    Cool No Shooting But Worth Reading.

    Colorado Man in Wheelchair Tackles Suspected Child Molester in Wal-Mart
    Wednesday, September 30, 2009



    ADVERTISEMENTCameron Aulner doesn't think of himself as a hero. The wheelchair-bound Colorado resident says he just did what anyone else would do when he saved a little girl from a child molester right in the Wal-Mart where he works.

    Witnesses say a man sexually assaulted a young girl inside a Wal-Mart in Westminster on Sept. 19, picked her up and then tried to flee the store, KDVR FOX 31 TV reported.

    Aulner, 22, was working at the Comcast table in the front when he heard the commotion. He tackled the suspect, 34-year-old Kevin Salyers, before he could escape and held him until cops arrived, he said Tuesday in an interview with KDVR.

    “It was something that happened so fast, I didn’t even think about it,” Aulner told the station. “I’m not a hero, I just did what you’re supposed to do.”

    Salyers was arrested and charged with sexual assault on a child, police told FOXNews.com on Wednesday.

    Aulner has been in a wheelchair since he fell from a roof while hanging up Christmas lights, he told the station. He said he might get an award from police for his actions.

    A gun isn't always the answer but the right attitude is!

    Outstanding!

    The caliber of the man and the mindset is more important than the caliber of the gun.

    kudos to the young man. All it takes is the WILL to act. And you know there was probably a dozen "able bodied" men frozen like deer in the headlights.

    When there's a little girl being kidnapped it's a whole different story.

    I saw the story yesterday and thought that the employee was definitely a hero. He needs to get the Employee of the Millennium award.

    There is a time and place, and one size does not fit all situations.

    It wasn't a case of guy running off with a shoplifted pack of Twizzlers in hand and an HP printer under his arm.

    This guy risked it all, and did good.

    Oh I agree but every other time something like this has come up the song of "I am not my brothers keeper I only protect my own"and "don't get involved be a good witness" is deafening.
