BRAVE! ROBERT ENGLE: ANTIOCH CHURCH USHER STOPS EMANUEL SAMSON DURING MASS SHOOTING; HOLDS HIM AT GUN POINT
Brave church usher Robert Caleb Engle, 22, stopped the mass shooting at Burnette Chapel Church in Antioch, Tennessee today. Engle had ran up to confront Samson and despite being repeatedly pistol-whipped in the head, was able to force Samson to shoot himself in the chest. When Samson was wounded, Engle then went to his car, grabbed his pistol, and returned to hold the shooter at gunpoint until the police arrived.
He’s being hailed as a hero who risked his own life to stop the gunman, Emanuel Samson. Engle Said in a statement after the shooting: ‘I Pray That Through All of This … People Will Come to Know Christ’
Nashville police chief Steve Anderson said Engle was a hero.
“He’s the hero here, he’s the person who stopped this madness in its tracks.”
‘There was a significant struggle between the two,’ he said. ‘During the struggle, the gunman shot himself, probably not intentionally.’
Melanie Crow Smith, 39, of Smyrna, died and another six were injured when Samson, 25, opened fire. Family members and church parishioners said pastor Joey Spann and his wife Peggy Spann were also both shot. Married mother-of-two Smith died at the scene.
The shooter’s condition is not life-threatening and he is under heavy police guard at Vanderbilt Medical Center.
No Steelers were present for the national anthem except for former Army Ranger LT Alejandro Villanueva stood near the tunnel.
Steelers coach Mike Tomlin told CBS Sports sideline reporter Jamie Erdahl why his team will remain in the locker room during the National Anthem, via NFL.com:
“You know, these are very divisive times for our country and for us as a football team it’s about us remaining solid. We’re not going to be divided by anything said by anyone. … “[I told our players] if you feel the need to do anything I’m going to be supportive of that — as Americans you have that right. But whatever we do we’re going to do 100 percent, we’re going to do together. We’re not going to let divisive times or divisive individuals affect our agenda.”

At least 100 players across the country either knelt or sat during the anthem in protest
( Daily Mail )NFL players have defiantly reacted to President Donald Trump’s criticism, with at least 100 players kneeling, sitting linking arms, giving black power salutes and not even showing up for the national anthem out of protest.
Players from both the Baltimore Ravens and Jacksonville Jaguars were the first to protest by taking a knee ahead of their game at Wembley Stadium in London on Sunday morning.
At least 20 Patriots players were spotted kneeling as Tom Brady linked arms with his teammates.
Pittsburgh Steelers players were absent from the sideline and remained in the locker room during the Star Spangled Banner. Alejandro Villanueva, who served three tours in Afghanistan, was the only Steelers’ player to stand outside the tunnel for the anthem.

( The Blaze ) Owners of several St. Louis restaurants found “Whites Only” stickers placed on their establishments’ doors and windows Tuesday morning, StLToday reported — an act that’s left the proprietors disturbed.
“I was hit with a nasty surprise,” Qayum Mohammed, owner of Afghan restaurant Sameem, told the outlet. “I thought ‘Wow, that’s ignorant.’”
Mohammed was also concerned over why his establishment was targeted, StLToday said — until he learned that stickers were placed on at least three other restaurants in the Grove, a well-known and diverse entertainment district.
“I was very relieved,” he told the outlet.
Surveillance video shows a group walking by a restaurant with one of them placing a sticker on the front door and then the group continuing down the sidewalk, KMOV-TV reported.
Martina Big, white flight attendant turned glamour model with 32S breasts says she now identifies as black after injecting her skin with melanin. She used tanning injections and a sun-bed to give herself ‘crispy brown’ skin: ‘It’s better to be black, the feeling inside is just better.’
Daily Mail reported:
A white glamour model who spent £50,000 on surgery in a bid to transform herself into an ‘exotic Barbie’ appeared on TV to tell the world she now ‘identifies as black woman’.
Former air hostess Martina Big, who claims she is 28 and a size 6, has boosted her breasts to a size 32S, and used tanning injections and her own powerful 50-tube sunbed to achieve her ‘dark, crispy brown’ complexion.
The German tanning addict, who claims her breasts are ‘Europe’s biggest’, appeared on The Maury Show where she told the host: ‘I am black. That is my race. I can’t wait to go to Africa because I hear the food is tasty.
‘It’s better to be black, the feeling inside is just better.’
In January, Martina had three melanin boosting injections that have turned her a deep shade of mahogany.
‘I am the proud owner of black skin,’ she tells the audience. ‘If they start fading, I won’t feel less black. I will ask them for more.’
