No El, i for one have NO pity for this young man.

within each and every one of us is the ability to understand right from wrong. he knew exactly what he was doing and showed no pity for others. he chose his own destination, now he must pay the price.
its easy to say we're christians but, we still are human, with emotions to deal with.
if there is any pity to feel it should be for the young people who lost their lives, families that have been forever torn apart - and for what???

these were "men" who were out to destroy others simply because they themselves could not cope with life, feeling its their right to make others suffer because of their own failure..

There used to be a thing called innocent until proven guilty in the US. Not anymore. And I for one do not believe half the propaganda the FBI pushes. They caused the mayhem and death that ensued once they released those photographs, photographs mind you. First it was a Saudi national in the hospital, then photographs of two kids with ball caps and backpacks walking in an area filled with people in ball caps carrying backpacks. One is dead and the other presumably cannot speak.

The entire situation is tragic.

How many people's lives have been ruined by accusation? The general public is being fed so much misinformation we believe what the authorities tell us. The pressure was too high - they had to hang it on someone. With one dead and the other clinging to life, the case can be closed if he dies with no on knowing what really happened or why.

Look what happened to Richard Jewell

It is within the realm of possibilities that these two people were not responsible for the bombs at the marathon at all.

Morning all - seems an appropriate day to come clean about something ER has known for a while.

Some of you may recall I had to scrap a planned US trip to ski because of a persistent sore throat. That sore throat has now been diagnosed as cancer at the base of the tongue and on the tonsil. Fortunately, there are no secondaries.

Chemo starts tomorrow and I've been told with that and radiotherapy to put my life on hold for 6 months. Unfortunately, this has meant cancelling all work (including our pitch for the Glastonbury Festival - thank goodness they're refunding the fee of £4,500) and will mean selling one of the yachts from the sailing school. Don't care - health is much more important than money.

Please folks, no fuss. I have every intention of beating this, the only daunting part is the unknown of treatment, and that becomes clearer tomorrow.

Tony, my thoughts and prayers are with you at this difficult time ... Hopefully, with treatment, the recovery time will lend itself to a short recovery ... Good luck and Godspeed! Hearts ~ FC <3 ...

Thanks for telling us, Tony..

I'm not using an age old cliche when I say..
They can work wonders nowadays in this field..
One sees it again & again..

Sorry too for all the disruption [work wise] in your life,
that's a nuisance, but, like you say,
health is more important.ALL important...

I, myself, have an ongoing heart problem, it is being attended to..

I have a cardiogram every so often and it is followed up...
with precise medication.

I keep taking the tablets and hoping for the best,
and being thankful,[I was going to say
'heartfully'thankful] lol.. for *every* day that dawns..

In the strangest of ways, living with
these kinds of things make one more aware..
more appreciative..
kind of brings out the colour in life, far more vividly - ironically.

MOST SINCERELY wishing you all the
very very best..

I think I can speak for us here when I say
as cyber buddies, we'll be there for you
any time.

Love & peace
and

'Yes Sir, your wish > NO FUSS(:

Yes it is true about what is said in
the Lord's Prayer, I suppose
[speaking only for myself here]
that's what make me VERY different
from the Lord who expects that]!!

I couldn't so easily turn the other cheek..
to certain horrors freely inflicted by others.

It is, of course profoundly sad that those
young brothers allowed themselves down
that road, THE JIHAD BROTHERS as they're
called here..

Whether it is a flaw in me or what I dunno,
but I cannot honestly feel pity for him,
yes he's young, but also we've been
told again and again HOW bright of mind he was,
and he got great chances in life.
Damn it, if he was that bright, it doesn't follow
that he would be so easily coerced or would go along, zombie like..

He was a bright young man and had choices.

I know someone of similar age 19.. whose Mom died suddenly,
his Dad is now ailing, they own a large Pub,
this young chap is running the pub all by himself,
as well as looking after his ill Dad who lives with him,
and in the evenings, he's is seen out chopping wood
for the furnace, always, delightful, pleasant and mannerly
and most certainly didn't get one quarter of the
educational chances that were given to the Boston
19 yr old.

We all have choices El, about what to do, even when young,
and WHAT we do with them .. and the consequences that
flow from them
it's all up to ourselves:

Tony, im so sorry to hear this. if u dont mind, i'd like to make a suggestion, join a support group. while i understand some people find it hard to do, it sometimes helps talking to strangers going thru the same thing - someone who truly understands.
take care friend, u will be in my prayers..

Imagine they'd immediately
put a dog to death if it bit someone!

When a Liverpool player does it,
it's Different!!
he's excused 'cos he's talented!!!???

WHERE are their principles? Ummm!

Is that fair.

Not at all, in my book..

[I'm not suggesting he be put down,
but they should show CHARACTER and respect
for his victim .. and let him go]

Would value other opinions!

I agree with everything you say PFfff..except I do not regard the
surviving young man as not being able to cope with life...
I certainly don't condone what they did...just feel that he is the only one answerable and that it was out of character.
Hardly good timing on my part to show any sympathy, feelings still running high, and I never could understand people who forgave those
who took the lives of their loved ones during the periods we had the numerous attacks over here, but somehow I feel there was a world of difference in their premeditated attacks and the one in Boston.
