Here’s the caption:

Whoa! Government is slipping up! This lady supposedly died in the elementary school shooting & apparently died again in the bombing at Boston. They have to be smarter than this, right? Nina Nieves Sosa

Yes, the government is smarter than this. You’re not.
Here’s the photo of one of the women killed in the bombing:

The other two killed were an eight-year-old boy and a Chinese national who graduated from Boston University, neither of whom is pictured above in the first photo.
Did you 33,000+ people even check this out at all? Of course, if they did, it’s all a mainstream media/government conspiracy, right? If you try to even say anything to these people, you’re just on their side, you just see what they see — which is nothing but bullshit as far as the eye can see.
You people got duped by either photoshop, or a news agency making a goddamn mistake by putting the wrong photo on-screen. Because that happens.
Assholes. Especially this guy that said “She deserved to die twice.”
