I disagree with you on his being a hero. He isn’t a hero of the sort of our soldiers serving in harms way, but he did put himself at risk by breaking down the door to get her out. If the guy would have returned, if the door had been booby trapped... he went well above and beyond. He could have simply called police and let it go from there, but he went to her and helped her get out.
I think if anyone had heard a woman shouting from a house they have had barbecues at, know the guy for years then anyone would have gone over and helped the girl out.
The word hero has been watered down to suit every incident today by a media looking for angles to get more viewers in order to get the sheep repeating their mantra.
This is such a non story where the media will play every angle , go over the top and use it to get the sheep talking at their water coolers today while the real news is not being covered.
this story affects the country how?
Far more pressing issues at hand right now, fine they are free, he has been arrested why keep covering it, move on
