Then again, I don't really know the environment in which the shooting took place so I could be totally off base.
but how many times does something out of the ordinary happen that is a prank or what not? do you really react every time?
a few weeks ago, I was at my sons hebrew school - it was a warmish day, and this arab woman, covered head to toe with a small opening for her eyes, wearing ahavy coat, is dropped off by a car in front of the school. she gets out of the car, with two heavy shoping bags, and starts to walk up to the school. i had my son lie down next to a heavy wall and away from the window, and I ran to tell the cop who guards the entrace that I thought she should check why this woman was here. she was sort of amused that I was concerned. it turns out the woman was part of a cross cultural activity. but, very frankly, she was way out of place, and could have been a threat. my instict was to blow her head off.
anyway, my point being, that we are not used to reacting with violence when soemthing threatening happens around us.
