netweavr: Grand_Moff_Joseph: 2nd custody is in custody.

Perp had a woman at knife point, wanted to rape her??

/What in the hell??

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


ah, good point.  I stand corrected.

Rape was a separate call.
 
2013-04-19 01:21:33 AM
The second suspect was cornered in a vehicle, police told to back off, unclear whether or not he was the one who drove off or if he has been caught

Coco LaFemme: If these aren't the bombers connected to Monday, we've got a bigger problem on our hands than we thought.


I'm pretty sure its them. This is a planned out blaze of glory exit if I ever saw one.

Yeah, they took the conversation to a different channel, that's just normal chatter

Gyrfalcon: 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.


Ok. That sounds right.
 
2013-04-19 01:21:59 AM

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


I hope they get them alive

You are listening to the scanner wrong.


yep, I've been corrected.  My apologies to all.
 
2013-04-19 01:22:11 AM

Tatsuma: TheManofPA: MIT or Boston PD?

MIT I believe


Ok. As bad as that is, it had been reported and I was hoping it was not a second officer (I know the first part sounds bad but I meant I'm happy for no more loss). I was worried that you meant the guy who yelled "they have explosions shots fired" was dead as well. I haven't heard him on the scanner and thought he may be the officer down.

"Get down there, and make sure that device functions as designed?"  wth does that mean?
 
2013-04-19 01:22:26 AM

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


Not sure it's CNN or the local station (wcvb) being broadcast over CNN. CNN started to echo the http://livewire.wcvb.com/Event/117th_Running_of_Boston_Marathon feed.
 
2013-04-19 01:22:29 AM
@brianjdamico (Twitter) is on scene . . . local amateur news/photog . . . very good source of info.

Video from the scene on channel 7.

ekdikeo4: "Get down there, and make sure that device functions as designed?"  wth does that mean?


ZOMG FALSE FLAG!!1!
 
2013-04-19 01:23:09 AM

ekdikeo4: 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?


Channel one is probably the tac channel. Probably for the mutual aid & to coordinate between MIT/BPD and to clear air for routine traffic. And also so their conversation doesn't end up on CNN and becoming wrong "news."
 
2013-04-19 01:23:11 AM
Bananas.

Arthur Jumbles: 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.

Gyrfalcon: GAT_00: Boston PD doesn't have the first farking clue what's going on.

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.


Agents shouldn't have to ask in the open what's going on while on the scene.  They could be using GPS to have a real time tracking of cars to establish a perimeter, and have a single voice updating everyone.  This is madness.
 
2013-04-19 01:23:17 AM
Christ almighty.  This is insane.
 
2013-04-19 01:23:20 AM
The police were moving in for an arrest, but they were told not to get close to the car because they feared explosives, and the calls about him being in custody were premature.
 
2013-04-19 01:23:23 AM
Please, please let this be the assholes they are looking for.
 
2013-04-19 01:23:23 AM

LAPD would have shot him up, and then tried to figure out if was the right person.

squishface: Bunny Deville: 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.

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


I don't have it. Don't claim to. I'm not an asshole, either, can you claim that much? JESUS farkING CHRIST! CAN'T YOU FIND ANYTHING MORE IMPORTANT TO TYPE ABOUT RIGHT NOW? Boston local news is saying this is the farkimg bombing suspect and you want to pick on me about SEMANTICS?
 
2013-04-19 01:23:58 AM
Still looking for one.

Not sure if that makes him a third suspect or one of the two
 
2013-04-19 01:24:01 AM
Oh good job you cuffed a witness now.

Now That's What I Call a Taco!: Fark It: "tank-like vehicle" - DHS MRAP

There was an earlier report of a carjacked Mercedes in the area. Possibly a G wagon?


No, guy on livewire link confirmed the vehicles were DHS, and heavily-armored operators were leaving them (probably FBI's HRT).  Also, DHS is the only civilian agency with MRAPs.

Drag him back to the station and throw away the farking key.  And beat him up too.

Guy in Watertown is tweeting that they are making the guy strip - he's strapped with explosives.

You must think running an emergency scene is like the movies. Usually I don't lose my temper at you, but this time, you're a f*cking idiot.

"is now reporting that they may NOT have the second suspect... he may still be out there"
 
2013-04-19 01:25:06 AM
So pinned down guy may be an innocent bystander, and they let someone get away?  Is that what they're realizing 15 minutes later?
 
2013-04-19 01:25:14 AM
Now they're saying they might not have the second suspect....

Starting to think these were the bombers trying up up the ante by attacking one of our best universities.

If so.....INSANE.

It's a bad day to be a random dude wandering the streets in Boston tonight
 
2013-04-19 01:25:58 AM
I wonder, if these guys are the bombers from Monday, they saw that they had been identified earlier and decided 'fark it, let's go out on our terms'

CNN is borrowing the video and most of the audio right now


CNN! The first in news! to rebroadcast wcvb's feed.

That's some news network you got there, Lou.

Did they just say they caught the carjacker SUV guy?
 
2013-04-19 01:26:21 AM

Giltric: Still looking for one.

Not sure if that makes him a third suspect or one of the two


The news is reporting that the police have stood down some now.  Someone taken into custody from a Camaro, but a Mercedes and a Police SUV were both in the mix previously.

Local news feed w/ 2 reporters at the scene.

/Don't let the link fool you

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.


Not amused either Bunny De.

In HS I walked into the mens room right as a an M80 went off in the toilet.  Scared the K-rap out of me and I was the first to get blamed.  I was not in on it but I knew 3 people who where suggesting it.  I also was the first to find a friend of a friend that was murdered.  Still get sick when I think about the scene and how cute she was.  Took many years to find the killer.  (I think it was about 7 or 8).
