GOD Bless Jeanne Assam, who acted with calm deliberation. She saved untold lives with her actions.

Great post, Gina!


Some reporters have begun to describe this tragedy as just another sad case of ‘Christian-on-Christian’ violence. (It’s in their gun-obsessed culture, nothing we can do to stop it.) The shooter, Matthew Murray apparently was misunderstood, and violently rebelled against all that Christian brain-washing. He killed Christians because he thought they deserved it. "You Christians brought this on yourselves," Murray wrote, according to a news report. "All I want to do is kill and injure as many of you ... as I can especially Christians who are to blame for most of the problems in the world."

Mr. Murray, who wore a bullet-proof vest and helmet, was shot several times at close range by Jeanne Assam, who returned withering fire and eventually stopped him.

“... Murray was shot by volunteer security guard Jeanne Assam. Investigators said Murray may have died from a self-inflicted gunshot wound, though police and church leaders credited Assam's bravery with averting a greater tragedy. Assam, 42, said her faith allowed her to remain steady under pressure. ‘It seemed like it was me, the gunman and God,’ she said, her hands trembling as she recounted the shooting during a news conference.

Assam is a former police officer who worked in Minneapolis from 1993 to 1997, but was fired from the department for lying during an internal investigation, Minneapolis police Sgt. Jesse Garcia said Tuesday. Sgt. John Delmonico, president of the Police Officers Federation of Minneapolis, said police were investigating a complaint that Assam swore at a bus driver while she was handling an incident on a city bus.

‘In giving a statement about the incident, she was untruthful and she was fired,’ Delmonico said. Assam denied that she swore at the driver, but her actions were caught on tape, he said. The union arbitrated the case and the arbitrator upheld the termination, he said. Assam's home phone number is unlisted and she couldn't be reached for comment Tuesday.”

SO, YOU SEE? It all makes sense now, doesn’t it? Christians are murderous, and bad, and are prone to uncontrollable gun-crime. Thank goodness for atheistic socialist reporters, who tell the truth for a change.
