One thing that struck me following the horrific shooting in Aurora Colorado was the remarkable bravery and courage of the police who responded to the event. This wasn’t the SWAT team; it was your everyday beat cop. At the same time ambulances and firefighters were on the way, followed by FBI and ATF agents. And then there was the bomb squad who found the suspect’s apartment booby trapped.
The coordination between all of these agencies, as well as three local counties, was remarkable. Public servants we can all be proud of.
