Fort Hood, Texas (CNN) -- A civilian police officer who shot the Fort Hood gunman four times during his bloody rampage stopped the attacker cold, a U.S. Army official said Friday.
Officer Kimberly Munley of the Fort Hood Police Department is a "trained, active first responder" who acted quickly after she "just happened to encounter the gunman," said Lt. Gen. Robert Cone, Fort Hood's commanding general.

Military justice. Hadn’t thought of that. Makes justice seem more possible.
What I am saying is that this is going to be the public perception.
It’s NOT my personal thoughts. I am saying this is how it is going to be seen.
In what way? Those men were mostly unarmed. I don't know about you, but even with all the military training they get, I seriously doubt they'd want to be walking into a gunfight armed with nothing more than their fists.
The article also mentioned that she "happened to encounter the gunman." Had one of the male responders, be he civilian or military, been in the same position, it is likely the perp would have been immobilized as well.
That being said - good shootin' Officer Munley, and here's hoping you have a quick recovery.
I'm sure we'll learn more, but a report I heard this morning said one of the terrorist murderer's frustrations was that he'd been unable to find a properly deferential, traditional Muslim wife.
Do you think that the fact that she was allowed to possess a firearm on-base and they weren't might have had something to do with it?
Yeah, they do, and a lot of them are in Iraq and Afghanistan currently.
So the base augments the MPs that are still in country with civilian police.
Our nation is deeply grateful for your actions, Kimberly. You are indeed a hero.
Okay okay it was a stupid remark.
By idiots, maybe.
MPs deploy. Civilian base police do not.
With the current war tempo, MPs are often deployed with the units they support. Many DOD facilities and bases have moved to a civilian police force for consistency throughout deployments.
After re-considering it, if a soldier had shot him,m.p. or not, Holder would probably prosecute him/her under the Fereral Hate Crimes Act.
Unless the cancer of liberalism and political correctioness is surgically removed form the United States of America, America will cease to exist as America.

Texan police officer Kim Munley who shot Fort Hood gunman hailed as a heroine
“Sergeant Munley managed to hit Major Hasan four times but was herself hit by a bullet that passed through both her legs, according to witnesses.
Sergeant Munley had been the first armed person on the scene and had immediately taken him on.
She is likely to return home to a hero’s welcome, although her Twitter page which features a picture of her with the country music star Dierks Bentley at the Fort Hood “Freedom Fest” on July 4 suggests she is not the type to have her head turned.
Her Twitter biography reads: “I live a good life ... a hard one, but I go to sleep peacefully @ night knowing that I may have made a difference in someone’s life.”
Oops I forgot MSM is on the side of our enemies.
I remain in awe of people like this. We owe them (and our soldiers) a debt of gratitude that can’t be repaid.
So you would just roll over and die? Heroes move forward regardless of the odds!
