    Unfortunately...they seem to have become used to this stuff, news cameras are showing them crowding up at barricades to watch and take pictures and talk on their cell phones. One guy they just showed is standing there with baseball cap on backwards, sunglasses on, and chomping on gum while he watches!

    I'm guessing it is probably someone's lunch or something, but better to be safe than sorry. It's horrible it's gotten to this though.
