LikeALeafOnTheWind: scanner feed is pretty riveting.


Yeah, can't turn it off.

shower_in_my_socks: If you aren't listening to the live feed of local Boston news, turn it the eff on:  http://livewire.wcvb.com/Event/117th_Running_of_Boston_Marathon

And where the fark are the cable news networks?


To be fair, it's 1am
 
2013-04-19 01:10:08 AM
One in custody, one down on the ground at gunpoint.
 
2013-04-19 01:10:09 AM
One in custody
One on ground but not in custody yet (possibly IED related)

Local news feed w/ 2 reporters at the scene.

Suspect in custody on route to Beth Israel!
 
2013-04-19 01:10:15 AM
Hmm, so this is pretty much done, just disable the bombs.  Suspects are held.
 
2013-04-19 01:10:18 AM
Both in custody!
 
2013-04-19 01:10:21 AM
One in custody, one at gunpoint.
 
2013-04-19 01:10:22 AM
One in custody en route to hospital and another on the ground at gunpoint... If I heard correctly
 
2013-04-19 01:10:22 AM
Scanner down for everyone else?
 
2013-04-19 01:10:30 AM
And now my radio had gone completely silent.

tinyarena: GAT_00: This has got to be related to the marathon bombing.

Yah think?


Maybe they could be stopped by a good guy with a bomb. Just sayin'.
 
2013-04-19 01:10:40 AM

styckx: 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?


This.  I'm guessing most 7-11 robberies don't have IEDs prepared as counter-measures.
 
2013-04-19 01:10:41 AM
One in custody and one down on ground not in custody yet.
 
2013-04-19 01:10:41 AM
Watertown is not answering their phones right now. WTF

Bad Guy #1: Shot multiple times, laying on the ground while they bring in a bomb robot to get to him.

Bad Guy #2: Still fleeing in a vehicle (I think)

"IED" left on street somewhere along the way.
 
2013-04-19 01:10:53 AM
i honestly hope these are the marathon bombers, and they have them caught.
 
2013-04-19 01:11:01 AM
Am I right in hearing they have both suspects, one on the ground in custody, one not in custody?
 
2013-04-19 01:11:03 AM
One of the suspects down on the ground at gunpoint.  Not in custody.

They're keeping rifles aimed at him from the perimeter.  It's likely he'll bleed out before the area can be secured.
 
2013-04-19 01:11:15 AM
switch to Channel One?  aawwwww

So it's not 24 hour news, it's like 16 hour news?
 
2013-04-19 01:11:21 AM

They're switching to Tac channels sounds like. May not want everyone listening to their chatter.

GAT_00: ShawnDoc: GAT_00: Cell phones don't work that way!

GSM phones are known to cause interference/noise on computer speakers,   May be they're worried its enough interference to trigger the explosive.

If they're worried that phones will set them off, people in the houses filming the bomb in the street will set it off just as easily, if it actually worked that way.


I think they're worried more about police who may be close to the explosives, not people several meters away in their homes.  But yes, probably just an overreaction.
 
2013-04-19 01:11:28 AM
Scanner seems to be working... everybody just stopped talking for a while it seems.
 
2013-04-19 01:11:31 AM
Broadcastify straight up SUCKS!
 
2013-04-19 01:11:36 AM
When was a second suspect reported to be in custody? The scanner feed reports that an SUV was found, but I have not yet heard anyone report whether anyone was found inside; an officer was preparing to investigate.
 
2013-04-19 01:11:38 AM
The perimeter and fleeing suspect happen to be in the exact same neighborhood where the 8 year old kid was killed


fark these guys forever.
 
2013-04-19 01:11:40 AM
Missing officer located.

/I haz a happy
 
2013-04-19 01:11:56 AM
The video feed is saying 1 suspect still at large
 
2013-04-19 01:12:07 AM
One suspect being transported to Beth Israel Deaconess, other suspect apparently down at gunpoint?
 
2013-04-19 01:12:11 AM

GAT_00: Hmm, so this is pretty much done, just disable the bombs.  Suspects are held.


One suspect is at large. He took off in an SUV while shooting out the window.

contrapunctus: One of the suspects down on the ground at gunpoint.  Not in custody.

Ah...ok... hard to update and listen at times.
 
2013-04-19 01:12:36 AM

contrapunctus: Scanner says "blonde male"....

I don't *think* these are the marathon suspects.


Perhaps he bleached his hair today after the FBI showed his pics to all of America?

I think this is a perfect example of "Better safe than sorry."
 
2013-04-19 01:12:50 AM
If they're the bombers, and they're taken to the same hospital where their victims and victims' family members are... I DON'T WANT TO BE THERE RIGHT NOW.
 
2013-04-19 01:12:53 AM
All chevrons are locked. Stargate is open.

I've got it up, now, thanks...

As someone who has lived through one school shooting (I wasn't there, left an hour before, same building, still the scariest day of my life) I am really not amused right now.
 
2013-04-19 01:13:10 AM
IEDs, grenades, automatic rifles...


They have to be the guys behind the marathon.
 
2013-04-19 01:13:24 AM

TuteTibiImperes: The video feed is saying 1 suspect still at large


That's unclear.  It sounds like he's pinned and capable of taking action, yet not in custody.  So, kind of yes and no?  Or that may be just not understanding the situation correctly.
 
2013-04-19 01:13:28 AM
Scanner:  One in custody, the other being held at gunpoint
 
2013-04-19 01:13:29 AM
And then some sort of attempted rape?
 
2013-04-19 01:13:39 AM
I still can't tell if both are in custody or if one is still loose.

You wouldn't be worried about all phones.

You would be worried about one phone wired to detonate a bomb when it receives a call or text.

If they shut off cell service that would be prevented.
