Just when my faith in humanity was diminished

you get this:

Teacher Victoria Soto used her body to shield her students from the maniacal gunman who staged a massacre at a Connecticut school, relatives said Saturday.

Soto paid for her bravery with her life. But in doing so, the 27-year-old saved her first-graders from the murderous wrath of Adam Lanza — and became a hero.

Not all heroes jump from planes, hit the beach or rush into burning buildings…

    I just wish this heroine was alive and describing how she dropped this fecal-matter-that-walks-like-a-man in his tracks with a headshot.

    The principal was also reportedly a hero. She died charging that little shit who I will not name. God bless these ladies and the little ones.

    Where is that story? Everything I’ve seen said she, the vice principal, and the school shrink came out of a meeting with a parent when they heard noises, and they got cut down almost immediately. Of course, given the level of accuracy of reporting so far, all of the details seem pretty fluid.

    Not surprising that the adults went down trying, though. VT had at least one teacher who died trying to save students, too, if I remember correctly.

    His name was Liviu Librescu and he was also a Holocaust survivor.

    Yeah I know it’s the Daily Beast, and like you said, the MSM fucked up so many of the initial details of the story that it’s kind of hard to know what’s true. But it seems to be confirmed by other outlets, so it may have a decent chance of being true.

    First, this blog needs a like button. These are some of the best posts I have seen since I started as merely a lurker.

    For all that we bitch as to the state of education today, the individuals mentioned in these posts exemplify what the very best teachers are made of. And I agree that it is a shame that none of them could possess the means to drop the piece of filth in its tracks.

    Indeed, honor to the teachers who did what little they could to protect their students. Would that they had the resources Israeli schools have. In addition to armed teachers, I seem to recall that they bring in volunteer parents who also provide armed guarding (a service I’ve always secretly provided for my kids’ schools and sports events–gun free zone?–doesn’t apply to me). So in an environment of constant terrorist threats, Israel has had, I think, none, 0, nada school shootings, whether internal or from external enemies. How much simpler does the solution need to be. Clearly, draconian statist gun control and “gun free zones” haven’t worked.

    The tales of Victoria Soto and the Principal are the singular bright spots in this carnival of horror.

    They died well, and are already getting their reward.

    As for the pond-scum-that-walked-like-a-man. . . I’m sure he’s feeling the love too. Every single demon in Hell is lined up for a turn with him. With the **special** lube mix comprised of ground glass and suicide hot sauce. . .

    I doubt they have the balls to actually do it. They’re the lowest scum of the planet, but they’re not completely stupid (even though they are inbred multiple times). If there’s any incident that could prompt people to smear these pukes into a red streak on the pavement, it’s this one. So I hope they show up. Then we can protest some of their funerals with “Thank God for dead Phelps Phaggots”.

    I know that others here feel the same way I do. If I could go, I would. I know that I would end up in jail or worse for beating one or more of the fucks to death.

    I do have the feeling that those Phelps Phaggots would be introduced to the reaction that would reduce their numbers greatly. :em03:

    Being turned over to the women was always the worst possible fate for a captive.

    Westboro Baptist has been described as “a pit of lawyers.” (Apologies to genuine pits of lawyers.)

    LC SecondMouse growls and barks:

    According to several reports, the school’s principal, Dawn Hochsprung, was shot down while trying to tackle the child-killing coward. I wonder how different the story might be if she and/or Victoria Soto had been armed, or had access to a firearm in the school, and had been trained in its use. It is hard to imagine a more fierce and determined adversary for a killer like that than a woman in charge of hundreds of children.

    I’m a dedicated Christian, and I’d be right there with you! These pukes not only twist Scripture to defend lunacy and give Christianity a bad name, they are a general blight on humanity and traitors to God and Country!

    You do realize, of course, that for that reason, we’re ALL marked men and women, when the Progs finally start their push. . .

    But heck, it’s a badge of honor. . . .

    When the Phelps bunch decided to protest teh funeral of one of the local boys here, a Marine who died with Honor, they made it all the way to town. The police were very nice and told them where they could stand to “protest”. They arrived the day before and saw some of the local boys who told them that we are surrounded by hundreds of thousands of acres of forest, swamp and gators in SC. They strangely decided to slink out of town before dawn and have not been seen in southern SC since…. wonder why? Oh, the police didn’t see “anything”. Please come back, we didn’t finish our conversation …….. Phepls, hey, come back.

    I have a strange feeling that we’ve all been “marked” for quite some time.

    Meh. Let ‘em come. Just makes it easier to figure out who the targets are.
