Yeah. They looked like IED's.

Some reports are calling it a terrorist attack.
Since the Boston Marathon celebrates Patriots Day, the marking of the beginning of the American Revolution, this may be homegrown.

I was thinking the same thing RPD. Ball bearings and shot being reported as the payload. Ive also heard the marathon was in remembrance of Sandy Hook. And with the way that legislation is going. I certainly would not put homegrown in the back burner.
Let's all not jump to conclusions, please. Let's just let the facts come as they do. While I agree this was an intentional event, let's not start pointing fingers until we have all the facts.
Boston Police Commissioner is saying a third IED was detonated at the JFK Library.
Two dead, 28 injured reported.
Problem with waiting for the offical events story you wont get the truth.
I couldn't believe that one of the people on the station I was watching had the balls to ask if it could be related to the pending gun control legislation????
I thought the news media was supposed to report the news not invent it!
While I agree that the veracity of "official event" does leave a lot to be desired, jumping to conclusions that it was "homegrown" or things of that nature right off the bat are a bit premature. I believe initial focus and thoughts should be with the victims and their families. Saying a prayer for all affected by this tragedy.
