    I'm quoting this rather than issuing anything right now because this is how I personally feel. Not good.
    Neither side in an argument can find the truth when both make an absolute claim on it.

They don't need to just find out when the explosives were planted, but see if anyone was aware it was going to occur.

    I wonder how much evidence was created from the blast. If they can recover parts from the explosives...timers, switches, wires, fuses, anything of that nature. If it was (as is being suggested by the media morons)...the cell phones being shut off may be indicative of the type used...but cell phone bombs concern me. That means some time and effort went into this. Someone had some form of technical knowledge using a cell phone...but at the same time it honestly is not that hard to create a bomb. It depends on the type of explosive...and not so much on the ignition switch.
    This is why I have no problem with surveillance cameras -- I wonder how many they have in the downtown area -- by law enforcement and individual businesses. I hope they catch the son of a bitch(es). Soon.

    I also think law enforcement should be telling people who were taking pictures in that area all day long to look carefully at their pictures and, if they see anything suspicious, to report it to the tip line. With all the digital media out there during this event, we probably have a picture of the guy(s) somewhere.

    I've talked to some, not all, but so far only one person is going to the hospital. It sounds like her parents want her to go because she is pretty cut up, but nothing overly serious. She and her boyfriend are going to a hospital outside the city because all the ones in the city are packed.

    I believe the HSD began regulating and the NSA began monitoring Ammonium Nitrate sales in 2012. So it's not that easy to get in sufficient quantities without attracting notice.

    Absolutely. Check hotels along the route as well. Elevated positions that can observe the bombs. I wonder if it were possible to cross the street anywhere along the route?

    I have some issues with surveillance equipment everywhere, but not so much within cities for the exact same reason. I agree. Police need to encourage photo observation as well as videos to be published. If this person was good they could avoid detection regardless of the number of cameras...but big breaks can occur.
    The Crowd is not the sum of its parts.
