Capitol police heroes saved the day, preventing congressional massacre

Capitol Police officers Crystal Griner and David Bailey are the heroes who kept the shooting on Wednesday from being the “massacre” Congress members say it could have been. Both of the officers are on Rep. Steve Scalise’s security detail and put their lives on the line to respond when shots rang out at a congressional baseball practice. Scalise was standing near second base and was shot by James Hodgkinson before both Griner and Bailey rushed into action, taking down the shooter despite both being injured. Both have since been taken to the hospital and are recovering from their injuries. “Had they not been there, it would have been a massacre,” Senator Rand Paul said to MSNBC. Majority Leader Eric Cantor praised both agents, who had served on his protection detail before. “[Griner’s] an incredibly able and professional individual who always takes her job and responsibility seriously,” Cantor told The Daily Beast. “It is not surprising to hear of her heroism and bravery during this horrible attack.” “The bravery David showed reflects the kind of commitment he, Crystal, and the team demonstrated each and every day,” Cantor continued. “Incidents like the attack today are never something many of us even imagine happening. David is a trained professional who was and remains ready to act whatever the threat. Wishing him a full recovery.” After being shot, Griner and her wife, Tiffany, were given a bouquet of white flowers by President Donald Trump and his wife, Melania, as she recovered in the hospital. Both agents’ injuries have been described as non-life-threatening. Scalise remains in critical condition at the hospital. Two others were also shot: Zach Barth, a congressional staffer, and Matt Mika, a lobbyist. Barth’s injuries are not considered to be life-threatening, but Mika’s are considered to be serious.

Poorly Timed ...

There was a story on The Blaze about Kelli Ward’s “poorly timed” email. Yes. Poorly timed indeed.

And yet Jeff Flake is not necessarily the best person for the Senate if you stand for Conservative Values. 85 more words

An Open Letter to Senator Jeff Flake regarding the shooting in Washington D.C. the morning of June 14, 2017

I sent the following to one of my Senators who was apparently at the baseball field that was shot up this morning. I’m frankly horrified that anyone would shoot at any government official, but I can’t say that I didn’t see this coming. 958 more words
