(Lance Corporal) Feiler was a freshman at Columbine High School during the infamous 1999 shooting, in which two students killed 12 others and one teacher before turning their weapons on themselves. He joined the Marine Corps to build up his experience for a career in law enforcement.
“I wanted to help people and maybe pave the way for a career in SWAT to help people out of situations like (Columbine),” Feiler said.
Obviously a warmongering automaton, no?
I like this quote:
He recalled sitting in his math class when the shooting started.
I'll bet he'll never forget that math class!!!
The article ends thusly:
After the Marine Corps, he plans to join the Aurora Police Department in Denver to begin his law enforcement career and live closer to home.
“I really miss Colorado. I didn’t realize how cool it was until I left,” he said. “I want to get back into the mountains and do some snowboarding.”
I really miss Colorado, too. That's partly why I'm taking my son there for our big vacation this summer.
