The City of Houston has released Run, Hide, Fight, a video designed to help people survive a mass shooting in a public place. According to CBS News, the $200,000 production was issued early due to the Aurora theater shooting, hitting YouTube days before this weekend's Sikh temple slayings. It's a terrifying sign of the times, but would it actually help someone get out alive? Decide for yourself: Watch the video, followed by the CBS report.
