No. White, American citizens.Religion, if any, unknown.

Nah, it's known.  They're muslims.

So Chechnyan-born radical jihadists.

Maybe - maybe not. Fark has been wrong about everything else so far - so I won't be taking anybody here's word for one single thing.

o5iiawah: tenpoundsofcheese: Where are all the farkers who were trying to weave the story that these people were Tea Party members?

Are they busily looking through pictures of Tea Party events to see if they can still make a connection?

There are still a few holdouts who are trying to convince us that two dudes of Chehen descent are automatically tea party members.


Obviously, they are white religious fundamentalists resisting big government oppression.

Please feel free to turn Chechnya into a smoldering parking lot.  We won't complain any more.

s2s2s2: To the first part, I already covered that. To the second part, yes, there is. I'm sure you can figure out context and syntax on your own.

If you can't, just imagine how you felt about anyone that said "I bet it's Muslims".


You said "born of hope", which is a commentary on the person's mental state and as such has nothing to do with syntax nor context.

Now, if you're citing someone saying some iteration of "I bet it's ________" as "hopeful speculating" and then saying: "I saw a lot of hopeful speculating that they were white. I heard very little speculating, otherwise. Anyone I did see speculating non-white wasn't doing it hopefully."

...the only real message you're sending is that you haven't actually read any of the threads. Which I guess you also mentioned, but it's just odd that you'd go out of your way to make a statement based on such incomplete knowledge of the content of those threads rather than, I don't know, maybe actually reading one of them to see what was being said.

Unless this is supposed to be some meta commentary about people speculating based on poor and incomplete information or something.

100 Watt Walrus: Summary for those just starting their coffee:

Apparent convenience store robbery
MIT cop responds, these clowns shoot him multiple times
They carjack somebody
(gap in my knowledge)
At some point they're in an SUV that may have been a stolen police vehicle
They shoot at the cops and throw and/or plant grenades and/or IEDs
(No kidding, on the scanner there was something akin to "Shots fired! Shots fired! Grenade! Grenade! Grenade!", and there's a YouTube video out there with half a minute of sustained gunfire)
Running firefight
"Black Hat" shot multiple times, possibly run over, possibly injured by bomb strapped to chest
"White Hat" escapes
"Black Hat" taken to Beth Israel, dies
Code Black (usually means bomb or bomb threat) at area hospital, but NOT Beth Israel
"White Hat" spotted (twice?) but gets away, possibly in another firefight
Now at large.

/Oh, and at some point an innocent who was very much in the wrong place at the wrong time spent 20m face-down on the ground with a robot probing him, then he was stripped and put in the back of a police vehicle before being cleared.

And we've got cops, FBI, Homeland Security, National Guard, HumVees, and at one point something described as a "tank."
I know this sounds like I'm Michael-Bay-ing you, but really, seriously, I'm not.


The new GTA game sounds awesome, though. :P

\ Thanks, dude.

/ you KNOW this will be a big deal folks, bigger than my silly alegory
 
2013-04-19 09:58:55 AM
This smacks of an FBI disinformation campaign (NTTAWWT). There were five bombs total. So there has to be at least five people involved. Two guys carrying in five backpacks would have drawn immediate attention. Yet they only speak of two, the identities of which they are not releasing. They probably have a pretty good idea of who the other three are, but want to engender a false sense of safety in them. I suspect we are going to hear about a SWAP operation in a few days.

indarwinsshadow: I was watching this (here in Canada) on the CBC and thought, it's going to make life absolute hell for Muslims living in America and the west. It appears that it's going to be a long religious war without an end in sight. And I don't think the west is going to win. Couple of reasons. We're not ruthless enough anymore. When our ancestors got into it with Muslim countries in the past, we went in an slaughtered every man, woman and child. I'm not advocating genocide, but what's the alternative at this rate. A slow war or small cuts? They come and kill and terrorize America and the west year after year after year without an end in sight. How long can and will Americans put up with that? Maybe we need to learn to be more like the Russians. You go in, and you crush the country (Chechnya). I'm not saying it's right, but perhaps if you chose a significant target like Medina or Mecca and destroyed it and then said "next time, it's Pakistan, or Palestine, or Saudi Arabia" perhaps the message might sink in. What's the alternative I wonder?

I know it's not a good way, but what else is there to do? Fight an endless religious battle against an enemy that has time, nut cases, and breeds like rats?


All you have to do is kill The Big Guy and they have nothing to fight for.

2013-04-19 09:59:22 AM
Just because the entire public didn't know what they looked like till yesterday, doesn't mean police didn't already know.  It's quite possible that they've been on their trail since Monday, and only released their images after their trail ran cold.  And staying in Boston my seem stupid, but a criminal is more liking to be caught when they're on the run if... they are on the run.  If they can hole up somewhere for a few days/weeks, out of the public eye, then try to leave after they are suspected to be out of Boston, that could work.  Hasn't anyone seen The Shield?

Regardless, in the internet age, these guys are going to be found.  They are the internet's most wanted, and the internet never sleeps.

FriarReb98: somedude210: UMass Dartmouth is closed:

UMass Dartmouth has learned that a person being sought in connection with the Boston Marathon bombing has been identified as a student registered at UMass Dartmouth.
The campus is closed.
Individuals on campus should shelter in place unless instructed otherwise.

This... this is farked up.  My sister lives a half, maaaabye a full mile from campus (we can see the turbine from her porch).  My house is ten minutes away.


Easy.  That's far enough.

BarkingUnicorn: dababler: Everyone is describing the brothers as super polite, good athletes, decent students, good people so....WHY THE fark DID THEY DO IT?!

They were bullied.


A lot of psychopaths are extremely polite, humble, decent people. Like Pickton the pig farmer in Canada. He was very nice until he got his handcuffs on you. Then not so much.

/the strange thing is many of them are absolute pigs living in squalor but they are polite pigs
/someone said H.H. Holmes wasn't typical because he went to university and got his medical degree and prospered whereas in general psychopaths tend to just enough to get by.

Magorn: Fissile: Even now the Tea-hadists on Fox are trying to spin this by calling this pair "Russians".   Chechens are not Russians, they are not even Slavic.   No one will admit that our "good Muslim" friends have repeatedly turned on Murica and farked up its shiat.

actually the Chechens ARE russians, at least according to Russia, many Chechens disagreed, and the was some unpleasantness you may recall from a few years back as they worked out thier disagreements.  BTW "Russian" is not an ethnicity,  Russia proper has about 3 dozen distinct ethnic groups and "slavic" was a racial classification only to the Nazis, so your tail is flashing there a little


===================

There are numerous ethnic groups in Russian, not just 3.  In Russia Jew is considered a nationality,  it doesn't matter if the person is religious or not.    The Nazis did not invent the concept of "Slav",  Slavic people self identified as Slavic for centuries.    These Chechens may be Russian "citizens", but they are not Russian nor are they ethnic Slavic.    Now can now go back to gluing your face to Fox News.

ha-ha-guy: yukichigai: 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.

Yeah, I can keep addresses out of it.

I think they're mostly concerned with other things though, like the gal who tweeted pictures of the snipers on her shed.  Had that been the right house those snipers would have been pretty well farked.

They should go haul her in and sit on her for 24 hours or so, just as an object lesson that using Twitter to attention whore during police ops is not okay.  I mean, take all the pictures you want, but post them after this all over.


At least she didn't squat down and draw a map in the sand

I'm not denying that people were snarking about it being TP type folks.  But, there were plenty of others jumping instantly on the muslim wagon too.

Point is, imo, there was not a concerted effort to paint the suspect either way.  Especially compared to the MSM.
