Congressman and Local Security Expert Weigh-In on Bombings
Two bombs triggered at the Boston Marathon continue to spark outrage as to who may be the mastermind behind the attacks. Congressman Patrick Meehan says the suspect or suspects will be tracked down.
“It will happen with painstaking work that is done. I would like to have it happen quickly.”
Meehan adds, when they’re caught……
“The death penalty has been written in to Federal and can be prosecuted under local law.”
From a security standpoint, local security expert,
Dave Gordon says the main focus for investigators in Boston will come from eyes in sky.
“Looking at every piece of video and photo that was taken throughout the day, trying to pinpoint those two areas.”
Gordon adds, witnesses probably saw the suspect who left the bomb, likely thinking it was just someone throwing something away.
Local Cardiologist Experiences Chaos at Boston Marathon
The bombings at the Boston Marathon hits close to home. Doctor Todd Alderfer, a Sellersville cardiologist, participated in the marathon with a group of people from our area. Alderfer says, everyone in his group finished the marathon before the bombs exploded, but he soon found out what had happened when he was on the subway.
“Our subway train was driving underneath the station when blast occurred. We didn’t know a blast occurred, but the subway driver didn’t stop at Copley Square. He skipped that stop and went to the next stop and opened up and one security cop came in and evacuated the subway train itself and the entire subway and just sent everybody to the surface, cause it was literally within three minutes of the bomb going off.”
Alderfer and his group did not suffer any injuries, but some frayed nerves. It was the 13th time Alderfer ran the Boston Marathon. Alderfer was interviewed live with Darryl Berger on WNPV’S New AM-Edition Tuesday morning.
