What’s interesting, but not shocking, is that there are two, and not one, suspects. That indicates they were working as a team, that there was planning, and that there was some kind of escape route.
It should also be noted that these men are not dark-skinned as their seemed to be a rush to prove they were. They are white in appearance.
I think Alex Jones of Infowars was concerned that there was an effort to blame the right wing. But there’s not that – and Jones has done a lot of damage in helping to push the images of two Americans because he thought they were Saudi’s – that was the only reason.
It’s important to remember that they are, at this point, just suspects, but the FBI claims to have more video – what it exactly shows, only the FBI knows. On Reddit, a commenter said the photo “puts the suspect running down Fairfield street from Boylston Street running away from the second explosion scene.”
(As I was writing this, it was reported that an MIT Police Officer was shot by someone there at 10:48 PM EST. Monitoring.)
A note from a Reddit commenter:
To everyone asking why these people are suspects:
The FBI says they have a video that shows one of the suspects leaving a bag at the second explosion site. Through other videos and images, they determined that the other guy was likely associated with him.
The reason that they haven’t released the video of him dropping the bag is likely so they can use it during questioning to compare to the suspect’s story. Releasing it could make it hard to use as evidence.
