"We started grabbing tourniquets and started tying legs. At least 25 to 30 people have at least one leg missing, or an ankle missing, or two legs missing."

:(

intent to injure it seems.


From what I'm hearing from one of the hospitals caring for the victims, they may have been ball bearings inside the bombs. Those are for the sake of increasing human injury/death.

Apology if it's already come up, but everyone should make very clear mental notes about the eyewitness and media reports of multiple explosions. Some people have a habit of getting amnesia when the media begins to repeat there was only one later on.

They're feeding a Boston FOX affiliate on the East Coast broadcast. Someone tell that anchor to lay off the hypothetical back story for the dead child. Your not helping.

bad for humanity though. maybe the bombing was done by a brave man sent back from the future to protect the future of humanity from a marauding horde of robot killers?  when you think about it, it's the most logical explanation from the evidence and facts available currently.

fisker: Sultan Of Herf: Bombs, on tax day, in the city known for our greatest anti tax protest...pretty clear message there.

What kind of people would be stupid enough to make it that obvious?


OK City Bombing was on the anniversary of the Waco fire. Sometimes making it obvious is the intent.

Mrbogey: Mikey1969: I was wondering, too. I haven't seen a decent video that showed when/where the second bomb went off. That cell phone video someone posted earlier was weak sauce shiat, it was mostly of the ground, and then it shook...

http://www.youtube.com/watch?v=046MuD1pYJg&list=UUcNkwfTQuXAxAFwoAUH we JA

I don't know if this is the one you're talking about but it clearly sounds like the other bomb went off about 12-14 seconds after the first. You can see the smoke of the second blast as it goes off.


It's a good sign when you see that many people running toward the scene and helping.

Latest from CBS News from the Reporter who broke the Sandy Hook story:

CBS News senior correspondent John Miller reports that a Saudi national is being questioned by authorities. He was seen "acting suspiciously" running from the explosion and a civilian chased him down and tackled him. He was turned over to Boston Police and is being questioned by FBI. He is being cooperative and denies any involvement.

So there was a Muslim in custody as per NY Post, but it was just some random guy that a bystander tackled for being Muslim

i think that much is apparent.  it definitely wasn't done with the intent of hugs and kisses.

In you live in Boston and have extra space in your home, consider providing temporary lodging for those in the area who are stranded due to the bombing. You can fill out this form if you're stuck in Boston and need a place to stay, as well.

TheRealist: I don't think this was domestic terrorism,


It's odd, it seems that this was planned well and more than one person was involved, but they may not have been as familiar with explosives or they were trying to maim and kill, not just kill. Many domestic terrorists do a "better" job.

I'd say it wasn't Al Qaeda or a large, organized group, because they seem to want to do "more" than this (although certainly everybody is on edge).

ontariolightning: Did That guy with the blown off legs and grey toned face , die?


most likely. just the bleeding from a pic I saw of him prior to transport was pretty bad. Two large bores and 2000ml NS doesn't replace blood. There is a chance that if they got him to a trauma center fast enough that he's still with us, but in critical condition.

Cell phone Service is being shut down in the city.

Being shut down or overloaded???

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.


yeah I mentioned that in the earlier thread, that emergency protocols call for such things

what_now: What the fark are you on about? Take that shiat to the blithering idiot tab.


Don't want to get into a big thing about it, but there is a long history of media and eyewitnesses reporting multiple explosions immediately after terrorist attacks in the US, which are later forgotten.

Just a friendly reminder, in case. Not trying to derail things.

There are five world class hospitals within a mile and literally hundreds of volunteer medical personnel around. It's possible he could have made it

TheRealist: God dammit, all i keep seeing is those yellow balloons. You know a kid was holding those. I don't think this was domestic terrorism, that being said, we should not overreact... this was just another successful plot that is a rarity when you look at the big picture.


Nothing currently has any red flags or MOs about the attacks right now. It could be somebody from AQ. It could be a domestic terrorist. It could be some deranged tourist that came overseas. We'll know very soon.

I see it, but there's no way that foot / leg is associated with an 8 yr old by the size and style.

Peki: puffy999: what_now: They keep showing this video, and there's an old guy who's 10 feet from the finish and when the bomb hits, he simply collapses. I know it's not the worst thing that happened, but the idea of a guy of advanced years getting hit by shrapnel 10 feet from finishing a marathon... I don't even.

I don't know the strength of the bomb or even really much about the human physiological condition once they've run for 26.19 miles, but I can imagine scenarios where he collapsed due to weakness and the pressure wave, or was startled by the sound and fell. After such a run, anyone in that position would have difficulty getting up (and at least one runner indicated such a point in an interview).

Could the blast wave cause a concussion at that distance, on a person of advanced age? That was the first thought I had when I saw the vid.


Sure.  Blast effects are a bit random; there have been wartime cases with large shells going off right next to soldiers, tossing them in the air, and not hurting them, while some poor bastard 100 yards out takes a fatal chunk of shrapnel.

So, are you like researching these people for some twisted sociology experiment?  Or, like my particular pack of nutty assholes, it turns out you're related to them?  Because I don't know why else you'd be seeing that shiat.

Okay, morbid curiosity is a reason.

These days? Yup.


It is interesting that they had several patrols of bomb snifing dogs at the Raleigh-Durham airport this Monday.  I fly every week and this is the first time that I have seen this. Very unusual. I wonder if the U.S. government had intelligence that something was going to happen this week that led to elevated measures.

From the video, that guy looks like he grabbed his left ear and then fell down, as if his balance was thrown off.

He looked like he collapsed from losing his balance and running over 26 miles. His muscles just gave out when he lost his balance a bit.
