The security camera system located at the Lord & Taylor in Boston may have proved to be the best evidence yet in finding out who has perpetrated the bombing of the Boston Marathon. As we are all still catching our breath from the devastation, loss of lives and irreparable damage that is caused by such a senseless act of violence, the Federal, State and Local authorities are combing through hours of security camera footage from businesses in the Boston area, to try to provide evidence of who caused the devastation. Today Boston Globe reported that authorities have identified a suspect carrying and perhaps even dropping a black bag at the second bombing scene. While an arrest has reportedly not yet been made, it is clear that the joint effort of all law enforcement officials is beginning to uncover evidence that will hopefully lead to a rapid arrest of the suspects.
Security cameras are becoming more important in today’s world, not only to help protect your business from theft or vandalism, but also to help provide evidence when the unthinkable occurs in your neighborhood. Our thoughts and prayers go to all of the innocent victims and families that have been affected by this tragedy.
