Munley’s former partner says she saved his life
Lumina News ^ | 11/6/2009 | Brian Freskos

Posted on 11/06/2009 1:29:00 PM PST by Saije

When Wrightsville Beach police detective Shaun Appler pulled over a suspected drunk driver in 2000, he couldn’t have foreseen the dangerous situation that was about to ensue.

Thankfully Appler’s 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 didn’t, 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 detective’s belt.

Suddenly, Munley appeared, leaped onto the man’s 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 nation’s 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 wasn’t 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.

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!

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.

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!

Police used to carry a .32 or .38 revolver

They did not stop the target

Some states and cities even banned the S&W .357 Magnum for LEOs - It “killed”

I have also seen a young cop carry a nice SIG .40 - and a .357 Mag as a backup

I asked him (after he insisted I examine his SIG) why he chose to carry two (2) calibers of handguns - requiring two (2) calibers of cartridges

When you strap on your iron you are not going to a gun show or shoot a B western flick

You need practical, dependable large caliber stoppers

And lots of regular practice

Otherwise just go sell shoes in the mall

There are many PDs that allow .45’s

They are heavier and bulkier - but there are some now made with composites &/or titanium

Law Enforcement or the military is not the career for a showboat or someone wanting to be a hero

Or to hide in a Shrink’s starched and pressed uniform or whites stateside

I used semi-autos and full-autos in the military

I prefer revolvers for my own use - but a scoped semi-auto carbine for hunting or trespassers/thieves
At the rate the US is going - they may soon get up close and personal lessons about the real reason for the 2nd Ammendment

That includes any lefties/thugs in the SS or elsewhere

I jump to conclusions!

So it sounds like Police have a variety of choices in guns to carry. Guess I assumed that they all carried certain ones that are issued to them.

I never asked my brother about ‘gun’ things. I read enough mysteries to know they carry ‘backup’ guns too.

The dinky handgun has gone for LEO’s now

The biggest problem is cities where the range time and ammo budget is restricted

Like driving - carrying and using a firearm requires dedication and practice

Any LEO that imagines they may go through a career with using a firearm should select another path in life

The same for the over-eager hotdogs too

I remember in the military I did not want any urban city types anywhere around me

Only those that learned to hunt in mixed environments and situations at a very young age

Well, he’s in a coma on a ventilator. I’d say Kimberley did pretty well. OTOH, they’ll say he can’t testify at his trial. I want a trial as speedy as Tim McVeigh’s with as speedy and permanent an outcome.

She hit him 4 times, I’d say she did really well.

Dr. Death hit her in both legs and her wrists

She hit him 4 times and he is in a coma

Gun Control means hitting your target

To bad she was not using a Colt .45

He would be sleeping with the pigs now

Is it true they often use modified hog blood for transfusions?

I wonder if they had to use a pig`s heart valve to patch him up.....

Note they transported him to another undisclse location

He was a lousy shot

No main upper body shots

It appears he shot everywhere and used a number of pre-loaded magazines

40 hits - one officer estimates a total of 100 rounds fired

I would say he attempted to keep a distance from the victims

One officer said they were sitting in cubicles - he jumped up on a table to shoot downwards at their head levels
