The video shows the blast coming from closer to the buildings.

This appears to be from the second bomb. The first bomb was up the road and was in a black backpack.

The first bomb was close to the buildings, the second was close to the road.

This looks like the second bomb, the first (based on overhead pics yesterday) was on a much wider area of sidewalk and left a scorch mark near the building.

Pinging an expert.

I think PhotoShop might have been used in the "after" picture, but for a legitimate reason ... to blur the body parts and dead persons lying there.

Photo 2 is blurring of body parts. Someone needs to LOSE THEIR JOB, including the head of security for this event.

No. The bomb was behind the barricade. Note how the barricade is wrapped around the mailbox. The blast wave came from behind.

the paper bag look still intact, even through the blur, i didn’t see the mailbox move at all either, Doesn’t seem to be the device location that has been explained based on info that i have heard on radio, etc.

I think what you are seeing behind the blur is bodies, not the bag.

It has been ‘shopped. They blurred out the maimed bodies of spectators, one of whom may very well have been that poor 8-year old boy. I assume you’d rather not see that.

This looks like the second bomb, at the first one there were flags by the street and barricades.

Is that a Nork in the white jacket between the two brick pillars ?

That is not a picture of the bomb. If you look at the railing next to the mailbox in the first image, next to the blur in the second image, you see the railing is actually wrapped around the mailbox.

The explosion happened behind that barrier, not in front of it. There’s no way anyone who was helping to clear barricades to reach victims could have bent that railing in that manner. It had to have been done by the explosion.

But they are looking at ground zero, just right behind those poor people.

Distressed people, fallen barriers, stains in street. This is the second bomb location, no doubt.

Mailboxes are “nailed” - screwed to ground.
Bottom of the legs would stay in place, rest up could be deformed.

That package could not be one of the explosive devices. If it were, that postal service drop box would have sustained some serious damage. Yet it is pristine in the 'after' photo.

The tree also would likely have taken a beating.

If you’ve looked at other photos, people had pulled back the railings almost immediately to get to the people so I’m not sure I would read too much into the position of where it is.

Mailbox more than like is bolte down. there should be a fairly significant “dent” in the concrete where ever the bomb was placed, at least major “burn” marks from the powder ingnition.

Interesting, and not to pick on you, but, celebrating the existence of surveillance video (big brother)?

Just an observation, please don't take offense.

I agree .. because the barrier is different than at the first site. The first site barrier was higher and thicker than the one in the picture.

Plus the traffic signs are undamaged. After the OKC bombing I did some work at EMRTC in NM to “calibrate” traffic signs with explosives, by using known amounts at known distances and angles you can get a better read on the power of the device and it’s location.

In the first picture, the guy leaning over the railing in the grey sweater and wearing sunglasses looks like the guy later seen in the wheel chair with his legs blown off and bones sticking out.

If that was the explosive device, that railing would have been pushed back into the crowd, and no where near the mailbox to be pulled against it by rescuers. Even if it wasn't displaced, bending one of those barriers at that severe of an angle would take tremendous pressure, very unlikely to have happened if one or even three guys were yanking on the barrier.

Could not have been that bag that exploded.

Look at how the silver crowd control fence that the bag is leaning against is behind it in the “before” photo.

Now look at how that fence is bent forward and to the right, into the mail box, in the “after” photo.

An explosion in the bag would not bend that fence in that direction.

Also not a big explosive charge. The street signs to the left and right of the seat of the blast don’t seem to be bent. I’d have expected them to be bent/folded away from the blast.

This and the white smoke/orange flash says ‘gunpowder’ to me, not something with a detonation wave.

Still this is all speculation. By now the authorities know well what the charge was from the residue. They just haven’t shared the info with the public.

Might have been a partial detonation which could yield good evidence. This could be an inside job, with street crew or marathon event staff involved.

I people would listen to the accompanying news report video, the reporters explained ...

THEY blurred the pic. The originals were forwarded to the FBI, unblurred. The blurs were to cover up the mained bodies, limbs, blood, gore.

The reporter said that the shopping bag was no longer there in the 2nd photo.

Someone mentioned that such an explosion was a Unibomber method of doing harm. The person who did this is one nasty creep.

Same holds true for the ricin and the package sent to Sheriff Arapaio.

Rescuers and witnesses moved the barriers to help victims! Also, second photo taken an hour or more after first.
