#BREAKING: According to @WuWCVB, an arrest in #BostonMarathon bombing is imminent or has already taken place.
FWIW, NBC’s Pete Williams, citing US Attorney’s office in Boston, says no arrest made.
That would be my guess.
If they fingered him and have not arrested him, they just alerted him to flee or eat a shotgun barrel.
Have you found a site showing the video of the guy dropping the bag?
Can’t find any news reporting that someone was arrested???
You got anything...
55KRC Cincinnati (Radio) - Fox News is confirming a suspect is in custody - dropping a black pack pack..
Sounds like the video of him dropping the bag was at the second bomb site.
I wish FR’s jokers would take a vacation for a few hours.
Perp most likely white, Tea Partier, Bible thumping homophobic, conservative republican, patriot, libertarian heterosexual male.
It’s like cooking with a Ferrari.
Hiya SE Mom!!
Thanks for the ping!
Can’t miss spotting this thread.
We can’t keep our FReepathon thread atop Breaking News.
Amen. I'm finding it so disturbing I'm about ready to take a break from FR for the day.
FNC is saying that an arrest has been made.
NBC saying reports of an arrest may be premature.
I second that. This really isn’t a laughing matter.
How so quick? Facial recognition software.. or they got lucky.
> does this suggest that the perp is someone who was already
> on their radar for previous activities or affiliations?
Yeah, I’m guessing it had to be somebody who was already on a watch list.
I agree, jokes need to stop.
Thanks! Just got home from a quick errand. rush saying CNN saying it is a ‘dark skinned’ male. So much for the media’s ‘tea party’, ‘right wing’ meme. Glad they have caught him. hope they fry him.
fox/app/cnn arrest made cbs/nbc arrest not made
FNC says it has been confirmed.
Richard A. Jewell (December 17, 1962 August 29, 2007) was an American police officer who, while working as a security guard for Piedmont College, became known in connection with the Centennial Olympic Park bombing at the 1996 Summer Olympics in Atlanta, Georgia, United States.
Discovering a pipe bomb on the park grounds, Jewell alerted police and helped to evacuate the area before the bomb exploded, saving many people from injury or death. Initially hailed by the media as a hero, Jewell was later considered a suspect. Jewell’s case is considered an example of the damage that can be done by reporting based on unreliable or incomplete information.
No kidding... the same sophomoric humor repeated over and over gets real old.
Or a rush to find a culprit.
This place is so lame now. EVERY SINGLE NEWS THREAD IS NOTHING BUT STUPID ASS SARCASTIC COMMENTS, DUMB ASS “jokes” and/or JOKE PICS.
Saying the suspect will be in Federal Court in Boston....so, an American citizen?
The picture of the two guys in black jackets with khaki’s almost looks like LE or military, just judging from what looks like their boots?
The joke is on us. Waco, Ruby Ridge, Olympic Bombing, Anthrax attack, DC Beltway Snipers, OKC, Fast and Furious, Benghazi....
....the government has a very determined and lax attitude for mucking things up and LYING to the American people.
Reagan was talking about the Commies when he said, "Trust but verify".
Never did I think it would pertain to our own .gov and MSM domestic enemies.
Wasn’t he pink?
Thank you for asking a real question pertaining to the news article posted and trying to keep the discussion on the topic of the article.
Not necessarily with our current administration and it’s thinking on such matters.
Per Hot Air the feds are looking for others involved:
But seriously, if this does turn out to be a "domestic" terror incident, could we perhaps be looking at something like the DC sniper and his young cohort?
Both of whom I believe had some sympathies with Islamicists, although the MSM did its best to de-emphasize that aspect.
Any perp, regardless of citizenship, would be taken to a US court.
Reports of an arrest appear to just be a rumor. Remember how the media spread any and all rumors during Katrina?
Per Rush, Fran Townshed indicated it “may” be a domestic of some sort....did anyone else hear that?
NBC News must be pooping their pants cause the perp isnt a white tea party guy
I wish FRs jokers would take a vacation for a few hours.
Thank you! How about a vacation for a few weeks.
Per Drudge...suspect arrested.
Williams got it wrong with his sources before in the Lanza case. Rush as of 2 minutes ago said an arrest has been made.
Yeah, Im guessing it had to be somebody who was already on a watch list.
Exactly what I have been thinking and posting. 3 2 1 before RATS are on TV saying we had him on our radar but the evil Republican sequester cut LEO’s assets
My suspicion is that although they said "there are no suspect", they had a possible suspect (from witnesses and photo evidence submitted). I also have suspicion that the Lord and Taylor video evidence is compromising of said suspect (the missing piece in a puzzle that ties someone specifically to THE bag at the scene of the crime).
Better be able to make the case before going forward with "witnesses suspect it was this guy...".
If the arrested person was white, we would know it by now.
NO ARREST HAS BEEN MADE, people. AUTHORITIES ARE STILL SEARCHING FOR A SUSPECT.
Thanks for the link, sweet you.
Lamestream is its typical rush to be first again.
To Hades with facts and accuracy.
