"We"? Are you guys news reporters, or just taking an unhealthily morbid interest?

But no injures are being reported from that explosion.

Also the injury toll is now at 64.

JFK library was ruled as an "unrelated electrical" explosion. Seems fishy if you ask me.

What in gosh's name are you talking about I'm not asking for anyone to be banned or have posts deleted. But ok, it's not the time/place for it.

It was confirmed as a third explosion during the press conference. That does not mean it's related but it's being treated as such.

Woah, really saddening news. My thoughts go out to the affected and their families.

Does anyone know who may be behind this? As someone ITT has already stated, I suspect this is more of a lone crackpot attempt to kill people rather than something with terrorist intentions, the marathon is a bit of a low key event to make it a target for terrorism. It's a good thing not many people have been killed.

I'm aware, just saying what i saw.
Anyway, this is pretty sad. Anymore news on the 3 bombs found? What sort of bombs were they? My friend said they were IED's.

Home made shrapnel bombs, possibly cellphone triggered. Boston cellphone service has been shut down.

Just heard police are guarding a suspect at a nearby hospital. Other news sources aren't confirming that.

Well that's definitely not good. Hope they catch whoever did this. Any news of terrorist groups?

I am hearing some sources saying that

1. Up to 12 people have been killed so far.

2. We have a potential suspect, who is a Saudi National.

This may be an Al Qaeda attack. It isn't confirmed yet, but it seems to have that kind of nature to it.


Feel no mercy for me. It will only cause you to suffer as well.

It's just a viral marketing campaign for the new Aqua Teen movie.

On a serious and not horribly offensive note, damn, shit's fucked up.
I don't know if it's just me or the internet or life in general or if I'm just noticing it now but there's a lot of killings going on recently in America.

I know who did it.

Some people call him a terrorist, but he considers himself a teacher.

Has FOX made an article about this bombing yet? If so, what video games did they blame?

my cell phone wasn't working for the longest goddamn time. phone lines were so busy.

good thing nobody died.

and this shit happened a few blocks away from where i live. about a twenty minute walk.

i can't believe that before i've talked to my father about any of this, i thought "hey! i'm going to post about this on newgrounds! they love me, right?"

i guess my desire to offer my personal opinion on an important issue to a community that's filled mindless cacophony and insensitivity is greater than it should be.

also i live in boston

It's interesting what details make it feel real. Reading that they had ball bearings in was a bit vivid.

That's crazy. Why someone would target a marathon I don't know but hope to find out soon. Not sure how this is gonna affect London since I heard they have a marathon in I think less than a week.
