Uh oh Wolf Blitzer was hit by a car.
 
2013-04-19 02:21:15 AM  
Any details on first suspect?
 
2013-04-19 02:21:28 AM  
Two guys fighting over a veh. vs. ped. Think they'll be surprised when 30 cops show up?
 
2013-04-19 02:21:35 AM  
Long guns?  Probably a false flag to resurrect the senate gun control bill.   Obama promised it wasn't over.

MaliFinn: nyrkah1: "Long guns" sounds so...quaint.

Sounds like pirate talk.


I was thinking Kentucky Rifles. They were called long guns too.
 
2013-04-19 02:22:00 AM  

draa: Long guns were used eariler. Cops want cover not concealment.


To anyone who doesn't know, "cover" means hiding behind something that can stop bullets - "concealment" means you're just hiding, but behind something that won't stop bullets. The police at the house found out the suspects were using long guns (like a black rifle), which are more powerful, so they realized they needed to back off and find cover and let SWAT finish clearing the house.

Someone was spotted checking out cars at Mt. Auburn.

LordJiro: ladyfortuna: This is getting my adrenaline up; flashbacks to training for clearing a building (never did it live thankfully though).

My life was a lot less boring. This part is only giving me SWAT 4 flashbacks.


Oh man, I played the sh*t out of the SWAT games back in the day. I remember learning about the MP5 from SWAT 2.

Yep. Thanks for filling that in.
 
2013-04-19 02:24:13 AM  
Related to the bombing or not, these guys picked the absolute worst time to rob a convenience store and/or shoot a cop.  Not that there is ever a good time.
 
2013-04-19 02:24:16 AM  
6 shots reported on Park Ave?
 
2013-04-19 02:24:16 AM

Wow, that's nowhere near Watertown.  Not sure if they're more than 2 people involved or just some really smart dudes.

About seven months.

Ray44512: http://www1.whdh.com/video/7newslive


Those newscaster just keep repeating sentences over and over, mostly emphasizing the sensationalistic details.  I'm just trying to keep up (being at a big Uni), and don't want to feel like I'm listening to a football game.

The scanner sites are all in meltdown.

Anyone else think the one suspect looks like that Brown student that went missing a few weeks back?
 
2013-04-19 02:25:20 AM  

russkie247: Sounds like someone was hit by a 'cah'


Unrelated, but this reminds me. Used to have a teacher at my school from Boston. His students did their best to get him to say "fork" as often as possible.
 
2013-04-19 02:25:23 AM  
CNN freaking holding AN IPAD UP TO THE CAMERA to show suspect pictures.  Ridiculous.

The scanner is covering the Boston metro area, so not everything you hear is related to the MIT shooting suspects.
