Nice of them to cover his face with a big red arrowhead...
You don’t need facial recognition software. If someone really thinks they are “of interest”, you put their pictures on the local news in Boston and ask people to call if they know who these guys are. They’d get dozens of calls.
I have seen worse pictures of bank robbers who were caught because somenone recognized them from the pictures.
rockabyebaby ~ Exactly. Glad to see someone using some common sense here.
outpostinmass2 ~ Or they could be the bombers, if they are LEO then they can easily be cleared by the investigators. Or is that not common sense?
Or they could be both.
Most Excellent. ...your work?
Thanks for posting these photos.
If there is a picture of these two leaving without backpacks then yes they are suspects.
It's early, but there are lots of clues besides all the photo and video evidence.
This will get solved, maybe even within days.
not my work just found the site.
They're not wearing anything which can't be purchased anywhere online by anybody. Probably a better way to fit in, and have gear on without being questioned.
Less obtrusive than wearing a full beard, keffiyeh, and thawb.
You can almost hear the extra layers of tinfoil being applied across the Globe.
The two operators in 5.11 gear... There’s a story there. Just not sure it has anything to do with the bombs.
Him and his “life partner” both shop exclusively from the 5.11 catalog.
Exactly. I find these threads fascinating insight into how some FReepers think or not think. Lots of FBI “expert” conclusions after quickly viewing garden variety photos of a race.
RUSH: Bill Ayers didn't blow up the Boston Marathon, but somebody like him did. Somebody like him did, and that could mean that whoever did this could someday be celebrated in this country if things don't change. Whoever did it could end up being on the faculty at Columbia University.
In this day, there will be thousands of images and some video come in from all sources for review.
I am suspicious of the solo white guy with the red shirt and beard who is carrying his backpack.
If this really was a “lone wolf” he would be my TOP suspect.
I’d post the picture but never have figured out how to do that here.
That’s the one I’m going with
I absolutely expect hundreds of people to carry backpacks near the finish line of the world's most famous marathon that contain clothing, food, liquid refreshments, and personal items for friends and relatives who are running in the race. I also expect to see hundreds of other spectators carrying backpacks containing food, water, outerwear, etc., given the fact that many people who travel to central Boston for the marathon, Red Sox game, and other Patriot Day festivities are there for the day and travel by train or have to park a long distance away from the events. As for the guys who seemed focused away from the race, maybe they were ogling a pretty lady in a short skirt (or burka). Nevertheless, even the most benign clues are worth extra scrutiny.
Will be interested to see if a raid does occur this or any friday for a suspect as the notation on one of the pics said.. with an nra booklet and some firearms recovered....
yep ! that’s him !
has lone wolf bomber written all over him!
looks like he just crawled out of his basement to execute the attack.
I don’t understand the “remanant of explosive” picture; there is some kind of white tag on the backpack and on some other guy’s shirt-they are circled along with a white piece circled on the exploded backpack-—but they are 2 different guys.
One is cammo/LEO looking guy and the other is a guy wearing blue jeans- don’t get that link at all.
The creepiest looking guy to me is the one with the blue jacket, red shirt and sliver striped backpack. He looks odd to me for some reason-the way he is holding the packpack is different-but other than that, I got nothing-which is why I don’t do this for a living!
But only slightly.

You can't just snag a favorite picture from a desktop folder...it has to be hosted someplace on line to be posted here.
Best bet is to save the image to an image hosting service, I use Photobucket. In Firefox right click and select "Copy image location", in Safari right click and select "Open image in new tab" and copy the address in the address bar. Other browsers have similar tricks.

good grief I hope it’s not that guy... because they will paint him as a right wing tea party nut before you can say Jack Robinson.
Interesting. Locally, people want whoever did this caught and punished. I don’t hear anyone talking about politics.
LEO are ruled out as suspects?
I truly hate getting whacked on the head when one of these clueless backpack guys turns around on the subway. Ugg! What is it with these rude people? They enter a crowded place with a four foot appendage on their backs and then turn around willy-nilly clocking other straphangers as if they own the place.
I can't say I would mind it if Bloomburg banned backpacks in the subway.
By the formatting, that was posted on 4chan. Be weary of believing it, they are professional trolls.
Somebody posted that from work?
Not the sharpest light bulb in the display is he?
I don’t think Law Enforcement Officers would be carrying backpacks.
.... I agree ... which means there were professional witnesses present at the site of the incident and in close proximity to the event. Those back packs are probably their "War Bags" containing necessary equipment for a response. This leads me to believe that there is much more info known to them than the Feds are letting on.
...I don't know if anybody noticed the change in the climate of dialogue that took place when the local LEO's announced that the Feds have taken over the investigation and jurisdiction. When the local PD were in the limelite during the immediate time after the incident .... they were quite forthcoming with information as it surfaced. Fast forward to the Feds commandeering the crime scene .... immediately the dialogue transformed into the mantra that .... "Most of the information that was reported thus far was spurious and mostly inaccurate."
Did you happen to notice that this entire thread sources a 4chan forum?
I did. Blind squirrel and all that...
See 86, I doubt any business would let their network access 4chan. Also, they are professional trolls.
I knew that effin’ Waldo was up to no good!
I’d venture that a “security commission” would need/want 4chan access for the same reason they’d monitor Al Jazzera and CNN.
Anyway, you are correct, take that post with an industrial sized salt block.
Lighten up tootsie roll
This whole thing smells...
Obama is involved with this somehow, and it’s somehow tied to the gun legislation moving through congress.
They are going to pin this on the right and use this along with Sandy Hook as an excuse to crack down and disarm us.
This is Americas Reichstag Fire!
I think that is the guy. Just gut feeling.
However, there is a photo of someone going through a bag near the detonation site and someone looking over him. That guy has a big parka on and a stocking cap. Seems like it was too warm a day for that, since so many others are in tee-shirts. He has it buttoned all of the way up. Suspicious to me.
He used the Iranian time machine to plot an attack that occurs AFTER his own death. Agetha Christie herself couldn't have solved this mystery.
