Posted on 04/15/2013 4:57:24 PM PDT by 2ndDivisionVet
The Saudi Arabian man who is reportedly in police custody following the Boston Marathon bombing was chased and tackled by bystanders shortly after the blast, according to CBS.
Senior correspondent John Miller, a former assistant director of the FBI, reported this:
There is an individual in custody he is not free to go.
He is a Saudi national who was near the scene of the blast. When the blast happened he began to run. Now, in context, a lot of people began to run. A civilian who thought he was acting suspiciously chased him down and tackled him and then turned him over to Boston police....

Like Hassan (Presidential friend and advisor since 2007)
the terrorists WILL be protected.
America, and the border, not so much.
20 year old.
If he's a muzzie, he's involved.
Very little of what we have heard so far is very accurate. It’s a mess of 3rd person reporting and mixed up witness accounts.
I hope they did catch a guy. But we’ll see.
They arrested him him for running from the site of an explosion??? Hell, New York City jails must have been crowded after 9/11 what with arresting all those folks running from the scene of explosions.
The police actually arrested this guy because he was running? Sounds like it, if they are not letting him leave.
We shall soon discover a YouTube video hurt some feelings in Saudi.
Good ol shep smith of fox news corralated this happening to the boston holiday celebrating the battle of lexington and concord and a possible domestic terrorist attack much like timothy mcvey. They cant wait to point the finger in this direction. reaching............reaching.............
Depends on whether everyone's got their stories straight. Media hasn't had time to write it up, check with the powers that be, and edit it appropriately yet.
If I were a betting man, I’d bet a “radical right wing’ extremist protesting tax day did this.
he was "running" at the biggest "running" event in America. You can't do that. /s
We need to issue fatwa against Saudi Arabia. Saudi Arabia is a dead country now. We need to finish the job.
Gayer than a Maypole.
I wouldn’t think someone would undertake an event such as this without at some point claiming credit.
Did he have a race number pinned to his chest? Maybe they arrested him because his number fell off. Or because he was wearing sneakers that were made by child labor in some third-world sweat shop.
You can’t tackle a Muslim because you think he set off 3 bombs. What were these people thinking? Muslims are protected here in the USA.
If he did have something to do with it, then let’s hang him.
I don’t recall anyone ever taking credit for 9/11.
This would be debunked had no so many witnesses been present. Give the tackler a medal. He risked his life big time, not knowing if the bomber would off himself with another bomb.
Not many people were running with severe, explosion-induced burns.
20 years from now there’ll probably be a shrine to the noble Muslim who started the Arab Spring in AmeriKKKa.
True. I wonder how far away a cell phone detonated bomber has to be from the bomb? This guy could be innocent, but we’ll wait and see.
You’re right, but don’t forget, we fingered them very quickly.
So, did Eric Holder’s DOJ charge the tackler with a hate crime?
Don’t forget the perp was also a charter tea party member,
hunting rifle owner, a man caused climate change denier, and
a home schooling, Bible- believing dad.
What’s amazing is watching people run TO the blast site. God bless them!
No mention of the Saudi suspect even though Mark Levin's station had it 10 minutes ago.
I’m sure the ACLU will file a lawsuit against the tackler at some point.
Brigham and women’s hospital is in lockdown with a swat team guarding all exits. There is a suspect who is a patient under guard
Yeah the whole Muslim world was cheering 9/11 and Bin Laden was very pleased, but no one “officially” took credit for it.
The nightly news will infer it as a right wing Tea Party extremist.
Ted Kraczynski (aka “The Unabomber”) was further left than Bill Ayers.
The article says this Muslim is in custody and is not free to go. Doesn’t the FBI know that this Muslim is part of a protected class? Doesn’t the FBI know they are taking this Muslims Civil Rights by not freeing him so he can go blow up some more bombs? Shame on the FBI!
If it was a cell phone detonator, presumably they could be miles away watching on TV or a block or two away. Maybe wanted to be close to see the carnage but misjudged. We’ll see.
There's some ex-KFI (LA news radio station) broadcasting out of Seattle who's interviewing a former city security/Secret Service background guy. He said exactly the opposite...that a tax-protester mad @ govt would make some govt entity a target. He thinks it's more likely "external" (his word for outside terrorist)
There's no "tax" symbolism at all in the Boston Marathon & killing 8 yo boys.
Correct, which is why the lefties never bring up Kraczynski.
Is that the resident at 1600 Penn?
And. pro-lifer too.
20 years from now therell probably be a shrine to the noble Muslim who started the Arab Spring in AmeriKKKa.
You were, perhaps, being facetious, but a chill just ran up my spine, nonetheless.
But why blow up innocents?
Why not attack the enemy?
Send him down to Gitmo and he'll get bottom-bunked real quick.
