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 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.

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

Not a hopeful sign..

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?

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.

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".

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

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