It will simply justify more of these being used to surveil lagitimate citizens.

My news channel says the bombs were 6 litre pressure cookers filled with ball bearings, shrapnel and other things so right there I will guarantee this is a homegrown attack. White male aged 45-60, Amercian born. Wait and see.


Seriously did you just say that?  That is a highly insensitive and racist sounding comment.   Maybe I'm misreading it, if I am let me know!

It was probably some idiot wanting to be a celebrity, so they decided this was the best way to do it. Seems they just wanted attention but I could be wrong.

Re: Tragedy at Boston Marathon

i havent watched the news since yesterday, but last i heard they said the person of interest was a middle-aged man dark skined or black who was acting suspicious and tried to get in to a restricted area, and when turned away he put his hood up acting like he was trying to hide his face.

can anyone fill me in on that if there has been any report on it?

Last time I heard this afternoon they raided his apartment to find any evidence. I heard that they did but they didn't explain what that evidence was.

it wasnt a raid.  They executed a search warrant Smiley Wink.   Whomever is calling it a raid is hyping the story.  I wrote something last night, this bombing really impacted me a lot.  I'll share it here but was thinking of making my own thread for it.

 

One more time the feeling flies

The anger so pungent when an American dies

Who, where, and why we not yet know

But if we find its time to ride I'll be the first to go


It was over a decade ago when I first geared up

When I asked for that leave of absence I was just a young pup

It was worth every second of that 4 years of hell

To know my fellow countrymen were home safe and well


Now that I see what I see on my screen

Its no 9/11 but I can't help but think thoughts that are mean

I'm not as young as I once was but I'm not too far on in years

The emotions coming back have dragged me to tears.


I know myself well and this feeling will lead to fight

I should just relax and maybe write a bit tonight

For its better to let the thoughts flow from a pen

Then to use force to release them once again.

I wrote that not to be racist or insensitive, but because it fits that profile. I really do not believe it was a foreigner at all. I have a hunch about this but could be completely wrong. If it was Al Qaeda or some radical group they would have claimed responsibility last night.. Radical Islamists want to die in the blast too because of that 21 virgins thing. Maybe it's a **bleep** off Veteran who picked up IED designs in the Middle East. I don't know what they use in Afganistan but I doubt pressure cookers are a common item over there. Then again you have to make due with what materials are available.

 

Instead we have no one claiming responsibility. This person or likely persons are watching every minute of news basking in their action. They probably were nearby at a safe distance when the bombs went off.

 

Plymco, I understand you're deeply impacted over this and my intention is not to offend anyone. I'm just putting my 2 cents in.
