Re: Explosion at the Boston Marathon (NSFW Graphic Images ITT)

I'm sure law enforcement will be interviewing every single one of those guys carrying a huge backpack around the area in the time leading up to the bombing.

I can guarantee you law enforcement is doing the same picture analysis. The internet still has a lot to contribute potentially though. There's no substitute for hundreds of millions of people having access to review stuff.

Norwegian media had his manifesto and knew of Breivik hours before they published anything, I'm fairly sure they had the info before 2+2. They refer to take some caution, which is why you won't see them posting pictures of spectators in Boston with comments like "this guy has big clothes and a scruffy beard, kind of a Una Bomber-type" or "this middle-eastern looking fellow can be seen with a black backpack, while in this picture where most of his lower body is hidden we see no backpack".

He is perhaps holding it? You can't see what is in his hands in that picture.

Is it standard terrorist operating procedure to keep your orange juice with your bomb? Seems like I wouldn't do that if I were one of those guys. Or maybe I would just to throw off people like me who would think that you aren't doing that?

Anyway, bearded guy much creepier IMO. Also the puffy jacket guy looks suspicious:

sorry dude. Edited to add nsfw tag. Mods can just delete if they wish.


Turned on TV to see a UHaul presumabely stolen parked outside someplace in Oklahoma.

NY Post, "Investigators are trying to identify a white man in his 30s seen on video surveillance at both bombing locations before the blasts"

That's your man, I bet.

Given the NY Post's track record so far, I'm going to hold out for a source that hasn't been known to make **** up WRT this story. At this point, they are a non-source.

That lady outlined in the yellow box creeps me out. Looks like a mannequin actually.

4chan found this. The guy in the red is the Saudi national. The guy in the yellow seems to have an exact match for the backpack, and is holding it weird.






The internet and the individuals that comprise it continue to make government obsolete. Awesome.

Re: Explosion at the Boston Marathon (NSFW Graphic Images ITT)

I am curious as to how they know the backpack that has been shredded is the same backpack that contained an IED in it. Given the carnage the IED caused, wouldn't most backpacks close to the IED when it went off be shredded? And those pictures just be wild speculation?
