    Re: Alert: Tax Day Explosions go off at Boston Marathon

    The Westboro Baptist Church rejoiced Monday’s bombing, announcing their plans to picket the funerals of those killed. “God sent the Boston Marathon Bombs for the sin of Massachusetts passing same-sex marriage,” the Westboro Baptist Church announced on Twitter. Another tweet announced, “Westboro Baptist Church to picket funerals of those dead by Boston Bombs!” The controversial church is well-known for protesting at the funerals of dead soldiers as well as regularly protesting at the funerals of those killed in shootings or, as seen on Monday, bombings. The group has been actively involved in protests and anti-gay actions since 1991. The Westboro Baptist church then tweeted that people can help in the explosion aftermath by reinstating the death penalty for gay people.

    At this point, I am of the opinion that this is an act of outside terrorists. But, it very well could be domestic terrorists, whether criminally insane, right wing militia typs, or a person(s) with a vindetta for how life is treating them. I do not believe that the government option to be a possibility at all.

    Re: Alert: Tax Day Explosions go off at Boston Marathon

    "If your experience and your expertise is Middle East terrorism, it has the hallmarks of al Qaeda or a Middle East group," former FBI Assistant Director Tom Fuentes said. "If your experience is domestic groups and bombings that have occurred here, it has the hallmarks of a domestic terrorist like Eric Rudolph in the 1996 Atlanta Summer Olympics bombings."

    Why would you think he's the suspect?

    Re: Alert: Tax Day Explosions go off at Boston Marathon

    CNN mistakenly reported the arrest today and that the suspect was on his way to the federal court house. At the same court house this afternoon a bomb threat forced an evacuation there. FBI in light of the court house threat the press conference that was scheduled for 5 PM was rescheduled till 8 and that too was cancelled. Most recent info is that they have identified a person of interest through surveillance camera footage from Lord & Taylor store across the street from the second blast. A lid from a pressure cooker, that was used as the bomb, was recovered from a roof of one the buildings on Boylston St. Supposedly they are claiming that there were no other undetonated devices found but I believe that they are with holding info about what was previously reported as this investigation is very active and ongoing.

    Re: Alert: Tax Day Explosions go off at Boston Marathon

    Thank you. I wasn't at the marathon this year but have been there many times in past years. and have walked those sidewalk many times. Don't believe I know any of the injured directly, however the 8 year old boy, Martin Richard, lived in my neighborhood. I had the day off and was hiking at Blue Hills nearly 10 miles south of the city and could hear the explosions, clearly, though I assumed it was thunder (which I thought was odd since it wasn't in the forecast) till my partner who was working at the marathon called me. I looked toward the city, and could still still see the cloud of smoke drifting past the skyline.


    There have been lot of false reports and claims in the media/online about possible suspects I am confident that the FBI will have answers soon and are working very hard to find the responsible persons. Try not to give much credit to the rumors and speculations out there. the man seen running with torn clothes as been determined to be a victim.

    Please consider helping if you can the governor and Boston's Mayor have set up The One Fund to help all those families effected. The One Fund

    Also is there anyway to change headline, Tax Day is the furthest thing on any ones mind here on PATRIOTS DAY!

    The Westboro Baptists have said they plan their protests here but there is NO way proud Bostonians will allow that.
