McDougal: Screech?[images.buddytv.com image 600x416]
aspAddict: Are you assuming they went to a local sporting store and bought them?
fredklein: bulldg4life: DamnYankees: If these dudes are innocent, this is gonna be horrible.They were shooting at cops and throwing explosives.What in the blue bloody f*ck makes you think they are innocent?Well, in all honesty, the cops thought these people were Chris Dorner, so...[www.pslweb.org image 400x225][extras.mnginteractive.com image 500x311]They also though a guy with a wallet in his hands was shooting at them....and countless other examples where cops weren't just 'wrong', but were very, very wrong.So, now we're supposed to trust police that this time they have the right guys?
WinoRhino: Bendal: Entire city of Boston ordered inside and locked down now. Police doing house to house search, all transit, universities and businesses ordered closed. Wow.My wife works in Kendal Square near MIT. She got phone calls from her company starting at 5am to stay home and not come into work. We used to live in the very neighborhood in Watertown where the gun play was happening, but live north of there now. We keep recognizing all the houses and businesses on TV.
Cybernetic: DamnYankees: This kid must be scared beyond his mind right now. Not that we need to feel bad for him, but just from a sociological point of view, imagine how farked he must feel.People like him are not only willing to die for their cause, but actually WANT to die for their cause. They don't seem to fear death the way that a normal, rational person would.
machoprogrammer: thisispete: Chechens? That came out of left field. Typically they go after Russians. What's their beef with the US?Uhh, Chechen rebels are way more intense than even Al Qaeda. You know how insane Russia is about some things? Well, take that and apply it to militant Islam. In fact, Shamil Basayev (old Chechen rebel leader) said Al Qaeda was not violent enough for his tastes.
thisiszombocom: johnnyrocket: Dzhokhar A. Tsarnaev[pbs.twimg.com image 690x388]bob dylan was a terrorist??
Krikkitbot: johnnyrocket: Dzhokhar A. Tsarnaev[pbs.twimg.com image 690x388]You Lie! That's Bob Dylan on the left.
Close2TheEdge: Lockdown extended to entire city of Boston. Guess I am staying home today.
100 Watt Walrus: Summary for those just starting their coffee:Apparent convenience store robberyMIT cop responds, these clowns shoot him multiple timesThey carjack somebody(gap in my knowledge)At some point they're in an SUV that may have been a stolen police vehicleThey shoot at the cops and throw and/or plant grenades and/or IEDs(No kidding, on the scanner there was something akin to "Shots fired! Shots fired! Grenade! Grenade! Grenade!", and there's a YouTube video out there with half a minute of sustained gunfire)Running firefight"Black Hat" shot multiple times, possibly run over, possibly injured by bomb strapped to chest"White Hat" escapes"Black Hat" taken to Beth Israel, diesCode Black (usually means bomb or bomb threat) at area hospital, but NOT Beth Israel"White Hat" spotted (twice?) but gets away, possibly in another firefightNow at large./Oh, and at some point an innocent who was very much in the wrong place at the wrong time spent 20m face-down on the ground with a robot probing him, then he was stripped and put in the back of a police vehicle before being cleared.And we've got cops, FBI, Homeland Security, National Guard, HumVees, and at one point something described as a "tank."I know this sounds like I'm Michael-Bay-ing you, but really, seriously, I'm not.
dbirchall: yukichigai: DamnYankees: If these dudes are innocent, this is gonna be horrible.Shooting at cops and flinging IEDs out randomly is TOTALLY innocent behavior.It stands Innocent Explosive Devices, after all...
DamnYankees: This kid must be scared beyond his mind right now. Not that we need to feel bad for him, but just from a sociological point of view, imagine how farked he must feel.
yukichigai: msupf: Mike Chewbacca: msupf: Dutchguy000It could be AKitz's roomate. He did say "we" multiple times and never "I".possible, but Akitz never mentioned roommate, and this is hours after the fact, so even if it is the roommate, I highly suspect he was there before or after.He specifically mentioned that the chair that got shot was his roommate's chair, not his.
OtherLittleGuy: T shut down twice in a week. Wow./Chechens? When did they have oil?
Tomahawk513: Chechens were the primary foreign fights in Iraq and Afghanistan.
bloobeary: common sense is an oxymoron: They haven't found the second one yet. Suspicious sightings everywhere, both inside and outside the police perimeter.The second one (being the "White Hat" guy) is still on the run, then?I was talking about this, from the provided link, though: "7:15 AM: NPR's Dina Temple-Raston reports that third person (described as an "accomplice") has been arrested. "Around 5am, there was word on the scanner that someone had come downstairs at 89 Dexter (what the folks in the thread were calling "the bomb house" and saying was the home base for these guys) and closed the back door, which had been standing open. The police had assumed the building was empty until that point, as they had entered it earlier. Shortly afterward, a call came for a negotiator to be sent to 89 Dexter.My guess is, this third guy was hiding inside.
Zentor: Not that it's been shown yet, but if they're Chechen there's a good chance they're jihadists.
DamnYankees: Bit'O'Gristle: the one comment you make is feeling sorry for the mental state of the surviving terrorist.I don't feel sorry for him. I find it fascinating.
LlamaGirl: This is so farking surreal and I hate it.I hope we find out WHY these lunatic asshole poopstains did it.
Bit'O'Gristle: DamnYankees: This kid must be scared beyond his mind right now. Not that we need to feel bad for him, but just from a sociological point of view, imagine how farked he must feel./You are either trolling or the God of uber libs. Two officers are dead, One hundred plus.people wounded and 3 dead citizens, and the one comment you make is feeling sorry for the mental state of the surviving terrorist./epic facepalm to end all facepalms.
WhyteRaven74: BraveNewCheneyWorld: Remember just a few days ago when scores of you Dem loyalists insisted that this must be various right wing domestic groups? Go F*ck Yourselves.Nothing so far rules out this being purely domestic.
FarkinNortherner: While the death and injury toll has been terrible, incompetent terrorists really are my favourite sort.
what_now: I mean...what POSSIBLE reason could he have for targeting us?
Bit'O'Gristle: /epic facepalm to end all facepalms.
natas6.0: Some overpaid, government lackey let them into the country and never paid any attention past that.Could we hold them at least partially responsible?The douchebag running now has a scholarship.That horrible system needs to be fixed asap
JohnnyRebel88: Krikkitbot: johnnyrocket: Dzhokhar A. Tsarnaev[pbs.twimg.com image 690x388]You Lie! That's Bob Dylan on the left.Saw Bob Dylan last night in Bethlehem, so I doubt he is in the area and can confirm his whereabouts. He sounded terrible, great band though.
GoldSpider: Obviously they went to a gun show and exploited the "gun show loophole".I'm going to enjoy reading Fark today and reading the mea culpas from people who "knew" this was a "second amendment solution."
Frederick: How long until Bostonians get fed up and go looking for this guy despite police saying to stay inside?
chocolate covered poop: So you're probably the most wanted 2 people in the U.S., and your attitude is "Eh, its already Thursday I'm sure everything is cool, lets go rob a 7-Eleven"? I always biatch about how stupid most people are, but maybe sometimes that's a goodthing.
msupf: yukichigai: msupf: Mike Chewbacca: msupf: Dutchguy000It could be AKitz's roomate.

BarkingUnicorn: This is why I despise empathy.
dukeblue219: . They've grown up around terror
