I will start by paying tribute to the people of Boston. It takes a lot to shock me these days but the events at the marathon really managed to do that.
This was an horrific and evil crime. Calculated to slaughter innocents and given that the youngest victim, Martin Richards, was only 8 years old it succeeded in doing just that.
There is a dreadful picture circulating which has now been picked up by the mainstream media. It shows Martin stood on the railings watching the race with his mother and sister. Behind him is one of the suspects and between them is the bomb in the backpack. This picture horrified me more than any of the graphic injury shots which were quickly posted after the event.
