He told TV cameras that when Ethan began crying, his first thought was that the gunman would come and get him, so he put his child on the floor and left the three people he loves the most to be saved by a total and complete stranger.

He told them that he put the child on the floor so they could be saved by a total stranger. Incredible. God I love the writing and editing on this piece(sarcasm).

Pleases me to see a young, black man.. acting with bravery and selflessness.

Young, brave, and selfless black men make up a significant minority of our miitary.

The Coward asked her to marry him because some deep circuit in his brain is flashing to him that in order to get a girl after this he will necessarily have to be someone else.

She accepted because she is not yet listening to the same circuit in her brain.

This is what a real selfless hero looks like. God bless you Mr. Brooks.

Costanza claimed he was clearing a path that the others could follow.

Patriots save America so she can hitch her wagon to liberal cowardice.

Not to be a Danny Downer here but this story is sad all the way around.

1. Who in their right mind takes a small child, little lone an infant, to a midnight showing of ANY movie? That’s what babysitters are for.

2. The father in this situation is only a sperm donor, a real father would not have left his kids behind like that. Bravado aside, I would have done everything to ensure I or my child (and wife) out of harm’s way. If that meant I didn’t make it, I could make peace with that.

3. The girl better wake up and dump the father, maybe look at the hero for emotional support. The father of those two kids have already demonstrated when the going got tough, he’d leave his kids to fend for themselves. Does she think he wouldn’t do the same again?

Why would this young man even consider marrying a broad as stupid as she is? Sure, he saved her and her children, but that doesn’t mean he should be punished by marrying the stupid twit. Leave her with the loser. She obviously doesn’t have the sense to place any higher value on herself.

his first thought was that the gunman would come and get him,

His first thought was for his own safety. Unbelievable.

At 19, the one on the right is a MAN. The other guy, picture further down the thread, is just a weenie.

I’m sure she has been with him long enough to know what kind of prize she’s getting.

Brooks was a hero, so it’s unlikely Obama could relate to him.

When is the Pre’sent going to announce, “If I had a son, he’d look like Jerrel Brooks”? Now that would be somebody to be proud of. (Brooks, I mean.)
