Antonio Charro talks to Anderson Cooper about helping a victim who he says was shot, possibly in the chest, during the shooting at the Clackamas Town Center mall in Oregon. Charro tried to turn the woman over to see if she was breathing. "I stayed there until a nurse showed up...and she knew what to do," he says.
I am sick and tired of seeing the photo of these maniac killers of our innocent fellow citizens. It's time to show the faces of the slaughtered to honor them and not sensationalize the accused killer. To me it's an insult to the families of those lost in the shooting spree to see the face of the killer all over the TV, internet and newspaper. If you agree with me let those media folks know how you feel, I'm certain I'm not alone in my feelings.
Yesterday when I heard the news that there was a shooting in an Oregon mall, I started to panic because my daughter works in a mall at Macy's in a small time in Oregon. I started calling her, but she did not answer the phone, My granddaughter called me that there was an emergency and to call her back.Somebody had told her that the shooting had been in Medford, Oregon where my daughter works. I called my daughter back and left a message to please call us back as soon as possible.She called me back and told me that she was OK. I was relieved to hear from her. (the shooting did not happen in Medford, it happened near Portland Oregon).
