Boston Massacre 2.0
On Monday, April 15th, at around 3:00 in the afternoon, several IED’s were detonated during the Boston Marathon. Over 170 people were injured, and 3 are already dead. This is a devastating attack on the U.K. A thorough investigation is being made, though there has not been very much progress in identifying a suspect. I think this is terrible, and can’t believe that someone would do this. Several children were seriously injured, and one was killed. I simply dont understand why this happened… If whoever planted the bomb’s goal was to kill people, why did the put the bomb in an area with a less dense crowd? There were several areas that had more people in the area, where the bomb would have had a much higher casualty count – this leads me to believe that the bomb was placed simply to make a point.
The only thing that could come from this incident is a lot of pain and suffering, due to someone trying to make a political “point”. It baffles me that people would go out of their way to make and plant several bombs for what seems like no reason whatsoever. I really hope that the investigation is swift and that the government can find the person that planted these IED’s, and that he is punished accordingly. I honestly do not know what to say about this attack.
