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 Mobiles 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
"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.
