It could have been someone who was just plain bored. Some men just want to watch the world burn.

Apparently a nearby security camera had footage of the guy planting the bombs:

They won't say anything more about it, though. Hopefully they'll have him in custody soon.

Domestic terrorists are more likely to target soft targets that represent multi-culturalism, like sporting events where Kenyans and Ethiopians tend to win. Could be some tea-party nut-job, especially considering that it's a Boston (like the original tea party) event promoting brotherhood to all nations.


It may just be that the terrorist didn't have the resources to hit a major target, and thus went for whatever would get the largest body count. That said, if you don't have the information needed to narrow down the suspect list, the statistical likelihood is that it's a white supremacist or something in a similar vein.

This doesn't seem like the KKK's work or any type of Neo-Nazi group. As far as I know those two groups mainly focus on killing individual people rather than large groups of people. For the most part they think of themselves as vigilantes, picking off evil jews, non-whites and homeschoolers before they can corrupt white people. Of course Neo-nazis and the KKK aren't totally cohesive groups so take that with a grain of salt.

I personally think this was done by someone like the Black Trenchcoat Mafia. The Boston Marathon would probably have money going to charities and the like. The Ku Klux Klan for the most part is patriotic, besides having a black socialist muslim president. I think that they would prefer to blow up the only black family in an all white neighbourhood than the Boston Marathon.

Only 3 people died, and at the same time 120 people died in Africa of aids. Yeah, we have our priorities straight.

My previous hypothesis of you has been proven. You're retarded.

If you want to actually make that argument, you'd point out that there's an ongoing bombing wave in Iraq which has already claimed over 50 lives that nobody's talking about.

WTF that 4chan post... You reload with smokeless gunpowder, not black powder, they are totally not the same! (although you could reload a handful of rounds, like .38, or the many and varied shotgun shells, which were originally black powder rounds with it if you had to, but jesus christ why would you want to?

This is pretty cool crowdsourced stuff though, I suppose we'll find out if the FBI agrees with these guys soon enough.

There were three deaths because there were doctors handy to stop the bleeding of all the people who lost arms or legs. Those same doctors said that many people were very close to dying. Just pointing that bit out.

Apparently the shooters in Boston are the same people. One of the two suspects has been killed, the other is on the run.

For the sake of everyone in Boston I hope this ends soon.

Larry Aaronson,
:pedo:
a retired social studies teacher at Cambridge Rindge and Latin School,
said he knows Dzhokhar A. Tsarnaev, 19, who graduated from the school last year.
Mr. Aaronson lives on Norfolk Street, on the Cambridge-Somerville border, a few houses from the Tsarnaevs.

Mr. Aaronson said even though he is retired he still spends a lot of time at the school, taking pictures of events.

He was a very photogenic kid,” he said of Dzhokhar. “He had a heart of gold.”

Yeah, that's the part that freaks me out the most. What happened to my leg isn't anywhere NEAR what happened to a lot of these people, and that whole experience has completely changed my life. Forever. It almost killed me, and I can't imagine how godawful these people must feel. I'm still haunted by that day, and here are these people who had their legs literally blown out from under them.

He went boating, like many people in New England.

Sadly his trip didn't go too well.
