Runner thinks police had tip-off about bomb

The FBI obviously did not do their job in this situation.
You gave up your rights to privacy so various agencies can vacuum up your personal electronic information, wire-tap your e-mails and text messages, profile your credit-card purchases, all to stop incidents like this. To replicate PreCrime. Yet it was all for naught.
You will continue to bankrupt yourselves until half of you are in jail and the other half are working for the security apparatus of the USA.
And it is futile. Whoever the bomber is, he would have had equal (or better) carnage and death by placing the bomb at a hospital or shopping mall. It's a fallacy to contine to think that security barricades and police walking around (earning overtime pay) is the answer. This will just bankcrupt cities and put an end to events like this, as your country goes into virtual lock-down.

UM Coach: Bomb Sniffing Dogs, Spotters on Roofs Before Explosions
University of Mobile’s Cross Country Coach, who was near the finish line of the Boston Marathon when a series of explosions went off, said he thought it was odd there were bomb sniffing dogs at the start and finish lines.
"They kept making announcements to the participants do not worry, it's just a training exercise," Coach Ali Stevenson told Local 15.
Stevenson said he saw law enforcement spotters on the roofs at the start of the race. He's been in plenty of marathons in Chicago, D.C., Chicago, London and other major metropolitan areas but has never seen that level of security before.
"Evidently, I don't believe they were just having a training exercise," Stevenson said. "I think they must have had some sort of threat or suspicion called in."
CNN reports a state government official said there were no credible threats before the race.
