These guys are genuine heroes. And it was all part of their jobs, their training, their duties.
It makes an amazing story. The guys are described in the Daily Mail: Revealed: Hero police officer who shot down suicide bomber in Turkish airport saving dozens of lives SURVIVED bomb blast - and is recovering in hospital.
They've revealed their names, and you'll have to go there to see them, for they'll have to remain unsung heroes on these pages. There's no need to expose their families to risks of retaliation.
One of the heroes was killed by a suicide bomb after he recognized and tried to stop a terrorist. The other, the one we've seen in the video, shot and wounded a terrorist. When he approached, he recognized a bomb threat and took off running. Unfortunately, he was injured. But the news report suggests he will survive. And the suicide bomber got his own death wish fulfilled.
Hats off to these guys and all the others who put their lives on the line to protect innocent people from the despicable people who would do them harm to further their misguided religious beliefs. And while we're tipping our hats, let's not forget the brave officer in Garland who saved countless lives last year at the Pam Geller event.
Let us hope we have more like them around, lots more, whether they be law enforcement officers or armed civilians, as the Isis threat to Americans continues to grow.
