It looks like we may have been pointing towards a person providing security (National Guard Maybe?). /u/zachbarnett posted http://i.imgur.com/3bdmmZh.jpg which seems to show our man standing in the middle of the post blast scene conversing with other first responders. That COULD explain the attire. Large black bag, similar to Blackhawk! pack issued by the national guard.

Looks like he has army fatigues on as well as brown GI boots.

CNN is stating they have an ID on the guy who did it.

http://www.cnn.com/2013/04/17/us/boston ... index.html

Sounds Middle Eastern to me...shocker.

Code: Select all
CNN: BREAKING NEWS: Investigators believe they have identified a suspect in the Boston Marathon bombings, a source who has been briefed on the investigation told CNN's John King


That sounds extremely speculative.

From what I've seen and heard, it is a dark skinned person that looks Middle Eastern. I guess it could be a Mexican. :thumbdown:

I wonder if someone is just reporting it's a middle eastern person on the hopes that if/when they find the guy and he's middle eastern they can say, "HA! TOLD YOU SO! WE REPORTED IT FIRST!"

An official briefed on the Boston Marathon bombing investigation said today that authorities have an image of a suspect carrying, and perhaps dropping, a black bag at the second bombing scene on Boylston Street, outside of the Forum restaurant.

CNN...maybe they backed off it. However, that's what I heard from them.

Hard to tell from the angles, but the surroundings in the image posted by 4chan/reddit looks consistent with those around Forum.

If they really have made an arrest, I'd feed the person pop rocks and Coke and show him what it feels like.

There are better things that they could do. Some cultures believe eye for an eye...how about a leg for a leg?

On reddit, are the images of the guy in shredded black clothing running away? I saw that video on Boston.com earlier today.
