RIP...

Both of my friends got stress fractures with in the past few weeks so they didn't end up running. Though I am not sure if my cousin was at the finish watching his friends run...

Yikes. I dont have a weak stomach but this is horrific. I saw an image of a guy in a wheelchair with is leg severed and literally open like a flower below the knee. Absolutely heart breaking. Almost in tears. Really freaks me out

Man, spin up seal team six. Thanks to all the ems, Leo's, hospital staff, and FBI working so hard at the moment. The pics and videos are tough to see.

We need to find those responsible, sentence them, and ask them politely "why?" We need to understand and give them a chance to communicate before we put them away indefinitely.
Firing squad. They aren't worth our tax money.

Seems to currently be 3 dead, like 130 injured, 8 in critical condition (just saw on Fox).

It also seems it might be an organization (more than one person involved) attack. 4 bombs located in different areas, would be hard for one person to pull that off.

There's no proof it's foreign yet. The fact it happened in Boston, on Tax day makes me wonder.

Always sad to hear of innocent people die in this manner, the biggest terrorists are the CIA & FBI.

So you would expect someone with a rifle as an avatar to not be able to read your mind?

Of course there is a possibility of it being domestic terrorism. A very good possibility. I just thought you were proposing something that wasn't already mentioned by every media source and other posters in this thread.

My question stemmed from you saying that it was "in Boston on Tax Day". Did you mean that it was someone pissed about paying taxes, that dislikes people from Boston? Do you think this would have happened on tax day if the Boston 26.2 wasn't on the same day?

I wonder why, if someone wanted to really terrorize people with death and carnage, why they wouldn't have set off the explosions before the race when there were thousands of densely populated runners and spectators in a large area for a good amount of time. No disrespect to the recently departed or the very large group of injured, but given what i've seen from, for lack of a better word; professional terrorists, this seems to be somewhat amateurish.

I also wonder what my avatar has to do with anything? Ignorance and assumptions go hand in hand.

Bottom line is any individual on this planet wants to get married, have kids and provide for his family
When you have millions of people in the Arab countries that don't see these options, because of their corrupt governments being too concerned with furthering their own wealth, than taking care of their citizens

It's easy to mislead them
And that's what the asshole fundamentalists feed on
They prey on the one that have no hope
And offer them the after life
So to some who has no hope in this world
They figure ok I go and blow myself up
And I get to heaven?

It's sad, and stupid as well
Because no god, and no religion should accept the taking if human life
I don't care if you're Christian, Jewish, Muslim, or atheist
A life is a life

so at this moment at 10pm, it doesn't look likely that Saudi national is a prime suspect. He is cooperative and is talking, looks more like racial profiling. sucks for him, hopefully he gets out without having his name destroyed in the press like Richard Jewel.


But they are looking for a foreign African man, decked out in black with a pair of backpacks, trying to get into a restricted area 10 mins before the bomb went off. He was denied access, pulled his hood up and disappeared...

We don't always agree but i agreed with everything in your post that i didn't quote.

This was my thought process when i heard the news of two explosions happening near the finish line a few seconds from each other.

-- I wonder what went wrong? Did an O2 tank explode somehow and then set off another one?

After i heard there was a 3rd device that was found i pictured some disgruntled American, much like Timothy McVeigh. So take comfort in knowing that not all americans think that every bomb in america was set off by an Arab.
