Al Terzi (news reader) is aghast that the Bomb Scene is being 'treated as a crime scene because there might be more bombs in the area'.
The idiot. It's a crime scene because A Bomb went off.

I guess the Homeland Security has dropped out of the news, so they needed to punch-it-up some.

Yes right at the finish line of the Boston Marathon.

Two explosions at Boston marathon finish line

Developing story

BOSTON (AP) Two explosions shattered the euphoria of the Boston Marathon finish line on Monday, sending authorities out on the course to carry off the injured while the stragglers in the 26.2-mile trek from Hopkinton were rerouted away from the smoking site of the blasts.

Competitors and race organizers were crying as they fled the chaos. Bloody spectators were being carried to the medical tent that had been set up to care for fatigued runners.

"There are a lot of people down," said one man, whose bib No. 17528 identified him as Frank Deruyter of North Carolina. He was not injured, but marathon workers were carrying one woman, who did not appear to be a runner, to the medical area as blood gushed from her leg. A Boston police officer was wheeled from the course with a leg injury that was bleeding.

About three hours after the winners crossed the line, there was a loud explosion on the north side of Boylston Street, just before the photo bridge that marks the finish line. Another thunderous explosion could be heard a few seconds later.

Runner Laura McLean of Toronto said she heard two explosions outside the medical tent.

"There are people who are really, really bloody," McLean said. "They were pulling them into the medical tent."

Cherie Falgoust was waiting for her husband, who was running the race.

"I was expecting my husband any minute," she said. "I don't know what this building is ... it just blew. Just a big bomb, a loud boom, and then glass everywhere. Something hit my head. I don't know what it was. I just ducked."

My cousin was running the marathon, and was close to the explosion, but she's okay. I haven't seen her in years, but it really reminded me how blood is thicker than water. It was just a tragedy to me until I found that out. Now my heart is racing, my emotions are on edge.

It's all terrible, nonetheless.

Okay watching FOX now, but why are they certain it was a bombing? Because there were two at two locations, basically? I just read they found another bomb?

It just happened less than an hour ago or so, I don't think there's going to be any death tolls or news on who or what the cause is.

3 confirmed dead. Explosions roughly 45 mins ago.

Nothing on why, how or who. Threat not neccesarily over, evacuations still ongoing.


* Apparently there are ball bearings found everywhere, typically with bombings like this *

They're heavily searching trashcans, apparently the bombs where in trashcans. No cellular traffic is allowed since it could set off a potential left bomb.
