There is a lot of misinformation being put out there, but this Reddit thread does a great job of giving advice and keeping everything organized in one place.

re: Update: Second Boston Marathon Suspect Captured

It says alot about people when you have people running to help hearing another bomb going off but they still run in not knowing what may come next. Also this is a clip I read this morning.

By Tracy Connor and Elizabeth Chuck, NBC News
Those wounded in the Boston Marathon bomb attack included two brothers who went to cheer on a friend, and each lost a leg, their mother told the Boston Globe.

Agreed. There's a clip of police, soldiers, EMTs, race workers, and spectators tearing away the fences and guardrails trying to get to the injured just moments after the blast that makes me tear up every time I see it. These people just instantly decided to do whatever they could out of instinct and it's just amazing to me.

There is definitely a lot of evil out in the world but every time something like this happens it proves that there are even more heroes waiting to do the right thing.

Boston. ****ing horrible.

I remember, when 9/11 went down, my reaction was, "Well, I've had it with humanity."

But I was wrong. I don't know what's going to be revealed to be behind all of this mayhem. One human insect or a poisonous mass of broken sociopaths.

But here's what I DO know. If it's one person or a HUNDRED people, that number is not even a fraction of a fraction of a fraction of a percent of the population on this planet. You watch the videos of the carnage and there are people running TOWARDS the destruction to help out. (Thanks FAKE Gallery founder and owner Paul Kozlowski for pointing this out to me). This is a giant planet and we're lucky to live on it but there are prices and penalties incurred for the daily miracle of existence. One of them is, every once in awhile, the wiring of a tiny sliver of the species gets snarled and they're pointed towards darkness.

But the vast majority stands against that darkness and, like white blood cells attacking a virus, they dilute and weaken and eventually wash away the evil doers and, more importantly, the damage they wreak. This is beyond religion or creed or nation. We would not be here if humanity were inherently evil. We'd have eaten ourselves alive long ago.

So when you spot violence, or bigotry, or intolerance or fear or just garden-variety misogyny, hatred or ignorance, just look it in the eye and think, "The good outnumber you, and we always will."

No unexploded bombs at Boston Marathon, Massachusetts Governor says - ESPN Boston


So that report that there were other bombs was bogus. Even reports that the police did a controlled detonation of said devices. Mass media is shitty to say the least. They should endure fines for this type of reporting.



Eight-year-old marathon victim’s mother severely injured


Breaks my heart to see stuff like this. RIP

With any major tragedy info flies around fast and furious. It's awfully hard to weed out all the inaccurate info in the midst of the initial chaos.

Not to long ago a News Networks would verify something before they put it out to the public. With the race to be the first they have thrown integrity out the window. I don't blame the blogs but the major networks should use better judgement.

I was watching something the other night about when Reagan got shot. In the intial news reports there was all sorts of misinformation. Some initial reports said he wasn't hit and was ok.

I think most networks were pretty careful yesterday in stressing when reports weren't completely verified.

I'm sure some have seen the horrific pictures of the guy being push in the wheel chair with what appears to be both legs missing and with the look of total shock on his face. The guy running next to him in the cowboy hat is Carlos Arredondo. It turns out that Carlos was pinching the artery of the guys leg shut to stop the bleeding. Not sure if the guy ended up making it but Carlos definitely gave him a chance. Thank God for people like that.
Some reports say he was actually holding the tourniquet tight on his leg. Either way I agree the guy deserves major props for helping out like he did.

Maybe its been the case but latly it seems they are throwing out any info they obtain by any source.

Yesterday the NY Post had 12 people dead about an hour after the explosion.

The Post is a rag. They definitely give news outlets a bad name with their reporting yesterday.

Yeah, typicially i feel like they say "we are hearing that...." or "weve gotten reports that......".

I think its pretty obvisous when news shows are reporting unconfirmed information. Theres a lot of confusing when something like this happens, as long as a news outlet isnt making things up or offering unfounded specualitive opinion, i think its the right approach.

re: Update: Second Boston Marathon Suspect Captured

I hate to guess, but whats the feeling: Domestic or act of a foreign terrorist? At first, the simultaneous explosion and the reported possible cell phone use to detonate the bomb, possible saudi aprehended lead me to believe your foreign terrorist. But in the back of my mind, patriots day, got me thinking this is domestic.
