    No doubt the FBI is already hard at work on it. In the best traditions of the Atlanta Olympic bombing, they'll have someone framed in record time.

    Can a person give blood if they're juiced?

    You do realize that people who're finishing the race an hour or two after the finish are probably not juicing, and are running for the endorphins, yes?

    Performance enhancing drugs are to widespread to not suspect there prescence in all sports.

    Oh, I'm sure they're present. It's just that anyone finishing an hour or more after the leader should be embarrassed that not even juicing will do it.

    I've got friend who're runners - they don't run to place. They run to run.

    I think someone will be claiming "responsibility" soon, and Gitmo will feature prominantly in their justifictions. It's just a feeling though. I'm probably wrong.

    Not that this justifies the criminals who did this, and I hope they're caught and dealt with severely, but gee, isn't this what our government is up to the neck involved in abroad? Who is giving Syrian rebels weaponry and do you suppose only belligerents are hurt by that? Are we not slaughtering innocents by the hundreds with our drones? Name any unrest and bloodshed in certain parts of the world and you can bet we're involved in some way, from supplying bullets to one of the parties to supplying them with advisors. The people being oppressed know where the arms are coming from.

    that's why the moslem world is celebrating over this, so "we" can feel what it's like.

    We are a target because we meddle where we ought not.

    Got 'em. Note to criminal/terrorist a$$holes: you might not want to place your backpacks on a street covered in cameras and expect to get away with that.

    They have someone, let's wait for some evidence before hanging the guy/gal.

    They are so eager to nail someone that I will be really surprised if it doesn't turn out to be another Richard Jewell. They've already harassed a couple Saudis (one injured) and ransacked their apartment. Who's next up on the deputy dogs' list?

    Or the poor attorney from Seattle (?) who was accused of one of the bombings in Europe - in Spain?

    Apparently, LE was interviewing everybody departing from BOS yesterday or the day before asking to see their photos. I think I probably would have said I didn't have any and then reviewed them after I got home. If I saw anything then, I'd turn them over the LE in order to try to prevent the student scenario from repeating itself.

    Funny how that works. The powers-that-be bully and arrest folks with cameras unless they're coming up dry and need help from those people.

    Amen. Remember Richard Jewell, fingered and destroyed by the FBI, wrongly.

    Positive ID from very clear video from Lord & Taylor's, not from some BS roundup, is ideal evidence--assuming that is what it is--a big IF.
    Not worried about hanging somehow. This person will have far more access to an adequate defense than innocents bereft of due process and on the No Fly/No Work list because of paid informants, thugs, and idiots.

    I truly hope the bomber has been identified and will be arrested and charged. I have no sympathy for these types and I support the death penalty for crimes like this. But, if it is the wrong person their life will still be questioned from this day forward. I am all for justice in cases like this but I don't want to see a rush to charge unless the evidence is very clear.

    I'm with you. We can't pretend to be innocent victims, pure as the driven snow, when we let our psychopathic leaders run wild around the globe committing atrocities.

    There was horror, ghastly horror at Boston. A despicable act. Yet that same despicable horror is unleashed every time a Predator fires down on people.
