Right, these dudes have 5 Stars in Grand Theft Auto right now.

When the Helicopter is after you, you know you're farked.

Time to reset the game, bro.

Watching the live feed - why are the cops standing right in front of the windows?

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.

Are these guys just patsies? Seem to young and dumb.
 
2013-04-19 08:51:46 AM  
Why does every Tom Dick and Harry have their guns out, even just the police far from the incident? It looks very silly and unprofessional.
 
2013-04-19 08:51:46 AM  

FarkinNortherner: dittybopper: There are only two possibilities: Either they possessed the guns legally, and had a Massachusetts FID showing that they passed a background check, or they possessed the guns illegally. It's as simple as that.

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. [My bold]

Unless they bought the guns in another state, in which case it's pretty straightforward (and not wholly irrational) to argue for Mass's standards to be applied nationwide.


You don't get it:  It's illegal for them to have possessed in MA without a permit.

By the same token, it would be illegal for them to purchase in another state without a background check:  Under federal law, you can only transact a private sale with a resident of your same state.  In effect, there is *ZERO* way to legally purchase a gun and bring it in to MA legally without some sort of background check.  Period.  End of story.

Plus, I find the idea that people willing to commit indiscriminate mass-murder would be stymied by even the strictest laws constitutionally possible in the United States ludicrous on the face of it.  I mean, how can you say that with a straight face?  Don't criminals in Massachusetts get guns despite the strict laws?

I mean, come on:  The UK had laws much stricter than the US, and they still couldn't keep the IRA from getting guns, and you're seriously arguing that background checks would have stopped this bombing?  Or just that they wouldn't be able to get guns?

Really?

Did you even read what you wrote before you hit "Add Comment"?

The liberal outrage, feet shuffling, and red herring throwing over this is as sad as it is predictable and unnecessary.  I'm sure the right would do the same if it were a home-grown group of white guys (and those guys aren't white in the American sense of the word).

They're 20 year old men.  20 year old men do stupid shiat.  Violent shiat.  Their actions don't reflect on Islam anymore than McVeigh's reflect on people who want less government.  It's like trying to tie Stalin to Atheism.

Why don't TV news doods listen to police scanners?

They're AT THE SCENE and yet their information is always WAY behind ours...

Yes, 9yo started a sleeper cell. Brilliant.

Purdue_Pete: This is the worst possible scenario in my mind. Muslim Chechen Rebels make Al Qaeda look like Sparkle Ponies. They target children often and are armed with real modern black market weapons. They suck, but I thought we were kind-of-sort-of with them in their hatred of Assad?

When they make up the bad guys in movies, they use the Chechens as a model..

ACTUAL Chechen Rebel, not a movie character:

kronicfeld: Carn: Um, you are aware of the word terrorism and what it means, right? I think they accomplished precisely what they meant to.

Terrorism is defined in the Code of Federal Regulations as "the unlawful use of force and violence against persons or property to intimidate or coerce a government, the civilian population, or any segment thereof, in furtherance of political or social objectives" (28 C.F.R. Section 0.85).

Mass murder is not necessarily "terrorism." Otherwise, Newtown and Columbine would've been called "terrorism." And they weren't.


Agreed, but I think this one may fit the bill.

I would assume they said 'locked in the basement' and not 'rocket in the basement'.  I'm rather sure a rocket is more than a little unlikely lol

Grey hoodie just ducked back into a large industrial building with white backpack, away from the target location toward the arsenal mall. Just outside the perimeter.

I don't know, might have something to do with the fact that two capital murder suspects have already shot two cops?

INeedAName: So... they got these guys inside of a week. Does that mean they were patsies set up by the US government so they could increase security and take away more rights?

mekki: That's what I am going for. These were two brothers doing something on their own with no bigger group backing them up. Just a couple of psychopaths whose only agenda was their own.


One psychopath. The older one. One follower, younger, who is in it for the love and approval of the older. He most likely never would have done anything like this if not influenced by the older.

Rarely do two psychopaths hook up. Psychopaths need ot be the Alpha, and you can't have two of them.

/my opinion.

I want this guy alive.  I want him alive so he can be executed by having someone chop off his legs with an axe.  Or better yet, have someone shoot him in the legs with a blunderbuss full of lug-nuts.  I'm a vicious bastard and this, to me, is justice.

Pressure cookers filled with black powder and nails is pretty young and dumb.  If they knew what they were doing, they could have killed a lot more people.

I'm surprised nobody has mentioned that this was clearly a Jewish conspiracy. It's all too convenient that the bomber died in Beth Israel hospital.

My guess (guess only) is that they do not believe anyone is inside - but rather it's rigged with explosives.

Good thing for the rest of the country you're too dumb to exercise any authority, then.
