#BREAKING: According to @WuWCVB, an arrest in #BostonMarathon bombing is imminent or has already taken place.
It’s awful how divided this country has become. Half the country is sweating bullets and hoping the suspect will be a certain color.
“Lee Harvey Oswald”
very concerning if the perp gets away because the Feds leaked this news! Did someone do it on purpose to help the dude get away? Could also signal a riff between the local cops and the Feds.
But as I posted it is changed to BREAKING NEWS: CONFLICTING REPORTS ABOUT ARREST OF BOSTON BOMBING SUSPECT
If the suspect were just an American with a dark tan, or an African American, I think there would be little reason to fear that reporting this would be "inflammatory."
I've had to outcall...I mean make a call for comfort.
Onyx..I do think their has been arrest and that this media confuddle is simply to process the guy without media swarm or the wrong people showing up at the time processing.
All local stations here in Boston are reporting no arrest but there are about a hundred people outside the federal court house waiting for the guy to be brought in. There’s supposed to be a presser here @5pm and we were told they would release the name at that time.
The era of 0bama: LEAK, LEAK, LEAK.. Jeopardize your mission.. LEAK, LEAK, LEAK.. What a sad time we’re in.
I have a feeling they have the perp in custody, and have for quite some time... but Obama needs to make a call to Saudi Arabia before there can be an official “arrest”.
I suppose if Obama was going to declare him an enemy combatant and ship him off to Gitmo it might not be technically termed an “arrest”.
Fat chance of that though.
Yep. The best info came out early on from the local law enforcement. It is the internet and social media sleuths who don't want to be Benghazied who have been doing all the work.
CB saying he was wearing black shirt, grey hoodie and a white baseball cap on backwards. Cellphone signals match w his movements.
See video in center here:
Update - there are many conflicting reports. It’s possible that:
A. A suspect has been identified
B. A suspect is in custody
C. A suspect has been arrested
D. None of the above
Some of the news agencies (AP, Fox, etc.) are still claiming an arrest has been made. Dept of Homeland Security and Boston PD are saying no arrest has been made. If the latter, that doesn’t eliminate A or B above. Will update when there’s more info
This is where FR shines.. Long threads, rambling thoughts. Like this one. LOL
“”””That claim is pure trollish drivel.”””””
That is from an individual named “anonymous” and its posted on the internet. What makes you think its not true?
Thanks for that info, rockabyebaby.
The Saudi suspect was a non-issue after Kerry met with some Saudi big wig in a closed-to-the-press meeting yesterday. But we’re not supposed to figure that out since we all just fell off the turnip truck.
The bad news for the radical left A.K.A “the left” is that he appears not to be a white Tea Party Activist like they were Praying to their Messiah to deliver. The Good News is that some liberal university just identified the newest member of the faculty.
Yes. I saw that too.
But it may be that the initial arrest be on “unrelated” charges, like cell phone theft or overstaying an expired student visa.
BTTT!! Bingo..this sounds like a massive intelligence failure! The guy and his cell are probably getting on a plane right now or escaping. thanks federal leakers and media shills!!
This is what happens when you let the Muslim Brotherhood into positions of power in our intelligence and administration apparatus.
Boston Police Dept.
Despite reports to the contrary there has not been an arrest in the Marathon attack.
Tweet from 10 mins. ago.
It still sounds cryptic to me, like the government is trying to spin their story. Color me skeptical.
the exit has been disguised as a power button. Push and hold until the screen goes blank.
I don’t agree with all the posts here. But I do have the option of skipping them.
Boston PD says NO ARREST but there will still be a presser @5pm. The crowd is getting bigger at the court house.
“””If they fingered him and have not arrested him,”””
Then they have got a lawsuit on their hands...
da dum teeesh
Makes sense that the perp would be on his cellphone as detonation occurs, although no one knew if timer was used or not. Tracing cell traffic during detonation time, well.. The perp can’t hide from that. Idiotic to use a cellphone bomb. Stupid.
Bingo...we have the Muslim Brotherhood operating in all levels of government now. This should not surprise us.
The parts strewn on the street were from RC radios, not cell phone radios.
I do believe the arrest was made...all this other chatter is just that....media chaos is alive and well....
Yes, so far I do not find the grey hoodie, backwards white baseball cap combo.
The local police would not necessarily be the arresting agency. This is now a Federal matter with the FBI running the investigation. They might keep the BPD out of the loop.
Or could be they brought in a dark skinned muslin and DoJ said wrong skin color - go find somebody else. Seriously they may be just being more precise and the person is a person of interest or suspect but has not been foprmerly arrested or charged yet. All sorts of possibilities.
However if they are still looking for the guy why even divulge anything to the media?
They are either STUPID or MISINFORMING cause it ain’t no WHITE TEA PARTY PERSON WEARING A GADSDEN FLAG TEA-SHIRT!
I believe the arrest was made too. Why wait until a media frenzy. They’re searching his home now no doubt.
I think they have someone in custody too......
The Mayor is insisting there is an arrest.
Fox News just said that the FBI claims there have been no arrests.
The FBI says no arrest made.
More and more people are gathering at the court house and reporters are gathering there as well.
I can’t either. The media is USELESS. CNN says ‘dark skinned male’.. Not sure I even believe that at this point.
“”Remember how the media spread any and all rumors during Katrina?””
Ha... yeah... cops shooting unarmed citizens.
More like gangbangers shooting at rescue personel. But we didn’t hear anything about that, oh no, shhhh nooo. No looting rapists and teens shooting at responders, no. Only bad bad cops and Bush playing a guitar. The minorities were starving and the white cops were drowning them.
To this day you’ll still see someone ‘suffering’ still playing that katrina card as long as they can ride it out.
I’ll give media 5% correct this time.
Funny because Holder’s FBI insisting in form letter just read on Fox that no arrests or suspects in custody. Holder is playing games.Something stinks to high heaven!
I’m just telling you what everyone is saying here.
Media source reporting Mumbles?
That's purty. Kinda like Mayo Angeluni. (;>
