Antoinette Tuff - a classic example of nonviolence

In August of 2013, a Georgia school bookkeeper talked a gunman into surrendering...
Antoinette Tuff's response to the mentally ill gunman who shot at police, then entered McNair School where she worked as a bookkeeper last August was a perfect application of CLASSIC NONVIOLENCE! She stayed calm, listened to him, focused on his unmet needs, and shared her feelings with him, Antoinette Tuff was one of three McNair staff specially trained to deal with dangerous situations. In one interview, she said, "I thought it was a drill. We'd had training."
I'm hoping to learn more about her training, I have contacted the school, but right now they're having an ice storm, and to deal with that nonviolently, everyone should stay home! --Kezia Sproat

Tuff's new memoir Prepared for a Purpose, was just released January 2014.
