Passions are running high on the east coast and in America in general in response to the terrorist attack that occurred at the Boston Marathon on Monday. I woke up early Tuesday morning and turned on the Boomer and Carton show which airs on MSG as well as WFAN and was shocked but not altogether surprised by what the hosts had said about the fate of the bomber(s). Boomer Esiason, a former NFL quarterback and CBS football analyst and Craig Carton a sports radio personality have been paired on the air for over five years. Boomer calls for revenge against those responsible, but Carton takes it to a very dangerous and unnecessary level indeed.
Caller Joe: ...my question is what if we find out who and we'll go with the assumption that it is a terrorist attack.
Carton: I don't know how, this is my own personal feelings , I don't know how you view this as anything other than a terrorist attack. It's hard to have that conversation on this radio show because it's your own personal beliefs. I don't want any of this to be political. I have very strong beliefs that if you catch someone who did it, ahhhh, there's no trial and you kill them. And you're done with it. That's just how I feel and I know that goes against how a lot of people feel, but just my own personal sensibilities, Find out the person who did it, if you know 100 % for (garbled) and that's the person who did it. You end that person and that's it. It's very simple to me, but that's me and you get off on a whole different tangent which I don't want to go in that direction. I know that it angers a lot of people.
