STORYLEAK

Boston marathon runner Alastair Stevenson says that as the explosions erupted at the Boston Marathon this morning, he was told by police over the loud speaker that the events were ‘just a drill’. 

boston marathon drillStevenson, speaking with various news sources at the event, told one Alabama publication about what he witnessed during the race. While managing to finish the race before the explosions were in range of him or his bystander wife, Stevenson revealed some interesting information that makes sense of some Boston Globe tweets from earlier regarding bomb drills — which had been going on around the time of the actual explosions themselves and therefore may have confused police and emergency response.

In the article, Stevenson is recorded as saying:

They kept announcing to runners not to be alarmed, that they were running a training exercise.”

In fact, the eyewitness runner says that there were already a major presence of bomb sniffing dogs and even a bomb squad.

Runner Says ‘Bomb Sniffing Dogs, Bomb Squad Already On Scene Before Explosions’

Likely due to the perceived drill that was set to go on right  before  the actual explosion in the same area, the runner detailed how there was already a large presence of bomb sniffing dogs and even a bomb squad right nearby before the explosions hit. In fact, they had told the competitors and the fans that it was simply a drill — until they realized that real people were being injured and killed.

The numbers are not yet fully clear, but at least 20 were injured and at least 2 have died from the bombings.

These direct quotes by Stevenson, which have been captured via screenshot here in the event that the page is changed in any way or taken down, prove that the police were under the impression that the entire thing was a drill. This may coincide with a tweet made by the Boston Globe, which reads:

“BREAKING NEWS: Police will have controlled explosion on 600 block on Boylston Street”

    This makes absolutely no sense. Why would they have a training exercise detonating bombs at a marathon, nonetheless anywhere in the vicinity of the public? B.S.!! they said the same thing about Sandy Hook too.

      Our own government is killing us this was all a set up no doubt The damnnn government covers up for there own faults and people are not seeing that.. There actually blind to see things beyond that point and try to blame others for there own mistakes FUCK THE GOVERNMENT!!!!

    • Jeffrey says:

      Having a drill at the same time allows the murdering gov. Pricks to sneak in their REAL killers, and bombs, etc.
      That way, if the REAL killers are caught before the crime occurs they get off scott free because the “story line ” given is that ” it’s part of the drill.”
      SNEAKY MOTHER FUCKING BASTARDS!

    If this is true, we need serious government reform transcending the figure heads….

    I agree Kim. Because it was a routine check according to what local news reported. They had EOD sniffing dogs there before runners crossed the line. The Police Commissioner said they’ve been doing it for years. All these people are doing is skewing facts. The Boston Police do training exercises, but it’s always away from the general public and announced well beforehand.
