Not All Muslims bomb Boston Marathon and shoot up Watertown, MA

The following facts have nothing to do with any other facts, past, present, or future. This is happening in a vacuum.

Gregg Re is liveblogging the chaos in Watertown, which is ongoing. Some of the highlights, if you want to call them that:

At least one heavily armed assailant with “grenades” and “explosives” and firing “automatic gunfire” is loose near MIT’s campus, according to police dispatchers and the school’s emergency website, and police say are looking for “dark-skinned” and “Middle Eastern” suspects…

Multiple media outlets have reported that at least one police officer has died…

First suspect was reportedly dead on arrival at a local hospital, Mt. Auburn…

The AP has identified the two suspects as coming from the “Russian region near Chechnya.” … Dzhokhar A. Tsarnaev, 19, is reportedly the remaining suspect…

This photo of the 19-year-old “Suspect 2″ (real name either Dzhokhar or Djohar A. Tsarnaev), who is currently terrorizing Boston is now circulating on social media. According to Russia Today, here is his social media profile. The profile identifies the man as Muslim, with his world view listed as “Islam…”

This disturbing video was taken from Suspect 2′s (19-year-old Dzhokhar Tsarnaev’s) social media page:

NBC reports the older brother and deceased “Suspect 1″ was 26-year-old TAMERLAN TZARNAEV…

“All officers, use extreme caution. Suspect may have suicide vest on,” officer says on Boston PD scanner. … “SUSPECT IS REPORTED TO BE WEARING SUICIDE VEST,” another officer says seconds later. … DECEASED “SUSPECT 1″ HAD TRIGGER ON HIS BODY FOR EXPLOSIVE DEVICE…

Tactical team is in place at Willow Park. “We don’t need any more help here,” one officer said over the police radio at 8:38 a.m., before voicing concern that units are rushing into the Willow Park area haphazardly, and abandoning previously secured perimeters and locations…

That’s where it stands right now. One way or another, justice will be done.

What could have motivated these men to do these things? We may never know.

Just try to remember the real victims.

Update: Some much-needed perspective from a veteran newsman.
