GungFu: ACunningPlan: GungFu: ACunningPlan: One of the most interesting insights into Tamerlan's personality so far comes from a photo album, titled "Will Box For Passport," that photographer Johannes Hirn took of the slain suspect. Tamerlan was apparently a boxer who hoped to gain citizenship by being selected for the U.S. Olympic team: "Unless his native Chechnya becomes independent, Tamerlan says he would rather compete for the United States than for Russia," Hirn wrote.Other captions paint Tamerlan as a devoted Muslim. "I'm very religious," he says at one point, noting that he does not smoke or drink alchol. "There are no values anymore," he says, worrying that "people can't control themselves."Tamerlan also appears isolated and bewildered by American life. "I don't have a single American friend," he laments, despite living in the United States for five years. "I don't understand them."Maybe this is why he targeted a sporting event; and maybe being a devout Muslim had nothing to do with this?Huh?He wanted to gain US citizenship by being selected for the US Olympic team: maybe that's why he bombed an international sporting event? Radicalized Muslim is a theory, but let's face it - given his background, this bloke's political beef should be with Russia [not the US] - why not hit Russian targets [embassies, Russian emigres homes etc, etc.] within the US.It was just a thought & perhaps not a smart one:)Ahh, yeah...you've given it more thought than I have, to be honest. I still don't get the thinking though. I've only considered that it was a large public event and would in likelihood be reported on globally if their plan succeeded. His boxing, sporting background a coincidence.Still confused as to why they never had some manifesto prepared. I thought some reddit nerd would have found a Youtube posting or something by now.
Cybernetic: Coiled Hot 1: dittybopper: zerkalo: farking chechensWait: I was under the impression that it was right wing domestic terrorism. I mean, based on the speculation on new shows and on a lot of people on Fark, I thought it was the next Timothy McVeigh.This...A lot of crow shall be eaten today.No it won't. At least not publicly. They'll just save up whatever bile they have left and use it the next time an opportunity presents itself.

MugzyBrown: Let's see, an armed terrorist held up, dangerous to arrest.Why not just blow up the building with a hellfire missile. I've been told this is a perfectly legal and approprate strategy when it happens in other countries. I'm sure we'd all support it right now.
Pichu0102: HotWingConspiracy: Pichu0102: So what's the chances of retaliation attacks against Muslim Americans because of this guy?That started immediately after the bombing.Any fatalities in those attacks?
Pichu0102: So what's the chances of retaliation attacks against Muslim Americans because of this guy?
Cletus C.: Pichu0102: So what's the chances of retaliation attacks against Muslim Americans because of this guy?Zero? Call me a dreamer.
thiefofdreams: danielem1: Boston PD are asking all not to tweet or post any information from their scanners.The have asked that locations not be specifically used. I as well as others have kept up on updates. But out of respect I will no longer use addresses.
Imperialism: Real Twitter account?https://twitter.com/Dzhokhar_
heap: scanner update: 'disregaahd' repeated frequently.also suspicious boxes.
LessO2: After this, the next version of Grand Theft Auto is gonna be AWESOME!
Shryke: Kittypie070: Shryke: There must several dozen Fark Lefties in hysterics this morning. Aw.whaI am perfectly calm in fact been falling asleep for the last hour.cry moarNot you. Just a bunch of em in the original Boston thread insisting or praying this was a right wing nut job, etc.
epocalypse: technically correct.
nekom: Likely to backfire on them, though. Next time Russia sends some tanks into Chechnya, do you really think the U.S. is going to protest?
GiantRex: Galileo's Daughter: Suspect claims to have "Internet intelligence". Did 4chan turn to the dark side?4chan is chaotic neutral. They're as dark as they are light.
Peki: namegoeshere: wolfzr2: All scanner feeds are down for me now.Could they (police) have crashed them on purpose? Is that possible?Considering we were still posting addresses after they'd asked the media not to?I wouldn't be surprised.
Ctrl-Alt-Del: It is a right-wing nut job.
Uranus Megahertz: Have a Cambridge scanner feed going on iPhone. It sounds like they may have him but waiting to hear confirmation.
Earguy: Just wondering if InfoWars New York Post is still going with the cover-up/conspiracy idea, that the FBI suspects are not the real guys, and the two guys they identified via reddit and 4chan are the real guys.
Frowzy: Live scanner feed:http://www.ustream.tv/channel/ma-rt-9-window-cam
magores: Dzhokar sounds a little like Joker.
Maud Dib: Awww, shall I fetch your fainting couch?

I've been told this is a perfectly legal and approprate strategy when it happens in other countries. I'm sure we'd all support it right now.No. I want this guy extraordinarily renditioned.
epocalypse: well, they are inarguably caucasian, so I guess anyone assuming that they were white is technically correct.
modesto: Lt. Cheese Weasel: Chris Matthews was rushed to a local hospital after learning that the suspects were not white guys.Except they are white guys.
duenor: 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.
Cybernetic: Just came over the police scanner:"He is posting online, 'I will kill all of you as you killed my brother.'"
Dancin_In_Anson: Chechens eh?Playing out like a Tom Clancy novel.
GoldSpider: Sorry Fark, I guess the grand teabagger roundup you had planned will have to wait.
Grand_Moff_Joseph: Cybernetic: Just came over the police scanner:"He is posting online, 'I will kill all of you as you killed my brother.'"WHAT THE FARK?!?! HE'S ON THE SCANNER???
Uranus Is Huge!: Most of all, I'd like to thank Fark's resident, right-wing, gun nut, self-persecuted martyrs who are doing their best to derail this thread into a whiny, partisan, gun-rights debate. Way to keep your eye on the ball.
HeathenHealer: LessO2: After this, the next version of Grand Theft Auto is gonna be AWESOME!After waking up and reading through most of what has happened that was my first thought. This is GTA being played out in real life. He's up to 5 star alert.
