Transcript: Suffolk County District Attorney Dan Conley’s remarks on the Boston Marathon bombings – evening press conference on April 15, 2013

Partial transcript of remarks by Dan Conley, Suffolk County District Attorney, on the bombings at the Boston Marathon at a press conference on April 15, 2013:

Earlier this afternoon, like so many Bostonians, I was on Boylston Street near the finish and left about 30 minutes before this incident occurred.

And a short time ago, Commissioner [Ed] Davis, myself, Colonel [Tim] Alben, and Special Agent [Rick] DesLauriers and our top staff went down to the scene. It was a large and disturbing scene.

Like each of you, I’m praying for the victims and their loved ones. This is a terrible, terrible day for them. They and the public at large can count on our very best and most seamless work in the days to come.

Seconds after those bombs went off, we saw civilians running to help the victims right alongside members of the Boston Police Department and Boston EMS. And in the hours that followed, police and medical personnel from across the region have sent dozens, maybe even hundreds, of volunteers to help us here in Boston.

That’s what Americans do. In times of crisis, we come together and we help one another.

Moments like these, terrible as they are, don’t show our weakness; they show our strength.

Thank you.
