Must be workplace violence, since terrorism no longer exists, since the media no longer covers it.

They should be careful of another explosion after responders arrive. This could’ve been a natural gas pipe or electrical malfunction..

At least one possible secondary device.

What??? Massachusetts, can’t be, this is an iron clad liberal paradise where things like mass shootings and terrorist bombings don’t happen, Just like Connecticut, New York, Maryland, etc. Obama is quite successful in his plan to destroy the american Republic!!! Wake up....America, Satan Obama is hard at work wiping you all americans out or rendering you slaves to his Muslim brethren!!!

On marathon day, across from the finish line. Too coincidental.

Quick, blame it on the Tea Party.

Obviously large capacity magazines, racism, and tepid acceptance of homosexuality are to blame.

FWIW the fire department is saying that the police are treating this as a crime scene, and they are warning of at least two possible secondary devices.

Doubt it’s a gas main, no crater, no continuing burn.

"Almost looks like a gas main."

I am hearing it originated inside the building which would be consistent with a gas line failure. The timing however coupled with a double explosion is quite suspect. Does anybody know if there is any parking structure/lot in the area?

Not sure. Never been to that area.

My comment was the large fireball. In a previous job, we worked with flammable gas a lot. Large balls of fire are a gas burn. Explosives typically don’t have that much “Hollywood”.

At this point, it doesn’t matter, praying for the victims

That would be the way to bet.

OTOH, that's not the way to bet on who will get blamed.

Fox just were showing live video and they had a guy up on a stretcher with all you could see was his lower leg bone exposed, nothing else. One of the challenges of live video feed.

"No they will blame on some anti-tax zealot who was mad he was having to pay “his fair share.”"

While I suppose that's a remote possibility, I'd put it well down the list behind:

1. Al-Qaeda - (the usual suspects)
2. Norks - they've been feeling froggy lately, and today is Kim Il Sung's b-day.
3. IRA(?!?!?) - Double-bomb is their old MO, lots of Boston area ties, and the recent death of Thatcher may have made them long for the old days.
4. Anybody's guess is as good as any of the above at this point. False flags should never be discounted until they can be ruled out.

If it is, it will be whitewashed.

I’m betting the media starts with “right wing Christian conservatives” for now.
