So because a guy ran away from a blast he is a suspect? Haha
I understand they gotta look at all angles, but I would wager money that they were remote detonated and the perp was not in harm's way.
I agree with you on this one, However it should still be investigated. I really doubt that the perp would be close by his bomb/bombs when they went off.

That's what I figured. My radar says connected. Explosions at libraries have to be one of the last things in the world I would be worried about during day to day activities.
To have such a rare occurrence happen in the same city half an hour after two bombs went off is too big a coincidence for me to accept.
The fire broke out shortly before 3 p.m. — around the same time as the Marathon explosions several miles away — in an HVAC system in a section of the complex opened in 2011 that houses offices, a classroom, and some archival material, said Rachel Flor, a library spokeswoman.
“There was a fire, and it’s still unclear how it began,” Flor told reporters. “We did hear something that sounded like an explosion.”
Throughout the afternoon, library officials emphasized the blaze appeared to a “mechanical fire.”
Thomas Putnam, the library’s director, told reporters around 4 p.m. that a bomb squad was coming in as a precautionary measure in light of the Marathon blasts.
But by evening, Davis appeared to back away from his earlier statement, saying only that authorities were investigating at the scene. “The preliminary investigation indicates the JFK incident may not have been an explosion. It may have been a fire,” Davis said.
But then the flames abruptly grew very large and the smoke turned from white to black. Benton compared the sudden escalation to the lighting of a barbecue grill.
The cause of the fire was still under investigation last night, but police said the damage at the library may have been caused by a fire or “an incendiary” device.
Boston Police Commissioner Edward Davis now says the 4:30PM library incident was in all likelihood not related to the Marathon explosions. It has been described as a mechanical fire from an "incendiary device", rather than a blast. An investigation is underway and a connection to the earlier Boston Marathon blast has still not been firmly ruled out.

providing a possible motive of the bomber or bombers to have something to do with disability? It's a sporting event, full of fit and very able-bodied people, and so it may be possible that the grudge driving the motive is about bringing people into an understanding about the bomber's own (or someone close to them) condition of probable disability? A straight up motive of simply wanting to hurt people is just too simplistic.
