Woman Who Was Shot in L.V. Meets the Man Who Saved Her. “Look At Me. I’m Not Going to Leave You!”

by Tevye – What do you say to a person that risks their life to save yours? Or if it was you mother, sister or wife? When mere words are so inadequate. Justin Uhart was making a few bucks as a festival bartender. When the shooting started, he stayed. His ROTC training kicked-in. He told people standing there stunned to “Get the f— out and run! This is real! Get out!” A security-guard was shot through the head and fell on him. He assessed those on the ground, discerning who was twitching in their death throes, which he saw all to many of, and who needed help.

by Tevye – This story has a ‘Brubaker’ feel to it. It happened over four months ago, and until recently, was known by only a small handful of people. Last March, Democratic Mayor Ben McAdams put into play something he long felt compelled to do. Due to a state law, he had to select possible sites for three new homeless centers/shelters. Two for men and one for women and children. Regardless of the choices, it would prove highly unpopular in the neighborhoods. Each perspective area arose in fury at the idea. But it had to be done. He needed a more personal perspective. And it was this catalyst that solidified his decision. McAdams left work on a Friday with Patrick Reimherr, the Director of Government Affairs. They both wore three-day growth. No wallets, money, or I.D.’s  They were dressed in their oldest jeans, sneakers, sweatshirts and hoodies. Each had a small bag with some clothes, a blue tarp...
