Antoinette Tuff's 911 Call Recorded

Jezebel and Gawker both had articles today about Antoinette Tuff, the woman who talked down an armed gunman as he prepared to shoot up an elementary school yesterday. Her heroism is undesputed, but tonight on Last Word with Lawrence O'Donnell they actually played the audio of her 911 call with the police dispatch, who she had on the line the whole time. It will give you chills.

Tuff deserves all the medals this country has. She reportedly has had a really tough life, but its all been leading up to this moment where she was in a position to save the lives of countless children, as well as the mentally ill gunman. And she did it with compassion. Welp, better go, I'm crying now.
