I prefer the term "tool"

shower_in_my_socks: TheManofPA: I hope that bomb threat is just some asshole (who gets caught later) and not a real one.

I feel like these guys aren't the type to phone first. I'm gonna say it's some jackass taking advantage of the moment to call in a BS threat.


One thought I had was that it was the suspects phoning in a false threat to try to divert police resources from their immediate pursuit.

Sounds like they're on Mt. Auburn between Arlington and School, based on the 7-11 / Armenian Church references
 
2013-04-19 01:58:33 AM

earthwirm: It started with a robbery at a 7/11.


Why would terrorists, armed with bombs, rob a 7/11? It makes no sense.

cc_rider: xnewnoisex: Code Black = Wolf Blitzer coming for children while in blackface

That's the stuff nightmares are made of. o.O


Welcome to what I dream about. Wolf Blitzer. I've tried to ice pick it out of my head but it doesn't work.

guess he graduated.

ekdikeo4: netweavr: So they went to MIT to plant bombs and got spotted by campus police? Is that how this started?

Way too early to speculate.  We have no particularly useful information


This is an internet forum whose main use is speculation and boobs.

timujin: Light just came on behind a white house that is supposed to be unoccupied?


Just for the attempt at humor, allow me to translate that to Derp:

Of course the white house is unoccupied!  It has been for over 4 years!  The light is just the light of freedom being re-ignited!


/lame, I know

CODE BLACK: means every one had triple expressos

Confirmed, second one arrested with backpack already released
 
2013-04-19 01:59:10 AM
They released the person they recently mistakenly arrested.

I've enjoyed the experience TFD can kill a day easily though.

Who the hell would decide now was a good time to play GTA in Boston?
 
2013-04-19 01:59:24 AM
Released the 2nd guy who was detained. He is walking home

If it's not related to Monday's bombing then Boston is a farked up place right now.
 
2013-04-19 02:00:01 AM
A former weatherman who has now moved on to the Delmarva area is reporting that there was a massive gun battle, which I'm pretty sure is bullshiat but would love for someone to definitely deny.

"Crispy" language. No need to apologize for that, because seriously, sometimes it's warranted.

/This is such a time.
 
2013-04-19 02:00:18 AM
This is horrible, but I keep thinking of Fringe.

Yeah, I'd start "swatting" everything I could think of. Call 911, "Shots at a childrens hospital!" hang up. Call again "Bomb at a different hospital!" Hang up. Etc.

netweavr: So they went to MIT to plant bombs and got spotted by campus police? Is that how this started?


I believe so, yes.  Remember, Officer J. D. Tippit spotted Lee Harvey Oswald after the assassination and got killed. It's entirely possible, though not confirmed, that these people are related to the bombing and the MIT officer spotted them based in the photographs released by the FBI.  I believe this because why would two totally unrelated people be in possessions of IEDs?  It would make no sense.
 
2013-04-19 02:00:36 AM
Wait, if they released that guy, does this mean we don't have any suspects other then the one shot and taken to the hospital?

Confession: Every time people post that one pic, I just stare at the crying chick with the tight green peasant shirt. Feel guilty about it.

Why are you expecting people who would blow up a bunch of innocent runners and kill kids to make sense?

Maybe the dude was recognized? I don't know. That's just what has been reported so far.

On my phone;can't stream the Boston channel and monitor this thread at the same time. Sticking with Fark.

By the way, with the Tune In scanner feed, they have an app to stream it to your phone.

I haven't heard any references to them using any FLIR in their Choppers, surely they have that tech available to them
 
2013-04-19 02:01:44 AM
Redeployed to Dexter and Nichols to the second vehicle.  Right in the middle of the area they've been working
