There is more material from the local papers in Colorado but the big hype above was all I heard this week.
Bottom line: Jeanne Assam, a law abiding citizen with a right to carry a fire arm, stopped a killing spree. Even if the creep fired his own fatal shot, he clearly had not planned to stop that soon. Miss (or Ms?) Assam is a hero and she did the right thing. But I wonder:
- Why was the hero's past significant?
- Why was the past of the founder of the church significant?
- Why was the educational past of the killer significant? I don't think I have ever seen a report that said, "And the suspect was educated in a public school."
