This guy in charge is fricking BAD ASS tonight.

timujin: ohioccwdotorg: Active shooter a <unintelligble> hospital? Just heard over one of these scanners.

Yeah, what's up with the sound like someone's holding their radio up to the emergency lights?


Welcome to digital radio.  It sucks.

NO shots fired at hospital or at children.

Everyone get back to the Armenian Church

This is at least the fourth major story I've seen that Fark got right before anyone else
I don't know who you people are, but you're everywhere
and you have scanners

They're taking down the police perimeter tape, but they're still looking for someone?
 
2013-04-19 01:33:39 AM
shots fired children church?
 
2013-04-19 01:33:41 AM
OK, upgrade that from disable and keep alive to SHOOT EVERY FARKING BULLET YOU'VE GOT INTO HIM!!!
 
2013-04-19 01:33:46 AM

timujin: Mangles vehicles all over the American Legion Highway.  Will be shut down inbound.

?


Probably from when the suspects were throwing grenades at the police.
 
2013-04-19 01:33:54 AM
THE HOSPITAL?!?!  WTF?!
 
2013-04-19 01:33:58 AM
CNN said thin darker skinned guy was stripped naked...Kevin Garnett?

Ah, there's that armored vehicle.  SWAT with upgrades

That's probably the bystander they cornered for 15 minutes while letting the perp get away.
 
2013-04-19 01:34:22 AM
What's this church they keep talking about on the scanner?

Sorry, tell her I'm not the bad guy.

Fark is absolutely the best place to make sure you're getting the right news. This is the third story for me just this week.

ohioccwdotorg: Active shooter a <unintelligble> hospital?  Just heard over one of these scanners.


yeah i heard that. Rough week to be a cop in ... well, pretty much anywhere, but Boston, yeesh.

Your mom su... wait, sorry, slipped back into Fark for a second there.

Anyway, sounds like they've got a whole lotta nothin' right now.

Jesus.  F*ck.

mikaloyd: Boston is a crazy damned place


At least there's enough law presence up there at this time to take on a small army. FBI, Homeland Security, Secret Service, BPD, MITPD, etc... Hell, the CIA is probably lurking around up there somewhere right now as well.  Seems they've got it covered.
 
2013-04-19 01:35:03 AM
"The helicopter is still in the air overhead.  It did not spontaneously disappear from the location or crash in a blaze of glory."
 
2013-04-19 01:35:07 AM
this is all a clever ruse to get the bombing suspects out of the area.

all flights out of the US should be locked down.
 
2013-04-19 01:35:08 AM
OH shiat.

Andrew Kaczynski @BuzzFeedAndrew
RT @AnandWrites @CNN's Gabe Ramirez reporting that police saying at least one of the suspects matches description of#BostonMarathon suspect

Of course, it's CNN so take it with a very huge grain of salt.
 
2013-04-19 01:35:10 AM
Childrens hospital locked down.
 
2013-04-19 01:35:11 AM
Hospital still on lockdown
 
2013-04-19 01:35:20 AM
kids on lock down
 
2013-04-19 01:35:20 AM
This fu(king week, seriously...
 
2013-04-19 01:35:22 AM
I wonder if anyone is checking MIT campus for planted explosives yet. There could already be some there if that's what was going on.
 
2013-04-19 01:35:30 AM
Large group fighting?

Children's hospital is still in lockdown.

Does it sound like they're trying to figure out who put in the shot's fired call?
 
2013-04-19 01:35:32 AM
What's going on? Oh God, I can't feel my face.

Very classy move. I'm hoping we are rewarded with NOTHING HAPPENING FOR THE REST OF THE YEAR. I'd be quite pleased if the world got quiet.

I thought the bystander was white with blond hair in pajamas...
Actually I guess you could call those pajamas

Oh, I'm sure there are a dozen drones lurking in the dark up there.

King Something: naughtyrev: NewportBarGuy: mrshowrules: somedude210: mrshowrules: someone on Fark was guessing MIT students as the bombing suspects in the FBI suspect thread earlier this evening.

well you'd need some decent engineering knowhow to pull that off (news report earlier said that the circuit board was rewired from an RC car circuit board)

I think that was what the speculation was related to.

I've built better bombs with CO2 cartridges, black powder, and cannon fuse.

MIT? Come on. If they got in there, they are way more sophisticated than this.

MIT might mean smart, but it doesn't have to mean tech savvy.

Really.

Students of the Massachusetts Institute of TECHNOLOGY are not necessarily tech-savvy.


Not all of them are engineering students. Some of them are physics and math students. And my grandpa taught economics there.
 
2013-04-19 01:36:09 AM
WTF, Boston. What is happening with you?
 
2013-04-19 01:36:14 AM
Officer on gurney
 
2013-04-19 01:36:25 AM
With all the cops busy with this, now would be a good time for Ben Afflek and his gang to hit a bank.
 
2013-04-19 01:36:28 AM
Another injured officer?

Yeah another injured officer being taken to the hospital

HOLY shiat was that an explosion again?
 
2013-04-19 01:36:30 AM

balki1867: What's this church they keep talking about on the scanner?



I think it's being used as a command center.
 
2013-04-19 01:36:31 AM
Or, zedster could gift me a free month of TotalFark to start me off,,
Thanks zedster !!!

now back to Boston
 
2013-04-19 01:36:36 AM
HERE IS THE LINK AGAIN IF ANYONE WANTS TO LISTEN IN ON THE SCANNER
 
2013-04-19 01:36:39 AM
If these aren't the bombers they're certainly being provided a lot of cover atm
 
2013-04-19 01:36:40 AM
MSNBC has picked up local NBC affiliate coverage
 
2013-04-19 01:36:42 AM
What is it with all these civilian people down there. Who in their right mind goes "hey there's shooting and grenades! I want to go to there!"
 
2013-04-19 01:36:46 AM
we're establishing a media team?  really?

and they're tracking phones? (female dispatcher's voice)
 
2013-04-19 01:36:49 AM
Odd to csee the CNN reporting then hear on the scanner about getting the damn media back to establish a better perimeter.
 
2013-04-19 01:36:52 AM
Two suspects in custody!

My husband just pointed out that the third week of April is historically bad. Virginia tech shooting, columbine, this nonsense, Oklahoma city bombing... here in AL we had tornadoes. Lots and lots of tornadoes.
