Explosion at end of Marathon
 
The news is suggesting there has been an explosion near the end of the Boston Marathon.

Damnit man. Fox just showed video of a guy with the lower half of his leg blown off. One guy on video saying several dead. Looks like a ******* war zone.

They are saying they have emptied the grandstands, rerouted the runners who have not yet finished and used the medical tents to deal with some of the injured. Green line is closed in the area.

I had to rewind and pause to see if that's what I was actually seeing

absolutely sickening.

Just saw some of the photos of the carnage. It's **** I'd expect to see coming from the middle east or north africa, not here.

I think it was on the street level, outside, on the sidewalk, not inside the building.

Proof that eyewitness accounts are not reliable, guy on the phone on CNN from Boston said if he were to guess, it was a mile from the finish line, but it's obvious from the video that it was about 1/4 of a block before the finish line, if that much.

Altaris 04-15-2013 13:34

Pics of some of it here....

Fox News reporting monitoring of police scanners indicate all bomb squad personnel directed to area along with bomb sniffing dogs.

Not a hopeful sign..:shocked:

Check out the guy in the white jacket and red hat in the middle. Does it not look plausible that he's standing in the blood/guts of someone who was wearing a bomb?

Dennis in MA 04-15-2013 13:38

What the frick? I hate to say it, but this will be the push to finish gun control in MA. Because only guns can blow. . . Well, you know the rest.

Prayers for the victims. Ugh.

cowboy1964 04-15-2013 13:42

Maybe the chickens are coming home to roost, eh O?

Baba Louie 04-15-2013 13:44

Dear Lord, please help ALL those who need it. Amen.

Hope they find who planned this.

Today is Patriot's Day in Mass.

Patriots' Day is a civic holiday commemorating the anniversary of the Battles of Lexington and Concord, the first battles of the American Revolutionary War.

False flag so that it can be pinned on the Tea Party or similar. This could be Zero's "Reichstag fire".

Geko45 04-15-2013 13:49

Ughh, the ariel view looks grizzly. Doesn't seem like they know exactly what happened yet (whether it was intentional or accidental).

robbcayman 04-15-2013 13:49

Wow, that's crazy. So sad for all the victims.

Goldendog Redux 04-15-2013 13:51

Wtf...

harlenm 04-15-2013 13:52

fox reporting 3 dead.

Ian Moone 04-15-2013 13:53

One witness said he saw trash flying after the boom. Thinks the bomb was in a trash can.

cowboywannabe 04-15-2013 13:54
