One Of The Boston Marathon Bomb Suspects Was Wearing A Bridgestone Golf Cap
The Smoking Gun ^ | 4-18-2013

Posted on 04/18/2013 4:47:18 PM PDT by Sir Napsalot

One of the two suspects being sought by the FBI in connection with the Boston Marathon bombings is wearing a cap with the Bridgestone Golf logo.

As seen in surveillance images released this afternoon, suspect #1’s black cap has the capital letter “B” on its front and a white chevron between the hat’s bill and crown.

As seen below, a photo taken by a race spectator captured the suspect as he walked past the Forum restaurant on Boylston Street (where the second explosion occurred). That image shows that the back of the man’s cap contained four white figures, likely "B330."

As seen here, a similar black Bridgestone cap carries those numbers, a reference to the company’s B330 golf ball.

I see the media is more focused on liberal yuppie Boston and not the small town in a republican state in the south.

MSLSD never even mentioned TX this morning and discussed the failed gun control which only 4% care about

And you’d think the “FBI” would have been able to tell us this, but I saw/heard no mention of the Bridgestone cap in their presser.....

They're (the liberal media) not alone.

Just heard that Pres. Obama didn't even bother contacting the Mayor of West, TX to see if there were any federal resources that would be of assistance until after noon today!

Possibly because it is some ‘interweb’ sleuth who identified it. The whole point of releasing the info to public, so that more brains and eyes can tell them much more quickly.

I saw somewhere where the other cap is a Titleist cap. Interesting when one considers the +$125 price of the pressure cookers versus a $25.00 6 quart cooker they could buy at WalMart.

the left look at the south and republicans states and small towns as a piece of crap while they lord over the likes of Chicago, NY City and Boston.

Makes me sick how the south and small towns are ignored by the elitist while the focus is on Boston TX has seen hundreds lose their homes, a massive blast which could be heard and felt 30 miles away and many who have lost lives but it seems all that carnage is nothing to these north east and Chicago elitist types.

I'm not sure why anyone is having an orgasm over identifying a hat...on a suspected terrorist.

It's a hat for crying out loud...!!

Ah yes someone wrote him a speech, he then read the speech and then days later went and read another speech with not much emotion and all this time his Janet when asked where is the Saudi and why did he go back to his country she refused to answer it;\\\His terms have been nothing but a massive cluster F@@@, foreign and domestic and yet he gets away with it all because of a community which is too dumb to see they’re worse off and because of a media which covers for their guy time and time again

Until I see the “after” photos ahowing the backpacks had been jettisoned, this doesn’t really prove anything. Suspects for questioning, perhaps that’s about all it means without those after photos.

Exactly!

The focus needs to be on pressure cookers.

Was it an automatic pressure cooker,

What was its capacity?

Was it registered?

Was it bought at a pressure cooker show at a flea market?

These are questions we need answered.

The funny part -weird, not ha ha- is that The Boston city limits are actually very small. Bostonians are comfortable though seeing their city as much larger than it is.

The Boston - NYC rivalry never made sense to me. The whole city could fit in southern Manhattan. As Paulie Walnuts once said, “it’s Scranton with clams.”

As for ignoring TX, well... The state elite in Boston ignore everyone who lives west of Rt 128, never mind TX.

We care about the hats because they can help us ID other photos of them in the crowd, and perhaps get a better image of his face.

If I were a Texan (*), I wouldn’t want him there.

All he brings is his pompous ass, with lots of tight securities and headaches. After making some photo ops and a speech he never cares and nobody can stomach, then he moves on.

FWIW...one of the experts said on one of the news shows (not sure which) that they have guy #2 putting down his lighter colored backpack, putting his hat on top of it, and walking away.

Now you can look for the hats in the other photos that were taken on the sidewalk that day. Two hats in proximity. Then focus on the faces.

That was my first thought exactly. They were probably bullied by the track team in high school.

It sure could be two white frat types, but bombing a bunch of strangers at a street race isn't something I'd expect except from lefty-bombers who hated the middle-classness of it all.

Re: pressure cooker

It needs more specific / professional knowledge for the partial presuure cooker, part of serial number, etc .....

Releasing the photos of these two guys, FBI is asking for public help, more eyes can see details that FBI agents might have missed.

This is nothing even remotely like a Columbine event. Columbine events are school kids killing their fellow students up close in school.

This event would be more akin to an Oklahoma City event. But IMO that is unlikely also. “White extremists” have a beef with the government, not the citizenry, and they would target a government building or workers, not random citizens.

To me this still looks more like what the Israelis have to deal with at the hands of Islamists. Maybe the Islamists are changing their MO and will in the future be going after soft targets in the U.S. I’m surprised it took them this long.

The Columbine killers turned out not to have been bullied; they were simply evil. According to Dave Cullen's book Columbine — superb, by the way — one was a psychopath and the other was a depressed follower. They formed what criminologists call “a criminal dyad”.
