There have been a lot of videos of all kinds of action at the riots across the country.

But one of the more striking videos showed just how out-of-control things could get in a hurry. But for the quick action of a well-trained private security guard, there might be a lot of dead folks in Seattle.

Seattle was already a cesspool of radical leftist riot action even before all the current Antifa actions.

But media was covering the riot there and reporting how the rioters had broken into police cars, then set them ablaze. ACAB was sprayed on one of the cars, it means “all cops are bastards” and is a common Antifa/radical left expression. Suddenly, one of the rioters brandished an AR-15 taken from the police car and what happened next was very quick.

The man who responded quickly and professionally to immediately take the gun out of the kid’s hands before he accidentally or otherwise shot someone turned out to be a private security guard for the local media folks who were covering the riot.


Thank God for the quick movement of this guy. Turns out there’s a reason he was so quick, he was a Marine. He later corrected what she says about “special forces.”

This could have been a tragedy.


Now that’s a real hero.
