unchellmatt: Grand_Moff_Joseph: Updated badge for your use:[lh5.googleusercontent.com image 360x350]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.[web.mit.edu image 850x919]
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.
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:[i.cdn.turner.com image 640x360]
DarnoKonrad: poot_rootbeer: You guys are STILL repeating unsubstantiated reports about incidents still in progress?Knock that shiat off!it's called play by play.
somedude210: Showdown going on apparentlyguy keeps peering out a window/snipers are gonna get him
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.

Bungles: 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.
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?Seriously, where are the derpers with the Real Truth TM
Ham Sandvich: vudukungfu: This just in. CNN's reporting that the 7-11 clerk wasn't even supposed to be there that day.Was he one day away from retirement, too?
bulldg4life: Fox News speculating that they were long term sleeper cell....
thiefofdreams: DarnoKonrad: poot_rootbeer: You guys are STILL repeating unsubstantiated reports about incidents still in progress?Knock that shiat off!it's called play by play.Yeah, it is like he doesn't understand what police scanners are.You can listen to what we are posting here.http://tunein.com/radio/Boston-Police-Fire-and-EMS-Scanner-s146109/We are just typing it up so people at work that can't listen can see.
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.
No Expectations: The female anchor on MSNBC has been talking in "I'm about to orgasm" voice for the last hour. It is kinda spooky.
Deep Contact: Are these guys just patsies? Seem to young and dumb.
bulldg4life: Fox News speculating that they were long term sleeper cell....Yes, 9yo started a sleeper cell. Brilliant.
Dynascape: 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.
spentmiles: Suspect is live tweeting from inside the house.Link
SarcasticFark: 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
Orgasmatron138: Watching the live feed - why are the cops standing right in front of the windows?
plewis: 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.
