Posted on 04/17/2013 11:15:52 AM PDT by 2ndDivisionVet
An arrest has been made in the Boston bombings investigation based on two videos showing images of the suspect, a federal law enforcement source told CNN's Fran Townsend.
Boston University graduate student Lingzu Lu has been identified by the school as the third person who died in Monday's bombings at the Boston Marathon.....
(Excerpt) Read more at edition.cnn.com ...
Someone just glancing at this might easily think that Lingzu Lu is the suspect.
Horrible crime. I wonder if support for the death penalty will go up in Massachusets?
Let’s see what we have....
Handy with ingredients and cooking items
Must be Emeril Lagasse!
CNN may have jumped the gun on this one. NBC just quoted someone from the Attorneys office in Boston, saying that no arrests were made.
We can be pretty sure he is not white.
This will be prosecuted as a federal offense. The state won’t even be given a chance.
Terrorists are more afraid of prison than dying.
CNN, home of Wolf Blitzer, Fareed Zakaria and Piers Morgan jump the gun? Surely you jest!
Yes...when I first saw the article, I had to read it again for clarity.
FOX reporting an arrest made too, and CBS on the radio here saying NO arrest has been made yet.
on their site; now it's gone. Fox just pulled it, no arrest.
Whoever it was, they “took it up a notch” didn’t they?
I may be off base here, but I don’t see that many bomb placements without a team. If one guy was running around making deliveries by himself, it would seem that someone would have taken notice early on.
That one bag by the stand there at the finish line should have caused people to take notice anyway. It was a cardinal violation of modern day ‘suspicious package’ rules.
They jumped the gun again... No arrest yet. Freakin’ CNN..
I guess they found some “non-Arabic” guy, finally.
Taken into custody and charged are two different things. The media confuses the two all the time.
It may be that someone has been taken into custody, but not yet charged. Some in the media hear “taken into custody” and think “arrested”, others hear “not yet charged” and think “not arrested yet”.
Didn’t these dummies know there were cameras everywhere?
I bet they’re still holding out for a white guy.
If the suspect were white, CNN would splash it across your flatscreen in letters six feet high,
The newsies are being so secretive, becauset the bomber is not a white male heterosexual Christian gun owning Tea Party conservative with a Gadsden Flag in his yard.
CNN reported their source told them it was a
dark skinned person who they arrested. We’ll see.
* RTRS - NO ARRESTS MADE YET IN BOSTON BOMB INVESTIGATION - GOVERNMENT, LAW ENFORCEMENT SOURCEShttp://live.reuters.com/Event/Boston_Marathon_Explosion
Why would they announce it before they physically had the person?
LMAO.... Fox news is now reporting that there have been no arrests.
INCOMPETENT FOOLS, all.
"CNN and Fox News have reported an arrest has been made, while the Associated Press and Boston Globe say the bombing suspect is in custody and expected in federal court. However, CBS and NBC are reporting there has not been an arrest in the case.
Boston PD via the police scanner confirms an arrest
That’s what we get for believing everything from the media..I am guilty as charged as well..they probably have the guy on camera but dont know who he is
CNN: John King says reputable law enforcement told him suspect was “dark skinned male.” Adds “some people will take offense at that.”
They found out he was a Muslim so they turned him loose...
Megyn Kelley trying to keep it transparent. Two LE people said an arrest was made. Two other LE sources said ‘no arrest’.
The FBI has cancelled one presser - moved it to 5:00 p.m.
Now Megyn ‘officially confirming suspect not ID’d and no arrest imminent.
If their was more than one suspect, the announcement of an arrest might cause the others to go dark and flee. I can see why LEO’s might want to squelch such a story.
Now no arrest.
Looks like Obama got to Police/FBI.
Let the dark skinned muzzie go. Find a white guy.
An arrest does not mean guilt...especially if you have brown skin.
No they aren’t. They’re slow because they want to get it right. Remember Sandy Hook? I remember Freepers SCREAMING for the name of the suspect to be released. (In the desperate hope it was a Muslim). And then a name was released. And it was the wrong guy (the perps brother). Take a deep breath.
According to Rush, DHS has just said NO ARREST has been made.
CNN and NBC, et al, are walking their arrest statements back.
OMG, I LOVE IT!!!
And his name is................................
breaking on the radio here also, no arrest has been made yet.
If he has any white relatives or ancestors, he'll be described as a "White African American", "White Hispanic", "White Muslim", or White whatever.
A dead tight alibi...
So the idiots are ALL guessing...good going.
the Boston news station WCVB has a reporter ‘tweeting’ that the fed courthouse is very active right now, DHS vehicle is there, crowd has formed etc....so I think that is what the other alphabet crowd is using as their “source”
Or if he has been arrested, read him his rights, get him an attorney, a Koran, cable TV, a subscription to TV guide, an ethnically-appropriate menu, access to workout facilities, telephone privileges, etc.
