Ok, the crazy thing about this is what the female triesd to do to the gunmen with her purse. I mean really? How stupid could she have been?

An example of having a fighting spirit without the proper knowledge to apply it.She did more than all the men sitting in their chairs waiting to die. Who then sat still while he turned and attacked her.

My mother used to carry a purse (which could have doubled for a survival pack). All ladies of that day carried one. They were actually portable weapons similar to hollow leather kettle bells weighted down with "stuff". That lady who tried to defend that sedentary school board, was just doing what her mama taught her.

What Duane said. I give the lady props for guts and stealth, less on targeting and tactics. The guys sitting there were incredibly lucky. Amazing.

I must have seen a different video. He was far from attacking her. He turned like she was crazy and she basically fell to the ground. And he looked at her, are you for real.

It was maybe not a bad idea since she has the element of surprise. But a kick to the nutz might have done better than her swining her purse at his hands.

I guess I am not seeing why it was a bright idea for her to risk her life. Over what?

Most of his shots were aimed at the floor except for the one he aimed at the Superinten­dent. The gunman was either a terrible shooter or he didn't really want to kill anyone.

Mark - That is the impression I got. Almost like he wanted to die.

Funny, now I am seeing the news glorify what this lady did. SOmething so stupid that could have gotten her killed. Like ya said, if the gunmen was hell bent on killing anyone he would have shot her.

I agree with Duanew, she had more balls than any of the cowards sitting on the board who did NOTHING after he turned his back to them when she smacked his arm! Don't think for one moment that he wasn't there to kill somebody. just because he didn't after at first doesn't mean he was going to continue to miss later. This guy had a history of stalking, maybe was just getting his nerve up by scaring them at first. Kudo's to the lady, she put her self out there, too bad she didn't get a better connect!

Upon first seeing the video, I thought that she was actually attacking him with her purse. She made a statement to a television reporter later on, tho, saying that her intent was to distract him.
