The Woman who Stopped the Gunman: "I Loved Him"


You might have seen this already -- it's an interview with Antoinette Tuff, the school bookkeeper in Georgia who talked down the troubled young man who was preparing to start shooting fifth graders at a school in Decatur.

But if you haven't, take a look. Her level head alone is extraordinary, but what's really striking is her take on the young man. Where others would (quite rightly) see just a threat, a killer, she saw a person in need.
