An echo of Colombine? #Boston bombing suspects

Well, I don’t recognize them.

They kind of look like Jean-Ralphio and Tom Haverford from Parks and Rec, but they could also be a young Cheech and Chong.

But seriously, what I’m reminded most of are these two. Harris and Klebold had grandiose plans and it’s possible that these bombers are attempting to carry on their ‘work’ or to ‘top’ them in some sort of demented copycat hero worship. The psych profile of the two of them is very interesting reading and the possibility of that sort of lightning striking isn’t that far fetched.

Or I could be completely wrong.

  1. Hey Winston,

    Hmmm. Judging by the kid’s behavior during and after the bombing (in which he was actually photographed putting a bomb next to the eight-year-old boy who died–and that alone’s gonna get him life or worse), this would seem to be a pretty accurate reading. Some people really are just psychopaths, and while it’s good to understand them, it’s also frightening, because there’s nothing one can really put in place to defend against them.

    • As the Dude would say, ‘New shit has come to light’, such as the radicalization of the older brother; I do think that the relationship between the brothers may have a similar dynamic to Harris and Klebold which enabled them to commit such horrifying acts but the whole Chechen/radical Islam thing may be the why of it.

      If I’ve said it once,
      I’ve said it a thousand times
      history never repats
      but it always rhymes
