His cowardly act did nothing more than strengthen others and their resolve. Timothy McVeigh and Terry Nichols scouted numerous sites to bomb. They traveled to Omaha, Dallas, and Phoenix [FBI01]. McVeigh stated that had he known there was a kindergarten inside the federal building he may have reconsidered the target. The Phoenix building that was scouted was the Federal Bankruptcy Court downtown. At the time this was the largest federal building in Phoenix. Due to the OKC Bombing the plans for the Sandra Day O'Connor Federal Courthouse were designed with precautions. Hopefully none of the designs will ever be needed.

    The ability to access any university’s resources through Course Hero proved invaluable in my case. I was behind on Tulane coursework and actually used UCLA’s materials to help me move forward and get everything together on time.
