    Well, let's see. People who are prejudiced against right wingers have decided that right wing terrorist groups are responsible for this. People who are prejudiced against Muslims have decided that Muslims are responsible. People who are prejudiced against left wingers have decided that left wing terrorists are responsible. And so on.

    The reporting on this is predictably horrible. They started off just throwing numbers about with no facts whatsoever. Now we are in here speculating on this which is what people in forums do... but it's all based off all this terrible reporting.

    141 injured, like what 4-5 dead (I haven't kept up) in one of the largest cities in America during one of the most anticipated and participated of events is said city. If one wanted to reap more carnage, one surely could have. This is poor planning and poor chemistry. Not that I wish it were more, but as a statement of fact.

    Anyone who has already decided that X group of persons is responsible for this is an idiot.

    I stopped watching pretty early after I got home from work. They were just looping all that footage that they should not be running on non-stop loops. I read some things after 9/11 that said them doing that was probably a bad thing for most people.
