US Congresswoman Shot in the Head

Postby TaraBenwell » Mon Jan 10, 2011 9:29 pm

dateline: 10 January 2011 ~ US Congresswoman Shot in the Head

See the above for audio story, text and words.

Discussion question: Many people on the scene jumped on the gunman who was shooting at close range. A middle-aged woman tried to stop him from reloading his gun. How do you think you would react in a situation like this?

Hello Tara Benwell, nice to see you here!

I heard about this story, the woman became a hero in the US. As to how I would react, I could tell you I would do the same, but it sounds unconvincing.
Generally speaking, I think people should be vigilant (hawk-eyed) sometimes and less indifferent.

Some say that the woman was not the ral target. Most people don't know that a federal judge was KILLED in this affair. This judge had ruled against the lying president, Obama!
