He says her injuries are not severe. Willis says security has been stepped up, though he’s not expecting a repeat bombing.Willis says by strict definition, this is NOT considered an act of terrorism, so there’ll be no federal involvement in the case.Willis says Harvey had been riding downhill fast when she hit the trip wire so he thinks a walker would’ve been more badly hurt.
