Chechnya? Really? Don't they have enough on their plates with fighting Russia, now they want to start something with the US?
 
2013-04-19 07:29:09 AM  

inert: Since we've been gone the taxi people don't seem to be involved, they may have found the suspects discarded clothes, at least one pipe bomb has been detonated and the raccoon is still at large.


And during the taxi incident, the state police decided to overrun the channel with the longest alert EVER.

Mrfusticle: James F. Campbell: Peki: Anyone else notice Reddit was reporting a DDoS attack?? Fun stuff.

Yep. Weird.

Mike Chewbacca: AP is saying they're Russian, from near Chechnya, and have been here 1 year. Who knows if that's true, though.

Gee, how very unfortunate for certain loud-mouthed jerks that these two chuckleheads were Chechen and not Arabic.

Still Muslims though


Damnit, beat me by a SINGLE second!

Shyla: They posted white hats name. Don't remember first, but last is Tsarnaev - possibly Turkish or Russian.


Dzhokhar Tsarnaev

They will claim they were right because they are Muslims.  Nevermind if they are in fact Muslims, they are.

thiefofdreams: rynthetyn: The Chechnya thing is confusing me. I mean, I can see why Chechens would go all terrorist on Moscow or something, but Boston?

Al Queda has been finding white looking people in the ex-soviet states and getting them involved so they can pass for Americans. That is what has been speculated on so far.


I know people have had that conspiracy theory for years, but it doesn't really fit with anything.
 
2013-04-19 07:29:37 AM  
Another suspicious package, 29 Garmore (?)
 
2013-04-19 07:29:48 AM  
Oh, good.  Fark is back.  I was worried that the remaining bomber had claimed another victim.

/I know -- bad joke...=P

schief2: Suspect's page at some Russian social networking site from this RT story.

Yeah, I saw that. It certainly looks like the blurry images of White Hat we've seen.
 
2013-04-19 07:30:09 AM  

Shyla: Man Fark crapped out on me.


I know.  I almost had to go to bed.

Corbow6: Well I at least got a good smoke in during the downtime. I see not much has developed. Have the started on the house-by-house sweeps?


Yeah they have been calling clear streets and such since fark went down. They are now handling package disposal and traffic while the searching continues.
 
2013-04-19 07:30:30 AM  
I was really hoping these two chuckleheads were Militia whackjobs.

No I don't know why.
 
2013-04-19 07:30:40 AM  
I must have missed the custody shenanigans (I had to pee at one point gorramit). Do we have confirmation??

Was it good fir you?
 
2013-04-19 07:31:28 AM  
The taxi/pipe bomb incident was by Kenmore Square, which is Boston proper, not near Watertown.  And there were three people in the taxi... so I'm a little fuzzy on just how many mad bomber types we have in beantown at the moment.

Chechen descent - permanent residents here; remember this stuff is pretty fluid as "facts" go, but that's the lengthiest report I've seen on their background yet.
 
2013-04-19 07:32:04 AM  
And this is supposed to be the dead suspect.

And the scanner just said something about a truck with Russian lettering on it.

I am just stating what the WCVB story is getting from the AP.

Also: to those late in the game...

Cyrillic is the new Arabic.

Be that as it may, race has always played priority for this person in determining, how shall we say, the relative worth of others.

It was like having a steering wheel attached to my pants...
 
2013-04-19 07:33:35 AM  
Great, now I get to hear my relatives complain about Obama coddling the Muslims or some crap like that.

Also, this probably killed immigration reform.

Sweet. Hopefully it's just a matter of time. With it being so quite, I wonder if he's prepping a spot to go out with a literal bang?
 
2013-04-19 07:33:41 AM  
I'm just not sure I trust the identification. It sure came out of nowhere. I see the AP release, but no sources cited, and no source website for it.

Holy rats, I just barely scratched my way back in here.

We did indeed fark Fark, methinks.

Or because I'm profusely verbose in a sesquipedalian manner...
 
2013-04-19 07:35:18 AM  
They may not be Chechen's, according to the RT article they appear to be from Dagestan. Also the Chechen's have by and large given up on being ticked at anyone save for Putin.

Shame on you for almost giving up.
 
2013-04-19 07:35:50 AM  
Last thing I read was a heap of posts claiming the suspect was in custody, and the excitement apparently made fark crash.

Come back, no suspect in custody. All that for nothing.
 
2013-04-19 07:35:52 AM  
Probably worth noting at this point that no individuals represent their entire ethnicity, nationality, or religion. If these guys are in fact Chechen Muslims they are no more or less indicative of either of those groups than the insane white america fundamentalist terrorists of all stripes are of Americans or Christianity as a whole. Violence is violence, hate is hate, and the vast majority of everyone, everywhere, practice neither.

I was having some srrs withdrawal there...

Yeah, I finally cracked and put on the scanner.


warning that's addictive.

408 Atlantic--someone else in custody.
 
2013-04-19 07:37:11 AM  
I'm conflicted. On one hand I want this farker caught alive because I want him to face the full weight and power of the United States Justice System.

On the other hand, I want his head on a pike outside the white house.


So conflicted.

/Goes for Black Hat Suspect too.
//Know he's dead, the head on a pike will suffice

Sounds good.
 
2013-04-19 07:38:34 AM  
I'm still up!  The shots woke me up around 1, and here I am.  Luckily there is a vehicular traffic ban and we're not allowed to leave our houses, so we can't go to work.  That's good.  I've been up almost all night.  That's bad.  Although it's a Friday.  That's good.  But the police scanner has been reduced to randomly following up on "tips" about each and every such and such middle eastern, russian writing, backpack, dark hair purple monkey dishwasher.  That's bad.
