It was pretty clear that they weren't planning on sparking off a terrorist scare. They are only being "punished" because they unintentionally scared people into thinking it was a terrorist threat.
It wasn't a hoax. It was a national ad campaign that was mistaken for being a bunch of bomb devices. The authorities of Boston made an ass out of themselves. If you took a look at these pictures, you'll see why.
