Cpl.D: 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?


That's the only one they have.

TsukasaK: shinji3i: That sounds like you dealt with the aftermath.

Seriously? Fark you. This is NOT THE TIME OR THE PLACE.


This sounds like the time and the place. Its the internet.

TheManofPA: netweavr: 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.

I can't wait for the days were we can get back to Earguy posting pics and not threads about shootings and death


Seriously, dude.

Um. Sup with all the gunshots on the Boston live feed?
 
2013-04-19 02:01:57 AM
holy farking shiat watching a video of the shooting right now
 
2013-04-19 02:02:03 AM
OMFG, vertical phone video....

What's the maximum number of stars you can earn?

It sounds like another bombing attempt was thwarted and led to this scene playing out.

/not from scanner -My own opinion
 
2013-04-19 02:02:11 AM
I gotta get in the bed Boston. Good night and good luck y'all.
 
2013-04-19 02:02:17 AM

mikaloyd: Released the 2nd guy who was detained. He is walking home


I myself would be walking to the nearest bar.
 
2013-04-19 02:02:20 AM
Wow, what a freaky video.
 
2013-04-19 02:02:27 AM

nyrkah1: AHHH! I just heard f**k on the tv stream. My precious senseabilities.


They referred to the language as "a little crispy". I'm unclear on whether or not this is a Bostonism.
 
2013-04-19 02:02:28 AM

Bunny Deville: 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.


There were reports of shots fired eariler. They were firing from the car just before the bombs came out. Not sure if cops returned fire though. Crazy shait going on for sure.
 
2013-04-19 02:02:28 AM
CNN is probably pawing at their genitals with glee fantasizing about the chance to redeem themselves right now.

/Listening to scanner
//fark the tv

Flocking guns! CC for the cussing impaired.
 
2013-04-19 02:02:31 AM
"Flocking guns" on closed captions
 
2013-04-19 02:02:31 AM
With all of the supposed engineers here on Fark, I would assume that there would be at least a few MIT Farkers that could give us some update what is happening.
 
2013-04-19 02:02:35 AM
heh the news feed. "Those sound like real flocking guns" (the CC from the boston news station)

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

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


Quick cash to get the fark out of Dodge.
 
2013-04-19 02:02:48 AM
Come on long guns, hit that second guy.

Sounds like they found the SUV, now they have to hunt him again
 
2013-04-19 02:02:53 AM
there you go the choppers are using FLIR, thats why their lights are off
 
2013-04-19 02:02:54 AM
Heli is lighting up the last location the abandoned SUV was spotted
 
2013-04-19 02:03:01 AM

ndeans: I haven't heard any references to them using any FLIR in their Choppers, surely they have that tech available to them


They are asking the chopper to spotlight an area now for guidance
 
2013-04-19 02:03:03 AM

Tatsuma: holy farking shiat watching a video of the shooting right now


Local feed, or CNN?
 
2013-04-19 02:03:10 AM

timujin: Redeployed to Dexter and Nichols to the second vehicle. Right in the middle of the area they've been working


Correction: Abandoned SUV at Laurel and Dexter
 
2013-04-19 02:03:17 AM
they are still looking for the second guy. asking for copter to light up the suv so they can get their bearing.
 
2013-04-19 02:03:18 AM

NateAsbestos: Fark = better news than all the alphabet soup agencies.

TF would destroy my life


True, but surprisingly it doesn't hurt.  Kinda tickles.
 
2013-04-19 02:03:24 AM
OMG the F-word
 
2013-04-19 02:03:26 AM
F-bomb...lol
 
2013-04-19 02:03:29 AM
'State police, what the fark'

And lol on television they are saying 'You know what it's 2 in the morning and shots are being fired'

Makes me think nostalgically of Gorgor's days...
 
2013-04-19 02:03:45 AM
Please say you all heard that F Bomb just now.
 
2013-04-19 02:03:58 AM
This would not be a good night to steal a bunch of back packs and take off on foot.
 
2013-04-19 02:04:08 AM

Grand_Moff_Joseph: Local feed, or CNN?


Local
 
2013-04-19 02:04:08 AM
The only thing this lacks is Geraldo Rivera stumbling about the backyards of Watertown with a cameraman and flashlight, trying to catch a murderer.

And getting shot.
 
2013-04-19 02:04:24 AM

cameroncrazy1984: Somebody planting non-Monsanto seeds?


First laugh I've had in days.

skykid: Please say you all heard that F Bomb just now.


I did and now I'm crying.
 
2013-04-19 02:04:52 AM

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

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

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


Perhaps Fark should dub the guy they arrested "Professor Chaos".
 
2013-04-19 02:05:04 AM
Officer down. shiat.
 
2013-04-19 02:05:04 AM

skykid: Please say you all heard that F Bomb just now.


lulz, I heard it
 
2013-04-19 02:05:21 AM
Did scanner just call in another officer down?
 
2013-04-19 02:05:30 AM
MIT = CAMPUS IS SAFE
 
2013-04-19 02:05:31 AM
Sounds like many of the officers are not familiar with the area they need to search. Doing alright considering the confusion.
 
2013-04-19 02:05:37 AM

shower_in_my_socks: This would not be a good night to steal a bunch of back packs and take off on foot.


Teenagers beware:  Now is not the night to be garage-hopping in and around Boston....
 
2013-04-19 02:05:42 AM
Did I hear officer down AGAIN?!

I see you added TF again.
