Boston Marathon bomb response exposed ‘fault lines’ in policing: study

BOSTON (Reuters) – The massive manhunt for the perpetrators of last year’s Boston Marathon bomb attack exposed some “fault lines” in coordinating law enforcement at the federal, state and local levels, according to a study released on Thursday.

Emergency responders racing to a crime scene without waiting for orders might save lives by tending to the wounded, but during the chaotic chase to catch the suspects a few days later, they also risked being shot by police, the Harvard University report found.

Victim of Boston bombing attack sues Glenn Beck for defamation

BOSTON (Reuters) – A Saudi Arabian national who was injured in the bombing attack on last year’s Boston Marathon has filed a defamation lawsuit against television commentator Glenn Beck for publicly accusing him of being the “money man” behind the attacks.

Beck, a conservative television and radio personality, repeatedly criticized the federal investigation into the attacks that killed three people and injured 264, and in May 2013 claimed that Abdulrahman Alharbi had financed the attacks.

Boston exhibit to showcase relics of Marathon bombing aftermath

BOSTON (Reuters) – Archivists in Boston used to handling documents ranging from budget records to minutes of city council meetings, along with an occasional file dating to the city’s 17th-century founding, have spent the last year processing thousands of sneakers, T-shirts and letters.

It has been a tear-jerking project for the staff of the Boston city archives. These are the mementos left behind at an impromptu memorial built at the site of the 2013 bombing attack on the Boston Marathon, which killed three people and injured 264 at the race’s crowded finish line.
