"He was a familiar part of the community, he didn't isolate himself," said former classmate Rebecca Mazur.

He was a volunteer who helped out with disabled kids.

He worked a part time job at the Harvard pool.

ALL the people who knew him described him as a kid who would never do something like that.

Where is the proof?

There are two sides to everything.

The first brother was "killed" last night, and so there goes one half of the story.

The other brother will most likely be killed as well, he's a 19 year old kid who has the whole country looking for him.

One look at his Twitter account, and you see he was just a normal kid: https://twitter.com/j_tsar
Arggggg, and I swore I wasn't going to do this.....

Are you saying this is a conspiracy? Or are you saying that they don't have have proof it was them? Or are you saying they have not made the evidence public yet.

Because if you think it is a conspiracy, any evidence or proof they show you, you are not going to believe anyway.

I think they are just trying to pinpoint these two men because they have nobody else to blame it on.

I wouldnt be surprised if it were a conspiracy but i cant speak on that because i dont know

Apparently the dead brother was wearing a bomb when he was killed. If true, that's not suspicious at all.

APPARENTLY.

According to who? The media? The FBI? THe government?

For fucks sakes. Where is the god damn proof? Why should I just believe what they tell me?

I'm seeing reactions from people that know the kid and they all say there is NO WAY he did it.

I dont know man, maybe he had them all fooled, maybe him and his bro really did do it, but I don't know..something just doesn't add up..

I think we should all just accept that right now, nobody knows a whole heck of a lot and should withhold judgment on any parties, authorities included until we do know a bit more.

Meh, there's frequently people who say "that guy would never do that".

I don't know either way. We'll see how it all shakes out. But, if the government was just looking for someone to blame, they could do better.

It's kinda the reason why it's hard to believe anything anymore.

Most information comes from a source that provides no backup sources...so nobody really knows.

It's just the world we live in now.

Which is odd since there is someone everywhere gathering news 24/7, they shouldn't be short of sources. I guess that's also part of the problem, the 24/7 news cycle demands news and they run with shit that often isn't backed up yet and it's rushed so they can be the first to report it.

Just like earlier this week, there was news that they had arrested the suspects. People then descended on the court house and it was a bullshit story.

Agreed. But also Jeff, so much of the actual information is kept hidden, confidential.

It's just impossible to decipher as a normal person.

Couldn't agree more.

However, I certainly do NOT trust or side with political extremists, religious zealots, OR the US government.

So, knowing that, just assume nothing that comes from this will surprise me.

Too much hate on this planet all around man.

It has zero to do with conspiracies, it's right there in front of us to see.

It did take longer than expected, to be fair. Not sure how a 19-year-old managed to evade pretty much an entire police force on empty streets for nearly a day.

seriously.

And because they've shut down the city the last day and a half and this is on 24/7 maybe it just seems longer than it's been.
