    Marine Poolee helped stop Colorado school shooting...

    A student who helped subdue one of the Colorado school shooters is a member of the Marines’ Delayed Entry Program, the U.S. Marine Corps said Wednesday.

    The Marines said the student, Brendan Bialy, put his own safety at risk and showed “courage and commitment” in helping tackle a gunman in the STEM School in the south Denver suburbs.
    At a press conference on Wednesday afternoon, Bialy said he tackled the gunman and fought back out of pure instinct.

    He said he refused to be a victim, and he has been getting online gratitude from as far away as Ireland.

    “The United States Marine Corps has confirmed that Brendan Bialy, a current poolee in the Marine Corps Delayed Entry Program (DEP), assisted in subduing an active shooter at STEM School Highlands Ranch on May 7, 2019,” Capt. Michael Maggitti said in a statement. “Brendan’s courage and commitment to swiftly ending this tragic incident at the risk of his own safety is admirable and inspiring. His decisive actions resulted in the safety and protection of his teachers and fellow classmates. Brendan joined the DEP July 12, 2018 out of Recruiting Sub-station Parker, CO, and is scheduled to ship to recruit training this summer.”

    The Delayed Entry Program allows prospective Marines to sign up days or months before they start training.

    Young men such as this give me hope for our younger generation as well as the future prospects of our Marine Corps. Seems that he has the "right" stuff to be a Marine. He said he refused to become a victim.

    This kid done good, no doubt. But lets not forget the kid who also bum rushed the shooter, but got killed doing it. He actually distracted the shooter enough to allow the poolee and two other kids to get their hands on him. Four young men did good, and sadly, one died, all doing their duty as citizens.
