    Everyone wants to be the person who finds the answer as to "who dunnit." The search for the bombers was not a video game, yet it was played by these people like it was one. As the uncle said, "Shame on you!" referring to the bombers. Shame on you for accusing innocent people of this terrible crime. An apology on-line only goes to those who play this ridiculous game. Next time "Think before engaging the mouth."

    There was no real crowd-sourced "investigation"...it was basically racism, with anyone of middle-eastern or south-east asian origin being marked in the pics and videos for reasons such as "not looking at the race", wearing a baseball cap and so forth.

    Well, yes and no. If you read the FBI's description of the younger brother's actions, they say he spoke on the phone, then when the whole crowd turned to watch the first bomb go off, he walked away, not looking the same way as the crowd. This was a valid angle to consider, along with other factors.

    Not wanting to defend Reddit or whoever commented there, and yes, there are racists, of all races, in the USA, but the majority of US people (of any race) are fairly tolerant of each other.

    It was racist profiling, bottom line. Heck, even on this site there were heaps of people automatically thinking it was AQ and bashing Islam in general. The missing student should sue for millions.
