8:55 PM ET - Reuters: Boston police says at least three people have died from Boston Marathon explosions.


Wow, I thought it was more than that, judging by what people have been saying.
(Definitely not saying that three people dying isn't horrible - three people being killed is three too many).

Just want to emphasize that no one has been arrested yet. There is a person of interest being questioned at Brigham and Women's Hospital, supposedly because of their unusual behavior after the bombs went off. There are three dead thus far, but numerous wounded (many seriously) and several with amputated limbs. This was a sick act because this is a marathon and so many of the wounded suffered lost or severely injured legs.

there's already internet memes (jokes) posted about the tragedy.

pathetic.


And the mainstream media didn't waste time politicizing it. CNN was the first to do it.

sickening

Can i bring reality into this ... we are all to uneducated to really understand why this is going on ... Sure we all have opinions on why this happened , we can take a wild guess ... but this is so above our heads

Why would they bomb Spectators at a Sporting Event ( from what i saw and read the bombs were placed no where near the runners / oraganizers of the event ... correct me if i'm wrong ) ... what message does that send ... Why not a Army base / an oil refinery /a government building ( if it is terrorists ) ... and if it isn't a terrorists wtf is wrong with those people

You hit spectators to hammer home the idea that nowhere is safe. I'm sure there's all kinds of speculation as to why and by whom.

I'm also sure that sadly, there are any number of folks, Stateside and abroad, who will make political hay out of this.

My best wishes to those caught up in this.

Because of hatred. Because of greed. Because of a delusion. Because of revenge.

And much as I hate to say it, because of religion. Religion can inspire man to do great things, and can also inspire man to do terrible things.

Just like the Westboro Baptist Church. They're already petitioning to picket the victims' funerals.

"The bombs were filled with ball bearings that sprayed into the crowd when they exploded, law enforcement officials told NBC News. The dead included an 8-year-old boy, law enforcement officials said, and some victims lost limbs." - NBC news

Why a marathon, was the marathon supporting something that could have such a horrible response?
Maybe its another crazy person, influenced by media

This is just sad.

I hope everyone is okay and they catch the perpetrator.
