OMG the guy missing most of his lower leg aside from the bone. Holy fark.

I told you. The wheel chair guy?

Everyone says that. *Shivers*

That poor man. Horrifying.

Yikes. And I thought the Kevin Ware injury was nasty.


No shiat... Those picks make Ware look like a flesh wound.

jakomo002: MrHappyRotter: STOP JUMPING TO CONCLUSIONS BEFORE WE HAVE ALL THE FACTS

But the media needs to stoke fear and confusion first by breathlessly reporting BREAKING NEWS when it's really nothing of the sort. They're desperate to be first to report something, so they'll report anything and everything and then issue corrections later.

Hate to say it, but the US media, in instances like this, does 50% of the terrorists' jobs for them, by promoting fear, disgust and total conjecture at whomever did this, ratcheting up the attention, which is EXACTLY what those farks want.

Not to mention wall-to-wall video every 2 minutes.

CNN: "We have new video in that shows the explosion again from a different angle, but beware, this might be disturbing and very frightening."
Terrorists: "Hooray!"


The media only reflect what people want to watch. Don't like breathless speculative saturation coverage of tragedy? Change the channel when it comes on. Do not visit internet sites discussing it. I'm sure the Travel Channel is running a nice "someone living an extravagant lifestyle traveling abroad on our dime" show about now.

Yikes.

Seriously? You thought a friggin' rickroll was a good idea here? Now? Are you stupid, or merely just an asshole?

A rickroll is way classier than posting some disgusting video of a severely injured (or dead) human being.


No shiat.  Homeboy clicked for horrific images of bombing victims, no pity.

FLMountainMan: bugontherug: Unf*cking real. How far up your ass does your head have to be to imagine CNN has a "liberal bias?"

Not very.  I think it's pretty obvious.  Not necessarily a bad thing, most effective journalism is "liberal" or "progressive" by its very nature.  Of course, CNN is a terrible media outlet, but you get the point.


That must be why Wolf's immediate reaction to these explosions is to generate and broadcast pre-fab GOP talking points.

CNN's bias is conservative, and always has been.
 
2013-04-15 06:30:07 PM
Twitter is trending with insane speculation. Pictures allegedly of someone in custody... A shadowy person on the roof right before the explosion.

With as many cell phones that were actively capturing the events before and after the explosion... It seems promising that we will be able to sort fact from fiction eventually.

Research has shown that those who watch fox tend to watch it to the exclusion of all other sources, while those who watch other news channels tend to view multiple sources for their news. Combined with fox rarely correcting their mistakes and errors, this makes Fox News viewers some of the most misinformed viewers in the nation.

dukeblue219: If the government was behind it, why would they deploy extra security? To stop themselves?


To try to reduce the actual injuries and deaths? To paint themselves in a good light ('See, we were there to help...")

If the government wasn't behind it, but knew about it ahead of time, why wouldn't they tell everyone to be on alert?

To avoid a panic? To stop people from not coming to one of the biggest, most famous events held in Boston?

In fact, most conspiracy theorists would argue that the government goes out of its way to scare people over minor threats.

Sure- whip up fear and panic over... nothing. Even Shakespeare knew it:
"It is a tale Told by an idiot,
full of sound and fury
Signifying nothing."

But that doesn't mean they would actually tell the public (thereby starting a panic riot) for a Real event. For an example (Yes, I know it's fictional), see the movie Jaws- there WAS a shark, but they didn't want to drive away tourists, so they lied. Similarly, Boston officials may have had a credible threat, but chose to not mention it so as to protect their marathon tourism.

Or, maybe those are just common sights at big public events and you're a moron?

I've never seen bomb sniffing dog at the finish line before.
I've never seen the National Guard lining the event route before.

Please don't get me wrong- I don't actually think this is what happened. I'm just saying it's not completely beyond the realm of possibility like some people think.

2013-04-15 06:37:26 PM

justtray: No way only two dead. Go watch the video of the first explosion. At least a half dozen people are within the kill zone of that blast alone. Likely more.

