wtf? the scary part about this is that its a smaller kind of event. It kind of gives off the "this could happen anywhere" terror. i've heard some people start spotting out some conspiracy theories- tax day, there was a facebook account created days ago for mourning the victims of this incident, etc etc. heart goes out to the victims obviously, but what do you think is happening?

Holy shit man, terrible

This reminds me of when those buses in London got bombed.
I wonder why, or who did this

The "It could happen anywhere" terror is just fear mongering. "1:110,000,000 Americans Killed in bombing Yesterday!"

Doesn't change the fact that it could happen anywhere. Whatever the case, this is a tragedy.

well...it could happen anywhere like taxer said. smaller less well-known places of that become targeted are better at scaring people because it does give off that feeling of "shit- nothing is safe"- just how i think and im pretty sure how lots of people think as well.

Well of course it can happen anywhere. But people shouldn't be afraid. They're still more likely to get hit by a bus. Fear that it may happen again since the guy(s) haven't been caught yet. Things like this tend to make people stupid and fear for their lives. Like when that satellite came back to Earth a year or two ago. People were actually afraid that it would hit despite them being more likely to win the lottery a couple dozen times

It's a pretty terrible tragedy, no doubt, but do I ever hate how the media has exploited it for viewers. And for fear-mongering. They were literally showing people with their legs blown off on the news stations.

Do you think the public would be better off just hearing it?

Perhaps the pictures gives the public a complete story

I'm on the fence on this one. I'm against censorship, and I'm sure they were doing it for ratings, but man..heartbreaking that this still happens

Blackstar!!!

I know that's how it works, but I'd like to think some people would be more sensitive to that kind of thing. I'm not saying censor it, but man if it was one of my loved ones I wouldn't want it plastered all over television.

Man so much happening right now.

Two Russian suspects shot and killed an officer and injured another. One was killed, the other is being literally manhunted today. The whole city is in lockdown and the transit system isn't operating. There are around 6000 cops in Boston looking for him. These guys are young too, 19 year olds. They were seen on the security cameras dropping black bags. Hopefully they can get him alive so they can find out what the H is going on. A city like Boston being in lockdown, Jesus Christ

I am baffled that Boston was cowering for a full day over a 19 year old terrorist. Reading over the news articles this was honestly a real life movie. They were throwing improvised bombs out of there damn car at him. And they got the older brother but this guy gets away. The next day is a huge media spectacle and then he is captured at the end of the day

Tell me that isn't a good plot

really makes me think that there's some over-arching plan behind this bombing. one of those "sparks" that could ignite something worse. hopefully not though

So apparently they want to try him in a military court and a whole slew of other things, which is cool and all, but it seems to violate a bunch of his constitutional rights. If you want to put him in jail, do it the right way.

I live 20 miles from Boston and this was definitely a tragedy. I actually have a friend who ran the marathon and I just really was pretty damn shocked. My friend was fine and was actually helping out all day to try to help people get back to their families and whatnot which was amazing since he ran and it is kind of scary to think that if he didn't get set back helping someone earlier in the marathon, he would have been there when the explosion happened...

One of the sad things about what happened is the whole terrorism thing, it is kind of sad but understandable that my mom basically never wants to go to Boston again and was pretty reasonably pissed when someone offered to bring my 14 year old brother to Boston a few days later...

There are some interesting conspiracies about this

There were a ton of people all in black wearing punisher caps and its rumoured that they are apart of an special agent group called Craft and a group of these guys should have been noticed. So basically they are saying it was all a set up and the two boys were hired to be used in a stage terrorist attack. Also there is speculation that the image of the older brother with his wounds does not look like the photos of him boxing at all. They used a witness's quote on the news as always they show a photo and play an audio clip describing the incident and the photo was of someone who had died in a school attack. Could have been an image error but still.
Lastly, I heard a tape of a police commissioner referring to the bombers as "actors" and quickly correcting himself after.

I'm sure it's all bullshit but it's definitely very peculiar. This kind of thing can drive someone nuts

He was probably using the word actor as in someone who does some act and changed it so people wouldn't say dumb shit like that.

My initial thought on the boston bombings was either (since there was a demolition nearby) that someone ran off with the explosives from the demolition site or it was a setup/staged.

I can't verify this but with all the crazy stuff that has been going on, all the conspiracies against them all (like the shootings) it just makes me wonder if any of it's true or it happened for real. Personally i think America needs to get it's act together and start helping out one another. There are plenty of people out on the street, people that are struggling to make ends meet (including me, living on bi-weekly paychecks). I can only hope that one day the American people will wake up and realize that the more generous you can be with your resources the less these problems will arise.
