Sgt. Graham Dunne from the Aurora Police Department teaches a class that helps people learn what to do in dangerous situations. He gave some important tips to 9news.com.
I include one of the tips:
If the predator has a gun and you are not under his control, always run!
Police officers only make 4 of 10 shots when they are in range of 3-9 feet. This is due to stress. The predator will only hit you (a running target) 4 in 100 times. And even then, it most likely will not be a vital organ. Run! Nine out of 10 people who are shot live.
I think many people freeze up out of fear when involved in threatening situations. Fear causes people to act irrationally. You may have trouble making yourself run away from a gun bearing predator who may shoot at you. However, after reading those statistics, I agree with the recommendation to run away if you can.
If the predator will shoot you just because you ran away, think what the predator would do if you let him capture you.
