WizardofToast: Hearing up on the Revere apartment update. Now I don't want to sleep until I see what goes down.


Interesting story. But I doubt any information will be released about it tonight.

SamWaters: No death penalty in Massachusetts, life without the possibility of parole being the only punishment for first-degree murder.   The House twice defeated efforts to have it re-instated, one of the efforts to re-instated it was led by Governor Mitt Romney.


Am I the only person that thinks that life without the possibility of parole is much much worse than the death penalty?

Why would some person, persons or group target a venue where there are women, elderly, children and infants in the line of fire?

The law enforcement community has to find the perpetrator(s) extremely quickly. There is no regard for even kids and infants.

JungleBoogie: way south: Not many amateurs have the means or experience to pull off multiple remote detonations.

This data point struck me as well. Remote, nearly simultaneous bomb explosions is not easy. And resulting in 130-some casualties. Target selection was perfect. Bomb placement was perfect. The bombs were likely small yet quite powerful. All point to experience and sophistication.


They could have been backpack bombs on a timer. Place one, start timer, walk to next location, repeat.

Void_Beavis: Agreed. I want to know exactly the motherfarker who did this, even if it takes years of tireless painstakingly hard detective work. And I want to know exactly the fat cocksucker who was asleep at the wheel where people were stacked 20 deep in a major metropolitan area during a major event at a highly visible area for that event not watching the area for unattended bags.


Why doesn't everyone have 20/20!!!

There are a limited number of sites where bombs were placed. There are dozens (hundreds?) of people trained and available to review footage. There is no practical reason why a photo has not been released, or at least more information. When a child is abducted, we get more info than this and we get it sooner.

Newsflash: They're not concerned with providing you with info, dickwad. How much information you get from them has no bearing on how much info they're getting and reviewing. Think maybe they're too busy investi-farking-gating to keep you abreast of the latest haps?

Xcott: SurelyShirley: Look at the recent case of ex-LAPD officer Dorner, who killed the daughter of the man he thought responsible for his firing, and her fiance.
Also, DC sniper, who supposedly wanted to kill his ex-wife in order to get custody of their kids, and shot all other victims as a diversion

There was also Ronald Clark O'Bryan, who gave out poisoned Pixie Stix at Halloween as a cover for poisoning his own kid for insurance money.  It's not unheard of for someone to plot to kill extra people randomly as a cover for a single murder.

On the other hand, here we're talking about a bombing---this probably requires more skill and sophistication than you'd expect from the kind of guy who says, "I know!  I'll kill a bunch of extra people so I won't get caught!"


The odds of that happening in this case is none to nil. Unless the bomb was planted in a car, house etc or something specific it is a terrible and a very ineffective method of killing a targeted individual. And 4 bombs is overly excessive to kill one individual even for diversion sake.

PunGent: Infernalist: Don't Claymore mines use ball-bearings?

And haven't they said that many of the injured were dealing with leg injuries?

Could the bombs have been military-grade claymore mines?

Unlikely; would've been less smoke, and more fatal casualties.


Not saying it was a claymore, but even if it was, that doesn't mean it was military in origin. Claymores have been around for over 100 years and they're not hard to make. Could be someone's homebrewed equivalent.

Depends. This guy could have kept those explosives on himself when he detonated them, but was obviously too interested in self-preservation. For him, death is something to be feared.

Yet we still see people do whatever they can to avoid the death penalty and spend the rest of their lives in prison. You don't see many people actually go out of their way to try to get the death penalty. So I'd have to say that no, it isn't.

You and I just look at it that way because we're normal people. I might kill myself if I'd have to spend even five years in prison. Many convicts will do that same time like it's a piece of cake.

The All-Powerful Atheismo: Even Fox is being more fair than that. (I feel dirty)


You remind me of my roommate on 9-11, hard core hippy, went to college in the late 60s / early 70's. He would fit in with the farker lefties here. By mid-day on that Tuesday, even he said we had to watch Fox, they were the only ones that actually gave information and also used commentators from all across the political spectrum. He also used the "felt dirty" line (although I think it was "I feel like an asshole") but CNN became a non-starter for him.

 Please do shut the fark up. It's people like you who call for the bullshiat security measures we've had to put up with since 9/11. People like you will guarantee another decade of wheelchair-bound grannies being groped at airports and 100-mile regions touching borders being constant 'no-freedom' zones.

 That area WAS crawling with cops and bomb-sniffing dogs. It didn't stop the tragedy, because frankly, you can't always stop the tragedies. You rarely hear about the ones they DO stop (and they do stop many).

I'm not getting into the culprit's motivation, but I cant help but think that if someone had some  real  ballistics and explosives training, though the US military or AQ or otherwise,  they could have created something that could do more damage than 3 fatalities after being detonated in a gigantic crowd.   This looks like some sort of Eric Murdock cooked-it-up-in-my-own-backyard-using-teh-intrawebbings bullshiat.

