In the early mornings, this LEO stepped into the breach to make sure this madman with the sword didn't harm or kill any of the kids attending college there. As a result, he may have permanently lost a finger. But he stayed in the fight, as one would expect from any LEO.
Prayers for his recovery.
Although many good citizens in your community may own and carry guns, keeping the community safe still fall on those who carry badges.
In a gunfight, even if you do everything right, you can still get killed.
