Damn...
 
2013-04-15 04:10:39 PM
Sadface
 
2013-04-15 04:10:53 PM
Four minutes ago the AP said 2 dead.
 
2013-04-15 04:11:13 PM
Is that a typo? The news is still saying 2 dead.
 
2013-04-15 04:11:15 PM
I'm hearing only 2 killed subby... 23 injured
 
2013-04-15 04:11:38 PM
Sadface, this is going to hurt much wider too...
 
2013-04-15 04:11:39 PM

Well, it is the NYPost.
 
2013-04-15 04:11:58 PM
im watching the news and reading about it online, no one has said the number twelve yet

Ladies and gentlemen

If this is a foreign terrorist act, we must unite.

Obama is our President. If this is the work of foreign terrorists we need to get behind and support him to go kick some ass.

NBC, quoting Boston Police, says 2 dead, 24 injured.

I just.... goddamnit....

I'm leery about the NYP because it's a rag, but...

"There were two bombs that exploded near the finish line in today's Boston Marathon," The Boston Marathon's official Facebook page read. "We are working with law enforcement to understand what exactly has happened."


According to reports, authorities in Boston found a third explosive device that had not gone off and police were going to perform a controlled explosion. The airspace above the city was ordered cleared as well.

Jesus. Confirmed to be terrorism. I thought it was a really bad gas main explosion or something, but... actual bombs planted by an actual madman.
 
2013-04-15 04:13:18 PM
Let's let the police finish their work, make sure it's really all clear first.  If it's anything like London or Madrid there are a few more bombs out there.
 
2013-04-15 04:13:31 PM
Iraq press saying, "Nothing to see here".
 
2013-04-15 04:13:34 PM
We should ban oxygen; because, without oxygen, things can't explode.

/ am i doing it right? is this thing on?
 
2013-04-15 04:13:38 PM
Amazingly CNN said something to the effect that in the immediate rush to report news, reports may not be entirely accurate.

I like 2 better than 12.  But who knows.

Will he blame Bush?
 
2013-04-15 04:13:47 PM
i feel for anyone who got injured in these explosions, but for some reason (probably because i'm evil) i can't help but marvel at how quickly news travels in this country today and how glued people are to this incident.

The only thing that could stop a bad guy with a bomb is a good guy with a bomb.

No, he wont.

And to insinuate that is pretty low.

Expect to see DHS and TSA everywhere now.
 
2013-04-15 04:15:18 PM
Clearly, this demonstrates the urgent need to ban high explosives from our streets. When any random stranger could be walking around with a brick of C4 it...

Oh, wait, nevermind.

"Relatives of the victims of December's school massacred in Newtown, Conn. were among those attending the race finish at a VIP area. It was not known of any of the relatives were among the casualties.  "

Those poor farking bastards.  Jesus...
 
2013-04-15 04:15:27 PM
We're just running around in circles here.  And then some explosions happened.
 
2013-04-15 04:15:28 PM
23 reported injured now, according to BBC
 
2013-04-15 04:15:45 PM

Hold on ; I got this!


THANKS OBAMA!!!
 
2013-04-15 04:16:33 PM
This means we need emergency legislation to ban assault rifles!
 
2013-04-15 04:17:08 PM
I hope that's just ketchup on the sidewalk in that pic, where a hot dog vendor got pushed over.

I did just notice a tone change in the coverage, all the livefeeds are now hypothesizing on who and what kind of people where in the blast radius.  I few examples given were: college age kids, families with small children, tourists, families of runners.  I genuinely detest heart-string pulling during a catastrophe.
 
2013-04-15 04:17:33 PM
Can't do anything from here, but I hope that everyone injured is okay.
 
2013-04-15 04:18:19 PM
Very sad.

Also very sad that these things bring out the gun nuts trying to sound clever with the "we should just ban explosives lololol i trol u" garbage. Have some farking respect.
 
2013-04-15 04:19:07 PM
BBC reports 2 dead.

Don't you know that bush is history's greatest criminal.

I mean, come on! You see a cute girl at a bar; but when you get her home, and she looks like she's got Don King's head in a leg lock.
 
2013-04-15 04:20:50 PM
lets see.. outright ban on explosives.. a handful.

not outright ban on guns... story every week.

it's not that i'm good with statistics persay, but you sure as hell aren't, either.

Holy cow. That is some straight-up Book of Job shiat right there. I laughed at the absurd coincidence....and then I cried a little.

I aint encouraging blind support.

Hell, I dont even like the damn guy.

However, he is our leader, like it or not. If we need to go to war in response then we need to support him in such an endeavor.
 
2013-04-15 04:22:13 PM
Guess the sarcasm tag was broken....

Seriously, I'm all for uniting.
(Not sarcasm)

No. He is our executive. We do not have a leader in the United States.
 
2013-04-15 04:23:04 PM
Here's hoping that the 2 dead are 2 people who planted the bombs.

Im watching three tvs channels and on four sites, and I havent seen anything else saying 12, I dont think thats right at the moment.

This is one of those times when I think I'm going to be better off NOT getting my news from FARK.
 
2013-04-15 04:23:31 PM
If the perpetrators came from another country, light 'em up. Now.
