IrateShadow: What kind of idiot would start up a fake account while the manhunt is still on?  It sounds like a great way to end up with an obstruction charge.


It would be hilarious if the guy with the Twitter account gets his door blasted in by federal agents in a few days and winds up held an an enemy combatant for a couple days...then just gets let go with bus fare.

No torture, just scare the ever loving shiat out of the idiot.

Ham Sandvich: FC Exile: Scanner died.

Mine, too.


/Sounds like they have surrounded a house with the remaining asshole inside and are getting ready to move in and give him his "welcome to America" party. Have to go to work..but wish the officers luck and happy hunting.

I wonder if this is the reason he got away.

Theaetetus: wolfzr2: All scanner feeds are down for me now.

Just came back up.

... but I think it's delayed. I'm hearing the question about letting someone in to get medication, which I heard right before it shut off. Did they just add a minute or two delay in the scanner stream?


Yeah, that's old. My scanner is gone, from both services.

FTFY

bostonians, if you have a gun, get it now. Lock all doors and windows, make an armored corner of your safe room and hunker down with your family. Last i heard there was a possible 3rd suspect and he's going to be looking for shelter any way he can get it.

So everyone was guessing the same thing?

WhyteRaven74: dukeblue219: . They've grown up around terror

They haven't lived in Chechnya, assuming the brother's statements are accurate, since they were little kids. they've spent more of their lives in the US than anywhere else.


One is 26, would have arrived here at 16. Keep your hopes up though. You'll find a way to blame the right somehow.
 
2013-04-19 09:28:36 AM  
looks like they shut down scanner feeds.  Can't blame them if the guy is online and listening, he's one step ahead of the cops.

It's gonna be frozen meat soon. Anybody wondering about this guy's motivations will have to keep wondering. Unless he wrote a manifesto first, which he doesn't seem the type to do.

Male: Check.

I don't think this has one thing to do with their country of origin.    Just 2 crazy brothers out to get the highest score.

Well the important part here is that you can pat yourself on the back for being right.


if you say so.

Too much to catch up on.

We fought Chechens in the WOT in Afghanistan.

Battle of Roberts Ridge or the Battle for Takhur Ghar.

DoBeDoBeDo: rocinante721: Boston PD are asking all not to tweet or post any information from their scanners.

Please don't broadcast what we are broadcasting?

Makes sense.


Suspect can read tweet/posss quietly; can only listen to scanner quietly if he gas a receiver and earbuds. Otherwise he gives away his position.

Czech ambassador to visit scene of plant explosion


Posted on  19/4/2013 14:20:52 byTheDon


The ambassador to the United States from Chechnya is visiting West, Texas, site of the recent explosion due to the many immigrants from Chechnya who live there.

megalynn44: Dimensio: As the city is on lockdown,

I have to say, it's hard to comprehend an entire city on lockdown.


It's not just the city.  It's all of the surrounding towns, too.  No one's going anywhere today, except the fricking knuckleheads who either think they're important or funny.  The police scanners between Cambridge and Watertown (and Brookline and Newton and Somerville, etc.)  have all been about chasing people, checking their ID's, then telling them to go home

rocinante721: Boston PD are asking all not to tweet or post any information from their scanners.


Dammit.  You'd think they'd just encrypt their shiat.

Theaetetus: wolfzr2: All scanner feeds are down for me now.

Just came back up.

The last thing I heard was a noise and someone saying to pull his guys back.  Then it cuts off.

Feeds might be dead on purpose.

Crewmannumber6: Coco LaFemme: I'm not reading through over 1000 posts......someone give me a recap on what's happened.

Well, let's see. First the earth cooled. And then the dinosaurs came, but they got too big and fat, so they all died and they turned into oil. And then the Arabs came and they bought Mercedes Benzes. And Prince Charles started wearing all of Lady Di's clothes. I couldn't believe it.


brilliant! :D

tunein scanner is saying the feed doesn't exist anymore. Earlier it was saying error connecting. I wonder if the Feds pulled the feed.

PunGent: msupf: Seriously, are there some Bostoniains being dicks at this point, just completely ignorant, or are there people helping this kid?

How many people running around in hoodies are they going to come across before they get him?

Unfortunately, this whole area is one big college town, and every second male student dresses like that.


Ok, but then you have the whole "DO NOT LEAVE YOUR HOMES FOR ANY REASON" thing that had been going around since before sunrise. Hell, even ifI never saw or heard that, and stepped outside and saw a metric fark-ton of police, I think the last thing I would do is run from them. I'd get my ass right back inside my home and stay there.

All the scanners are capped.  SOP.  the suspect may have a scanner.

muck4doo: Why would Chechens be mad at the U.S?


In sympathy with fellow Muslims being abused now and in the recent past? There is something of a border crossing internationalist movement on the subject.

No way! Sure, Chechnya is in the Caucasus Mountains. But  I'm sure the similarity of Caucasus to Caucasian is just a weird coincidence.

Are sketch artists painting on canvas now?  Fancy!

Adding texture/noise is one way of making an image appear less blurry, so they may have been doing that.


Ahh.  Hadn't considered that.

Oh ffs. . .

No, apparently they were jocks. Several people who went to high school, they thought they were American born.

Push backed media line again.

2013-04-19 09:31:30 AM  
Not surprised the scanners went dead.  This guy just needs an internet feed and he can see and hear exactly what's happening while the experts on TV describe in detail how the SWAT will attack.  That's going to cost some lives at some point.

MyRandomName: One is 26, would have arrived here at 16. Keep your hopes up though


Also it appears the family moved around a good deal, and given the family wanted to GTFO of chechnya when shiat was hitting the fan, it does not speak to a family that really wants anything to do with anything particularly messy. Oh sure they may not like the Russians, but so what, Estonians, Latvians, Lithuanians, Ukrainians etc don't care for Russians either. And given that both uncles have dissed the older brother, and one uncle dissed both brothers, yeah this seems something far simpler than any sort of political/religious/whatever cause.

Dzhokar is a pretty common name in the 'stans.


Dzhokar sounds a little like Joker.

There were two of them, so Two Faces, so to speak?

Noone knows why they did it.  It's a conundrum, a Riddle.

I'm sensing a pattern.
