I cant be positive that you've never been through a traumatic event, but I can take a pretty good guess as no. Myself, I have been through one, and I can absolutely agree that times surrounding the event can get hazy. Bodily injury or no bodily injury, it happens. Saying that it is "convenient" that she claims this and basically calling her a liar is just plain ignorant.
Slow motion perception is perception of time in which things are perceived as moving slowly unlike everyday experience in some special situations like accidents. To a bystander watching this situation such as the accident, time is moving at a normal speed but to the individual in the accident, time seems like it has slowed down and they are able to think and act faster.

It actually worries and saddens me that most people do not possess such basic animalistic survival instincts, that so many of them curled up on the floor and kissed their own butts goodbye.

It isn’t all bad and it isn’t all good. She’s human though, so don’t call names. I hate to be against her in a way, but I very much do believe that she is using this tragedy for monetary gain and prompting herself as a model.
A four-year Navy veteran from Akron was among the dozens of people injured in the Colorado movie theater shootings last week. Gail Richards tells WKYC Channel 3 News that she believes her daughter's military experience may have saved her life.
22-year-old Carli Richards was hit with buckshot during the mass shooting at the midnight showing of "The Dark Knight Rises." (Courtesy: WKYC Channel 3 News) Carli graduated from Garfield High School before leaving Akron in 2008 to join the Navy. She is currently a fashion retailing student in Denver. Gail says her daughter, Carli, and her boyfriend ran to safety when they quickly realized gas canisters were released in the theater.
"Seeing the canister fly and the gunshots being shot – that replays in my mind," said Derrick Poage, describing the night of July 20 when a gunman killed 12 people and injured 58 at a midnight showing of "The Dark Knight Rises" in Aurora, Colo.
Poage, 22, who goes to college in Colorado, said he and his girlfriend were 20 feet away from the gunman when he opened fired and hurled a gas canister into the crowded, dark theater.
"When I see the fire coming out of the shotgun, that is when I feel it is real," he said.
"It was something I thought I had to to," he said. "I did not want her family not to have a daughter, and I did not know what I would do without her."
He found his girlfriend still standing near their seats, seemingly frozen in fear. He grabbed her arm and pulled her down when the gunman started firing again. When there was a break in the fire, they sprinted out. Both were unharmed.
"He keeps hearing the cries and the screams, he said, from men, women and children and tripping over people going out," she said.

Does she not realize that some people were in a really bad seat and unfortunately running may not have saved them? Or that they had families, children, etc. I can't believe someone who was actually there can be so insensitive.
I wish someone, anyone, who was in the first 3-4 rows would just make an attempt at a description of the man who took the phone call. Even if only to say they don't remember much about him because nothing stood out. In all the witness interviews not one of the reporters even asked! Every one of them only asks for a description from the point where you can't identify the shooter!!edit on 27-7-2012 by IamMe14 because: (no reason given)

She asked a damn good question, too bad he couldn't answer. I don't give much weight to the height discrepancy. I'm exactly 6' and even in good lighting people will guess my height anywhere from 5'10 to 6'2. Some people are just really bad at guessing that. So add the dark room, the SWAT gear and other factors it would be easy to mistake height.
It seems that Corbin does feel there were two different people involved. He's very lucky too, 2nd row 4th seat from the right seems like he was in incredible danger as that's where the shooter had the best angle of.
Corbin says one thing that caught my attention, he states 10 min later the movie shut off and he didn't know where the gunman was. The police audio states it was an officer who was in the theater who called for the movie to be shut off. So was corbin in there 10 min later while the officer was in there?? That would mean Corbin stayed for about 8 minutes in there with no shooting going on. That's a long time since the best estimate is the shooting was about 60-90 seconds. Why would he stay in there so long? Odd.
