|Nick Meli, The Good Guy|
with the Gun
Thanks to all of you who called, wrote or tweeted to Nick Meli today. He was touched by those of you who said thank you. If you missed out please add to the few who posted a comment on the Victoria Taft Show facebook page or here. I'm sure he'll be checking them.
Our long interview is located in the 1pm and 2pm hours of the show here and here.
On December 11th, Nick heard gun shots and then took charge, got people to safety, called the cops--911 was busy--after which he realized he was on his own until the troops arrived. He secured his friends, ordered people to safety and then stalked the killer who had, by this time, killed Cindy Yuille and Steven Tyler and wounded a 15 year old girl.
|A Grateful Community Says Thanks|
To Jane, the woman who called near the end of the interview whose daughter was in the Charlotte Russe, well, you made Nick feel that his choice to stand down for a second and reassess was worth it. It was, you see, movement in the Charlotte Russe store that jolted him from tunnel vision and convinced him not to take the shot.
The next shot heard was the one in which the bad guy took his own life.
Nick is glad he didn't have to do it.
Good on you, Nick. You're a hero. I'm glad we could give you an award and a special gift certificate to enjoy some fabulous pizza at MMA star Chael Sonnen's Mean Streets Pizza. Wish we could have done more.
A grateful community should do no less.
