Video released showing coach disarming, embracing Oregon student

After encountering a student armed with a loaded shotgun, a coach calmly embraced the teen and defused the situation last May. Newly released footage from the incident shows Keanon Lowe comforting the student, identified as Angel Granados-Diaz. Portland, Oregon, school district has criticized the release of video footage saying it’s a violation of the Family Educational Rights and Privacy Act.

Pretty damn awesome human being. Totally did the Right Thing At The Right Time. Glad the kid is getting the mental health help he needs, that's another awesome thing to see happen for once.

I am not surprised that we didn't hear about this 5 months earlier. If nobody died, the MSM can't use it to push its gun control agenda, therefore no coverage. The coach is a hero and hopefully that kid will be alright.

That kid had probably never seen a true example of love in his life until that moment. The problem with most people these days is they need morals, values, and love.

I like the ending, except the part where the kid got charged with a felony, considering the situation.

What? Why wasn't this teacher armed? An opportunity lost for the shoot first club. I am chuckling at all the "I would have used my concealed weapon to gun down... etc. blah blah blah" thinly disguised local heros.

just another example of Society leaving those who don't fit in. These cases of armed students will continue until people understand and are compassionate like this coach.
