Fast-moving, scary shootout caught on surveillance video. Lots of lessons here if you look for them.
Reminder: I don't post these just for people to cheer, but for us all to *learn* from what we see. This is one way something violent can happen. The best way to watch videos like this is with your sound turned off. Mentally put yourself in the place of one of the people in the video, as much as possible in the same frame of mind as they would likely be.
Example: if you're the receptionist, you would probably be relaxed, comfortable in your normal office environment; thinking about something practical like what you need to do next while you hold the door open for the new clients, etc.
After putting yourself in that mental place, watch the video thinking about what you would like to do, or like to be able to do, if you were in that person's spot in a situation such as this. Be honest and realistic about what your abilities actually are, and about the tools you would actually have. Do you always carry a gun? Would you be able to access a firearm, dressed as you normally dress at work? If you might not or would not have a gun, what are some other options you might have available to you? Have you _practiced_ using those options?
One thing to notice in this video was how some of the people dove to the ground. Do you think this was a good tactic in this situation? Why or why not? What were some of the dangers they might have avoided by doing this? What were some of the dangers they might have created for themselves?
Don't just watch. Watch and *learn.*
