One Gunman + One Math Teacher = A Hero

That’s a math problem no one wants to see needed, but without a hero like David Benke, it could have been so much worse.

Good job, David.  Many people owe their lives to your bravery and quick action.

Littleton, Colo. (AP) – The gunman was walking through a middle school parking lot and taking shots at students with a hunting rifle as terrified teenagers ran for their lives. He had just wounded two students and seemed ready to unleash more violence when a math teacher named David Benke sprung into action.
Benke confronted the 32-year-old gunman, tackled him and pinned him to the ground with the help of another teacher, stopping what could have been a much more violent encounter in a city all too familiar with tragic school shootings. The shooting occurred less than three miles from where the Columbine High School massacre happened nearly 11 years ago.
