Update: 8:05 AM EST — Media Flips ‘Confirmed’ Boston Suspect From Sunil Tripathi To Dzhokar Tsarnaev

Update 7:04 AM EST: Media outlets like IB Times and RT reported confirmation from Boston Police that Sunil Tripathi was the suspect, however a new AP report contradicts these accounts and is reporting the suspect to be Dzhokhar A. Tsarnaev. 

As news reports come in identifying FBI Boston Marathon bombing suspect as missing student Sunil Tripathi, it becomes clear that major community-driven internet boards like 4Chan are actually light years ahead of the mainstream media.

sunil tripathiThe Politically Incorrect (/pol/) board on 4Chan has generated a large number of on-target Boston Marathon images that have now gone mega viral and ignited new-found questions regarding the event at large. Mixed with eyewitness accounts of bomb drills/training exercises and the apparent presence of private military firm Craft International, the quest to push these into the mainstream media is now larger and more successful than ever.

4Chan Political Board Identifies Boston Marathon Suspect As Sunil Tripathi

But perhaps even more compelling than some of the images generated from /pol/ and its thousands of users, is the fact that posters rapidly identified the FBI Boston Marathon bombing suspect  in a matter of hours after the FBI released the photos online. Reports have now detailed police transmissions listing Sunil Tripathi as the suspect in the photos.

There is even a strange story behind Sunil Tripathi, who actually has an online presence. In fact, Sunil lists one of his ‘liked’ books on Facebook to be Ishmael by Daniel Quinn on his Facebook page.

What’s more is that Sunil Tripathi has also been reported as missing from his Philadelphia apartment since March 16, 2013 at 1:30 AM. Described as ‘depressed’ and troubled, Sunil left behind a strange and cryptic note that was construed as either suicidal or nonsensical.

More 4Chan Predictions

The fact that Sunil Tripathi’s information was able to be dug up so quickly by 4Chan’s community and posted hours before the police even managed to engage Sunil in Watertown shows the lightning fast capabilities of alternative news and the internet at large. This is why the mainstream media is failing to hold an audience and experiencing dwindling statistics while alternative news sources that capture the pulse of ongoing investigation manage to come out on top. 4Chan has provided graphical and written backup to the many questions posed regarding the Boston Marathon at large, from the presence of military men and numerous suspicious individuals to the identification of Sunil Tripathi.

Now, let’s see how the media spins Sunil Tripathi into a gun-loving lunatic in order to push the anti-gun agenda. It reminds me of another interesting post from 4Chan that was originally scoffed at (click for full size):

I would also add that Sunil, if not both suspects, will ultimately be found to be taking antidepressant type drugs as with 90% of mass shooting suspects.

    CNN says they might be from the Balkans. Look up CIA BLACK SITES and TORTURE TAXI to see how much presence the United States still has in those places.

    They seem to be a bit lost and they're pointing fingers in a lot of directions. I don't think they know any more than we do.
