Boston Marathon Bombing – Three Patriots Days Later
What a day and days.
Monday is Patriots Day in Massachusetts, the third Monday in April on which the Boston Marathon is run. The holiday commemorates the Battles of Lexington and Concord in 1775.
Three Patriots Days ago, on April 15, 2013, Islamic terrorists bombed the Boston Marathon.
I don’t remember where I was when I first heard of it. But I do remember covering it.
Here is a look back.
At 3:06 p.m. I turned the first post live.

The media initially tried to blame “right wing” extremists, and when the suspects were killed and captured, they made like the false accusations never happened.

One of the evil brother’s sister lived right near here. She was kicked out of her apartment for dealing drugs and attacking her boyfriend. She moved one town over where the Mayor couldn’t do enough for her. Supporting her 100%. Why why why wasn’t she deported?
