Scenario: Bad guy has your wife with a knife at her throat and tells you he will slit it if you dont fire into the crowd of schoolchildren. You have no shot at attacker.
Simple wild, shoot her in a spot that will allow the bullet to reach him.... saw it on tv
Stop and think about what is going on and you may get killed. No time to think you must react fast. Get training or try to stay away from known bad areas. Go camping at a nice lake, go see a movie, whatever but stay out of bad areas and try to reduce the ideas running thru your head.
Shoot a school kid? No, I would shoot the wife........as described. What the heck it is a fantasy anyway...
