It's Glenn Beck, so I will take it for what it's worth. Nothing.

But they are black/darker skinned! As is the guy beside them...and the women behind them...and more people around them...

Unbelievable. All media should refrain from ridiculous speculation.

from that gawker story:

http://www.nypost.com/p/news/local/bronx/bx_idiots_beat_up_arab_in_revenge_76qKozmZwDUpLUbacqqP3O

A Bangladeshi man out for dinner at a Bronx restaurant was viciously beaten hours after the Boston Marathon bombing by thugs who called him “a f--king Arab” before pummeling him to the ground, sources said.

I assume this is where the NY Post does most of its investigative reporting.

Um, is that Mr. Larsen from Happy Gilmore?


Showed somebody at work this and they though "it's that guy from Nirvana. Not Kurt, and not Dave Grohl. The other one."

Yeah, maybe....if this was 1993.

This is what Crist Novaselic looks like today.

That's what I mean. Mr. Novoselic hasn't had a full head of hair in quite some time.

Also, in that article, they mention a Facebook posting from the kid, that he was "bored at work." Watch him get fired for this article becoming public knowledge.

100% the media who pulls this information as legit.

I've learned that in today's world, there is absolutely nothing you can do to stop people from posting BS, or doing their own thing, whether legit or not. You just have to look past that stuff. But when credible news sources REPORT (not blog, or discuss opinion on radio shows), but REPORT stuff that is blatantly wrong, that is where you know something is wrong.

The NY Post just better step back from this story because they've struck out. 12 dead. arrests made. and while they never said those two guys were the bomber, saying they were going to be released as a person of interest to the public, they just need to stop.

They definitely look some sort of Middle Eastern, but I can't tell if it's the quality of the image.
