Rantings from a few corporate types about life, technology, travel, guns, politics, and everything good in the world.

More Thoughts on Tech....

Tuesday, April 17, 2007

It's good to see some "Lets roll!" type heroism from this debacle:

1> Professor Liviu Librescu, a Romanian born Jewish holocaust survivor blocked a doorway with his body while his students fled through the windows. He was murdered on Holocaust Memorial Day.

2> Derek O'Dell blocked another door to try to get the shooter to go to other targets. He was wounded and will survive.

Also, before the GFW's get rolling, remember ALS:
On January 16, 2002, the Dean, Anthony Sutin, Professor Thomas Blackwell, and student Angela Dales were shot and killed by disgruntled student Peter Odighizuwa, 43, of Nigeria. Three other students were shot but survived. The abrupt ending to Odighizuwa's shooting spree is attributed to two students with personal firearms who quickly took action.[1] At the first sound of gunfire, fellow students Tracy Bridges and Mikael Gross, unbeknownst to the other, ran to their vehicles to grab their personal firearms.[2] Bridges and Gross then worked with another student, Ted Besen. The three students approached Odighizuwa from different angles. Bridges raised his revolver and pointed it at Odighizuwa who then dropped his firearm and was first subdued by Besen followed by other students.[3] Once Odighizuwa was securely held down Gross went back to his vehicle and retrieved handcuffs to help hold Odighizuwa until police could arrive. Police reports noted there were two empty eight round magazines belonging to Odighizuwa’s .380 semi-automatic handgun. It is unclear whether Odighizuwa ran out of ammunition or if there was still a round in the chamber at the time that he dropped his firearm.
According to new reports the gunman kept his guns in his dorm-room contrary to the law. Color me surprised.
