I want to talk for just a second about this guy. His name is Sunil Tripathi. He’s a Philadelphia-area native attending Brown University, who has been missing for several weeks (to very little national media coverage).
Last night, some dope thought that they heard his name on their police scanner as a possible suspect in the Boston bombings and the conspiratorial internet hivemind (4chan, reddit, Infowars, RT, et al. launched into full attack mode ).
The scrutiny was so intense that Tripathi’s family had to take down the Facebook page they had created to find him. These internet conspiracy theory assholes then decided that meant FBI/CIA/whoever had taken down the page as a way to cover up their involvement in training Tripathi as some sort of Manchurian candidate or something.
Now, even after the names of the actual suspects have been released (Tamerlan and Dzhokhar Tsarnaev), these conspiracy fuckers still haven’t apologized for slandering an innocent person. Alex Jones and his band of misfits are trying to blame the mainstream media for their own mistakes.
Don’t let them do this. Alex Jones and his ilk are all lying sacks of shit who only spread these conspiracies as a way to make money. They don’t care about the people they hurt in the process, they just want pageviews. Please help spread this if you can.
