Boston: A Photographic Retrospective

Tyler Durden's picture





 

It has been a tumultuous and terrible week with every emotion being played out in public, real-time across every social media source. This is an attempt at visually preserving and memorializing this week's events.

Everything was going as planned for one of the most prestigious marathons in the world

 

The elite athletes had completed their race

 

The rest of the pack (still incredible athletes to qualify for Boston) continued their trudge through the 26.2 miles

 

And then at around 4 hours in, this

 

and then this

 

 

Chaos and devastation

 

Heroes emerged

 

First responders with uniforms

 

... and without

 

The suspects were first unknown but identified in a few days

 

 

Then the manhunt began

 

Following a shoot out on MIT Campus

 

Which left one police officer dead

 

As well as one of the suspects

 

Quickly Boston was put into lockdown mode

 

A city on the verge of martial law

 

As the manhunt began

 

As the suspects were identified, family members came forward

 

Neighborhoods were evacuated

 

... and searched for bombs

 

As bewildered residents looked on

 

Even the journalists were told to provide "ground coverage"

 

Then as night was about to fall and the suspect remained uncovered, shots were heard

 

And the showdown siege began

 

The second suspect was discovered - in a boat

 

SWAT teams swooped in

 

And Suspect 2 was captured

 

Law enforcement celebrated

 

As did the people

 

'Friends' were rounded up

 

And all was well: a perfect ending.

... or just the beginning?

The guy in the cowboy hat next to the guy that had his legs amputated is this guy.  The interview he gave was emotional.

 

Carlos Arredondo is “the man in the cowboy hat” from the now-famous photo taken after the explosions at the Boston Marathon on Monday.

Arredondo was at the Boston Marathon to support “Tough Ruckers” – military members who run in full military gear to honor fallen comrades.

His son, Alex, died in Iraq in 2004. When marines came to deliver that news to Arredondo, he locked himself in his van and set it on fire. Those marines rescued him.

Arredondo would also lose his only other son, Brian, who never got over the loss of his brother and committed suicide at the age of 24.

Arredondo could not save his sons’ lives, but on Monday he saved someone else’s.

The gravely injured man in the photo is 27-year-old Jeff Bauman. He had to have both lower legs amputated, but his father says he’s recovering.

What really surprises me is that with the MASSIVE mobilization involving both local police and Feds, they didn't harm or kill anyone they didn't suspect with being involved with the bombings, and even then presumably only fired after being fired upon (of course luck may have been involved because at least one person had a hole in his house, but unknown where it came from).

Which means, either they are super-professional, or the LAPD and NYPD seriously need to go back to the 'Police Academy' for some serious remedial training.

It is amazing. The Pacific ocean is basically dieing off right now from unrelenting nuclear contamination. The amount of cancers, birth defects, and general fucked up shit that will be occuring over the next decade will be unheralded in the history of our failed species on this planet.

Fuck Einstein! and Fuck Oppenheimer! Those fucking cunts fucked this planet up way more than any of these rag tag kids from some central asian backwater.

Here's the thing, Einstein is supposedly "super intelligent." Well guess what? If you invent something that leads to your own species extinction? You're a fucking a failed mutation. Clever? Sure. Wisdom & intelligence? Negative.

Time to re-write the history books. Einstein (and that little devil man Oppenheimer) were failures. Humanoids. They look and act like humans, but fail the test.

You want to know who was a hero? Who was a real human? Linus Pauling.

Linus Pauling was asked to participate in the Manhanttan project, but he turned it down. He saw the writing on the wall and said "no thanks." (He also won two nobel prizes back when they meant something.)

Japan.  The effects to U.S. will take longer.

My best friend in the world lives in Yokohama and will not leave.  That issue aside, she provides interesting information:  She grows lots of flowers, has several cats and many fish in a few different freshwater aquariums.  Of these different biomasses only some of the smallest fish are affected with a small deviation to the spine. She does see a higher death rate in the tanks than she did before Fukushima.  None of her cats have been affected.

We would take her in, complete with cats, in a minute but she insists that leaving is not an option.  She spends every moment she can trying to raise money and help for those stuck in the worst areas, especially the children.

I went to Tiki Port, drank and ate $80, then later, after Chatham and Welfleet, hit the fatigue/booze wall at The Old Colony Tap, PTown. I couldn't understand the Irish tourists ..
..But the best? No cops. Nada. Not a cruiser. Like the old days.

