IED... these are DEFINITELY our bombers.  Shoot to disable but keep them alive.
 
2013-04-19 01:02:37 AM
Is the guy escaped in the car? Is he in the police vehicle?
 
2013-04-19 01:02:46 AM
IED???? HOLY shiat
 
2013-04-19 01:02:48 AM
plainclothed officers ordered away to avoid confusion.
 
2013-04-19 01:03:03 AM
What the fark is the world coming to?
 
2013-04-19 01:03:03 AM
Yeah Boston cops are steely cold.  Very calm on the radio.
 
2013-04-19 01:03:04 AM

farkingismybusiness: I hope they catch them alive. I really want to know their motives.


When you kill a cop, your odds of surviving a subsequent encounter drop pretty dramatically.

It's the Northeast batshiat crazy Ivy League Political Correctness... I blame Brooks Brothers.

It's the politically correct education that leads one to violence.

We need universal background checks on pressure cookers and ball bearings.

/Too Soon

Maybe the FBI photos today flushed them out. Somebody had to know who they were if they were students at MIT. That's if it's related to the bombing which seems likely.

100 Watt Walrus: That dispatcher is doing a fantastic job of keeping her shiat together. Even when saying "Retreat. Retreat. Retreat," she sounds calm and collected.


You get that way.
 
2013-04-19 01:03:17 AM
Does this IED look even passingly similar to what was used in the Boston Marathon bombing?
 
2013-04-19 01:03:25 AM

Omahawg: sad. I spent a week at MIT once upon a time. the sexual tension in nerd central would blow up a fertilizer plant in texas.


Too soon.
 
2013-04-19 01:03:28 AM
Wounded suspect at gunpoint.

/they're going to let him bleed out
 
2013-04-19 01:03:37 AM
Bomb Squad.
 
2013-04-19 01:03:40 AM

TuteTibiImperes: I may have missed something - is the guy that stole the SUV the same guy that stole the Mercedes?  Did he switch cars?  Is this the same guy who is believed to be the MIT shooter, or are there different things all happening at once?


2 people stole the SUV.  Sounds like they may have split up.  The SUV has now been found.
 
2013-04-19 01:03:43 AM

The AlbinoSaxon: Holy sh*t. This is unreal. Any major news networks carrying a live feed?


No.

The "Breaking News" on CNN is Anderson Cooper, who finally made it to Waco where the Breaking Story is that the fertilizer plant is still volatile.  wtf
 
2013-04-19 01:03:44 AM
Dammit, need to expand perimeter, I hope he isn't breaking loose.

I hear the dogs.
 
2013-04-19 01:03:47 AM
Came here to post that I heard that there were grenades going off, I see that the news has preceded me.

Whiskey. Tango. Foxtrot.
 
2013-04-19 01:03:49 AM
Holy farking shiat.
 
2013-04-19 01:03:50 AM
Expanding 3 blocks perimeter from 98 Spruce... they're trying to box him in.
 
2013-04-19 01:03:53 AM

impaler: MaliFinn: PrimeLord: MaliFinn: how is this not being covered on any cable news channel?

Very much this!

If this week is proving anything to me, it is that television news is dead.

They're only interested in fake news.

MaliFinn: how is this not being covered on any cable news channel?


If this were the sort of situation that required a lot of talking heads to fill up airtime with inane speculation, they would be all over it. Dealing with this would require some actual, real-time reporting, so they're saying "fark it."
 
2013-04-19 01:04:16 AM

The AlbinoSaxon: Holy sh*t. This is unreal. Any major news networks carrying a live feed?


Not yet. They're covering the West TX fertilizer plant again.
 
2013-04-19 01:04:20 AM
Stay safe, Boston farkers!
 
2013-04-19 01:04:26 AM
So one is definitely in custody but alive; other is on the run.
 
2013-04-19 01:04:27 AM
EOD call
 
2013-04-19 01:04:29 AM

Fark It: Wounded suspect at gunpoint.

/they're going to let him bleed out


They're saying the suspect who is down has been shot "multiple times."

TeddyRooseveltsMustache: They seem to be looking for a blonde guy with pajamas....

2013-04-19 01:05:03 AM
Officer inquires about cell phones exploding devices... telling officers to turn them off.
 
2013-04-19 01:05:04 AM
2nd suspect "prone down", waiting "for robot".
 
2013-04-19 01:05:07 AM
Worrying about whether their cell phones could detonate the device.
 
2013-04-19 01:05:10 AM

TeddyRooseveltsMustache: There's a shooting happening in Watertown right now.


Friend of mine is in the area, she just posted this on FB: pic.twitter.com/XLxhZQ7nse

Screw this week. I'm hiding under the covers for the foreseeable future.
 
2013-04-19 01:05:11 AM

bluorangefyre: IED... these are DEFINITELY our bombers.  Shoot to disable but keep them alive.


Possibly. But the other possibility is that the intense heat from the FBI et al is flushing other wackos.

But hopefully it's the marathon bomber dudes.
 
2013-04-19 01:05:13 AM
Power down all cell phones.

You guys HAVE to listen to this if you're not already ... this is Grand Theft Auto in real life ... Farking unreal ...
 
2013-04-19 01:05:16 AM
Power down all cellphones, for fear of explosion. Joy.
 
2013-04-19 01:05:17 AM
they were dropping IEDs during a car chase???  Body armor???
 
2013-04-19 01:05:22 AM
What in the blue hell is going on?
 
2013-04-19 01:05:24 AM
Turn off all cell phones
 
2013-04-19 01:05:25 AM
Cell phones don't work that way!

Bleach is cheap.
 
2013-04-19 01:05:32 AM
Multiple locations of devices. EOD trying to figure out where they are.
 
2013-04-19 01:05:33 AM
I would be amazed if this wasn't connected tot he marathon bombing.. How many shootings, car jackings, and IEDs are involved in Boston in a year?
