Skip to comments.Munley’s former partner says she saved his life

When Wrightsville Beach police detective Shaun Appler pulled over a suspected drunk driver in 2000, he couldnt have foreseen the dangerous situation that was about to ensue.
Thankfully Applers partner, Kimberly Munley, was there to save his life.
While Appler was talking to the driver of the vehicle, a third man approached the detective and interjected himself into the discussion. Appler said he asked the third man to leave, when he didnt, the detective tried to arrest him.
A struggle ensued, and the two men eventually rolled down a hill. When they came to a stop, the man was straddling Appler, reaching for the handgun holstered on the detectives belt.
Suddenly, Munley appeared, leaped onto the mans back, yanked him off of Appler and forced him into handcuffs.
At that point, Appler said, he heard the theme to Mighty Mouse playing over in his head: Here I come to save the day.
From that time forward, Appler called Munley: Mighty Mouse.
Now Munley, a police officer in Fort Hood, Texas, has involved herself in an incident that is shaking the nations core, when an Army psychiatrist about to be deployed overseas conducted a mass shooting in which more than a dozen people were killed and several more were severally wounded.
If it wasnt for Munley, who arrived within minutes of reports of gunfire with her partner, more people would likely have died, authorities said.
Munley was herself wounded by a bullet before she shot Maj. Nida Malik Hasan, 39, ending his rampage through a medical processing center in this army outpost on Thursday, Nov. 5, according to news reports.

Is there not a single Copy Editor working ANYWHERE on the planet?
She will never be able to buy her own beer if I’m around.
She’ll never have to pay for sex if I’m around.
Well, from what I read she had several wounds...;-D
God made man and woman. Colonel Colt made them equal.
Agreed & she shouldn’t have to.
Here here! I certainly agree.
Mighty Mouse indeed!
You go girl!
She didn’t even realize she was wounded when she took that scumbag out.
copy editors and fact checkers have gone the way of the buggy whip maker.
A good substitution for the old, “God made men equal, Colonel Colt made them unequal”
What makes you think there wasn't a Copy Editor around? It was probably checked by journalist with a degree in "communications". That's right on par with a degree in education.
Good post potlatch
Four (4) shots into the insane Muzzie traitor
And he is still alive
Somebody send Munley a nice tuned Colt .45 pistol
Women can handle them
When you absolutely need to put a creep down and out
You can never have too much gun!
What, you’d actually charge her? ;)
I have not had much time to read a lot about all of this. She is a Policewoman, right? Shouldn’t she have a certain type of gun, are there rules about that?
Do we know how far away from Hasan she was when she was shooting him? I don’t know any of that. I am impressed that she ‘hit’ him 4 times, even if it wasn’t a ‘killing’ shot.
She has the heart if not the size.
Her partner(?s) may have gotten some shots in too
A 9mm or .38 is a lame choice for a stopper
The German 9mm Luger cartridge or the Walther .380 and .32 were cute - but the NAZIS love to get their hands on a Colt 1911 .45 pistol
The Germans actually manufactured some Colt clone .45s in some Scandanavia countries during WWII
A 9mm can go right through your arm and not stop you
Kimberly Munley was shot in her leg by a 5.7mm bullet and it did not stop her
I would venture she carried a 9mm or a .38
Unlikely a .40 or a .45
At least a .357 Mag with hotloads at the minimum
Using a small caliber handgun just makes the bad guys madder
I prefer a revolver because pistols can jam
A revolver misfire - just rotate that big old cylinder and nail the creep cold
If I have time and a good scope I can put a .22lr HP in an ear or an eyeball - the slug will bounce around inside the brainpan and scamble some eggs
But for close wetwork - a dependable large caliber well-balanced revolver will come through for you -
1-2 in the upper body mass will make the donuts
Six cartridges not enough? Carry two revolvers!
She is a Policewoman, right? Shouldnt she have a certain type of gun, are there rules about that?
Do we know how far away from Hasan she was when she was shooting him?
Things I still don’t know.
