Boston Marathon Bombing...

Very odd to me that some Al Qaeda group hasn't claimed 'credit' for it...
Obvious hot topic of conversation, and most of us in my Geezer Golf Group were curious about the lack of 'claim', and we sort of all hope it would be some 'offshore terrorist' group, as opposed to a US gang of wackos.

The investigators probably know more than they are supplying to the media, but oddly 'quiet' in terms of someone/some group taking 'credit' for that sad and savage act.

Seemed more appropriate for the PolySci forum vs the Lounge.

The pics I saw were pretty fookin ugly. Very sad to see innocents getting blown up. Very different times these days vs the Pollyanna decades of my youth...

From my reading over the last few days, I gather that homemade bombs are not uncommon (172 found in the US in recent times, by one count). Last ones that did significant damage were set by an anti-abortion activist. He said he wanted to make people feel insecure, which is pretty much the definition of terrorism.

By lethal injection with a sterile needle.

We need to send a message to all the idiots who perpetrate these acts by killing him with a series of schrapnel laced pressure cooked explosions.

There's too much to the story that we don't know about and there's even more that we will never know. In the United States I always thought it was innocent until proven guilty, and not the decision of the media to convict a "criminal". Not implying that he did not commit the crime, but an open-closed wham bam case can leave out the important details... Like why we were warned about them and yet this still happened. With all the liberties that we have overlooked and allowed to be walked on by people like the NSA, how were they able to carry out such a horrific crime?

Question everything.

I never thought my first post on this forum would be on the politics form when I was looking for exhaust for my e53.

If he were innocent, he would have come foward to be questioned by authorities. Not been caught on camera planting bomb backpack, hiding out, called friends to go clean his place of bomb materals and gotten into a bloody shootout with SWAT!

If it looks, walks and quacks like a duck, 99.9% of the time, it's a duck.

digees, i understand your stand...

and with that stand, there are two conflicting "entities" inside of me - one entity is totally agreeing with you, we can't do the lynch mob, with pitchforks and torches, and kill somebody, who we think is guilty... with such a mentality, we will fall into anarchy... we need to commit to due process... in order to stay civilized and open society...

the other "entity" inside of me wants to tear him a new a$$hole... with all the other pitchfork and torch accessories...

Hmm... seems more like a government op. The bomb squad ran a drill that day, and didn't smell a thing...

Then there's that pic of the woman in the white blouse with the gold-framed picture on the wall behind her who's supposed to be a witness. The same pic was used for the school official who 'died' in Sandy Hook. The same photo.

A bit odd... then there's the 'crying girl' who is always at these events. There's always a photo of her on her cell phone crying. She gets around.

Make me feel even worse for the people who did get hurt/killed.

Media outlets that don't want to pay photogs for actual photos are attaching stock images (free) to their coverage.
