These pics are going viral:

Do you guys think you could fit a pressure cooker in these backpacks?

This makes me uncomfortable.

We have no idea who these people are but merely suggesting that they could be involved can spell trouble for them and their personal lives. People will act on bad information and people end up hurt, falsely accused, and lives ruined.

Leave the CSI to the FBI.

My thoughts exactly. Can you imagine what will happen to those guys identified? They could be killed. Tormented. And... they may very well be innocent!

Take those pics with a truck load of salt. Those are from 4chan users thinking they are CSI. :rolleyes:

of course. Im just saying the volume of pics of the bomb site is at least somewhat promising of catching the person.

Infowars is a parody website. You're not meant to take it seriously.

The race between getting it first and getting it right claims another victim.

It's infowars, getting it right is not part of their agenda

I wasn't talking about infowars. I wouldn't waste valuable time talking about those nuts. I meant the media's rush to claim an arrest had been made before they could absolutely confirm it. Too many outlets are so concerned with getting the news first ,it usually comes at the expense of accuracy. As we've seen here.

In fact Infowars is the conspiracy. It deliberately scares people into believing that the government is overly powerful and unstoppable, scaring people into believing that the government wants to take away guns to control people when it's actually about public safety. If the government can't even pass gun control legislation like universal background checks—which are supported by the vast majority of the public—then it's never going to be able to tackle the serious issues facing society. All it takes to achieve real change is for people to stop voting for the major parties and to vote for independent candidates.