You want them to have search checkpoints along an entire 26 mile marathon route? What side streets should they shut down to control access to downtown Boston? And for how long? It's not like this is POTUS coming through for 15 minutes. You can clamp down a small area for that. This is vastly different. You have people finishing this race over a stretched out 2-6hr time period with supporters coming and going as their friends/family approach the finish line.

CygnusDarius: It was lost in the comments, so I'll post it again.

According to this source (link in spanish), former president of Mexico, Felipe Calderon (the one responsible for starting a direct military action against the drug cartels) was a spectator in the race. Maybe one of the Zetas (known for subtlety), wanted to kill him and cause enough mayhem to slip away.

If this were true, well, you guys wanted US troops in Mexico?.

No. There were no dog patrols present at the sites where the bombs went off during the race, nor working up and down the race route during the race checking the crowds out. This was corroborated by several of the eyewitness accounts that I saw tonight interviewed by the reporters. In New York during any major event like this since 9/11 and during major traffic holidays at places like Grand Cental and Penn, there are almost certainly to be seen dog bomb patrols actively seeking out any packages left unattended for just such a thing. Yet to a person (at least from what I saw) at this marathon reported none such patrolling. If this is true, whoever responsible for securing this event needs to be questioned about this and be held accountable. It's rediculous (if true). I mean, yes it's not possible to have a dog patrol in the right place at the right time always but just like any security expert will tell you, securing soft targets like this is all about reducing risks. Having such patrols does that and to not do it is irresponsible.

I know this is hindsight 20/20 shiat, but you can close down the blocks immediately surrounding the finish line, where most of the spectator and media attention is, and make spectators go through security checkpoints with metal detectors to get into that area. That's exactly what they do with Hollywood Blvd. for the Oscars every year. Of course, they can't secure the entire 26+ miles of the race route, but obviously there was a breakdown in security if a guy was able to place TWO bombs right in the middle of the busiest area in broad daylight and then just walked away.

AMEN. We should be mad as hell at the bomber and at whoever was asleep at the wheel security-wise. The minute the people start "coming together" and singing Cumbaya, the government walks all over us. 9/11 got us the Patriot Act and two farking wars, all because we were "united."

I had heard that one of the explosions looked like it went off in a trash can.  If so, thats a lot harder to detect than a bag sitting there for a few hours.  Some dude can look like hes throwing away some trash and walk away.  Even so, this was a security failure.  Look for many more cops and dogs at all sporting events and gatherings.  I bet there will be dogs walking through the lots at all major sporting games from now on.

Islam went from being a relatively advanced culture compared to Christendom, to wasting centuries butchering each other over the whole Sunni/shiate thing for centuries, which then made them easy meat for the British Empire.

Attacking Israel four times, losing four times, and STILL blaming the Jews for all their problems?

They did that all on their own.

Marine1: Depends. This guy could have kept those explosives on himself when he detonated them, but was obviously too interested in self-preservation. For him, death is something to be feared.


Maybe they were strapped to his calves?

SuperNinjaToad: Uranus Is Huge!: My money is on some creepy, loner, white guy that hates the govenrment. I really hope it's not a Muslim. At least we'd have a good shot at attacking the correct country. Best case scenario? North Korea claim responsibility...and is telling the truth. I won't hold my breath.

so based on your 'wish' I am guessing you're a Muslim who hates Koreans? huh?
.......otherwise I don't quote get what exactly you're saying or trying to convey.


1) My guess, based on nothing but other bombings in US history, is that the perpetrator will be a white guy.

2) If it turns out to be a product of Islamic terrorism, I will be extra sad, given this country's past reactions when Muslims are involved.

3) I half-jokingly stated that if this event leads to war, it might as well be with a country begging for a smack down - North Korea.

Now go bunch up your panties around around another random post out of the two thousand in the thread.

mccallcl: dave2198: This may come as a shock to you, but authorities often hold evidence that they don't share with other people.

Thanks for the tip, but I don't give a shiat. My fellow Americans and I have a right to know everything about this immediately. It's a deadly terror attack, not a minor arrested for PI in the local news blotter. I don't want to find out the day after tomorrow, once the authorities have gotten a chance to circle up and get their stories straight. I want the information as it becomes available. My tax dollars paid for the equipment we're supposedly using to monitor these groups, and the staff that's supposed to keep me safe from terror. Somebody farked up somewhere (probably several somebodies). I want their names, so I can be sure they are fired.

I also want the names of any and all suspects before they have a chance to be escorted out of the country on private planes because their families are connected, or before they are anonymously executed because their identities would be an embarrassment to someone important. I also don't want the same truther bullshiat as last time, fed in part by the bizarre timing of information released in the wake of 9/11.

We have a right to know, and "part of an ongoing investigation" or not, I demand the raw truth. We don't hold back evidence when a bank is robbed, we put the perps on blast.


We have a right to know up until the point where telling us things hampers the investigation.  If telling us everything is going to give some suspects a head start on running away or otherwise make the perps harder to catch, then I would rather the government shut up and catch some people.  Crimeny, dude, let the cops do their thing.
