Ha, ha.  RS does an actual look at the bomb "suspect" and those who realize he looks like their idea of the right kind of person loose it.  Also, those who don't read RS magazine join in, just because.  Cold, hard truth doesn't sit well with a lot of folks in the current American generation/ society.

From the redlit thread:

here to help:They are both losers. They are both murderers. Anyone with half a brain knows that. Anyone who doesn't is an idiot. That's that. Freaking out about a stupid selfie is pointless. Find out who the older brother was trained by and Seal Team those mother f*ckers. THAT'S what people should be talking about. Or how about all that weird sh*t about the kid who got killed while being interrogated? Or the dude they supposedly killed and sprinkled with pot? What's going on with THOSE stories? WHY THE F*CK ARE WE TALKING ABOUT A STUPID PICTURE???!!!


no, seriously, I would love those things to be asked and according to the RS article, the older brother tried to get in with the Islamist fighters in Chechnya and even they said he was an idiot and that it wasn't their fight. But as it is, we're a fickle people this far north. We're jumping at shadows and picking fights where no fight was needed. It's our mentality, we can take on the world because *ARRRRRRRRRRGH* BOSTON STRONG

Seriously, I have all the sympathy in the world for the victims of the bombing, but this city/statewide victimization is a load of crap. Thankfully it's not at 9/11 levels but this is pretty sad that we've gotten to this point all because of some magazine cover

Who would have thought that by bringing massive amounts of attention to something one could increase sales.

Overblown issue was overblown. I'm a RS subscriber. When my copy arrived in the mail, what became apparent and seems the ZOMG media outrage didn't convey was that the picture was very low-res and fuzzy. Not at all complimentary or "glamorous." It was a crappy cell phone selfy that had all the quality of an ATM surveillance photo. Yeah, OK, he had the touseled hair and pouty face thing going on, but that was just how the kid looked.

And the article, on balance, was pretty good. Talked to a lot of the guy's friends, and tried to piece together how an otherwise pretty normal immigrant kid with plenty of opportunity in life could become a deranged monster.
