Antoinette Tuff, you are excellent. And, you have balls of steel!
For those of you that have never had the pleasure of someone holding a gun on you, your first impulse is to crap your pants. That failing, if you can find your voice you try to reason with the guy with the gun. Antoinette Tuff has testicles as big as any man I have ever met. Ms. Tuff talked a gunman at a local school, actually played “middle-woman” communicating between the gunman and police. AND, SHE DID AN EXCELLENT JOB!
It does not matter what the gunman’s intent. He stood at the entryway of the school with a gun and lots of ammo and some form of ill intent in mind. For a middle-aged Black Woman to stand strong and without a waiver to her voice handle the situation as well as she did bespeaks more than bravery. All I can say is, Ms. Tuff, you are quite a gal, good job!
