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.co...5GyO/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.

No Arrest yet. CNN is backing off the arrest claim I guess

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.

Yes, round up the usual suspects. :rolleyes:

It's a good thing the FBI has more common sense and restraint than the masses on the internets.
