Details have emerged about Sgt. Kimberly Denise Munley, the police officer and SWAT team member who shot alleged Ft. Hood killer Maj. Nidal Malik Hasan even as he shot her, rendering him unable to kill more people -- namely, that she's a superhero:



"Her partner in Wrightsville, Investigator Shaun Appler, recalled how Sergeant Munley saved him one night when she wrestled a large man off him after the man had pinned him down and was trying to take his gun. She earned the nickname Mighty Mouse for that, he said."

And there's more!


"One neighbor, Sgt. First Class William Barbrow, said that about a year ago Sergeant Munley chased down a burglar who had been prowling around the neighborhood."



"She was also scrupulously honest, friends said. A year ago, she took pains to pay for the damage she caused to a neighbor’s car with her sport utility vehicle, even though no one had seen the accident."

We basically have another Sully on our hands, here.
