O'Reilly: Boston Bombing Arrests Cast Suspicion on UMass

The Factor host called for a state investigation of welfare and university precincts.

Today, three new suspects were arrested in connection to the Boston bombing. Two students from Kazakhstan are friends of bombing suspect Dzhokhar Tsarnaev. They allegedly threw out Tsarnaev’s backpack filled with fireworks and his laptop.

“There is obviously a problem at the University of Massachusetts,” Bill O’Reilly said in his Talking Points Memo. “What kind of students are they accepting anyway? Four bad seeds on campus, how many more?”

Massachusetts attracts students from all over the world. “That used to be a strength, […] but now there’s suspicion, especially on the Muslim students,” the Factor host said.

The Tsarnaev family reportedly received $100,000 in taxpayer-funded benefits. O’Reilly said colleges are responsible for the students they accept and states are responsible for the people they give benefits to. He called for a state investigation into what is happening in the welfare and university precincts.
