DamnYankees: FarkinNortherner: While the death and injury toll has been terrible, incompetent terrorists really are my favourite sort.

These guys seem pretty competent. They did what they intended to do.


But what they intended to do was pretty stupid. There are tons of high value, poorly guarded targets in the US yet terrorists insist on trying to kill random people directly. Blow up a bridge, a dam, derail a train, sink a ferry. Unless they had some lasting vendetta against track and field events I don't understand what they hoped to accomplish.

I know where the marathon bomber is hiding, but I won't tell. #omniscience #omnisilence


Tell tweet boy to give my regards to the FBI when they dismantle his door with a 90 pound steel ram.

Someone airlift George Zimmerman to Boston immediately.

Get behind cover and take care approaching. Open door. Use caution.

office_despot: I can't help give a short laugh about all last night's FARK speculation as to the ethnicity of the perpetrators.  Chechen is literally as caucasian as you can get.


Except they are Chechens.. and (per their won Facebook page) Muslims in a Jihad against Russia and Syria. So... yeah. really no winners here? Who doesn't know that much of the middle east is "Caucasian" and what difference does that make!?!?


SOMETHING JUST HAPPENED!?!?! ON CNN. SMOKE, COPS EVERYWHERE

Ham Sandvich: BarkingUnicorn: soopey: Frederick: How long until Bostonians get fed up and go looking for this guy despite police saying to stay inside?

When the coffee runs out.

What time do the bars open?

They ain't opening today. That's what a personal stash is for.


Well, the bars WOULD open if the people went out and nailed this guy!  That's where this post started.

Everyone taking cover...

vudukungfu: This just in. CNN's reporting that the 7-11 clerk wasn't even supposed to be there that day.


OK, this made me laugh!

Fissile: Wait, I'm confused.  Aren't Chechens some of the "good Muslims" that Murica aided and abetted in attacking the Russians?  Didn't the US of Murica repeatedly condemn the Russians for dropping cluster bombs on these "good Muslims"?   It appears that these Chechens made their way here from Turkey.  Isn't Turkey a "good Muslim" country that is a solid friend to Murica, and, even more importantly, a good friend to Israel?  Wasn't Bin Laden armed by Murica when he was killing Russians?  Sure is funny how the "good Muslims" that the US encourages to attack the Russians always seem to end up turning on Murica.


Because they are like unicorns.... they dont exsist

Take cover, not concealment.

kronicfeld: vudukungfu: This just in. CNN's reporting that the 7-11 clerk wasn't even supposed to be there that day.

Wolf Blitzer reporting that one of the suspects had sex with a dead guy in the bathroom.


We're getting new details, the dead guy's name is, yes, the dead guy's name is thought to be "Wolf Blitzer".

Boojum2k: dittybopper: GoldSpider: dittybopper: In other words, Massachusetts law is already much stricter that what was proposed and failed in the Senate the other day. If anyone tries to make political hay out of it, saying that's why we need universal background checks, it's likely to backfire.

You'd think so, if Fark were populated with rational, self-reflective people.

I'm talking about outside of Fark.

You'd think so, if the world were populated with rational, self-reflective people.


Touche'.

CNN lady freaking out and trying to get producer attention.

"Smell smoke"
"Tons of cars"
"Dogs barking"

I work for the MIT Police, so I'm getting a kick, yadda yadda and... Thanks for that. For those who are curious, the man killed was a very nice guy, and more than that, he was a Geek, and a damned good one. "We lost one of our own" takes on a double meaning for me now.

This is what we're wearing.

Here here.  Stay safe out there!
 
2013-04-19 08:36:33 AM
Take cover, no concealment.  Wow.

Someone's emergency signal is going off... no response yet.  Oh damn.

something is happening in watertown.
 
2013-04-19 08:36:40 AM
Looks like cops are moving in on Suspect 2.  Tac teams mobilizing and reports on scanner for assistance and telling people to find cover

Was he one day away from retirement, too?