And you know what they say about unconfirmed reports, like stereotypes, they're often correct.

NBC confirmed a suspect is under guard. Police report swollen eyes, broken leg, baton bruises likely do to proximity of the blast.


1)  Two died already, but some of those transported may not make it.  So, that may not be the end of it just yet.
2)  NBC's "confirmation" was refuted by the Boston PD Commissioner. "Those reports are not true, there is no suspect in custody.":   http://livewire.talkingpointsmemo.com/entry/boston-police-commissione r -there-is-no-suspect-in

RFK: The Mindless Menace of Violence

This is a time of shame and sorrow. It is not a day for politics. I have saved this one opportunity, my only event of today, to speak briefly to you about the mindless menace of violence in America which again stains our land and every one of our lives.

It is not the concern of any one race. The victims of the violence are black and white, rich and poor, young and old, famous and unknown. They are, most important of all, human beings whom other human beings loved and needed. No one - no matter where he lives or what he does - can be certain who will suffer from some senseless act of bloodshed. And yet it goes on and on and on in this country of ours.

Why? What has violence ever accomplished? What has it ever created? No martyr's cause has ever been stilled by an assassin's bullet.

No wrongs have ever been righted by riots and civil disorders. A sniper is only a coward, not a hero; and an uncontrolled, uncontrollable mob is only the voice of madness, not the voice of reason.

Whenever any American's life is taken by another American unnecessarily - whether it is done in the name of the law or in the defiance of the law, by one man or a gang, in cold blood or in passion, in an attack of violence or in response to violence - whenever we tear at the fabric of the life which another man has painfully and clumsily woven for himself and his children, the whole nation is degraded.

"Among free men," said Abraham Lincoln, "there can be no successful appeal from the ballot to the bullet; and those who take such appeal are sure to lose their cause and pay the costs."

Yet we seemingly tolerate a rising level of violence that ignores our common humanity and our claims to civilization alike. We calmly accept newspaper reports of civilian slaughter in far-off lands. We glorify killing on movie and television screens and call it entertainment. We make it easy for men of all shades of sanity to acquire whatever weapons and ammunition they desire.

Too often we honor swagger and bluster and wielders of force; too often we excuse those who are willing to build their own lives on the shattered dreams of others. Some Americans who preach non-violence abroad fail to practice it here at home. Some who accuse others of inciting riots have by their own conduct invited them.

Some look for scapegoats, others look for conspiracies, but this much is clear: violence breeds violence, repression brings retaliation, and only a cleansing of our whole society can remove this sickness from our soul.

For there is another kind of violence, slower but just as deadly destructive as the shot or the bomb in the night. This is the violence of institutions; indifference and inaction and slow decay. This is the violence that afflicts the poor, that poisons relations between men because their skin has different colors. This is the slow destruction of a child by hunger, and schools without books and homes without heat in the winter.

This is the breaking of a man's spirit by denying him the chance to stand as a father and as a man among other men. And this too afflicts us all.

I have not come here to propose a set of specific remedies nor is there a single set. For a broad and adequate outline we know what must be done. When you teach a man to hate and fear his brother, when you teach that he is a lesser man because of his color or his beliefs or the policies he pursues, when you teach that those who differ from you threaten your freedom or your job or your family, then you also learn to confront others not as fellow citizens but as enemies, to be met not with cooperation but with conquest; to be subjugated and mastered.

We learn, at the last, to look at our brothers as aliens, men with whom we share a city, but not a community; men bound to us in common dwelling, but not in common effort. We learn to share only a common fear, only a common desire to retreat from each other, only a common impulse to meet disagreement with force. For all this, there are no final answers.

Yet we know what we must do. It is to achieve true justice among our fellow citizens. The question is not what programs we should seek to enact. The question is whether we can find in our own midst and in our own hearts that leadership of humane purpose that will recognize the terrible truths of our existence.

