'Tough woman' cop hailed Fort Hood hero
CNN ^

Posted on 11/06/2009 12:12:56 PM PST by Retired Greyhound

Fort Hood, Texas (CNN) -- The police officer who ended the Fort Hood massacre by shooting the suspect was known as the enforcer on her street, a "tough woman" who patrolled her neighborhood and once stopped burglars at her house. "If you come in, I'm going to shoot," Kimberly Munley told the would-be intruders last year. It was Munley who arrived quickly Thursday at the scene of the worst massacre at an Army base in U.S. history, where 13 people were killed. She confronted the alleged gunman, Maj. Nidal Malik Hasan, and shot him four times. Munley was wounded in the exchange. That's just like her, friends and family say. "I just felt more protected knowing she was on my street," neighbor Erin Houston said.

Sad that they had to wait for her because the Pentagon has made military bases "gun-free" zones.

It sure is, but it’s nice to see the jihadist get pwned by a girl.

Indeed.

Every military installation is a "gun free" zone, which made the body count that much higher.

If Soldiers have a CCP granted from the state of Texas or reciprocating state, then Soldiers stationed at Fort Hood should have had the right to conceal-carry a loaded pistol while on post.

Thank goodness the officer shot the terrorist in time, but it's a shame that it all came down to her, and her alone.

Heaven knows she could have used some back-up from other armed Soldiers.

An off-duty policeman used his conceal-carry authority and a pistol to shoot the murderous mohammed at the Salt-Lake City Mall in February 2007.

I really do wonder if Raila Odinga’s favorite cousin is going to give her a medal for this.

These soldiers would have been safer in Iraq or Afghanistan because they would have been able to fire back.

There is something very troubling about that.

Exactly.

The Soldiers were in danger the instant they walked into the gun-free zone that is known as Fort Hood.

They have absolutely no way of defending themselves in a situation like this, and are solely reliant on the police for their defense.

But as the old saying goes, "When seconds count, the police are only minutes away."

Why is a Soldier with a Texas-issued CCP systematically denied the right to defend himself at Fort Hood?

“I really do wonder if Raila Odinga’s favorite cousin is going to give her a medal for this.”

I hope not, because she should get it from someone like General David Petraeus (General Betray Us to Barry’s friends at MoveOn.org like Eli Parasite, I mean Eli Pariser). If she got a medal from Barry, it would be like finding it in a box of Cracker Jack. Barry does not even know the difference between the Medal of Honor and the Medal of Freedom, and he thinks people “win” the Medal of Honor.

Actually, as a civilian police officer, she will probably get a decoration from her police department as opposed to the military.

He's an even 6', not a small guy, but she probably stands a foot shorter. That's what I love about firearms - they make a little thing like her more than the equal of some psycho thug bent on murder.

“Why is a Soldier with a Texas-issued CCP systematically denied the right to defend himself at Fort Hood? “

It’s quite likely because soldiers are not allowed to carry concealed weapons; the Geneva Convention requires that all arms be carried openly. Also, ammunition suitable for personal defense or law enforcement (with hollow point bullets) is illegal.

So the real question should be why soldiers are not allowed to carry openly, with Geneva Convention ammunition. .45 ACP ball has as much stopping power as any hollowpoint.

The Geneva Convention has feminized our Soldiers and completely removed common sense.

The body count at Fort Hood would have been lower if Texas CCP carrying Soldiers were allowed to do what was necessary to MAJ Mohammed.

But because the Soldiers are ruled by nonsense, it made Mohammed's destruction that much greater.

I saw an interview with a Soldier on FOX earlier today. He claimed he was armed with a gun and clip in his boot. He was down the hall from the shootings. He could hear the shots and heard all the screaming. He said he wasn’t hiding, but stayed put.
