Florida School Board Shooting Edition
No, we’re not talking about the Purse Lady. She’s an embarrassment. Her actions were both profoundly irresponsible and ineffective. She starts out good, hitting Clay Duke’s gun arm with her purse, but when it doesn’t work she immediately starts crying and falls to the ground in a pathetic heap. Sad, really.
The REAL HERO here is the guy at about 4:50 in the video (below). Superintendent Bill Husfelt is attempting to calmly talk down Duke and protect his fellow board members by taking responsibility for the firing of Duke’s wife. “They don’t sign the papers; I’m the only one who signs them,” he says. Husfelt’s actions are selfless, true, but he’s not the hero either. The TRUE HERO in this ordeal is the man who, after Husfelt delivers that line, quietly says, “That’s right.”
You can barely hear him, he’s so brave. And for that quiet act of awesome, he is our BEAST HERO of the WEAK!