We must admit the vanity of our false distinctions among men and learn to find our own advancement in the search for the advancement of others. We must admit in ourselves that our own children's future cannot be built on the misfortunes of others. We must recognize that this short life can neither be ennobled or enriched by hatred or revenge.

Our lives on this planet are too short and the work to be done too great to let this spirit flourish any longer in our land. Of course we cannot vanquish it with a program, nor with a resolution.

But we can perhaps remember, if only for a time, that those who live with us are our brothers, that they share with us the same short moment of life; that they seek, as do we, nothing but the chance to live out their lives in purpose and in happiness, winning what satisfaction and fulfillment they can.

Surely, this bond of common faith, this bond of common goal, can begin to teach us something. Surely, we can learn, at least, to look at those around us as fellow men, and surely we can begin to work a little harder to bind up the wounds among us and to become in our own hearts brothers and countrymen once again.

2 killed as 2 bombs explode at Boston Marathon
By By JIMMY GOLEN, Associated Press -  9 minutes ago

There was no word on the motive or who may have launched the attack, and police said no suspect was in custody. Authorities in Washington said there was no immediate claim of responsibility.

Of course he's not in custody, he's 'under guard at the hospital' as a suspect. Those two statements are not mutually exclusive.

Some people are idiots. This is nothing like the IRA bombs sh*t.

Well they are out of practice.

/really doubt it's the IRA

Me too.  If it's at all IRA related, they're down to their C team.  This is bad, but not apocalyptic or anything.

A lot of support for the IRA came from the USA back in the bad old days.  I doubt they'd bomb anyone inside the US unless it was an assassination of someone they really REALLY wanted dead.

The IRA usually called in warnings so no one would be killed, unless some kind of miscommunication occurred such as happened in Omagh.

Um...no.  Just...no.  First thing off wiki:

http://en.wikipedia.org/wiki/Hyde_Park_and_Regent%27s_Park_bombings


I should've been more clear.  The IRA generally stayed clear of killing innocent civilians.  Military targets were fair game.

No, not unless they are...
mentally programmed or given direct orders. Good Americans only consider killing the destroyers of freedom within our Government, not the public at large. So they'd have to be programmed, or given a direct order.... like Timothy McVeigh.
(Going for the MAXIMUM troll!)

But seriously, if you read it in another way, all I said was that here is a good chance to kill a bunch of enemies if they are celebrating this bombing, and that the perps of this bombing need full and prejudicial retaliation, no matter who they may be. Even if it was you.

walkerhound: rufus-t-firefly: justtray: rufus-t-firefly: douchebag/hater: AP is reporting the police are holding a Saudi national as a 'person of interest'.

Nope.

2 killed as 2 bombs explode at Boston Marathon
By By JIMMY GOLEN, Associated Press -  9 minutes ago

There was no word on the motive or who may have launched the attack, and police said no suspect was in custody. Authorities in Washington said there was no immediate claim of responsibility.

Of course he's not in custody, he's 'under guard at the hospital' as a suspect. Those two statements are not mutually exclusive.

Reading comprehension people...

"New York Post" is the part that casts doubt.

If you see the AP reporting about the "under guard at the hospital" bit, please share it, because I sure as hell didn't see it.

What about the Daily Fail citing the NYP?


Still not the AP. Which was the point the original comment.

Sources matter. That's why Alex Jones gets posted here for mockery.

Just to add to the list of people who should get some kudos for helping out, it sounds like people in the neighborhood were opening up their homes for extra injured people, or others needing shelter. Pretty ballsy when something this chaotic is going on. I think the people who immediately set out to donate blood should get some props, too.

"We still do not know who did this or why ... but make no mistake: We will get to the bottom of (this). We will find out who did this. We will find out why they did this. ... Any responsible groups will feel the full weight of justice."

"The American people will say a prayer for Boston tonight, and Michelle and I send out deepest thoughts and prayers to the victims."

It's telling he used the word 'groups'.  Just observation.

He was "acting suspiciously and running from the explosion"....  it would be more suspicious if he WASN'T running for farks sake.
