Bigdogdaddy: I suspect the perp will commit suicide by shooting himself hundreds of times in the body right as the cops get there. 

I can only hope they get the satisfaction before he shoots himself in the head.


FARK no. Like others have said, take them alive so we can find out just what the hell they were trying to do.

Eye for an eye bullshiat is stupid.

With all the speculation that this is related to the terrorist attack, does this look like the bombing suspect in the white hat? Too tired to think atm.

Captain Dan: Great Janitor: 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.

Actually, I'd prefer to not know their motives.  Terrorists want their motives to be disseminated, that's why so many of them write manifestos.  One of the best deterrents against terrorism would be a policy of never publicly revealing their motivation.


The reason why I want to know is that I'm that kind of guy who wants to know why.  Like it or not, this is going to be in the history books.  Our grandkids will read about this week.  I would want them to know what happened, who did it, and why, in the words of the terrorists, why they did it.  To me the worst thing that could happen is to kill them dead, check their ids, find out that they are foreign born citizens and bomb their home nations only to find out that they had no association with any group in their home nation, that they hated the U.S. and wanted to kill Americans.

So far the news doesn't know if this is the same guy.

Apparently there was a double armed robbery at two gas stations side by side, right before all this happened.

If this were LA, the LAPD would have shot two dozen suspects by now.

Additionally, killing the perpetrators now removes any potential for them to suffer* in the future.

*Specifically, by being locked in a miserable prison, amounting to nothing, for the rest of their long lives.

srhp29: Tavillion: About the person being arrested, one bystander who allegedly knows him said "They just arrested him because he had a backpack on, there was no probably cause or nothing!"

Oh great, now we are going to have people with backpacks crying for equality.


At 1:30 in the morning, in a situation where two bomber murder suspects are believed on the loose in the area, they're going to detain everyone that could have any chance of being involved. Easier to grab and secure everyone because then they are just off of the streets to not be re-encountered by more law enforcement.

If he's uninvolved he'll probably just be let go when they're confident that it's secure.

Mock26: ladyfortuna: Mock26: You know, being a life-long Yankees fan (born and raised in New York (State)) I am required to hate, loathe, and despise Boston and all its residents.  But of all the cities in the country it would actually be at the top of my "Do not f@ck with us!" list.  These bombers had better hope that they are not captured by some good samaritan Southies.

As Jon Stewart said the other night, it's a sibling rivalry. So it's ok to feel that way and still support them.

I know.  I actually cried when I saw a picture of my friend, who is from Boston, standing at the top of Heartbreak Hill, on the day of the marathon.  I was so relieved to learn he was not injured.  Still, hate Boston and Sox fans.  :-D


To be honest, Stewart AND Colbert made me cry earlier today when I watched the episodes (I didn't have time to until Thursday afternoon). Both of them are super classy in these situations.

Because if we skipped it the numbering system would be totally farked.  Now if you're referring to the events occurring within the week, I can't answer for that.  Sorry.

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.

Fjornir: cretinbob: encryption?

I don't think so. Too slow. Pretty sure that's trunk and channel negotiation tones. Those tones are likely link and channel negotiation tones.


But Boston isn't trunked.  Could be MSP or other responders agency...

Usually the output doesn't have any of the trunk related stuff output audibly.  If it's Smartnet/Zone, EDACS, or P25, there isn't reallly a negotiation for channels, the control channel grants one and the radios joined to the system and switched to that talkgroup are told to go to that channel and wait for the initiating radio to start talking.  They usually use PL/DCS squelch tones, but those shouldn't be audible either.

Maybe their radios have some idiotic tail tones/roger beep kind of thing that lets everyone know that the person transmitting unkeyed their radio.

2013-04-19 01:55:51 AM

xlbrooklyn: Dimensio: On Sunday, April 14, 2013, I purchased a new pair of shorts at Old Navy. When doing so, I left my backpack locked with my bicycle outside of the mall.

I suspect that such an action, after recent events, would result in me finding the area around my bicycle cordoned off and a bomb squad called to the scene.

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

"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.

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!

Dunno. Not familiar with Boston's emcomm.

Usually the output doesn't have any of the trunk related stuff output audibly.

I was only hearing it when someone was keyed up and talking so I assumed the repeaters were not passing it as audio normally and it was only getting through audibly when a radio was opening the squelch with their CTCSS/whatever.

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.
