On Monday morning, Thomas Richard Cowan loaded 13 bullets into two handguns, left his German shepherd chained to the fence and drove eight miles from his home in Kingsport to Sullivan Central High School. Whatever his mission, it was the 62-year-old Vietnam veterans final drive.
Cowan trained a .380-caliber semi-automatic pistol at Ridens face, said Sullivan County Sheriff Wayne Anderson. Carolyn Gudger, the school resource officer, drew her gun, then shielded the principals body with her own.

I am sure that some people will come on here and criticize the police and their actions. Some might even proclaim that this guy was killed needlessly and without provocation. I bet very few will praise the police for ending the situation without anyone getting hurt except for the delusional criminal.
We’ll see. I hope I am wrong.
I wonder what the gunman’s FR handle was during the Ron Paul primary campaign.
Anybody that loads up and heads for a school needs to visit his maker.
More proof that guns save lives.
I could maybe guess a few names based on this line.
LOL! I wonder how many of the cop-haters will come out of the wood-work. Paultards and cop-haters tend to be synonymous.
Oh please, don't be such a drama queen. It's unbecoming.
The LE's did their job well in this situation. That's what their paid to do. Like everyone else in the world, they only hear it when they make mistakes.
Whatever. I have plenty of strong opinions about crooked cops, but these guys obviously did the right thing. You fail at trolling.
Too bad no one told him about tin foil.
I hope someone’s taking care of the dog.
That is just plain low...
I have found that if I use a double layer of the Kroger heavy-duty aluminum foil, that it suppresses the voices. Tin foil has become hard to find lately.
Have you interacted with some of the more vocal cop-haters here?
So does bootlickers and blind GOP cheerleaders.
“The police showed amazing restraint here. Far more restraint than I would have.”
You ain’t kidding. The guy would have met the very angry, very belching business end of Mr. Mossberg 500 or Mr. Remington 870.
So we are retreating to that old standby huh? “Troll”? Why does that seem to be the refuge of those who can’t dare to have anyone else take a different opinion than they? The fact is, there are a group of individuals who rabidly hate the police, and will do anything to criticize them. They are not just here, but all over the internet. They are much more common than they were in the past, as liberals and the media have undertaken a concerted effort to smear the police in the United States. This effort was designed a long, long time ago. Conservatives typically support the police and military. Communists and liberals do not.
Well, she certainly is mighty resourceful! Someone buy this lady a drink.
They showed great forbearance toward him then, as well.
He also stalked a local newspaper deliverywoman, he refused to comply with the terms of his probation, etc.
If the police failed in any regard, it was in not throwing him in prison immediately for violating probation.
