If they have video of Boston bomb suspect, why not show the video?
4/17/2013 | dragnet2

Posted on 04/17/2013 2:54:43 PM PDT by dragnet2

Last reports indicated video of a suspect planting a device was obtained, but there is no ID on the suspect.

If they have no ID on the suspect, would not showing the video to the public possibly reveal who the suspect is? Would friends, family, acquaintances, co-workers or possibly his neighbors be able to ID the suspect?

It's already been announced world wide the video was obtained at one of the bomb sites in front of a retail shop. So it would not seem likely the investigation would be compromised, since the suspect himself would already know they had video of the devise being planted at the bomb site.

If the video was aired, wouldn't it be possible someone out there would be able to identify the suspect?

How could the investigation be compromised at this point, if airing the video could possibly help or assist in identifying the suspect/suspects before they could possible plant more devices?

Been looking for this video myself. Figured it was just the usual poor reporting by the MSM. Talk about the video but never show the video.

Because Chris “Tingles” Matthews would have to apologize . . . And the sock-puppet Obambi’s handlers would have to explain a lot.

How do you spell M U Z Z I E ?

To be real honest, I find this dog and pony show regarding this video to be extremely suspect.

The suspect was wearing a hoodie and carrying Skittles.

We’re not supposed to talk about it.

Because public speculation concerning the appearance of the suspect suits the media’s purpose right now.

Because this isn't the Times Square bomber case and the suspect isn't white.

Even with Nanny Bloomberg's suspicion that the TSq bomber had to be someone angry over Obamacare, authorities managed to catch the REAL culprit at the airport before he was able to leave the country.

The leftwingtards in Boston imagine that revealing the video will cause people to rise up and exterminate everybody who looks that way.

They tried the same trick down in the DC area when Jon Mohamad and his little buddy were tooling around town killing people.

If they'd told folks what IDs were already known, they'd been caught several deaths earlier.

For example, there's a Michaels in Springfield. It's across I95 from what had been a grassy strip next to the highway on the otherside.

People saw two black men with an old ratty car with the rear trunk lid lock knocked out PARKED RIGHT THERE ~

We're getting the same deal here. These guys are going to plant more bombs and hurt and kill more people but Boston authorities will feel proud of having 'protected a brother'.

They don’t want us to see that it’s a middle eastern moslem terrorist or two, THATs why.
They are managing this fpr the politics.

It was recorded and photographed from a thousand angles.
They probably have actual photos of his setting the bomb down. They would love him to vanish back into Saudi Arabia, and then let is mysteriously morph into a homegrown, TEA, tax day, NRA member. (without of of course, ever needing to make an actual arrest)

It will go unsolved like the Unabomber. (while they know exactly who did it)

In fact, CNN just stated the suspect was seen in the video, buy they have no ID on the suspect.

Why would they be holding the video back from the public, who could possibly ID this person for authorities?

Very suspicious in light of calls for the public to come forward with information "this is someone YOU know" and all that.

Show the face of the man (or woman) who dropped that bag.

They went from, “We have a suspect ID” to “We dont have anything important to report today” then this supposed bomb scare happens at the Boston courthouse..Im telling you something stinks here..that story that someone posted from “Anonymous” which states a conspiracy will happen, that a person will be arrested on Friday and he will have NRA books found in his house..that this is all a conspiracy to take the focus away from the real terrorist, who is a Muslim..at first I thought that idea is nutty, its starting to smell like that now

They certainly were not expecting to lose the Gun Registration vote in the Senate. Even though Lindsey Graham said he was prepared to deliver one of his stellar debate performances. So no surprise that they would use this bombing after the fact to resurrect their tyrannical government policies.

I was going to respond to No. 1...But I saw your reasoning and believe you are absolutely right.

LE: Post the damn picture...this holding back cr** that LE pulls is not always the best path.

Maybe he/they bumped into someone or gave a smart alec remark...like Atta in the parking lot...Maybe there were two and they split up...

You'd better believe the only reason the person in the video isn't being shown ad nausea,, is for the same reason when there is a heinous act perpetrated in your city and mine, the news media never give the real description of a person that committed the crime.

In my city, they might say, "anyone with information on....should call 1800"..,,, or "the suspect is a male between the ages of 18 and 25, 6 ft 250 lbs. Anyone recognizing the suspect......."

No description of race or skin color, if the perp is black.

Occasionally, there might be, "a male between 18-20 yrs., 5 ft 6 in, 130 lbs... brown eyes, brown eyes " usually, referring to Hispanic male.

I'm finding it more common these days for the networks/radio/newspapers to report that there is a search for an individual (usually male) in connection with a crime (rape, murder, assault, robbery). The press will be quite clear as to the type of car he was driving, what he was wearing, etc, but for race and physical characteristics, you need to click the link to the artist's drawing of the suspect or the security camera photos.

There was a thread earlier today around 2:00 eastern that showed a picture of someone with a white shirt or rag tied around their face. This person was obviously being placed in a police car of some sort. The thread said something about “Suspect arrested. PHOTO”. It was subsequently pulled when the report came that there was no arrest. Any idea what that picture and thread was about? Did you see it?

Shades of Charles Bishra/Bishrop. The Tampa teen terrorist who flew a stolen plane into a bank building in November 2001. We were told he was a “young conservative”, etc and that it was not terrorism. Except the suicide note in his pocket DID call it terrorism (scratched out by someone but you can see the word in the photo on the smoking gun website). He also pledged his support to Bin Laden in the letter. It was suppressed until after the Super Bowl (his letter contained a threat against that event). We were told it was pimple cream what made him mad. Authorities had the answer at the scene of the crime and suppressed it. Just because we are told that something “is not terrorism” doesn’t rule it out.

The rumor from an anonymous whistle blower is that they will announce the suspect is caught on Friday. He will be a NRA supporter and will have used gunpowder in the bombs. That will allow the tyrants to ban ammo and gunpowder. That is the rumor.

Bret Baer on FNC, has just finished saying, "most people believe the bomber is 'home grown,' with only 20% believing him to be foreign, 19% don't know!"

I guess, the MSM has pounded the "disaffected male, acting alone but belonging to conservative groups and a gun collector."

Jacket on over hoodie. Hood draped over shoulder and not on head. Hat on head. You CAN wedge a hat tightly over a hoodie in up position. That would yield maximum incognito.

Well wait a minute here Mr. muir, they announced to the world about 5 hours ago, they had video of the suspect planting the bomb at the bomb site, but they had no ID of the suspect yet.

Could you explain how airing the video in the hopes of identifying the suspect could compromise their investigation?

Setting multiple bombs off that brutally maim and kill almost 200 innocent people is terrorism by definition, wheather it fits the agenda of our Politically Correct Overlords or not.

One thing is certain - they won't be able to lie and distort this into another case of "Workplace Violence".

Would the suspect not know this?

Today is a day to demogog gun control.

You’ll see the video of the bomber when the marxists establish a narrative they feel is constructive and when they figure out how to trot the victims out as window dress.

I think they already have fine photos of the islamic terrorists carrying and planting the bombs. BUt busting THAT terror cell the day before a big senate gun control vote would ruin Obama’s plan. Cracking down on US gun owners the day AFTER another moslem attack would be “bad optics”.
