No barrel of shaving cream was available?

Real shame he couldn't resist the urge to spike it.

Do we hope there are tapes?  I'm unsure here.

It's a Georgian firefighter, not an Alabamian disgraced former judge.

Sounds like a plot from a Benny Hill skit.

One can only hope there was a cork popping sound effect before Benny accidentally stole the baby, ripped off the nurse's scrubs to reveal a bustiere and suspenders, leading into a Yakety Sax chase scene.

Why even bother to read the article?

Last week in Liverpool, there was a similar situation involving a footballer (Americans, that's fancy British talk for soccer player).  He came upon a burning apartment building and thought he could help out.  He spotted a lady in a high window, holding a toddler.  "Drop him down, I'll catch him!"  The lady was understandably worried. "What if you drop him?" she said.  He shook his head - "Never - I play goalkeeper for Everton".  Satisfied, she dropped her toddler down to him.  True to form, our hero caught the lad, bounced him twice, then drop-kicked him down the street.

You know, some first responders don't always seem so awesome,  but then you recall this person spends a considerable amount of time trying to prepare to be in the middle of shiate you hope you never see outside of a movie. They saved my wife. Not often enough, they remind me of the spectrum of humanity when I'm faced with the worst of people.

My son is starting his second year as a firefighter and is training to be an EMT. Obviously I'm a proud mom, but I'm also truly impressed by his bravery and willingness to help complete strangers. Unfortunately, he works in South Fulton Co., metro Atlanta, where a certain breed of scumbag likes to shoot at the big, shiny red trucks. We are looking at buying him lightweight body armor.

Glad your wife is still with you.

It takes a special type of person to do that job.  My cousin literally had the cops shoot and kill one of his patients in the back of his ambulance while they were unloading at the hospital a few months ago. I saw a lot of ugly things when I was in the military, but the stories from my cousin, his dad, and my dad, all firefighters, are worse than I want to live.  Kudos to your kid. He's doing the work God should be doing.

Really?

Generally speaking, invoking the name and assistance of your imaginary friends is not the sign of a hero.

Debilitating mental disorder, sure.

They shoot at firetrucks now? That takes a special kind of idiot. I can see shooting at police cars(also WRONG) for the good(maybe) guy/bad guy thing. Firefighters are on everyones side, kudos to your son.

The way I see it, God is made up, but that firefighter isn't.

Second kudos from me too.
