  1. My sympathy to the victim’s and their families.
    I hope the culprits are apprehended quickly, all their assets sold to compensate the victims families and then justice executed in a quick a timely manner.
    Events like this should never happen if we think that life is precious and sacred. Those who favour individual defensive measures design to take carpet kill people should realise that those same defensive measures can be used offensively.
    THINK DIFFERENTLY for yourself!

      1. If there’s no first responders around then yes, you should do your best to help, even if you have no training. But if there are (and there were police, medics and even some in military in this video), the last thing professionals need is untrained masses converging on the scene to “help”. An untrained helper can make things worse, e.g. moving someone with spinal or other critical injuries.

        Notice how, in the first moments after, runners didn’t abandon their race to rush in to help. Even the 78-year old man who was knocked down by the first blast, eventually got up and finished the race. They had their “job” to do (finish the race, just steps away), just as the videographer did–and first-hand video is invaluable for later investigation.

        This is not to diminish them as human beings. Many of the runners went to the hospital to try donating blood as soon as they crossed the finish line. There were so many the hospitals couldn’t accept, and the runners were asked to come back another time.
