WBZ-TV reported late Monday that law enforcement officers were searching an apartment in the Boston suburb of Revere. Massachusetts State Police confirmed that a search warrant related to the investigation into the explosions was served Monday night in Revere but provided no further details.
I’ve turned off the television and will patiently wait for the facts around the Boston bombings to come out. There’s little point in following this story right now and watching endless, uninformed speculation will only drive you crazy.
Words cannot begin to express our sorrow for the families who are grieving so suddenly right now. The House of Representatives offers its prayers to the victims and the city of Boston. We also give thanks for the professionals and Good Samaritans who prevented further loss of life. This is a terrible day for all Americans, but we will carry on in the American spirit, and come together with grace and strength.
The scenes from Boston are shocking and horrific - my thoughts are with all those who have been affected.
At this time, we haven’t been notified of any arrests or anyone apprehended…
Honestly, I don’t know where they’re getting their information from, but it didn’t come from us.
We’re at the point in most incidents like this where anything seems possible (as most Americans probably remember from the wild reports and wilder fears on 9/11, which was horrific enough as it was). If you live in Boston, stay home until things are better sorted out. If you live elsewhere, try to avoid jumping to any conclusions. We should know a lot more pretty soon.
