    I agree that it makes very little sense. This is just such a unique and horrifying situation, that it's hard to just completely rake this guy through the coals. I get it, I just can't make such claims about him being a "real father" and all that.

    this is what good parents did:

    "If we went to the theater, we might be dead. I even got mad at my husband that we couldn't find a babysitter. But I thank God that we're here today to give my daughters hugs and kisses."

    I knew that was coming, you predictable nitwit. I have three nieces who I love like they're my own daughters. Or, at least, very close to it. I care more about those girls than anything, but I'm honest with myself. I would like to be able to say with 100% confidence what I would do, but that wouldn't be based on anything but my own love for them and my ideal mind. I just can't find the self-righteousness in me to condemn a guy who was in a horrific situation that I will most likely never been in. If his girlfriend leaves him, and the kids don't forgive, I think that's perfectly fine. It's his family and they were there. It's just so easy for a hyper-emotional woman from Tustin on a message board to comment on what it means to be a "real father" when faced with the most imminent and terrifying danger of his life.

    Criticizing them for taking the kids to the movie in the first place is fair game, I think.

    Fuck you, Tommy.

    I will stand by my initial idea that a real father wouldn't leave their infant lying on the floor of a theater that is being riddled by bullets, immersed in panic, and then DRIVE away from his baby, toddler, and fiancÚ.

    I support this. Of course, none of us have been in that situation, so we certainly don't know what we'd do. I have no kids, but I can tell you with 100% certainty that I would not have left my niece or my nephews on the ground of a chaotic theater that was being simultaneously shot up and stampeded by panicked, bloody & dying people. The fact that he drove away tells you about everything you need to know about this guy. And, well, seeing his picture; smoke meth much?

    Adding on from the above discussion, not going to take sides, but I've got a weird imagination. I've actually spent time today replaying that scene in my mind, how I would have felt being in that position (last thought was 30 minutes ago while eating 2 double doubles protein style and listening to NPR). I went through the emotions of being there with my wife. I imagined that we were not fast enough to get out and I throwing my wife on the floor of my seats and throwing myself on top of her. I felt like crying and my knees were shaking uncontrollably, but if I figured if it came down to that, that was going to be my move. I'd love to say I would have tried to run towards the guy and tried to take him down or some other heroic act, but that's not the first thing that came to my mind. My only thought was to make sure my wife would not be harmed.

    Jesus, none of you know how the fuck you would act in that scenario. My apartment building caught on fire last year and I shoved an old guy down the stairs out of my way so I could save myself in my own heightened state of panic. It wasn't pretty and it wasn't heroic but it was simply the course of action my body decided to take.

    It's fairly obvious that the father showed at least some disgust and remorse about his actions.

    It's dumb to speculate, it happens every time there's a shooting like this and people go "Well gosh, if there had been [more/less] guns on the scene it would've gone differently. Also, I would've been able to [get out of there/kill the shooter] anyway so it's moot" but that shit never actually happens.

    As usual my feelings are best summed up by The Onion. This shit sucks, we've been through it before, and the only good possible outcome would be an actual discussion on any of the following topics: mental health, gun control, pervasive cultural acceptance and normalization of violence, media reactions to tragedies, etc. But oops, this is America, we're going to mourn, blame it on videogames and on to the next one.

    I guess what I'm saying is it's funny that the people who would have been level-headed and capable of diffusing these situations never seem to actually be there when they happen

    So is everyone ignoring the fact that the dude is a bad dad because he's bringing his four year old and infant son to a screening of a dark, violent Batman film at midnight. I mean, really? The four year old is going to be smart enough to get that there are all these killings going on on-screen, and that baby is just going to become a supervillian after being exposed to the film. Even without the abhorrent actions (and Tommy, it's one thing to say that in the heat of the moment he could run out: he had the baby in his arms and dropped it, then left) that's some shitty parenting. Mom's to blame for that as well, and for mating with such a winner twice.
