Werent Chechens the fellas that like to take Elementary Schools hostage and such?

They're pretty hardcore as far as terrorists go. Kind of like the Baader-Meinhof group/Red Army Faction.

vernonFL: Maybe this was a Borat sketch gone horribly wrong?


FTFL: Tamerlan says he loves the movie "Borat," even though some of the jokes are a bit too much.

Yeah, Borat was "too much." Link

BraveNewCheneyWorld: You grouped yourself with them as soon as you decided to white knight for them. Who's fault is that?


You're reading comprehension is so poor. You came in here posting that you couldn't wait for everyone to eat crow because Fark was full of people who ranted this was a right-wing nut job thing. In reality it was one possible scenario discussed out of dozens. You're cherry-picking what is a minor element of days worth of thousand-post threads to make yourself feel vindicated and smug, and accuse someone of white-knighting when they call you on it. Keep posting, it's amusing.

Somebody said it was these guys. I think they should get a chicken dinner.

Darth_Lukecash: They've been in America for 10 years. The youngest was 9. The case could be made that they were Americanized, or at least exposed to American ideas and ways.

These weren't people who just came here on a whim.


Yep, it's as domestic as it can be without being perpetrated by natural born Americans.

Assuming that these guys ARE Chechens and they did actually perform this bombing, isn't the 2014 Winter Olympics scheduled to be held in Russia not far from Georgia and the whole Chechen mess?

Killing random people for your particular flavor of God does not a revolution make.  I hope they get this guy to custody cause I doubt he'll live through the arraignment.

Cops chasing a guy on foot now.
 
2013-04-19 08:33:57 AM  
Ok, so Channel 4 has this guy's uncle on the phone, and he said that the older guy is a loser who didn't finish HS and the younger kid had a bright future.

So..older brother has nothing going for him, and convinces little brother- who seems to be going somewhere- that the Great Satan is the reason.

No worries, you're just having a stroke.
 
2013-04-19 08:34:02 AM  
listening to CBS news, they just spoke with the uncle.  The first few minutes were OK, now it's just torturing the guy.

BraveNewCheneyWorld: InmanRoshi: BraveNewCheneyWorld: Remember just a few days ago when scores of you Dem loyalists insisted that this must be various right wing domestic groups?  Go F*ck Yourselves.

Yep, you only went 1 for 2 on domestic terrorism this week with the TeaTard caught mailing in Ricin to Senators.

Politics of Peace

Except I'm not a right winger. I don't have to be a right winger to point out that Dem loyalists on this site are routinely a bunch of farking assholes with their habit of blaming their political opponents for everything that goes wrong.


Yes you are, do not lie.

And sorry, but these two lived in the US and if it turns out Islamic fundamentalism is their motivation, they're right wing.

If I were to take a wild guess, I have a hunch that Dokka Umarov is going to be a popular name in the news cycle very soon.

"Mr. Vladimir Putin, please pick up the white courtesy phone..."

Black hoodie on the run!
 
2013-04-19 08:34:29 AM  

BraveNewCheneyWorld: It was more than one or 2 people here claiming that they were domestic right wingers. Look, if you don't like how your cohorts make you look right now, maybe you should remember that for next time. Lying about it isn't going to help you.


Yep, Domestic Right Wingers just went 2 for 3 with the Texas DA Attacks and TeaTards mailing Ricin to politicians.    Some Farkers really jumped the gun assuming they could go 3 for 3.    They must feel really embarrassed right now.
 
2013-04-19 08:34:32 AM

17 Willow park. Foot chase of SP.
 
2013-04-19 08:34:43 AM  
I just woke up. The one day I go to bed early and all this happens.  Like half the people I know are locked down or staying home.

So it turns out we weren't living in a Tom Clancy novel, but a John Ringo one?

/Oh John Ringo No!

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.

If you are in Boston right now: Take off your hoodie!!! Seriously, trust me.

Not to get all macabre here, but any word on the whereabouts of the parents?
 
2013-04-19 08:35:05 AM  

Bit'O'Gristle: Shoutingsilence: The more I think about the stranger the situation gets.  Why would the two most wanted men in America rob a convenience store?  Possibly to cause a distraction so the rest of their cell can escape?  Ugh, my brain is too tired to think logically after watching this madness unfold.

/My guess would be (as to the reason for such idiocy) They were out of money, every law enforcement agency, federal agency, and redneck hunter was after their ass, and they  felt trapped and desperate for cash and transport.  They had close to 0 chance to get away, hence why they were wearing bomb vests.  They won't be captured alive, and they know it. I'm sure that in most if not all police officers minds now, you see this surviving guy, you light him up, and keep shooting until he stops twitching. They wouldn't admit that publicly of course, but I would bet all the money in my pockets against all the money in your pockets that the local and state police are loaded for bear and spoiling for a fight.


You'd be wrong.  The scanner has been filled with chatter from officers making sure every person on the ground has "less lethal" ammo if they have long guns.

Footchase on Willow Park near Dexter.  That's in the search area.  Black hoodie... not right but who knows.

Cybernetic: Coiled Hot 1: dittybopper: zerkalo: farking chechens

Wait:  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.


THIS
You almost feel bad for the people in cluding 'ol Janet, that is wasn't a white guy who either came back from the military, blaming abortions or hates Obama? because they have invested so much into that theory I am sure that they can't believe that they could be wrong?

Was he one day away from retirement, too?
 
2013-04-19 08:35:16 AM  
Holy crap they STILL haven't caught the guy? I wanted to wake up with him caught damnit!

And once again the Internet completely fails at identifying the suspects properly. That poor Indian kid's family.

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.

Damn. I am so sorry to hear that.
 
2013-04-19 08:35:38 AM  

Elegy: office_despot: I can't help give a short laugh about all last night's FARK speculation as to the ethnicity of the perpetrators.  Chechen is literally as caucasian as you can get.

Yeah, but it's also about as Muslim as you can get, which is as non-white as you can get, leaving us with really white no -whites.

Amirite?


Ethnicity and Religion - they're not the same thing you know.

lol. yeah those pesky right wingers that don't believe in charging interest.

just give it up shill
 
2013-04-19 08:35:51 AM  
Caucasians, literally.

"The Chechen Republic, commonly referred to as Chechnya, also spelled Chechnia or Chechenia, sometimes referred to as Ichkeria, is a federal subject of Russia. It is located in the southeastern part of Europe in the North Caucasus mountains."

I think Johannes Hirn might be a POI in this matter, even if he only took a few pictures and had a small interview with Tamerlan back in 2010.

CNN going nuts - reporter freaking, says she can smell smoke, cars swarming, helicopter hovering. Officers running, dog barking.

My elderly mother keeps CNN on all day anyway and she hasn't been getting ANY sleep this week. Keeps calling me at 6am EDT from California.
