Update: Boston Bombing Suspect HAS NOT BEEN Arrested; Boston Courthouse Evacuated

Tyler Durden's picture

First we got headlines coming out, from CNN and WCVB TV in Boston, that a suspect is now in custody:

  • Law enforcement official: Boston Marathon bomb suspect in custody, expected in federal court.
  • Janet Wu reports it is a man who was arrested.
  • The officials says the suspect is to be taken into custody by federal marshals and taken to a courthouse. 
  • There is no immediate word on where the arrest was made.   
  • Suspects at Federal Court are brought into an entrance away from public view.
  • Jack Harper says the security at the Federal Courthouse is almost unprecedented.
  • A source tells Newscenter5's WuWCVB that one male suspect delivered both bombs.

AP confirmed:



Then this became a media pissing match with both NBC and Reuters denying reports from CNN, AP and WCVB (on the ground), that no arrest has been made.

* * *

And now CNN is denying its original report that a suspect has been arrested. At least no report yet of the Boston Federal Court being under 9 feet of water.

Finally, here comes the FBI:


And the Boston Police itself chimes in:

Well - "New Normal" media.

Latest: Boston courthouse now being evacuated due to a Code Red, as well as Brigham Hospital:


Here is live coverage from the Boston Federal Court via WCVB Boston:

that was fucking fast, got an ID and arrested him in less the 5 min. Next they will kill him, fly him to a aircraftcarrier and dumb his body in the water with no proof and say its all fixed

This incident has has highlighted some serious shortcomings of our national security policy. We need to seriously review what went wrong here and rethink our anti-terrorism policy. One area that needs to be developed is our ability to track and identify all people on American soil. This data is freely accessible from mobile phones and the identities of the users can simply be stored with the associated mobile phone number in a government database. What's so complicated about that? Whay aren't we doing this? This is the kind of slack government that drives me crazy.

Did the suspect's passport miraculously survived the bombings?

Hmmm, good idea, MDB!   

I will use my Dell computer running Microsoft to use Google to search Oracle databases so I can research your concept. Maybe I should try a Bloomberg terminal?

Well thank God we have a man named 'HOLDER' on the job to bring the man to justice...

Nothing complicated, and quite profitable.

During the 1970s, after a brief stint at Amdahl Corporation, Ellison worked for Ampex Corporation. One of his projects was a database for the CIA, which he named "Oracle".

They were trying to flush a suspect.

Didn't work.

He just sat in front of his computer and got another cup of coffee.

SEE???  Surveillance cameras are GOOD!  

Now let's put one on every corner of our streets and then every room in your house so we can keep you safe. Love, Your Gov't.

Whoever they arrest - the story will be spun and be used to hoodwink and fuck over the good people of this world.


The End.

Why should they arrest anyone? Have they run out of drones?

Drones save lives.  -don't you know what this is all about?

Great excuse to increase surveilence of "potential" domestic terrorists.  Time to outlaw gunpowder!  We should dobule tax each bullets which uses gunpowder.  However, pressure cookers are still okay for general consumption.

On a related note:

What will it take for “Christians” to recognize what Israel really is? The destruction of America?

Know that Israel is base to the satanic cabal from which to foment conflict, sabotage and religious prejudice. The ultimate agenda is world control in a communistic dystopia. Unfortunately, many indoctrinated Christians unknowingly contribute to the evil through their own ignorance.

In the interest of "intellectual honesty", has anyone else spotted the irony that "Christianity" started off as a Jewish sect?  LMAO.

Hate to brake it to you, but... it's like arguing over the superiority of Bullshit 2.0 over Bullshit 1.0  It's ALL bullshit.  Have a beer.

appears to be much ado about nothing

just another chance for blabbering TV idiots

Sounds to me like they're basically polling the entire thing to see how each possible race/religion/connections will play before they commit to the perfect suspect.

And then promptly Breitbart his ass.

This is a case where they can't just grab a convenient idiot at a traffic stop and tell us WE HAVE HIM!

Whoever did this is almost certainly going to do it again. And again. And again until they catch his psychopathic ass.

The usual technique of catching the first dark skinned guy they can find with a jail record ain't gonna cut it. While he rots in jail and the pressure cookers keep exploding, serious questions would be asked by even the most hopeless idiots.

This time, the brownshirts are going to actually have to find the real guy or it's going to happen again and again. Could be tougher to crack than UNAbomber too because this ass isn't talking about it to anybody.

This probably isn't a political statement. This is a statement that too many nuts are loose on the streets.

Well well well....
Where's he from?
White Tea Party guy, mid  to late 50's, gun nut, Ron Paul supporter, militia sympathizer (had a cookie on the library free computer he used several years ago even if he'd not been to said library at time of cookie entry) low tax, racist *because he signed a petition against Obama's GMO policy when he was shopping at Whole Foods) drives a gas guzzling import, cools his home to 60 degrees during the heat and humidity of Florida summers, reads ZH...

..and he's got a really deep dark tan

The media are exceptional at muddying the waters.

When do they announce that the police are pursuing a second suspect into the woods, like they did in Newtown? God I hate that I've become this paranoid.

JohnnyBriefcase's picture

It's not your fault man. They drove you to this level of paranoia.

TuesdayBen's picture

It is your fault, because you voluntarily consume their product, which you know to be tainted and unhealthy.

+1 for knowing that 'media' is the plural form of 'medium'.

It is one thing to be agenda driven....however when you integrate that with total incompetance you are really in trouble.  We can't trust these imbiciles in either capacity.

They can't even pass an assault weapons ban. How do you think they will take all guns away? The NRA is king here.

It was an assault pressure cooker, with a large capacity volume.  Do you realize you can buy these without a license at cooking shows?
