Let's hope this suspect isn't afraid of the impending moss-covered gredunza with three handles from Boston PD.

So, @CNN is reporting a "battle of the bands" between Boston and The Police. "I always liked 'More Than A Feeling'" adds John King.

If you aren't in a Uniform, you're going to be treated as a threat. There's a huge difference between that and being arrested

1 second off from a triple simul-post!

I've been part of a quadruple simulpost. Not that big an accomplishment.

I've been lurking since 2007 and I've never seen a triple or quadruple...


Mine was in a football thread, so probably shouldn't count since every time there's a touchdown there's a pretty good chance of several people simulposting.

First second person or second second person? I'm gonna hit the "add" button and probably say goodbye to this post for a few hours...

Local news channel WCVB just interviewed somebody who claimed to be a friend of the guy who was face-down on the street. The interviewee said face-down guy just got off work and was walking home with a backpack over his shoulder when the cops ordered him to the ground.

Are the two scanner links catching the same radio channel, or different ones?  Not sure if it's worth the effort to try to load the one i'm not listening to on another device

It sounds like somebody is trying to get a vehicle through, but everything is blocked off.  The dispatchers are trying to route somebody to a "quadrant."

If you aren't in a Uniform, you're going to be treated as a threat. There's a huge difference between that and being arrested


Particularly if you aren't in uniform at almost 2 am during a crisis situation like this. Just... wow.

Arresting people with backpacks.

Guy was just blabbering nervously about his friend and probable cause and rights. My money is on his friend having weed in his backpack when taken into custody.
