    Shooting victim Chris Grant who was shot twice by the el paso mass shooter lied about running toward the line of fire and throwing sodas to prevent the shooter from hurting others, instead the footage in the store showed him in self preservation mode he didn't run toward the shooter throwing sodas according to police.

    He and his family went to the white house to be honored by Trump, Grant was arrested because he had a warrant and was a fugitive by the secret service so Trump gave the award to his mother instead.

    He would have gotten the same attention just being a shooting survivor, instead he created a fake story of heroism which is shameless. Also why go to the white house if you got a warrant out for your arrest anyone who steps into that building the do background checks. Im guessing he thought if he made up this heroic story he could make money off it and at the same time get his criminal record expunged.







    “Mr. Grant’s actions were captured on video, but they do not reflect his account to the media outlet [CNN],” Carrillo said. “It contradicts his statements, in fact… [H]e did not take any action towards the shooter.”

    Carrillo said surveillance footage shows Grant acting in “a manner of self-preservation, as best as I can describe it, and nothing else.”

    “I’m not demeaning his actions,” he added

    IIRC he received $16,000+ in donations for his heroic act.

    Well what did you expect? People love to lie and fabricate stories so they can get their 15 minutes of fame.

    Poor Beto, having to keep his hands at his sides for that picture must have been agonizing.

    There's no shame in doing what 98+% of us would do in a shooting and just try whatever we think would help our own self preservation the most in the most scary moment of our lives.

    Making up a story tho? Why, to just feel cool and get praise? He feel guilty for not trying something? For a quick go fund me payday? Also lol at drawing all that attention to yourself when there's a warrant out for your arrest. Maybe he thought if he could be remembered as an attempted hero they would quietly drop the charges?

    Man, that would be an awkward situation. Got warrants, but you're invited to the White house.

    What to do, what to do...

    Hopefully he does a better job with his "what are you in here for?" story while he's in the clink.

    Shows how dysfunctional the Trump white house is. Someone that requires Secret Service arrest intervention shouldnt even be put on the guest list.

    Lol fwiw, he was actually shot so at the very least, he can take solace in the fact that he didn't pull a Brian Williams.
