It's completely unfathomable that they're just completely in rerun mode, and have been for hours.

Re: Explosion at the Boston Marathon (NSFW Graphic Images ITT)

The reporters have repeatedly referenced being on cell phones so I'm finding that hard to believe.

Can't be randoms. It's too crazy to be randoms. Possibly the bombers going on a final run after they had been outed in the media?

I was thinking randoms until I heard the reporter say that when this first started happening he saw 30-40 cop cars go by.

Very possible, but how the hell could they just chill in Boston during this whole investigation?

It was on the scanner. It started with an officer saying "this might be a stupid question, but...can our phones set off these bombs?"

The dispatcher told them to power down the cell phones shortly after they were ordered to retreat.

"cell phones have been ordered off for police and media because of undetonated explosives."

I misunderstood, I thought you meant they were blocking all cell traffic like people were talking about during the Marathon thing.

Re: Explosion at the Boston Marathon (NSFW Graphic Images ITT)

If police are just suggesting people turn off their phones, totally fine imo. But it would be absolutely ridiculous to make the cell providers shut down the network.

Re: Explosion at the Boston Marathon (NSFW Graphic Images ITT)

They're concerned about explosives that were in a vehicle, that's why police were told to back off. It's looking very likely it's the bombers imo.

This **** is crazy. Imagine this **** happening on a daily basis. I feel so bad for people in war zones in other countries.
