Debunked: Boston Marathon Bombing: James Costello Ripped Clothes

I saw a man at the Marathon with his shirt cut diagonally on the front. Was a very fine cut, for lack of a better term. Didn't notice any bleeding at all and I think I would have; he was wearing a light blue shirt.
Yes, that same man was spotted having his wardrobe cut up with a razor knife to make it look more bomb like...

7:45 - 8:10 of this video shows the man your talking about getting his clothes cut up.

Now you're just making things up. An overhead shot of nothing.
 
When I blew my MCL 8 years ago, I could walk pain free most of that afternoon, mostly running on adrenaline, in my opinion. Pain set in that evening, and I was unable to walk or even put weight on my leg that night and the following days.

Nope. It was a different guy. You are wrong, but nice try!

This is the man that had his clothing shredded by the cop in said video. This is the one you are talking about. Ive studied over 1000 seperate images of Boston bombing and this is the only light blue shirt man with vertical cuts in his shirt.

Or maybe that person he saw didn't have their picture taken that shows the ripped shirt. Or you haven't looked at enough pictures.

You've studied photos. I was there. Your arrogance is beyond words.

The man I'm talking about is not the man you have posted a picture of. He was an older man with hair and only had the one shirt laceration running diagonally down the front of his shirt. His pants were fine and not cut up like the man in the picture you provided.

Ripping clothes are used by paramedics at almost any procedure at trauma victims. Like: "let me get rid of this clothes to see the real damage". It happens even in fiction shows like ER and others.

What I see happening to this victim is:
- bomb explodes and the guy falls
- paramedic thorns clothes apart and sees that the wounds are not that bad, "only" burned skin.
- paramedic says to the guy to walk to the ambulances because there are other victims in much worse conditions.
- lucky photographer shots a premium picture
- internet "detectives" cry: how can the bomb destroy his clothes, but not harm him? he's an actor!
- guy has to endure months of rehabilitation, no rights to his privacy (I'm sure he didn't sign anything about allowing his image to be exposed) and years to come of harassment

As Mick destroyed my claim that a paramedic or cop ripped Costello's clothes ;) , here are some videos of explosions doing "funny" things to clothes:

1) Manhole explodes and "apparently" only the first layer of clothes is ripped:

2) Guy slash truck tire and it explodes - his shirt is thorn apart
.

Another video shows the aftermath of a bomb explosion. After the explosion people are at first in shock or running, than start moving, raising hands to call for help, etc. The scene is very similar to Boston.
This one I'm using only to illustrate how the aftermath of Boston is expected (people in shock and running, raising hands, sometimes little blood, etc)
