Why do you think it's tasteless? If people were joking about it, I could understand why you would find joking tasteless, but nobody appears to be joking.

Frankly, I'm of the opinion that this is completely blown out of proportion. Right before I read about the Boston Marathon explosions, I had read an article about how some 4 or 5 people were shot and killed in random acts of violence in Chicago; no great hue and cry there.

People expect that from Chicago.It is the land of Capone, and the St Valentine's Day Massacre. Boston is known for people dressing up as natives and throwing a tea party.

So, it is refined to refrain from commenting about possible origins of terrorism?

Why is seeking answers "tasteless"?

Are the FBI and other authorities tasteless when they ask similar questions?

Come on, BBS.
"CC InstaPoll - Predict the Cause of Marathon"

Anyway, I'm done with this topic.
Perhaps you have all just suppressed your compassion and respect for the victims or just plainly don't give a f*ck.
It's fine. You're just giving the terrorists what they want by making a spectacle of it, anyway.

Maybe I should really just be slapping saxi on the wrists... maybe you're all relatively innocent of what I think I'm judging you for - I haven't actually taken the time to see any of your responses to his thread.
But yeah, like I said. Done with the topic.
Renewed yet infused with apathy.
Let's just have a good time, all right?

Vote needs to close now anyway - BBC (amongst others) reporting that the two suspects being chased (and given the chain of events it looks likely they're the actual guys) are immigrants from Chechnya that have been living in the US for about a year - whether that makes it organised crime (russian mafia) or international terrorists is still unclear.

OK, the poll is now closed.

man, USA Today is gonna feel stupid if there's more than one Dzhokhar Tsarnaev in Boston ...

The surviving Boston bomb suspect has been identified as Dzhokhar A. Tsarnaev, 19, of Cambridge, Mass, according to the Associated Press.

An individual by the name of Dzhokhar Tsarnaev was a wrestler at the Cambridge Rindge and Latin School, in Cambridge, Mass. He was named a Greater Boston League Winter All Star in 2011.

Cambridge Rindge and Latin School did not respond to USA TODAY's phone calls at 7 a.m. this morning. Many Boston-area schools are closed today.

In May of 2011, as a high school senior, Tsarnaev was awarded a $2,500 City Scholarship from the City of Cambridge to pursue higher education.

So, now that we know the bombers were young Chechens, if you could change your vote, to what would you change it?

    - Islamic Terrorism
    - Organized Crime

Therefore, your argument has no standing. You seem to be interpreting the intentions and outcomes of our activities incorrectly.

They still may be international/other terrorists--even if they come from a predominantly Muslim country, or even if they themselves are Muslim.

It depends on their motive.

I'm going to guess that their actions are in response to US foreign policy--and not US culture/values. (I'm not sure how the US has treated Chechens (sp?) though, e.g. has the US ever subsidized the Russian government, which in turn suppresses the Chechens?).

Maybe they really hate jogging.

Authorities have identified the deceased suspect in the bombing of the Boston marathon, which killed three and injured more than 170, as Tamerlan Tsarnaev. A user by that name has posted a video to his YouTube playlist extolling an extremist religious prophecy associated with Al Qaeda. [NOTE:]It is not clear yet whether the user is the same Tsarnaev as the deceased suspect.

This is one of the phenomena I dislike the most when one of these kinds of things happens:

http://espn.go.com/mlb/powerrankings/_/ ... 013/week/4

Amidst an incredibly challenging week for obvious reasons, the Red Sox responded about as well as anyone could have hoped for, going 6-0 on the week before dropping both games in the day/night doubleheader Sunday against the Royals. More importantly, they gave Bostonians something to smile about again.


The Red Sox had a challenging week?
How many Bostonions were negatively effected by the Marathon Bombings? Were all of the people effected Red Sox fans? I'm pretty sure at least one person who was killed was not even from the country.

This shit fucking burns me up.

Heed it no mind. It's just sappy stuff to which many react positively, which helps their ratings/webpage visits. At least it isn't anything negative. <shrugs>

Don't you know that if you even do a stop-over at Logan you instantly become a Red Sox fan?

It's pretty clear at this point these guys were Islamic Jihadist Terrorists.

Whether you want to consider them Domestic or International is debatable...
but the cause definitely appears to be Religious Extremism.
