I just wish the woman in the next space over would stop calling everyone she knows to ask "did you here what's going on...?" and blabbing into the phone for 10 minutes.

This is the true tragedy.

Why would anybody hold someone hostage in Pittsburgh if it meant they had to stay in Pittsburgh themselves?

The Pirates slipping below .500 has finally broken someone.

A friend of mine who went to Point Park University -- he graduated in 1996 and hasn't lived in Pittsburgh since 1998 -- is on social media right now pulling a "I used to drive by that building. Man, there but for the grace of God. I gotta get home and hug my daughter" line of asspipery.

he's some disgruntled dude with a military/criminal background who ran into Gateway Center with a gun and took some guy hostage, and who is updating his Facebook through the whole thing, apparently.

2012-09-21 12:43:08 PM
I've got to say it's interesting, but it's a terrifying precedent. I mean, when people create hostage situations like this, they want to be heard. Social media essentially gives you a megaphone. Wonder if we'll see any copycats.

Actually, I wouldn't be surprised if this leads to a system where Facebook & co., at the request of law enforcement, can force someone's profile to be friends-only, so that they can gather info on the circumstances than lead to it, while still taking away their soapbox.

Glenn Beck, he has been quite lately.


Well, to be fair, it's Obama's fault the hostage wasn't carrying a gun to protect himself. As for the gunman - he's a veteran, and who's the Commander-in-Chief? Who was responsible for appointing the Secretary of Energy, who is responsible for managing the Department of Energy, which is responsible for the oversight of Three Mile Island, which nearly destroyed Pittsburgh yesterday, causing this poor man to crack?

Mark my words, NBC will be blaming Obama for this before the day is over.

My grandfather grew up in Pittsburgh before going into the CCC and eventually moving to Detroit in the 40's. Man, I need to go back to Michigan and visit his grave, this has shaken me up a bit on a personal level.

This guy is from McKeesport. I am in McKeesport right now. I am going to go home and hug my dog. Then drink a beer. Maybe watch the Succos lose again.

SwiftFox: Why would anybody hold someone hostage in Pittsburgh if it meant they had to stay in Pittsburgh themselves?


Outsourcing of hostage-keeping operations may be an economical solution that does away with this problem.

Listening to the scanner app on my phone. Outside of the obvious situation, there's a report of a white male, approximately 50 years of age, that is intoxicated and just urinated on East Carson Street in the Southside. He is now laying on the sidewalk. Any locals want to bet that this is near Jack's?

If the scanner also said "suspect's pockets are filled with pickled eggs" then it's a stone-cold lock.

I grew up in New Jersey, which is really close to Pennsylvania, although not the part of Pennsylvania where Pittsburgh is. And I drove through Pittsburgh once, but not in the car I have now, but I'm still gonna go home and hug that car 'cause it's all I have.

According to Channel 4, dude carjacked someone last summer then got into a police chase, and plead guilty in "veterans' court" to robbery, inflicting bodily injury, receiving stolen property and fleeing or attempting to elude police. He's already served his time.

I'm all for giving consideration to veterans, but I can't help but think a civilian would have years or decades left on his sentence for the same crime instead of being free to pull this.

I was just down that way and the cops are still blocking things off & people are still out of their buildings.

I want to call Peter Jennings and tell him, "I sees the OJ and he looks scared. And I'd be scared too cuz there are cops all deep in dis."

Well this has been extremely useful. Several unwatchable videos and a Fark comments thread with a large number of deleted posts and no actual information. As far as I can tell, it was actually me and I'm currently in the throes of solipsistic denial. Yay internet!

/That's what I get for opening something with the "news" tag. Never again.
 
2012-09-21 04:21:25 PM
All relevant posts may have been deleted, but the "hitting close to home" posts are actually a riot. :-)

Ill try to post an update if the cops question my friend regarding her inflammatory posts on the gunman's page.
