cameroncrazy1984: Only 45 minutes late, CNN.


MSNBC still isn't covering it, so credit CNN for at least being first among cable news.
 
2013-04-19 01:17:52 AM
I'm not sure I can muster enough derision for cable "news" right now.

MaliFinn: ShawnDoc: What was that?  "I'm going to be quiet for 20 min, everyone be happy."

on the scanner?


Yeah.
 
2013-04-19 01:17:59 AM

cameroncrazy1984: 45 minutes late and at the wrong scene.


So they're being overcautious and still failing?

Notabunny: GAT_00: Notabunny: 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.

They were saying one suspect heading to Beth Israel, someone else pinned down, and someone escaping, but only two suspects.  So it's unclear which of those three is false.

This isn't being directed well.

I may be wrong, but I think the injured suspect held at gunpoint and the suspect being taken to the hospital are one and the same. But, yes, it's getting so that you can't tell the players w/o a program.


The last PD feed confirmed two suspects in custody, one on the ground, one at the hospital. That was per the officers on scene reporting back to the watch commander. The suspect down is the one they are waiting on the robot for.

Is CNN worth tuning in or their normal stupid?
 
2013-04-19 01:18:17 AM

Tatsuma: First officer down died at the hospital
fark.


Was not that already reported?
 
2013-04-19 01:18:19 AM
The cops might have prevented a Mumbai style attack on a major university campus. Holy shiat.
 
2013-04-19 01:18:20 AM

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


If it was it certainly wasn't from their engineering school, those bombs were so farking crude that if it wasn't for the ball bearing and nails I'd wonder if anyone would have even died.
 
2013-04-19 01:18:20 AM
They taking the guy to Beth Israel? Or is that another call?
 
2013-04-19 01:18:31 AM
I'm so glad I don't have to work tomorrow. And glad for this bottle of wine
 
2013-04-19 01:18:32 AM

Tatsuma: First officer down died at the hospital
fark.


MIT or Boston PD?

cameroncrazy1984: Bunny Deville: 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)

if you left an hour before you didn't "live through it"

You dealt with the aftermath.


They bands, I took you off ignore this last year by I can put you right back there. I lived through it because my husband was on campus. I lived through it because there were the worst fifteen minutes of my life when I didn't know whether he was dead or alive. I lived through it because for six hours I didn't know if my friends had survived. I lived through it because I couldn't go to class for weeks without news trucks and farking marching bands trying to welcome me back. But I'm not worried about that right now. I'm worried about the people that are living it RIGHT THE fark NOW.

My interpretation is one at hospital, one pinned near an IED, neither capable of any further action.

Other people going to Beth Israel, unclear.

And someone just gave 50,000 people his cell phone number.

BafflerMeal: styckx: Live CNN stream for you cable cutters:  http://www.wwhdtv.com/cnn-news-live-streaming/

That's the ABC affiliate feed.


It's CNN but they're showing the affiliate feed because they don't even have their own crew on scene..
 
2013-04-19 01:19:09 AM
If these aren't the bombers connected to Monday, we've got a bigger problem on our hands than we thought.

Thanks, bro.

I hope this is them, and that they're the only two.

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


Oh, for fark's sake

rynthetyn: Is CNN worth tuning in or their normal stupid?


CNN is airing the local Boston news feed that has been linked here, so if you want to see it on your TV...
 
2013-04-19 01:19:21 AM

cameroncrazy1984: Only 45 minutes late, CNN.


Fox didn't even deem this newsworthy until IEDs were mentioned.
 
2013-04-19 01:19:23 AM
Scanner feed working fine for me, but can't get WCVB feed to play. Anyone else having that problem?
 
2013-04-19 01:19:24 AM
A 3rd suspect in State PD custody?
 
2013-04-19 01:19:29 AM
They are saying that another is in custody and someone else is in custody as well?
 
2013-04-19 01:19:38 AM

rynthetyn: Is CNN worth tuning in or their normal stupid?


They are just repeating the channel 5 stuff a few seconds later
 
2013-04-19 01:19:42 AM
They just said on the scanner, that one of the people they aren't sure if they're a suspect or not.
 
2013-04-19 01:19:43 AM
The police are apparently looking around the neighborhood between houses, one suspect at least still at large
 
2013-04-19 01:19:46 AM
EOD to disarm a suspicious package.
 
2013-04-19 01:19:46 AM
The police are confused too.

Sounds like there is one suspect in custody and one fleeing (state police may have them?) and a second person who is not a suspect.

MIT I believe

I can't get any audio off the scanner >_<

Any alternates?

I'm getting nuthin' nowhere.

Boston PD doesn't have the first farking clue what's going on.

Remember the last time that happened? Was that Tuesday?
 
2013-04-19 01:20:35 AM
Holy shiat listening to the live local news feed and the guy who just called in (someone affiliated with the station) reported the cops are literally standing outside his home pointing guns at his house, possible suspect sighting. This is farking NUTS

It's a scanner, there's more than one crime at a time.

You shut your whore mouth. They are doing an awesome job in a combat situation. You can do better, you go there and do it.

You are listening to the scanner wrong.

2ND SUSPECT IS NOT IN CUSTODY



Officers were going toward a car but were told to walk away

Ahhh it's good to laugh again. News trucks! Marching bands! You poor thing. How's the PTSD treatment coming?

It sounds like chaos on the scanners, they just said to everyone to move to channel 1.. do we have different scanner links for their channels?
