Default Explosions at Boston Marathon


Bear in mind this is breaking news still in development, but holy fuck.

Quote:
Multiple outlets and law enforcement officials are reporting what a horrific looking scene makes clear: The headquarters at the Boston Marathon have been locked down after two explosions were reported near the downtown finish line mid-Monday afternoon, near the Boston Library. Boston police confirmed that there were two explosions — and doctors were told to expect casualties — but no one was saying who or what might be responsible. "There were two booms heard from near the finish line inside the Fairmont Copley Plaza Hotel," reports the AP. Here are a couple of many images flowing in from social media current scene there:
The article contains some very graphic images. Blood and the like.

The Boston marathon is run each year on Patriot's Day. The city basically gets shut down for it and a LOT of people participate. Schools and workplaces are closed for the day so people can watch this thing go... and then this happens.

Who the fuck bombs a marathon and why?

To save on the thread surgery later, I'll just move my stuff up here.

This just came across my news thing a little bit ago.

Quote:
The headquarters of the Boston Marathon is on lockdown following two explosions near the finish line, Reuters reports.

The blasts occurred just before 3:00 p.m., according to MyFoxBoston.
Seems two explosions erupted from the finish line around 3:00pm their time. Stragglers in the race have been diverted and paramedics are still on clean-up. It looks pretty bloody from the pictures.

EDIT: This doesn't bode well:

Oh jeez, AP reporter on TV says Newtown families were in the VIP section right by the explosion. No injury reports, she's locked down w/ one
7:29 PM - 15 Apr 13
The 26th Mile of the Marathon was to be dedicated to the children of the Newtown shooting.

I'm hearing reports of a possable third device found, and more evacuations... and possable deaths as well.

EDIT: From what I'm hearing on the radio... 2 dead, 22 injured. And police did find a third bomb, and removed it in a controlled detonation.

its not about the Marathon, is about a public day related to goverment where you can know for fact where a lot of people will be at any certain given time of the day. In harsh words... easy pickens for a domestic attack.

Now, i just try to force myself to see the least horrific possibility, like an accident or maybe a gas line rupture. Nothing with malice, nothing with intent and planning... as far as i know (and would like to hope) this is very much a possibility. Call it 1% but its there.... until it isn't anymore

However, right now is the time to firmly shove your foot to the ground and look around before taking a step... cause people are going to freak out at any other outcome. ANY thing beyond a stupid accident is going to cause major uphoar...

Seriously, i'm counting the days right now untill they relate this somehow to the Tea Revolution, or the boston tea party or whatever the fuck they can... just you wait.

It is hard to even imagine what the hell is going on on people´s mind behind stuff like this right now....... i can only send my best throughts to the people injuried and hope the first panic wave passes so we can see what this truly is.

I'm waiting for the conspiracy theorists to work out that this is some NRA plot to eliminate the Newtown families because they continue to be vocal proponents of gun control as well as scare the average American citizen into a terrorism induced gun buying frenzy.

It's only a matter of time.

from what im reading, the explosions took place in that "spot" where the winners would have already crossed the finnished line, which happens in very small groups of 3-5 people... but right in time for the "second wave' of runners to come by, which are usually larger groups of people together.

I'm... kind of shocked to hear about this. So much for traveling to Boston this week.

There was also something crazy I thought about that I don't know if I should state. I'm going to anyway. I met some crazy guy some time before I moved.(Still live in Mass, just a different town) Said he was going to do something big in Boston, but didn't state when. I never got his name, but he had some big crazy grudge against the government. He was convinced he was unemployable since he would... and I quote, "Tear shit apart." Like he could actually say something that would rip people's minds apart instead of just sounding like a cospiracist. While I'm not totally convinced it was him since he stated it was just minor anarchy he wanted to commit, it makes me paranoid to think he may have been involved. Guess I won't know until the perpetrator is found.

I think the first thing to not do is start speculating on who did this and why until people with the means to find out these things give us more information. Like, I know we're not doing any harm here pointing fingers at the NRA or the Tea Party, but I'm worried for the safety of some of my friends, not because any of them were at the marathon (I hope), but because "retaliatory" attacks against The Terrors could very likely happen as a result of people naming them as potential culprits. Plus it's just kind of a gross thing to do, anyway. Gross and human, like pooping, but still.

In any case, I'm hoping the people in the hospital pull through and I'm hoping the justice system pulls through in getting us at least some answers.
