David Bailey

Women on social media are swooning over David Bailey, the Capitol Police Officer whose heroism saved many lives when James T Hodgkinson opened fire during a Congressional baseball practice in Alexandria, Virginia on Tuesday.

Bailey and fellow Capitol Officer Crystal Griner were assigned to guard Rep. Steve Scalise (R-La.) because he is the House Majority Leader.

Bailey and Griner were shot and wounded as they rushed onto the field to return fire after Hodgkinson began firing at the Congressman and their aides.

Lawmakers praised Bailey and Griner for their heroism and courage. “Had they not been there, it would have been a massacre,” U.S. Senator Rand Paul, (R-Ky.) told MSNBC News.

Both Bailey and Griner are expected to fully recover from their injuries.

Bailey's swarthy good looks attracted female admirers who flocked to his private social media pages. One reader emailed Sandrarose.com to ask for more information on the tall, dark and handsome hero.

    I want to hear about a black police officer saving a black person. We know many black males love to play Superman for white people yeah yeah I know that's his job.

  • IamAllnatural

    He iight, I don't know why they swooning. I'm just glad the suspect wasn't black!

  • IamAllnatural

    Yeah those eyes are spooky ?

  • Faux Gibbler

    He's classically handsome.

    She's too young and too tall for me. She's cute though.

  • https://sandrarose.com SandraRose

    What cop doesn't have crazy eyes? I thought you ladies liked bad boys?

  • Yardgirl

    I had to go back and look at those eyes. Yep crazy as a loon? ??

  • AlwaysPi7


  • Blaque Mahogany

    First thing I noticed. Pop up at your place hiding in the bushes even though y'all have been broken up for 3 yrs, choke the hell out of you because you bought the orange juice with pulp. Nah, I'm good...

  • http://batman-news.com Roderick2011

    Bad is one thing but serial killer is another.

  • Blaque Mahogany

    That part.

  • http://batman-news.com Roderick2011

    We know she's on the same 'team' as Brittany but are they related?

  • LibraGirlonly

    Sounds like something a fool would do if you ask me.

  • starbright9449

    Bailey looks like he's a beast in the bedroom!!! Damn I like looking at him, he does look like a woman-beater tho.

  • Cali

    This entire comment has me hollering????

  • Tequila Mockingbird

    So why become a police officer? So he can pick and choose who to help? That's his job. He's one of the rare good cops.

  • http://batman-news.com Roderick2011

    What's the minimum age, Sandra?

  • Messenger

    This man saved lives and the best we can do is picture him with a crazy looking background????!!!! ONly in Amerikkka folks!

  • Tammie Reed

    Yep, he is a cutie pie! #ThatsBae LOL! They kept showing his pic on GMA this morning, I had to do a double take, he almost look like my hubby.

  • Fated4greatness

    He cute but he ain't all dat. Very thankful they will recover from their injuries. GOD is good!

  • Yardgirl

    Not the juice with the pulp!!??

  • Malcom Flex


  • casiepriest33

    Girl u lucky!

  • BRuhman_Vista

    Didn't know ol' boy was Frat. Way to rep '06 bro! ? Praying that you and the other injured have a full recovery. ?

  • BRuhman_Vista

    He's an Alpha Man so he is "all dat" ?

  • stacee

    He favors Nnamdi Asomugha in the picture with the black jacket on.

  • nick c

    Might get a movie made over it kinda like clear and present danger

  • LibraGirlonly

    He should be helping his own and in his own community.

  • Evillene

    I feel for any black man or woman (and certainly a black lesbian) that has to put themselves in harm's way to protect those GOP goons. Saving Rand Paul's life is the least rewarding job in America.

  • Tequila Mockingbird

    There's no such thing. Oh, you mean helping his own in his own community as in humans?

  • hottlanta

    Ladies, I just read he puts ketchup on everything and Griner is married. So go to Kroger and stock up.

  • Kilroy

    FRAT! '06!

  • AnastasYah

    The word hue means color. Do you get where I'm going with this?

  • MistaO

    Quite interesting that with ALLthe news coverage on this story, I come to SR and learn more about these heros.

  • Mr.LeBrickJames

    Exactly. So then black folk shouldn't become police officers? ...or they shouldn't protect people they think wouldn't do the same for them? What a strange, nonsensical comment that was.

  • BacktolurkingIgo

    God bless both of them in their healing, the people they are protecting probably would not lift a finger to help either one of them.

  • Ryan

    Just saw him on ESPN throwing a pitch in a game tonight. Glad he's ok.

  • Enoughsaid2020

    Glad they are ok. Sending prayers to all of the victims, and families.

  • Peter Piper ATL

    Much appreciation for you Sandra for highlighting these black heroes because Lord knows FOX News wasn't gonna show them any love at all.

    He's alright looking, nothing to lose your shirt over.

  • Jussjess25

    Im glad it wasnt worst then what it was.. but its interesting to see how black people always seem to save a white mans life. Im not being facetious when I say that. Im simply trying to shed light the fact that they need to learn how to treat us, because we're good people. But has anyone else noticed that they have not shown the white man's pic who shot up place on tv at all? Anyone?

  • Mama Dee’s Wig Maker

    Something about his eyes says he's crazy...he's very attractive though

  • Guess Who

    I agree with you about his wild ass eyes, lol.

  • The Realest 514

    I said the same thing. He's handsome but his eyes say he will hunt you down. Something isn't 'right' with anyone taking a bullet for someone who isn't family. I don't care what the job description says.

  • Tr


  • Quitedeliteful

    You got me second guessing now . I was alright with his eyes but now you got me wondering if the man isn't psycho!!! LOLLOLLOL!!!!!!

  • Quitedeliteful

    I've seen his picture a couple of times on the news but not as much as if it was a black man. They woulda had the black guy looking gruesome and menacing. This guy just looked bat-shyt crazy. They interviewed his wife on tv and she seemed just as shocked as everybody else...

  • Audrey Nauden

    EXACTLY, Did he speak up for our BROTHERS being gunned down by COPS? I'm not impressed, glad he's living.

  • Jussjess25

    Oo really I didnt know that I havent seen anything on him.

  • Not Down With The BS

    He is foine!

  • weneedtowork

    Your point is more an argument to legalize drugs. Do that and you won't see black on black shootings and much less cop shooting black teens. Generally speaking and I'm not trying to be prejudice but sure seems like white kids buy the dope from the black kids for economic reasons and the black kids get arrested, shot and all that which goes with the market of drug dealing.

  • Quitedeliteful

    They talk about him more than they show his pic...

  • shun king

    "when master sick we sick"

  • Tony Winston

    no he needs to get a man, we know how to treat a good black man, yasssss

  • Storm’s Rage!
