The Tucson Hero: Judge Roll

The videotape provides us with an inspiration, and a story not yet well-known.

Judge Roll was ‘intentionally trying to help [Giffords aide Ronald] Barber,’ adding, ‘It’s very clear to me the judge was thinking of his fellow human more than himself.’

The judge guides Mr. Barber to the ground, shields him with his body, and then tries to push himself and Mr. Barber away from the gunman, who was no more than three to four feet away as he fired, Mr. Kastigar said.

‘He pushes Mr. Barber with his right hand and guides him with his left hand. The judge was on top of him and is covering up Mr. Barber, literally lying on top of him, and his back was exposed,’ Mr. Kastigar said.

The judge was shot in the back." --NYT account quoted in HE

The HE author, John Hayward, makes the very Chestertonian comment:

...Loughner was obsessed with the paranoid delusions retailed in the now-infamous film Zeitgeist, including 9/11 conspiracy theories. To believe sincerely in such things is to move outside of the civilized world, which becomes an incomprehensible mechanism of conspiracy and evil. The light of civilization is beyond endurance to those who choose to live in such deep shadows.

It’s Judge John Roll who surpasses my understanding. He’s the one we should be trying to figure out.

Most of us know the quote "....greater love than this no man has, that he lay down his life for a friend."

Damn few of us step up and actually make it happen.

Hayward is, pardon the pun, "dead" wrong here and is obviously ill-informed, ill-evidentiary, sorely ill-researched, and extremely ignorant when it comes to the true nature of such government acts as 9/11, the creation/autonomony/oppression of/by "The Fed" (the "Central Bank"), Pearl Harbour, the true cause/nature/reason for/of The Depression, the unconstitutional gold "call-in" of the early '30s, The One World Order, the complete nefariousness of The FreeMasons, The (fourth and final) North American Union build, the reason for The Amero currency, etc., etc., etc....all the way to today's complete and utter vertical AND horizontal corruption from The White House to the municipal government levels.

You gotta be kidding me when Hayward writes, " believe sincerely in such things ["ZeigGeist, The Movie"] is to move outside of the civilized world, which becomes an incomprehensible mechanism of conspiracy and evil...the light of civilization is beyond endurance to those who choose to live in such deep shadows...". Such subjective complete bantering nonsensical ignorance by Hayward is inexcuseable idiocy and proves Hayward has no idea what he is writing about...truly.

TO IGNORE TRUTH is to live outside of the civilized world in "the blind faith" of "deep shadow darkness".

Endurance is only in every individual man and is never for one man to grade to and upon another. From these idiotic Hayward ramblings I can only conclude that my personal endurance, physically/mentally/physiologically/otherwise, rises aeons above someone like Hayward and I sure the hell don't want a Hayward next to my shoulder in my trench.

There are no paranoid delusions in "ZeigGeist, The Movie" and to post an ignorant "dig" against "ZeigGeist, The Movie" because of the actions of one deranged lunatic who cannot control himself puts Hayward in the same category with the rest of the men and women who feed upon their emotions regarding every sensationalistic media story that comes hither. There is no correlation, Hayward, between the actions of a nut and "ZeigGeist, The Movie". Simply put, "ZeigGeist, The Movie" is right, the nut was wrong, and so are you, Hayward. By the by, it is obvious YOU have never viewed "ZeitGeist, The Movie", and its sequels, because, if YOU had, YOU'd know that "ZeigGeist, The Movie", in the end, makes a true call back to the one simple reason for our

Do your research before you "blow your hard", Hayward. By the by, Hayward's meaningless rambling rhetoric really makes no sense is all just rambling words...and Hayward's comments here are CERTAINLY NOT Chestertonian.
