=Worse Witnesses. 

High Anxiety = FEWER correct descriptions of the criminal

Females are MORE likely to suffer high anxiety levels at a crime scene.

EVIDENCE: Loftus and Burns that anxiety reduces the accuracy of eyewitness testimony. Participants that had seen a more violent version of a film (Boy shot in face) Showed less accuracy of recall and fewer details. 

Interesting not just the events surrounding the shooting, but those up to two minutes earlier.
