Marathon is attacked by two bombs, dad wasn't running, some of my mother's coworkers were, apparently another one was supposed to go off a mile from my high school. Jesus Christ.

Wow that is so shocking

Thoughts and prayers with those who were killed and injured. :/ Stay inside, felt. Looks like the entire country is on lockdown.

Thanks Harry. They've officially confirmed that one of the dead is an eight-year-old. This is just an insane tragedy considering that this was random people getting the attack on them. Everyone I know is fine, but considering these were like 4 or 5 miles from my house, the explosion that happened a mile from my school(apparently not connected but. Can't be sure) and two from my house. This is a travesty and nothing less.

Hope to Boston.
I hope the person responsible feels the weight of what has happened today.

Yeah, that was a totally disgusting that to do. Hope justice is served.

Anyone who might have photos or videos of the marathon in Boston, send them in to the FBI! They need all the help they can get.

Yeah. That's utterly false. They've identified two of the dead and there's a description of the third. The WBC is gonna protest it with bs radicalism. This blows.

There's a petition on the whitehouse website to stop them. You should sign it

That petition has an end date a month away. I assume that the funerals will be before that. Boston won't let these people even remotely near the funerals. There's gonna be a mass protest in response to protest.

I sometimes think people should just ignore them. When nobody cares about them, they'll stop, right?

That won't stop them from harassing the families at the funerals though. It would be nice if it was that simple

Looks like they may have ID'd a suspect...

That wouldn't work JQ. They would just feel empowered that nobody would dare to stop them.

INSANE 24 hours.

Last night, a shootout killed an MIT cop and wounded a transit cop, while killing the older brother and bombing suspect #1.

Suspect 2 gets into a shootout with cops, and just about three or four minutes ago was placed under arrest.

First time in US history that we have ever placed a lockdown on an entire city.

Who needs a witty signature anyway?
