Forget the zero Chris, Remember the HERO Chris - UCC Shooting
With all the stories here on GLP about the shooter, lets take time to think about the people who tried to help stop him. This article poignantly asserts that we give too much credit to shooters. We give them power when we allow them their 5 minutes of "fame" or being in the "limelight". We need to stop talking about the shooter and start talking about the hero who potentially saved other people with his quick thinking and disregard for his own safety. Would you act so courageously if in this situation?

Here is a snipet, see link for full article which is worth the read....


"Forget the 26-year-old zero who murdered 10 innocents at Umpqua Community College on Thursday morning.

The one to remember is 30-year-old Chris Mintz, the student and Army vet who was shot at least five times while charging straight at the gunman in an effort to save others.

Mintz did so on the sixth birthday of his son, Tyrik."

"Do not give this coward what he wants!

Let us demand that this disgusting monstrosity live out his absolute worst fear: To die in anonymity.

Do not show us his face, do not tell us his name, do not read whatever psychotic manifesto he has written.

Let us demand that we will focus on the lives lost, those who were cut short of their time on this Earth. Let us demand that they be celebrated, and that he be ignored.

Let us send a clear message to anyone else who might consider mass murder as a means of escaping the dreary life they have encapsulated themselves in, who have twisted dreams of glory and infamy to be gleaned in the blood of another.

No one will remember you!

Let these others who may be contemplating such disgusting acts looks at the news in horror as their would-be hero is discarded to the annals of forgotten history, and tell them, in no uncertain terms, that their fate will be the same if they choose this course of action.

I am not calling for a silencing of the First Amendment, I am not calling for government action to such an end. I am calling for we the people, and for the media at large, to stand together, upon our own free will, to destroy their delusions of ill-gotten grandeur… With silence.

Flood the media outlets with letters, with calls, with e-mails and with protests, and let us demand that we strip this sadist of his last wish, his fame. And in so doing, maybe we can stop the tide of violence that has been surged up by the desperate, murderous sycophants of our world."

If the media quit making these shooting national news, and just reported locally on it, the number of these mass shootings would diminish greatly.

I totally agree! The media glorifies it by giving them a sense of accomplishment and fame. It's sick.
