Why don’t we act smarter than the media is and just wait until the officials come out and give us the facts?
Gov DeVol just issued a statement “Our thoughts and prayers... blah blah blah”.
Politicans pray? And to whom or what?
When the hell are they going to start banning bombs and garbage cans????
Unrelated? So it’s just a coincidence in the midst of all this?
An hour and 20 minutes....no word from the Prez, no pending comment announced.
There was a fire in the JFK library a few minutes after the explosions at the marathon ... The fire was caused by a “mechanical failure.”
So WHY the extra military presence??????
Thinking out loud here: If it were Islamoterrorism, the Muslims like to time these things on the date of some event in their history with the West— usually when they got their butts kicked. This was the case with both 911 and the Madrid train bombing. The only significant April 15 incident I can come up with just a little research is that today is the anniversary of the first Arab-Israeli battle in 1948 in which the Arabs were defeated. Others here might find other connections.
Scroll down to Pic #8; hold on tight...
I think he actually did say something, but whenever he comes on the radio or tv, I change the channel.
He’s probably taking his afternoon nap. Come on, he gets up at ten!!
Shemp is such a media whore.
Hussein is waiting to learn the religion of the bomber
IIRC, the Bomb Squad had a controlled detonation at a library.
Not exactly, they prey.
So, coupe de val has issued a statement. Did he read the one from his maximum eminence and say I concour??
Are there any YouTube videos with 30 hits or less that caused someone to be outraged and decide to protest?
You should never ever assume a cellphone or any other wireless device will work in an emergency. Sorry, laws of physics plus dependence on shared infrastructure that will quickly be overloaded, if not put out of operation one way or another.
Wave of bombings today in Iraq, 55+ dead
Conflicting reports as to whether there was a fire or an explosion at the JFK library.
No thank you.
Really? Wow. Nuts.
A statement was issued that the Prez has made calls to the governor and mayor.
If it is ROP, they were forced to do it because of a video.
Because once the administration gets involved we have no way of knowing if we are being told the truth.
Just goes to show us, Mental Illness is the enemy, not guns.
We are afraid to label people and now the country is full of kooks willing to use violence of any type, knives, bombs, etc.
Amazing the guy is sitting up and conscious.
Mumbles Menino just issued one too and this is a direct quote: "gstrr ssrdrsmmmmmmmmbbsle sye. sges krksmmmmmmmnnsn"
“But what if someone needs to call in an emergency?”
Yeah, tough choices. If you are in the area, though, there are lots of cops, and there are still some regular wired phones in use.
The photo on Drudge looks like a Tannerite explosion.
I noticed moments after the bombing a member of the National Guard ran to help the wounded.
This don't smell right.
What is up with the rest of the photo’s after #8?
2 hours now without word from Prez: Just like on 9-11, ABC’s Ann Compton will soon say about the President “you can run but you can’t hide.”
Scanner: FBI looking for a Penske truck trying to get into a hospital saying it had supplies -
NY Post is reporting that a Saudi National is being held as a suspect!
NY POST: “Police confirmed a third explosion at JFK Library in Boston. It was unclear if the explosion was linked to the two earlier ones that took place at the Marathon.”
Guarantee ya Zero was on the golf course.
My thought as well - but, fear that the bomb could yet be set off via remote control, cell phone, other means - they took it away to a safe place and somehow blew it up.
I would have liked to know if finger prints could have been lifted from it. Likely not, however.
The suspect a Saudi national who suffered shrapnel wounds in today's blast is currently being guarded in a Boston hospital
A law enforcement source confirmed to The Post that 12 people were killed and nearly 50 were injured in today's blast.
“When the hell are they going to start banning bombs and garbage cans????”
Think about the reloading community, amateur rocket community, and amateur pyro people. New crackdowns will impact them.
Police Press Conf:
Gov. Deval and Police Commissioner so far.
Most people suffering from mental illness will never commit an act of violence.
I’m shocked! /s
These scanner feeds will probably be compiled and linked for later listening on various scanner sites on the net.
