Individual seen walking on roof directly overhead as bomb goes off at Boston Marathon

FULL TITLE: Who is this person? Individual seen walking on roof directly overhead as bomb goes off at Boston Marathon

A picture posted on Twitter shows an individual walking on the roof directly overlooking one of the blasts at the Boston Marathon.

The picture of the mystery person was posted shortly after the terror attack and raises the eerily possibility that one of the perpetrators watched as the carnage was unleashed.

Law-enforcement sources told the New York Post that a 20-year-old Saudi man was detained at a Boston hospital.

Either watch, or some how set it up from that position by remote control device of some sort. Conjecture.

Someone watching the finish line of the Boston Marathon hardly seems unusual.

My high schooler showed me this pic earlier this afternoon. I guess it’s gone viral on Twitter?

Being that he was the only one up there yes. If there was a crowd I would say they were just watching the end of the race.

Anything is possible. Hopefully the facts will be forthcoming soon regardless of those responsible.

This was well after the elite runners had finished, so unless he knew someone in the race watching a bunch of amateur runners seems unlikely.

I’ve read so many accounts by now I don’t remember which one it was, BUT, someone at the race said that he was surprised by how many canine units were at the start and finish of the race. This man said he was told it was ‘just an exercise’, but he suspects the cops heard a rumor of trouble but didn’t want to scare anyone.

Highly speculative, but reportedly a Saudi was acting hinky and hurt in the blast. If he planted the device(s), he may have been slated as “would be”, that is to say unwitting, martyr by the person with the trigger. Would you expect more honor among terrorists?

They should check the nearby cell towers to see if there were two calls from that spot at that time.

The two blasts were separated by just enough time to dial and connect to a detonating receiver.

Watching events from rooftops is perfectly normal activity. During the Boston Fourth of July celebration, people in buildings with a view of the Esplanade will often throw rooftop parties.

You could detonate cell phone IED’s using WIFI from another smart phone from that distance even if cell service was shut down.

In a freedom to move country like ours, it is very foolish and downright wasteful & stupid to monitor every potential terrorist.

The only way to stop cowardly terrorism is to punish the country where the terrorists received training, funding, sanctuary etc. By punish I do not mean ordinary folks, but the rulers who give support to terrorists.

Everything else is a giant waste of money, will not stop terrorism, and people will be forced to remove their shoes at the airports including grandmothers and children, creating a giant cadre of unionized tax payer funded employees.

My feelings exactly. If my family and I lived above the finish line or near it we would watch and video from on high.

Were the roofs cordoned off for fear of this? One person does seem odd.

If he were watching normally, he would be leaning against the
rail gawking and taking his own pics.. this guy is hiding his face and walking in a low-profile way.

I’m having a hard time seeing “ordinary folks” anymore. Are they the one’s who cheer in the streets, pass out candy, loot and string bodies on bridges, rape reporters, practice sharia, and on and on?

I see victory as full and unconditional surrender...no nation building or post relief. It may sound harsh, but I’ve listened to the surviving WWII vets in my family and take their words and experiences to heart, mind, and soul.

What do the say about an Arsonist - one of the spectators always stands out in a crowd whom is watching the building burn. the person draws attention to himself/herself so they may eventually get caught.

Just wonder where were William Ayers and Bernadette Dohrn - the Weather Underground Terrorists?

On NBC Early Today they just (4AM EDST) ran a clip of a bomb going off. It is filmed at street level but as the bomb goes off the camera jerks upward. It clearly shows a figure standing calmly on a roof top and looking downward.

It's jerky and quick but the startling thing to me is that the figure is obviously watching and not reacting to the blast.

I saw that posted on another site not long after it happened. I don’t know what type of building it was or if it was an office or residential builing. If so, it could be the guy was just out getting fresh air. I don’t know, though. It does look suspicious. Possibly he was involved in the bombing and was overseeing his “work.”

If i gave a crap about the B marathon and had access to a roof I would probably go up and watch too.

The thicker crowd of runners come in at the time the bomb went off, thus increasing the number of people waiting and the number of runners.

How is the view of the street from the front of that building? Looks to me like it’s blocked by a wall.

It may or may not be anything. The fact that there’s only one person indicates that there wasn’t a party going on. However, when my daughters lived in the Brighton section they used to watch the Boston Marathon from up there. Lots of young people did.

And by the second blast, cell towers were jammed with 911 & other calls, interfering with further dial-a-detonator calls to remaining devices.
