Jarell Brooks: Theater Shooting Hero Helped Mom While Boyfriend Jamie Rohrs Ran Out
Her fiance, jumped off the balcony and ran out of the building when the shooting started. He abandoned his two children and the woman he wants to married to save his own hide. Now, I've never been shot at, but I've had knives, bats, and chainsaws pulled on me before (not all at once), and while it is pretty scary, I wouldn't abandon my family over any of it. All people react differently, and for some, the "flight" in "fight or flight" kicks in rather than fight. But someone what would abandon his loved ones?A 19-year-old man stepped up when he saw a young mother and her children in danger the night of the Batman premier theater shooting in Aurora, Colorado. Jarell Brooks is by all accounts a hero, but he doesn't want you to think of him that way. However, he very possibly saved three lives early Friday morning, and for that, he deserves the highest praise one can get.
You'd do a lot better with someone of Mr. Brooks's mettle.
And, FWIW, Jarell Brooks, you are an honest-to-goodness American hero. God bless you, sir, and thank you.
That is all.
