Fake Images of Boston Marathon & Disinformation (WARNING: Graphic Content).

stevenson boston marathon runnerUniversity of Mobile’s Cross Country Coach Alastair Stevenson, a Boston marathon veteran and eye witness of the bombings on Monday has said that “Police told us that bomb drill was training exercise”.

In an interview with Anthony Gucciardi, Stevenson gave a first hand account of events leading up to the actual bombings.

At the starting line this morning, they had bomb sniffing dogs and the bomb squad out there,” he said. “They kept announcing to runners not to be alarmed, that they were running a training exercise.”

He added, “I’ve run a lot of races like this one, but I never saw bomb dogs at the starting line of any running event.
Have a listen to this 4 minute clip.

So why all the disinformation and fake images going viral on Facebook and youtube? With such a testomony of an eye witness and the obvious presence of sniffer dogs and the bomb squad prior to the bombings that raised more than enough questions, then why the need for disinformation sensationalism?

Disinformation is fake information deliberately created to distract and discredit the truth movement by trolls, shills, provocateurs and just down right stupid people. However, I have seen those in the truth movement also posting the fake images below without checking facts, perhaps they were caught up in the frenzy of events and Alastair Stevenson’s account.

The image below claims an 8 year-old girl running for Sandy Hook kids took part in the event and killed.

The 8 year-old was Martin Richards who died from his injuries, his father made the statement below.

544820_10151549097973258_914427708_n“My dear son Martin has died from injuries sustained in the attack on Boston. My wife and daughter are both recovering from serious injuries. We thank our family and friends, those we know and those we have never met, for their thoughts and prayers. I ask that you continue to pray for my family as we remember Martin. We also ask for your patience and for privacy as we work to simultaneously grieve and recover. Thank you.” – Bill Richard 

 

The image below claims that the victim in the top left is the same person on the right  Nick Vogt, an Afghanistan war veteran. Here is his facebook page Nick Vogt Family

The man in the top left is really 27 year-old Jeff Bauman Jr. His father also issued a statement via facebook.
Boston victim, lost leg
Jeff BaumanJeff Bauman Jr. sustained extensive damage to both of his legs during the Boston Marathon terror attack Monday afternoon, but he survived the explosion and is in stable condition, according to his father. The 27-year-old had to have both of his legs amputated, but his father, Jeff Bauman Sr., wrote on Facebook that his son is going to pull through, despite the brutal wounds he sustained.

“Thank you for all your thoughts and prayers; they did help greatly. Unfortunately, my son was just in the wrong place at the wrong time,” Bauman wrote in a Tuesday-morning Facebook post “He had to have both lower limbs removed due to the excessive vascular and bone damage. … He went back into surgery last night at midnight for exploratory due to fluid in his abdomen. He came out at 2:30, and doctors informed us he was doing better.”

This image has come under great scrutiny for various reason (click on image to enlarge). As I have never witnessed any kind of carnage except in Hollywood movies, I can’t  really comment but why is Jeff Bauman not being attended to while those with lesser injuries are receiving first aid? And wouldn’t he be unconscious or screaming in pain?

This image that was going around claimed to be Donna Bruce, who was a few blocks away when the bomb went off.  In fact it is Dawn Hochsprung, victim of the Sandy Hook shootings and the school principal at that time. Why did the media make this claim about Dawn?

This is Donna Bruce who finished the race just before the bombs went off and wasn’t close enough to hear or see the bombings.

Donna Bruce describes Boston as ‘somber’ day after marathon bombing
DONNA BRUCE BOSTON MARATHONSomber is how Madison’s Donna Bruce describes the scene in Boston, one day following the bombing at the Boston Marathon.

Bruce, a partner at BKD, LLP in Jackson, finished the race in 3 hours, 50 minutes, some 20 minutes before two bombs ripped through the streets. She says she wasn’t close enough to hear or see the bombing when it happened and was actually getting much of her information from people back home, in the forms of texts and calls, in the minutes after event.

  1. u pathetic idiots if u believe any of this is real, ok,,lets push a double amputee in a wheel chair for 1 mile down the street & notto mention have him hold his leg on, FAKE FAKE ! WAKE UP AMERICA OR THEY WILL REALLY SOCK IT TO U

    • I agree. That man got no medical attention from the still photographs that are given. I worked at an ambulance service and I know that they would NEVER sit him up (would speed up bleeding) and they would put him on a stretcher ASAP. People need to ope their eyes and review the footage and pics that we are given (very little actually)

    All of the “conspiracy” people…you are really are f#$%ked up. Quit trying to convince people that the injuries to Jeff Bauman are fake. What’s wrong with you people? Can’t you have any sympathy for someone who is gravely wounded and obviously in shock? Do you actually think that someone would have the means and intelligence to set up some way to “fake” these injuries? Get a life! It’s bad enough that people lost their lives but to suggest that this was all faked is really beyond normal human reasoning. Do you know how really disturbing this is to the people who were there and the people who were injured? What are you trying to gain…support for your “conspiracy” theory? All you are doing is showing how stupid and paranoid you are. I feel sorry for you.

    • You said: “Do you actually think that someone would have the means and intelligence to set up some way to “fake” these injuries?”, yes I do believe that this has all been faked, a false flag event. The police deny reports of the bomb squad and sniffer dogs being there before the explosions, they were seen on rooftops, they were working the dogs prior to the explosions and an announcement telling people that this was just a drill, again prior to any explosions and yet it has been denied. The police and main stream media have also ignored the men all dressed in the same uniform, carrying heavy looking back packs hanging around near both explosions and as it turns out they are from a company called ‘Craft’ which you should google. All of a sudden, the death toll has went up from 3 to 72 with over 200 people injured. The police asked the public for help to identify the 2 brothers even though they have been watched by the FBI for over two years so they already knew who they were. When your being watched with such scrutiny, you can’t even go for a pee without ‘them’ knowing about it so why did they ask the public for help? MSM were also caught faking images from the scene and the police commissioner has referred to the alleged bombers as ‘actors’. There is much speculation about Jeff Bauman, the man who had his legs blown off and who was wheeled away in a chair and conscious. Prior to this, as seen in images, he was left unattended by everyone around him, while people with lesser injuries were being ‘helped’, ignoring Bauman. I suggest you do so more research and look at images more carefully, this isn’t a conspiracy theory, it is fact. Watch this video, where amputee actors are used in training so that soldiers can learn how to deal with ‘victims’.

  3. these crisis actors are well trained in the art of using social media. they will construct fake facebook accounts. they will post on these types of forums-usually with a link to a faked account. Google and Yahoo participate by scrubbing their real information so there is no trail.
