xxmedium: NY Post reporting 12 dead, 50 injured with one suspect in custody being treated for shrapnel wounds.


It's the New York Post, take that story with a huge grain of salt.

Endive Wombat: retarded: Don't bother with the freepers, I just browsed over there and it's as disgusting as ever.

huh?


FreeRepublic.com...they call themselves Freepers; they're wingnut retards.

Somewhat useful for keeping a finger on the pulse of that particular rotting portion of the body politic.

Boston Scanner: A Penske truck tried to enter the area saying it was delivering medical supplies. The truck was turned away and denied entrance. They are trying to find the truck at this time.

Cell phone Service is being shut down in the city.

They haven't yet awakened Obama to tell him, so look for the Bush-blame later in the day.

Probably shut down, to prevent remote detonation by phone if there are additional devices using that method.

/just checked Google News, and that appears to be the case

from AP

A law enforcement official says cellphone service has been shut down in the Boston area to prevent any potential remote detonations of explosives.

Check out the 5-0 radio app if you're using win 8.  You can get the Boston police scanner.  Fascinating.  They are checking all suspicious packages.

And this is where we hear about the 30 other jets in the air, attacks on AF1, and 100 other unsubstantiated reports that will spawn new Truthers and send conspiracy sites to all time highs for visits.

Communist_Manifesto: I'm honestly surprised things like this don't happen in the US more often. We are a very large nation with a ton of enemies both internal and external. Add in the fact that if you want to detonate a bomb somewhere there isn't a whole lot stopping you from acquiring the materials and doing it. Hopefully this is the typical american loner/psycho/mass-murderer and not a prequel to some sort of large sustained terror campaign funded/coordinated by some sort of radical group in our biggest cities.


I'm not really surprised it doesn't happen more often. For all of our American bluster, most of us would rather hash things out with angry words on a message board than actually really for real initiate violence against each other. Even the herpiest and derpiest among us recognize that real freedom is calling someone an asshole, them calling you a dickhead, and then going home and having dinner with the wife and kids.

Police were on the lookout for a Penske truck, and have now surrounded an abandoned one in Roxbury.

The head of police said on air just a little bit ago they were doing just that.

I'm leaning more towards international terrorism, but loony anti-government guys are definitely in play.

Any truth to the reports that they have a suspect in custody that is a Saudi national?  Or is this one of these false reports that come out in the panic of a breaking news story that Conspiracy Theorists will use to turn into "evidence" of a cover up?

They say that, but mine still works. Just to be sure, I'm checking every number.

Earlier on the TV feed, Wolf said something along the lines of:
"There was a primary and secondary device that exploded.  Police may have found a thirdidar...thir...another possible device nearby."

Carth: Sid_6.7: Carth: The fact it happened on Tax Day makes me think extremist anti-government but there hasn't been any news.

Or it's a coincidence, because the marathon was today.

It could have just been a coincidence. NPR is saying there was no chatter or talks of a potential attack in intelligence channels.


Chee-ya. Because if anyone knows what's happening on terrorist chatter channels it's NPR. Derp.
You know what NPR was playing while this happened?
A show about whether or not Pablo Neruda's body should be exhumed.
The mind boggles.

For those Farkers that know that I'm in Boston, I'm fine. I was at home a mile away from the bombing scene at the time. My roommate and one of my housemates and his friend (who ran the marathon) were there when the explosions happened, but they're all OK.

This is really f*cked up...

Humans suck..... to  general.

Pieces of shiat who intentionally target innocent people suck, whatever point they are trying to make is instantly lost.  How about naming names, giving reasons & taking direct action? you know, show some honor, these kinds of people are the greatest cowards, COWARDS!

we CAN have nice things & will continue to do so & cherish every moment.

TV's Vinnie: Drew: Also folks - be aware that at this stage in the news cycle pretty much no one knows anything, and 90% of everything's gonna be issued a correction later by MSM.  That said it still helps to know what's going on now

And by "a correction later by MSM", you mean "fictional sack of horse sh*t pulled out of some White House Press Director's arse.".


Right, because everything the White House ever says, 100% of it, is a total lie. Of course.

Go back to watching Alex Jones.

One of my best friends is the doctor in charge of the medical tent at the finish line. He checked in OK. Lots of fractures and limbs he was dealing with.

It seems to be false. So I'm sure we'll get a Newtown style conspiracy coverup later this week, yes.

NYPost is the only source reporting it that I can see. They are also the only source reporting 12 dead. Unless there is confirmation from other sites I wouldn't believe anything they report right now.

It may just be because the Boston Marathon is a huge event with a large crowd, which equals more casualties.
