Or so she says. Did you let her know the police would like to talk to her?

cegorach: Not being American, I am not familiar with your holidays etc. but is it correct this occurred on Tax Day?

In a city once known for its 'patriots' who took a violent stand against taxation but is now a somewhat liberal bastion, to the point of holding a marathon commemorating an event that has been the biggest kick in the nuts to the pro-gun/FREEDOM population of America?

Given all that, but muslims?


Tax Day is not so much a holiday as just the day taxes are due. The post office is open really late, and CPAs drink heavily at midnight. That's about it. It is, however, Patriot's Day in Mass. When Patriot's Day falls on Tax Day, Massholes get an extra grace day to file state taxes, because the post office and state government stuff are closed. But they have to file their federal returns early for the same reason (The Feds do not care about their Patriots Day shenanigans) so it's a double edged sword, really.

2013-04-15 08:39:13 PM

WillofJ2: In all this I understand there can be a desire to document and event, but it disturbs me terribly to see videos and pictures of people in need of help, someone in  moment of distress and pain, instead of a reaction to help they video or stand over them and picture their tragedy.

And much as the comments people make in forums and on this site and on the news site to make light and jokes of other peoples pain and misery I just don't get it, I guess enough people haven't seen violent death and injury of people and children up close to understand the what it does to people to gain some sort of empathy and I hope people never have to but jokes especially when children are injured and killed  just show a lack of humanity and character


First responders are trained to run towards something like this on instinct. For reporters, their instinct is to report the story, which also helps suppress the shock of what they've seen. They get tunnel vision and focus on the job. If anything, photos and video could prove helpful to the investigation.

It is. It's currently a special edition of On Point reporting on the bombings, talking to Jessica... terrorism expert.  However, it's become a call-in show so the crazies are coming out.
 
2013-04-15 08:40:50 PM

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.

1. TERRORISTS: Look at those who are "most likely" to have reason to commit such an act out of hatred.

2. FALSE FLAG: Look at the ENEMIES of category 1, as they might benefit from creating enemies of their enemies.


In other words, you ask the simple question: WHO BENEFITS?

3. CRAZIES: Consider that it MAY have been committed by one or more lunatics with NO apparent motive other than death and destruction.

miss diminutive: hubiestubert: So far, all my Boston peeps have checked in or been confirmed to be OK.

I'm going to go out on a limb here. I'm not going to pretend that I'm not angry about this. I'm not going to pretend to not want the folks responsible found, but I am going to suggest that maybe we dial back the rage, and not point fingers just yet, until the folks on the ground actually do their jobs. I know that speculation IS something we are all pretty good at, but at this point, things are spotty information-wise, and while there are professional fear mongers who are slathering at the chance to advance their ratings and their own agendas, it would be satisfying as f*ck if we DIDN'T give in to their game. Folks are looking to hop on this event, and ride it for all their worth, and advance as many crack pot theories and conspiracies, and spin human tragedy into their own brand of gold. Let's let folks do their jobs, find the scum responsible, and maybe NOT jump to conclusions until we get something confirmed. Domestic, Islamic, some other brand of terrorist, it is up in the air, and gesticulating wildly doesn't really do any good, nor pointing fingers and getting hett up at idiots who want to pump up "their" side, when the sad fact is, there aren't a lot of sides here. Just a lot of folks who got hurt, and they were our neighbors and friends, and maybe we should find out who did this, before screaming for them to get strung up, and volunteering folks for the gallows early.

Just a thought. Let's get the facts in first. Then maybe we can even bring them to trial, and see justice done. Of course, being Boston, the suspects may just have a serious trip and fall accident on the way to their cell block or even leaving the scene of their arrest, but let's at least give the police and the FBI a chance to identify folks before screaming that ONE side or ANOTHER was responsible.
Just a thought.

Couldn't have said it better myself. There's a reason why you always appear in green.

There's a difference between being an apologist and pointing out that the IRA was not indiscriminately into terror bombing civilians during the Troubles.

You're also ignoring all the deaths inflicted by the other sides in that conflict.

Here you go:

http://en.wikipedia.org/wiki/The_Troubles#Casualties

And you know what? The worst bombing that occurred, the one in Omagh, had several telephone calls placed warning well in advance that the bomb was going to go off. There was confusion about where the bomb was on the part of the authorities, and that was what contributed to the casualties.

It was a terrible, reprehensible act, that should not have been done, but still, nevertheless, calls were placed warning about it ahead of time.


Fark off. As someone who lives in the UK at the time, the IRA called in false bomb threats continually so the signal to noise ratio made it a crapshoot.
I lived less than 10 miles from the site of the Warrington bombings, set in trash cans outside stores in a busy shoppi g centre on the Saturday before Mothers Day.
They called in an alert that a bomb had been planted outside Boots - that's like calling in an alert saying there is a bomb by a Walgreens somewhere in the US.
A three year old and an eleven year old were killed, shopping for Mother's Day.
Didn't target civilians - bullshiat.
Then there is the Xmas pub bombing campaign...

Gee, they put ball bearings in the bombs?

I hope they're still in Boston.  If they get caught in Boston - they will never leave.

Bruins game cancelled.
Local officials telling people "not to congregate", which is just weird, everyone I know is just staying away from landmarks tonight.
Boston Athletic Club hosted BPD and statie running groups today, they were talking about using our facilities for a staging center for people displaced/locked out of crime scene areas, but decided that they didn't need to, and despite many of the police leaving gear at the club, everyone seems to be getting to business without any undue fuss.
Local pd said the latest they heard was that the fires at JFK weren't related.
A lot of ginned up pissed off locals who had to end at mile 22-24, promising death and mayhem for cowardly turrists.
Carbing-up continues, supplies of Harpoon IPA and Prince spaghetti running low.
All news is bullshiat today, expect a different story tomorrow.

Yes, because placing vague calls is a show of real heroism; let's blame the authorities for not being psychic.  Tell that to the parents of the little boy in Warrington who was blown to pieces, but not quite enough to kill him instantly, so he had the pleasure of dying in hospital a short while later - he was buying a Mothers' Day gift.  Of course, a warning was telephoned: not to the police, mind you but to the Samaritans [if you don't know who they are it's a suicide helpline] giving the location of one bomb - IIRC correctly two bombs went off almost simultaneously at different locations.

But bless the IRA, they did call ahead first.  Casualties of war, they call them and hey, it proves terrorism does work.  Odd Sein Fein renounced violence on September 12th 2001 - never saw the need prior to that date, I wonder why.

False flags are kinda rare tho. Issue being that these attacks cost alot of money and take alot of effort to carry out.
You don't build a pyramid just to throw the blame on the Romans. You want to be given your due (and show your creditors and supporters your handiwork).

I'm still going with foreign terrorism, and I'll raise that bet to say the people responsible either tried or will try to take credit.
Its probably lost in the chaos but I'd find it odd if they didn't.

/if it was a false flag with no one blamed and no fake video or letter to blame them, that wouldn't make any sense at all.
