Being a nurse in Boston, I'm thinking that the police were just trying to secure the area and, they were probably just looking out for the safety of the priests. Also, the main focus was to rush and stabilize who they could. I work at a Catholic hospital in Boston and our priest's beeper goes off more than anyone's. He is actually requested by many other religions as well. It is truly sad that last rights were not administered to the victims.
Martha, could you please clarify what you mean?
Lina, from what I read in the press, a priest did attempt to get to the scene but was turned back. He then went back to his church and opened the doors to everyone. Yes I believe he adminstered to all who came.
