Could be that it's not terrorism at all.

For the record, the report I originally posted about the two undetonated bombs appears to be accurate.

it will be good if they did get two unexploded bombs from this bomb maker
this will be very useful in finding the responsible party

For those who don't know it... It's a holiday here in Boston. It's the day we remember Paul Revere's Ride and the Battle of Lexington and Concord. It's also Marathon Day dedicated to Sandy Hook.

Already there is so much speculation ect. about this whole thing. It's too early to tell. Think of all of the misinformation from Sandy Hook.

Right now, I am praying for my friends who were there with another family that lost thier child in this senseless act. I am praying for my friends who are first responders who were on the scene. I am praying for the families of Sandy Hook........ Who were there in memory of their loved ones.

How long.... How long must we sing this song.

I stopped working the marathon about ten years ago. I am praying for my friends who were working it today.

Dreadsox out......

terrorism is a term of art

I guess if this is just one nut case with no agenda, then it is not terrorism

The news accidentally (I assume it was accidental. No warning or even a mention of it) ran footage of a guy in a wheelchair with gruesome injuries to his legs. Horrific

I saw that, the foot was gone.

I suppose a warning is warranted.

If I was him, I could not care less about being on TV at that point

The puns and asinine baseless accusations really are sickening.

I'll spoiler this in case anyone is squeamish

 
It looked like both his legs were missing from just below the knee. His lower left leg was definitely missing, but for nearly the entire length of his tibia which was completely exposed. Really horrible. No idea how the guy was still conscious

Nothing the news does is accidental.

And thank you for spoilering whatever it was you spoilered.

There are reports on local news
 
of several people with lost limbs, some having lost both legs, one victim as young as 3
the kind of thing that tickles Mikal's funny bone apparently.

Please stay on topic. These kinds of posts are insensitive.
