Dramatic video has emerged of a former college football standout and high school coach disarming a distressed and suicidal student who had brought a loaded shotgun to Parkrose High School in Portland, Oregon.

Keanon Lowe, a former Oregon Ducks wide receiver and a current football coach for the high school, is seen in the dramatic school surveillance footage holding Angel Granados-Diaz in one hand and grasping the loaded shotgun the Parkrose student had brought to campus in the other. Granados-Diaz had come to school with the intention of committing suicide.

After another school staff member retrieves the gun, Lowe can be seen embracing and hugging the distressed young man.

I felt compassion for the kid, to be honest. I had a real-life conversation. Obviously, he broke down and I just wanted to let him know that I was there for him. I told him I was there to save him — I was there for a reason and that this is a life worth living.”

Lowe also spoke of his belief that the universe works in unpredictable ways, and stated that he doesn’t view himself as a hero for his actions in the terrifying incident.

Granados-Diaz was sentenced to three years probation for felony possession of a firearm in a public building on Thursday. A judge mandated that he seek the mental health treatment he needs. Fortunately for the young man, the concerning incident played out in a manner that was far better than it could’ve been, thanks to the sudden brave actions of Lowe.

JP Morgan Bank Drops Foreclosure Attempt on 100-Year Old WWII Veteran After NY Post Report

The bank had been trying to foreclose on a 100-year old veteran.

One of the biggest banks in the United States is giving up on a sleazy attempt to foreclose on the home of a 100-year old World War II veteran, after the New York Post reported on the legal actions that JP Morgan Chase was taking against James Been last week.

The multinational investment bank, with holdings of more than $2.5 trillion dollars, had been trying to foreclose on Been’s home in the Bedford-Stuyvestant neighborhood of Brooklyn. Attorneys for JP Morgan had filed a foreclosure claim in the court system after Been ceased making payments on a $100,000 loan his now-deceased wife had taken out with him in 2006, claiming that he hadn’t been involved in the issuance of the loan and that it was improper for the bank to issue it to a man in his 80’s.

After the Post’s report on the matter, JP Morgan humbly confirmed that they were giving up on the attempt to evict a 100-year old man from the home owned by his family for generations. “Mr. Been will not be evicted from his home and the loan will be forgiven,” said a bank spokesperson.

Been had served in the segregated 93rd Infantry Division during World War II, seeing action in the South Pacific theater of the war. The centenarian described many of his experiences in the armed forces and living in the United States when many communities practiced segregation in his initial profile by the Post. He went on to have a career as a trolley operator and bus driver before retiring.

Fortunately, it appears the shaming of the rapacious financial interests has ensured the veteran will keep his home.
