'Integrity vs. a Man's Life'

August 28, 1987

Capra's deliberate decision to risk Horowitz's life rather than to permit a gunman to "hold the station hostage" was incredibly cruel as well as stupid.

To Horowitz's protest, "But I could have been killed," Capra's response, "You can always get out of the business" calls for immediate firing.

The mentally ill gunman, using a toy pistol, which Capra took to be lethal, showed a higher regard for human life. Of the two, I consider Capra the more dangerous.
