Multiple people dead today after explosions at Boston Marathon

Recommended Posts

As many of you know, 1Emulation has users from all across the globe.

 

We are shocked and saddened by the travesties that occurred in Boston, Massachusetts today. As of this writing, at least two are dead, including an 8-year old boy, and 132+ injured from 2 blasts that occurred on the Boston Marathon strip near the finish line. Our thoughts and prayers are with those affected by this tragedy.

 

For those of you not familiar with the story, here is what we know so far:

3 dead (2 adults and a child). It seems pointless though, what was the bomber trying to prove? Has anyone claimed responsibility? At first glance it would appear to be some amateurish home-grown effort.

That's what baffles me the most. Nobody has claimed responsibility yet and it's been over 24 hours.

 

Today, they found how the bombs were made:

Pictures of the 8-year old who died were released today:

The first comment said it best: "The thing that upsets me most about this is that this was meant to be a happy day. The father of Martin would finish the race, they'd probably all hug and smile and there would be pictures. Maybe they'd go out for a nice meal at a restaurant to celebrate him completing the marathon. But no. Some selfish, violent, stain on humanity had to take all of that away from him. And for what? What does bombing people achieve. Someone will die because of this, either a drone strike or a lethal injection. More pain, more suffering, and for nothing. I truly hope this guy's wife pulls through and they can begin to rebuild their lives in peace." - Karate-do

 

And finally, Craig Ferguson said it best in the opening monologue on his show:

Pretty much represents the general consensus and anger at the people who perpetrated this horrible crime against humanity.

I am very interested in seeing what The President does about this. Not that what he does will have any effect on his career since he cannot be elected again. Will he though be know as The President who was too pussy footed to do anything about it or will he be know for the one who makes the once responsible pay for their crimes. I have always said that if we keep letting in the people who hate us and there are a lot who do....they burn are flags and spit at our faces....they will cause much pain to the people of The United States of America. I am all for freedom and for people coming here to experience that but don't blame us if one day you cannot come here so freely as you use to. Blame your people for making this so.

Try England under the wankathon known as the EU.

Islam gets it owns way all of the time, they even allow sharia law courts to operate.

Anyone speaks up about this the socialists fucking mantra our asses back to the stone age, cunts.

That could easily have been a false flag operation meant to rally the public opinion behind anything the administration planned to pass these days.

Opportunism will reach critical mass. Maybe the best chance legislation like CISPA will ever have to be passed, while the public is distracted.

Not sure what's going on but this reddit livethread is on fire with updates.

Apparently the Boston incident and a shootout at MIT were related and the cops are chasing armed carjackers and finding xplosives fricking everywhere.

Some more action. Seems the suspects were indeed the culprits (one dead) and half the state's police is giving chase GTA-style (6 stars so far, no tanks or jets called in yet).

HOLY SHIT. Marathon suspect in car chase -- Explosives been thrown + shots fired! (Stream broadcast via radio)