Good News:

North Korea denied that it has any links to the Boston Marathon bombing, saying it“maintains a stance against any form of terrorism,” as quoted by the KCNA. The statement also said North Korea will not hide behind terrorism if it ever feels the need to strike the US, dismissing the allegations posted on the American news website WND that the country might be behind the bombing as an attempt by “hostile forces” to damage its reputation.

Truly insane.  Even if everything we've been told is 100% true there is absolutely no excuse for the manner in which it was handled and I agree -- if it was this easy to cow the public into hiding at home while the entire police force shut down the city because of one 19 year old with a pressure cooker.....

I thought the same thing.  What if you're some guy with a bong in your apartment -- do you let them in and get arrested for drugs, or refuse their entry and get Gitmo'd for aiding and abetting an enemy combatant.  Those are the kinds of choices people have to make when they live in a police state.

As an American, this week was fucking embarrassing. At least with 9-11 we made an attempt at the stiff upper lip thing. This time people shat their pants, cried for Uncle Sam to militarize the police, and turned an entire city into a gigantic prison. All the while, this was probably 1/1000th the scale of 9-11. I'll never forget the guy begging for a cavity search. Utterly pathetic.

We really jumped the fucking shark as a country this week, people.

Quite a controversy surrounding the photo.  Taken in the hospital.  Hospital denies having done it.  Odds are it was a policeman who wanted to share it with his/her comrades.  Kind of like Saddam's execution was supposed to be kept out of the public view.

Not meaning to malign the police here.  Just my guess.

BTW:  I weigh in with Karl Denninger who is quick to point out that Boston has some of the toughest anti-gun laws, and wonders what would have happened if every third citizen had one.  Would we have needed 10K cops and spent....$10 million by the time the dust settles?

$10 million by the time the dust settles?

It cost $360 million to keep Boston closed for a day.  So $10 million is peanuts.

The final cost of this episode will easily exceed $500 million but, luckily, Ben is printing $3000 million a day.

Increased future spending on DHS will be at least $10 billion a year more from the current $60 billion.  There will also be losses of personal liberties and increased surveillance of all.

The final cost of this episode including future costs will exceed $100 billion.

GeeZee PeeZee.  I thought that you were blowing smoke when it came to the DHS budget.  They spent some $43 billion in 2010.  We are sooooo screwed.  Ossama bin Laden succeeded beyond his wildest dreams.  If I recall, the World Trade Towers cost $1 billion each back in the early '70s.  What did "W" say..."the terrorists envy us for our freedom."  What freedoms would those be,"W"?  The freedom to terrorize ourselves with all of these cops, drones and trillion dollar deficits?  Real race to the bottom in Prez stature between Johnson, Nixon and "W."  Obama will be in the running.

Now guess what?  The budget for Commodities Future Trading Commission?

I am going to make you wait.  Lets first consider CFTC's responsibilities. How about the $1.6 billion it let Jon Corzine steal.  How about the $1 quadrillion in derivatives it oversees.  What is reasonable overhead on that quadrillion.  Maybe 1/1,000 of a buck?  So maybe its budget should be $1 trillion.  Too liberal an assumption?  OK.  Let's get conservative and slide the decimal over three slots.  CFTC should get at least $1 billion, right?

Wrong.

CFTC gets about $200 million.

Why are we sooooo screwed?  Meaningless expenses for the military cronies under DHS.  No expense to keep the financial terrorists in check.  Want to save America?  Give CFTC the bigger budget.  Duh.

If you really want your mind blown, consider the possibility that there is no spoon (bin Laden).  Or more accurately, that the spoon had nothing to do with 9/11 and that almost all of the hijackers were from Saudi Arabia.

I can't go the conspiracy route with 9/11.  Buttttttt.  Being an engineer and seeing the footage of WTC 7 collapsing - at free fall speed - I have to think that that building was professionally demolished with appripriately placed and timed explosives.

If nothing else, not is one thorny unanswered question.

There is a large group of engineers and architects who openly call for an investigation of that.

I think very highly of former Ass Treasury Secretary Paul Craig Roberts.  He is steadfast in his conviction that the Fed is up to all sorts of horrors including last week's smackdown.  OTOH, he is fervent 9/11 conspiracy proponent.  IOW, he thinks the US government orchestraed the whole thing.  As I said, I can't go there, but the Building 7 evidence gives me a very serious case of cognitive dissonance.  I hope Dr. Robert's hasn't lost it.  He is a great advocate for putting the bankster's cajones in a vice.
