Calipari invites Capitol Police officer shot during today’s attack to be the Y at a Kentucky game

You’re looking at David Bailey, one of two Capitol Police officers that was injured during today’s shooting at a GOP congressional baseball practice in Alexandria, Virginia. Bailey, age 32, was shot in the leg as he charged the gunman, 66-year-old James T. Hodgkinson. While recovering in the hospital this afternoon, Bailey, a North Carolina Central University graduate, received a phone call from John Calipari thanking him for his heroics and inviting him to be the honorary “Y” at an upcoming Kentucky game.

“Just got off the phone with David Bailey of Capitol Police, one of two police officers who saved a lot of lives today,” Cal tweeted minutes ago. “David was hit in the ankle as he charged the gunman. What a hero and what courage. I told him he’s gotta come to a game and do the Y. #BBN, make sure our prayers are with all those who were injured today in the shooting.”

This morning, Senator Rand Paul told CNN that the only reason everyone at the field was still alive was because of Bailey and his fellow Capitol Police officers.

“Our lives were saved by the Capitol Police. Had they not been there I think it would have been a massacre,” he said. “The field, I mean, was basically a killing field.”

House Speaker Paul Ryan agreed.

“We are, as ever, awed by the tremendous bravery of the Capitol Police,” Ryan said. “I expressed our profound gratitude to them. It is clear to me, based on various eyewitness accounts that without these two heroes – Agent Bailey and Agent Griner – many lives would have been lost.”

Hopefully Agent Bailey will take Calipari up on his offer this season so Kentucky fans can give him a proper ovation.

    Would also love to ask the BBN to keep Matt Mika intheir thoughts and prayers. He was shot twice in the chest at the practice, too. I played Hill softball rec league against him for years. Good guy who is now in critical condition.

    Cal is a genius but, how did he get this guys number? Does he know the guy?

      My guess is since he only called one of the 2 Capitol Police officers this office knew someone who knew Cal.

      It would be nice to have them both to a game, but there is only one “Y” in “Kentucky”.

    The only thing that stops a deranged Democrat with a gun is a good guy with a gun…

      Republicans extremists have killed 160 people in this country since 2000. But you keep thinking the dems are the problem. (Oh yeah, R and NRA member Timothy McVeigh blew up a federal building contains a daycare center)

    Ok Boris…that is typical of you cons…resulting to name calling when you clearly do not have a leg to stand on. We shall see all what happens then won’t we? That is unless the twitter-in-chief decides to fire another prosecutor that is getting too close to the truth (Comey, Yates, Bharara, and maybe Mueller?)…but eventually the truth will come out. You should want that as a good American right?
    As for the country not subscribing to my philosophy…the 35% who agree with you are shrinking every day as more proof comes out this cabal is only interested in lining its own pockets.

    This shooter was like the “Antifa” fascists on college campuses. He and they lack the knowledge and intelligence to win an argument in debate, so they resort to belligerent violence. Not acceptable in a civilized society.

    More censorship from ksr while they simultaneously gripe about Matt Bevin blocking people on social media. Hilarious!

      The arbitrary nature of the censorship is odd. I post a statement saying that violence is not an acceptable way to end debate in a civilized society, and that gets removed, yet explicitly inflammatory posts remain. Really?

      Agreed. I commended coach cal for wanting to honor a true hero and stated that this is not a political issue…but they felt the need to delete it.

    Keyboard commandos suit up! Looks like this comments section is about to get nuclear. Please give us all more of those shit political idealogies that have made you the apple of your mom’s eye and the king of her basement.

      Somehow I don’ t think that’s going to happen this time. I suspect a lot of people are rethinking the irresponsibility of overheated rhetoric right now. Even TV news channels have been more muted.
