    US Rep. Emanuel Cleaver helps woman in distress - News - Missouri - bnd.com

    KANSAS CITY, Mo. -- A spokeswoman for U.S. Rep. Emanuel Cleaver says the lawmaker doesn't want to be portrayed as a hero after stopping to help a woman in distress.

    The Democrat was riding in a car Friday in Kansas City when he spotted someone waving a hand from a clump of weeds.




    I don't much care for your positions but you sir ARE a hero. Very few would stop to investigate in those areas of town. Most would have waved back or simply ignored it.

    Job well done. :clap2:

    Hero? No, but a decent human being... absolutely. Good for him.

    If he's not a hero, then what is a hero?


    I think "hero" is an overused word, like "racist".

    I think I made myself quite clear. I agree 'hero' is an overused word. Which is kind of my point. He's not. But he is a decent human being. I see nothing wrong with being a decent human being. It's quite a good thing to be.

    OMG! He's a member of the CBC!

    Seriously, though, helping someone by the side of the road is risky and I wouldn't hesitate to label his deed heroic.

    In Missouri he was a decent human being. In California, Arizona or the Texas border he would be not only a fool, but likely a dead fool.

    We recognize great actions at a human level without partisanship.
