Actually, I was reading about it at google news just a few minutes ago, and slashdot tends to be a bit late to the party in reporting stories like this. I'd agree that it's a bit of a waste of bandwidth, disk space, etc. for /. to bother with it. Unless, of course, it turns out eventually that there's an interesting tech component to the story. It's likely that anyone interested in such "public interest" stories has a window open to one or more of the general news sources. So /. shouldn't bother.

OT prediction: If it turns out that the act was committed by an American nutjob, as with the Oklahoma City bombing the media and political system will quickly forget about it. If it turns out that it was done by a "furriner", we'll hear lots about those awful "terrists" for some time, everyone will make vicious pronouncements, and they won't forget about it. In either case, little if anything will be done that's relevant to preventing future such acts.

(But this is just based on history. I could be wrong, so stay tuned. ;-)

Today I think you have it backwards. If it does end up being an american, it will be all over the media, used as an excuse to take away more rights. If it is a "furriner" it will be just a misguided man who is angry with america, and we should tolerate it.

I dunno, I'm of the inclination that the amount of media attention will be directly proportional to how many rights will be compromised with the resulting legislation. Which works for both the "terrist" excuse (yay more warrant-less ass ramming) and home grown nutters (the public can't buy certain chemicals, no matter how useful they are in ways not related to explosives).

Re:tell me again (1)

Thoguth (203384) | about a year and a half ago | (#43454973)

It could work the opposite way. Remember the '90's Assault weapons ban? Columbine happened while the weapons were banned.... when it was time to renew it, the message was "this didn't prevent Columbine, it's worthless".

Maybe when the warrantless snooping laws are up for review, someone will point out that it didn't prevent the Boston Bombing (or whatever it gets called) and it will expire with just as little fanfare.

Fortunately, every time some whackaloon goes crazy and kills people some fool makes the mistake of announcing the political message of the attack before it comes out that the dude was just a whackaloon.

That being said -- if this isn't an accident -- there are so many ways to go with this one. First, it's April 15 - which is the TEA party day of action. (got to listen to a "what will you do to defend your country" speech at lunch today). Second, the last mile of the Boston Marathon was dedicated to the victims of Newtown -- so there's that lead in. Third, various politicians et al attend the race -- so there's the assassination angle.

Best course -- pray it turns out to have been a big gas leak.

Tell me again how gun legislation would have prevented this???

First off, people are likely dead and the first comment is political horseshit. Immediate concerns should be focused on the victims, their families, their friends, their coworkers and then the investigation into who or what did this. A month later, you can start your political monkey shitfight okay? We still don't know what happened and I, personally, am concerned first and foremost for the safety of the people of Boston.

Secondly whenever anything bad happens, do you show up and ask how gun legislation would have prevented this? Gun legislation isn't going to prevent deaths from drunk driving ... but that's not sound logic to block gun legislation. By the way, I think even the most idiotic gun nuts think we should have some legislation covering guns like, you know, background checks to weed out felons. There is a need for some gun legislation, the debate is how much. Are you saying it should be legal for underage kids to bring guns to school? Are you saying parents shouldn't be held accountable when they leave a fully loaded handgun for their kid to find? Are you saying your neighbor shouldn't be able to have celebratory gunfire into the sky daily? All of that is technically gun legislation.

I mean really, are you that much of a scare whore that you want to put people into panic?!

And let's say - just say - it's a fucking terrorist attack - douzens of people were hurt. That sucks but ... big fucking deal! It's not like it's 3,000 jumping there deaths!
