This is a real-life episode of 24.  Seriously.

Wondered when that would arrive from some pissant North Dakota town that didn't need it but snagged a DHS grant anyway.

Okay, these guys robbed a store, shot people and threw explosives at police.  How does this make them the Marathon bombers?

To hell with that.  We're in a full-on Michael Bay production.

s2s2s2: Biological Ali: be a couple of white guys

Calling them white is like calling an activist-atheist religious. Technically could be considered correct, by definition, but not at all what people meant when they said "white guy".

Not to mention they aren't all that "white" looking.

Shryke: Ctrl-Alt-Del: It is a right-wing nut job.

I am guessing you lump everyone you don't like in to that category. Sorry mate.


I'm sorry that you don't like the fact that most Muslim jihadists are reactionary rightwingers, but that doesn't change the fact that they are.

I mean, I get the fact that most reactionary American rightwing extremists really hate and fear Muslims, but that doesn't magically transform them into liberals. They're hardcore religious nut jobs - anti-abortion, anti-evolution, anti-pornography, opposed to sex outside of marriage, in favor of harsh anti-drug laws, opposed to feminism, virulently anti-homosexual. Those sure as shiat ain't "leftie" positions, dude.  Substitute "Jesus" for "Allah" and they could be Pat Robertson

So yeah, most of the folks speculating the last few days that these were rightwing nutjobs were correct. Of course, any speculation that they were teabaggers, or anti-government libertarian types were just plain wrong. They're not Aryan Nation, or  Army of God, or Sovereign Citizens, just their Muslim counterparts

Not sure how he could have escaped through that show of force last night. If I had to guess I'd say he was either wounded and bled out somewhere and they haven't found the body or he ate a gun and they haven't found the body yet.

The fark do you mean, "just"?

Then they turn to the side and spit, and eye the batter warily as the catcher makes hand signals.

snowshovel: I'm surprised it took the PD that long to turn off their feed. Social media sure makes hostage situations and police standoffs kind of strange.

[i50.tinypic.com image 647x343]


BPD doesn't have control over that. Those feeds are set up by people with scanners hooked up to their computers.

Some police agencies have encrypted channels they can turn to, but often times they are too expensive to have in the first place, or only smaller units (such as SWAT) are equipped with them.

In my area anything the police have to say over the radio can be heard and rebroadcast to the whole world and there is nothing we can do about it.

News now reporting Dhokhar was able to withdraw money from an ATM last night.  BIG scoop there, guys.  BIG scoop.

jonathan_L: muck4doo: jonathan_L: muck4doo: Thanks for the answer. My son is going to graduate from Baylor next month, and is in the Army ROTC(was originally in Air Force ROTC, but funding got cut). They've had him studying Russian for four years.

Is he good with languages? Another 1 or 2 languages under his belt will really help him.

Yes, he is. I'm sure not. He speaks English, Russian, and Spanish.

If he has time/inclination, I'd suggest he also look into Farsi/Persian or one of the Afghan languages.


Knowing him, he would love that. I'm Mexican(raised in CA), his mom is half Jewish/half Italian. He speaks better Spanish than I do.

Captain Steroid: Strategeryz0r: So all the police scanners are offline right? Broadcastify and tunein aren't working for me at the moment.

Thanks. I could have never been a cop. All that would happen is me saying "WTF did you guys say!?! I can't understand anything - can you speak more clearly d-bags!"

Silly Jesus: They are using a military style vehicle to approach.  FARK has told me that those are a waste of money for police departments to have and a needless militarization of the police.  FARK, you have let me down in so many ways the past couple days.  Why FARK, why?!?!


it's needed for situations like this, but every other time they just used it to raid the homes of people suspected of doing bad. I should know, about 10 years ago I woke up to have a militarized swat team of local cops holding assault rifles to my face. Turned out there was someone who gave false information about a family member staying with us and they decided to go full on Waco on the house my elderly parents were staying in. I happened to be visiting from college. Totally unnecessary and they found absolutely nothing but nearly gave everyone staying there a heart attack as well as putting everyone in danger since it was mostly local cops wanting to use their new toys

You really need to adjust the brightness on your monitor. Either that of you classify people using an Oreo cookie as your reference.


There's nothing wrong with his monitor or his classifications. There might, however, be something seriously wrong with your eyes. See an optometrist.
