I’m almost surprised NBC posted this but, there it is, a story of good guys with guns saving the day. But they are also more than happy to point out De Caro is ex special forces and a “military expert” and that Russell is a former sheriff’s deputy (they don’t mention she was a reserve deputy who never worked patrol).
So you see, they are both still “experts” and not just regular people like the rest of us. Because of their past lives, they retain the skills and rights with which the rest of us can’t be trusted. They aren’t your usual private citizens. Be that as it may, we’re certainly glad that they are both OK.
