Explosions rock Boston Marathon, several injured

boston marathon explosionsA pair of explosions rocked the finish line at the Boston Marathon on Monday afternoon, injuring at least a half-dozen people, a CNN producer at the scene said.

The blasts occurred a few seconds apart, shrouding downtown Boston’s Copley Square in smoke. Paramedics were treating several victims at the scene, and police ordered onlookers to back away from the area, CNN Producer Matt Frucci reported.

The explosions occurred about 2:45 p.m., about an hour after the first runners had crossed the finish line, Frucci said.

    The act of cowards…

      In all countries … those who cannot face life.
      There are always people who have no answers for their own problems and difficulties in life, and those who cannot find good answers to their own questions about it, and if exposed to some sorry existence, or led in the wrong way, they do nothing but blame others. When ‘blame’ becomes obsession, they often decide the answer is just to kill anyone else who seems to be a part, in that convoluted reasoning, and this sort of event has nothing ‘personal’ in it. Any human suffering, which the perpetrator feels in him/herself, will do. Delivering ‘terror’ assuages the ‘self-importance’.
      And they don’t need to be necessarily people with low I.Q.’s either … although you can see those could often be the most easily led by ‘examples’ they have seen – and in a modern-media world there’s a lot of examples being hyped and delivered – daily.
      The most convoluted brain will be the one which states: ‘God/Devil made me do it.’

    Cowardly, sick, cruel,brutal,and inhumane …… Having been a former runner myself, I have a soft spot for marathons and for people who participate in these events. It’s beyond my ability to understand as to why would anyone want to hurt people running or watching a marathon. I guess cowards only act and hurt others when they feel save themselves, and a marathon event is soft target for cowards to feel safe enough to hurt others.

      Would love nothing more than to get hands on the ones responsible. Little mercy would be shown.

      This is the best of the best of scriptures. It defines ALL what is real in a religion. Simple yet STRONG. BEST message for this situation.

  7. Take
    care of the injured. Console families of those that were killed. Sit
    tight and let the police do their job. Wait for the facts before drawing
    any conclusions. Be supportive without getting in the way. Our heart
    goes out to the victims, and to Boston. “Do no ask for whom the bell
    tolls.”

    The solution to this issue will be not to have Finish line. This way people will not be crowded in one ares.

      They crowd into malls too Libnan. The upshot of this sort of thing is simply doing what the ‘terrorist’ wants to accomplish … loss of privacy, fear in all the hearts and minds … total inconvenience to travel and even walking around … security costs increasing, people not getting together in harmony, and destruction of a way of life which all but the terrorist wish to enjoy. Caving in to it is not an answer.
      He didn’t attack the runners – only the people watching the run, which is something humans have been doing for a long time. It could be a picnic area, or a beach too. Do you really want to sit in a room all the time ordering in the scotch? (Bad enough the ‘cams’ are all over the damn place already … you want all eyes on my beach too??)
