The online activism organization Change.org currently hosts a petition to President Obama asking him to guarantee wrongfully accused Boston Marathon bombing suspect Dzhokhar Tsarnaev a fair trial, citing a lack of evidence to condemn Tsarnaev.
Change.org, which receives funding from groups including Amnesty International and the Humane Society, features a petition entitled, Petition to guarantee Dzhokhar Tsarnaev the right to a fair trial, created by Anita Temisheva of Chicago, Illinois.
The petition has already netted more than 2,000 signatures.
We believe that within the chaos caused by the Boston Marathon explosion, two young men were wrongfully accused of something they did not do, and one of them has lost his life before even getting the opportunity of a proper trial. We do not wish to see blood of yet another innocent victim, someone who, by U.S. law, is innocent until proven guilty, reads the petitions introductory statement.
It is vital to end this persecution, as all the conflicting information shown by the media, and footage from the incident, seen by people from all corners of the world, doesnt manifest itself as enough evidence to condemn Dzhokhar Tsarnaev of this heinous crime. You promised to the world that you would get to the bottom of this, and we hope you keep your word. We want evidence. We want truth. We want justice, the petition says......

What the Hell happened to this country?
uhhhh, they through grenades and another pressure cooker bomb at the cops. Pretty damning stuff if you ask me. Our enemies will want to exploit this to confuse us.
perhaps the organization shoudl be investigated as possible terror suspects themselves
No lack of evidence from the public’s perspective.
Here’s a nice parallel site:
Those were “noisemakers” since he was still celebrating “Patriots Day” as all good Tea Party/NRA/Militia members do, naturally....
“What the Hell happened to this country?”
There are probably more details than that, but in a nutshell- democrats got control of both houses of Congress. Things have gotten worse by magnitudes since then. (They weren’t good to begin with)
Yeah. And the explosives in their possession were intended for peaceful means.
The rotten oak tree from Atlas Shrugged
The great oak tree had stood on a hill over the Hudson, in a lonely spot of the Taggert estate. Eddie Willers, aged seven, liked to come and look at that tree. It had stood there for hundreds of years, and he thought it would always stand there. Its roots clutched the hill like a fist with fingers stuck into the soil, and he thought if a giant were to seize it by the top, he would not be able to uproot it, but would swing the hill and the whole of the earth with it, like a ball at the end of a string. He felt safe in the oak tree's presence; it was a thing that nothing could change or threaten; it was his greatest symbol of strength.
One night, lightning struck the oak tree. Eddie saw it the next morning. It lay broken in half, and he looked into its trunk as into the mouth of a black tunnel. The trunk was only an empty shell; its heart had rotted away long ago; there was nothing inside - just a thin gray dust that was being dispersed by the whim of the faintest wind. The living power had gone, and the shape of it left had not been able to stand without it.
It was all them Bible-Klingin’, gun-toten’, middle-aged WHITE GUYS in their pick-em-up trucks done did it.
The voices in my head tell me so.
Except when my tinfoil had is on. I can’t hear them then.
