Why isn't there anyone honest enough to say,

This was an awful, vicious act and we're hurting, and a lot of families are going through unimaginable grief - but we've done the same, no, we've done much much worse to others for reasons that are horrible to even begin to contemplate. There are people right now who, at our hands, suffer a Boston almost every day.

It wouldn't in any any any any way diminish the tragedy that was Boston, or New for that matter.


We have NOT done the same. The innocent victims and their families have NOT done the same.

@wandeljw,
And even if "we" had, why would we feel compelled to say so?

Why indeed!

We could start with 'honesty' unless that's too big a step for you.

Teen: I Am Not the Boston Marathon Bomber

The teenage boy authorities once investigated as possibly being connected to the Boston Marathon bombing told ABC News today he was shocked to see his face pop up on television and all over social media.

Salah Barhoun, 17, said he went to the police yesterday to clear his name after he found himself tagged in pictures online. He had just gone to watch the race, he said, but soon after the explosions, he was singled out by internet sleuths as looking suspicious. Federal authorities passed around images of Barhoun, attempting to learn more information about him, sources told ABC News.

Today The New York Post ran a story featuring a picture of Barhoun and another man circled in red, but said it was unclear if they were the same as two potential suspects spotted by law enforcement Wednesday.

When he saw the front page story, with the headline "Bag Men," Barhoun said, "It's the worst feeling that I can possibly feel… I'm only 17."

ABC News producers found Barhoun through social media and spoke to him today at his home.

You guys should recycle the Japanese as the new boogeyman. CI has been acting awfully suspicious of late.

Interesting choice of a get-away vehicle.

Don't you find it interesting that instead of taking out as many citizens as possible, and many certainly would have been possible, these two young men, basically, simply fled?

Isn't it also interesting that the younger of the two hid inside this boat instead of breaking into a house and killing all the occupants? Or even going house to house doing as much "collateral damage" as possible?

It seems they had more bombs. Wouldn't there have been ample opportunity to expand the "collateral damage"?

@JTT,
Good questions.
Dzhokhar Tsarnaev was taken alive.
Maybe we'll get answers.

@roger,
Great work from CNN offering quotes from the police like "We know you're in there. Come out with your hands up." http://news.blogs.cnn.com/2013/04/19/live-blog-police-action-in-boston/

#pffft
I think will be some mutual razzing between social and traditional media.

I may have misread, I thought the boat was in the yard of some friends , two guys and a girl taken into custody earlier?

I see. Thanks, Hinge. I guess his age might well have had something to do with his reluctance to "go down swinging".

The homeowner noticed a rip in the tarp, went to the boat and saw "a
bloody mess" inside. He then called the cops.

CNN seems to be competing with Fox for the title of worst news source on TV.
