You know, for all the insanity we've seen this past week, all the heartache and chaos and sheer "what the fark is going on with this world" moments, you have to remember that there is also a great deal of insanity of the good going on too. In a week of sadness, we've also seen a week of triumph, a week of compassion, a week of people going out of their way, risking their own lives just to make sure that total stranger has a better shot at life.

For all the insanity we're facing this week, for all the misery and chaos; we need to remember all the good that has come from that. If that is all the "April showers" that we've witnessed this week, then all the good: the giving, the outreach, the common bonds as humans that we've shared, those are the "May flowers" that have sprung forth, and in far greater abundance.

Shoot out the tires.

F*ck the tires. Shoot the shooter, the cop he shot is dead.


I hope they catch him alive, if for no other reason than to find out if there is a connection to the bombing from earlier.  Better to close both cases if possible, and get him to flip on any accomplices if he was involved in the bombings.

mrshowrules: Why is the FBI there?


Shooting at a college barely a swallow's flight away from a bombing that killed 3 and injured over 150, and just three days after said bombing. Why WOULDN'T the FBI be there?

NewportBarGuy: King Something: Students of the Massachusetts Institute of TECHNOLOGY are not necessarily tech-savvy.

To be fair, they do court the other sciences. I'm just very doubtful they are students. And, crime does happen. Could they have caught them trying to hit the campus, maybe. I'll just go with crazy guy doing crazy things. Like every other day ending in y.


Point taken, but if the crazy guy doing crazy things is an MIT student, chances are he is a bit more tech-savvy than your average AOL user.

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.

One suspect is at large. He took off in an SUV while shooting out the window.

They were saying one suspect heading to Beth Israel, someone else pinned down, and someone escaping, but only two suspects.  So it's unclear which of those three is false.

This isn't being directed well.

I may be wrong, but I think the injured suspect held at gunpoint and the suspect being taken to the hospital are one and the same. But, yes, it's getting so that you can't tell the players w/o a program.


The last PD feed confirmed two suspects in custody, one on the ground, one at the hospital. That was per the officers on scene reporting back to the watch commander. The suspect down is the one they are waiting on the robot for.

If they're worried that phones will set them off, people in the houses filming the bomb in the street will set it off just as easily, if it actually worked that way.


You wouldn't be worried about all phones.

You would be worried about one phone wired to detonate a bomb when it receives a call or text.

If this were the sort of situation that required a lot of talking heads to fill up airtime with inane speculation, they would be all over it. Dealing with this would require some actual, real-time reporting, so they're saying "fark it."

Nothing definitely linking them that I've seen, but various swarthy dudes have been allegedly responsible for bombing a race, shooting a police officer, and now hijacking a car all in a short span of time, it stands to reason it could all be the same person, the time line works at least.

Considering the robbery was committed by a dark skinned white male who then took the MIT Officers revolver, and then a bit later an SUV is carjacked in the same Area, the victim describes the carjackers as two middle eastern men, one with a gun. The carjacker victim escaped at a gas station.

Maybe the bomb suspects freaked out with their faces on the news or maybe someone recognized them.

I hope so.

It seems like a big issue is no one knows if the marathon bombers, MIT shooter, and now hijackers are in any way related or if Boaton is just in the middle of a bizarre crime spree right now.

King Something: Point taken, but if the crazy guy doing crazy things is an MIT student, chances are he is a bit more tech-savvy than your average AOL user.


I've been busy at work but read up enough to feel briefed. When someone said "pressure cooker bomb" I had to honestly ask, WTF? My first question was "How was it detonated?" Someone said a cell phone, but that made no sense to me. If you are so unsophisticated you are using a pressure cooker... Then I heard it was a timer. The Iraqis liked to use dishwasher timers in some of their IEDs. All of that stuff is common knowledge, low tech stuff. Easy to access.

Sounds like Anarchist's Cookbook sh*t. Nothing like a well-planned attack. Plus, any terror group would have set it off as the first person came across the finish line... Not wait an hour until people got bored and left. They would want it live. So would anyone who got into MIT.
