Ummmm...

Are they saying the pigs are involved with this terrorist attack?

Sounds weird when reading the headline, but it sounds like they found more bombs and are detonating them.

I would assume they are detonating any bags or packages left in the area.. just to be safe.

/Probably a very smart move

Thanks for the clarification!  I was all "*tinfoil hat* THEY DID THAT ON NINE ELEVEN TOO!1"

Also, when the headline was originally posted, the parenthesis weren't there.

Cross my heart.

This is what i'm thinking as well.

I'm hoping this is so or if they did find other bombs that they were able to control those blast two either way.

Controlled explosion on Boylston St. The guardian has a decent live feed.

I wonder who will eventually take responsibility for the bombings.

BPD reporting 22 injured, 2 dead.

Damn, I had really hoped we might avoid deaths. My condolences to the families of the victims.

cman: I wonder who will eventually take responsibility for the bombings.


Wouldn't it be scarier if nobody did?

Im glad that the idiots that setthe rest of these were hairbrained enough that they didn't go off.

 A lot of folks left their bags when they ran (marathon spectating is a long day so folks usually have "stuff" with them).  So hopefully police are just blowing us stuff they can't readily identify.

If this was terrorist, I think they would have timed it for when the elite runners finnished.

Many bags and backpacks were abandoned in the chaos. EOD teams will treat each of these as a "suspect package" and, if they cannot determine the contents through other means (x-ray, remote opening, etc) will use a controlled explosive actuated device to open (and scatter) the contents of the package.

If your brown, HIDE!
 
2013-04-15 06:44:37 PM
How many? That would be useful information.
 
2013-04-15 08:00:23 PM
Poor presumption - they are going to assume grandma's purse is a bomb and likely do a controlled demo of anything suspicious.

another cultural observer: cman: I wonder who will eventually take responsibility for the bombings.

Given the timing and venue, it's reasonable to wager that there's some fringe political aspect to this. I wonder if it's occurred to the smacktards involved that if they meant to play up some faux-revolutionary theme, they're on the wrong side of the Boston Massacre.

If my brown what?
