Report: Arrest of ‘Dark-Skinned Male’ Imminent in Marathon Bombing, Media Hardest Hit

Posted by on Apr 17, 2013 at 1:43 pm

Well, this is a positive development.

A source has confirmed to Fox 25 that investigators have identified a suspect believed to be responsible for the Boston Marathon bombing and that an arrest is imminent.

The source said that authorities believe the suspect was caught on camera at Lord and Taylor and that investigators have made significant progress in the case.

It was reported that the suspect could be seen on camera dropping a black bag.

CNN’s John King has has reported the suspect is a dark-skinned male, which greatly upsets the delicate sensibilities of some in the media.

She must be in the David Sirota camp.

Via The H2.

Update: Video was captured from the  Lord & Taylor on Boylston Street. CNN now reporting an arrest has been made. Suspect reportedly will be brought to court shortly. Wondering if it’s this guy, who we guess could pass as dark-skinned, depending on the definition of the day. Here’s another shot with what looks to be a heavily stuffed backpack (images via Ace).

Update: Apparently two have been arrested.

Let the snark begin.

Update: All sorts of conflicting reports, so we’ll leave it with this for now from the BPD.

    You’re right. What matters is capturing the suspect and letting justice take its course.
    There are some disturbing comments at Gateway. Just as some “progressives” clearly want this to involve a white American, preferably Tea Party, some of the commenters seem to want this to be a Muslim with dark skin. I understand preferring that the suspect look as little like oneself as possible but some of the comments are still ugly.
    We have left-wing terrorists in the US, we have Muslim terrorists, we may have drug cartel operatives, and the US has had more incidents triggered by eco-terrorists over the last thirty years than by any other group or ideology. And yes, there are reactionary thugs in the US.
    I won’t blame all white guys or all Muslims or all watermelons, regardless of who the perp turns out to be.

    Well, if it is a white guy…he probably wouldn’t be hiding. He’s just going to end up with a nice cushy job at Columbia University.

    gwen ifill needs to get over herself. She’s an uppity affirmative action PBS hack and not a real news analyst. She is also a part of the media that uses and promotes code words like “teens” for describing groups of violent coloreds. That another media person reported the suspect as a “dark skinned male” does not offend or surprise me.
