I hope there are not any other devices planted around Boston, DC or anywhere else.  Watch out people!

You serious!  Nothing on the news yet, except another controlled detonation by SWAT.  Is that the location of the first two bombs?

More then likely was a home growing terrorist attack...

I HIGHLY doubt that North Korea had anything to do with this. It's possible, but incredibly unlikely. This was most likely done by homegrown terrorists, or someone trying to send a message.

I Think its Domestic Terrorism, i Just heard that a Guy in a "Penske Truck" was asking to get into the area of the Triage center saying that it was full of "Medical equipment" and when they cop turned him down he pulled off and got out of sight and now theyre looking for the truck.

No, it most likely wasn't North Korea. lol Probably a middle eastern terrorist group or anti-government U.S. terrorist group as said above. The latest reports from New England's Channel 5 news says that 2 bombs went off, a third was a controlled explosion, two more bombs have been discovered and are being dealt with by the Boston Bomb Squad, 3 people are dead, and there are conflicting reports as to how many are injured. I've heard 5, I've also heard 60. We won't know until the end of the day. The first two bombs contained ball bearings, probably meaning that the police will be looking at local hardware stores purchase records to see if some people bought a large quantity of them recently.

This hits me hard, even though I don't live there.  I've been to Boston a few times, only reason I did because my dad did the marathon.  We didn't go this year, so this is a shock to me!

You're lucky Custo. Also I just saw a thread in the GTA IV section about some kind of a LCPDFR tribute... NicolaiB closed it literally seconds before I was done typing but I wanted to say to anybody thinking about any kind of a "tribute":

The citizens of Massachusetts (myself among them) haven't even determined exactly what happened, who's responsible or who's even dead or injured yet. Cut that crap out and leave us alone until everything's over. It's disrespectful. Nobody did a 9/11 tribute during the evening of the attacks.

The tribute thing was way to soon and disrespectful in my opinion.  I didn't even read it, but still.

 

I hope it doesn't get worse over there.  It's a great city, and a great race.  Some of my dads friends did do this years Boston Marathon, thankfully none of them were there during the explotions.  I just hope everyone else who was injured by the explotion will have a quick recovery.

 

I also hope everyone stays safe there.

 

No work tomorrow

What.
