I just saw this and wanted to share. It seems back in 2010 a School Resource Officer (cop), confronted an active shooter and did everything right.
To be an active shooter, you have to be firing shots. You didn't hear about an active shooter being stopped because it wasn't an active shooter. It was a gunman. It would have have been a nasty situation, no doubt, but it wasn't an active shooter situation, yet. The SRO did well.
It didn't make big news, but it certainly did make the news...
You don't hear about a lot of good events. Such events really don't hold people's interest very well, including our own.
