He was injured in the blast and was running away like everyone else. But a bystander thought that was suspicious and tackled him. Police grilled him and ransacked his apartment. The new York post calls him a suspect immediately. Drudgereport links it under a screaming headline. World media pick it up. Everyone thinks he’s behind it. But. It’s. Just. Not. True.
I like how an innocent, injured, and scared man was tackled by bystanders, taken into custody, and defamed in the international media just for his skin color and his audacity to run from a fucking bombing and this warrants one tiny paragraph in an article about how “vigilant” they’re being in their investigation.

I want to cry.
This is so damn sickening. People need to stop judging people because of their color. Do people really think the person who was the bomber would run from the fucking bombs? No, he/she would probably be right near the bomb, hence suicide bomber. Or, the person probably wasn’t even on the street when the bombs went off. God, I’m so sick of this goddamned country.
