pathetic.


There are sometimes where I really want to just ignore the first amendment and restrict those people from such things. It's more pathetic that they won't learn how stupid and worthless they are until they become very old.

agreed, dude

I am sickened to see people at a high point of their life hurt or killed with a pure and random hate. How can humans hate like this? To view the taking of life as a tool of communication. To murder in order to "make a point".

White House confirms Obama to address the nation at 6:10 PM ET about situation in Boston.

Terrible event. Especially at a marathon where people are just about to cross the finish line and feel the feeling of victory. Even worse, one of the victims killed has been reported to be a 8 year-old kid.

I have decided to put on a blindfold and blast music into my ears. I'm just going to pretend I don't live in the same planet as these things... whatever they are that did this.

I will agree with the poster who said that it's likely that because bombings are so frequent they are not covered in countries like Afghanistan, Pakistan, Kirghistan, etc.

Think about how often something like this happens to America.

Rarely.

Perhaps that's why BBC is so interested.

An orchestrated event, yet no one or group has claimed responsibility. I very much would like to know the motives behind the attack, but again no suspects and no demands or threats. I have already seen many illogical or outlandish claims in the comments section of several sites: Random domestic terrorism, false flag operation, or blame it on Arabs and Jews, and now possible affiliations to Adult Swim cartoons are the suspect...take your pick. Unfounded claims with questionable veracity.

Also, is Youtube even considered a credible source?

Yes, I don't know what the idiot up there is talking about. The YouTube uploader that he links sounds like a retard as well. He just repeats information from websites then doesn't make a logical conclusion + tries to act like he's smart or something by simply speculating. Just had the biggest scare because a friend has a family member who works at the marathon every year at the finish line to support runners.

Let's call it a hoax when there are actual deaths.

- Witnesses Describe Scene of Carnage
- http://www.nytimes.com/2013/04/16/us/witnesses-describe-scene-of-carnage-after-blasts-at-boston-marathon.html


BOSTON — Roupen Bastajian, a state trooper from Rhode Island, was receiving his finisher’s medal after the completing the Boston Marathon when he heard an explosion behind him. He thought it was a cannon, something ceremonial. He turned and saw the second blast, and ran toward the white smoke, hoping to help anyone he could.

“I ran over there and there were at least 40 people that I saw on the ground, some without legs,” said Mr. Bastajian, 35. “It’s bad, it’s bad.”

“These runners just finished and they don’t have legs now,” he said. “So many of them. There are so many people without legs. It’s all blood. There’s blood everywhere. You got bones, fragments. It’s disgusting. It’s like a war zone.”
