here's the kicker...the shooter was white.
the bookkeeper was black.

'Black person keeps crazy white person from shooting up a school!'

Bravo to her for talking him down, but it would have been preferable had she shot & killed him....
School clerk Antoinette Tuff in an interview on ABC's "World News with Diane Sawyer" said she worked to convince the gunman to put down his weapons and ammunition.

"I told him,`OK, we all have situations in our lives," she said. "It was going to be OK. If I could recover, he could, too."
