x23: they need a bomb-dog?! i assume that is a dog designed to act as a bomb. finds the suspect. then explodes.i am most likely correct.
Rhino_man: RINO: CNN is showing cops running with ARs.CNN is just as likely to be running stock footage at this point.
FirstNationalBastard: Myria: CNN finally admitted that they were wrong about the naked guy, and said that he was let go.However, CNN also claims that the naked man's detachable penis is the second suspect.

Shyla: Man Fark crapped out on me.

msupf: "Where's Arthur"that just sent me into a laughing fit. I am officially slap-happy tired.
August11: Not that I want to call it or anything, but one of these days a crucial event will be covered best with a Fark thread, by smart citizen Farkers checking various feeds and checking each other's work. And this event will set the sun on CNN and the like.Most of us have known this would come, but this might be the event where grandma and grandpa, internet outsiders in general, switch off the streaming joke that is cable journalism.Thanks for all the excellent links and updates, Farkers. You guys are great.
cc_rider: Just in: T service shut down to all of Boston! Guess nobody's gonna go to work today

You guys are great.I'm visiting my parents right now. Within 30 mins of all this going down my dad had muted the tv so he could hear the scanner I was listening to. Last time I checked he had given up on the tv's coverage and was lurking this thread. He was astounded on the accuracy and quickness of the info on here compared to tv. Probably will lurk the site more often now.
ATTENTION: Boston Bomber on the run.Oh the irony!
HotWingAgenda: It's weird how many false alarms they've had tonight. How many shady people are moving around behaving like mass murderers at 3 to 5 am in Boston?

bluorangefyre: The Fifth Column @Sohzay.@CNN now reporting that the British are, in fact, coming.
LovesEatingMuff: Cop in press conference 2 min. ago said marathon suspect #1 is dead and #2 is on the loose. So who the hell is the naked guy?
Myria: CNN finally admitted that they were wrong about the naked guy, and said that he was let go.

Holy SHIAT what have I missed?!Just a normal day in Detroit: gun fight, police killed, carjacking, grenades, hostages, etc.Only today's Detroit Tuesday happened in Boston and appears directly related to the Bombing.If it were Detroit, the police wouldn't have bothered to get involved.Go fark yourself.I live in the area, they really don't care anymore.I've lived within the city itself all my live. You're full of shiat.
mcnguyen: I guess we can forget 1-31-07 now
I"M OUT OF POPCORN!
log_jammin: shower_in_my_socks: Believe this was posted by someone who lives near the original shootout. Or could be an office on MIT's campus. Probably glad they weren't sitting at their desk at the time.[pbs.twimg.com image 768x1024]when WoW goes horribly wrong.

Almost Everybody Poops: POLICE: Hey guyz, don't forget there are other parts of the city.
shower_in_my_socks: This is the part where he lures all of Boston's police underground and traps them with a cave-in, right?

zerkalo: The use of unnecessary force in the apprehension of Brosama has been approved
fnordfocus: TWX: If he's uninvolved he'll probably just be let go when they're confident that it's secure.An Officer's dead. It's incredibly unlikely that the cops will let this detainee live long enough to find out whether or not he's involved.
Name_Omitted: Would someone be willing to provide a recap?
FizixJunkee: specialk111: The 68 year old woman with asthma was probably watching this thread. lolProbably SpentMiles trolling IRL.

styckx: CNN almost saying a second person has been arrested
Grobbley: [i.imgur.com image 850x198]
evaned: You know who else was "extremely armed and dangerous"?[i.imgur.com image 300x616]
danknerd: Why would he still keep a hat on?
Tatsuma: If they are American citizens, treason laws are still on the books, so hopefully we could actually see them hang on a rope
you are a puppet: nyrkah1: No logical reason for it, but if we're only gonna get one alive, I want it to be "White Hat."If Black hat dies it will be a huge blow to the pro poker tourney circuit.xkcd
TeddyRooseveltsMustache: They're lookin for a honky with a long gun and some boom booms, copy? Over.
T-Servo: White male, grey hoodie, black curly hair, assault rifle and explosives...
ClintonKun: Did we just get an alien signal on the scanner?
Infernalist: A Fark Handle: shouldn't they just call in a drone strike? nuke it from orbit, it's the only way to be sure./this can't be related to the simple armed robbery at mit gone wrong, right?With hand grenades/Explosives?
Abacus9: Tozmo: Imagine being the suspect on the run right now. I would love to feel that kind of adrenaline, kinda what kids feel when playing paintball but ramped up over 9000Seriously? Maybe you should get help now before you end up doing something like this.
Pariah.: "Black jacket, white skin, with a hat on" - description with no context given.
contrapunctus: Yeah, we're a big ole freak show here in the U.S., but the rest of the world loves us for it. Admit it. We're dysfunctional, but goddammit we're entertaining!!!
Great Janitor: contrapunctus: J. Frank Parnell: I think someone needs to have a talk with America. Maybe Canada and Britain can stage an intervention.Oh come on.Yeah, we're a big ole freak show here in the U.S., but the rest of the world loves us for it. Admit it. We're dysfunctional, but goddammit we're entertaining!!!Say what you will, we don't do things by halves in the U.S., we go all out.
Fjornir: thiefofdreams: http://www1.whdh.com/video/7newslive (news feed)Is whdh actually playing anything current? When I shut it off it was just endless loop of their old footage leading up to the guy laying on the ground and the cops backing away.
Infernalist: I'm ignoring CNN right now, someone point me to a reliable source of info, please.
croesius: TheXerox: Damn, the Onion article about this week wasn't farking around. What the hell is it with this time of year? All the crazy shiat happens from April 14-22 or thereabouts.Not the least of which is the fact that in 12 hours some fine doctors are gonna be delivering my twins!Hell of a day to choose for the cesarean!
cman: WTF is going on?Why did this week have to happen?
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!"
Tavillion: A person is currently being taken into custody.
retarded: I live and work on a military base in Afghanistan, and I gotta say, things here seem pretty boring this week compared to what's happening back there. Jesus H Christ on a cracker, wtf is going on.
mediablitz: "Out thoughts are with the police officers family. Now, at the scene, what are you hearing?"That shiat disgusts me.
Tozmo: Imagine being the suspect on the run right now. I would love to feel that kind of adrenaline, kinda what kids feel when playing paintball but ramped up over 9000
gibbon1: Mock26: 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.You misspelled balls.
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.
Captain Dan: Great Janitor: If these are the same people responsible for Monday's bombing, that is going to be an epic list of charges that will be read when they go to court.They killed a cop and a kid. They're not making it to court.
cretinbob: "Anyone who discarged get up here"There must have been a firefight.shiat this is what happens when I walk the dog, I miss the good shiat.
cretinbob: Oh fark.........active shooter in (unintelligible) hospital.......
Dimensio: I am a resident of Louisville, Kentucky. Starting this Saturday, events related to the upcoming Kentucky Derby will occur throughout the city.On Sunday, April 14, 2013, I purchased a new pair of shorts at Old Navy.
