What would it take?

"Officials: Man who knew Boston bombing suspect was unarmed when shot"

Just to give you a taste of the massive and elaborate lying involved, here's the original reporting:  "FBI agent fatally shoots man with suspected ties to Boston Marathon bomber: authorities" (my emphasis throughout in red):
"An FBI agent fatally shot a Florida man this morning, after questioning him about ties to Boston Marathon bomber Tamerlan Tsarnaev, authorities said.
Feds, two Massachusetts state troopers and investigators from other agencies were questioning Ibragim Todashev, 27, shortly after midnight when he suddenly pulled a knife and stabbed an FBI agent, law enforcement sources told The Post.
It wasn't immediately clear if the stabbed FBI agent was the same one who shot and killed Todashev. The wounded FBI agent was taken to the hospital and he was expected to survive his wounds, officials said."
Also!: "Source: Friend of bombing suspect attacked agent with sword":
"FOX 25's Bob Ward was told by a confidential informant that the man, who was killed while being questioned by FBI agents in Florida, was in the process of confessing to a triple murder that occurred in Waltham when he suddenly attacked an agent with a sword.

...

During the interview, investigators took notes and everything appeared to be going well. Eventually, Todashev was asked to write down, in his own handwriting and in his own words, what he had been telling authorities about his role in the murders when in the words of one source – all hell broke loose.

Todashev allegedly began writing, but then flipped a table over, knocking the Boston FBI agent into the wall hitting his head.

FOX 25's Bob Ward was told the agent looked up to see Todashev waving in his direction what was described as a Banzai ceremonial sword.

Fearing for his life, the FBI agent drew his weapon and fatally shot Todashev. The entire incident taking only seconds."

There is an attempt to make this seem less outrageous by repeating the story that Todashev was just about to sign a confession implicating himself and Tamerlan Tsarnaev in the Waltham killings:
"Todashev became violent as he was signing a written statement based on his confession to the triple murder and attacked the agent with a knife, according to the FBI."
But note:
"But sources say during questioning Tuesday night, Todashev implicated himself and Tamerlan Tsarnaev in the killings. As investigators pushed at him towards a confession, he snapped, reported Orr."
There's a big difference between the usual police haranguing towards a confession (which means no confession), and having a written confession ready for him to sign, just as there is a difference between a knife wound which sends an agent to hospital (where 'he was expected to survive his wounds'!!!), and no wound and no weapon.  The lies are simply too specific and detailed to be mistakes or slips.

"Atlantic Wire on the Murder of Ibragim Todashev"

Seven times?!! (note the headline disparages the story by attributing it up front to one of those dastardly 'Islamic groups', and the article disparages the photograph by emphasizing its source):  "Islamic group: Slain man was unarmed, shot by FBI agent 7 times":
"An Islamic group Wednesday called for a federal civil-rights investigation of last week's fatal shooting of an Orlando man by an FBI agent investigating his connection to the Boston Marathon bombing suspects.

And the Tampa director of that group said not only was 27-year-old Ibragim Todashev unarmed when he was shot by the agent May 22, he was hit seven times, including once in the head.

. . .

At a news conference Wednesday evening, Shibly showed what he said were photos of Todashev's body after the shooting. The photos were taken at an Orlando funeral home after the Orange-Osceola County Medical Examiner's office released the body to Todashev's next of kin, he said.

The photographer was Khusen Taramov — a friend of Todashev's who lives in Kissimmee — and photos show at least a dozen wounds, although some may have been exit wounds, Shibly said."

The claim that one shot was to the 'back of the head' somehow didn't make it into all of the stories.

 I'm reading a lot of the usual nonsense of the supposed mental and psychological problems of conspiracy theorists, but I would like to ask a question of the Official Story believers.  What would it take for you to entertain the notion that there might be a conspiracy here?  Is there any set of facts of official wrongdoing that might cause you to have even the slightest doubt about what you are being told by official sources?  If there is no possible set of facts which would cause you to start to have doubts, you have a serious mental and psychological problem of needing to believe what your 'betters' tell you.
