Prayers for the victims, their families, and the first responders rushing to the scene.

It's April 15 - tax day. My money is on an anti-government terrorist, most likely extreme right wing, along the lines of McVeigh. He chose the most visible large crowd at midday on tax day.

This is going to be interesting.

Prayers to the victims and their families.

A third device was found unexploded? This sounds sophisticated. Stay safe all first responders.

Update 4:07 p.m.: Newtown families were reportedly seated in the VIP section right by where the explosions went off. There's no word whether they are among the 23 injured and two dead from the explosions.

IMO, from the color and sound from TV and the ripping off of limbs, I am thinking this was a high level type detonation not the typical home brew explosive. Of course I am ready to be corrected, just a limited amount of experience talking.

Sean, you might as well start prepping now for all the stupidass threads that our resident conspiracy jerkoffs will be starting for years to come.

That was my thoughts as well, especially since information suggests the devices were stashed in trash cans. Though I'll fully admit my experience is limited to military explosives, and not anything homebrew.

It just seems like the signature of a high order detonation to me. But I'm not as experienced as many and am just going on first blush.
