I know what just about every individual would say if asked what they would do..
Kinda like those who bash combat veterans who crack or go awhol I think the vast majority would piss their pants if faced with real combat..
No one can truely say how they would act if faced with almost certain death..
There are countless examples of police officers who refused to put themselves at risk to attemp to save someone..
INFACT THERE IS NO LEGAL REQUIREMENT THAT A POLICE OFFICER TAKE ANY ACTION TO SAVE YOU...
I’m positive people are screaming for his prosecution..but he did nothing illegal. So that’s laughable. .
Obviously, he doesn’t deserve to guard anything ever again, but still..
So just to avoid all the macho “I would have gone in and put Rambo to shame and save the day!”
I’m not asking what you personally claim you would do..
I’m asking what percentage of Americans would have gone inside the building???
I personally bet it is around 10%...
I think it takes a special person to forfeit his life for a stranger.. really in this situation it is potentially forfeiting your life JUST FOR THE CHANCE TO SAVE A STRANGER...
Can we blame someone for not being a hero??
Make no mistake he was a victim too..
