Today my eyes are bleeding. I watched Brian Williams and his cohorts yesterday while the second marathon bomber was being tracked down. He referred to the bomings as "bloodless murder", and again later as "bloodless violence". WTF? With the number of dead rising, victims' limbs blown off, skin seared from the bone, and a great many left in critical condition, how can this idiot describe this terrorist act in such a way. His reasoning is simple. If people weren't murdered with "NASTY ASSAULT WEAPONS" it is to be called "bloodless violence"...sic...
NBC and Williams then proceded to describe the two bombers as "NICE AMERICAN BOYS" who just went astray... Good students and athletes who, according to their parents, were being set up by the FBI and America in general.
Later in the day, as the suspect was cornered in his boat, and gunfire erupted again, Williams seemed intent on focusing on the types of weapons being employed by the police, and the "extreme number of rounds" being expelled. He even made a juvenile attempt at identifying the weapons by the sound they made, and to discern whether they were on full auto or semi auto mode.
Clearly this was an attempt to turn this into a GUN ISSUE...

Tamerlan Tsarnaev was killed overnight as police closed in on him and the hunt for Dzhokhar remains active. An MIT security officer was shot and killed in the firefight.
This is believed to be Dzhokhar Tsarnaev’s Youtube page. Several of the posts feature radical Islamic rhetoric. In addition, a graphic video about Syria appears on Tsarnaev’s page on a Russian version of Facebook. An IPT translation can be seen here. Among its statements, “Congratulations to you those suffer for, who go through martyrdom of Allah illaha ill Allah.”...More from Creeping
