    Blitzer now reports 49 injured and again says some have critical injuries. Cops said it was well planned event or coordinated event. But thats not with the Feds or anyone else coming in to validate.

    Edit: they are also Evacuating another JFK place in Cambridge Mass.....due to the Library getting hit.

    Hi Lady P !!

    IMO We are lawless 3rd world in some of the neighborhoods,

    does'nt take much to get it out to the rest of us.

    To me the best thing to do is to continue to do whatever you do.

    If you want to go to a game,go. if you want to go to the park,go.

    Worrying about these idiots isn't a good thing to do.

    Unless someone claims responsibility for the attack or some kind of evidence is found quickly (security camera footage of someone doing something etc.) it will take some time for the information to be compiled by the NSA and FBI if this was a foreign or domestic terrorist action to see who the possible culprits are and draw down the list from there.

    Some people are being pretty disgusting in this thread, I'll say no more since Zyphlin has already covered it (and it's not my place) but my heart goes out to the victims today, especially those of the two deceased, hope we hear of no more....

    And so let's all take a deep breath and wait for more information to become available.

    they are trying their best. i'm listening to CNN and the Wolf.

    CNN reporting nearing 50 injured, so i don't like saying this, but most likely there are more dead then just two.

    Personally I'd rather accept a certain level of violence than live in a police state.

    Anyone with access to fertilizer (a common material) and diesel fuel (a common material) and shrapnel (most anything will do, metal scraps say) and a modicum of know-how can make a bomb that will do extensive harm.


    Do you have any suggestions as to how we could guarantee such things cannot happen? (short of an Orwellian state where "Big Brother" is always watching you...)

    There are more dead. I think we'll have to wait a while to get the final number. Some injuries were very serious.
