Grand_Moff_Joseph: Just now on Twitter:

@WesleyLowery Suspicious package found at Mass Ave and Pleasant.


Oh god damnit.

i.imgur.com  I'm going to throw this up again, but take it with a grain of salt - left hand side, white dude, backwards white hat, grey hoodie, black jacket. He just looks a little small compared to other people and he looked huge in the FBI pictures. This comes from reddit, but it's pretty clear.

For those that may be interested.

Also, two armed Middle Eastern men with a carjacking.


Maybe the bomb suspects freaked out with their faces on the news or maybe someone recognized them.

I hope so.

Possible bombing suspects?


Not enough details to know yet, but heck of a coincidence considering the photos of the bombing suspects.

Update:  One of the subjects paid cash for gas, filled up the SUV (this is when the driver escaped), and headed towards Harvard Square.  They're checking the gas station to see if they have video of the two.

somedude210: huh, I never realized that MIT (as well as most colleges in MA) have their own police force with regular police training. I always thought they were state-ies


Virginia Tech in Blacksburg, VA is the same way. The campus police force used to be the only game in town, accredited by the state and everything. They rolled around in squad cars that said "Virginia Tech Campus Police" and everything. Since the shooting there a few years back they now have two separate forces, one for the town and one for the campus, but both are still state accredited. I've been stopped quite a few times by those campus cops they have no mercy

That's not a pleasant mass. That's not pleasant at all...
 
2013-04-19 12:33:09 AM  
This is getting to be one hell of a week. Wow.

Here's hoping this one has minimal effect.
 
2013-04-19 12:33:51 AM  
It could also be that someone got carjacked and thought, "Oh yeah, farker? See if you get away with it NOW," then described them in just the right way to raise the most law enforcement interest.
 
2013-04-19 12:33:54 AM  
The officer who was shot is dead. Cops are scrambling all over the city now.
 
2013-04-19 12:34:35 AM  
OR not.

Grand_Moff_Joseph: TPM reporting per local sources: Officer has died


Yeah, just saw it on the news. Officer was reported DOA at Mass General. Really farked up. And now we have two major incidents to deal with.

/ thoughts and prayers to the officer's family

It seems like a big issue is no one knows if the marathon bombers, MIT shooter, and now hijackers are in any way related or if Boaton is just in the middle of a bizarre crime spree right now.

NewportBarGuy: mrshowrules: somedude210: mrshowrules: someone on Fark was guessing MIT students as the bombing suspects in the FBI suspect thread earlier this evening.

well you'd need some decent engineering knowhow to pull that off (news report earlier said that the circuit board was rewired from an RC car circuit board)

I think that was what the speculation was related to.

I've built better bombs with CO2 cartridges, black powder, and cannon fuse.

MIT? Come on. If they got in there, they are way more sophisticated than this.


EXACTLY-- smart enough to 'dumb down' their bombs to throw off the scent.....
/any point is valid on the internet
 
2013-04-19 12:35:21 AM  
Was on the phone, update from the scanner.  Only one person has a firearm.  Sounds like the police are trying to box them in.  Mentioned not to turn on lights/siren, so they could box them in somewhere.
 
2013-04-19 12:35:22 AM  
I actually said out loud "Oh for f*ck's sake."

Because, seriously, for f*ck's sake.

As I said in another thread.  If they're caught in Boston.  They'll stay in Boston.

If it's like everything else this week, it's unrelated. Just more carnage and chaos to tick off in the box of how this week has been the worst.
