Explosion at Boston Marathon *NSFW IMAGES*

401 posts in this topic

Sucks to be someone of middle-eastern descent when things like this happen. People hurting look for someone to blame, and after 9/11, it's easy to see how someone might get pointed out if only for the color of their skin.

Anyway, conspiracy theorists are going wild. Meanwhile, 4chan comes up with this:

Stupid as it may look, it's interesting seeing people try to pick apart something/anything to find out who's responsible.

How about the Guy in the Camo. hat a few feet away with a very large backpack for an older man (it seems he has white hair) to be carrying.

The backpack/dufflebag had to have been at least pressure cooker sized and heavy. If it was indeed a pressure cooker style bomb.

Its very sad that this **** has to happen in a modern society. Why cant people just get along??? I hate having to look over my shoulder when i go to the city but you have no choice. There are animals out there trying to hurt everyone. :cry:

you want to know why we can't just get along? it's because of religious and political disputes. in this modern age religion does more to pull us apart than anything. and as far as politics goes, at least here in the US, the fact that there are only 2 main parties splits our country in half

all i see are close up videos of the first bomb with the second in the background. wheres videos of the second? Its kinda pathetic that officials are so desperate for video and pictures, looking at peoples cell phones at the airport...? they probably are clueless.

The first bomb was at the finish line, with two viewing platforms. It's not surprising that there is a lot of video from that site. There were even news crews stationed there filming in the street.

The second location is down the road near nothing remarkable (as far as the marathon goes), and everyone running at that point was at 4+ hours, it wasn't like it was the final sprint for the elite runners. If you wanted video of a friend finishing, you'd be recording down the road.

I sincerely hope the FBI hunts down whoever did this and I hope whoever it is, resists arrest so they can put 3 caps down their throat. This is an act of pure evil and deserves no mercy, only execution as punishment for hurting all those innocent people.

I think there was a video on reddit that showed second blast from a camera used by an athlete who happened to be near it .

Crowd sourcing. It's a great idea.

It's not just 4chan, but it's hardly shocking that a gathering of technically capable people have had some success(?) with this >.<

A few hours after the attacks there was mention of someone with dark skin wearing a hoodie carrying a suspicious number of backpacks around that area.

Hard to say what's known at this point. I live in the area, there are cops going all over the place, but they're also just going around en masse inspecting everything remotely threatening, not to mention they searched that poor Saudi kids apartment just because he was Saudi.

Care to back that statement up with facts?

I don't like 4Chan normally, but these images do show the possible perpetrators. Have these images been sent to the authorities yet?

This. 4chan/Anonymous/Reddit and other communities may not be the most favored, but they've all seriously contributed towards turning in criminals as the Internet works to hunt down bad people. In some cases, well before even the police can.

Some people are eager to call them ridiculous though, when meanwhile, you have big names in media throwing blatant lies and so forth. I can't blame a man for trying, and if there's a chance, no matter how small it may be that it actually leads to something, then by all means go ahead.

Uh, the fact that both the BPD and the Saudi government have identified him as a victim of the bomb attack, and the BPD admits they have no suspects, but someone thought it was prudent to search his apartment anyway?

I promise they've seen them.

The US security/intel bodies are unlikely to miss anything related to this event.

I dunno man. I mean, you don't think these people could be looking for their friends? Or possibly talking to them? And going through their bags is suspicious too? So if I left university with my textbooks in my bag (accounting for the weight) and I also had a bottle of water in there, I was digging for then I'd automatically be a suspect?

Normally no, but in an area where bombings could or have occured be prepared because they've been used in bombings & shootings before. Deal with it or get your school to switch to eBooks.

The marathon course is lined with people a) walking around and not stopping b) carrying bags and c) moving in and out of crowds to get to see the road.

So, yes, per amateur inter-sleuths, everyone is a suspect. But, it looks like the authorities have identified someone: http://www.boston.com/metrodesk/2013/04/17/boston-medical-center-reports-five-year-old-boy-critical-condition-victims-treated-from-boston-marathon-bombings/gkKXBTqL2jyNhsC2Kz5GyO/story.html

Possible suspect? http://edition.cnn.c....html?hpt=hp_t2

[Original story, posted at 1:11 p.m. Wednesday]

(CNN) -- Investigators believe they have identified a suspect in the Boston Marathon bombings, a source who has been briefed on the investigation told CNN's John King exclusively.

The breakthrough came from analysis of video from a department store near the site of the second explosion. Video from a Boston television station also contributed to the progress, said the source, who declined to be more specific but called it a significant development.

Earlier, a federal law enforcement source with firsthand knowledge of the investigation told CNN that a lid to a pressure cooker thought to have been used in the bombings had been found on a roof of a building near the scene.

While such clues may move the investigation forward, they did not reveal whether the attack was an act of domestic or foreign terrorism.

I know this is a serious topic, but I couldn't stop laughing after looking through that gallery thanks to this picture.

I'd say in a case like this nearly everyone is a suspect until the real one is caught. I have no problem with that either.
