First, notice the suspected bomber, younger brother Dzhokhar Tsarnaev, circled in red and his backpack circled below him, also in red. The dark green mailbox would be just to the right and out of frame.
Note: this is the photo authorities are using as "proof" that Dzhokhar left his bag which exploded. The bag would be on the ground about 3 feet behind the steel barrier and next to the tree, as circled in red.
This image shows where both bomb sites are, #2 is where Dzhokhar Tsarnaev is alleged to have left his grey (with black trim) backpack, though we have been told since day 1 that all-black nylon backpacks held the pressure cookers.
Here is an outside shot of the area of bomb location #2 from Google Maps, however, the restaurant is now The Forum. This is clearly an older image from Google and probably taken in summer since the trees have their leaves.
This is the photo the media is using to show the two brothers together before the bombing with backpacks. However, after an extensive Google maps search, I cannot seem to locate where it is based on the background. If you know the location, please leave a comment below.
On the left edge of the photo is a plaque, looks like something a hotel or similar establishment would have, and below that a smaller red sign. It is most likely a doorway with tan/beige paint and the one ridge line through at their head level. Note there is just one ridgeline in the facade.
This is the current restaurant.
If you live in the Boston area or plan to travel there, please support the businesses in this area, they were shut down for at least a week and lost much $ revenue.
To clear up any confusion, this is the mailbox in the photos.
This is the type of trash can that lines the streets of Boston.
Here is a Google screenshot from just down the street from the second blast site to show what the trash cans look like.
This video frame is from before the second bomb went off, observe there is nothing on the ground to the left (our POV) of the dark green mailbox. But there is a woman with long brown hair, sunglasses, a white/light shirt or sweater and dark jacket holding a tan purse-type bag.
This is from a video which, as far as I know, has not been released.
Just found this one, the tan bag is hanging on the end of her knee, and her left hand is keeping it from falling. The shopping bag has not yet been put in place.
But now look in the left photo. Look at what appears to be a white plastic shopping bag behind the barrier and in between the two ladys just to the left of tan-purse-lady. Then look at the photo on the right, and it's gone but the same two ladys are still there!!
A shopping bag is now on the ground to the left (our POV) of the mailbox with the same woman holding the tan purse-type bag hanging over the barrier, and in the same posture as before.
This means she would have seen the person who left the shopping bag.
Note: the plastic bag that was previously between the two women is not in this photo either.
Now the tan purse-type bag has been placed on top of the shopping bag and left behind by the lady who was carrying it.
Here is closer photo just before the blast of the tan purse-type bag on top of the shopping bag.
This is not a trash can, so it's not logical to assume someone left a bag of garbage next to a mailbox.
Also, isn't it odd that the woman loitered, holding her bag for a while, and then decided to leave it on top of the shopping bag? If she was going to discard the tan bag, why not do that right away instead of hanging on to it for as long as she did? And why right on top of the shopping bag?
Let's now look at the site of the blast after the explosion. Notice how the metal barrier on the left has been blown back on top of the people, towards the sidewalk and buildings. The section between the mailbox and the barrier (which has fallen back on the people) is no longer visible in this photograph but has clearly NOT been hurled into the street as a blast from behind would cause. And with the tree right behind that section, where the hell did that entire barrier go?? The photo was blurred by the media due to to the graphic nature of the images, but was it photoshopped too?
Click on the image to enlarge it and look closely at the powder burn mark on the mailbox. It's located on the street-side left only, implying the explosion came from below it where the shopping/tan bags were. It seems that if the explosion came from behind the barrier, where the tree is, everyone should have been blown into the street, not backwards.
Notice in this photo there is more blurring, including the left side of the mailbox where the powder burn marks are. In the above photo it appears that the short end of the aluminum barrier, the small section sticking out to the left of the mailbox (our POV) had wrapped around the mailbox from the blast. You decide if the blast was more likely to come from the shopping and tan bag placed at the base of the barrier, or a backpack a few feet behind it.
Check out the blast. The arrow pointing down is where the bomb was, so why does the blast go so far back towards the buildings?
A grisley photo but let's observe a couple of things.
For one, where is the metal barrier in the open space? It was in the pre-blast photos and the barriers were tied together with some kind of twist-tie. This is a shot of what the media blurred in the other photo stills.
And two, notice the guy with the backpack? He has pulled that barrier off the people it fell back on. How do we know this? It's common sense. He wouldn't push it over on them would he? So look at the two photos above in which he is going to the barrier to right it.
An injured innocent spectator.
Another shot of the chaos.
This is a few minutes later, as the metal barrier has been removed in the right side of the photo.
Observe where the tree and the steel grate on the ground that surrounds it are in relation to the mailbox. Look at what appears to be a dark burn or powder mark just to the left of the mailbox where the shopping bag and tan purse were.
In this photo they are pulling up the steel grating around the tree. Why?
