IS THIS THE BOMBER? Man With Black Backpack Before Bombing Then Without Backpack
The Gateway Pundit ^ | 4/16/13 | Jim Hoft

Posted on 04/16/2013 1:56:01 PM PDT by cotton1706

These photos from yesterday’s marathon were forwarded to me from a trusted source and came from a Japanese Flickr account.

This photo here shows the Boston crowd before the bombing… And then after the bombing.

I don't know why a pressure cooker makes a bomb more than another pot would...

They would use a pressure cooker because they're made to hold pressure. An explosive inside a pressure cooker would intensify the effects.

A pressure cooker is a danger when used properly. I've seen more than a few FReepers say they won't use one.

Interesting, honestly I haven’t read much into this attack but heard yesterday on the radio that one of the bombs came from inside a hotel. Maybe after the explosion a vacuum is created and windows being broken from flying debris get sucked outward?

Next you’ll have to show your ID to buy a pressure cooker or the powers that be will place a permanent ban on the ownership of the little cookers.

Looks like about 6 people that are wearing backpacks in those pictures. There is a guy with a hat and a dark green backpack.

It would depend on bomb placement, and what structural obstructions are in the way to cause some of the glass to blow out as opposed to inwards.

There is also a dark skinned guy with a blue shirt and a Nike hat and a backpack who is looking at his cell phone.

Notice the female in the white jacket beside/behind the backpack guy. In the photo you posted, it appears she is with him- look at where her arm is and how her body is pointing toward him. You don’t stand that way next to strangers. She’s next to him in the other “before” photo, too. And if you look carefully, in the “after” photo, there is a white sleeve just to the viewer’s left - i assume that’s her, too.

So either the suspect is irresistible to strangers, or he brought along his girlfriend to bomb the Boston Marathon, or he’s just a dude watching the race. My guess is he’s just a dude watching the race with his girlfriend or a friend.

It was probably someone concealing a pressure cooker in a fake obesity suit—or maybe between a couple of real folds.

IS THIS THE BOMBER?

Considering the fact that the first 24 hours following an event such as this is filled with total misinformation, speculate all you want.

If you're right then you can post a vanity claiming you were the one who busted the guy....or whatever.......

FBI says the backpack would have been black. This guy’s is blue. Plus he still has it on in the second picture.

If you look next to the screen or window on the left side of Pack-2.jpg there appears to be a person-of-interest standing by a metallic looking case.

He's cradling the strap of the backpack in the crook of his arm in the second picture.

I also agree about his girlfriend being next to him.

The guy has a weird look as in HE is a SHE. There is something odd about the haircut and stance.
