Jarrell Brooks is the hero! I saw those idiot parents parading around media circuits, giving their “Woe is me” stories. Father is a coward and put the baby down. The mother (who I thought was innocent at first) is actually just as cowardly as the father. She didn’t really have a choice and just ducked with her kids. This kid’s actions was a true definition of a man and a good human being. He covered them, took a bullet for them, and lead them to safety. The mom NEVER acknowledged this gentleman while telling their stories nor did she ever thank him. Those stupid parents took all the credit for what this young man did.

I hope she said NO to his proposal! A man that cant stand behind and protect his family is NOT A MAN! I could have never left my family to fend for themselves? How would he have felt if they didnt make it? Geez! As for the guy that saved them, Wow, Bravery… I would have done the same thing. As for the mom, WHat on earth were you even thinking taking a baby and a toddler to see that movie at midnight? Theres a parentng mistake there!

I CAN’T BELIEVE WHAT A COWARD OF A DAD HE IS. HIS 4 MONTH BABY COULD HAVE BEEN DEAD IF IT WASNT FOR JARELL,I TRULY HAVE ALOT OF RESPECT FOR HIM AND KNOW THAT GOOD PEOPLE IN THE WORLD EXIST. AS A MOTHER MYSELF ILL BE VERY TERRYFIED BUT STILL WOULD PUT MY KIDS FIRST AND GIVE MY LIFE FOR THEM IF I HAD TOO.I KNOW THAT THEIRS GOING TO BE JUSTICE AND EVERYTHINGS ON GODS HANDS..CRAZY GUY WANTED TO BE JOKER HAS TO BE TAKEN AWAY.

He is a hero. The kids dad dropped the 4 month old and ran. He even drove off if you read the news story. Then drove back later to check on his gf and kids. He ended up proposing in the hospital. The women should drop the loser and the loser should take lessons in being a real man from this 19 year old. God Bless you!

Mr Brooks is a hero in my books. Ok he doesn’t want to be called a hero. What about him being called An guardian Angel sent from God. Blessing to Mr Brooks.

He is a hero. If it wasn’t for him, that monster James would of killed that baby. Thanks to him, a baby is still alive and can live. God bless him.

Good for him! That says a lot about him to help someone else when his own life was in danger.
