    I bet at least one held pressure on a bleeder.

    I'm not sure there is there is any protection from this type of thing.

    AUSTAN GOOLSBEE: I think the world vests too much power, certainly in the president, probably in Washington in general for its influence on the economy, because most all of the economy has nothing to do with the government.

    Still makes no sense as far as numbers go, since just as many people would run the other direction, and many would run toward it, in order to either help or gawk; it seems it would be a wash as far as numbers of people in a given area.

    I didn't see all the films, but the ones I did see didn't indicate enough to make that determination, and many of the films show the police trying to drive gawkers away from the first bomb as well as the second, especially since the second went off too soon after the first to make that matter as a tactic, at least from the vids I've seen; the surprise and shock made people stop in their tracks for the most part, followed by just as many people running toward the blasts as away.

    My understanding from two of the doctors present was that these were not "gawkers" but people trying to help, to see if they could offer assistance in any way. They had to be turned back because there was little they could do.

    Some obviously were, from the vids I've seen; also some were looters as well.

    Yes, really, and I agree, but I would go with shotguns fired into their asses than with whipping them.

    I am anti capital punishment, but can see your sentiment.
