Are Mutual Funds Getting Ready to Capitulate?

Rumors are starting that a couple of mutual funds are in trouble. I can't confirm or deny at the moment.

Earlier this week I wrote about the increase in investors calls to both Vanguard and T. Rowe Price. See Investors pull $33 Billion out of Market.

When investors get scared, and they can't take it anymore, they often dump all their stocks. A form of the madness of the crowd--they sometimes do this in unison. Imagine 100,000s of investors all pushing the panice button at the same time. There are somewhere in the neighborhood of 88 million investors in the United States.
Could we be on the verge of a market capitulation?
