But officials with Verizon Wireless and Sprint Nextel said there had been no such requests.

Wouldn't this also shut down texting and internet service though?

I'm sure as hell not standing up for the savages you hate, I've had nothing but negative dealings with them without even going to war, but take a step back till we know who perpetrated the bombing.
Regardless of the nationality of the scumbag who set those bombs off
in Boston it was an act of TERRORISM.
Call it what it is

I don't disagree with that one bit. It just sounded to me like you were singling out middle easterners(that may be the nicest thing I've ever called them....) without any real evidence to support it. Whoever did it is a piece of shit and deserves to be put down with extreme prejudice, it was just a little early to assume it was a certain ethnic group.

Draw what conclusions? That the video was edited? That maybe the whole thing was staged?

What point are you trying to make Rockstar? Just curious nothing more.

I like how everybody automatically assumes this is an Islamic Attack. Maybe it could have been some Pro/Anti ______ group trying to make a point.

It sickens me to see innocent people get killed. Overall killing is wrong, and I can somewhat agree with that, but at the same time there are a lot of people that need to be killed in this world. For me, I can be completely comfortable with terrorists, murderers, rapists, pedophiles, child molestors, bombers, etc being killed (not in a quick painless method either). When it comes to innocent life being taken away, it's hard for me to stomach that.

I don't think it's perpetuating hate. It's hatred of evil. If there is no evil, the hatred can cease. The cycle gets broken when evil is banished, not when good men stop hating evil in some useless hippie feel good method to try and lead people whose thought process cannot be changed by example.
I think we should look to justice instead of hate. However, I'm more comfortable with this idea because I believe that they will answer to the Creator of the universe and be judged accordingly.

My Question still stands. What good is all this hating on them on an internet forum (and in our minds/hearts) going to do to better the situation? IT DOES NOTHING!! You can be angry, you can be hurt, you can want justice. Hating them does nothing but continuing the hate they felt towards <insert reason here>. That's the cycle we need to break.

Be angry, mourn, but by continuing to hate them you are perpetuating thier crime on those that lost thier lives yesterday. I go back to the idea that everybody assumes this is Islamic. What if it's not?

Either way, the thoughts that have crossed many of our minds, and some have typed, along the lines of "I want those bastards to die a horrible and painful death" really isn't any different then the thoughts the perpetrators probably had towards thier cause.

I also want to be clear that they should be punished to the full letter of the law and we shouldn't pussy foot around the subject. I'm all for them coming to complete justice, I just think hating them personally won't get you any where closer to that justice. It will only pull you closer to something that resembles the very people you are saying you hate.

Being sad doesn't help either. Neither does praying, crying, posting on Facebook, and internet forum, etc. etc.

I don't know if it was an Islamic group, and I don't care. I don't care what group takes responsibility. I just want them to be found and hung. I really hope this isn't some government conspiracy, but in the last year with the crap going on it's a very scary possibility. I don't want to believe it, but I can't fully dismiss it either.

Trying to say that hating individuals that prey on innocent lives is no different than the hate that drives individuals that kill and maim innocent lives is NOT the same thing. Sure, it's hate, but targets are vastly different. Sick fucks like the ones that pulled off this bombing need to die a slow death, along with any other twisted fukc that preys on innocent lives. Focused hate can be quite a driving force. If it can be focused to evil twisted assholes that prey on innocent lives, I don't see that as a bad thing.

I think hatred is a perfectly natural human emotion, is appropriate in these situations, and we should not pretend it doesn't exist.
Whats important is to channel it towards positive action. In this case a determination to find those responsible and bring them to justice.

Which is pretty much what Greasemonkey said, but said in a more hippy liberal kinda way.

News is saying they were in pressure cookers inside duffle bags. This explains the legs and feet being main area injury on so many. This also in my opinion mean the person(s) who did this were in a remote location. Meaning not a sucide bomber.

So do you think they'll outlaw pressure cookers?
