From the local news....
You can really get a sense for the concussion with this video
Whenever these things happen, my mind wanders all over the place.
Is it foreign terrorism or domestic terrorism? Is it an attack or one of our home-grown crazies who just wants attention? Is it a distraction to get authorities focused on one place, while something worse happens elsewhere in the city?
My mind generally just thinks "WTF is wrong w/ people!"
Yep, similar thoughts. Looks like 4 items now. 2 at finish line, 1 at JFK library, maybe one not detonated.
Maybe just a fire at JFK library.
I saw that the Bruins game has been postponed if not cancelled. Just being safe or is there a connection found?
Update: Game cancelled
Yeah... unfortunately, that too.
I saw the chief of police or commissioner or something speaking a little bit ago, and he was saying that while they don't know if the JFK fire is related, until they determine otherwise they are treating it as if both are related to each other.
New reports say 132 injured, 17 critical. One of the deaths was an 8 year old.
That is a being safe situation. It's not just the Bruins but every theater, arena, etc. is canceled.
It seems odd, at least to me, that nobody has claimed responsibility. :shrug:
That's one of the things that leads me to the "could this have been a distraction to engage law enforcement so that whomever was behind this can do something elsewhere with less law enforcement to worry about" theory.
More of the Timothy McVeigh type of bomber ... hit and run with no announcement of responsibility.
I was annoyed by a certain news channel's early coverage ... saying it was a "good day" for a bombing and that by placing the bombs where they did in the finish line crowds they got "more bang for the buck". I tuned out when the newscaster said that the victims suffered various forms of decapitation. (I believe he meant amputations.) PS: It was not Al Jazerra.
I wonder if we will have anyone take responsibility?
In just a few weeks we have our Flying Pig Marathon. Hopefully they can make some changes based on this, but really, with an event like this, there is only so much you can do.
It's controlled chaos here. I work on an Air Force base and we were warned yesterday that getting in would take longer. Sure enough, there were random cars pulled over for thorough inspection when I came in this morning.
Maybe North Korea did it to take attention off of them?
I'm not sure North Korea is that competent.
Sad to say, but America and Americans are going to have to accept that these types of horrific acts and events are, and are going to be a part of the price we pay for living in a free society.
