That could very well be someone that lives there just watching, or it could have been a cop.

To think anything more is delving into the world of the paranoid conspiracy nut.

There has been a number of these bombings in recent years. The 9/11 disaster was so horrific it over shadowed that news. In 1975 the New York Laquardia Airport bombing was worse than todays incident. That was almost 40 years ago and has never been solved.

Also they have found two more devices. This is insanity.
Because I was at work, I didn't know this happened until about 2000.

I hope your sister went in to help out. When a disaster like this occurs, every employee who can possibly go in should go in. From Housekeepers to Doctors. When the shootings at NIU happened, I cried my way into work, then started crossmatching units of blood like crazy. I wasn't due in to work for another 10 hours but there was so much to do we couldn't have enough employees there.

All the innocent lives that will be changed forever because of this. That marathon runner who now will be an amputee from the knee down..........amongst the hundreds of others who were killed or injured.

I think Obama will have one maybe two weeks to come up with who the scum bag is before people start calling for his head.

I'm not saying this is an Islamic act, but the pressure cooker bombs and technique are used in Afghanistan on a regular basis. It's the same MO and it has to make you wonder. They used the first bomb to drive people towards the second bomb to get a maximum target. Whoever did this is sick, inhuman and their minds are poisoned. When will the people of this world realize that this is not the answer to humanities woes? It does no good for them, or anybody. It only kills more innocents and leaves lives empty and full of pain, while all the trouble of the world just continues on. I truly believe that love is the only answer for this planet, but hate continues to rage and we're all stuck in the middle.

The human condition dictates that we have always had, currently have, and will always need... A COMMON ENEMY.

The trend of human on human violence is unique in the animal kingdom and will continue unabated.... at least until hostile aliens show up.
