I’m sure that Rachel Madcow and MSNBC will conclude that it was a member of the Tea Party Nation.

Slipping down an alley??

Looks like a busy street to me.

” unidentified white man in his 40s slipping down an alley and taking off a shirt”

What alley. That guy looks like he is in the middle of the sidewalk with people passing him left & right. What person trying to run from a criminal act is going to stop in the middle of a busy sidewalk and change their shirt? I am not buying this!

There’s no “slipping down an alley” here.

It’s a guy on the sidewalk taking off his outer shirt because it’s too hot.

There better be more to this...

Perhaps the original videotape isn't as grainy and unclear, but from that video, I don't think you can conclusively say that the man isn't Arab, Latino, black, or mixed race to say nothing of describing him as "white".

My thought exactly. All I could tell was that he wasn't black or Asian. Other than that, he could be from anywhere.

"But know this, that in the last days perilous times will come: for men will be lovers of themselves, lovers of money, boasters, proud, blasphemers, disobedient to parents, unthankful, unholy, unloving, unforgiving, slanderers, without self-control, brutal, despisers of good, traitors, headstrong, haughty, lovers of pleasure rather than lovers of God, having a form of godliness but denying its power. And from such people turn away, for his name is Obama."

But seeBS declared him a ‘caucasian’ or ‘white man’. So, it couldn’t be a muslim, because Islam is a race, doncha know. But white guys, especially older ones, are the opposition to the Regime!

That’s the video they are claiming to know is a white male in his 40”s?!???

The best you could possibly glean from it is a medium to light skinned dark haired male who appears to have a bald spot on top of his head.

You can’t make out anything more from it.

This is going to end up just like the DC sniper case.

Political correctness is going to take over and while everyone is looking for a 540 year old white male.

SOme 20 to 30 year old medium to light complexion middle eastern male is going to get way scoot free!

So there’s a white guy(?) - first off, he could be Arab. There are plenty of pale-skinned Arabs in this country, and a surveillance camera could wash out any skin tone to begin with. Secondly, it’s a picture of a guy taking off his shirt on the sidewalk and moving along. How does this equate to being a suspect? Because he looks back at the smoking truck? I’d look back at a truck if it was smoking, too, and then I’d get the hell out of there. And if I’m the bomber, I’m not going to stop and CHANGE in front of EVERYONE while a fuse is lit. If you’re trying to conceal your identity after the fact, letting everyone watch you change makes no sense.

I think this is a red herring. They’ve got a patsy who they can use, for now, as a diversion to keep people from panicking.

This is a goose chase. The ‘person of interest’ angle lets the MSM rant about the perp being white—the only officially sanctioned race to make TV allegations.

How the hell do they know he is a white man?

Did they profile?
Straight Posture.
Slim build
Smallish butt
Well fitting jeans
Jeans around waist
Bald spot on back of head

They sure as hell couldn’t make out the color of his skin or nationality.

I hope whitey taking his kids out for ice cream aren’t harassed.

I donno.. Liberal college professor, basement dweller, seems like one of the escapees from PJ's ant farm. I mean, geeze, thought to take off the vin from the dash, left the one on the engine, included fertilizer, but didn't do it right, M80’s and gasoline safety cans, as well as backyard propane tanks?

I'd have to imagine that it's gotta be a liberal who doesn't watch CSI as that supports the oppressive police state, and misses Mythbusters because Keith Oberman’s on at that time...

CNN had a woman anchor who is often there, I did not get her name. She is a dark complected young woman with a pretty face. She had on an "expert" in these things and he looked the real deal. She prefaced her original question about his knowledge about such things with this statement.

Could it be something like the bomb in the Olympic Park in 1996?

I think that is the gist of what she fed the man with. I believe it was Eric Rudolph that left the back pack at that park. Richard Jewell the security man ,was slandered by some of the press. He was harassed by the authorities, yet he was the hero doing his job.

The media want this absolute psychopath to be a white male, preferably with right wing connections, that the very fillings in their teeth are nearly dropping out.
