Boston Marathon Terror Attack - Part 2

Sounds like they might have caught him? Users on Reddit just now saying a new person in custody, people saying "they got him they got him"

Nothing confirmed
 
Watching Wolf Blitzer on CNN...so far nothing about anyone new arrested.
 
You know I was going to make a comment in here about how I can understand what she's saying. I also feel like she feels cornered by this media making these allegations about these kids she's known longer than any of us.

I think their family is coming off as far too stand-offish right now, though. I also feel that attitude comes from because some of them come from overseas and they feel targeted for not being natural citizens. Just my 2 cents, though.
Also maybe like you said, they just feel cornered by the media. That could put anyone on the defensive, not to mention annoying you even more. It must be difficult enough trying to get through this without media scrutiny.
 
I keep seeing info on the guy's father. He is in denial something fierce.
 
From Reddit update thread:

EDIT 255 5:21 PM: A subject was taken into custody. Identity not confirmed.

I can absolutely see this. Its a lot for family members, especially if they haven't spoken to them in years.

That's the feeling I'm getting too.

From what I can tell the parents seemed completely inattentive to their kids and now are in major denial. Something Uncle Ruslan along with the other uncle even alluded to during their respective press conference.
 
There's been tons of rumors and it seems about 60% of initial rumors get shot down, so I'm not getting my hopes up yet that they got him until I see it on some news source (besides reddit which gave us about five different bogus bombing suspects).
 
Just spoke with my cousin again. She's just a couple minutes away from all this, and she's saying she's still on lock down, and the guy hasn't been found. :(

I know. Nothing is confirmed yet. I'm just saying what I'm seeing on reddit and Twitter. Take it all with a huge grain of salt.

Yeah, in my opinion I can see a lot of this attitude coming from another underlying issue here with immigrants and whatnot. I'm sure some of the journalists questions or tone to the family members is maybe also a little condescending or disrespectful.
 
EDIT 259 5:30 PM: WHITE HAT IS AT LARGE! Considered armed and deadly. May be wearing suicide vest. Location unknown.
 
Some people saying a plane crashed into a building near Williamsburg airport in VA

EDIT: Not a building... a tree
 
Oh my god did you guys see the SWAT guy high-five the little kid? Aw.
 
Too much craziness and confusion on the internet to keep up with. I'm not sure the news media is any less confused either.
 
Are there any videos online of the parents' statements of denial and whatnot? I'd like to see those.
 
Watching CNN....a woman reporter standing in the street commenting about how deserted it is because of the police lockdown said..."It's like a bomb went off somewhere..."

NO **** LADY!!!!!!!!
