Why are you so aggressive?

If you just want an argument, then they can be had in TIO by the dozen. I think you need to calm down.

I find your off-topic ranting completely inappropriate in this thread discussing yesterday's terrible events. Can you for the love of God go and annoy people somewhere else?

Christ you're talking a load of shit today.

Have you actually read and understood what people have actually said or are you just coming up with rubbish in your head? Because you're not making any sense what so ever.

If they have the right one, outstanding news. Street cams, from which they apparently identified the individual, do have their benefits.

And now apparently they haven't. Maybe those are actually rumours rather than facts.

BBC/CNN flashed it as breaking news, but now it has been retracted. Lots of press oitside the courthouse but no solid confirmation that I can find.

@Boston_Police: Despite reports to the contrary there has not been an arrest in the Marathon attack.

Yep, here we go. No arrest.