It's logical to assume that small bits of the backpack and bomb fell through the cracks after the explosion, so maybe they are looking for them.
Interesting that two people in clean-up suits are hard at work, two more are observing them, and 8 are casually standing around chatting without, it seems, a care in the world?
This is the same location, a while later, and the tree has been removed!
Short while later, see anything interesting?
All the activity is in and around the Forum cafe right behind the blast and the other restaurant to the left. But there's not one person in the cafe to the right? If a bomb was in the shopping/tan bag beneath the mailbox, the mailbox would have blocked debris from flying in that direction, but if the bomb were in the backpack as reported it would be a few feet back and clear of the mailbox!
We've been told all along that the bag was black nylon, but look at the photo we've all seen over and over and over. It's white, or more likely grey, with black trim and some purple.
This is a photo some are saying is the grey bag. The only problem? This isn't the right location. This photo is taken from the location of the first explosion where the older brother apparently used his all-black backpack.
And why a microphone cable? Below is a mic cable you can buy almost anywhere, for comparison.
This is the first bombing location. Look at the stone at the base of the building, plus the brick sidewalk, and compare. The second location was by a tree and behind that was a black iron fence surrounding the outdoor seating of the Forum cafe, and the sidewalk was not red brick.
Here's a microphone cable.
Let's revisit the photo of the suspect at the second explosion site with his backpack on the ground. There are claims he's still physically holding on to it, you be the judge. The Feds have not released the video they claim to have of him walking away without it. It could be because they want to save it for the trial and don't want the public scrutiny and analysis that would come with it. But as of now, we are relying on blind faith that he left the bag.
Here is the wide shot of Dzhokhar Tsarnaev walking away from the scene, not standing around observing the scene as the media tells us.
And let's consider that this photo is being used by the media to say he is strolling along casually, away from the scene, which suggests foreknowledge. The media is actually saying the speed of his walk means he's guilty. Well then, what about the bald man in the tan jacket, behind and to his right, who is literally standing and watching? Wouldn't that make him, or anyone loitering, MORE guilty? Another example of falacious reasoning.
Is that Glenn Beck in the blue sweater? Just kidding.
And a close up of the same image, the media and authorities claim he has no backpack, but how can you tell? His posture looks odd and he was carrying the backpack on his right shoulder.
Look at the next photo below:
A google maps search confirms this is indeed the corner at the end of the street, and on the same side as the bombing.
This photo has always been interesting, find Waldo. Can you locate the spotter on the roof? Bomb sniffing dogs, undercover special ops, loudspeakers asking folks to stay calm, it's just a drill. And spotters?
The strap is black! So how can you say he has no backpack in the above photo? You can't, any more than you can say he does.
And did you notice they blurred out some of the faces in this video but not others? The guy on the left (not shown here) standing in the doorway had his face blurred but folks walking by these guys did not. In fact, there sure were a lot of people hanging out in doorways!
Meanwhile, we're told by the media through the authorities....
Some say The Punisher, probably just a big movie buff. But also logos for Blackwater, Craft, and various Special Ops groups.
Who are these guys? Seals? DHS? Craft or Blackwater?
Earpieces and black nylon bags?
Bomber suspect #2 had a grey backpack. The media says the pressure cookers were in black nylon backpacks. All these guys, dressed the same, have black nylon backpacks. Not saying these guys are the bombers, but who's more likely to have the bombs, the guy with the grey backpack or one of the many many many guys with a black backpack?
Media still wont bring it up, interesting.
Nope, still not talking.
And we're still waiting to find out who this guy is, after his aunt said 100% that it was her nephew, suspect #1, the older brother - Tamerlan.
One witness said in an interview that Tamerlan was hit by a black police SUV, then shot multiple times by cops. She did not think there was any way he would have survived. The interview can be found on YouTube.
The bombers did carjack a black Mercedes SUV, however, so to be fair, the witness may have been mistaken, witnesses are not always reliable. But the offical report was that there was a shoot-out, and somehow the older brother got out of the vehicle, was shot and then hit by his own brother as he tried to escape. Then somehow, this young kid, who was shot himself, managed to evade all the cops, ditch the SUV and get away. Quite a tale if you ask me.
What did we get because of this?
The government no longer has to declare martial law anymore, they just do it. And like 9/11, though they failed us even with all the $ trillions in spending, they will end up patting themselves on the back for a job well done while diverting away any blame.
And what happened while we were on the edge of our seats all week?
With American Idol and baseball on, it's doubtful Americans would know what CISPA is even if were a slow news week.
From a bipartisan report, also not talked about by the media,
Yep, Bush, Clinton, and Obama, all war criminals. But who cares, the NBA playoffs are on!
And all I got was this lousy T-shirt.
And Obama continues pushing through unConstitutional executive orders to chip away at our 2nd Amendment.