He was getting too old for this shiat.

common sense is an oxymoron: Willow Park--man in black hoodie running


Previously the dude had a gray hoodie from robbing the convenience store.  Same guy?  I guess he could have changed, but so far he hasn't exhibited much intelligence.
 
2013-04-19 08:36:45 AM
Oh lawd.

Mike Chewbacca: Smgth: DamnYankees: Smgth: DamnYankees: Dude on CNN right now knows the suspect.

Good lookin out, thanks for the heads up. I had switched to MSNBC 4 hours ago.

I usually watch MSNBC but I loathe Morning Joe.

I LITERALLY haven't watched live tv news since 9/11/01.

Also it's not like ANY channel is going to have their normal programing on...

Same here. I slept through 9/11 and woke up to Bush talking about this terrible attack on every TV station. I had to go to the internet for info, and watched several of videos and looked at dozens of photos. I haven't gone back to TV news since.


I was walking across my college campus wondering why everyone seemed so subdued, got to class, the teacher explained what happened, HAD CLASS ANYWAY, then I went back to my room and watched TV until I passed out many many hours later.

Someone called in an emergency signal. Anyone heard a response?
 
2013-04-19 08:37:01 AM
shiats going down!
 
2013-04-19 08:37:03 AM
Did they say more officers down? Their saying take cover after that.
 
2013-04-19 08:37:11 AM
Suspect has taken control of a police horse.  Mounted patrol in pursuit.  Speeds reaching cantor, perhaps gallop.

Um, no.

The Chechens are not 'good Muslims' and the US has never supported them.  They are ethnic gangsters, pure and simple, and their religion just makes it easier for them to get support from radical Islamists in other countries.

Horses are involved now? WTF!?

Seriously. I thought about all you TFD people the second I woke up. Be safe.

Turn it on FOX news. He's cornered in a house.

Mike Chewbacca: Darth_Lukecash: They've been in America for 10 years. The youngest was 9. The case could be made that they were Americanized, or at least exposed to American ideas and ways.

These weren't people who just came here on a whim.

Yep, it's as domestic as it can be without being perpetrated by natural born Americans.


Lol. It's as domestic as you can get, other than if it was perpetrated by actual American citizens.

Chechnya is located in the North Caucasus mountains. The suspects are literally Caucasian.

I keep getting cawk blocked trying to post:

CNN freaking - reporter going nuts. Yelling she can smell smoke, it showed police cars swarming, police dogs barking and officers running.
 
2013-04-19 08:38:11 AM
They were chasing someone, and now off Willow St they have someone cornered in a home, guns drawn.
 
2013-04-19 08:38:13 AM

what_now: Ok, so Channel 4 has this guy's uncle on the phone, and he said that the older guy is a loser who didn't finish HS and the younger kid had a bright future.

So..older brother has nothing going for him, and convinces little brother- who seems to be going somewhere- that the Great Satan is the reason.

Yeah, but it's also about as Muslim as you can get, which is as non-white as you can get, leaving us with really white no -whites.

Amirite?


Correct me if I'm wrong, but I think he is saying Chechnya is the Tea Party of countries.

Dick Cheney just appeared on Fox and Friends. On news the bombers immigrated from Chechnya, he called for an immediate military response. He insists we invade Iraq!
 
2013-04-19 08:38:42 AM
Ok, first I'll admit I was starting to think that this was the missing Brown student.  I was TOTALLY wrong.  Hope I learned my lesson.

Now that is out of the way, looks like some sh*t is going down now.

Cybernetic: BarkingUnicorn: DamnYankees: 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.

We have no idea what this guy is like or what his cause it. You're making shiat up to fit a pre-determined narrative.

I also like the use of "normal" and "rational" to describe humans.

Granted, I could have used the phrase, "a person who doesn't kill innocents with homemade bombs" in place of "normal, rational person".


"normal, irrational person"  would have worked.
