And if we don't do something about this, something's going to happen to this woman.'" The police were called and when the drink was tested, it was found to contain Valium.

There is a much bigger hero than Colt Haugen: Craig Pepin! Pepin gave his life saving others and he is more than a hero, a saint! Mark Kram, a man of Jewish origin, shot the bad guy saving many lives and he is a Yiddish Tom Selleck and has a strength of a Cossack.
