So there was a third bomb that went off at JFK library. This smacks of a domestic terrorist event.

I agree. However, it will only get worse as time goes on. Sure, only 2 dead initially, but there are at least a dozen in critical condition in surrounding hospitals so the casualty number is more than likely going to rise. Not only that, but getting a leg blown off, or soon to be amputated, is pretty bad. And, as previously mentioned, if that reported third explosion at JFK Library is legit, this thing isn't over yet.

I am so tired of all this acts of terrorism, and hope that if caught whoever is responsible should be decapitated and no more court or jail time needed. prayers to the victims and their families.

It sure is. And sorry if I come off a bit harsh to any of you, but this is home to me.

Also, they increased the injured total to 46, death total still at 2. The whole city is on lockdown. Colleges, the T (subway system), airport, they shut down cell service to the city, and the National Guard are being fully deployed as well as FBI & Secret Service on the scene both at the race and JFK Library.

I have yet to hear about the bomb under the grand stands. The last bomb was found 5 miles away from the finish line somewhere apparently. Thats a large area to sweep! Sending out the positive vibes for fast recovery for those injured, and peace to those who have lost someone. The JFK library bomb was across the street that went off by bomb squad, but the one in the library went off on its own?

Kudos to the first responders! They did an awesome job from what I can see, they just flew right in there. I can vouche though, no better place in the world to get medical treatment!
