Amidst attacks on America, there are sometimes heroes who emerge to stop bad guys in their tracks. One of those heroes is police officer Jason Falconer, who shot and killed Dahir Adan, the man who stabbed nine people in a terror attack in a Minnesota mall on Saturday. Falconer, who was off duty at the time of the stabbing spree in St. Cloud's Crossroads Center mall, is being credited for saving numerous lives.
