Video footage of the April 4 murder-suicide has not been released to the public, but sources confirm that Detective Patricia Wilder not only was in the room as the tragedy unfolded, but that she fired a shot at Powell as Smith and the suspect tussled. The video shows Wilder’s shot missing Powell and then the magazine falling from her gun. Her firearm disabled, Wilder left the room. Powell was able to grab Smith’s gun and shoot the detective four times before killing himself.It is fairly easy to anticipate women's actions so long as you remember that they view absolutely everything through a filter of "will this endanger me in any way?" first. This is not a bad thing, it is a necessary thing, in fact, because the preservation of its females is the first and foremost concern of any species that wishes to survive. The female "flight or flight" response is the flipside of the Islamic world's honor killings and general repression of women; the object is to preserve the breeding population.
A population of genuinely fearless women is likely to go the way of those island animals with no natural predators faced with an influx of hungry seamen, rats, and ships cats. Which is to say, extinction.
However, this is also why attempts to instill male virtues into women are destined for failure. All the training in the world is not going to overcome the natural and necessary instinct to propagate the species.
