    The Fort Hood Hero

    The Ft. Hood Hero: Who is Kimberly Munley? - Yahoo! News

    Sgt. Kimberly Munley, 34, a civilian Department of Defense police officer at the base, is credited with stopping the firing rampage of U.S. Army Major Nidal Hasan at the Soldier Readiness Center within a few minutes after he launched his attack.

    Munley, described by neighbor Brooke Beato, as "very petite, with long blonde hair and a strong personality," was credited by base officials with preventing further carnage by aggressively engaging Hasan as he shot at her. She rounded a corner, took aim at Hasan and brought him down, officials said. "It was an amazing and an aggressive performance by this police officer," base commander Lt. Gen. Robert Cone said. It also was a tactic straight out of recent lessons learned from the 2007 Virginia Tech shooting, when first responders waited for additional backup before engaging the shooter.

    "She walked up and engaged him," said Lt. Gen. Cone told Associated Press. As a member of the base Special Reaction Team, Munley had learned that "if you act aggressively to take out a shooter, you will have less fatalities," Cone said.
    Irony is...a fundamentalist Islamic shooter taken out by a petite blond female cop. I personally found it interesting that on a military base, this man was able to shoot 40+ people before being tackled and/or taken out.

    Most military personal are not armed at the base,weapons are locked up and a lot of times those on guard keep their weapons unloaded. Hopefully this practice changes.
    "A nation can survive its fools, and even the ambitious. But it cannot survive treason from within. An enemy at the gates is less formidable, for he is known and carries his banner openly. But the traitor moves amongst those within the gate freely, his sly whispers rustling through all the alleys, heard in the very halls of government itself. For the traitor appears not a traitor; he speaks in accents familiar to his victims, and he wears their face and their arguments, he appeals to the baseness that lies deep in the hearts of all men. He rots the soul of a nation, he works secretly and unknown in the night to undermine the pillars of the city, he infects the body politic so that it can no longer resist. A murder is less to fear"

    It makes me proud to see that there are cops in this country who won't hesitate to drop the hammer on a bad guy.

    Very impressive kill.

    Not an impressive kill.

    He isn't dead yet.

    I'm already gearing up for Finger Vote 2014.

    Just for reference, means my post was a giant steaming pile of sarcasm.

    Correction: good shooting.

    Better?

    Actually, good shooting would have been 2 to the chest, 1 to the head.

    But, good enough, still, in my book.

    I think it's far better to have the dude alive and kicking.

    He can't answer questions if he's dead, and he has some questions to answer.

    What I mean by that is that when officers shoot, they are trained to shoot to kill, not wound.

    They are trained to fire two shots to the chest and one to the head. In this kind of circumstance, training should take over, and this should be instinctive.

    The actual vital area where penetration is likely into the brain is about 4 inches wide by 2.5 inches tall.
    So, you shoot for the torso with the double tap hoping to hit the heart, lungs, or spine, and if that fails, or they are dying but still fighting, engage with a round to the head for an instant incapacitation. She shot her first round into the torso, but it didn't hit the chest. Of course, she was shot 3 times, so that's understandable.

    Ah, so you were speaking technically, not practically, yes?

    It was actually dark humor.
