Last Thursday, another loon (like Elliot Rodger) opened fire with a shotgun on students at Seattle Pacific University, killing one and wounding three others.
It could have been a veritable bloodbath as the culprit, Aaron Ybarra, intended, according to law enforcement, to “unleash hell” on the campus; but a quick thinking, non-wussified young man rose to the occasion and peppered sprayed this SOB when he was reloading and brought him down to Chinatown.
I’ve got two words for that brave move by that fine young squire: Ya and Hoo.
Check it out Daily Mail:
A 26-year-old gunman has opened fire at a small, Christian university in Seattle – killing one student and wounding three more with shotgun blasts.
And police say he could have killed others if it wasn’t for the actions of one heroic student who pepper sprayed the gunman and tackled him to the ground.
Students at Seattle Pacific University say Jon Meis saved countless lives when he sprang into action as the shooter stopped to reload his weapon Thursday afternoon.
Meis, a 26-year-old engineering student, is engaged to be married and has ‘everything to live for’ friends said. But he risked his life and ended the murderous rampage.
‘I’m proud of the selfless actions that my roommate, Jon Meis, showed today taking down the shooter. He is a hero,’ tweeted Matt Garcia.
Classmate Briana Clarke told the Seattle Times that Meis, who was on duty as a hall monitor, sprayed the attacker in the face, grabbed him around the neck and then wrestled him to the ground.
Yep, instead of rolling up in the fetal position and wetting his big victim diaper, Jon Meis did what normal young men used to do, namely, kick the bad guy’s butt by any means possible. Someone buy that man a beer.
Now, for all the criticism of “alpha males” and how men nowadays need to be more like Michael Jackson and less like Leonidas, I bet the kids and faculty at SPU, and their respective relatives, are sure as shizzle glad this Meis hombre tapped his primal, protective impulses when the crap was hitting the fan and saved the day.
Gentlemen, should you ever find yourself in a sticky situation in close proximity to an active shooter, as Mr. Meis did, put this in the back of your noggin; it might save a few lives:
