You are viewing the event with hindsight (knowing what happened/knowing what you're looking for.

He didn't, he experienced it has it unfolded.
He wasn't sitting there looking back waiting for the gunman he knew would appear.

He was going through his normal day, doing his normal thing, in condition white.

When shots/yelling broke out, he didn't know what was going on. His pulse went through the roof, his adrenaline rush/dump didn't help him coldly/clearly OODA.

Think about a time in your life where you were seriously startled by something. Now magnify that by a factor of at least 10x.

I could go further, but you should be getting my point by now.


"Men occasionally stumble over the truth, but most of them pick themselves up and hurry off as if nothing had happened."

"If you have integrity, nothing else matters. If you don't have integrity, nothing else matters".

"A person who won't reason has no advantage over one who can't reason."

"Facts do not cease to exist because they are ignored."

“Ignorance is a lot like alcohol: the more you have of it, the less you are able to see its effect on you.”
