I'm kind of interested to know how "he" triggered the bombs. Personally, I have been leaning towards the lone-wolf/ anti-government revolutionary type, rather than a middle eastern organization.


I'm sure they won't release too many details, in hopes to catch the suspect talking about details not known to the public.

Apparently the toll stands at 176 injured and 3 dead. Among the dead was a 3 year old kid.

The bomb itself had metal studs or bearings in it used for shrapnel.




Thought it was an 8 year old kid?<span ="Apple-tab-span" style="white-space:pre">     </span>


Yep, 8. apparently Roflmao needs new contact lenses.


Woops, maybe I'll try a different website. I guess ABC sucks.

So still 3 dead but 183 wounded.

You'd think that but....

One was made out of a pressure cooker packed with explosives (again, prelim is saying black powder or similar) ball bearings, BBs, and nails. Was stuffed in a black duffel bag and then shoved into a trashcan. Circuit board pieces have been recovered and the authorities believe it was a simple timed detonation. The second one is too far gone to tell at the moment whether it was also a pressure cooker. They're sending everything to the FBI crime lab in VA for analysis.

It's sounding more and more like anarchist's cookbook type stuff.

Hopefully they find a lightly burned passport near the crime scene.

I hope it isn't a "lone wolf kook" like McVeigh.

Wait, maybe the FBI has released false information... In hopes that the suspect will start spouting off OJ style "If I did it blah blah blah"?

If the details that the FBI released are considered factual, that sounds like some pretty terrible police work to give that to the media. During an ongoing investigation.

I take back my previous statement, why have only so many FBI and ATF agents working on this. When you can have the whole internet helping out.

Posts online where circling people as suspects because that had a still picture, where everyone around them was looking at the race while a certain individual wasn't.  Really?  I've been to multiple sporting events and you never just stare at the game/even the entire time.

Those guys with matching clothes and gear could be part of a security team or something.

I'm not saying this could not be useful, I just wouldn't put much trust in it. If it DOES work it'll be very interesting as a possible new tool in looking for information.

There is some debate between Secret Service/ CIA, but it is almost certain they are military/ security of some sort. Look at the khakis and the boots. Some the SEALS

Regardless, they are standing beside the police van in the aftermath photos still wearing their bags/ using their earpieces.

Some of the theories running around in the comment section there are pretty creepy.
 


However, I'd feel way more sketched out if I could dress up almost exactly like that in 5 minutes and walk out the door.

Why wouldn't there be private security at such a large event? What surprises me is the 5.11 mall ninja look. Tan pants and boots in a urban environment?

That's what says "wacko white kids" to me. Though at least over of them looked pretty built in one of them

The two seem to stay together the whole time, yet in one of the photos both of them seem to be receiving communications. Either they enjoy role playing way to much, or they are working with a larger group.

And the picture with the one guy in the street after the explosion, seems interesting. Because to me, any mall ninja would high tail it out of there and not stick around.

Pretty strange all the way around.
