It Can’t Happen To Me. The Active Shooter.

Can you be caught in the middle of an “Active Shooter” situation?  Yes.

Is it likely? No.

It’s still a smart thing to watch the above video put out by the DHS?  I say Yes.

These events rarely happen.  When they do happen, the media will cover these events for days on end.  It’s all you’ll hear about every minute of the day.  As the media waits for new updates to the unfolding situation they will fill air time by bringing on security experts to talk about what they don’t know and “speculate” on what they think is happening.  The media will ask the witnesses dumb questions like ” what did the shots sound like?” and the witness will say Pow! Pow! Pow!

I’ve given “Active Shooter” presentations to healthcare organizations before.  The main thing to remember is that “YOU ARE ON YOUR OWN” when the shooting starts.  The police are reactionary.  When seconds count, the police are minutes away.  It’s not the fault of the police.  That’s just just the way it’s set up.  They cannot be everywhere at once.

You have to do what you feel is best for you if you’re caught up in an active shooter situation.

I promote not hesitating on making the decision to get the hell out and away as fast as you can by any mean possible.  Break a window if you have to and make a run for it!

I write in my book about the many individuals living among us who are very unhappy and disgruntled about their station in life.  The most dangerous person is someone who feels like they have nothing left to lose.
