police commissioner of boston just said no one is in custody. was just in a live interview 30 seconds ago.
I contacted Johnny and he's fine. Hopefully the other Bostonian members were nowhere near it.
Truth as Circe. Error has transformed animals into men; is truth perhaps capable of changing man back into an animal?
Man, this is unreal. I have lots of friends and family in Boston, but so far everyone seems to be okay. My boyfriend's brother and his fiancee were at the Red Sox game (1.5ish miles away). My cousin and her fiance were at the marathon, but got confirmation that they're okay.
I know of several CPers in the Boston area, but I'm racking my brain to think of anybody else who might be actually in Boston and at the marathon. Cell phone service is totally tied up right now so it might take some time to get in touch with people...
Update from reddit:
There is a suspect to look out for (via police scanner 1min ago). He is described as:
black male, all black clothing with hood on, wearing a backpack.
He tried to gain access to a secured area 5 minutes before the bomb went off.
Please edit so people can contact police if they see someone matching the description.
*Edit: User bardanskirata just PM'ed me this:
To follow with your comment on the Boston Marathon thread - man you described from the police band (I heard it too, I'm listening in now) appears to be on the roof here: http://s3-ec.buzzfed.com/static/enha...6053505-23.jpg
Good luck to everyone, this is so crazy ...
this is another reason to start those brain scans to tell if your a psychopath
