  • I am heartbroken by the news out of Pittsburgh last weekend.
  • And I am sending all of my love to our friends
  • and our viewers there.
  • And in times like these, people like our next guest
  • give me hope.
  • She is an incredible mom from Lumberton, New
  • Jersey, whose gut instinct helped
  • prevent another mass shooting.
  • Please welcome Koeberle Bull and her children
  • Olivia, Sophia, and Isaiah.
  • [MUSIC PLAYING]
  • (SINGING) Oh, I give my life, I give my life--
  • I give my life for you.
  • Oh, I give my life--
  • I give my life--
  • I give my life-- for you.
  • Hi.
  • Hi.
  • Hi.
  • How are you?
  • Hi.
  • (SINGING) did I come running home to you.
  • So nice to meet you.
  • This is--
  • We're ecstatic to meet you.
  • Well, I'm--
  • We're huge fans.
  • Can have a tissue?
  • All right, so this is an amazing story.
  • As Mary just told me, this is social media gone right.
  • This is actually an amazing story.
  • So you were a single mom.
  • Your husband died away--
  • died seven years ago of a--
  • May of 2012.
  • --of a heart attack.
  • So--
  • Of a heart attack.
  • That you are now a single mom of three kids.
  • They're beautiful.
  • Beautiful, beautiful kids.
  • And you received this horrible, hateful attack
  • on you and your--
  • Vile.
  • --children.
  • I mean, really horrible.
  • We're not even going to-- you can say what--
  • some of what he said.
  • He basically wished my children to be hung.
  • He wished us all to be dead.
  • Said I wanted to be of another race that--
  • just very vile things.
  • Yeah.
  • My first instinct was to protect them.
  • It was in the morning, so I shooed them out.
  • And--
  • Because you didn't know if he was coming for you, or--
  • I didn't know if he was in the area.
  • I had no idea where he was.
  • OK, so how did you find-- then what
  • did you do when you got this?
  • You called the police.
  • I called our local authorities.
  • And they took a report, which was fine.
  • But something just didn't sit right with me.
  • I got to work, and I knew my kids were safe.
  • But it just wasn't sitting well.
  • Right, so you're in New Jersey.
  • And you don't know where he is because he blocked you.
  • So then--
  • I copied and pasted it onto my Facebook.
  • And it was shared by a good friend of mine, Jerome Henry.
  • And they found out where he was, and he
  • was in Lawrenceburg, Kentucky.
  • So he's in Kentucky.
  • So you decide to call the authorities in Kentucky.
  • I called Lawrenceburg, Kentucky.
  • And they said it was a state police matter
  • because I was in New Jersey.
  • And I got patched through to officer Satterly,
  • who was amazing.
  • He, for lack of a better word, he
  • took it like he was investigating
  • a threat on his own children.
  • And that's what I needed.
  • I needed a dad.
  • I needed a dad to--
  • You needed-- yeah.
  • I needed that other part of to protect them.
  • Yes, so because some people would
  • have said like that person said it's a state issue.
  • You're in a different state.
  • So what happens when they go after this guy?
  • They found him pulling out of his driveway
  • with a Kevlar vest, a gun, and 200 rounds of ammunition,
  • and a detailed attack--
  • plan of attack on the local schools down there.
  • So--
  • You prevented a major attack on schools there?
  • And that's what they're telling me.
  • [INAUDIBLE]
  • [APPLAUSE]
  • I mean--
  • [APPLAUSE]
  • That's why with all the craziness
  • that's going on in the world out there
  • with the recent events that have happened, there were signs.
  • All you have to do is look at what people are posting
  • and look at the hateful--
  • and somebody-- that's when you see something,
  • you say something instead of everyone looking at it
  • like there's nothing wrong.
  • You see something, you say something.
  • I was going to do anything to protect them.
  • But good for you.
  • I mean, what an amazing mom, huh,
  • that she doesn't just get scared and do nothing.
  • But she goes after and then prevents this--
  • Yeah, I think that she's not just
  • the people in Kentucky's hero but also our hero.
  • [CROWD AWING]
  • It's good to have a hero as a mom.
  • Your mom's a hero.
  • All right, so and what is the officers,
  • the trooper's name that was in--
  • Officer Satterly.
  • I mean, he really--
  • He's my hero.
  • Let's bring him out then.
  • Oh, no way.
  • [MUSIC PLAYING]
  • (SINGING) [INAUDIBLE] Everybody knows it [INAUDIBLE] So,
  • yeah, we're doing down.
  • Everybody knows-- everybody knows where we're going.
  • Yeah, we're going down.
  • Everybody knows-- everybody knows where we're going.
  • Yeah, we're doing down.
  • Yeah, we're going down.
  • Oh [INAUDIBLE].
  • All right, well--
  • Oh, gosh.
  • This is amazing that you took this seriously and decided
  • to pay attention to this because a lot of people wouldn't have.
  • Why did you decide to do that?
  • I have a two-year-old myself.
  • When I seen that message, I thought
  • there's no room for that kind of hate in this world.
  • I called Koeberle, and I could tell in her voice
  • that she was very disturbed.
  • So I seen her Facebook of her three beautiful kids,
  • and I just felt like I owed it to her to help her.
  • So--
  • [APPLAUSE]
  • Thank God, you did.
  • All right, so there's something you came here
  • to say to Koeberle.
  • On behalf of the Kentucky state police
  • and the communities that I serve,
  • we want to thank you for making that phone call.
  • If you hadn't made that phone call things
  • would have ended up a lot different.
  • You're a hero in a lot of people's eyes
  • in Lawrenceburg, Anderson County, Kentucky,
  • and Shelby County.
  • Furthermore, the people of Anderson County
  • are wanting you to come down the end of November
  • to our annual Christmas parade.
  • So hopefully you can make that happen.
  • [APPLAUSE]
  • We'll make the trip.
  • It's his birthday.
  • [CHUCKLES]
  • What was that?
  • November 30th is his birthday.
  • So it's going to be a great birthday.
  • That's your birthday?
  • Yep.
  • That's going to be a good birthday present.
  • Well, we decided we felt like you needed some place to go
  • and relax and just take a vacation and just chill,
  • because that's--
  • so we're going to send you on a one-week trip
  • to the Intercontinental Fiji Golf Court Resort and Spa.
  • That's a spectacular beach.
