So today was the Boston marathon, and two bombs went off. Right now there are 2 dead and 23 injured. A third bomb went off at the JFK library in Dorchester about an hour later. No injuries or deaths at the third one as of the moment. This is pretty messed up they don't know if it was terrorist or who it was. No groups have claimed it yet.

Latest report is that the Library had a Fire in the Mechanical room and NO explosive at all there!!

At least one Bomb was found that did not detonate. (Might be 2 of them)

 

Wish there was a way to Alter these type of "people" to prevent them from

doing anything like this!

JFK library was confirmed as a detonated device, not a mechanical fire. So far 3 bombs went off. They have found 2 others and pre-detonated them. They also found a suspicious duffel bag outside the hospital where many of the injured were taken. They found video at the mall of someone leaving a back[ac and running out. They sent in an EOD dog at the California Pizza Kitchen after chasing a suspect with a backpack

 

This is serious, it is most definitely a deliberate attack. 

 

So far 2 confirmed dead by Boston PD and 60+ injured including lost limbs. 

 

The mall is being cleared out

 

Here is a link to the live FD scanner

update from Boston Globe: 2 dead 90 injured

 

EOD approaching duffle bag near hospital, no confirmation on whether or not it's a device. 

 

Fox News says PD have someone "of interest" in custody, but it's Fox, no solid confirmation.

Boston PD denies having someone in custody. Way to go Fox, hyping everything up

It's a sad world we live in. Never understand why these things happen. Proves nothing other than how fragile life is.

There still claiming that there was an explosion at JFK they just don't know if it was a bomb or not. There have been 2 additional bombs found and disarmed. There also searching the entire 26 mile route for multiple packages found along the route.

Not so fast...

From the Dorchester Reporter:

"The director of the John F. Kennedy Presidential Library and Museum says that a 3 p.m. fire inside the building's mechanical room was not caused by a device and is apparently not related to the explosions at the Boston Marathon finish line.

Tom Putnam, the director of the JFK Library, said that the incident was confined to a mechanical room near the archive section of the library."
