Predictions and conspiracy theories fly as people anticipate the legal process in the aftermath of the bombings – a first after so many violent events ending in the death of the perpetrators
Some predict legal process will frustrate justice (red meat for readers too)
Murdoch other paper in NYC predicts the opposite Along with the news of Bloomberg’s new attempt to lord over people’s lives. I don’t smoke anymore and wouldn’t mind if people quit/don’t start.
