Father Abandons Family In Theatre During Colorado Shooting

Allow me to start with this: I have never been in a situation of the magnitude of the recent mass shooting in Aurora, Colorado.  I can not say what I would do in a similar situation, but I can say this:  If I would have run out of the theatre to save myself, and left Shannon inside the theatre to fend for herself, I would NOT go on national television and tell the world.

With that being said, this video is of the interview with the   — ahem —  “gentleman” and his ‘baby momma’, who were both in the theatre in Aurora on the night of the shooting, along with their infant child and her 4-year-old.

When the shooting broke out, the “gentleman”, who was holding the infant, thought to himself that he was being a larger target (not his words, but along those lines), so he put the infant down and ran away. Away. From his girlfriend and the babies.  Out the door.  To his car.  And then?  He drove away.  From his ‘family’.

He didn’t see her again until he got to the hospital.  Once he got there, he proposed to her, and she accepted.

Oh, did I mention that she was suffering from shrapnel wounds?

And then he goes on national television and gets his 15 seconds (unaware that many people in the nation will think him a coward).

What are your thoughts?  If you were his girlfriend, would you have accepted his proposal for marriage?  I spoke to some of the ladies in this building, and of the 6 that I spoke with, NONE of them would have accepted; citing “lack of dependability” as their reason.

Here’s the video from CNN
