I can understand that when faced with that terrible situation, you can’t know exactly how you will react, however- He effing drove off. Not only did he drop his child, he got to his car and drove away.  He is not a man. He is a sorry excuse.

Appalling. I understand that he was disoriented but that’s just sad.

I read this earlier and was mortified.

I know he was scared for his life, but…. it’s so hard to hear the mom describing how she reached for her children, while he was running away.

Such a sad situation and obviously if it weren’t for the crazy gunman there wouldn’t of been anything that happened to react to…but I’ve gotta say, why the heck did they have their 4 month old and 4 year old at the midnight showing of Dark Knight Rises? So the fact that the man continued to use poor judgement when the shooting happened isn’t too shocking.

 

Just feel so badly for everyone in that theater or who had friends and family there…I was at a midnight showing of the movie too, and saw it again last night with my husband after I knew about the shooting, and during the scenes in the movie where there is like mass chaos and people being shot, just kept thinking about the poor people who had a scene like that break out in their theater, and not just on the screen. No real words for how terrifying that would be. Although lots of people I know are nowing saying they’re scared to go see it, which seems pretty silly to me.

Wow. I can understand that he was scared for his life, but I guess I always assumed that you would protect your child first, even if that is a four month old baby who is crying.

I don’t think anyone should be judging this man.  It’s easy to say what you would or wouldn’t do when you’re not in that situation.  I imagine the guy feels plenty enough guilty already.

@Vidya:  Agree. I don’t presume to know any person has their wits about them during a crisis. In the reporter’s piece, he is quoted as asking something to the effect of “what kind of man does that,” when he thinks of leaving his family behind. The real tragedy would be if he didn’t learn from his mistake. He feels badly about it. It’s going to suck even more for him to google himself, and see a bunch of people bashing him as a horrible excuse as a parent, rather than rejoicing that he and his family made it out alive.
