    Security is pretty high at big events like those in the city...I want to know how they went undetected.

    And yes, it is very sad news.

    Not really.

    You can walk right up to the running route and the finish line if you so chose.

    Two explosions along two different areas of the route tells me this was certainly deliberate.

    And it happend in Boston, who was known for the Boston Tea party. If I am not mistaken that was where they threw tea overboard to show thier disapproval for being taxed on tea and today is tax day.

    Trust me I am not a conspiracy theorist, but a lot of coincidence. Also, I am not a history buff at all so I may be wrong about everything I stated.

    It makes me sad and angry though hearing this.

    I don't know how you police an event of that size. If someone wants to cause trouble and they are even remotely clever they're going to do it. It really sucks that we continue to see these things happening.

    I do not see how you could with an event like this either.

    I ran the Rock N Roll USA Half Marathon in DC in March...

    I can guarantee there was no sort of checkpoints. My wife and two kids were in the Family area alongside the finish line, no checkpoints to get there. No checkpoints for me getting off the train and into the middle of the huge corral at the start, and that was with a backpack.

    at this point, we should expect to just be searched anywhere we go. No where seems to be off limits.

    That's a little stretched...it's a big city and a VERY well known event, and running events usually aren't as secured as say baseball or football games.

    Very easy for a lone nut job to put something together to cause lots of terror without making a statement about taxes, etc.

    I get that.

    I just know that at big time events like there there is always a presence of FBI, DHS, etc to help the local PD.

    Either the bombs were planted before the race started, which is odd that no one noticed, or they planted them during the race, which I guess is more probable because the amount of people would make it hard to really notice something like that.

    Definitely deliberate.

    CNN reported 4 people were taken to the hospital. Hopefully that number stands to be true and that they come through ok.
