There are varying counts of people dead and injured from the explosions Monday afternoon at the finish line of the Boston Marathon, but the updated count from a police spokeswoman was three people dead, and more than 170 injured.

Of the 26,839 people entered in the race, 259 of them are from Arizona. One of those Arizonans crossed the finish line 23 seconds after the explosions, which means she couldn't have been too far from the actual devices, which were actually a little bit before the finish line but off to the side of the actual course.

Taking a look at the race results, we can see that 12 of the racers from Arizona actually finished after the explosions.

Those same results show that 36 Arizonans started the race but didn't finish. Only one of those people finished less than half of the race.

The rest of the registered racers from Arizona weren't tracked at all, most likely meaning that they didn't race at all.

 Proof that major violence can be accomplished in the absence of ANY guns.

AriZONans were in the Boston Marathon?? Oh my gosh- somehow, by some thin string, Arizona is somehow relevant. 


Is Arizona suffering from such low self esteem that every time a headline comes out, they have to find some obscure and meaningless thread they are in some way some how connected??


"Murder victims second cousin went to ASU" "President's hairdresser once called a business in Phoenix to order supplies"

"Q-tip used by Justin Bieber purchased at local valley Safeway"


Arizona sucks and is boring.

this is truly a world full of countless sorrows. many started out this day trying to celebrate life, many will go home pondering life now. somewhere out there is a couple who have a child who will be 8 forever. i dont wear my heart on my sleeve, but tonight i will sit in solemn silence mourning for those who need it.

This is an appropriate story considering the situation. Thanks for focusing on the situation, the victims and their families.

@sarum  

Cars kill and maim more people every year than guns do, so we should not have any restrictions or regulations on driving a car?

Prescription drugs kill more people every year than gun violence, so we should have no prescription drug regulations?

Less people are killed every year crossing the street, so we should have no crosswalks and jaywalking laws?

Proof that your argument is nothing more than bullshit, again since you are trying to equate two things that have no relation to each other in an attempt to defend illegal use of a firearm.

@doloresP Do you ever stop, listen to the words that come out of your own mouth and just feel like a complete idiot?  No?  You should.  You'd be quite surprised at how stupid you sound when you say shit like this.

Sadly, 3 people are dead, including an 8 year old, and up to 150 are injured.

Most terrorists are far right-wing religious nutjobs.

That includes the Taliban and homegrown US "patriots" like Timothy McVeigh.

While I agree with you, studies and stats gathering has been done and she is correct in her statement
