Wow. What an amazing story. Russell and Sgt. Epperly are the kinds of heroes I most admire. Russell's kindness saved the life of a hurting soul and Sgt. Epperly's instinctively right choices under pressure preserved a man's life when he might have been justified in ending it. He didn't let fear rule him, even in the harshest circumstance. These men embody love for their neighbor.

Beautiful example of the power of one person to change things for the better. Let's all pray that he gets the help he needs to recover.

The recount of events tell a sad story. I wish for all the players in this situation to be happy and well :)

In light of recent events, perhaps the policemen involved could provide training for Newport News and Hampton. All joking aside, Kudos to the officers involved and I hope the Marine gets the help he needs.
