http://news.yahoo.com/two-explosions-boston-marathon-finish-line-190259876--spt.html

Not a whole lot of information out there, I'm hearing reports of 20-30 casualties, no count on how many of those are dead or wounded yet.

Two explosions, seconds apart, at the Boston Matrathon finish line.  Several injured, including at least one cop.  Details sketchy.

stay safe.

Mods - go ahead and move it to politics if you must, but I'd like to see how long it can stay focused as a news story.

I have a friend whose wife is there running. He's ok, but he can't find his wife. Cell phones are useless right now.

Praying...

Completely not a surprise that the cell networks are down. Hope he finds her soon and uninjured.

The competitor tracker showed her at midway through the course, so if the tracker is accurate she should be okay

I'll let you know

Hoping she's OK.

Hearing now they've found a third bomb and are debating if it's safest to move, deactivate, or do a controlled explosion in place.

The news reported a third explosion and it was reported as a controlled explosion in a cleared area.

Current reports are devices that are unexploded. If so, there was significant planning for this attack. (Not that two devices with one timed to drive more people towards the second explosion does not involve planning.)

Multiple devices, coordinated effort... Whether the source is domestic or foreign, this is very bad.

No, but a third means that much more. And quite possibly more than one nut job.

Which on that note, is it wrong that I'm already hoping it's not some domestic whack job? Because something about tax day in Boston seems to be just a little to convenient FU and your excessive taxes gesture  undecided

Indeed. I will note that this is a common Al Queda tactic. (I.e. multiple devices, driving the crowd toward the bigger bomb.)

Not that other groups can't learn from those tactics, but it may suggest an Al Queda attack.

Suggesting some sort of bitterclinger anarchopatriot is going to bomb marathon runners as a tax protest?

Doesn't further an agenda.  Other than deliberate New England style nannystatism.

An IRS building, Congress, FBI HQ, something like that makes sense for that sort of allegation.  Not a sporting event of international repute.

No. But people who set off pop shots aren't often the most rational folk.

Could be a spurned Kenyan lover/ex foe all we know right now. My question is how closely details of the investigation will be held a la Benghazi, Newtown, et al. to control the narrative going forward.

I find it intresting. I've flipped through three diffrent channels (abc, cbs and nbc) and the reporters are being very careful about making absolute statements.

Which is a complete 360 from the last big news story that they broadcasted live.

That would be a 180 - but we know what you mean.

Or did the solar flare last night screw up geometry as well as the Northern Lights?

Best live feed coverage I can find http://live.boston.com/Event/Live_blog_Explosion_in_Copley_Square

Seemingly reliable reports of two more unexploded IED's, and ball bearings on the street near the explosions. The two we know of were near the medical aid tent. Suggestive of coordinated anti-personnel attack. I'm hoping the evacuation routes aren't mined.
