Garbarino Incident is International Story

Since we were the first to carry this story after KTBS, we are pretty visible for people searching this on Google. In addition to hundreds of hits and page views from all over the United States, just in the last 16 hours (since midnight) we have had hits from a number of foreign countries. It is not unusual to have some international hits on the blog, but to have this number who all were searching this particular subject on Google is pretty striking. There are many more over the last two days.
There are 23 videos posted on YouTube relating to the incident with over 250,000 views. I didn't check Google Video or MySpace, but I imagine they are there too.
We are putting up this video of the ABC News coverage of the incident. At the present time, it has more comments than any other YouTube video in the news & politics section.
