Video shows Ottawa gunman storming Parliament Building

Anderson Cooper looks at the security camera video that captured the Ottawa shooting suspect driving away from the War Memorial. The suspect was also recorded arriving at the Parliament building and running inside moments before bullets rang out. Anderson also looks at the starkly different event that went on there today,  the standing ovation for Sergeant-at-Arms Kevin Vickers who shot and killed the gunman.

Sergent-at-Arms Vickers was hailed as a hero when he returned to Parliament today. Prime Minister Stephen Harper was their to paying tribute.

    Well Mr Cooper I watched the show and I have to say it was well done Thank You
    If you want to see another touching side of this story today the Guards at the Nation War Monument in Ottawa were reinstated and took there post. It was suppose to be a quite ceremony but then Thousands of people came from no ware and watch, clapped and finally went to the Unknown Solders grave and Cried. At the same time down the Highway Of Heroes in Ontario (Hwy 401) the young Cpl is being taken home to Hamilton to RIP. And if you don’t know what that Hwy is just do a search on it and it will bring you to a song about it and lots of photos.

    Thanks again for the Excellent coverage and for Honouring my Country.

    Anderson, good coverage , however, in Canada, we prefer to focus on the victims (Superheroes in this case) rather than the murderer.
    The murderer's identity, affiliations etc. are now the responsibility of the RCMP (royal Canadian Mounted Police).
    We're trying to Not romanticize the killer.
    Thank you for providing a forum for feedback.
