, i did just read the first article though, guess I need to read the other one to.

    Edit to add the Denver Post must be anti gun, no mention of what he did to help get people out of the building

    I live not far from Springs and I didn't even hear about it.

    And yes pretty much anything that comes out of Denver has a liberal slant.

    I can't believe I never heard of this either.
