That's two.If you want to start a flamethrowing contest let me know and I'll lower myself to your standard. Differing from your views equates bile. So normal behavior for you is making juvenile comments?

Having different views is neither here nor there. Staking a claim to this thread as the venue to express those views is loathsome.

A thread like this is going to garner much more widespread interest than the PDT, and from many who choose to opt out of the PDT specifically to avoid political mud slinging. Which is why the PDT exists in the first place; it provides a cone of silence for those of us who enjoy that kind of discussion without polluting the rest of the board.

I'll take your flaming yes to the political thread.

Yes, me, too. The coward "stands by his convictions" enough to bomb the Boston freakin' Marathon. What's so different now? You're trying to make some statement? Well, sign your damn name to it, superhero.

@SethMacFarlane 6h The edited Family Guy clip currently circulating is abhorrent. The event was a crime and a tragedy, and my thoughts are with the victims.

The video isn't fake. It's two clips from an episode that aired in March. The person who posted it is just trying to get the point across that the show jokes about an act of terrorism at the Boston marathon and it also has Peter detonating two bombs with a phone in the same episode.

There are still new developments happening so hopefully people can behave.

If you really can't bite your tongue and must respond to something and bring it off the topic of just news copy it over to the political discussion thread.

It was really only one person. It was politely explained to him why that stuff should be kept in the PDT and this thread reserved for the discussion of the events and investigation, but he considered that as him being "flamed." I think this thread will be good to go as long as noone else follows that lead

These Soldiers Did the Boston Marathon Wearing 40-Pound Packs. Then They Helped Save Lives.

I've kept out of this so far, but IMHO, the response was as bad as the offense.

We all need to chill out.

I'll say this much, if you talk to anyone who's walked through the aftermath of one of these attacks, as I have, they'll tell you to pipe down.

Dozens of people have lost limbs, think about that for a minute. Think of how your life would be affected by being one of those people. One day you're enjoying a sunny Patriots day celebration by watching healthy people run in the BAA Boston Marathon, and the next minute your life is changed forever.

And that doesn't even consider those that have died because of this senseless act.

Those pictures were horrific,mi can tell you from personal experience that witnessing it in person is even worse.

Enough politicing from both sides... , please.

I hope they're able to reconstruct enough from the evidence to find out who the true culprits are and that those responsible are brought to justice.

I thought the same. The dude to her left seems to be taking video and if he was sweeping with his arm, he might have caught him also. But, you would think that the dude would also be aware of those types of things and attempting to avoid being caught in any video or photos. Who knows.

I'd think everyone caught on tape or camera wearing a backpack near the scene will be a suspect.
