Congressman Bachus Statement on Bombings at Boston Marathon


Location: Washington, DC

Congressman Spencer Bachus (AL-6) made the following statement tonight on the bombings at the Boston Marathon.

"The House of Representatives held a moment of prayer tonight for the victims of this senseless bombing at a sporting event that brings such joy to its participants and to the family members and spectators who line the streets of Boston to watch the race. There is much that we do not know this evening, but we know that the person or persons who carried out this terrible act must be held fully accountable under the law. As Americans, we come together at times like this to show our support for those who have suffered personal losses and to demonstrate our resolve as a society against actions designed to spread fear and harm the innocent."
