First mullets and now MIT. This is not going to help Camaro sales.
 
2013-04-19 01:26:28 AM  

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

Hearing the cops outside yelling at him to take his underwear off


What feed is that on?  I'm listening to the scanner on  http://tunein.com/radio/Boston-Police-Fire-and-EMS-Scanner-s146109/
 
2013-04-19 01:26:29 AM  

GAT_00: So pinned down guy may be an innocent bystander, and they let someone get away?  Is that what they're realizing 15 minutes later?


Christ, you're an asshole. See ya.

It's a bad day to be a random dude wandering the streets in Boston tonight


They have two parameters set up. They'll go house-to-house to find the guy.
 
2013-04-19 01:26:37 AM  
Did they shoot a bystander or did he just lay down and play dead.
 
2013-04-19 01:26:38 AM

Gyrfalcon: GAT_00: 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.

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.


They're currently speculating if they let a suspect get away and instead have been keeping a witness pinned down.  Clearly, this has not been handled correctly.

This is exactly what I mean, no clear organization let the net collapse.
 
2013-04-19 01:26:43 AM  
Christ, if they did let the second suspect get away and just nabbed some poor random bastard, I *really* hope the first one survives. Otherwise, we may not get ahold of his accomplice until there's another farking rampage.
 
2013-04-19 01:26:49 AM  
Holy shiat there he is!
 
2013-04-19 01:26:53 AM  
They even took an hostage earlier

For fark's sake this is insane
 
2013-04-19 01:26:59 AM  
WHITE GUY
 
2013-04-19 01:26:59 AM  
Just saw the suspect on the ground!
 
2013-04-19 01:27:08 AM  
Yeah sounds like that 2nd guy they had prone might have been someone in the wrong place at the wrong time.  State police saying might still be looking for 2nd suspect.
 
2013-04-19 01:27:12 AM  
Oh gawd, I hope they aren't wrong:

from the twitter: 2nd suspect just put into a cruiser, stripped naked

But it sounds like they aren't sure.

DAMMIT, don't show a downed officer CNN
 
2013-04-19 01:27:15 AM  
"We potentially still have a second suspect out there" just went out over the scanner.
 
2013-04-19 01:27:17 AM  
@brianjdamico: 2nd suspect just put into a cruiser, stripped naked
 
2013-04-19 01:27:19 AM  
Scanner feed just barfed out on me here
 
2013-04-19 01:27:30 AM  
Don't you people have helicopters in Boston?

Wow. You've been watching way too many movies and TV shows.
 
2013-04-19 01:28:00 AM  

Tatsuma: 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'


Its the only thing that makes sense. There's no way a copycat could put together this kind of siege this quickly. This was well planned.
 
2013-04-19 01:28:06 AM  
CROSS REFERENCE THAT SUSPECT WITH THE PHOTOS NOW!!!
 
2013-04-19 01:28:13 AM

Source??  Holy fark


twitter handle: @akitz
He lives across the street and has tweeted photos of the crashed SUV
 
2013-04-19 01:28:22 AM  
I'm just now realizing that I've had to pee for like the past 40 minutes.
 
2013-04-19 01:28:24 AM  

Cuthbert Allgood: Don't you people have helicopters in Boston?


Yes, we do.

For the love of God, please let them zoom in on the suspect and let her be the girl from that Hautelook commercial.
 
2013-04-19 01:28:31 AM  

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

I hope they get them alive


I don't really care either way, but if this is them I'd like to know their motive.
 
2013-04-19 01:28:33 AM  
EVERYONE TURN ON CNN RIGHT NOW. MAN SPRAWLED ON STREET
 
2013-04-19 01:28:33 AM  

Tatsuma: They even took an hostage earlier

That was unrelated, it's been reported in the thread already, Keep up!
 
2013-04-19 01:28:37 AM  
Yeh, white guy laying in the road wearing what looks like jogging suit, you know, those running pants with the stripes down the side and stuff... doesn't look to be injured, just prone, with cops yelling and pointing guns at him from a distance
 
2013-04-19 01:28:42 AM  
Neighbor "hearing something in her back yard"... wonder what that means.
 
2013-04-19 01:28:44 AM  
Lady reporting someone hiding in her back yard.
 
2013-04-19 01:28:46 AM  
Anybody else lose their scanner feed?
 
2013-04-19 01:28:49 AM  
Neighbor reporting suspicious sound in backyard. Perp hiding? Dexter street.
 
2013-04-19 01:28:55 AM  
Holy shiat! So is this related to the MIT murder? The talking heads implied that they might be separate.

Btw +1 on fark comments for breaking it down in real time
 
2013-04-19 01:29:04 AM  
Not sure it's even the right guy. Hopefully they got one of the bastards because I want to know what happened and if it's related to Monday's bombing.
 
2013-04-19 01:29:07 AM  
Active shooter?
 
2013-04-19 01:29:09 AM  

gilgigamesh: Its the only thing that makes sense. There's no way a copycat could put together this kind of siege this quickly. This was well planned.


Yeah and apparently the second guy actually managed to evade the cops

That's farking insane.
 
2013-04-19 01:29:10 AM  
Hey guys. What's new?
 
2013-04-19 01:29:32 AM  

cameroncrazy1984: I'm just now realizing that I've had to pee for like the past 40 minutes.


I think I peed around the time they threw the grenades.

/not sure
//not checking anytime soon
 
2013-04-19 01:29:34 AM  
we all hopped the train to crazy town this week
 
2013-04-19 01:29:41 AM  
Active shooter a <unintelligble> hospital?  Just heard over one of these scanners.
 
2013-04-19 01:29:47 AM  

TeddyRooseveltsMustache: Cuthbert Allgood: Don't you people have helicopters in Boston?

Yes, we do.


No cameras in them?  Where's my "eye in the sky?"
 
2013-04-19 01:29:47 AM  
State police helicopters incoming.
 
2013-04-19 01:29:53 AM  

reklamfox: Neighbor "hearing something in her back yard"... wonder what that means.


That was preceeded by a "910" call, which I think is police code for "prowler." Could be connected or not.
 
2013-04-19 01:29:57 AM  

Fark Me To Tears: GAT_00: 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.

Wow. You've been watching way too many movies and TV shows.


Yes, it's clearly absurd of me to think that there should be organization while doing a manhunt.
 
2013-04-19 01:29:59 AM  
did I just hear active shooter at a children hospital or did i hear the scanner wrong
 
2013-04-19 01:30:05 AM  

rynthetyn: Anybody else lose their scanner feed?


Tons of chatter here

You can faintly what hes's yelling too...sounds like "fark you Tony Soprano you farked my fiancee"

Get on the scanners, but be warned, it is real and not for squeemish

Just got mine, actually.  One or more servers could have bounced, though, it went from 52K logged in to 42K and I doubt anyone just decided to drop off right now.
