I keep seeing the video of the Black educator disarming the potential school shooter and it's all types of triggering.

The coach's actions (and the actions of the other adults) were heroic by definition. Thank you for saving others. 1/

Also, it should not be the expectation of educators to figure out how to disarm potential shooters. I can't read that educator's thoughts, but I don't think that was a "loving" hug. That looked like "I better hold on to save my life" hug. 2/

And we know damn well that if police officer were outside that window and saw the Black man with the gun it would have been less than four seconds before they opened fire. We can be your heroes, but not be in our own houses or backyards or neighborhoods. 3/

Yeah, it read as "restraint" not "hug" to me.

And a lot of folks take away seems to be “see all we need is more love and empathy in this world@ and it’s infuriating. These children need more than “love” and a hug, they need mental health services and extremely less access to guns.

Yeah the coach may have even presented it to the agitated individual as a reassuring and comforting hug, but It looks like his purpose was to contain and hold onto that person.
 
Please please please read this. It’s so important on multiple levels.

I just don’t understand how they walk into school with shotguns or AKs
