The police were there forcing everyone to keep away. There's nothing he could do.

Please. They've made mistakes but they haven't botched a story for a while now.

CNN is still the best cable news network out there. This isn't really the time to debate merits of journalistic institutions, though.

My god, just the sound of the concussion of those bombs going off are chilling to hear.

Could be a domestic or foreign attack, either way just sickening.

Depends on what you mean botched. Remember the Steubenville case?

How do you know what they are reporting isnt true? Just cause nobody has come out and confirmed it yet?

Those numbers sound a lot more believable then what is being reported elsewhere unfortunately.

The police Commish isnt saying anything at all.

No doubt about it. One person building this many large devices and distributing them across such a wide area, timed to go off in such close coordination... that's far fetched. This was 99% likely to be the work of a group that had access to the materials and expertise, and enough people to coordinate the placement of the explosives.

The question now is whether it's foreign or domestic.

So, there's been a total of 4 explosions so far?

2 near the finish line
1 in the library
1 controlled explosion

Mayor or Governor saying there's been multiple reported 'parcels' around the area. Stay away.

Complete shock and disbelief most likely. It happens to the best of folks. 'Deer in the headlights' syndrome.

Are there two explosions in the video? I've only heard one.

Yes, 4 explosions.

They are treating each bag that anyone may have dropped as a suspicious parcel.

They mangled the new town thing pretty badly.

With half the devices not even going off I'm doubting this is a true organized terror cell. Feels more like an ambitious garage plan.

Both Fox and MSNBC are worlds better than CNN. Mod or not I think this is being a bit ridiculous with your obsession with CNN.


With that being said, you have to wonder if there are any more bombs out there that haven't gone off yet. Scary stuff.
