The Muthaship: Fark can't comment.He's a cop, and white. The gears are all smoking.
GoodyearPimp: I got shot in my "Sikh temple" once. If you know what I mean.
BarkingUnicorn: If he really wanted to prove he's not a hero, he'd write a book and pimp it on Oprah.Humility is a hallmark of heroism.
Inchoate: Guy's a hero.
Lexx: My GOD, 15 hits, 12 into flesh, and he survived? What was the shooter packing, a .22?
The Muthaship: Damn right he is. But, most of Fark will be loathe to admit it. I won't be surprised if we have some people come in and speak ill of him in one way or another.
thecpt: Dad's a white honest cop (stories from friends and strangers of "fairer than actual law" treatment) so I usually can't frequent these threads. I'm just so shocked that he was issued a revolver and endured this fight. Almost no capability of reloading in that frantic of an environment.
drxym: God sure has a funny way of "divine intervention" - about 6 victims too late.
Githerax: He should Sikh medical attention.
OnlyM3: Also missing are the snide why didn't jebus block dem bullets.
s1ugg0: He must have known the score and did what he did anyway. The man is a real hero.
s1ugg0: Seriously though, this man is a true hero. The more you read about this story more amazing it is. He literally absorbed bullets with his body so the gunman didn't hurt other people.
AbiNormal: Surprised he didn't just crush the shooter with his giant brass balls.
s1ugg0: Nah, he's Irish.

He literally absorbed bullets with his body so the gunman didn't hurt other people.[imageshack.us image 593x247]It was not literal in the "absorbing" sense, as the bullets were actually forced into his body by the gun. It was also not "literal" in the "so the gunman didn't hurt other people" sense, as at this point the cop had no clue that his actions were saving lives.He's still a hero though.
Day_Old_Dutchie: He's on leave from the force now, undergoing physical therapy and additional surgeries,Officer Murphy to be re-born as ROBO COP!!!
Prince Of Farkness: Farkers, I am disappoint. Not one reference to Robocop yet. That said, I can't imagine being shot that many times. Holy shiat./
