Coincidence?

Who in the Hell plans for a mass-casualty event at a marathon?

Either they knew something was going to happen, or they did it, there are only 2 choices here....

or both

At this point it seems likely that authorities had pre-attack intelligence on the situation (the evidence is beginning to bear this out). However, I'm not so sure that the medical team stuff isn't a coincidence. Medical people upgrade systems and preparedness all the time to deal with all sorts of things. Is it weird? Ya. But I don't recall other false flags giving medical personnel a heads up on the situation or special gear for responding to it.

Edit: On second thought... maybe they did give the new systems to the medical crews at that time because they had intelligence on the situation. I still don't think this is a false flag though.

Wouldn't it make sense to test such a device during a large crowd event, such as the Boston Marathon? As one poster already mentioned, there usually are minor injuries...perhaps this is simply a field test that coincided with a real event?

I know that's not a popular idea on ATS, but I don't see this as a false flag. Wouldn't a false flag be grander in scale? This event, as tragic as it was, will get swept aside soon enough with more footage of NK and the like. Seems to me this is most likely the work of a uni-bomber sort. Of course, we don't know the full story and its way to soon to be casting blame.

Ever since 9/11, every contingency plan is studied, no matter what. So no....No one knew about it before hand, just so happens that a new piece of medical equipement is availible so it was put in the plan just in case it was required,

give it up people,.....not everything is about a conspiracy !

Just the head of the Boston PD Bomb squad saying that it was just an exercise that would be held right where the first bomb went off prior to the bombings. On drudge yesterday they said the practice would take place right opposite the Library, that article has conveniently disappeared.

Ignoring facts is just fooling yourself.

I've been in emergency services (FD&EMS) for 31 years now and have to say that there is no intellegence or experise in either of these fields shown in the comments by, almost, everyone on this forum.

Yes we plan for such events at any possible venue including Marathons.

Yes distributors of new and innovative rescue products provide their newly innovative items for us to test. So you may see something "debut" at a mass casualty event such as this, due to all the press coverage and Firehouse Magazine or other Special interest to the emergency service branch publication may feature it.

Yes we "incidently" plan our training to target the same areas as actual emergency events, bombings, plane crashes, mass shootings. (areas where people amass hench the term "mass casualty incident".

This is all I have to say to you people other than the idiotic remarks written by you all (with an odd exception or two) are ignorant, pitiful and disgusting.

Kind of sad but typical.
ATS now adays.......... not so great

I went to SafetyPads website and on the bottom left there is a chat box.

"Josh" from their website said they launched a new product but it wasnt MCI related.




Now online: Leave a question or comment and our agents will try to attend to you shortly =)

You (click to change) Testing out your new gear at the boston marathon huh? how did it work?

You are currently being served by Josh

Josh It was a miss-report. We launched a new product but it wasn't mci related.

You (click to change) Thanks for the clear up Josh!

Josh You are welcome

They were running drills in the London bombing at the same place those bombs exploded, they we running drills for NATO at the WTC on 9/11, they were running drills the same day at Columbine, they were running FEMA drills near Newtown the day of those shootings. Now running drills at the Boston Marathon.

One question do running drills help save lives? it didn't help in any of these tragedies now did it.

Wait a tick, did I miss something or have you always been a forum mod? Its a conspiracy! lol.

Back on topic, its funny how all these stories are coming out but the MSM will not touch them at all.

I.E. the police chief telling everyone it was a drill before the bombs went off. The story of the Coach. They HAVE said that it was unexpected just like 9-11, but the intel reports will come out and we shall see.

I'm not saying this makes me want a nice grouper dinner, but I'm in the mood for seafood.

There isn't many casualties.

I think if someone could have pulled off a bomb to kill lots of people they would have.

Wow, especially considering there is one OTHER "date" like symbol a little futher down on the page.
Should we expect another incident on 04/25???I can only hope and pray that we've seen all the "Mass Causualties" that this countrywill see for quite some time.

During the afternoon on the 15th, I was driving in my car listening to the radio and thinking of all
the men, women, and children that had just experienced such a horrific scene, and pondering what N.Korea might or might not do next. Suddenly an emergency broadcast signal interrupted the station, and I'm sad to say
my immediate reaction was to scan the skies, readily expecting to see "something"...it ended without
any message whatsoever... never even stating it was a test. I found that extremely odd considering the timing.

I definitely think it is sad when the world we live in is so uncertain that as a citizen of the U.S.A.
it wouldn't surprise me to see war break out on our homeland, or some type of
terrorist attack on a large scale, just sayin...

Okay then, we'll just take your word for it, and while we're at it....we'll throw common sense out the window!

There are no conspiracies, now move along.

Yes take my word for it. Why? I'm a professional in this field, and you? well. your staements and hyperbole says it all.
You are an example of "embrace ignorance"

Ya know, its funny. I went to the beach for spring break. There were tons of people there. You know what else was there? Mass Casualty Response vehicles.

Its called preparation. Its what you do when you know there will be thousands of people gathered in a small area.

I disagree.

We don't prepare for "mass casualty events" unless we either

A) Know they will happen in advance

or

B) Are ultra paranoid

If you choose B then the "terrorists" have won already...If you choose A then, well, we have some very evil people calling the shots!

What qualifies you to jump to such a conclusion?. What is your expertise in the area of disaster preparedness, MCI incident training, or any other subject pertaining to emergency response and/or public safety.
You know mine and I going to venture a safe bet your's is a big fat ZERO.
You are ignorant to the facts and self diluged in your beliefs.

So to be prepared, in your opinion, means that you are paranoid? Hmmm....

A mass casualty event can happen in countless ways. It doesnt have to have anything to do with terrorism or violence. In fact, most dont. Most are accidents.

An event like the Boston Marathon, or any marathon, for that matter, is at a higher risk for multiple injuries and/or casualties. Marathons are grueling. Many, many people end up in the hospital after running them. Most who run them need some sort of treatment after.

(Editor's Note: The system deployed by SafetyPAD at the Boston Marathon was not a Mass Casualty device.)

Article

Found this interesting.

Why make such localized bombs. Killing only three people......injuring over 175. Theres something i'm missing here. i dont know if the app is anything more than a coincidence but theres something definitely wrong about the logic behind this. Either the suspect(s) who planted the bomb were new to bomb making or this is a conspiracy.
