I sort of figured a list of possible suspects with grainy pictures posted on those sites would be a joke (not saying the most tasteful of jokes, but this is 4chan and reddit) "zomg everybody panic, check out all these dark-skinned men wearing backpacks! They are all so suspicious!" When you can't trust actual news media to report true updates vs any most likely made-up bits of anonymous information from nameless sources in undisclosed locations, who is going to reddit and 4chan for reliable news?

The expression "don't believe everything you read" is old as shit for a reason. Why would you be more likely to believe something just because it's been printed?

So the two in the pictures I posted that were described by CNN and other news outlets last night?

The NY Post decided to run with it and post it on the front cover.

And the kid in the blue jacket is a high school track athlete.

So I feel like a douche. Those at the Post must feel awful... Ha, I kid. They're probably just fine.

Bush Gore election night is still the peek of news station idiocy.

when one looks at the video, suspect 2 has a very distinguishable walk and body physique, anyone that knows him will recognize him

Suspect 2 dresses exactly like I do, minus the hat. Which is to say, just like every college guy.
