I believe we have had this discussion as a group before and the consistence was it is equivalent to a sucker a punch. Really no way to defend a sucker punch you can certainly retaliate after the first hit but how do you defend something you have no idea is coming.

We don't live in a country where street bombs are common place so when one goes off it is a sucker punch.

I think RR was being tongue in cheek about passive citizenry

re: Update: Second Boston Marathon Suspect Captured

So I leave work at 2 for a meeting and the last headline on CNN is an arrest has been made. Im like great. I come home and pull up the news a little after 4 and no arrest has been made.

Can the media been fined for sh*t like this? They really really should, its horrible.

Then they wonder why conspiracy theories start. Somebody will use the wrong announcement as proof that the govt is covering up something. And it just sort of spirals out of control.

I understand like Matty said, in the initial hour or two after an incident conflicting reports may occur. But at some point the media ought to be held accountable for unverified and misleading reports. Somehow allowing for 1st amendment rights at the same time.

Ironically, the demand for information by the public may lead to the competition among the media outlets to get the information as quick as possible, leading to mistakes.

Hope that they catch the person or creeps that have done this. As they destroyed lives and three people are killed over it!

Again, more shitty reporting today. "He was caught";"Boston police say that not suspect has been caught"(again). Smh
