NY Post: Bar Owner as "Hero"
The owner of a "dank" pub in Linden NJ found what he thought was a bum sleeping on his front step. Turns out he was the man who had turned NYC on its ear with a bombing that dominated news since Saturday.
The bar owner is called a "hero" by the Post is an indication of the lowering threshold for being a hero. The guy called the cops who confronted the man. The man shot at the cop and a wild gun battle down a city street ensued.
The bumbling bomber was caught due to an alert citizen who watched the news and saw the image. That makes you an alert citizen, not a hero. However bar owners get little recognition so we will take some her.
