Re: Reports of explosions at 2013 Boston Marathon

It appears my initial hunch was right, that this was the work of an amateur bomber. I've read reports on the CNN website stating that investigations reveal the explosives were made of crude materials and that the perpetrator(s) didn't have a specifically large target and wasn't going for "maximum damage."

Amateur or not, this doesn't make the attack on innocent people any less deplorable or horrific. The attacker must be brought to justice.
