A Hero In Garland

posted on May 7, 2015

As more details emerge about the terrorist incident in Garland, Texas, in which two allegedly ISIS-affiliated gunmen were killed, it has become clear that one man killed both of the assailants. This hero, whose name was not released, is described as a traffic officer who was armed only with a .45-caliber Glock handgun. His bravery and impeccable performance against two men with superior firearms and body armor are responsible for saving countless lives. A1F Daily sends kudos to Garland PD and that unnamed officer!
