    Just saw this pop up in my twitter feed, can't believe it. I truly hope it was something accidental and not something malicious. In either case all my prayers go out to those families.

    Yup, theres definitely fuel involved there, which means it still may be accidental.

    Sick joke? You got any idea how disruptive these events are? While they bring some additonal revenue, the cost to society is absolutely staggering.

    Cities always underestimate the costs of events like these because the cost is in forgone income/resident happiness, not dollars out of the budget.

    A CNN reporter did point out that there are a ton a of generators and electrical equipment concentrated around the finish line. It's not impossible that it will turn out to be a terrible accident.

    Explosions occurred during the 3:30-4:00 hour of the marathon when the most runners tend to cross the finish line.

    Have some bloody compassion, I can't believe some people are this selfish.

    So you feel as though somebody should pay even if this is an accident?

    The fact that it happened right as the race normally ends makes it pretty unlikely that its an accident in my eyes. Coincidence isn't real.

    Gonna go out on a branch and say if it was from the hotel it might have been a gas leak from the kitchen/gas pipes under the hotel.

    So I can't speculate about the motive behind the explosion (assuming it was deliberate) like everyone else? It's not unheard of for some business owners who are already financially fucked to snap due to things like this.

    I have no idea how my post is "selfish"?
