Too soon?

The somewhat helpful—and also somewhat comical—video is via the Houston mayor's office, made with grant money from the Department of Homeland Security.

There's this bit of flip copy at the beginning: "It may just feel like another day at the office. But occasionally, life feels more like an action movie..."

An action movie? Why not a "video game?" Or a "Batman movie?"

And this: "But sometimes, bad people do bad things."

Was this video made for eight year-olds?
