So, some pictures of the site pre-bombing have been released on the internet.

If fucking 4chan and Reddit solve this before the FBI do... :argh!:

or if they get two random security guys killed...
The two they are pointing at are wearing identical clothing and ear pieces. If it was a coordinated effort by two people would they really wear identical clothing?

I think the worst they'll do is get two random guys swatted. Anons don't have a real track record of physical violence, and as angry as a lot of people are right now, neither does most of Boston.

If they get the evidence together and hand it to the police I think it will still be admissible. They haven't (AFAIK) hacked into anything do get access to these pictures or done anything that the FBI isn't already asking folks to do.

Fertilizer is notoriously dangerous when not treated with the proper amount of safety and respect.  There is a reason its often used in home made bombs.

But this looks like an industrial accident and nothing more.

Oh, Texas.  :x

My plant has been inspected once in 32 years.  Because I called and asked them for it.  Just saying.

Most of the regulatory bodies that are supposed to protect public health and safety have been gutted, because we don't have enough money to protect us from corporate greed, because we're too busy using it to fight terrorism overseas.

A lot of people here have the idea that they'll be fired and blacklisted from ever working again for stuff like that.  :x

I'm management.  I told my boss we ought to do it, on account of it's non-punishable if you invite them in, and if you make any corrections on time, you're immune to any surprise inspections for 364 days, AND it will make the place SAFER, which is the point in the first place.

Info Wars (I know...I know...I KNOW.) posted the surveillance pics as broken down by Anonymous on 4Chan. They're too busy reeling about them being Navy SEALs obviously planted by the government (obviously), but the pics are pretty fucking good.

http://www.infowars.com/boston-bombing-culprits-found/

Those pics are rather convincing. That prediction by the top poster in there is also pretty specific.

Some of them are. Some of them are fucked up, one points out a guy with a duffel and a guy with a backpack. Then the next pic shows the guy who had the duffel, and it says "backpack missing". You can see the shoulder strap of the duffel.

You have to wonder how many people had similar backpacks, too.

Plus there could be any number of reasons for someone to look away. Perhaps they were watching a specific runner. There's another in there where one of the guys could well be checking a chick out.

Yeah, that's another one. A certain amount of people watching is normal in crowds.

Yeah that part is a bit odd... I was thinking more about the pics with the backpack guys close to the blast area and the possible pressure cooker shape taking form in the backpack.

I realize it's highly speculative..but it's interesting nonetheless.

Your boss sounds fairly reasonable.

If something is fucked up, I have no problem reporting it to OSHA, I've done it. I reported the supermarket where I used to work for two years straight because they were too cheap to fix the heater and we were working in parkas and gloves some days (pain in the ass making change with gloves :P ). They couldn't PROVE I did it but I was fired later for a "mysterious" cash shortage. No loss since I HATED that job anyway, but I can see why people are hesitant.
