Yesterday, Reddit users created the “Find the Boston Bombers” and it was there that several people wearing backpacks and looking rather suspicious raised concerns about their identity and their involvement at the 2013 Boston Marathon where two homemade bombs made with domestic pressure cookers killed 3 people and injured over 140, many lost one or two limbs, and the race to find the scumbag responsible for this massacre was on, not just by the FBI every citizen was cooperating, searching for every image, video that could point them to the right direction.
And it was like that we found two young men, one Yassine Zaimi was wearing an all black sports wear, a white baseball cap and a backpack, he was stating next to other guy identified as Salah Barhoum was wearing a blue windbreaker and a bag. Both were labeled “Beg Men” by the NY Post today.
Salah Barhoum said he saw his face in the papers and all over the internet, he was worried, couldn’t sleep and after he talked to a friend he decided the smarter thing to dowas to go talk to the police and clear his name.
After 20 minutes talking he was allowed to go home, but he is still worried, not about the cops but about people thinking he is a killer..
“I want people to know I wasn’t behind this I was just there to watch and enjoy the marathon, like everyone else,. A lot of people have bags, not just me. I thought, ‘Why me?’” Barhoum said, adding that he was carrying only gym clothes and sneakers in his bag.
“The only thing they look at is my skin color and since I’m Moroccan I’m kind of dark,” he said. “Last night I couldn’t sleep. Just thinking about the consequences. What are people going to say and what the result is going to be.”
“People are definitely going to be looking for me just to hurt me. It’s too much. It’s such a disaster. To be blamed for all that injury and death. It’s the worst,”
Moroccan native 17-year-old Eddine Barhoum was born Salaheddin barhoum aka Salah Barhoum and Sala Bassire is an track star athlete at his high school, he works at a Subway and lives in Revere, Mass.
