Grenade Wasn't Live, but Amtrak Officer Gripping It Didn't Know
Officer Rodney Chambers of the Amtrak police gets mad phat props for clamping down on what he thought was a live grenade so it wouldn't explode. What he did took quick thinking and a hell of a lot of courage; he was standing there clutching a possibly live grenade for 15 minutes.
I shudder to think how a typical D.C. cop would have reacted in this situation. Good thing this guy was there instead.
