An intelligence report from April 10, five days before the Boston Marathon, called the finish line of the race an "area of increased vulnerability" and warned of "small scale bombings," the L.A. Times reports today, although there was "no credible, specific information indicating an imminent threat." Still, Boston police chief Ed Davis maintained at a congressional hearing, "We do not, and cannot, live in a protective enclosure because of the actions of extremists who seek to disrupt our way of life … I do not endorse actions that move Boston and our nation into a police state mentality, with surveillance cameras attached to every light pole in the city."
