French officer shows real grit during hostage situation

Some will say "he was doing what he was trained to do". Not sure how many would step up like this man did. It's wiring that makes guys like this.

RIP sir.

"Don't talk about it, BE about it."

Lt. Col. Arnaud Beltrame's actions exemplified that principle. Rest in peace, Sir...

RIP Sir.........

And yet we were taught in hostage school never to exchange places or relinquish our firearms. Thoughts?

That has been my thought, however, I was not there, and I don't know how the situation unfolded.

IMO, much like waiting on the school shooter to finish, you do what you know is right and let the chips fall where they may.

100% hero, again just my opinion.

It's ironic that the French, whom we dump on with fervor, produced this man.....and in the case of the school shooting recently, our American cop was a coward.

RIP, monsieur. Well done. Respect from this side of the pond.
