Okay, not only was this poor victim running from people armed with handguns, but also he may have noticed that these people had been tailing him all the way from his apartment building. They had, for instance, taken the same bus as he, to get to the train station.
When I went this morning to see my psychoanalyst, I had to decide whether or not to bring my sweater with me. I was afraid that, if I did bring my sweater, I would be chased by plainclothes police officers, held down, and shot multiple times in the head. Luckily, although I did bring and wear my sweater, I did not get chased or killed.
