Number 4 for me. . .

Ditto. Work got shot to hell last night. Night crew Farkers were on the ball last night. Get much better news here. And with jokes.

Hope they nail that scumbag racoon.....

I believe we have a new meme.

And yes, Fark being awesome is why I don't get my news from TV.

/Thanks all who provided transcriptions, links, and calm words


everyone was awesome last night. Much thanks to all who provided links and what not. My co-workers and I were gathered around watching and listening.

Mike Chewbacca: thiefofdreams: Mike Chewbacca: yukichigai: Mike Chewbacca: JohnnyRebel88: The one brother that was shot had shrapnel in him.  It's a shame that he was shot and not tried in a court of law.  God Bless those police officers who died today,  At 19yrs old, it would be quite difficult to to put a gun in one's own mouth.  The fact he didn't shoot himself shows that he wasn't ready to go quietly.

He strapped a bomb to his chest and it apparently went off. That's why he had shrapnel in him, and that's why the cops made the other (non-terrorist) guy strip down naked.

Networks are reporting that Black Hat was run over by the cops, not shot.  THEN they discovered the explosives on him, hence not approaching the body for the longest time.

The doctor who tried to resuscitate him at Beth Israel said he had multiple gunshot wounds and shrapnel.

Yeah doc said he came in under cardiac arrest, they tried cpr for 20 mins. Time of death was 1:35am Boston time.

Good seeing a fact giver moving to this thread too. :)

I was in the two threads all damned night.


Me too, work is gonna suffer, but damn if this is not amazing to watch.

You think only one brother remembered to put on his suicide vest this morning?

well, yesterday...

HMS_Blinkin: dittybopper: InvertedB: Hope they capture the second guy. Also, I can't believe they were still in Boston.

They violated the First Rule of Such Things:  Un-ass the AO (ie., leave the Area of Operations quickly).

Also, one of them was an idiot that wore his hat backwards, so cameras could get a good look at his face.  That's just piss-poor operational security.   I'm wondering if the identification of that person led to them attracting the attention of law enforcement.

They also built their bombs out of pressure cookers.  These are not the world's most professional terrorists we're dealing with here.


In and of itself that's not necessarily evidence of a lack of professionalism.  That's just using what you have, and while the bombs were inefficient, they *DID* work.

We'll find out later, but reports had him with a bomb strapped on, and he blew himself up.

THAT'S Hardcore.

Clay Morrow?
 
2013-04-19 07:57:21 AM
GoldSpider True, and evidently they were able to acquire guns without a background check.

I don't know about that.  As a foreign national I passed a background check in 20 seconds flat.  It checked there was no known reason to sell me the firearm - blacklist, not whitelist.

Sorry- I just woke up. How many trucks did they shoot up and houses did they burn down this time?

You'd think that Chechnyans would have plenty of targets over in their home country and Russia instead of coming over here to blow people up.

2013-04-19 07:58:25 AM

msupf: One thing I have noticed:

the shift change for the police forces could have been done much better. Too many officers coming on duty had really bad, or no info.

The cab situation is a good example. He thought there were three suspects, all at large, and kept demanding the third photo be sent, not realizing (or listening) that there were only two suspects to begin with, and one was dead. He kept complaining that he was being sent doubles of one guy and no third suspect pic.


it unfortunately happens more often than it should. Their shift change was actually pretty good all things considered. The problem happens when they don't listen to their radios. Every incident has THAT guy who ties up the air because they can't be bothered to listen.

It drives me nuts.

If you throw a grenade a cop it's beyond guilt and innocence.  You're simply not going to be alive in 24 hours or less.

Can't say I care in this instance, either.

Insertwitty Namehere: vygramul: Most of the dead were due to police incompetence on that one. Farking idiots, seizing defeat from the jaws of victory.

You are thinking like an American.  To the Russians as long as the bad guys die it's a win.  Civilian deaths mean nothing.  That is the inherent flaw with the plan of taking Russian hostages.


They had saved them. Had they even remedial first aid training or, the smart thing, paramedics on-scene, they wouldn't have had so many people choke to death on their own vomit.

That only makes the terrorists win, and Russians would rather terrorists not think so.
