Thanks.  I'm up all night, it seems.

Person with backpack being arrested earlier has been released. The earlier statement that "this stuff just happens in a tense situation and he'll be released once he's cleared" seems to have been correct.

Hell of a day to choose for the cesarean!

Hey, April 19 is a perfectly good day for a birthday, I've had it for more than 30 years now! Sure, we've gotten more than our share of shiat over the years, but you just have to celebrate being alive that much harder. Congrats to you and your family, and best of luck. Happy birthday, babies!


Mine's April 21. Columbine, OKC bombing, Tienanmen Square, Chernobyl, and now all this, all in the same 10-day period right around my birthday.

rga184: Mock26: Dear Doctor,

If you are nervous and a bit shaky when operating on the injured suspect I will not hold it against you if yours scalpel slips and nicks the guy's heart.

F-that. Get him through the surgery and the hospital stay, then keep him alive and put him in a dark room the rest of life. Preferably a rat infested one, where he has to eat the rats to feed himself.


In all honesty, I would like to see these guys sent overseas where at night they will live in a small metal box and by day they will disarm land mines.

So far they are just looping the video they have. They were pushed back multiple blocks repeatedly, and now they can stay there if they are near the truck.

The feed from the scanner says they are doing sweeps, and they have bomb dogs and robots ready. Apparently they saw a male drop something in a trench, and are investigating.

gaspode: In 2007 or 2008, I went running Central Park. It is common for runners to stash a water bottle along their route to loop back around to and it will still be there. I wanted to stash a backpack, so I got a Pacsafe open-mesh security bag thing and locked my backpack to a bench. When I got back around, there were three squad cars there and they were considering calling the bomb squad. farkers. They were not happy with me.

I am stunned that someone didnt piss on it


Maybe I've been living in 'the city' too long, I'm surprised it was there 30 seconds later. Actually not kidding, a couple of years ago a Starbucks employee went to pee and found an open backpack with a pipe bomb in it.  Cops eventually tracked it to a homeless guy who claimed he 'found it' on the street. More likely an automotive break and grab, butt still.

Not to mention the fact that we're technically still at war with Canada.

Remember 9/11.
 
2013-04-19 02:03:24 AM  

HotWingAgenda: If these weren't the bombers, they are the stupidest criminals in the country.  That's like waiting until a day or two after 9/11 to try to rob a bank.


You'd be surprised. Shortly after 9/11, I was in a restaurant in Maryland, and our server told us that a few days earlier (just after 9/11) some guy came in and asked for a table. When he was told there was a long wait, he pulled out a knife and said "do you have a table for me?" They went ahead and seated him and he sat and ordered while they called the police.

Some people just don't have an awareness of propriety or timing. (not meant to imply there's a good time to pull this crap)

KangTheMad: Smgth: "Officers have also been warned to turn off their mobile phones for fear of setting off explosives."

Now I'm no bomb expert, but I don't think that's how they work...I was under the impression that things like that were dialed directly, not just randomly searching for signal...unless they're worried about an accidentally right signal?

/I'm willing to entertain the concept that I'm entirely wrong on this point.

Yeah, earlier an officer radioed in and asked if there was a chance of unintentional detonation via cell phone interference, that was confirmed and officers were ordered to turn off their phones and leave them in their cruisers.


Right, but is it like that cell phones at gas stations thing? Where it is conceivably doable under perfect circumstances, yet astronomically unlikely? I mean, when you're talking about potentially fatal explosions, LITERALLY better safe than sorry, but I'm just wondering how likely it is....

/Anyone know?

Long rifles and possible snipers. Not sure. ABC is showing people's video they have sent in.

But you're hurting yourself, America, and the ones you love. I can't watch you do this to yourself. Why won't you let Canada love you? Why do you push her away and engage in this self destructive behavior?

They killed a cop and a kid.  They're not making it to court.

I want to say good.  But I want them in court.  I want to know why, from their lips to know what the hell they are doing.  I don't want them to be shot and killed and have just speculation.

Then sentence them to death and carry it out.


I understand this, but at the same time have to disagree. There is no justification good enough, and I don't want excuses. I really DON'T want to know what goes on inside these people's heads.

Myth busters showed it was women who blow up gas stations. They start the pump, put in the nozzle. Then slide into their car and back out, building up a static charge and then when they touch the nozzle. Static discharge. KABOOOOM.

/Morans then keep the fuel flowing as they pull out the nozzle and then spay raw fuel to catch fire on the car. Otherwise leaving the nozzle in the fill tube would result in the fire snuffing out.
