NPR is confirming a 'person of interest' is being guarded by police at a boston hospital

sigdiamond2000: If your Weeners to things like this is to consider how it can be used against your political enemies, you are a failure as a human being.

please: Drew: Also folks - be aware that at this stage in the news cycle pretty much no one knows anything, and 90% of everything's gonna be issued a correction later by MSM.  That said it still helps to know what's going on now

This.  And it's the early, entirely wrong statements that will be still be getting repeated months later.


And the asshole nutjobs will use those early contradictory reports as "proof" of their farked up conspiracy "theories."
 
2013-04-15 05:46:43 PM

mab1823: As someone who was near OKC during that bombing, take the reports of a Saudi national being in custody with a heaping dose of skepticism until confirmed.  Reports immediately after the OKC bombing talked about a car-ful of Middle Eastern types speeding away from the blast area.


I remember that, what a farce the reporting was after that.  All kinds of misinformation from the media just so they could get something out there and draw viewers/readers,.

Real damn shame this happened today, and my thoughts and prayers go out to everyone involved.  Just had a shooting at one of our community colleges.up in the Roanoke area.  Some crazy shiat in the world right now and I'm not entirely sure I like it all that much.

fredklein: hardinparamedic: fredklein: hardinparamedic: Alex Jones just released a statement that the US government did it as a false flag.

Can someone kick that parasite in the face

Actually, he said this:

"...the fact that no firearms were used in the attack may indicate this was NOT part of a false flag effort by the government to try to blame gun owners."

gotcha. He's an attention whoring dick then.

I stick with my original statement. Boot to face.

Of course. Let's just ignore all the unusual things that happened in Boston today... like the national guard being deployed along the route, the bomb sniffing dogs that were at the finish line, and so on, just because you don't like the person pointing them out. 'I don't like you, thus you are lying. Boot to the headface!'. I'm so glad we have open-minded people like you around....


Um, those are pretty standard practices now for any high-profile event.  Bomb sniffing dogs went through freaking Bracket Town in Atlanta during the Final 4.

yelmrog: PunGent: DarnoKonrad: Sid_6.7: Insert_Obscure_80's_Pop_Culture_Reference_Here: Apparently some people think the IRA was involved because of this: http://www.thedailybeast.com/articles/2012/07/10/boston-college-s-sec r et-tapes-could-bring-ira-exposure-and-retribution.html

Some people are idiots. This is nothing like the IRA bombs sh*t.

Well they are out of practice.

/really doubt it's the IRA

Me too.  If it's at all IRA related, they're down to their C team.  This is bad, but not apocalyptic or anything.

A lot of support for the IRA came from the USA back in the bad old days.  I doubt they'd bomb anyone inside the US unless it was an assassination of someone they really REALLY wanted dead.


The IRA usually called in warnings so no one would be killed, unless some kind of miscommunication occurred such as happened in Omagh.

Uh, those are pretty standard these days for large events in metropolitan areas, especially events spread out location-wise and involving lots of foreigners.

No conspiracy theory required.


But I'm sure plenty of other people will see these things and draw the same (idiotic) conclusions: ZOMFG! TEH GUBMINT KNEW ALL ALONG!!!!!

Please. Tell me you're not stupid enough to jump to conclusions like that?

You sound stupid and paranoid at the moment, not "open minded" because you choose to champion a paranoid, offensive conspiracy theorist with a habit of making shiat up

Mikey1969: pute kisses like a man: and, it's more that a saudi who has shrapnel wounds is under guard at the hospital.  the news folk seemed to have decided he was a suspect.

Holy Jesus, that could jjust as easily be an innocent bystander under protection from misinformed jackasses blaming him for it. Yeah, the first few hours of a news event suck, because everyone is falling all over themselves to Scoop everyone else, and they don't care if the data is true or false. It shotgun style journalism...


it can be worse than that.  after the norway shootings, the norwegian police and media were making public press releases that the shooter was a white norwegian guy, not related to muslim terrorists, but it wasn't until a day later that the world media decided to drop the muslim terrorist angle.

i read an interesting article in the new yorker interviewing a norwegian journalist who was breaking the story.  he was trying to correct american and british news sources to say that they know who the suspect is, he's a white guy, and it's not a muslim thing. but no one seemed to listen until the next day -- the journalist's theory was that the muslim terrorist angle was getting more news, and it had created its own story.

NeoCortex42: I have a feeling that anybody who doesn't immediately comply with police instructions or so much as sneezes the wrong way will be in custody while things are being figured out.


Yeah, updates say the Boston Common thing is not an incident.

Now if I was in charge (President), I'd be looking for celebrations being held in other countries, you know, the American Flag burning types, and land a bomb right in the middle of them.

If they are celebrating, they are enemies, and quite possibly involved somehow.
That's what Ted Nugent would do.

As much as I would like to do that, it would be irresponsible and wrong to retaliate like that.
But if we find out who... we need to retaliate really, really hard.

Geotpf: uknesvuinng: The NY Post story about a suspect in custody is bullshiat.

Maybe.  The FBI refused to confirm or deny the report.  (That is, it could be the Feds have him and the locals don't know anything.)  However, it's a bit early for the Feds to be on top of things already.


Absolutely! After all, look how efficient the Dallas police Dpt. was on 11/22/63!! (Snort)

I'm not sure if this the right time, but, I'd like to give my support to my fellow American farkers. Hope you're all well, that you're families are safe and well, and that whoever did this, pays dearly. I'm tired of terrorist trash making the world unsafe. I'm not scared. I'm pissed.

kmmontandon: Uh, those are pretty standard these days


Perhaps. I've never heard of bomb sniffing dogs at the finish line of a marathon before- what are they looking for? Runners who just ran 26 miles with a pipebomb in their shorts?? And why the National Guard? Doesn't Posse Comitatus apply? (ie: can't use military for police work?)

On the other hand, if they KNEW there were going to be bombs near the finish line- that would explain the sniffer dogs, and the NG. Of course, if they KNEW, why didn't they do/say anything??

This is how conspiracy theories get started.

Lying? Nobody said he was lying. We were saying he is a parasite and an attention whore who took to Twitter to spew his crazy horseshiat just minutes after a national tragedy. If you feel the need to line up behind him go right ahead, the boot won't wear out.

I hope to holy f*ck that it isn't true. Because if it is, it narrows the suspect list drastically and to a very ugly subsection of Americans.
