roflmaonow: While CNN is showing the same local TV feed, I'm not following them. I'm listening to the police scanner while watching the Local TV feed.

TommyymmoT: Fecal Conservative: TommyymmoT: Fecal Conservative: Hey guys. What's new?

Surely not that outfit you're wearing.
The 1970s called, and they want their leisure suit back.

Stop making fun of my platforms.
I've always wondered if that was real, and if so, how long before the fish died.


Depends on your definition of "real"

Also WTFark is a Code Black?

Canton: netweavr: Tatsuma: So the farking 2nd suspect is still in the wind then if the cops are just arresting random people

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.


Yeah, now is a good time to not go anywhere. If you live in the area, stay in your house, and if you're not in your house, go into one and don't come out.

Nuclear strike incoming?

"THEY HAD NO PROBABLE CAUSE!"

"fark you twat, they very much did. Your convenience takes the back burner right now."
 
2013-04-19 01:51:45 AM
SUSPECT DESCRIPTION:

Clean-shaven middle eastern male, blue baseball cap with stripes/snowflake on the side.
 
2013-04-19 01:51:45 AM

earthwirm: Code Black?


Bomb threat/situation.
 
2013-04-19 01:51:49 AM

Somacandra: mikaloyd: 2nd person currently being detained

Not hearing that on the scanner.


They were showing it http://livewire.wcvb.com/Event/117th_Running_of_Boston_Marathon

Doesnt sound like he was a perp
Sounds like it was an idiot telling 1000 cops with drawn guns that he had a right to be inside their crime scene
 
2013-04-19 01:51:49 AM
Mount Auburn Code Black.

Did she just describe a middle-eastern male with a blute white cap? Seriously?
 
2013-04-19 01:51:51 AM
"Blue and white christmas cap"?  I've never seen a blue and white christmas.  Clean-shaven middle eastern male.  Not sure if they are talking about someone they've seen, someone they are hunting, or maybe the guy in the cube next to me. (I'm in Sunnyvale)

If this is a legit photo, and not shopped, that dude's wearing what appears to be a tactical military-style backpack:

Could be a bomb squad guy, or other authority.
 
2013-04-19 01:51:59 AM
What was that about middle eastern looking with a snowflake hat?
 
2013-04-19 01:52:03 AM
Code black = either bomb threat or person with weapon, can vary by facility.
 
2013-04-19 01:52:06 AM
mt auburn is in code black - bomb threat?
 
2013-04-19 01:52:15 AM
Code black = bomb threat per Wikipedia
 
2013-04-19 01:52:23 AM

Tatsuma: What the fark is code black?


Coffee break
 
2013-04-19 01:52:29 AM
Code black can be a bomb threat ...

http://en.wikipedia.org/wiki/Hospital_emergency_codes
 
2013-04-19 01:52:31 AM
So to recap it looks like we have:
1 MIT officer down (killed sadly)
2 BP officers down, 1 at least in route to BI
1 suspect in custody in route to BI
1 suspect at large
Possible IED but that may be destroyed now
 
2013-04-19 01:52:39 AM
Grey's Anatomy taught me Code Black is for an explosive device.  And I believe that means Denny will be walking around the halls (was that the same ep?  I stopped watching around that time...)
 
2013-04-19 01:52:43 AM
wiki = code black = bomb threat.
 
2013-04-19 01:52:48 AM
Scanner just crapped out! Damn.
 
2013-04-19 01:52:52 AM
The scanner feed is fascinating
 
2013-04-19 01:52:59 AM
CODE BLACK AT MT AUBURN HOSPITAL MEANS BOMB THREAT
 
2013-04-19 01:53:04 AM
Code Black is usually deceased person incoming to ER, I think.
 
2013-04-19 01:53:07 AM
At the ER I worked for, "Code Black" meant security/safety issue. Not sure that's a nationwide code...
 
2013-04-19 01:53:09 AM
At least one person is claiming that suspects threw a pressure cooker bomb at police.

http://medical-dictionary.thefreedictionary.com/code+black

At the hospital I volunteer at a code black is a bomb threat.

Code Black = Wolf Blitzer coming for children while in blackface
 
2013-04-19 01:53:22 AM

Fark It: Somacandra: Fark It: EOD?

Explosive Ordinance Disposal, probably

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."


I just heard that, 4+ minutes after you said it.  This scanner feed is pretty far back.
 
2013-04-19 01:53:27 AM
NY Post reports several dark-skinned people seen dumping cargo into Boston Harbor, may be Iroquois or Islam  Are they in custody or no? CNN says yes.

Bomb threat.

It's a joke.  NYP is famous for making shiat up

Sorry, but sounds like a Ron Paul guy.

Yeah. Listening to the scanner, watching MSNBC (Local NBC affiliate feed), and reading this thread. Lots of media.
 
2013-04-19 01:53:54 AM

Frederick: What was that about middle eastern looking with a snowflake hat?


Yeah, I didn't understand what that was about. Female cop or dispatcher was asking about someone with that description, and I think she was told they didn't have anybody who looked like that.
 
2013-04-19 01:53:57 AM

Somacandra: Code Black is usually deceased person incoming to ER, I think.


That'd be Code Blue

That looks to be a shop of the original photo posted earlier from twitter showing explosion site.. sans backpack dude.  The shadow is sketchy.

Thanks for the hookup, cc_rider!

Faille: Grey's Anatomy taught me Code Black is for an explosive device.  And I believe that means Denny will be walking around the halls (was that the same ep?  I stopped watching around that time...)


No, no, no. That was after Meredith drowned, not during the bomb thing.

It was code for a bomb for the hospital where I worked.
 
2013-04-19 01:54:14 AM

rynthetyn: What does "code black" mean?


Code black can mean:

Dead person admitted
Emergency to ER personnel
Bomb Threat
Mass Casualty situation
Other Personnel Threat
Infant Abduction
Emergency Diversion

Depending on the hospital (Source, Wiki)

So it could mean practically anything tonight.
 
2013-04-19 01:54:17 AM
Is there a transcript of the scanner feed?  As I recall, someone was transcribing the Christopher Dorner events in real time.
 
2013-04-19 01:54:20 AM

ladyfortuna: Screw it, I'm gonna have to dig up the annual TF membership fee somewhere. Two nights in a row I've been riveted, and you guys make this stuff easier to process...


*gasp*

Thank you, anonymous donor! <3
