One of the suspects' hats may be this Bridgestone Golf hat:

I agree that suspect #1 is wearing a 'Bridgestone Golf' hat:

Any thoughts on suspect #2's cap? Could it be this 'Ralph Lauren' cap?

Here's a video frame of the 2 suspects:

Apparently, the bomber was some rich, white, right-winger guy who arrived in Boston after spending time down at Augusta watching the Masters! /sarc

I’m not real confident #2 is wearing a Ralph Lauren cap, but the Bridgestone Golf cap on #1 is absolutely correct.

Both caps are now identified.

I agree on that. I have a couple of RL hats similar and they are fitted, that one isn’t.

The Bridgestone one though appears to be a match.

Albeit, not sure how much help those are, they are very common brands.

Disgrunted gay male runway models who joined the Occupy movement! Would explain much of this.

They aren't exactly designer. Both are general sporting good store hats. I would bet most guy freepers here have a closet full of similar ones. I have several like the RL one.

Never mind. I saw another photo and it is a RL one. I guess they have fitted and non fitted hats.

One thing this shoots down is the ‘Lone Wolf’ argument. Based on the age, it could be a lot of things. Islamist, eco-terrorist (albeit, targeting a running event doesn’t fit what they usually do), Occupy types (like the eco-terrorist, not exactly their type of target). Usually a nut though is a loner so working in pairs like this implies coordination and at least less than an anti-social personality or mental illness. The age could indicate either a religious motivation like an Islamist or something like Anonymous (not their style). Too young for ‘right wing anti-government type’ the media pushes. Those are usually old loners. Keeps coming around to an Islamist type terrorist it seems. There is the possibility of some unknown cult like Branch Dividians that would attract young members.

Of course, we could have a Columbine type of case. A pair of young, isolated nutjobs working together.

Suspect Number 2 might be wearing a false nose or maybe he’s a big-nosed Muzz.

I know WHITE when I see WHITE and these guys AIN’T white! They are of Middle Eastern decent. Any WHITE person looking at these images objectively would NOT call these guys WHITE yet FauxNews keeps saying they’re WHITE! As WHITE as Faisal Shazad, maybe.

You can probably buy the Bridgestone one at Wal Mart. The Ralph Lauren one is at most Foot Lockers, Dillards, or Macys (and probably a dozen street vendors every block in Boston).

First impression to a lot is they stand out but they are so popular, I’m not sure how much they will help.

I hope more photos turn up. Probably out of the country by now but at least they’ll get ID’d. Iranian or Pakistani, IMO.

It would VERY interesting to see how the media would spin that if they were part of the Occupy wall street terrorist movement that the twice unconstitutionally elected Kenyan and professional psychopath Nancy Pelosi both vocally supported.

Too young, but I can see they being students inspired by one.

The thing that still gets me is the location of choosing. It isn’t a target by someone who hates the military, hates the government, hates any specific religion, hates ‘corporations’ or other targets.

It is a target of high visibility with a diverse population group. That is usually the type of target of Islamist. Shopping malls, buses, subways, Times Square etc. They go for visible and what will impact a variety of people.

An eco-terrorist would target a polluter or corporation.
An anti-government type would target some sort of government or law enforcement entity.
Occupy or something like them would target a big corporation or bank.
A nut like a Columbine attack would target something of meaning to them (this one is so vague it is always a possibility.).

Most likely a couple of Bill Ayers students doing some extra credit stuff. It is the end of the semester after all.

Yep! All we been seeing and hearing all week is this gun control, gun control, gun control and the Kenyan trotting out the families of those Sandy hook kids as if he gives a damn about the kids. But here is this monster Gosnell murdering kids by the thousands and nary a peep by the media nor the Kenyan. Did you read this article? The babies were breathing.......

http://www.breitbart.com/Big-Government/2013/04/18/Gosnell-Employee-I-Saw-Ten-Babies-Breathe-Before-They-Were-Killed

And because I am against someone murdering thousands of babies this means I am a participant in “The war against women” according to liberals. But supporting the 2nd amendment, supporting the constitution, means I want to kill kids.

Good analysis...I'm defonitely thinking Islo T-cell.

Also, having been to a couple of these big races here in Atlanta (daughter is a runner) they are amazingly crowded and the crowd is always moving one way or another it seems. Add to that, many people are there to support their runners (friends/relatives) and lots will have backpacks or duffel bags full of "support items" like extra clothing for the runner, extra water, some sandwiches, a good camera, even a bottle of champagne...so seeing folks with big bags is routine.

Since it's near impossible to do anything at a high profile sporting event in a controlled stadium - this was probably their next best opportunity.

prayers for the injured.

I just can’t fathom ilk like the Columbine nutjobs pulling off something as well planned and coordinated as this.

Most of the Columbine type nutjobs still live at home (because they are mentally imbalanced and can’t live on their own) and you’d think Mommy and Daddy would notice junior buying or ordering strange things like pressure cookers and electronic circuitry and assembling a bomb with said materials in the basement. Often, nutjobs like these act on impulse. Even though they may have been disgruntled for a long time, they don’t plan out sophisticated attacks.

The attack has the hallmarks of Islamic terrorism (except for the suicide vest - which would have been discovered in a pat down). If these two are the perpetrators, you can bet they didn’t act on their own. There was a mastermind directing the action down to the minute.

First, they both seem kind of geekily dressed (like dressing up to go to the beach)- most people there are in jeans - it’s a Massachussetts holiday for cryin out loud! #1 spent maybe ten minutes in the mens section at Walmart!... And then there’s #2’s hat... he likes his hair long, and the way he’s wearing it just doesn’t match his look... he bought a large size to fit around his hair, but no one wears a big bulky hat like that... These guys dressed to “fit in”, but they stand out to me. Just a thought.

And the other guy is right behind him partially behind two girls. He doesn’t have the glasses on anymore, but it’s the same pants, jacket and hat sans bp.
