There are sick people in this world...all they care about is $$.

There are always fake donations accounts made after a disaster or tragedy. It's really sad.

Listening to TSN1050 (Toronto) as Team1200 is junk outside of game broadcasts, Naylor and company talking about this, very sober broadcast.

I'll wait until there's verification that this was a planned attack, or whether it was a gas line explosion.

Expecting the former, sadly. Here's hoping the death toll doesn't exceed two, but that looks like wishful thinking.

Someone on my twitter feed just said this;

Rich Laverty ‏@JournoRich 2s
Few people seem to have spotted someone stood on the roof of one of the buildings in this photo. Could be nothing https://pbs.twimg.com/media/BH6xXVUCQAELfrH.jpg

There were reports of a controlled explosion going off, but they were saying it was across the street from the library I believe. I also saw reports of a fire at the library.

Exactly, the only stations not covering this are both in "".

Nobody gives a **** about the tambo situation right now, It's time to help and give out emergency numbers.

That is disturbing. My heart goes out to this guy, and all others affected by this today. Just a horrible world we live in.

Christ, 2 more bombs?

Obviously it's too early to say for sure, but the logical conclusion is that an organization was behind this. 4 large bombs planted by 1 person is highly unlikely.

I just love how ESPN is getting involved just because it happened at a sporting event.

If the Boston Police is telling people to evacuate the city, the Bruins game should be cancelled.

I just hope no one is going to use this as an excuse for racial attacks.
