Moving: ‘Amazing Grace’ on bagpipes at Boston courthouse [pics, video]

It’s getting dusty in here.
As Twitchy reported, media and spectators swarmed the Moakley federal courthouse in Boston upon reports (now denied by authorities) that an arrest had been made in the Boston Marathon bombing. The courthouse was then evacuated due to a bomb scare.
A man took up his bagpipes at the scene and began playing “Amazing Grace.”
Someone is now playing the bagpipes near the courthouse. Playing Amazing Grace.
