A gun scare in a New York mall. “The whole mall was running one way,” a witness reveals. I’ve said it before, I’ll say it again. If there’s a terrorist attack or active shooter, think very carefully before you follow the crowd.
While we haven’t seen it here yet, foreign terrorists often start one attack to mass their victims and drive them to a second, even more deadly assault. Sometimes they wait for second responders. By the same token, there can be more than one active shooter.
Look before you run. Or, to paraphrase Rudyard Kipling, if you can keep your head when all about you are losing theirs, it might save your life.
