Gary, all I'm hearing is speculation and rumors. Have you or anyone heard anything concrete as to what happened? Don't know if Y'all know it or not but one of our members, GearheadsLife, was doing volunteer work at the Marathon and I haven't seen him post anywhere today. Thoughts and prayers go out for those involved, their families and the ones that are helping them.

It will be some time before they know who did this with any certainty. I understand Gary's feeling on this, but expect that any immediate response would most likely be mis-directed. The fact that two of the devices were found before they were detonated will be very helpful in determining who did this.

this is not to far from me and the scanner is going nuts. 2-3 dead and several critically hurt. Bombs were loaded with ball bearings. Several survivors lost limbs. Cell service shut down to prevent more bomb detonations, Logan airport is in lock down. It is a real mess right now. My daughter was a block from where this happened. Thank god she is ok.

Just too much, what sick bastards would do this? I am thinking it's a conspiracy nut job living in his mothers basement. But that's just my guess right now, I don't believe it's international.

Sad, very sad.

I think it's domestic like the Unabomber Ted Kaczynski, Timothy McVeigh and the like. Unfortunately our freedoms that we enjoy are taken advantage of by the mentally ill of this ilk.

I spent 5 years as an engineer In the armed forces. I have cleaned up more of these messes than I care to count. Everyone that I deployed to had only one thing in common, and that was countless unsuspecting victims whos lives were lost or changed in one quick cowardly explosion.

I hope everyone stays patient as the research and investigation takes place so that we don't waste our rage and resources on the wrong targets. Our EOD engineers are skilled and professional. They will likely find out who is responsible but it will take time. But as soon as we are sure strike back furiously!

In the meantime we owe our sensitivity to the victims and families of this horrible event.

My thoughts go out to them........

That is my guess as well, just based on how unimproved the detonations were. However, I only came to that opinion from media based video. So take it with a grain of salt.

just a hunch

Well I just heard from my buddy, Mark, that was working the Marathon and here's what he's said so far.


Mark says:
was 25 feet from blast #1..
2 confermed dead one a 8y/o kid
over 100 hurt 50 very very bad, like missing legs, etc.
2 blast happened not long after 1st..

the 3rd was the police setting on the one they found. they have found at least 4 more..
they shut down all cell service so they could not set off anymore..

(here's what he said concerning the ball bearings)
not some... many.. sadly..
I'm shaking so bad..
'm not good with blood and having to help the med.. wasn't good, but you don'y think about that then,, but it's hitting me now..


He's lucky to be alive, God Bless Ya, Mark !

I just found out that another good friend of mine, who is a professional pilot for a large Corp. was there also and here's what he just posted.

I was standing about 1/2 block from the VIP stands about 5 minutes before the first blast, then headed out because of the crowd. When the 1st one went off, I was about a block away, and the 2nd caught me about 1-1/2 blocks away. It looked like those New York 911 films...I hugged a building to keep from getting ran over by the panicked people running from the scene......prayers for the victims, for sure.
