Boston Bomb Attack Triggered PTSD in Local Kids, Study Finds

I guess so, but what caused PTSD ? The bombing or the POLICE ? With all of the troops going door to door, looking and acting like the Gestapo, it's no wonder everyone isn't traumatized. The "storm troopers" OVERREACTING again. Hundreds, possibly thousands of "police" looking for two men. [actually one man] We just had the same situation here in Philly, they shut down Phila Community College for the rest of the day,[ this happened aprox.noon time.] and four area schools because a foolish young man pulled a gun on another student. No shooting, and the gunman was home just about the time the storm troopers searched the school. another case of OVERREACTING. People will say "better safe than sorry", BUT COM'ON
A little more than a year after the Boston Marathon bombings and the five-day manhunt that terrorized Watertown neighborhoods, the impact of the ordeal on local children and teens may have been more far-reaching than anyone suspected.
About 11 percent of kids surveyed who were at the marathon finish line suffered from post-traumatic stress disorder, or PTSD, according to research conducted within the six months after the bombings, trauma experts say.
That’s about six times higher than the PTSD rate in kids who weren’t at the site of the April 15, 2013 attack that killed three people and injured 264, according to a study published Monday in the journal Pediatrics.        
But in addition to such severe effects, researchers detected a range of other disturbing emotional and behavioral responses in kids who felt the impact of the manhunt close to home.
