“"It amazes me how so many people here know exactly how they would handle this situation"

So you have no idea what you would do in this situation.”

Bruce Winterburn on Dec 9, 2013 at 13:41:54

“Would I go outside? Off the cuff, I would say no but maybe there was a reason he chose to go outside that I'm not aware of. Why didn't he wait for the police? Why 4 shots and not just one. My point is each situation is different and I don't have all the details except for what is in the news and we all know how accurate that can be. On what I have read, I would like to think I would stay with my fiancée holding the gun waiting for the police while staying on the line with the 911 operator hoping the suspect doesn't decide to break in forcing my hand but I also know that little things we don't think of can change that.”
