Capitol Hill officer David Bailey is a true hero for his courageous actions during yesterday’s shooting attack at a Congressional baseball practice. Bailey was wounded in the attack, but still managed to take down the shooter. Had Bailey not acted as he did, the horrific event could have been a massacre.
Tonight, at the Congressional Charity Baseball Game, Bailey was given the well deserved honor of throwing out the first pitch. He made his way to the mound with the aid of crutches, due to injuries suffered in the attack, and received an emotional reception from the crowd at Nationals Park.
We are lucky to have you David Bailey. Thank you for your service.
