As I've said before, this thread is solely about the pictures. We can discuss implications such as if his backpack is off what does it mean? as well
as If his backpack is still on what does it mean? but id like to keep it as much as we can about the photographic evidence we have.
Those who have already made up there minds about this case are doing so based on a couple of things I'm not ready to believe are infallible just yet.
1, the carjacking victim they so conveniently confessed to then let live. 2, the FBI and their limited photographic evidence they've made public (no
video of suspects in police chase/shootout/them dropping backpacks). And 3, an eyewitness who was in the middle of the bombs going off.
I think the OKC bombing is relevant to put this into perspective. Was Timothy McVeigh guilty of driving a truck to the Murrah Federal building in 1995
and blowing it up? Yes, he was as far as I can tell. But that doesn't explain many other inconsistencies concerning the case, including the complicity
of the FBI, evidence suggesting McVeigh was still in the US Army and had possibly been undercover at some point, and experts - including one who spent
his whole career analyzing bomb blasts and destruction for the US military - who stated that the material in McVeighs truck alone could never have
caused the severity of the damage at the scene, insisting that additional explosives must have been placed on beams in the building.
Things are usually not as black and white in life despite how neat and tighty some of you want things to be. Life is usually messy, confusing, there's
usually a large gray area, and it takes work to sift through the BS and find the truth. If you think the truth is just handed to you, honestly I feel
sorry for you. I personally do not wish for any sort of comfort through a basic comprehension of important events.
Once again, this thread is only about the photo. I do not know if these boys are guilty or not. From what I can tell, they are guilty of something,
but I'm not quite sure what just yet. And just because I believe them to possibly be guilty of something does not stop me from questioning all
available evidence. That surely does not imply I am "defending criminals." Everyone deserves a fair trial and as a person who follows the path of
light, not darkness, I'd hate to think we hastily condemned an innocent person based on lies, half truths, and emotional based reasoning. I'm more of
a rational type of guy.
We all know what they say about suckers and how often they're born, I prefer to keep myself skeptical of all information until I can prove it's
