WATERTOWN, S.D. (AP) – South Dakota Gov. Dennis Daugaard says the state has taken steps to improve security at some high-visibility locations in the wake of the bombing at the Boston Marathon.
Three people were killed and more than 170 were injured Monday by two bombs that exploded in Boston.
Daugaard tells KXLG Radio in Watertown that additional security sweeps have been done at Mount Rushmore National Memorial, the state Capitol Building and other places that might seem like targets to someone crazy enough to explode bombs. He says bomb-sniffing dogs have done some sweeps.
The governor tells the radio station that the Boston bombing was senseless and makes him angry.
He says he is “really sorry there are people whose mental state is such they would commit evil acts like this.”
