Did they remember to ban bombs? I remember those were a bit of an issue last time round.

Underwater Bystander: What about wheelchairs? I saw a television program where someone hid a bomb on a wheelchair. Why aren't those banned?

kronicfeld: It's sickening to me how cavalier you people are about all this. You've never been on the front lines of a domestic terrorism attack, so you have no business even having an opinion about protecting Americans from another. Unlike you basement dwellers, I could see Logan Airport from my office window on 9/11. Think about that.


I never forget where I was when Logan Airport exploded on 9/11

PIP_the_TROLL: what_now: PIP_the_TROLL: "loss of freedom"

"fear-mongering"

"terrorists have won"

Yah-yah-yah... I know all that. But given what just happened, isn't it... y'know... prudent?

No. Life has risks. Living in Boston- living without fear- is worth taking the risk.

That all sounds great. But, God forbid, should the unimaginable happen *again* ,what would you tell to the families of the people who have their bodyparts spread across a city block?

"Sorry, we didn't want to look like chickenshiats so we didn't take prudent security measures."?



Please point out which of these policies is a prudent.

• No backpacks, or handbags of any size
• No glass containers, and no container larger than 1 liter.
• no bulky costumes or masks that cover the face, and no proprs.
• no strollers.
• no suitcases & rolling bags.
• no CamelBak-style hydration systems.
• no weight vests or any sort of vest with pockets, except lightweight running vests.
• no signs or flags larger than 11 inches by 17 inches.

I can still bring my pressure cooker right?

Tatterdemalian: kayanlau: Wait ... have they banned terrorists yet?

Can't do that, it's racist.

/no, really
//the modern definition of racism is "anything that displays a significant statistical difference between one race and another"
///so, the criminal justice system is racist, bank loans are racist, gentrification is racist, standardized tests are racist, etc.


Y'all don't know what it's like
Being male, middle-class and white

"We're asking unregistered runners to stand on the sidelines and cheer"

Lulz. What are they supposed to cheer? "Hurray for the police state!"

After the Martial Law situation last time, it's surprising anyone is allowed on the streets to watch it at all.

If you manage to run the Boston marathon wearing a burka and a backpack filled with a 12 pack of wootstout (or any beer), I will buy you a years worth of TF. Pics or it didn't happen.

/or just five miles, that's more reasonable
