/or is this part 2 to the boston bombing story?

I would be farking farking, but my fiance left me for a co-worker after I broke up with her because she gave my friend a blowjob.


Sounds like you found out she was a slut before she got half your stuff.

Lost. Probably a safety precaution at this point.

How many mass murders/attempted mass murders occur in three day spans in the same city?

Little known fact, most known terrorists are engineers.

To be known, means you were usually successful. Engineers can build bombs, art majors can't. Still want to push STEM degrees?
 
2013-04-19 12:42:32 AM
Oh, for Christ's sake.  It's like the whole country is flipping out.  I just hope this doesn't get any worse.

Feed is back.  Apparently the MIT shooter may be headed to NY.

Heading to NYC? How can they tell? Isn't it more like "heading south on 95?"

Little known fact:  the best homebrewers that turn pro that I've run into are engineers, or plumbers (brewing is 90% janitorial).

jaytkay: earthwirm: Occam's razor seems to dictate at this point all related.

Cuz in an area with 5 million people, they've never had three crimes occur in a three day span


Considering the robbery was committed by a dark skinned white male who then took the MIT Officers revolver, and then a bit later an SUV is carjacked in the same Area, the victim describes the carjackers as two middle eastern men, one with a gun. The carjacker victim escaped at a gas station.

Robert1966: ladyfortuna: TuteTibiImperes: 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

It's pretty common with most medium to larger schools.  When you have 15K - 30K+ students, professors, support staff, etc, a school basically becomes its own small city.

In NY, SUNY police hold the equivalent rank & powers of state troopers (so do state park police). Don't know how it works in other states, but that discovery was a bit sobering.

/don't speed on campus

It probably makes a difference that MIT is not a state school, unlike, say, Stony Brook.


Could be that it is different for private schools. I was at BU for my masters and always saw BUPD on campus. It seemed like they were first responders and Boston PD had back-up and ultimate jurisdiction in the end, but that could have been my misconception.

/Always something going on on an urban campus the size of BU.
//We not only had our own PD, we had our own post office!
///I love Boston, but I'm glad I'm not in school there at the moment.

Not that I disagree with that suggestion, but you need to stop the car to get the shooter.

They don't have visual on the stolen car, I believe the officer said the victim of the carjacking said they might have been heading to NY.

I hope they catch him alive, if for no other reason than to find out if there is a connection to the bombing from earlier.  Better to close both cases if possible, and get him to flip on any accomplices if he was involved in the bombings.
 
2013-04-19 12:45:37 AM
I'm normally against save scumming, but I think we should reload this past weekend's save point. Anyone else up for it?

naughtyrev: He just looks a little small compared to other people


If you were an art major, you would have learned how perspective works. (The bald guy in the suit is standing on a step to see stuff).

Yet people still want to push STEM degrees.
 
2013-04-19 12:45:41 AM
If it is the bombers I hope they get them alive.

No kidding. It's been a long time since I can remember seeing so many news flash tags. And even then, the news flashes are ACTUALLY worthy of the tag too.

So are carjack and MIT shooting related? My impression is no.

There's a shooting happening in Watertown right now.
 
2013-04-19 12:47:35 AM

King Something: mrshowrules: Why is the FBI there?

Shooting at a college barely a swallow's flight away from a bombing that killed 3 and injured over 150, and just three days after said bombing. Why WOULDN'T the FBI be there?

NewportBarGuy: King Something: Students of the Massachusetts Institute of TECHNOLOGY are not necessarily tech-savvy.

To be fair, they do court the other sciences. I'm just very doubtful they are students. And, crime does happen. Could they have caught them trying to hit the campus, maybe. I'll just go with crazy guy doing crazy things. Like every other day ending in y.

Point taken, but if the crazy guy doing crazy things is an MIT student, chances are he is a bit more tech-savvy than your average AOL user.


Would that be a European or African swallow?
