Amazing close up footage of the bomb. This footage is not from News stations but from a spectator at the event You could hear the blast of the bomb.
Raw footage video taken at the Boston Marathon today where the explosions took place.
Right after 3:00 PM EST, 2 explosions took place near the end of the route of the Boston Marathon. There were 13 seconds between the explosions. and a distance of 550 feet apart. The first to explode was the one by the finish line. Many of the runners who were crossing at the time of the explosions were running for charities.
As of about 7:30 PM there are an estimated 100 people injured and 2 deaths. Apparently one of the two people killed was an 8 year old child.
According to the Boston Police Chief, there was no known threat before explosions at marathon.
Runners who had not finished the race were stopped before the Massachusetts Avenue overpass on Commonwealth Avenue.
Apparently there are some right wing extremist conspiracy theorists already laying blame of the bombing on the federal government. Their birther conspiracies didn't work out, so they are jumping on new ones. Other right wing noise sources are picking up and carrying this crap.
While most observers are witholding judgment about what caused the two explosions at the Boston Marathon this afternoon, right-wing conspiracy theorists already know what’s going on — the government did it and is going to pin the blame on them because today is Patriots’ Day, a special day in the militia movement.
More on the conspiracists, and debunking their nonsense.
