Doubt that would be fun.
Whoever did this almost certainly deserves those things, however solving a problem of violence with further violence doesn't seem to be working out very well for us as a society.

I will. My work is closed until they finish processing the crime scene. I work 2 blocks down from the 1st bombing. We didn't hear it and had no idea what was going on until we got texts/phone calls.

Terrifying.

I can't even imagine.

Is cell phone reception still shut down there? I want to contact some of my relatives but I'm not sure if the call will make it through.

All NHL, NBA and MLB games seem to be cancelled in Boston for now.

Realized a few hours later that my cousin now lives in Boston.

She texted me back though, everything is good.

True, but that's one of the saddest facts of humankind. The extent to which someone or a group of people is willing to murder others at the expense of some form of message is disheartening.

What's even more disheartening, is that we've come to expect this kind of atrocity during times or events dedicated to helping others. There doesn't seem to be an excuse that can hold back this type of violence anymore. Not even children are spared.

This is the little guy (Martin Richard) that was killed in this attack. His mother and sister have were also injured in the attack.
story about it: http://www.nydailynews.com/news/nati...icle-1.1317909


After the Trayvon Martin shooting, he made this sign.

Small world. I'm two degrees of separation from both adults who were killed, apparently (for totally different reasons).

Which, I suppose makes all of us 3rd degrees of separation from there.

Really is a small world.

It is disheartening, but sometimes it's the only way a person or group can get attention directed towards their message(s). It's really no surprise, to me anyways, that things like this happen.

Looking at major events of terrorism in the past, no event is off limits. It's sad, but when events like this get bombed, it draws peoples attention, which is the intent IMO. I don't think this was done just to injure and kill people. If this is indeed 100% terrorism, they have goals that are religious, political, or ideological - it wasn't just for fun or because they hate the US/government, IMO.

I don't think they just decide to invade because of a terrorist act.

Afghanistan was invaded because those responsible for financing and planning had set up shop there.

If it was done for religious, political or ideological reasons then whoever is responsible has done an abysmal job of getting their views out there in relation to the attack.

Nobody has claimed responsibility, nevermind linked the attack to a specific belief or worldview..

So that is suspect 2. You can't see suspect 1's face too clearly but this guy's you can.


Also, anyone else think he looks like Tanev?

So that's what Tanman has been up to.

And yes, that's the first thing I thought of too when I saw the picture.
