Yeah, I'm puzzled about the whole thing. There are normally site staff on hand at these sorts of events, too, people who normally work at the arena, stadium or what have you. So there should have been several people around who would know things like alternate exit routes, etc. Were they not there? Was no one in the security detail or on Romney's staff briefed about any kind of emergency procedures (at least those involving anyone other than just Romney)? If they had no procedures in place for dealing with people that close to the stage wanting to, you know, move, they shouldn't have been allowed to stand there in the first place. Someone really dropped the ball.
