2 bombs that were set next to a building blew up. Reporting that it was 2 packages near each other.

Heard they just found another package and the police detonated it. They NY Post is also reporting several deaths.

This had to be terrorism.

peacepipe 04-15-2013 01:13 PM

2 dead,23 injured.

It's definitely terrorism, but lets not jump to conclusions about who the terrorists might be.

Two confirmed dead so far.

**** like this, actually makes me think of how bad ass the CIA actually is. There are so many mother****ers out there that we must be stopping a ton of them.

Crushaholic 04-15-2013 01:58 PM

Someone, on Facebook, brought up the timing issue. We are days away from anniversaries of Columbine and Oklahoma City. Is this just a coincidence?

SonOfLe-loLang 04-15-2013 01:59 PM

****ing humans. What a world. Now we have to worry about having marathons? What's next

Kaylore 04-15-2013 01:59 PM

This is terrible.

Boobs McGee 04-15-2013 02:01 PM

****ing sad, man. Thoughts and prayers to the everyone.

They started it off in honor of Sandy Hook...I don't know if there's any possible connection there or not either.

Boobs McGee 04-15-2013 02:03 PM

Also, let's hope there aren't MORE bombs set to detonate. The video showing that explosion didn't look like it was massive, which makes me wonder...if it was a terrorist act, wouldn't it have been on a more grand scale? Regardless, it's horrible, and hopefully those are the only ones that go off :(

Here's an excerpt from ESPN : "BOSTON -- The Boston Marathon is honoring the victims of the Newtown, Conn., shooting with a special mile marker in Monday's race.

Boston Athletic Association president Joanne Flaminio said there was "special significance" to the fact that the race is 26.2 miles long and 26 people died at Sandy Hook Elementary school.

Laura Nowacki, a spokeswoman for the Newtown Strong Fund, says the runners will hit Heartbreak Hill knowing it's nothing like the pain felt by the runners back home. She says, "It's just running, but we want our steps to count."

The mile marker that will hang at the end of the 26th mile will feature the city seal surrounded by 26 stars, one for each victim.

There also will be 26 seconds of silence at the start before the race."

if this is domestic terrorism then probably not.

enjolras 04-15-2013 02:16 PM

It's tax day.. If I was fishing around for a coincidence to speculate about, it would be that.

elsid13 04-15-2013 02:20 PM

This ****ed up. I know that street and have family in the city today. All are safe thank God, but one was close enough to hear the explosions and see the smoke as he left Fenway.

peacepipe 04-15-2013 02:24 PM

Apparently there was another bomb at the JFK library. So far it's unclear if related.

Was just about to leave the house with my son for his first B's game when the news broke. They already cancelled all events in Boston for the rest of the day/night. Bridges are shut down into the city. They think there might be more bombs out there. This is really messed up.

Irish Stout 04-15-2013 02:27 PM

A world where we live in fear of going to school and participating in athletic events...

I am deeply saddened by this.
