Salon.com is praying for a white guy to be the perp:

These people are sick in the mind. Truly.

Fox said they were getting the first reports in from the Associated Press but they waited until their local Fox station in Boston confirmed the reports before confirming it nationally. AP sent a bulletin that there was an arrest and the man was on his way to Federal court in Boston. Left wing sites are in an uproar they could have the wrong person (whatever that means) and then that comment from King on CNN. Just have to wait to see how it goes.

What is killing me is that Fox seems to have based their initial report on info from the AP.

“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.”

I don’t think anyone is hoping that the Marathon Bomber is a Muslim. Instead, they are simply speculating as to what is most probable.

I just heard from your link that the media reports have not been confirmed and as far as he knows (whoever the LE talking) there was no arrest. Now, maybe that’s a CYA. Who knows.

I know. Why can't the information that is being shared be accurate. It's like they don't want to give the info to Fox and or the other web sites. CNN even said it was domestic terrorist. What is going on. Boston Police just said there has been no arrest.

However, sources are telling CBS News that a possible suspect has been only been “identified.”...

Orr said authorities have video of a man in a black jacket on a cell phone, wearing a gray hoodie and a white baseball cap backwards placing a black bag at the second bomb site outside of the Forum restaurant on Boylston Street and then leaving the area before that explosion.

Orr said the man was on the phone at the second bomb site when the first bomb exploded.

Orr said the FBI looked at time man was on his cell phone and then went back and scanned all the calls made in the area to track who they wanted to talk to.

Newsmedia doesn’t appear to understand the federal system.
A special agent can only arrest a person if there is a warrant or if a crime is committed in his presence.

Once they ID’d the person here, they US Attorney had to be called in. Take him into custody, bring him to federal court, and charge him.

CNN reported their source told them it was a dark skinned person who they arrested. We’ll see.

It hardly matters - the MSM and CNN have gotten in so many shots at Conservative Americans that we walk away bruised no matter who the monster is...

Boston PD just sent out a tweet saying that there have not been an arrest, per Fox.

Hey Salon, first of all the McVeys and Unibombers of this world are far and few in between and the reason they’re treated like “Lone Wolf” is because THEY ARE. Unlike Islamic terrorists who have cells organized around the world doing violent acts under the name of their religion and beliefs. It’s like the difference between a criminal doing a solo act, and one that is part of the Gambino crime family doing a crime on orders from the boss.

What f&*king morons.

The left think they’re so superior in intelligence because they all live and roam among other morons like themselves in major cities. They’re in a dummy bubble. Seriously, a child could tell you the difference between McVey and OBL.

It was not me that said that people may have speculated that the Sandy Hook killer was Muslim.

I just pointed out that no one is hoping that the Marathon Bomber is a Muslim.

Yeah, but the Unibombers - while being a total liberal - was NOT identified that way in the press. The MSM chose to see him in lone wolf terms. Not so when the monster's a conservative... And that's the problem. Any liberal could ‘break a few eggs to make an omelet’ and the press would do their dirty work... Joseph Stalin created the technique - standard leftest stuff...

This sounds like a lot of legal parsing. No one has been "arrested" or is in "custody." It could be that they are holding and questioning someone as a "witness" to what may have happened. No charges have been levied so it was not necessary to read them his Miranda warnings.

They could be using the time to go after some additional information on this guy and his connections. They could be raiding his apartment, looking at his passport files, etc.

Personally, I think they have the guy (s) and are now gathering the information to charge him. The leaked information was "true," but it was premature.
