I wondered IF I was the only one that interpreted the librarians actions that way. Local media is saying that is what "confused" the gunman and is responsible for the low body count.
I don't blame the man for running away - Col. Cooper is credited for saying, "Armed men kill unarmed ones with monotonous regularity." But are we going to hang a medal on him ?
Personally, I think it would have been easier to face the gunman than to live w the knowledge that he left an innocent girl to face the wrath of a pissed off teenager. The Kid went there to kill him after all and no one seems to want to know why?
Did the "resource officer" face the teenager down or did the kid just decide to end his life after shooting the girl ? He was armed for a fight but decided not after shooting an innocent victim. Killer w a conscience ? Or just a coward ? More questions than answers and media is giving it's usual spin.
