@HG I read there were medical tents nearby tended by individuals experienced treating such injuries from the wars. Had they not been there, the death toll would have been much greater, because they would have bled until they were taken to hospitals. So I think the response was just excellent. But who knows of the perp was that calculating...

Do you guys think they were intentionally trying to maim instead of kill?

I mean if you are trying to kill people with a bomb and you put two in areas that densely populated and you only kill 3 people you either aren't trying to kill people or you suck at bomb making.

I don`t mean to sound callous using the word "only" as even one life lost is precious and serious. I just am speaking logistically.

I agree @WhoDat: They were -comparatively- small IEDs. Still much larger than I'd ever wish to encounter...

So that`s "Thing #2" to be glad about: They were small and primitive, and if one was in a trashcan it was "poorly placed" indeed.

Here's some more info on the devices:

"The explosives used in the deadly Boston Marathon bombing were contained in 6-liter pressure cookers and hidden in black duffel bags on the ground, a person briefed on the investigation told The Associated Press on Tuesday.

One of the explosives contained shards of metal and ball bearings, and another contained nails, the person said."
