Fort Hood Hero

Nicole and Tony look at the online profile of the Ft. Hood Hero, Sgt. Kim Munley:

Since the report aired, we found out that she is a newly married mother of a 3-year-old daughter.  Her brother-in-law told us, "She is definitely a tough woman.  There's nothing that stands in her way.  It completely makes sense that she she what she did.  It was amazing.  Without her, there would have been a lot more people killed."

    The Sgt. is a Texan thats just the way Texans are but this Texan is special and Gov. Perry needs to give her an acomodation and a pay raise.

    It's commendable that someone stepped up to the plate to risk their life to save the lives of others. However, for the alleged gunman, the blame for all of his shooting rage can't be pinned on racism and religion. There are those of us in Black America that live this on a daily basis and haven't gone on shooting sprees. We persevere, we strive to improve our lives, generation after generation and still meet the same bias, ridicule, isolation and degradation that the shooter's relative believes was an excuse for what Maj. Nidal Malik Hasan did. Using bias and racism as an excuse for committing crimes against humanity and society desensitizes people who are on the fence or unsure about what's really going on and to the depth of the social stigma called racism.

    Munley is certainly a brave officer... but why has nothing been said about her partner on that day? Based on Anderson Cooper's interview with him yesterday, he exchanged gunfire with Hasan and might have even been the one to put him down. But no one has followed up on that. Are we too caught up in another "hero" story to want to pursue the facts?

    By the way, if I am on the wrong blog, I DO WANT TO EXPRESS MY EXTREMEM REMORESE FOR THE DEATHS AT FORT HOOD. I HAVE HAD MANY RELATIVE GO THROUGH THERE FROM VIET NAM TO AFGHANISTAN. IT SICKENS ME, BUT I really have no idea to blame [other than the obvious shooter]. I CANNOT begin to imagine what could even give a person the screwed up motive to do something like that. BUT, I was not there that day, and all I can hopefully actually rely on is the report of those who were, and who study it.

    we all thank this hero & are rightly proud of her, wishing her speedy recovery.
    Mass murder has no religion,cast or creed. Humanity cries " Let the world be a peaceful
    place for our children & grand children"
