Lots and lots of money from the lawsuits they're deliberately trying to draw, which they will always win because of the First Amendment. They're con artists, this is what they do for a living.

... now I'm not surprised as to why the American economy's in the shitter. First, it was someone trying to sue the Sandy Hook incident school for big cash; now this? Not surprised at all.

United States will still be viewed the same; as an egotistical imperialist country who stops at no limits to get what it wants. I can assure you this wont change in 40 or 100 years.

But I don't think we're even talking about the same thing.

Actually, this is a small portion of it, views won't change even if it's ignorant.

Disregard any other photos...

Here they are

Are they White or Arabic? Those pictures are bad quality and bad contrast. The news is acting like these are good quality pics, these are pretty sloppy quality pics and can be of anyone or even any ethnicity except black of course because they're clearly not that dark.

The backwards white cap guy looks like he is white, but I can't tell what the other guy is.

Anyone else thinks the man on the roof in the photo of the second explosion look kind of similar to either of these two? Same baseball cap....maybe same black jacket...it could be a coincidence, but it's at least worth looking into.

They aren't. The guy on the roof has on jeans and the bombs were planted only minutes before they went off.

With all due respect, is there any reason you know that for a fact? I mean, sure it's likely...but it says on the fox news article, they dropped off a backpack right? They would want time to get away from the explosion, and what better place is a roof?

The roof would make them stand out too much. Also, they couldn't leave them there for too long or they risked having them exposed.
It's logical. Plus, there are two of them and why would he take off his jacket and change pants and then try to gain access to a roof on a building and possibly reveal himself?

They're either white or maghreb, and frankly, I don't think it changes anything.

Pretty sure right winged moronic United-Statians did this.

If you want to keep more up to date on this, go to /pol/ on 4chan. Theyve worked stuff out before it has been mentioned by the fbi.

I'm an independent voter but lean more conservative, so I take offense to that comment. Also, I do happen to agree that it's starting to look like it might have been done by a pro-gun couple of kids that wanted to prove Bombs are just as deadly. But if that is the case, you left wingers helped contribute to that since you kept complaining about guns constantly. Not saying what they did was right, because it's clearly wrong but President Obama and his followers helped contribute to people losing their minds if it was indeed someone going insane because left wingers never shut up about guns. Maybe the lefties can use their welfare checks to move to another country that have next to no guns if guns bother them that much.

But it's simply not right. There are many countries in America, not just United-States of America.

Sarcasm doesn't exist when it comes to FOX news people.

Or Twitter.

The MIT officer that was shot has died. I heard it was a robbery and he ran off there, but who knows. The one bomber was walking off towards MIT in the one photo. So maybe he's hanging out around there if he's still in the area.

Never in my life have I heard the term "United-Statians" even from South American/Central American people.

Americans obviously means from United States especially if you put "right wing" in front of it.

I think the police may have gotten them! Grenades and shit were being thrown and assault rifles going off! I hope it was them and not 2 random other people who were planning something.

According to CNN, there are two MIT shooting suspects in custody now.

Undetonated explosives found in Watertown....

I don't think the MIT shooting and this warzone bullshit is related.

Yeah no one is sure. CNN is now saying one suspect was taken into custody from Watertown, and one from MIT.

CNN is constantly switching between Watertown and MIT.

The Waterton situation and the MIT shooting are unrelated. It's starting to seem like the two guys involved in the this Waterton craziness are the marathon bombers, but authorities haven't come out and confirmed or denied these suspicions.

From what I heard with my own ears and what I'm seeing around social media, they are. Suspects have been identified as Mike Mulugeta and Sunil Tripathi.

Wait, is this Waterton shooting thing related to the Boston Marathon detonation?

Is there a shootout, or a manhunt?

Suspect 1 in the bombing is apparently dead. He was struck and killed in the chase and shootout. Good riddance.

Suspect 2 (in the white cap) is now the focus of a man-hunt.
