You are so smart, you'd probably run...

... since you think the cops are somehow complacent in the whole thing.

Innocent people run from the cops all the time... it is just what their instincts tell them to do.

My guess about the guy in the woods? He heard the shots, threw on some clothes and made his way to the school to see WTF was going on. Cop sees him, tells him to halt - his instincts take over and he bolts. They grab him, cuff him, question him, and let him go.

I don't watch many movies - so I don't really know what you think happened.
