how do we know that these two guys don't just have a coke and sandwich in their back packs?

Perhaps there are subsequent photos of them without their backpacks. If so, that would indicate that they may in fact be the bombers. I guess time will tell.

How do we know that they are not being used to distract from others responsible for this crime?

I shared this link info on another DN comment but it has not gone through yet. I'll try again. Google ( Did “Anonymous” find the Boston Bombers? Photo’s Included ) click on the "original photo's" link On that site are photos and comments showing some others people that should be considered "Persons of interest", identifying features of their backpack resemble markings on the backpacks used in the explosions.

Aside from the possibility they will be patsies, if these are the guys, you can figure they have no fear of being caught. Walking by cameras with a white ball cap turned backward on a busy street that any average person would know is being filmed, shows you they are not very interested in hiding.

They're supspects. If they only had a coke and sandwich in their backpack just come on in and tell your story. Your innocent until proven guilty. I worry more about all the knucklehead vigilantes we have out there that shoot first and ask questions later. The fact the FBI released this reveals they need the public's help not their hysteria.

For once I agree with you HS Fan. We don't need any Jack Ruby types to add to the coming conspiracy theories that this story will undoubtedly provoke.

Glad to see all on this board remain civilized and are not jumping to conclusions about race and guilt. I remind myself of the Richard Jewell situation where a man who saved lives was subsequently blamed only because he fit the "profile" of what they were looking (not to mention the West Memphis Three). That said, the FBI is doing good work and I have to assume they are fairly confident in these two being involved through the surveillance video. Dropping a bag near the site, bomb going off shortly thereafter. All they need for smoking gun is pics with these guys walking around afterward without the bags.

A question for the chefs out there. Are those backpacks big enough to hold the pressure cookers mentioned? Also, how heavy would a pressure cooker be filled with all that stuff. The guy in the white cap seems to be fairly easily carrying his pack without a lot of effort. But I don't have the slightest idea how big or heavy that type of bomb would be.

If it isn't them, then they should come forward and explain so the investigation can move on. They have already seen their pictures all over the news and they have yet to come forward....

One of the injured victims saw one of those two place the bag on the ground just minutes before it exploded. The FBI posted those photos after getting one of the best witnesses confirming them as suspects.


The FBI has no evidence that those Men are guilty, therefore, the Policemen are guilty of Battery. We may not agree, but it is the law. Consider the following:

“Res Judicata”:

"An illegal arrest is an assault and battery. The person so attempted to be restrained of his
liberty has the same right to use force in defending himself as he would in repelling any
other assault and battery." (State v. Robinson, 145 ME. 77, 72 ATL. 260).

"Each person has the right to resist an unlawful arrest. In such a case, the person
attempting the arrest stands in the position of a wrongdoer and may be resisted by the use
of force, as in self- defense." (State v. Mobley, 240 N.C. 476, 83 S.E. 2d 100).

Even if the suspect did commit the crime, where was the warrant for his arrest? We should demand that our law enforcement officers act within the confines of the law, or else, no rights will be secure.

Turn on the news.

"The FBI has no evidence that those Men are guilty, therefore, the Policemen are guilty of Battery."

You're kidding, right Mugabee? First of all, what do you know about what evidence the FBI has or doesn't have? Second of all they have every right in the world to seek these people out for questioning even if arrest warrants have not been issued. And the cops very much can detain them based on their actions.

But the actions of the two suspects made all this moot. When you kill a cop, hijack a vehicle and kidnap somebody, and then shoot at and throw bombs at cops, well, yes, they can arrest you. Even without a warrant. You don't really think cops get arrest warrants every time they put someone in custody do you?
