My initial response to the theater shooting in Aurora was a simple desire to understand more and learn the facts surrounding it. Who, what, when, where, and why? After reading through whatever news reports I could find, my tactical mind began considering the situation and the environment. I was going through the process of what’s known as “mental rehearsals”.
Essentially, mental rehearsals are exactly what they sound like: rehearsing potential actions to be taken ‘in the event of’. What would I have done were I faced with the same dire situation of a heavily armed active shooter firing indiscriminately into crowds of people in a dark, smokey theater?
