Not to take anything away from this story, but as I read and break down the article:
  • She received nasty messages from a stranger about her kids
  • She called the cops
That's it. That's the end of her involvement. Then,
  • Cops check out the guy
  • Cops happen to run into him as he was leaving his house to perpetrate a massacre
I mean, that's fantastic and all, but if lucky circumstances like these--and that's what they are--make her a "hero", then what does that make of, I dunno, people who actually, knowingly put their lives in danger for the sake of others?

I mean...yeah, lets thank her profusely, but if you can get a medal for dumb luck, by the same logic, why not award medals to lottery winners? I fail to see the heroic act. That's all I'm trying to say.

Now watch my words get twisted, and my intent misconstrued...
