  1. He was on the wrestling team at his Catholic HS and could not grab a young squabbling girl by the arm and put her on the ground? How brave to unload his firearm, that’s on him and he’s going down as someone who killed a young female. A young girl, with maybe a small knife?, A 16 year old in Foster Care with issues, and now a chest full of lead. A superficial wound that might require stiches and this guy could have saved the day with an accommodation. Again a youthful female is now dead and Mr. Nicholas E. Reardon is no hero. REDICULOUS!


    • Actually he didn’t unload his firearm. It only took him four shots to put the little savage down. A young aggressive, savage little shit is dead. Two other girls survived because of him.
